US abetting Wahhabi-Zionist allies to foster Shia-Sunni strife A new wave of deadly terrorist bombings in Iraq, mainly targeting Shias, has resulted in a civilian death toll of over 700 with over 1600 injured in the month of April, 2013. This follows 229 deaths in March, 418 in February and 319 in January of 2013 for a total of over 1,600 killed in armed violence in Iraq up to May. So far in May, the death toll exceeds 250. On Monday, May 20, deadly bomb attacks in Iraq took the lives of more than 70 Shia Muslims. Serial terrorist acts were executed from Basra in the south, where 2 car bombs and a blast inside a bus terminal took the lives of 14, to Balad, some 80 km north of Baghdad, where a parked car detonated next to a bus carrying Shia pilgrims from Iran, killing 12. Other car bombings took the lives of at least 30 Iraqis in predominantly Shia districts of Baghdad. On the same day, a monster tornado struck outside Oklahoma City in the south central U.S. state of Oklahoma killing over 20. The event re ...
The division between Shia and Sunni dates back to the death of the Prophet Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of the Muslim nation. Sunni Muslims agree with the position taken by many of the Prophet's companions, that the new leader should be elected from among those capable of the job. This is what was done, and the Prophet Muhammad's close friend and advisor, Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph of the Islamic nation. The word "Sunni" in Arabic comes from a word meaning "one who follows the traditions of the Prophet." On the other hand, some Muslims share the belief that leadership should have stayed within the Prophet's own family, among those specifically appointed by him, or among Imams appointed by God Himself. The Shia Muslims believe that following the Prophet Muhammad's death, leadership should have passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law, Ali bin Abu Talib. Throughout history, Shia Muslims have not recognized the authority of elected Muslim leaders, choosing instead ...
The reality of Wahabi linked with kufar لعنت خدا بر وهابي Shia genocide: The United States’ role - Tehran Times “Whoever helps in the killing of a believer even with a part of a word, he will meet Allah on the Day of Judgment with the following words written between his eyes: ‘Doomed from the mercy of Allah’,” said the Prophet of Islam (S). On 10 January, a series of bomb blasts ripped through Quetta, Pakistan, killing more than 100 people and wounding hundreds more, most of them Shia Muslims. The Al-Qaeda-linked extremist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, whose stated goal is to transform Pakistan into a Sunni Islamic state, has claimed responsibility for the barbaric bombings. The attack has highlighted the ongoing cold-blooded campaign of Shia ethnic cleansing taking place in Pakistan, which has received sparse coverage in the Middle East and has been largely ignored by the Western media. A brief survey of recent news headlines from Pakistan emphasizes the gruesome reality of this inten ...
URGENT: In authorities have warned Shia Muslims to convert to Sunni Islam by March 2013, if you want life.
In 1948 and beyond we saw a repeat of similar events, e.g., when Jinnah’s funeral was refused to be led by a Shia cleric, when Objectives Resolution was passed by Pakistan’s first Legislative Assembly thus formalizing the ascendancy of Sunni Islam, when anti-Ahmadiyya riots took place in streets of Lahore and other cities of Pakistan. NFP also did not mention the fact that long before General Zia’s Islamization, one of the bloodiest massacres of Shias took place in Terhi Sindh in 1963. The seeds of extremism in Pakistan were not planted by Zia or Bhutto but were there much earlier and should be highlighted. Today, Pakistan’s Shia Muslims are undergoing a slow-motion genocide which is deliberately being misrepresented or ignored by the urban elites who have positioned themselves as the “Endangered Liberal Species”. Such elites have largely participated in inexplicable silence on the massacre of at least 19000 Shia Muslims in Pakistan in the last few decades. We cannot move forward until we reco ...
