Biased Punjab police arrested an innocent Shia leader along with his wife, 2 sister-in-laws, 2 minor children and a disabled Shia notable and his father in unjustifiable raids in Chakwal and other parts, Shiite News reported here on Sunday.
Khuwaja Mohammad Ali was arrested from his Chakwal residence. His wife, 2 sister-in-laws and 2 minor children were also whisked away along with him. Rawalpindi Police also thrashed them severely and tortured them. They were taken to Rawalpindi where they were out behind the bars in Rwat police station. Ghulam Shabbir Joya, 55, was also held. Shiite News Correspondent reported he has served as central secretary education for the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen and now is a patient of red-cells shortage.
Police have arrested father of Mehmood Iqbal, a disabled Shia notable along with his brother Hassan Iqbal.
In another raid, Shaikh Mazhar Ali son of renowned Shia leader Allama Mirza Yousuf Hussain was also arrested. Witch-hunt against innocent and peaceful Shia Muslims has sparked off reaction from all Shiites around Pakistan and across the world. They expressed surprise that on the one hand government was releasing the notorious Taliban and other Yazidi takfiri terrorists in the guise of peace process and talks with the terrorists and on the other Shia Muslims were being implicated in false cases to please the Yazidi terrorists.
Allama Asghar Askari, Maulana Asrar Gilani, Maulana Zaigham and Seed Rizvi of the MWM met the RPO and CCPO Rawalpindi and lodged protest against the unjustifiable arrests of the innocent Shiite leaders. On their protest, the CCPO ordered immediate release of the women and children.
