According to Reuters, clashes confined to areas in and around the capital at the weekend spilled over on Monday into two towns in the volatile northwest.
Tensions are high this month as Shias mark Muharram, an annual period of mourning which has often sparked bouts of violence.

Attacks on Pakistan’s Shias, who make up about a fifth of the population of 180 million, have worsened in recent years.
Most of the attacks are the work of extremists affiliated with banned groups, such as the Tehrik eTaliban Pakistan , Sipah e Sahaba Pakistan or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, who intend to put the Shia Population under their influence , so much so that they can dictate their terms in the Government .
Hundreds of Shias were killed in bombings and other attacks last year, including incidents in which children on their way to school were gunned down and doctors heading for work were shot.
And the real cause of all this Sectarianism is the Patronage of the PML – N led Punjab & Federal Government which is not only Patronizing the elements which openly insult the Pakistani Armed Forces Martyrs and regards the terrorist and Killer of Pakistani Forces and Population as Martyrs.
As Now the Pakistani Armed Forces have taken their course to teach these traitors of the Nation a Lesson, at the same time Such Incidents of Sectarianism were allowed by the Punjab Government, so the concentration of the Establishment should be checked and their attention should be diverted and entangled in matters more serious then the action against the terrorist , and traitors of Pakistan.
The Incident of attack of Wahabi SSP members , from the Mosque Ghulam ullah , on the Participants of the Procession of Ashura was a well Planned , and coordinated effort , as now all the of evidences from the call of the attack on Tweeter to their supporters to the pelting of the stones from the Roof Top of the Mosque , and then finally firing on the Mourners Prove that the Punjab Government is a Part and Parcel of the Coordinated and Planned Incident , as all the collected evidences from the venue leads to the same conclusion.
