Speaking on the occasion, MWMâ€™s central leaders Maulana Ali Anwar Jafri, Mohammad Mehdi and other leaders said that thousands of people have participated in the rallies and demonstration to mourn the Kohistan Tragedy. These rallies were staged after Friday prayers.
They said that killing 19 innocent Shia Muslims and burning of Quran were parts of one conspiracy that is hatched against Muslim Ummah and Pakistan.
Speaking at central demonstration near Jamia Masjid Malir Baraf Khana, they demanded that terrorists who are agents of the U.S. and Israel must be arrested forthwith. They demanded that relations with the U.S. must be broken off for burning of Holy Quran.
The protestors were lifting banners and placards inscribed with slogans such as Down with U.S.A., Down with Israel, Down with Terrorism, Arrest the killers of martyrs in Kohistan Tragedy. They also blamed Indian agents active in Pakistan in the bloodshed.
The speakers said that 45 Shia Muslims were massacred in Parachinar terrorism and 19 of Gilgit-Baltistan were martyred in Kohistan district and these attacks are proofs of security agencies failure against the terrorists.
They also expressed concern that the superior judiciary takes notice of a slap but they take no suo motu action on Parachinar and Kohistan tragedies. They said this attitude pose question on justice system for ordinary citizens.
They said that all these conspiracies of U.S., Israel and India were aimed at creating anarchy in Gilgit-Baltistan like they did with Balochistan.
