him conferenceEminent and senior Shia religious scholars and prayer leaders have announced their all out support to the Shia leadership and their decision about calling-off of the sit-in, they appealed to stage, to protest against Hazara Town Quetta Tragedy. More than 40 scholars and prayer leaders spoke at a joint press conference and issued a joint communiqué at Karachi Press Club on Friday.

Those who attended press conference were: Allama Mirza Yousuf Hussain of All Pakistan Shia Action Committee, Allama Shahenshah Naqvi of Shia Ulema Council, Maulana Sadiq Taqvi of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen, Maulana Ghulam Ali Waziri, Maulana Baqar Abbas Zaidi, Maulana Haider Abbas Abidi, Maulana Naeem ul Hassan Hussaini, Maulana Shaikh Ghulam Mohammad Saleem, Maulana Razi Haider, Maulana Ahmed Ali Amini, Maulana Ali Afzaal Rizvi, Maulana Mohammad Hussain Karimi, Maulana Ali Anwar Jafri and other Shia scholars.

They appreciated the dynamic leadership of Shia religious scholars and endorsed their decision to call-off the sit-in protest saying it was right and justified since government had accepted all 20 demands with minor amendments to only 3 demands.

They disclosed that a 3-members committee was formed to coordinate with the government and oversee the implementation of the demands.

The committee comprises of Sardar Saadat Ali Hazara, Sardar Qayoom Changezi and Ms Ruqayya Hashmi. They said that the Shia religious leadership, heirs and relatives of the martyrs of Hazara Town Tragedy and Quetta Yakjehti Council jointly put 20 demands that included:

Targeted operation against terrorists in Quetta and around Quetta, stern action against the leaders of outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Sipah-e-Sahaba (now working under new name Ahl-e-Sunnat wal Jamaat), release of all the innocent Shiites and Hazara Shia Muslims, immediate payment of compensatory amounts to the heirs of martyrs of previous tragedies, payment of compensation to the heirs of martyrs of Hazara Town tragedy, injured victims and to those who suffer colossal financial losses due to havoc wrought by the huge twin blasts, withdrawal of false cases registered against Shia notables in the wake of al-Quds Day and other events, foolproof security for protection of and an end to biased attitude towards Hazara and non-Hazara Shia Muslims, students, traders and government employees in Quetta and other areas o Baluchistan, registration of cases against those outlawed terrorist groups who claim responsibility for massacre of Shia Muslims and those leaders who give statements in their favour, arrest and interrogation of those ministers of former Baluchistan government who were involved in or patronized terrorism as named in Baluchistan Assembly and at other forums, arms licenses under easy procedure for self-protection of Shiites, removal of anti-Shia graffiti and punishment to those who write such graffiti, up-gradation of Benazir Bhutto Hospital, recruitment of 5,000 Shiites in security forces in Quetta, government jobs to each heir of martyrs, at least Rs.2 million compensation for the injured victims, allotment of a free plot of 200 square yards to each martyr’s heirs, free education up to graduation level to the children of martyrs, establishment of girls and boys colleges in Hazara Town.

The Shia leaders said that all of these demands were accepted as legitimate demands.

However, Governor Baluchistan said that plots would be allotted in Jhal Magsi, 1000 Shia youths will be recruited in forces and Rs. 1 million will be paid as compensatory amount.

They said that these are minor changes to only 3 demands. They said that targeted operation was launched forthwith and many terrorists were killed and arrested.

They said in view of these facts, one could be able to understand the factual position. They said that a party that has launched a media war against Shia leadership does not represent the martyrs nor they enjoy moral authority to say anything on behalf of Hazara and non-Hazara Shia community.
