SRINAGAR: Expressing shock, sorrow and grief over the bomb blast in a Shia Masjid during Friday prayers in Shikarpur city of Pakistans Sindh Province in which 61 people were killed and scores injured, Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani Saturday said that perpetrators of such incidents were enemies of the Islam and humanity and they deserve to be hanged.
Appealing Pakistani government and its intelligence agencies to immediately locate these murderers, Geelani expressed sympathy and condolence with the bereaved families.
In a statement from New Delhi veteran Kashmiri leader said, Kashmiri people are with the victims in this hour of grief. Although the foreign agencies are involved in spreading the sectarian differences in Pakistan but these conspiracies get the raw material from within Pakistan and the Takfiri and Khwarij type ill-informed Molvies are responsible for the mess.
These Molvies are far away from the kind of justice system Islam has brought and they are preaching and propagating their own sects instead of true Islam. These people have very aggressive attitude towards other Muslims belonging to different schools of thoughts Geelani said..
Kashmiri leader claimed that he has credible reports that some people related to the Zionist lobby and the Mosad were actively working as Muslim scholars in Pakistan and other Muslim countries and were very skillfully spreading the sectarian differences among the Muslims.
Shia Muslims have played a very important role in the creation and formation of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and no true Muslim and patriotic Pakistani can separate them from themselves. They are an important part of the Muslim community and the Ummah and any harm to them is the attack on the unity of the Ummah, Geelani added.
Geelani said that the imperialistic powers of the world are terrified by the unity of Muslims so they have formulated an international conspiracy to divide the Muslims on sectarian lines. It is very delicate and serious situation on which a sincere and close attention should be paid and the Muslim rulers, Intellectuals and the true scholars of Islam have a big responsibility in this regard. Their role is imperative and very essential for the whole of Muslim Ummah, the Hurriyat (G) chairman said.
