The tragic incident of Parachanar has left the whole nation in mourning; Two-days Sog (mourning) will be observed - Hamid Moosavi

 ISLAMABAD, January 22: The Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the tragic incident of Parachanar has left the whole nation mourning and sobbing. Had all points of National Action Plan been acted upon and hurdles not created, Pakistan would have become a hub of peace. Two-days Sog (mourning) will be observed on the Parachanar Tragedy on 21 and 22 January. Whole Pakistani nation must pledge to support Pakistan’s armed forces in defending the motherland. National Action Plan was partially implemented only in a few particular areas, rulers and politicians have been impeding its implementation in internal Sindh, Punjab and Federal Capital even today. Government’s relaxation for the banned organizations is meaningful, rulers must not make terrorists as respectable by offering them sectarian shelters. Extremist organizations were not banned due to sectarian associations rather they were proscribed for their involvement in terrorist activities. There is no sectarian conflict in Pakistan and therefore, all patriotic and faithful followers of Islam must jointly act against terrorist proscribed organizations without any discrimination. He said this while addressing to a workshop of Mukhtar Organization. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that terrorism is a threat to the whole world of humanity  while associating it with any particular religion, sect, or country is itself terrorism. Terrorist attack in Turkey’s city of Istanbol killed three and half dozen people in a program to mark new year, not a single day passes in Iraq without a suicide attack or a bomb blast, recent terrorist attacks in Libya and Afghanistan in which an ambassador of UAE also got killed. Since 9/11 the frequency of terrorist attacks drastically increased in the Muslim countries, Pakistan is being punished as a front-line state against terrorism while more than seventy thousand precious lives have been lost, billions of dollars spent and cities and towns are left destroyed, innocent children of APS Peshawar killed, Bacha Khan University targeted, dozens of lawers killed in Quetta, members of security forces targeted selectively, bloodshed at Dargah Shah Noorani Balochistan, while today’s tragic incident of terrorism near Eidgah, Sabzimandi. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that it is an even bigger tragedy that terrorism is being committed on the name of Islam in the same way as Banu Umayyads acquired power on the name of Islam while Banu Abbas used the name of Ahl-e-Bait (A.S) only get power for themselves, while in Pakistan, dictatorship of Zia ul Haq used the name of Shariyat to throw Pakistan in unbearable issues and problems. He said that truth is always bitter in taste, our forefathers stated truth even at the peaks of spears and therefore, speaking truth in front of the oppressors and cruel rulers has been our tradition. Point-2 of NAP was related to the formation of special courts whose tenure has been ended. These special courts were formed as the judiciary was afraid of terrorists and judges felt unsafe while sentencing punishments as even the senior judges were also targeted by the terrorists which led to the formation of special military courts. Now the strange logic is being presented that in presence of the Judiciary, military courts are not needed. They must remember that this judicial system was also present when the decision about the formation of military courts was taken therefore, military courts under the Pakistan’s armed forces must be restored and action on all points of NAP must be ensured. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the world must be updated with the verdict that terrorism has no connection with Islam, accusing Muslims for all kinds of terrorist incidents occurring in the world is raising hatred and enmity towards Muslims. He said that we had mentioned our opinion before three decades that “Terrorists know no religion, sect or country but they are only terrorists and must be seen and dealt in the same manner”. Dozens of groups have been proscribed in Pakistan, it is impossible to control terrorism without clutching those groups with iron hands. Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that our eternal enemy India blames Pakistan for even the minutest incidents, someone must ask Moodi who is involved in terrorist attacks occurring in Pakistan? Who committed the tragic terrorist attack in Parachanar today? Government must expose the true face of the terrorist India in front of the whole world and must mention that it was India who broke Pakistan into two pieces, imposed four wars against Pakistan and threatened Pakistan in 1974 through her nuclear tests. Had Pakistan not attained the nuclear capability for herself, India would have waged fifth war against Pakistan. Meanwhile, the TNFJ’s Ayyam e Sog Committee was formed on the Parachanar incident, Dr. S. Zaman was appointed as convener while Samar ul Hassan will be the secretary of the committee.
