یہ احتجاج گزشتہ روز پشین میں کلی کربلا کے مقام پر طالبات کے ایک مدرسے میں خود کش دھماکہ کے خلاف ہوا۔ یہ دھماکہ جمعیت علماء اسلام کے صوبائی سربراہ مولانا محمد خان شیرانی کے چند لمحے پہلے روانگی کے بعد ہوا۔

مولانا محمد خان شیرانی نے اس واقعہ کے بارے میں بتایا کہ کہ ان کے ساتھیوں کو ایک چودہ سالہ لڑکا مشکوک نظر آیا تو اس سے پوچھ گچھ کی جس پر لڑکے نے کبھی اپنا تعلق وزیرستان سے کبھی افغانستان کے صوبہ ہلمند سے بتایا۔ لیکن اس لڑکے کی زبان سے یہ ظاہر ہو رہا تھا کہ اس کی زبان مقامی نہیں تھی بلکہ وزیرستان یا کسی اور علاقے سے معلوم ہوتی تھی۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ جب لڑکے کی تلاشی لینے کی کوشش کی تو اس نے انکار کیا اور اس دوران لڑکے نے اپنے آپ کو دھماکے سے اڑا دیا جس سے اس لڑکے سمیت چھ افراد ہلاک ہو گئے ہیں۔

محمد خان شیرانی نے کہا کہ اس طرح کی کارروائیوں یا تنظیموں کے پیچھے ادارے ہوتے ہیں۔
