Shia Muslims’ inalienable rights and anti-Shia mindset

shiitenews shiakilling I have to pen down this article. Pakistani Shia Muslims have been victims of a deep-rooted conspiracy for a long time. Despite the fact they have always tried their best to establish unity among Muslims and between Muslims and non-Muslims, they were made to face pogrom and genocide.

Pakistani society’s extremists have taken them an “easy target” like the terrorists.  But, self-claimed non-extremists have never stood shoulder to shoulder with Shia Muslims. Instead, secular hypocrites too did their best to play religious hypocrites role.

Undeniable proof speaks louder than these words. Religious terrorists such as Sipah-e-Sahaba and like-minded outfits claimed responsibility for the massacre of Shia Muslims and violated the sanctity of Shia Islam’s creeds and rites. They are religious terrorists and hypocrites. Suicide attacks on Muslims make them allies of Al-Qaeda in Pakistan. Lashkar-e-Jhagnvi is a cover-name for Ahmed Ludhianvi’s Sipah-e-Sahaba. He threatened Shia Muslims they should not wear black suits and should not come out of their houses to participate in Muharram processions.   

Shiite News website reports 11 Shia Muslims were murdered in November 2011.  Imam Bargahs’ and Alam Pak’s sanctity was also violated.

December also witnessed the genocide in all over Pakistan including Balochistan, Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa, and Sindh in particular. Karachi comes latest in that series after Balochistan and Khyber Pukhtoonkwah’s cities.  Two Shias were killed in Karachi on December 23.

Pogrom include: baseless allegations. Details are known to all as these are open secret. Bias rules the society. Anti-Shia-ism in the decision-making process is a source of encouragement to all this.

Enemies of Pakistan and Pakistani society know Imam Hussain (A.S.) is a source of unity.  In fact, Imam Hussain (A.S.)’s battle against Yazid’ism has drawn a clear line between true Muslims and untrue Muslims. Yazid was a ruler of Umayyad dynasty that imposed his regime on Islamic Ummah. Imam Hussain (A.S.) is a source of inspiration for Muslims as well as Non-Muslims.

Recently, Jamaat-e-Islami’s student wing Islami Jamiat Talba (IJT) came out with this agenda in Punjab University. They had raised objections to holding of Hussain (A.S.) Day that is held to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (A.S.).

Syed Abul Aala Moudoodi, founding father of Jamaat-e-Islami and an ideological leader of the IJT has praised Imam Hussain (A.S.) in his speeches and writings.  He was critic of the Umayyad dynastic rule.

In Punjab University, Imamia Students Organisation (ISO) tried to hold a programme that would have been a source of unity and cohesion but IJT and some of the JI leaders did against Mr. Moudoodi’s ideology too.  Where they do stand now?   

On the other, some secular hypocrites in the ruling coalition and Opposition parties too used this mindset to further their nefarious agenda.

Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan aka Bacha Khan and his successors in the Awami National Party claimed of non-violent politics. But, Shiite News website has reported incidents where Shia Muslims, Imam Bargahs and “Alam Pak” came under attack by this party.  

On Eid al Azha, a secular hypocrite, part of the ruling coalition attacked the peaceful members of the ISO in Malir, Karachi. The attackers belonged to the MQM, part of the ruling coalition like the ANP. The MQM claims they have played uniting role of Shia-Sunni Muslims.

Sometimes, PMLN’s Rana Sanaullah Khan tried his best to side with the terrorist outfit’s figures. We see this in our society. Another fact is: should there have been non-Shia victims of the extremists, an instant practical reaction came from media, government, NGOs, international community, etc. If Shia fell victims, these self-claimed non-extremists enjoyed it saying it is inter-sectarian issue. The worse, they too played similar dirty role as we mentioned above.

Where do they all stand? Is there anything good Shia Muslims can expect from them? Pakistan’s Constitution allows Shia Muslims like other citizens of Pakistan they are free to live their lives according to their own interpretation of Quran and Sunnah. In practice, Shia Muslims are made targets of a deep-rooted plot that is unconstitutional and unacceptable for Shia Muslims. For God sake, give Shia Muslims too their inalienable rights and it is a Constitutional demand.
