Protest in London against shia killing

Recommended Posts

The target killings of Shias have once again emerged in Pakistan, causing immense concern within the Pakistani community, both those inside and outside Pakistan. The MWM leader Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimeen Allamah Nasir Abbas Jafari has declared a hunger strike since Friday 13th May 2016. However, the Government of Pakistan and Law Enforcement Agencies have not yet taken any serious notice.

To show our support for the oppressed people of Pakistan, we have decided to call for a vigil. We urge all communities to show their support for the brothers in Pakistan by showing up tonight at the vigil.

Venue: Pakistan High Commission
34-36 Lowndes Square
London SW1X 9JN

vigils and protests are completely pointless. this will require government level discussion. what moves have been made to engage with MPs? 

I would strongly suggest that instead of useless protests which do nothing but give people a chance to appear on TV/ social media. organise the british people to create/ sign a petition here:

https://petition.parliament.uk/help 

if you can get 100,000 signatures, then the issue must be discussed in the houses of parliament. use celebrities, counsellors and media to raise the profile of the cause, which will force the prime minister to address is, and force nawaz sharif to respond. and when sharif inevitably does nothing - even further pressure can be placed upon our government. we could even get the muslim council of britain involved, as well as the new muslim mayor of london

    • I am so sorry to hear that. Absolutely heartbreaking news. May Allah grant all of you patience. Inna Lilah Wa inna ilayhi rajioon.
    • I would not be responding if it was?. Question is why is it acceptable in your minds?.
    • Usul al‑Madhhab (Doctrines Particular to Sects) 1. There is no question as to the necessity of appointment of the Imam, leader or ruler of an Islamic society. The point of difference, however, is that the Ash'arites say that the appointment of the Imam is an obligation of the people themselves, and base their argument on quoted traditional evidence (adillah naqliyyah). The Mu'tazilites and the Zaydiyyah, too, consider the appoint­ment of the Imam the duty of the people, but base their argument on rational reasons (adillah ‘aqliyyah). The lmamiyyah Shiites, in accordance with the belief in Divine Grace (al‑Lutf), believe the appointment of the Imam to be incumbent upon God. https://www.al-islam.org/al-tawhid/vol1-n2/shiism-relation-various-islamic-sects-dr-abulqasim-gorji/shiism-relation-various#usul-al‑madhhab-doctrines-particular-sects
