Karachi: Shia Muslims stage rallies here on Friday to protest against the bomb attacks by the terrorists that destroyed the sacred shrine of Hazrat Uwais Qarni (RA) and Hazrat Ammar Yasir (RA) in al-Raqqa, Syria.
The rallies and demonstrations were staged outside Shia mosques after Friday prayers under the aegis of Majlis-e- Wahdat-e-Muslimeen. The protestors raised slogans against the foreign-funded takfiri terrorists and their masters for sacrilege of the sacred shrines of the loyal companions of Hazrat Mohammad (Peace Be upon Him). They also carried banners and placards to express their anger and displeasure against the despotic rulers who, they said, were playing proxy war of the Zionist Lobby in the region.
Such rallies and demos were held outside Jamey Masjid Darbar-e-Hussaini Malir, Jamey Masjid Bu Turab (AS) Azizabad, Jamey Masjid Jafaria North Karachi, Jamey Masjid Imam Moosa Kazim (AS) Korangi Crossing and Aza Khan-e-Sughra.
Allama Shafqat Sheerazi, Allama Hassan Salahuddin, Maulana Baqar Zaidi, Yaqoob Hussaini, Maulana Ali Anwar, Mubashir Zaidi, Ahsan Abbas, Ali Hussain Naqvi and other officials of the MWM spoke to the protestors.
They denounced the takfiri terrorists groups for desecration of the holy shrines saying that those trying to hide their ugly face in the name of the sanctity of companions of Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) in Pakistan never condemned their al-Qaeda affiliated allies in Syria and Iraq for sacrilege of the holy shrines.
They urged the world conscience and human rights groups to take notice of the worst and heinous crimes of the ferocious terrorists and press the United Nations, OIC and Arab League to change their pro-terrorists policies that was tantamount to their complicity in these crimes.
They urged Pakistan government to desist from becoming a party to the Syrian internal affairs by joining pro-Israel U.S.-led alliance of unelected regimes of some Arab Muslim countries. They demanded that either Pakistan supports anti-Zionist camp publicly or remain neutral. They warned that there was no third option for Pakistan in this war of terrorists on innocent Muslims.
They demanded that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his government and Pakistani parliament should condemn the bombardment on the sacred shrines of Hazrat Uwais Qarni (RA) and Hazrat Ammar Yasir (RA) forthwith.
