The elderly father and his son, martyred in a targeted attack by takfiri nasbi terrorists on Wednesday, have been laid to rest on Thursday.
Namaz-e-janaza of the martyrs was held at Islamic Research Centre premises. Maulana Mohammad Ali led the namaz-e-janaza. Thousands of people attended the funeral procession.
They were chanting slogans Labbaik Ya Hussain (AS). They also raised slogans against the government, security and law enforcement agencies and judiciary for their failure to protect Shia Muslim citizens of Pakistan.
The funeral procession passed through Shahrah-e-Pakistan and finally reached Wadi-e-Hussain (AS) graveyard where the bodies of the martyrs were buried.
Shia parties, leaders, scholars and notables who attended the funeral, condemned the criminal silence and negligence of the government and its machinery against the terrorists.
On the other hand, Allama Hassan Zafar Naqvi of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen issued a statement in which he said that terrorists were working on payroll of the United States. He said that under a well-planned conspiracy, children of pioneers of Pakistan are being killed mercilessly.
