Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen Pakistan (MWM) Central Secretary General Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri on Tuesday regretted that while Prime Minister Imran Khan had plenty of time to address a public gathering at Mailsi, he did not have a few seconds to offer condolences to us over the deaths of around 60 of our brethren who lost their lives in a terrorist attack on an imambargah in Peshawar last Friday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In a message, he said it was unfortunate that the prime minister had always shown a cold response to the killings of members of the Shiite community. “Being head of state, it is his duty to visit the homes of deceased persons and condole with their family members,” he said, and added that truth of the matter was that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had let the Shiite community down badly.
MWM Secretary General said that his as well as other organisations had extended the hand of friendship towards the PTI in the hope that it would protect the rights of the community after coming to power. “But the way Imran Khan has ignored us after becoming the prime minister is extremely unfortunate,” he remarked.
Jafri, however, thanked the entire Pakistani nation for standing by the aggrieved families and protesting against the terrorist incident.
He expressed the hope that the countrywide protests by Shias would create in the people awareness about the Takfeeri terrorists. “The Shiite community will now forcefully present its opinion before the elements who are bent upon declaring it infidel. And we will continue our struggle till our last breath,” he resolved.
