IIC Condemns Violence Against Shi’ites In Pakistan

The Islamic Information Center strongly condemns the atrocities being committed by Taliban and related Takfiri forces in Pakistan against Shia Muslims. According to news, nearly three dozen Shi’ite civilians are killed in daily attacks from the Taliban fighters. Such atrocities are a violation of human rights, and IIC believes that the Pakistani government should take immediate action to prevent further bloodshed.

Furthermore, IIC calls upon the international community to also condemn the attacks that have destroyed countless families, and threaten to destabilize peace efforts throughout the region.

In recent days, there have been bombings, gun attacks, abductions, and beheadings of civilians in the Parachinar, Kurram Agency, Dera Ismail Khan, and Hangu areas of Pakistan. All the victims are of the Shi’ite branch of Islam, and displayed evidence of torture. Fighters are believed to have crossed the border from Afghanistan, or be Takfiri fighters from Pakistan. Despite the fact that local and international media organizations have brought worldwide attention to these attacks, the Pakistani government has not taken any action to halt the violence or restore peace.
