C1: If Govt is failed to give protection to shia and media is giving news in code words for such Horrible and Brutal incident then i would say Shia ppl keep Gun with them while travelling such areas !!
C2: I agree
C3: Agreeing is not enough now C2 this hatred of other sects and religions has seeped deeply amongst the Sunnis. Even those who do not kill half of them agree and the rest do nothing to stop those mad dogs amongst them.
C1: Govt has failed self defense is legitimate.
C3: That is not the question C1, we Shia Muslims are not a killer nation, we cannot behave like those Salafi mad dogs, maybe we can keep weapons for self defence but that is not the answer. In many households i have seen that the parents were tolerant Sunnis but their offsping are turning into intolerant Salafis; this is mainly because no one cares from whom their children are getting their faith. Many people agree to what is happening others don’t bother. Other than the Government i am sorry to say it is becoming a social problem now.
C1: To me it is kill or be killed.
C4: To quote someone here “it’s time to go back to the drawing board and decide upon another Two Nation Theory”.
C1: I have seen so many Shias in Muharram they take the responsibility of security and they did a great job . Peshawar and Lahore too ..
C3: Well ofcourse we will do something but meanwhile you mean the majority will keep its head in the sand and continue with its apathetic attitude while its mad dogs go about on a killing spree of Muslim Shias, Christians, Ahmadis, Hindus and all other communities.
C5: Protection of our life and property is our right. We have to take this seriously until the strategic depth policy changes.
C4: Though I don’t disagree with the suggestion of C1, I must tell you, the day shias will take up arms against these elements, the very same media, judiciary, politicians and the civil society who are sleeping over this issue will start jumping over it. I am sure the very judiciary who is absolutely oblivious to the issue will not take a minute to issue a suo moto notice against the protests of Shia Muslims.
C2: Another sickening, grisly murder – several innocent Shias hauled off a bus and shot in cold blood. The condemnation will last a couple of days and then there’ll be silence – until the next time. This massacre and horror at the hands of these godless animals HAS TO END. NOW. What is to be done? The government, authorities, agencies and CJ are less than useless. So will this genocide just continue? For how long?why should Shias not bear arms for self-defense at least?
C3: And C2 why can’t the Sunnis do something about these rabid dogs from among them?
C2: What can they do?what have they done thus far? Have seen polls indicating that many Sunnis don’t even accept Shias as Muslims!
C4: Absolutely C3 remember what Pak Army had done when people of Parachinar retaliated against these forces. The media will turn it into a Shia Sunni warfare instead of supporting Shia in self defense.
C6: Gun is NEVER the answer. It will create what our bigger enemy wants and that is a state of anarchy and unrest which will inevitably lead towards civil war. We just have to be more organized, united and vocal at all levels to express our views. Hizbullah in Lebanon gave far more martyrs but in the end became the most powerful and influential party only due to their unity, faith and discipline. Its a critical time for ulema and masses to work together for a united stance against such atrocities.
C7: Sunnis and Shia should unite and slap the extremist is their face. Shia have sacrificed for Pakistan and Islam in the past and will do again. Those that perished are truly shaheed. Sunnis should take lead in protecting Shia. Pakistanis should come together and unite.
