Two condemned Deobandi takfiri terrorists banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi/ASWJ (Sipah-e-Sahaba) were hanged at the Karachi Central Jail Tuesday morning after an anti-terrorism court (ATC) decided to uphold its decision to execute them.
Both convicts – Attaullah alias Arif aka Qasim and Muhammed Azim alias Sharif were responsible for the targeted murder of Shia doctor Ali Raza in Karachi’s Soldier Bazaar area in 2001.
They were sentenced to death in 2004 but remained in prison due to the six year moratorium on capital punishment imposed by the PPP-led government and continued by PMLN government until Peshawar Massacre of Schoolchildren last year.
“They were hanged at 6:30 this morning and their bodies have been handed to their relatives,” a prison official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
During the time of the executions, security in and around the prison was kept high.
Following the hanging, bodies of the two men were handed over to their respective families.
Twenty two prisoners have been hanged since the federal government lifted the moratorium on capital punishment in the wake of the Peshawar school attack.
It is relevant to add here that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi/Sipah-e-Sahaba are now called ASWJ and Deobandi parties such as JUIF and JUI-Sami are allies of the banned Deobandi takfiri outfit that is also an ally of outlawed Deobandi takfiri Taliban and LeJ terrorists also work for Taliban and Wahhabi-takfiri al-Qaeda in all over Pakistan.
