Identity, Equality, Unity

A Facebook discussion between Sunni and Shia Muslims regarding the repeating cycle of Genocidal Massacres of Shia Muslims in Pakistan.

10 days of national mourning announced by the Shia leadership following repeating episodes of pulling people out of buses and killing them based on their shia identity

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.

C8:

عن الله أمة قتلتك ، ولعن الله أمة ظلمتك ، ولعن الله أمة سمعت بذلك فرضيت به
C9: Pakistan’s ideology was based upon hatred of Hindus. So its only natural after getting rid majority of our Hindu, Sikh and Christian community we are going after the other sects of Islam. I mean this is the only country on the face of the earth i know where the Majority (bengal) wanted independence from minority (west pakistan). Usually it works the other way around.
C10: Self defense is the basic right of SHIA but one must understand that carrying a gun and retaliating with it is not a proper self defense. we need a proper self defense mechanism just like Hiazbullah in Lebanon. A mechanism which not only creates unity among masses but also present a strong political agenda and movement again just like Hizbullah .. we need proper awareness and unconditional support for each other among us .. Right not thats all what we can do … the whole SHIA nation should sit together and must start pondering over this serious issue. Consider every person whether SHIA or SUNNI your own brother or sister and react accordingly so that we can tell enemy we mean business here we are not just mare viewers of a sad on going movie …. !!! We must also realize this fact that unfortunately religious taste & cultural tendencies of people of Pakistan has ingredients of extremism, ignorance & selfishness in it … one can feel this in general public through their acts and habits … only through proper planning and proper and authentic religious and scientific education we will be able to save our future generations but right now we have to bear the burden of our past mistakes as a nation !!!
C11: 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.
C12: I fully agree with C11 : It is not “Sunni vs Shia” issue : it is a “Sunni+Shia vs Terrorist” issue. The sooner we realize it the better is will be.
