Is there any other way to show anger in Pakistan particularly against shias. In old times, the most ignorant people of arab were fighting because they were ignorant. Now, a group in Islam emerged who are unable to digest somebody with greater knowledge and moderate thinking.

Have some decency and courage, and learn to call a spade a spade. These people are being killed because they are Shia, not because they are Muslim or Pakistani.
