Pakistan Govt. Must end Anti Shia Moves : Grand Ayatollah Hussein Noori Hamedani

Senior Iranian jurisprudent has called Pakistani government to take measures against anti-Shia measures demanding Shia and Sunni communities to expand unity. 

Grand Ayatollah Hussein Noori Hamedani, prominent Shia jurisprudent, issued a statement urging Pakistani authorities and international bodies to put an end to recent incidents against Pakistani Shia community. 

Top scholar in his message expressed regret over the unsatisfactory news from across the world of Islam that a group of oppressed people, from Shia community in Pakistan to the people in Palestinian lands, are harassed by colonial powers led by the US and Zionists. 

He referred to extension of jail term for prominent Bahraini cleric Shiekh Salman and the Shia community in Bahrain under the worst atrocities of their arrogant rulers, serving US objectives, a clear violation of human rights. 

The statement added,” On the other hand is the Takfiri (excommunication) and ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria are bringing irretrievable damages to image of Islam. 

Grand Ayatollah Noori Hamedani in his message called Shia and Sunni communities to maintain unity warning against crimes committed in Iraq, Pakistan, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria and Palestine vowing that the era of oppression, injustice and inequality will soon end. 

Iranian scholar also urged Pakistani authorities and international bodies to take immediate measures to put an end to recent incidents. 

Top jurisprudent, grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, in a separate message warned against harassment of Pakistani Shia demanding the government to take measures against hostile moves which might endanger Islamic unity. 

He said,” We are doing our best to lead friendly and fraternal ties with Pakistan government and nation though these hostile moves are carried out by Takfiri and Wahhabi agents.” 

Top scholar called anti-Shia violence as unbearable calling Pakistani governments to take immediate measures to end the irrational moves which endanger Muslim unity. 

In a recent clash between a group of Shia and extremist Sunni Ahle Sunnat-Wal-Jamaat (ASWJ) in the Handhi area in Karachi, one Shia was killed and four others wounded.
