Pre-Muharram shia killings in Karachi

 

2 days before the start of muharram,6 shias got killed in the biggest city of pakistan i.e karachi.

 

Federal Government and its policies

 

Almost a week before the start of this holy month,a provincial minister of ruling party(in federation as well as in punjab which is biggest and most resourceful province of pakistan) appeared on tv in a press conference and announced that there will be no majalis and juloos(processions) but those who are registered with government so we can manage their security effectively(you all know about effective security of shias in pakistan-sarcasm) 

section 144 was applied which prohibit an assembly of more than ten people in an area.

on 3rd day of muharram,in the city of Gujranwala,punjab 

 

Imam of the Imam bargha in Shahrukh Colony was killed while he was in the middle of recitation.

Two worshippers were killed in a separate firing incident the same morning at an Imam bargha in the Mominpur area.

 

you can read about the news here.

 

A point which is to be noted is that Gujranwala was a relatively peaceful city and there was almost none shia killing and shia-sunni fighting.

Here is a video of Ashura procession in Gujranwala

takfiri terrorists attacked an Imam Bargah and injured several Shiites in Shahdad Kot, Sindh province on 1st muharram

 

Sindh province’s District Thatta staged a sit-in outside of the area police station on Saturday to protest against the armed attack on a Majlis-e-Aza in which nine Shiites were injured on Friday night.

 

Protests were arranged for both incidents in their own areas.

 

In Karachi, intelligence agencies captured two terrorists of outlawed Taliban foiling their bid to attack Ashura procession.They were captured on 8 november.

Another important event that took place was the immense pressure of Government of punjab province on the administration of Muhammadi masjid Gulberg,Lahore.

 

Now this is something very technical.

First of all,you guys should know about the speaker who was banned to recite majlis.

 

His name is Syed jawaad naqvi.He is very famous in iran as well as pakistan and he is principle of an islamic seminary here in lahore.He used to teach philosophy in Qum,iran.

He has also delivered several lectures to the youth of iran and baseejis.He wrote a book on velvet revolution which is quite famous in iran.

He has wrote several books in urdu too.He is student of Ayatullah Jawaadi Amoli.

 

Now the thing is,this guy never fear of anyone and criticizes the wrong policies of government and other institutions bravely.

 

He was supposed to recite 10 majalis in that specific mosque.He spoke openly in his first majlis.

i was in majlis myself.

you can watch the majlis here

 

After 1st majlis authorities pressurized mosque's administration to stop the syed.Few guys who were in administration met with Syed Jawaad Naqvi and discussed their issues and asked him to not to say something against govt,or politicians or army or anyone and just recite what is on books and not to talk about current affairs and stuff like that but he refused.

 

He recited his 2nd majlis at the same place.

 

Before the start of his 3rd majlis,his security guard who was going in the premises of mosque with his concealed weapon was stopped by police.Police claimed he was breaching the section 144 which states it is illegal to showcase any weapon.But the security guard said that he was carrying it under his shirt.Long story short,police arrested him but when the guys who were attending majlis knew about this,they protested and police had to free the guy.they still have his weapon.

 

After this incident police talked to administration and after their talks administration refused to accommodate syed jawaad naqvi for further majalis.There was huge protests against the weak behavior of mosque's administration.

 

Here is video of protest in masjid where the youth is chanting the slogans of Labbyk Ya Hussain (as) and Hihaat minna zilla and demanding to listen to syed jawaad naqvi and none else.They were angry on the behavior of administration who was agreeing with punjab govt.

 

He is continuing with his other majalis as scheduled in Aale imran school,lahore.

 

News article about his ban.


A short clip from his speech that made authorities uncomfortable. 

 

what happened with the majalis of Allama Jawad Naqvi, was he banned? 

 

Check my post kindly.

On Friday 25 Oct 2013, Colonel (retired) Shuja Khanzada, Shahbaz Sharif’s trusted lieutenant and Environment Minister of Punjab, announced that this time the month of Moharram will be regulated by the Punjab government with the following measures:

1. All unregistered Shia meetings (majalis) and processions (jaloos) will be banned.

2. Every Shia speaker will have to obtain a government license, or he/she will not be allowed to address the majalis.

3. Shia speakers will not be allowed to provoke people.

4. Shias will not be allowed to use loudspeakers for the majalis.

MUZAFFARGARH, Nov 2: The district administration has issued gagging orders for 33 ulema (scholars) and zakireen (orators) of Shia and Sunni sects ahead of Muharram to bar them from delivering provocative speeches in the district

What is happening in Punjab is certainly not unprecedented as similar attempts of curtailing Azadari have been made before as well. However the difference this time around is that we the Shiites are no longer united, I have seen shia groups on Facebook (and know of many people in person) who are actually supporting the ban on Agha Jawad, out of personal dislike/hatred. There are prominent Shiites in Lahore, which have been bought out by the government, and are often seen propagating for the government. One such “Allama” (the use of term here is purely sarcastic) takes pride in being the blue eyed boy of the Sharifs, and even on a day like Ashure, would first  shower praises on the “khadim-e-Ala” and only then will mourn the Imam.

This just goes to show how successful the American Shi'a Islam has been in a place like Pakistan, where so much of the population still looks up to the US an ideal ...

As the brother mentioned, there are more than just one, and I have purposely avoided taking names here ,because I don’t want the topic to become person specific.
