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.
Shia are being targeted because they stand for social justice, economic equality, and egalitarianism. This is something that the forces of obscurantism and elitism do not like.
All pakistamis should be greatful as it was shia who established Pakistan. Jinnah zindabad Pakistan zindabad.
Please don't say it like that we all feel the same pain when innocent people die. Shia or sunni come laters
This is another Slap on CJ and all leaders.
This is to be condemned by all sane human beings, regardless of religion, sect , ethnicity and nationality. Why do our headlines say "shia killing" . Why not person , or son or human being, or father or brother or husband or even muslim. By retaining these headlines we are being as divisive as the killers themselves
Hats off ET for showing the matter as it should be portrayed . Genocide should be shown as genocide.
@Shyam: you are right, it seems that way.
Stop Shia Killing and arrest the killers ASAP
"The one aware of oppression, the aid to it, and the pleased with it, all three are partners."
Look and Identify the oprressor and oppressed.
Will teh two nation theory apply to Shia and Sunnis
Killing of any human being irrespective of one's religious beliefs is to be condemned in strongest terms and is a heinous crime. Unfortunately in Pakistan everyone thinks that his particular sect/belief is the only right path (irrespective whether he follows its true teachings) and want his individual/sect's beliefs thrust on others. Everyone is conditioned and influenced by the family and the environment in which one is brought up. There is no tolerance to listen to another person's point of view, never mind open debate. There seems to be a conspiracy of the majority against minorities. There are Sunnis who would like Shia's to be declared as Non-Muslims. Why not leave it to Allah/God to judge. LET EVERYONE FIND HIS OWN WAY TO SALVATION.
@MastMaula: please do elaborate with some examples
Happens in India also.
