Media trial of pilgrims of Imam Reza shrine on Coronavirus pretext condemned.
Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen Sindh chapter secretary general Allama Baqir Abbas Zaidi criticized the federal and provincial governments for Coronavirus related media trial of pilgrims.
MWM leader urged Pakistan government should not try pilgrims in the media to win funds from World Health Organisation (WHO) under the pretext of Coronavirus.
He asked why federal government had not closed borders with China and did not suspend flights from Arab countries.
He said that Coronavirus originated from China and also spread across the continents while the Arab countries also suffered from it. Hence, he questioned fairness of government measures and media hype against Zaireen.
Allama Baqir noted that federal and provincial governments had scared people instead of taking concrete measures to prevent Coronavirus spread.
He expressed concern over making public the personal details of pilgrims under that pretext.
He urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to take action against malicious media trial of pilgrims of Imam Reza’s holy shrine.
The MWM leader also asked him to take notice of selling of masks and related items at exorbitant prices.
Meanwhile, Shia community lambasted the PTI government and PPP’s Sindh government over media trial of the community.
They reminded the government and the media that Coronavirus had neither originated in the sacred cities of their pilgrimage nor the virus spread to only those cities or countries.
The community condemned the malicious propaganda and biased measures against Zaireen.
They demanded breaking-off of relations with United States over influenza virus and breaking off of relations with Saudi Arabia over imposing on Pakistanis for Umrah pilgrimage.
