HRCP condemns sectarian killings
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has strongly condemned the killing of about 25 innocent Pakistani citizens on the grounds of their belief and called for serious efforts to subdue the monster of sectarianism. In a statement issued here Thursday, HRCP said.
No words are strong enough to condemn Wednesday's killing spree in which around 25 innocent Pakistanis were not slaughtered while performing belief-related rituals nor are adequate for expressing the shame to which the whole nation has been put.
It seems the new breed of religious zealots wanted to tell the D-8 dignitaries all about the mess the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been turned into. Quite obviously the targeting of the Shia citizens has reached a new high this year and many quarters apprehend more bloodshed on Ashura. All kinds of eminent figures in government and political parties have issued condemnatory statements and spokespersons of federal and provincial governments are making tall claims above their plans to maintain peace.
