Notorious terrorists of outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba (Army of Yazid) attacked an electoral contestant of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen in the premises of the office of the District Election Officer of Malir on Thursday.
Syed Sajjad Akbar went to the office of the District Election Commission Malir to get the nomination form seeking candidature to contest the elections to National Assembly from the constituency NA-257 Malir Karachi.
The terrorists of the notorious but banned Yazidi group attacked him and thrashed him severely. They also vainly tried to kill him. Luckily, his life was saved. Police and rangersâ€™ cops were present there but they did no action against the terrorists.
Those who attacked Mr. Sajjad Akbar hailed from Muttahida Deeni Mahaz, an electoral alliance of pro-takfiri nasbi group of extremist deobandi groups. Now outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba has taken the shelter of Ahl-e-Sunnat wal Jamaat
Shia parties and leaders and their allied Sunni leaders have condemned the attack and said that the Muttahida Deeni Mahaz was scared of the power of ballot to be used in favour of Shia Muslims hence they attacked Sajjad Akbar.
