Grand Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi asks Pakistan government to protect Shia Muslims

Grand Shia cleric Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi of Iran has urged Pakistan government to take urgent steps to protect Shia citizens and to bring their killers to justice.

Ayatollah Shirazi said that misguided Khariji-Takfiri, mostly of Salafi-Wahhabi origin, are responsible for violence against Shias in Pakistan and other countries. He said Salafi-Wahhabis recognize no reason, logic or laws and they brutally murder innocent people. The government of Pakistan must identify quickly, the ones who are responsible for these grievous massacres and bring them to justice so that we will not witness such crimes anymore.

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi in his speech at Adham mosque renounced the killing of a number of Pakistani Shia’s by radical Wahhabis and Deobandis and stated: unfortunately Pakistani officials along with international community remain silent with regard to systematic massacre of Shia Muslims.

The Grand Ayatoallah Makarem Shirazi added that the Shi’a scholars do not permit violent retaliation against these acts and this very fact is a proof for truthfulness of the school of Ahlu Bayt and Shi’a.

“The government of Pakistan must identify quickly the ones who are responsible for these grievous massacres and bring them to justice so that we do not witness such crimes any more”, his eminence stated.

He called the Salafi-Wahhabi extremists criminals and regarded killing innocent people, in opposition to Islamic and Quranic teachings. He expressed hope that both Pakistani government and Iranian officials take and maintain a strong stand on this issue which hopefully will be followed by international community’s stance against anti-Shia violence.
