SHAFAQNA – The massacre of a group of Ismailia Shiite Muslims exposed the plots of the Saudi ambassador and Mecca prayers leader to hold secret meetings with heads of the Takfiri groups,” Ahmed Iqbal Razavi said on Sunday.

Razavi’s remarks came after the Takfiri terrorists exploded a bus carrying a group of Ismailia Shiite pilgrims in the port city of Karachi on Wednesday.

“Saudi Arabia’s support for Takfiri terrorists in Pakistan is evident to everyone,” he added.

Several Pakistani political parties, including Majlis-e-Wehdatul Muslimeen, held rallies in Karachi to condemn the massacre of Shiites, and they called on the Pakistani army to follow up attack on the passenger bus.

At least 43 people were killed and 20 more injured in a gun attack on a bus carrying Ismailia Shiite Muslims in the Pakistani city of Karachi on Wednesday, police said.

A police official said six gunmen on motorcycles, appearing to be from a banned extremist group, stopped the bus and fired indiscriminately.

The bus carrying about 60 was going to an Ismailia Shite place of worship.

No group has yet said it carried out the attack.

Provincial police chief Ghulam Haider Jamali said the attack appeared to be the work of the same group involved in recent drive-by shootings of senior police officials in Karachi.

The bus was on its way to an Ismailia Shiite Muslim place of worship, police said

He said the bus was on its way to an Ismailia Shia Muslim place of worship when gunmen boarded it in the Safoora Goth area of Karachi and fired at those on board.

The attackers are said to have escaped easily.

In the last few months, several mosques belonging to religious minorities have been bombed in Pakistan.
