The prayer leader-cum-seminary teacher of Jamia Masjid-o-Madressa Islamia, Qari Ahsanullah Rasheed, was

shot dead on Wednesday evening while he was teaching Quran to the students, Bilal Colony police said.

Three armed men came to the mosque on a motorcycle, witnesses said. One of the three entered the mosque and shot the AhleSunnat Clerics in the head, killing him on the spot. When he went outside, he saw his accomplices had already escaped. He tried to kick-start the motorcycle but as a mob approached him, he started running. He also fired at the crowd, injuring a man in the shoulder, SP Salman Hussain, the New Karachi division police chief said.  The killer was then handed over to the police.

The accused was later identified as Kashif Shakoor alias Bilal, who lives in Quaidabad. During interrogation, the assassin said he was associated with a militant outfit of Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba. “He was directed by someone from Waziristan to kill the Ahle Hadith Cleric on suspicion of being a police informer,” said the SP citing the suspect.

The victim, Qari Rasheed, had been associated with the mosque for the past 15 years. The killer and his victim both were from the Ahle Hadith sect, said SP Hussain.

Unconfirmed reports suggested they were also associated with the Jamaatud Dawa but its spokesperson denied, saying the organisation had no links with the mosque, its administration or the men.

Sources in Police department said that the killer of Ahle Hadith cleric Kashif was an activists of Sipah-e-Sahaba and also working for outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban. He killed the cleric to put the blame of his killing on Shiite Muslims but he had failed in his conspiracy to ignite sectarian strife by killing Ahle Hadith cleric.

The arrest of the killer of Ahle Hadith cleric exposed the evil designs of Sipah-e-Sahaba (YAzeed) and Taliban that they were involved in the killing of not only Shia and Sunni (Beralvi) clerics and people but they also killed their opponents of deoband and Ahle Hadith sect.
