Some known anti-takfiri figures of Pakistani civil society gathered outside the residence of Sindh’s Chief Minister (aka CM House) in Karachi on Monday evening to protest the suicide bombing inside a Shia mosque and Imam Bargah in Shikarpur that left around 61 Shia Muslim worshippers (namazis) martyred.

Civil society activists gathered to reach CM House and stage protest in front of the main gate but the police began action and after hot words exchanged between them, the activists began staging sit-in at PIDC near the CM House. Later, the heirs and relatives of Shia martyrs also joined them.
They demanded that it was time for the chief minister and Rangers DG to hand in their resignations for their failure in shouldering their prime responsibility. They shouted slogans against the Deobandi takfiri terrorist outfit Taliban, CM Qaim Ali Shah and Rangers and blamed them for the deaths of men and children who had gone to offer their Friday prayers at the Masjid/Imam Bargah Karbala Moalla Lakhi Dar Shikarpur.
“More than 60 people embraced martyrdom in Friday’s blast and no one has said anything against this violent incident,” said Jafaria Disaster Cell’s (JDC), Syed Zafar Abbas Jafri. “More than 36 hours after the incident, people are still waiting to be treated at hospitals.”
Khurram Ali, one of the organisers and member of the National Students Federation said that the Sindh government should shift all the injured to Karachi and pay for their treatment. He vowed that they will hold a sit-in till their demands were met.
The protestors also demanded hanging of the outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba’s ringleader Aurangzeb Farooqi for Shia genocide in Sindh province.
Police blocked the road leading towards CM House by placing containers around it. No one was allowed to enter the red zone.
