An eminent Shia scholar and a high official were taken into custody and detained under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) by anti-Shia biased administration of Haripur, Khyber-Pukhtoonkhwa province.
Shiite News Correspondent reported here on Saturday that Allama Waheed Abbas Kazmi and Nayyar Abbas Jafari were arrested and imprisoned in Dasu Jail Kohistan for their only sin that they wanted to exercise the legitimate inalienable rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution of Pakistan.
Allama Kazmi is Secretary for Organizing of the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen KP chapter and Nayyar Abbas Jafari is assistant director of Bait ul Maal. They were making arrangements to hold a mourning congregation (Majlis-e-Aza) at Saeen Sahaili Road that is known as a hub of such religious activities.
Shia Muslims and area residents are witness to the fact that Majlis-e-Aza are regularly held in this area. But the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf’s provincial government is trying to please the Yazidi takfiri nasbi fanatics of Taliban and their affiliates by holding talks with the constitutionally banned terrorist outfit TTP and by denying the legitimate Constitutional right to the peaceful and law abiding Shia Muslims in Hindko-Hazara areas.
