KARACHI: Two explosions have occurred near Karachi’s Abul Hassan Isphahani Road, DawnNews reported.

At least 38 people have been killed and several others injured as a result. The dead and injured have been rushed to local hospitals.

One explosion happened outside a Shia mosque in Abbas Town.

Police official Azhar Iqbal says a bomb exploded as people were leaving evening prayers, AP reported.

One of the blasts hit close to an area dominated by Shia Muslims, senior police official Ghulam Shabir Sheikh told AFP.

“Women and children were among the dead and injured,” Fayaz Laghari, police chief of Sindh province told AFP.

A cloud of smoke was witnessed from the site of the incident. The blasts were heard from far distances.

Reports said that nearby flats have caught fire or have been destroyed due to the severity of the blasts. Several shops have also been seriously damaged by the explosions.

“The explosion was so massive it jolted the entire area,” said an eyewitness Ali. “Two flats and nearby shops caught fire after the explosion and balconies of various buildings collapsed.”

Another witness said women and children who were shopping nearby were wounded, Reuters reported.

Electricity in the area has disappeared, reports said.

Windows in the area have also been shattered. Police and rangers have also cordoned off the area.

Rescue services have rushed to the site of the blasts.

Condemnation of blasts

Political and religious leaders have strongly condemned the blasts in Abbas Town.

President Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah, Governor Sindh Ishratul Ibad have all condemned the blasts.

MQM chief Altaf Hussain, ANP chief Asfandyar Wali, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and Sunni Tehrik chief Sarwat Ejaz Qadri have also issued condemnations.

President Zardari telephoned CM Sindh Qaim Ali Shah and announced compensation of Rs15 lakhs for relatives of the dead and Rs10 lakhs for the injured.

The president along with PM Raja Pervez Ashraf have called upon Interior Minister Rehman Malik to submit a report to them on the incident.

Governor Sindh Ishratul Ibad has directed authorities to provide all necessary requirements for the injured.

The Jafaria Alliance have called for a strike tomorrow in protest over the blasts.

The MQM has announced a day of mourning. The Majlis-e-Wahdat Muslimeen (MWM) has also called for a mourning period.

Shops and businesses in Karachi will also be shut tomorrow along with private schools.

There was recently a shia cleric who said after the quetta blast, that if one more blast happens then all the matters shall

be taken into our hands.. which means, Sipah-e-Mehdi will come out from the shadows (Y) Ready to kick some serious wahabi

A** :dry: ...

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ)

.....what I dont get is that Pakistani Shias are always such hardcore supporters of Iran and Hezb.....but where is the return support (even if just moral/verbal backing)? Iran is always so busy bending over to help the Wahhabi dogs in Palestine and screaming this and that on "Quds Day," but has not done anything to help the Shias in Pakistan. Shias worldwide need to unite as one or slowly and systematically face annihilation.

[4:75] How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying: Our Lord! Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh, give us from thy presence some protecting friend! Oh, give us from Thy presence some defender!

Yes it is very strange that Iran is so quiet on this matter.

Corrupt Zardari is responsible. He is one STUBBORN mule. He INSULTED the SUPREME court to the HILT - which in Pakistan is the closest to the VELAYAT-E-FAQIH.

FOUR relatives of Shehla Raza have died and the CIRCLE has COMPLETED.

Musharraf still had some terror on the Americans and they did not dare, nor did India dare to do all this during Musharraf time.

Baluchistan, the situation was ignited during Musharraf time using the RAPE of a LADY DOCTOR.

I urge people NOT to speculate because, DO NOT SPREAD RUMORS.

Do not point fingers WITHOUT, PROOF.

It's not as simple as you portray. You ask how other groups did it....well for starters all of them (Hezb) included had MAJOR funding, training, weapons, etc. from Iran. Now of course, Hezb proved themselves worthy and lived up to the task. Don't misunderstand my statements, I am a big fan and advocate of Ahmedinejad, Iran, and the Iranian people - some of the most ethical loyal folks. BUT Iran made the decision to establish itself as the model for islamic revolution and power for the rest of the world. They decided to embark on that road - and now must follow through it. Honestly, the more they blindly support Palestine but don't even lift a finger for the Shias in Pakistan or Bahrain, it seems more and more a political game rather than a true Shia/Islamic revivalist movement (which genuinely saddens me). If they had isolated themselves like Japan and simply stuck to their own internal, iranian affairs I could excuse their absence.

Pakistan is literally a country of utter CHAOS - you can't just go kill sipah e sahaba as it is not just one person, but entrenched into every level of Paksitani society and gov't even to the highest levels. This sectarian strife was never an Issue in Pakistan 30yrs ago and Sunni/Shiite used to get along very well and intermarry and everything - this has all happened after General Zia and the exportation of Saudi funded Wahhabism. What Pakistan really needs is some true leadership who can revive those ties between shias and the mainstream Sunnis who are against this senseless killing to provide protection for its citizens.
