Identity, Equality, Unity
Recently on 3 January 2012, two brothers, twins, appearing for the Board exam in Karachi were attacked by the Al Qeda affiliated Deobandi militants belonging to the Sipa Sahaba Taliban (currently operating as Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat ASWJ). Their only crime? They were Shia Muslims.
These two twin brothers Hyder and Jamal were going to appear in exams while their car was stopped and shot in Karachi’s Lyari Agra Taj area on 3rd January. Jamal died and Hyder remains in critical condition.
Unfortunately, since these twin brothers did not belong to an elite, influential background, their tragedy did not merit much attention aside from one or two obscures lines in the media. Since the tragedy of their shooting did not happen in the posh areas of Defense and Clifton, civil society did not take any notice of this.
We request Pakistani civil society and the media to take up this case with the same passion with which they highlighted the pursuit of justice for Shahzeb Khan #Justice4ShahzebKhan.
Furthermore, we request civil society, media and online activists to awaken the attention of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry so that he takes suo moto action on Qadri Twins case in the same manner he has taken action on Shahzeb Khan’s murder case.
Just like Shahzeb Khan’s killers have been categorically named and are being rounded up by the Sindh police, we ask that judiciary, police and activists should clearly name and campaign for urgent arrest of Sipah Sahaba militants who attacked the Qadri Twins.
Just like activists have clearly identified names of the criminals who killed Shahzeb Khan, we too wish to give names of those Deobandi militants who have openly stated genocidal and murderous intent against Shia Muslims. They are Aurangzeb Farooqi Deobandi, Malik Ishaq Deobandi and Ahmed Ludhianvi Deobandi of Sipah Sahaba Taliban (ASWJ).
In case, Chief Justice and prosecutors are looking for evidence, we direct them to this clip: http://criticalppp.com/archives/235607
