Protect Mourners of Imam Hussain(as)

In the wake of recent increase of incidents of sectarian violence in Pakistan, the American Shia Muslims urge the government of Pakistan to provide protection to the Mourners of Imam Hussain(as) and hold accountable those responsible for targeted killings.

The targeted killings of Shia are a barbaric attempt at sectarian and ethnic cleansing. “The government’s failure to break up the extremist groups that carry out these attacks calls into question its commitment to protect all of its citizens.”

Wahabbi militant groups such as the supposedly banned Lashkar-e Jhangvi operate with impunity even in areas where state authority is well established, such as Punjab and Karachi.

the military, law enforcement agencies and the Frontier Corps (FC) are responsible for the security of the people and they should safeguard the lives of the people belonging to a community under attack by the extremists.

National and provincial authorities should make all possible efforts to quickly apprehend and appropriately prosecute those responsible for the attacks and other crimes targeting the Shia population.

President Zardari needs to understand that the will of the government to protect ordinary people is measured by action, ”As far as protecting the Shia is concerned, Pakistan’s government has been all talk and no action.”

We will hold government of Pakistan, responsible for any future attacks on our processions and on congregations in Pakistan, so please respect our holidays.

Thank You and Regards,

really dont see a point of this post, specially when this muharram has "largely" been peaceful in Pakistan, i think it would be much more productive, if you would urge your own government to stop supporting the Bahraini regime which is directly responsible for atrocities committed against the Shiites of Bahrain.

It is easy to blame others but thank God we have religious freedom, not like other Muslim countries where Shias are not allow to practice.. We are against American Foreign policies towards Muslim world and we can express our-self openly. unfortunately, Kings and Mullahs wouldn't allow you this freedom.
