Pashtun scholars’ mysterious silence on Pashtun massacre in Taftan, Balochistan – by Abdul Nishapuri


Pashtun scholars, including nationalists, progressive or right-wing scholars, remain consistently silent on Deobandi ASWJ (Sipah-e-Sahaba aka Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat)’s atrocities against Shias, Sunni Barelvis and other communities.

In most recent incident, on 8 June 2014, at least 30 Pashtuns many of them from Kohat and Orakzai Agency, including women, men and children of Shia and Sunni Barelvi/Sufi backgrounds, were massacred by Deobandi ASWJ terrorists. However, there was not a single statement or column by a Pashtun leader or scholar clearly condemning ASWJ or Deobandis on this incident. It may be noted that ASWJ is the single major terror outfit that represents and unifies all major Deobandi and Salafi terror outfits operating in Pakistan including Taliban (TTP), Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), JeM etc.

Shame on those secular, nationalist or Islamist Pashtuns who remain silent or vague on Deobandi ASWJ terrorism against Pashtun Shias and Pashtun Sunni Barelvis.

Nothing is more disgusting to see secular or nationalist Pashtuns who clearly speak against Pakistan army, Punjabis, Uzbeks, Chechens etc but remain completely silent or vague on the Sipah-e-Sahaba aka ASWJ, the one entity that represents and unifies TTP, LeJ, JeM, Jundullah, Al-Qaeda and other Deobandi and Salafi terror outfits.

They clearly condemn “Pakistan army’s brutality” against “innocent Pashtuns” in Waziristan but cat takes their tongue when it comes to clear condemnation of Deobandis or ASWJ-SSP on the massacres of Shias and Sunni Barelvis.

How many of the so called secualr Pashtuns/nationalists actually mourned and clearly condemened the massacre of at least 30 Shia and Sunni Barelvi pilgrims in Taftan, many of them Pashtuns from FATA, at the hands of Deobandi terrorists of ASWJ?

And these thugs want us to respect them and believe in their discourse. Losers!

Here are a few reports by BBC Urdu which confirm that at least 10 Pashtun women were also killed by Deobandi ASWJ terrorists in Taftan, Balochistan. Most of the massacred Pashtuns belonged to Kohat and Orakzai Agency.

شیعہ زائرین کی اورکزئی ایجنسی میں تدفین

بلوچستان کے سرحدی علاقے تفتان میں گزشتہ روز کے خود کش حملوں اور فائرنگ میں ہلاک ہونے والے اکیس شيعہ زائرین کی خیبر پختونخوا کے علاقے کوہاٹ کے مضافات اور قبائلی علاقے اورکزئی ایجنسی میں آج تدفین کر دی گئی ہے۔ اس حملے میں کم سے کم چوبیس افراد ہلاک ہوئے تھے جن میں دس خواتین بھی شامل تھیں

عورتوں سمیت 25 شیعہ زائرین ہلاک



We clearly condemn target killings of Baloch and Pashtun nationalists by Deobandi and Salafi/Wahabi proxies of rogue pro-Saudi elements in Pakistan’s security establishment. It is in the interest of all Sunnis, Shias, Balochs, Pashtuns, Sindhis, Punjabis, Gilgitis etc to politically and phsyically fight and eliminate Deobandi and Salafi terrorists, particularly those belonging to Sipah-e-Sahaba, ASWJ, the one terror outfit that unites and enshrines Al-Qaeda, Taliban, JeM, LeJ and other terrorist outfits in Pakistan.
