Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is the armed wing of Wahabiyat. They follow the edicts of Deoband and their monetary umbilical cord is connected to Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other middle- east emirates. I’m humbly asking the reverend scholars of Deoband, Nadwatul Uloom, Al-Azhar, Riyad and Nejd: “Sir, is it permissible in Islam to shed the blood of INNOCENTS in the name of RELIGION?” I know sir, your answer would be an explicit NO. If it is the case then why you are not coming out openly and condemning these heinous acts? Do little soul search sirs; go into retrospect; check if even once this brutalized Shia community ever reacted with the same ferocity in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran. Instead, some years back, Allam Sajid Naqvi, the leader of Shia Organization Tehreek-e-Jafriya had said: “We shall keep putting our martyrs into the graves and we shall not respond!”
Why the religious institutions of Sunni Muslims are not coming forward? Why are they not condemning these barbaric acts? Why are they not asking their followers to stop this madness? Why are they not taking initiative and telling the Shia community upfront what they are expected to do to buy peace?
Regarding the Government of Pakistan, the least is said the better it is. For all practical purposes it doesn’t exist. I’m not well aware of the complications involved and if it is possible for the Government of India to take up the matter to international forums. Meanwhile, the human right organizations of India and the West should stave off their anti-Iran plank. The shias of Pakistan, Iraq or Afghanistan are also human beings. Ask the perpetrators and their backers to stop this senseless one-sided killing.
Zulm phir zulm hai, barhta hai to mit jata hai,
Khoon phir khoon hai tapke ga to jum jai ga.
