shohada quettaAn Iranian lawmaker says the West remains silent on the massacre of Shias in order to promote the plan to create a rift among Shia and Sunni Muslims.

“Sowing discord among Muslims is one of the main tools used by the global arrogance to commit Muslim genocide.

Unfortunately, some extremist groups which claim to be Islamist have become tools in their (the global arrogance) hands,” Seyyed Hossein Naqavi-Hosseini said Friday.
He also pointed to the recent massacre of Shia Muslims in the city of Quetta in southwestern Pakistan and said this ominous phenomenon is not limited to Pakistan and the agents of the global arrogance promote it in other Muslim countries.

“The global arrogance is even trying to define Bahrain’s revolution as conflict between Shia and Sunni and not as protests for achieving freedom,” Naqavi-Hosseini added.

On February 16, a bombing tore through the crowded vegetable market in the town of Hazara, on the outskirts of Quetta in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan Province and killed nearly 90 Shia Muslims.

Following the massacre, protesters took to the streets across Pakistan and other countries including neighboring Afghanistan to denounce the violence against Shia Muslims.

Violence has escalated against Shia Muslims in different parts of Pakistan in recent months. Since the beginning of 2012, hundreds of Shias have been killed in the country.
