In what appeared an illogical and biased reaction to the visit of Allama Sajid Naqvi, chief of Shia Ulema Council, Qazi Nisar, a pro-terrorist orator of Gilgit has announced that outlawed Sipah-e-Sahabaâ€™s leaders would also visit Gilgit.
He said that Allama Sajid Naqvi is head of outlawed Tehrik-e-Jafaraia therefore outlawed Sipah-e-Sahabaâ€™s head Ahmed Ludhianvi and Malik Ishaq of outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi should also speak to their supporters in Gilgit.
Talking to Shiite News correspondent, a political commentator said it was wrong to equate the Shia party leader with the terrorists. He said that Shia party never worked against the non-Shia population, let alone the genocide of opponent group.
â€œOutlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba and its subsidiary outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi have perpetrated genocide of Shia Muslims because of their faith and they publicly announce their agenda of pogrom to eliminate Shiites,â€ he pointed out.
He said that Allama Sajid Naqviâ€™s party was wrongly banned by Pervez Musharraf-led government because he equated the oppressed Shiites party with the perpetrators of the genocide of Shiites.
â€œShiites and their parties remain peaceful throughout the history of Pakistan. Ideology of outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is a clear violation of the laws and Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan,â€ he said.
Shia Muslims have demanded of the government to rein in the Yazidi orator Qazi Nisar and hang the perpetrators of the pogrom of Shiites publicly.
On the other hand, Allama Arif Vahidi, secretary general of Shia Ulema Council, talking to eminent Shia religious scholar Allama Shaikh Mirza Ali at the SUC head office in Rawalpindi, said that Unity of Ummat Conference in Gilgit had discouraged the agenda of disunity and hatred.
He said that pro-peace, pro-love and pro-unity Muslims were encouraged and emboldened by that conference in which Allama Sajid Naqvi was chief guest.
