Karachi, June 28 (ANI): The Jafferia Alliance of Pakistan (JAP) held protests outside different mosques against the killing of Shia Muslims in the Kurram Agency and in Parachinar.
Addressing a protest rally outside the Masjid Shah-e-Najaf, Martin Quarters, Jamshed Town, the JAP president Allama Abbas Kumeli said the government should take immediate action against the Taliban for regularly killing Shia Muslims.
Leaving more than 500,000 Shias at the mercy of the Taliban is a conspiracy against the country. We will have a worse situation than Afghanistan if the government and the Pakistan Army fail to stop the Taliban from spreading terrorism in the area, he added.
Kumeli claimed the Taliban have no concern with Islam or its preaching, but are working in the interest of America. They are creating a false image of Islam in the world, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
