And what to do?
By Omar Khattab in Lahore
Immediately after the suicide bomber struck the Hazara Shia worshippers in the mosque in Quetta this morning, the highly partisan channels of Pakistan, especially GEO and ARY, relayed “Breaking News” by claiming that the attack took place in a market. Once again falsehood replaced facts. The suicide bombing took place in a mosque where Shias had gone pray to Allah, which the Wahabis and Deobandis also claim to pray (In a separate column I will try to prove that Wahabis and Deobandis in fact pray to Lah, the moon-god of Jahilia, so let us set it aside for a moment).
It was reported that six cars and one motor cycle were destroyed, and 5 people killed. After a couple of runnings, the suicide bombing was relegated to the last section of the news items. So much for the fairness of the media. But the media like the ISI has sold out to Saudi petrodollars. Besides, journalists in Pakistan work under the instruction of the ISI. The head of the ISI has recently claimed that 90 percent of Pakistani journalists are on ISI’s pay role, which needs no further comments. The point is: Will the Shias of Pakistan ever get respite from the nonstop Saudi-financed and ISI-sponsored genocide? Who was Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan? A Shia. So, you can rest assured that if he was alive today, the ISI would have had him killed through suicide bombing.
Pakistan’s misfortune is that the Army has never allowed political leadership to grow. Only handpicked, shameless, and corrupt politicians like Yusof Raza Gillani, Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif, and the Chaudhries are allowed to rise to power who are but puppets of the Army. From the very beginning of their careers, they are handled by the ISI, and if they try to rear their heads, they are either consigned to oblivion, or are eliminated. Nawaz Shairf is on his way to anonymity, and Taliban Khan aka Imran Khan is on his way to glory (but he will fail; he is too much of a dummy).
Thus there is no politician who can bring peace and security to Ahmedi and Shia Muslims, and non-Muslims like Christians and Hindus. Saudi Arabia wants to destroy Iran by destroying Shia Islam. The Saudi Royals and the thinkers of the world have one thing in common: All of them know that the rule of the Wahabi Royal Family of Saudi Arabia is illegal and illegitimate. The only credible threat to the Saudi-Wahabi tyranny comes from the Shias who have been reduced to subhuman conditions whether they are in majority (Bahrain and Yemen), or minority (Egypt and Jordan): No threat should come from the Shias wherever they maybe. Over 30 percent of Shias are Saudi citizens, but they have no human rights. In order to crush the perceived or real Shia threat, Saudi Arabia in the past ten year has pumped in 75 billion American dollars to spread Wahabism and crush Shia Islam all over the world. Pakistan’s corrupt Army and its intelligence wing, the ISI, have long been taking money from Saudi-Wahabi Royals and in the process have destroyed the very fabric of the country’s society. Thus, the Quetta bombing on the Eid of 2011 should be seen in this perspective. Even on the most auspicious day, there is no respite for the Shias. It appears that there is no way to help the Shias. But a way can be found. The Shias should get involved with other persecuted minorities and highlight Wahabi-ISI fitna the world over. They should create blogs, write to different national and international human rights and political organizations, and try to engage those serving and retired generals who still have some wisdom left in them. Otherwise, the Wahabi-ISI fitna will continue to celebrate a religions festival like Eid by shedding innocent Shia blood.
