A protest by the leaders of the Shia Ulema Council (SUC) was stopped by law-enforcing agencies when moving towards the Sindh Assembly to submit their memorandum regarding the Ashura blast to the Assembly Secretariat, on Tuesday . According to the Shiite News Correspondent, The Shia Ulema Council, under the leader of Allama Syed Nazir Abbas Taqvi also demonstrated outside the Supreme Court registry and submitted a memorandum demanding the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) to take suo-moto action and constitute a judicial inquiry into the Ashura blast. It should also be noted that the CJP was in the city and was hearing cases in the Supreme Court registry. The leaders of SUC were not allowed to personally hand over the memorandum to the CJP due to heavy security around the premises. In the memorandum, the CJP was asked of why the senior government officials hampering into exposing the real culprits behind the Ashura tragedy as the investigation report still did not clarify whether it was a suicide attack or pre-planned blast. It also asked to why a judicial commission still not formed and who were the people arrested after the blast.
