Rawalpindi Ashura procession under attack, Shiites burnt alive, mosques, Imam Bargahs and market incinerated
Terrorists attacked Ashura processions, burnt Shiites alive and also put on fire Shia mosques, Imam Bargahs and a cloth market in Rawalpindi on Friday.
Shiite News Correspondent reported that a Yazidi Friday prayer leader of Deobandi Masjid Ghulamullah was inciting the supporters making a pro-Yazid and anti-Imam Hussain (AS) hate-speech.
As soon as the Ashura procession that began from Colonel Maqbool Imam Bargah, reached Fountain Chowk Kashmir Bazaar, the Yazidi terrorists and fanatics hiding inside the mosque opened firing upon the azadar (mourners).
Many of their abettors were standing on the rooftop of Taleem ul Quran seminary that began pelting the mourners with stones. That caused a stampede and in the meantime, the terrorists abducted some of the mourners including Shiites and Sunnis. The abductees were taken inside the mosque where they were burnt alive.
The Yazidi terrorists then stormed into the Colonel Maqbool Imam Bargah and ransacked everything there and finally put the building on fire. They continued their terrorist activity till the late in the night during which they also set a cloth market on fire in which at least people lost their lives.
At midnight, the terrorists put Qadeemi Imam Bargah on fire where the mourning procession had earlier ended peacefully.
Shia and Sunni parties of Pakistan have condemned the unilateral aggressive attack on the peaceful mourners of Imam Hussain (AS) and other martyrs of Karbala. They demanded publicly hanging of the terrorists involved in the attack and also death penalty for the Yazidi Friday prayer leader whose provocative hate-speech incited the fanatics to resort to violence.
