“Extremists are enemies of both humanity and education”, says Shia leaders
Shia religious leaders and intellectuals from different parts of the country, who had gathered at the Ahl-e-Bait conference have unanimously condemned terrorism, saying that the terrorist organizations in Pakistan are enemies of both India and the Shia community.
The All India Shia Hussaini Fund members have demanded justice for the 26/11 Mumbai attack victims by hanging its mastermind, Hafiz Saeed.
The Shia leaders demanded that UNO should pass a resolution against the Shia genocide in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Iran, and ensure the protection of Shia lives, places of worship, and shrines in these countries.
Maulana Zaheer Abbas, who came from Mumbai to attend the conference, said, “I am a witness to the 26/11 Mumbai attack. My own son was trapped inside the Taj Hotel along with other guests. In fact, a bullet whizzed past me during the attack. Justice to the 26/11 Mumbai attack victims will be meted out, until Hafiz Saeed, its mastermind, is hanged. In April 2012, the US had placed a bounty of US$10 million on Saeed for his role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 civilians.”
Saeed co-founded Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a Pakistan-based Islamist militant organization that is designated as a terrorist group by the United Nations Security Council. He is listed on India’s NIA Most Wanted.
Abbas further said, “Lectures of extremists like Zakir Naik, which encourage terrorism, are anti-Islamic and anti-Quran. People like him should be banned all over the world.”
Meanwhile, Shia cleric Maulana Yasoob Abbas said, “Extremists are enemies of both humanity and education. This is why the terrorist organization Al Qaeda targeted educational institutions and school-going children in Afghanistan. ”
