Killing Of Shias In Baluchistan And Gilgit Is A Conspiracy Against National Solidarity: Altaf Hussain

Targeting a particular community is equal to thrusting the country in the inferno of sectarian strife

Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr. Altaf Hussain has said that the killing of people belonging to the Jafria school of thought in Gilgit-Baltistan and Baluchistan after verifying their identity is highly condemnable and a heinous conspiracy against national solidarity. He said that people belonging to the Hazara community in Baluchistan were being killed after being pulled off from buses because they belonged to a particular school of thought.

He said that the incidents of bloodshed were occurring in Gilgit-Baltistan as well where 25 passengers were recently put to death in a cold-blooded manner near Babusar Top after being ascertained that they belonged to the Jafria community. Likewise the incidents of targeted killings were occurring in other cities as well.

Mr. Hussain said that the targeting of one particular community was highly condemnable. He said that it was a conspiracy to thrust the country in the inferno of sectarian strife and it could bring harm to national unity and solidarity. He demanded of the government to take urgent steps for stopping the occurrence of such gruesome incidents and called for arresting the brutal killers. He sympathized with the public who had been hit by the incidents of terrorism. He urged the public to defeat all conspiracies for kindling sectarian strife by their unity.
