At least ten Shia Muslims have been killed in separate attacks by unknown gunmen in Pakistan's southwestern province of Balochistan, Press TV reports.

Armed masked men opened fire on a passenger van in Barori road area of Quetta -- the provincial capital of Balochistan province, killing at least seven Shia men and wounding four others on Saturday.

The gunmen opened fire on another vehicle moments later on Sabzol road area of Quetta, wounding two other Shia Muslims.

The rest were killed in two separate attacks.

Meanwhile, in another incident, the militants shot dead a policeman in Qali Chaltan road area. The assailants fled the scene of incident.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks yet.

The offensive came amid reports of massive protests of Shia Muslims against the killings of Shia people in the volatile country.

About 2,500 people held a sit-in outside parliament in Islamabad on Friday, calling on the government to take immediate action against the forces involved in the sectarian killings.

Demonstrations were also held in the cities of Multan, Muzaffarabad, and Quetta, where protesters chanted slogans condemning the Shia killings.

Anti-Shia militant groups have been engaged in a violent campaign against Shias over the past few years.

And their meant to be Muslim? Didn't they just miss the whole point of Islam? A peaceful religion that teaches us to treat other people from all backgrounds kindly and peacefully ... I will never get why Sunni's hate Shia's so much, total BS. Unless their not Muslim in the first place?

This sad part is that this has become a common occurrence in Pakistan. More Shias have been murdered domestically in Pakistan than any other country in last 10 years, and the irony that Pakistan was created for 'Muslims'. :wacko:

It's obvious the corrupt incompetent government can't handle this on their own, they should get outside help.

I think now I understand why some Pakistanis don't even enjoy talking about Pakistan anymore.

They're sick and tired of media associated with Pakistan which features negative/pessimistic information like this spewing on 247 basis.

I read negative news about Iran and a lot of other places, but when you attach the word "killing" onto it, you feel sick to your stomach and it could become unbearable.

Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom in a statement criticized crimes against Pakistani Shia and called Wahhabi excommunication a force that undermines power of Islamic society.

The statement which was released to condemn anti Shia assassinations in Pakistan called the Wahhabism a movement that has challenged the power of Islamic Ummah (society).

The statement denounced extremist and excommunicating moves which has undermined unity and brought the most disunity in Muslim community.

Part of the statement runs, "Now that the wave of Islamic Awakening has spread to the Muslim world and calls all Muslims to boost their unity and keep vigilant against the plots of the enemies."

According to the statement, Shia-Sunni disagreement and widening the gap between the two denominations is a waste of power of Islam, it seems that proximity of Islamic schools of thought and struggling for boosting Islamic unity is the most efficient way to confront the extremist and excommunicating moves.

Iranian society of Seminary teachers expressed his condolences over the killing of terrorist groups against Shia Muslims in Pakistan demanding the government to prevent similar crimes against Shia and to prosecute the criminals behind the act.

A complete wheel-jam and shutter-down strike paralysing all routine and business activities was observed in the provincial capital on Sunday to protest the recent wave of Shia killings. The strike was called by the Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) and was backed by the Balochistan National Party (BNP) and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) to protest the sectarian violence that has killed 18 people in the last four days.

All shops, markets, restaurants and pharmacies in Liaquat Bazar, Mezan Chowk, Abdul Sattar Road, Prince Road, Jinnah Road, Zarghoon Road, Brewery Road, Hazara Town and Marriabad remained closed.

The strike was observed partially in Saryab and the nearby areas as most of the markets and shops remained opened. Stringent security measures were taken to maintain law and order, with the deployment of paramilitary troops, Frontier Corps (FC), police and other law enforcement agencies in and around Quetta. Security personnel had been deployed in the city to restore order but panic and uncertainty continued to plague the city as people preferred to stay indoors and most of the streets and roads wore a deserted look.

During a meeting to review law and order situation in the province, Balochistan Chief Minister Aslam Raisani warned that the province was being pushed to civil war through a well-meditated plan. He said the government would launch a targeted operation in Quetta to restore peace and order in the city. Police Department would be restructured and above-board actions would be taken against culprits and target killers, he added. The chief minister announced the decision in a high-level meeting held to review the law and order situation in the province after the fresh wave of ethnic and sectarian killings in Quetta. Raisani urged religious leaders to play their role to normalise the situation in the province. He was also briefed about the latest situation of law and order in Quetta.
