Default TTP execute 22 Shias in Pakistan bus attack - 08-16-2012, 07:36 PM

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...87F10C20120816

(Reuters) - Gunmen in north-west Pakistan ambushed three buses, forced passengers out and shot 22 of them dead in a sectarian attack at dawn on Thursday, officials said.
The officials said about 15 armed men wearing army uniforms checked the identification cards of the passengers and then opened fire after learning they were Shi'ites.
"It is confirmed at least 22 people are dead," said a senior police official.
The Darra Adam Khel faction of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the Pakistan Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack.
"We have targeted them (Shi'ites) because they are enemies of Sunnis and conspire against us. We will continue such attacks in the future," Mohammed Afridi, a spokesman for the faction, told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.
The director of police in the north-western city of Gilgit, Ali Sher, said the buses were stopped in the Lulusar area, which lies below mountains.
Pakistan is a majority Sunni Muslim country and attacks targeting Shi'ites have increased this year in the area around Gilgit. In February, gunmen killed 18 Shi'ite bus passengers in the district of Kohistan.
Eight militants and one soldier were killed on Thursday when Islamist fighters armed with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons fought their way into one of Pakistan's largest air bases, the air force said.
The attack on the Minhas air base at Kamra, central Punjab province, was repelled and only one aircraft was damaged, an air force spokesman said. The TTP claimed responsibility for the assault.

There is nothing in our book, the Qur'an, that teaches us to suffer peacefully. Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone lays a hand on you, send him to the cemetery. That's a good religion.

how are the pilgrims shias who have nothing to do with the war conspiring against them? it's so ridiculous the way sunni militants target shias, they dont even spare their young kids. where does this extreme hate come from?

It is actually the provocative speeches and literature against the shias, but at the other hand shias don't stop abusing and blaspheming sahaba kiraam R.A.
Its a complicated situation.

But being a non Muslim you don't know the sensitivity of the blasphemy issue for Muslims.

so much for modernity, that the slaughter of unarmed innocents, in cold blood, is excused because of blasphemy.

so you think these shias were singing insults on their bus and the ttp happen to of heard it and killed them all?

obviously no shia would be stupid enough to insult sunni beliefs in these areas.


There is nothing in our book, the Qur'an, that teaches us to suffer peacefully. Our religion teaches us to be intelligent. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone lays a hand on you, send him to the cemetery. That's a good religion.

this doesn't justify their random brutal killings. The people who do these acts are not humans, they are agents of satan.

What is serious to us is not serious in the eyes of you westerners and what is serious to you is not serious to us sometimes.
This is what makes people and nations different from each other. Otherwise there was no need for boundaries between the nations, and difference of opinion and thought.
