Quetta has been an epic center of terrorist attacks against the Shia Community , and especially the Shia Hazara Community , but for a quite some time it has been bit peaceful , but now it looks that the terrorist has again gained some grounds in the area , as even Previously a Number of Shia Pilgrims convoys coming from Iran has been attacked , due to which a Large Number of casualties has been added to already a Huge list of Shia Community Martyrs , across Pakistan.
Previously such attacks are always claimed by the Lashkar e Jhangvi Group , which is a Proclaimed Banned Terrorist Organisation , and is the Right arm of Sipah e Sahaba Pakistan , working Under the Umbrella of Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan .
Pakistani Shia Community has been demanding a full scale Army Operation across Pakistan against the Mother Terrorist Organisation Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan , and all its associated Groups and Organisations , but the Present PML – N Government is reluctant to give a go ahead to the Operation , while the Armed forces Dissatisfied by the PML – N attitude has themselves started an Contained Operation in the North Waziristan , which is their Primary Hide Out and training Camp of all the Terrorist Organizations , But the Army Chief has said that they will retaliate with double the force , if the terrorist engage them or attack their Men and Installation Only .
But the Shia Think Tanks are of the View that if the Pakistan Army feels that they might Need any type of assistance , in the elimination of these terror groups they are ready to follow the , Syria War Example , where the Shia Men fought side by side the Syrian forces and they have even claimed a Huge successes in the elimination of the same Brand of Takfiri Terrorist , which were also sponsored by Saudi And US CIA , to create anarchy and chaos in the Country .
Shia Community makes around 25% of the 180Million Population of Pakistan. Which Lives in total Harmony with Sunni Community of the Country , as they have been enjoying good relations and friendships , even Before the Partition of the Sub Continent , the Only trouble Mongers are the Wahabi Ideological touts of the Saudi Government , who are trying to create sectarianism and Dis Integration of Pakistan.
