29th October have come and gone by Silently.
Since the evening I wasn’t feeling right about something, my heart kept sinking and I felt sad for unknown reason and then I realized that today in 29th October.
What happened on 29th October? If you can’t recall then its not your fault, a nation that picks up dead bodies on a daily basis can’t have track of all the massacres it goes through.
Exactly two years back, on 29th October 2016, Five Shias were shot killed in Karachi, three among them were real brothers, Syed Baqir Abbasi Zaidi, Nayyar Mehdi, Nasir Abbasi . Amongst the injured were their uncle Muhammad Zaki and Baqir Zaidi’s son Murtaza Zaidi (15).
Those killed were not some unknown or common people. All of them were leading figures in their fields, their faces were quite telling of their talents and intelligence. None of them were less than an institution, had they been in any other country, they would be given utmost respect and people would show them immense amount of love, not in Pakistan though. Things are different here. Nayyar Abbas was working in World bank and Nasir Abbas had worked in UN, they came to Pakistan a few days earlier to commemorate Muharram with their family members. There was a women Majlis going on inside their home when they were attacked and killed. A Few Takfiri deobandi Terrorists came on motorbikes, opened fired at them while they were sitting outside their home and attending to the guests, the terrorists fled right after that.
Token condemnation statements were issued by some certain quarters and everything went normal afterwards. Shia intelligentsia is being killed in Pakistan, a planned Genocide is taking Place, that is targeting the most prominent, learnt and famous Shias of Pakistan. Their killers are not unknown, they are holding gatherings, taking out rallies, they just held a rally in Islamabad a couple of days back, amidst chants of Shia Kafir, under Ahmed Ludhiyanvi and Aourangzeb Farooqis patronage, while the state kept looking the other way. Shias of Pakistan have had enough. I wish and pray we can get united and raise voice against this systemic genocide of the Shia Muslims of Pakistan.
Please read Fatiha for all the victims of Shia Genocide.
