SHAFAQNA – Pakistani supporters of fundamental human and cultural, religious and political rights of downtrodden and oppressed people of Saudi Arabia observed a vigil in Karachi on Tuesday night to express solidarity with Ayatollah Baqir al-Nimr, renowned religious scholar and leading figure of human rights struggle in the Wahhabi kingdom. Pro-Ayatollah supporters largely attended the rally and vigil held under the aegis of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) Karachi at Fountain Intersection near Sindh Governor House to protest the long detention of Saudi human rights leader Ayatollah Baqir al-Nimr.
Carrying the portraits of great religious scholar Baqir al-Nimr, they demanded immediate release of all human right activists including Mr. al-Nimr from Saudi prisons that are nothing but ghettos for the political opponents.
Saudi monarchy ordered crackdown on human rights activists due to their zero tolerance for human rights, cultural, social and political rights of non-Wahhabi Muslims mainly Shia Muslims and allied-Sunnis. Even women are not allowed to drive cars. Saudi police attacked al-Nimr and opened fire upon him and bundled him into a car while he was critically shot wounded.
Pakistanis joined the call from international human rights group to express solidarity with Baqir al-Nimr. The leaders of MWM and Civil society condemned the policies of Saudi regime and demanded of the International Human Rights Group to take notice of the Saudi policies which violated the basic human rights.
They said that the Saudi regime patronized the notorious outfit Daish (ISIL) aka ISIS to destroy the real face of Islam at the behest of fake state of Israeli and her most reliable allied ally United States to advance their Zionist-Capitalist agenda in the name of Islam.
