SHAFAQNA – 7th May 2004 ,was the day when more than 45 Shia Muslims worshipers embraced martyrdom on the spot due to a suicidal attack by Saudi funded proscribed terrorist outfit Sipah-e-Sahaba known as AhleSunnat-Wal-Jamaat (ASWJ).
Shia Muslims were offering Friday prayers at Jamia Masjid Haideri situated in Sindh Madressa tul Islam, where founder of Pakistan Mohammad Ali Jinnah had got education. As a matter of fact, Mr. Jinnah was a Shia Muslim .. Dozens of other worshipers martyred and 100’s were injured in the terrorist suicidal attack.
Unfortunately, police has failed to arrest the culprits involved in the ferocious act of terrorism because of Saudi-US influence and some black sheeps in the establishment support to these banned outfit. They said that Gul Hassan, a terrorist of Asif Chotu Group and Mufti Obaid Group of the banned ASWJ was mastermind of the attack. Gul Hassan was sentenced but was later released on bail.
slain SSP Chaudhry Aslam said that Gul Hassan was killed in an encounter with the police in November 2014.The police have foiled a major terrorist activity during Muharram in Karachi by killing six terrorists of the banned religious outfit, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) on Thursday morning, reported a Karachi-based daily on November 15, 2013.
Shia Muslims still waiting for justice to be done in Masjid-e-Haideri suicide attack case like 100’s of other cases of Shia Genocide in Pakistan. Banned AhleSunnat-Wal-Jamaat & Lashkar-e-Jhangvi still continues unabated genocide against Shiites with the heavy financial support of Saudi Arab.
On the one hand, Defa Harmain Council (DHC) has welcomed banned Sipah-e-Sahaba aka AhleSunnat Wal Jamaat in its fold and on the other hand banned Sipah-e-Sahaba , Ansarul Ummah , and terrorists seminaries have arranged public rallies meetings.
Federal and Punjab Governments seem to have struck a deal with them because of the Saudi pressure.
Whatever the case, it conveyed a clear message to Pakistani Shia Muslims that they are denied their inalienable rights because the said two terrorist outfits call Shia Muslims as infidel. They publicly call for genocide and pogrom of Shia Muslims.
Therefore, blood of the martyrs of May 7, 2004 call for accountability and first of all an end to all freedoms being enjoyed by the terrorists. The sacred blood of the martyrs call for exemplary punishment to all the terrorists and their patrons.
May 7, 2012 has brought this message to all. Shia Muslims reject anti-terrorism claims of the Government of Pakistan and provincial governments. Shia Muslims turn down Defa Harmain Council (DHC) .
History bears witness they all are on wrong side of history and justice. They take sides of terrorists. At least, martyrdoms at Masjid-e-Haideri tragedy demand an accountability of all these notorious terrorists and those who have ignored the sacred blood of the martyrs.
