KARACHI: Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) on Monday organised a rally in Karachi to protest against the attack on Imam Bargah Abu Talib in Quetta that claimed the lives of at least 28 people belonging to the Shia Hazara community.

Protestors raised slogans against banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and its affiliated terrorist groups as they marched from Numaish Chowrangi to Imambargah Ali Raza located on MA Jinnah road.

They were carried banners and placards inscribed with slogans, reading ‘No to terrorism’, ‘Hang the terrorists publicly’ and ‘No talks with terrorist groups’.

MWM central leader Allama Hassan Zafar Naqvi while addressing the protesters lashed out at “lenient policy” of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, a policy that he claimed was encouraging and emboldening the terrorists groups.

“These [terrorists] are the murderers of innocent people and suggestions of talks with them are tantamount to betraying the blood of more than 70,000 Pakistanis who have fallen victim to terrorism.”

Allama Naqvi demanded for an army operation against the terrorists and asked the judiciary to order for public hanging of the terrorists.
