Is the current situation an orchestrated sectarian debate that started from ‘outside’ Pakistan?

Last week, thousands of people flooded Karachi’s streets in a massive anti-Shia protest, which has sparked concerns about sectarian violence in the country. After the massive demonstrations, the hashtag #ShiaGenocide began trending on social media.

Protestors were seen chanting Shias are Kaffir” (disbelievers) and were holding posters of Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan, a terrorist organization, associated with Shias’s massacre over the years.

The rise of sectarian violence has raised concerns about a possible violent confrontation between Shias and Sunnis.

Speaking to a source, the Chairman of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), Mehdi Hassan, said, “It is an unprecedented rise, and we are worried it can flare up into sectarian violence.”

A senior official of the HRCP, Asad Iqbal Butt, said, “The authorities are not doing anything to restrain extremist groups.

Butt added, “The situation is alarming not only for Shias but also for other minority groups.”

After #ShiiteAttackOnSahabaMarchISB became the top trend on twitter, the Focal Person to The Prime Minister on Digital Media, Dr. Arsalan Khalid, tweeted, “It is my humble request to all social media commentators to be careful and refrain from passing remarks on serious sectarian issues. They don’t have firsthand knowledge and, in their innocence, are contributing to an orchestrated sectarian debate started from outside Pakistan.”

  • Kindly don’t call it anti shia pr0test..it was عظمت صحابہ c0nference but some culprits made it anti shia rally like sipah sahaba (a terr0rist gr0up)

  • One can easily smell Sectarianism in this thread. Wrong reporting, claiming of “Shia KaFir” slogans enchanted in rallies but no proof shown also an Indian media’s report publish in favour of own claim.

    Above all…. No condemnation of shia’s swearing sahaba openly on live tv channels, AS WRITER IS ALSO SEEMS TO BE a SHIA.
