PESHAWAR - In order to condemn the killings of Hazara community members in Quetta in the Saturday blast, dozens of activists of Shia Ulema Council (SUC), Imamia Students Organization (ISO), Majlisi Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM) on Sunday staged a protest demonstration and asked the government to provide security to Hazara people in Balochistan.

They alleged that US, Israel and India were involved in terrorism and blasts and the government must sever diplomatic ties with these countries forthwith.

Amid tight security arrangements, Sher Shah Suri Road was blocked for traffic as the angry workers and activists of SUC and MWM and ISO protested in front of Peshawar Press Club, where they chanted slogans and blamed the government for its failure in providing security to the Shia community in Pakistan.

Led by Provincial President of SUC Mumtaz Ali Awan, MWM’s Zahid Akhundzada, Mohammad Ali Karbalani, ISO President Syed Mohammad Ali and others, the protestors alleged that under a pre-panned conspiracy, Shai community members are being killed, which is highly regrettable.

They asked government to take immediate steps to control killings of Shias.

They said that hidden hands are active in the country to create misunderstanding between Sunni and Shia communities.
