hasno5KARACHI: The participants in a protest rally taken out by the Majlis-i-Wahdat-i-Muslimeen against targeted killings of Shia scholars, doctors, lawyers, teachers and traders staged a sit-in at the Shaheen Complex traffic intersection on Sunday.

They were chanting slogans against targeted killings of Shias, against the governor, the chief minister and the federal government.

The roads leading to CM House were sealed off by placing containers which restricted the rally to the Shaheen Complex traffic intersection.

The rally was led by Allama Mohammed Amin Shaheedi, Allama Ahmad Iqbal, Allama Hasan Zafar Naqvi, Allama Ejaz Husain, Allama Mukhtar Imami, Allama Sadiq Raza Taqvi, Maulana Baqir Zaidi, Allama Kerbalai, Maulana Aqil Musa and others.

Addressing the protesters, the MWM leaders said that until the targeted killings in the city were stopped, they would continue their protest.

They said if they were not allowed to stage their peaceful protest, they would take it to the second phase to all over Sindh, which ultimately would expand to the entire country.

They demanded an immediate crackdown on terrorists and there arrests and they were brought before media.

Their demands included that the MWM was taken on board regarding ongoing operation in Karachi; activities of the banned terrorist organisations were checked and their flags removed, and offices sealed; implementation of the Control of Loudspeaker’s Act was ensured; FIRs were registered against all those involved in delivering hate speeches; the heirs of victims of targeted killings were given Rs2.5 million per family compensation and the government bore expenses of the injured people and one of the family member was given government job and that the people belonging to the Shia community were recruited in the community police.

Allama Hasan Zafar Naqvi claimed that the rulers had failed to provide protection to the Shia community.

If the government could not protect the Shia community, it should allow them to carry weapons, he said.

Allama Amin Shaheedi said that the government had so far failed to arrest not a single terrorist involved in targeted killing of Shias.

The rulers nor had offered condolence to any bereaved family, nor had given any sort of relief to them, he added.

Earlier, the participants in the rally, including women and children holding banners, placards and party flags, marched on MA Jinnah Road.

When the rally reached near the Shaheen Complex they found the road leading to the CM House blocked by containers. At the Shaheen Complex they staged a sit-in.
