I strongly condemn all types of killings going around in the city, particularly killings on the basis of religious affiliation. Whether we are Shia or Sunni none of the sect teaches such kind of brutal conduct against anyone.

You all are requested to reject and disapprove the favor of any particular sect rather partake to re-unit the muslim ummah regardless of any differences.

@Qanoon MWM and PST are not banned organizations. And when those outfits that are actually banned can operate freely, why to waste time in discussing those that are not banned.
