Talking to Islam Times on the sideline of a senate debate in Islamabad, Senator Mir Hasel Bezenjo - leader of Pakistan’s National Party - declared, “Saudia Arabia provides funds for group promoting sectarian violence terrorist, especially members of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi who are responsible for most of the killing of Shia Muslims in Pakistan.
Several members of the Senate also recognized that groups such as the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi are to blame for the surge in sectarian violence and widespread insecurity in Pakistan, stressing propaganda was becoming fierce against the Shia community.
In regards to Hazara community, Bezenzo noted, “the Hazara people are being killed in Quetta because they are Shia Muslims.”
He further added,” there is no Shia-Sunni divide in Pakistan; the terrorists are however trying to create tension and animosity in between the two communities to forward their own evil purposes.”
Pakistan upper and lower House of Parliament held a series of debate on the matter over the past few days as to try to find ways in which to address the issue constructively.
A great number of Pakistani parliamentarians condemn all terrorist activities in Pakistan, calling on the government to take firm actions.
They argued that terrorists have really no link with Islam, only trying to use the Scriptures to find popular support, hence committing the worst possible crime.
All parliamentarians emphasized that Islam is a religion of peace and humanity which urges Men to live in respect of one another beliefs and cultures.
