Majlis-i-Wahadat-Muslameen (MWM), Tehrik-i-Nifaz-i-Fiqh-i-Jafaria ( TNFJ ) , Jafria Alliance Pakistan ( JAP ) condemned the attack and said that the government has failed to curb sectarian violence in the country.
There has been a rise in sectarian violence in Pakistan after the formation of the New Government , as now is looks that the Terrorist feel that they are at home , and can do any thing any where , and still they will be Protected , as it looks that the Present Government has not only completely surrendered to them , rather begging them for their favour to let them earn their Piece of Cake , for which they have once again come to Power . As a result the Shiite Sect Target Killing and the attacks on the Shiite High Profile Personalities and have once again intensified.
Allama Nasir Abbas a Shia cleric of TNFJ was Martyred late Sunday in Lahore, the capital of Punjab province, after addressing a religious gathering.While earlier Allama Deedar Jalbani was Martyred in the Biggest City of Pakistan , Karachi . while a little earlier the Ashura Procession in the same Rawal Pindi was attacked by the Wahabi Terrorist , resulting in several casualities and even the Markets were set ablaze by the same Mob , which have planned to attack the Procession and to set ablaze the shops of the Sunni and Shia shopkeepers to create chaos and anarchy in Pakistan.
On November 19, gunmen killed a senior Shia university director along with his driver in Lahore, while another Shia leader and his guard were killed in Karachi in early December.
Three days later, Shamsur Rehman Muawiya, Leader of Wahabi organisation Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jammat for Punjab province, was killed in Lahore , due to their Internal strife and Power struggle , but it was named as Sectarian Killing , Just to take the cover of Sectarianism to the terrorism inflicted in Pakistan by the Saudi and US Funded Banned Organisation , to continue their Policy of dis Integration of Pakistan .
As Per the Normal Atmosphere in Pakistan there is no Sectarianism in Pakistan , all the cities and even Rural Population are living harmoniously for 65 years , and enjoying their life by having good Personal , social and Business relations , for generations , but the Saudi Infested Terrorist Organisations are trying their best to Inflict sectarianism in Pakistan , so they get the Best Ingredient for the DisIntegration of Pakistan , which is their Ultimate Goal.
