The Deobandi-Wahhabi terrorists in Pakistan attack Federal Minister for Religious Affairs. Driver Killed.
Hamid Saeed Kazmi, an eminent Sunni (Barelvi) scholar was deeply despised by the pro-Taliban Deobandi-Wahhabi alliance in Pakistan, enshrined in orgnaizations such as Sipah-e-Sahaba, Lashkar-e-Jhangavi, Jamaat-e-Islami, rogue elements of ISI, and Imran Khan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf.
This is the third high profile targetted attack on eminent Sunni / Barelvi scholars after the Nishtar Park massacre in Karachi and the martyrdom of Maulana Naeemi in Lahore.
It is high time that all pro-Taliban leaders of the Deobandi-Wahhabi alliance, mullahs and their supports in media and politics, including but not limited to Ansar Abbasi, Dr Shahid Masood, Mullah Munawar Hassan, Hameed Gul, Aslam Beg, Irfan Siddiqi, Imran Khan etc be arrested and charged for treason against the Pakistani nation.

Pakistan’s religion minister shot

Pakistan’s Minister for Religious Affairs, Hamid Saeed Kazmi, has been injured in a gun attack on his car in the capital, Islamabad, police say.

A man believed to be Mr Kazmi’s driver was killed in the attack and another passenger injured, said police.

No one has claimed to have carried out the attack. Mr Kazmi has been an outspoken critic of the Taliban.

He was behind a conference in May which denounced the Taliban’s suicide bombing tactics as un-Islamic.

“Gunmen sprayed bullets on the minister’s car,” a police officer who identified himself as Qasim told Reuters news agency.

‘State of shock’

Television footage showed Mr Kazmi, with a wounded leg, being taken away in an ambulance. There were blood stains on the car’s seats and its windows were shattered.

Senior medical official Shaukat Hameed Kiani said Mr Kazmi’s leg had been fractured by a bullet.

“His condition is stable, but he is in a state of shock,” he said.

Shazia Nazir, a doctor at the hospital treating Mr Kazmi, told the AFP news agency that the minister’s driver had been brought in dead, with a bullet wound to the head, and that a security guard had been seriously wounded.

Health Minister Aijaz Jhakrani has denied there had been any lapses in security, saying the incident was “a targeted attack”, AFP reported.

Mr Kazmi has been a key figure in opposing the Taliban in Pakistan, continuing to carry out reforms of religious schools and working with senior clerics to denounce the militants’ tactics.
