55 years old Shia Syed Qamar Raza killed by Anti-Shia terrorist

Anti-Shia terrorist killed 55 years old Shia Syed Qamar Raza. Raza was ambushed by two unidentified assailants when he was returning from a walk to his apartment in Sharifabad.

Reza was critically injured in the attack and was sent to Karachi’s main hospital, where he later died.

Raza was the director of Pakistan’s IB Security Agency as well as the Secretary to Haidery Scouts.

Pakistani authorities are not doing their job in protecting Shia citizens, discrimination occurs on a daily bases and no one is taking the responsibility for this inhumane treatment.

Shia targeted violences question the Pakistan’s Security Agency’s responsibilty in their handling of the Shia Genocide. Perhaps if they had taken a more serious action, Qamar Raza would be alive right now.

11 Shia Killed as Rocket Hits Bus in Quetta

PK-busAccording to sources, a bus carrying pilgrims from Iran’s city of Tuftan to Quetta was attacked when it reached the western bypass near Hazar Ganji. Miscreants fired a rocket on the bus, overturning it.

The bus caught fire and eleven people died on the spot while many others sustained injuries.

The people from the area begun rescue services of their own while corpses and injured were shifted to hospital.

Before this, a number of such atrocities occurred due to a lack of security measures in the area. This time, the caravan was accompanied by a policeman who also fell victim to the terrorists’ barbarism.

Terrorists targeting Shia lawyers

PK-09KARACHI, Pakistan– In  a target killing incident, three innocent Shia lawyers were killed by the armed terrorists of Sipah Sahaba and Lashkar Jhangvi at Pakistan Chowk in Karachi.

According to our sources, the lawyers were on their way in a car when unidentified gunmen riding in motorbikes targeted them at Pakistan Chowk near City Court. The  gunmen opened fire from the two side of the car and the 3 shia lawyers were killed on the spot.

The terrorists managed to flee from the scene afterwards. The Shia lawyers were identified as Shakeel Jafferi, Kafeel Jafferi and Badar Munir.

“It was a target killing incident, they all were lawyers. Two of them are father and son,” a police official told, adding that the dead bodies and injured have been shifted to civil hospital Karachi for medico-legal formalities.

The Continual Killing of Shia Physicians in Pakistan

Karachi-Shia-Feb20102About 80 doctors were killed in a crescendo of target killing in 2000, and the majority were Shias. Many worked in the underserved and overpopulated areas of Karachi.

Ahmedi is, of course, almost an expletive in Pakistan. In the recent past, in Punjab, Ahmedi physicians have been killed in broad daylight. And, for all the legal recourse that the return of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry allegedly brought, no suo motus occurred, no one was apprehended and no trials were set.

Thirty-year-old Dr Babar Mannan was working in Hussaini Health Home in the Irani Camp locality of Orangi Town when two young men barged in and emptied their guns on him. In another recent episode, motorbike gunmen intercepted Dr Haider Abbas near Metroville III, killing him on the spot. In the same wave of madness, Dr Junaid Shakir and Dr Hasan Haider were killed gin New Karachi and Railway Colony respectively.

Sad, and seemingly powerless, physicians on the Dow Medical College alumni list mourn the victims. Dr Tariq Chundrigar writes poignantly: “A childhood friend of mine used to run a dental clinic in Nazimabad. He shared the clinic with a GP. This tireless, never out of temper gentleman had a following of patients that warmed one’s heart. One day, in 1989, someone walked into the GP’s clinic, pretending to be a doctor, put a gun to his head and shot him twice. And calmly walked out, to a waiting motorcycle, and rode off.This was late 2000.”

The US constitution guarantees the right to bear arms; Pakistan’s does not. De-weaponisation must be immediate, without ifs, ands, or buts. Perhaps the Supreme Court needs to step in for a government that is as usual ineffective, unwilling and incapable of protecting its citizens.

New attack in Pakistan Killed Two Shia

At least two Shia Muslims have been killed in an attack on Tuesday (5-5-2012) by Anti-Shia gunmen in Pakistan‘s troubled southwestern Balochistan province.

They were on their way from Mand area of Balochistan to Karachi on a bus when unidentified gunmen riding motorcycles intercepted the coach and gunned them down after taking them out of the bus.

The attackers managed to escape from the scene. Assistant Commissioner Mand Badal Dashti has confirmed the incident.

Pakistani security forces cordoned off the area and launched an investigation, which as usual stopped in less than a couple days, because authorities don’t want to protect the Shia.

Sipah e Sahaba Militants have killed a large group of Shia Muslims in different parts of Pakistan over the past three years.

Pakistani Shia leaders have called on the government to form a judicial commission to investigate the crimes.

 منظمة شيعة رايتس كمصدر

 الصحافيون المهتمون بتغطية شؤون الشرق الاوسط يجدون في تقارير منظمة شيعة ووتش مصدرا هاما لكونها تعنى بالتركيز على شريحة مهمة في الشرق الاوسط. فعلى سبيل المثال، من اجل دراسة  الانتهاكات ضد المتظاهرين في احداث الربيع العربي بشكل كامل، يتوجب التعرف على الصراع الذي يخوضه الشيعة من اجل نيل حقوقهم خاصة وان هذه الانتهاكات متواصلة ويتم التعتيم عليها اعلاميا.  و رد السلطات على احداث الربيع العربي كان فرصة سانحة للجناة لارتكاب المزيد من الانتهاكات والتعذيب.

وبعيدا عن العالم العربي، هناك بلاغات عن حالات ترهيب في جزء اخر من العالم مثل جنوب آسيا تهدف الى اثارة الكراهية الطائفية ضد المواطنين الشيعة يغذيها الخطاب السياسي عبر اثارة قضايا مفتعلة او اخبار كاذبة او مفبركة وتحت عناوين براقة  كالارهاب مثلا.
