Statement Condemning Killing of Ismailis in Karachi May 2015

Dated: May 13, 2015

World Ahlul-Bayt (as) Islamic League condemns the horrific massacre of 43 Ismaili Muslims in Safoora Chowk, Karachi, by takfiri deobandi affiliated terrorists who opened fire on the bus of Ismaili travellers. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims.
The lawlessness in Pakistan is increasing with no protection for its minorities. Our own Shia Ithna Ashari community has been suffering this violence for centuries and we are saddened that other minority communities are now  also suffering from the same agony and loss.
We urge the government of Pakistan to track down these terrorists, cut off their sources of funding and bring them to justice. We also extend an invitation to all groups suffering from the takfiri violence to join the Shias who have suffered the most, in raising a voice against hate crimes.
