Condemnation of Parachinar and Quetta Attacks
Dated: June 23, 2017
World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League (WABIL) condemns the twin bombings today in Parachinar and Quetta, Pakistan, targeting the shia community. The attacks killed more than 20 in Parachinar and 11 in Quetta including police. These vile attacks on the last Friday of Ramadhan are nothing short of pure evil. We offer condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.
Both attacks have occurred just days after two prisoners, members of the terrorist group Lashkar e Jhangvi and responsible for the killing of 60 Shias, escaoed from prison in Karachi. The Shias of Pakistan are a vulnerable targeted group. We urge the Pakistani government to cut its affiliations with the Saudi regime which fuels sectarian violence and to afford its citizens full protection by bringing the terrorists to account. Those responsible for these attacks must face the consequences of their actions.
With prayers for peace and healing,
World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League (WABIL)
