Dozens of protestors were killed or injured due to firing of security forces on the tribes who were protesting after suicidal attack in Parachinar market.
Parachinar’s people and Toori and Bangash tribes declared it state terrorism blaming the security establishment and intelligence agencies for responsibility of deaths.
The protestors were of the views that security was assigned to Toori Bangash Shia volunteers for four years and no suicide attack was made during that period. But, five months ago, parachinar’s security was handed over to the military who had set up check-posts and barricades at numerous places. So doubts were cast over dubious role.
Expelled pro-Taliban persons were allowed entry at Farooqia Masjid situated in Karmi Bazar where the suicidal attack was made. Taliban terrorists are being allowed in the area that is a self-speaking proof of patronage. The tribes have condemned this partial policy and demanded that this must not be repeated.
