LAHORE – Leaders of the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) have said that the major purpose of this front is to safeguard the ideology of Pakistan and counter nefarious designs of the imperialist forces against the country.

They announced that the MWM would fully participate in the next general elections and would defeat the pro-American elements in each corner of the country.

Addressing the Quran-O-Sunnah Conference organised by a new Shia party MWM at Minar-e-Pakistan on Sunday, party head Allama Nasir Abbas Jafri declared that all the Shias of the country were now converged on a new platform for realising their religious and political rights.

Jafri warned that the MWM would lay siege to the national security institutions, president house and prime minister house if they failed further to stop the target killings of the Shia community.

Jafri maintained that the US embassy and consulates as the ‘real centers of terrorism in Pakistan’, and warned that as long as they were not close down, terrorism and target killings would not stop in Pakistan. “The Shias will expel the Americans from Pakistan if the state institutions have failed to do so,” he warned.

Claiming that MWM was a unanimous voice of the Shias in Pakistan, Jafri warned that all the political parties including the PPP could not deceive the Shia populace any further, adding that each mainstream political force had cheated the Shia community after getting their votes. He also said that Shia votes would not be given to any party who would join hands with terrorists or banned groups.

Condemning the drone attacks, he stressed the rulers for immediate halt in it by breaking the shackles of slavery.

Keeping in mind the participation of PTI leaders Ahsan Rasheed and Shahid Zulfiqar, Jafri said those who were ridiculing us should come and see the Tsunami of Hussaini people which would make clean sweep in future.

The new front of the Shia community has succeeded in displaying an impressive show of force as compare to the political parties. The charged crowd of MWM activists who had come across the country displayed a rare show of discipline by sitting under scorching heat of 45 degrees all the day.

Prominent among the MWM leaders who spoke on this occasion included Deputy Secretary General Allama Amin Shaheedi, Spokesman Allama Hasan Zafar Naqvi, ISO President Athar Imran, Shafqat Shirazi, Sakina Mehdi, Haider Ali Moosvi, Gulfam Hashmi and Mukhtar Imami.
