The biased government of Gilgit-Baltistan province has suspended 48 Shia government officials to punish them for a successful visit of MWM Chief Allama Nasir Abbas Jafri.
Orders to suspend these officers from Kachura and surrounding areas have been issued. Some days ago, the biased government had issued orders to expel Allama Nasir Abbas Jafri, secretary general of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen and ban on his entry into the province for 90 days.
Those orders evoked instant reaction from all parts of Pakistan. Thousands of people thronged Gilgit and Baltistanâ€™s streets to protest against those orders. Finally, the government had to withdraw those orders.
Analysts and observers see similar mindset behind the orders for suspension of 48 employees from their services. They said that the decision was aimed at tormenting the government employees on the ground that they are Shias.
Allama Aijaz Behishti, chief of MWM Youth Affairs has said that the government was trying to intimidate Shia officials but he warned the government that Shias were aware of the government conspiracies.
He said that government should pay attention to the culprits of Chilas and Kohistan tragedies and should take action against them.
