LONDON: President Asif Ali Zardari has been urged to investigate the alleged involvement of his government in the massacre and ethnic cleansing of Shias in Quetta, Parachinar, Hangu, and Karachi and recently in District Muzaffargarh.

This demand was made at a big demonstration arranged by Majlis Ulema-e-Shia Europe in front of Pakistan High Commission to condemn the target killings of Shia Muslims and growing Talibanisation in Pakistan. 

Hundreds of participants from London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bradford, Nottingham and other cities gathered to express their concern and anger over continued terrorist activities being carried out by al-Qaeda linked terrorists including Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi.

The speakers blamed the Chief Minister Balochistan Aslam Raisani, the federal government and elements of the establishment for allowing the Taliban terrorists to carry out the systematic killings of innocent men, women and children in markets, schools, hospitals, mosques and private properties. 

The participants displayed banners and placards and chanted slogans "Stop Hazara Killings", "Bye bye Raisani", and "Taliban are living Satans." Addressing the mob, Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi, the Central President of Majlis Ulema-e-Shia Europe said: "Balochistan has been turned into a living Qabristan (graveyard) since Aslam Raisani has become the Chief Minister of the province in April 2008. In his 3 years, hundreds of doctors, engineers, professors, government servants and business people belonging to Hazara Shia tribe have been ruthlessly massacred."

Ahsan Abbas, the spokesperson of the United Muslims Alliance (UMA) said: "We express our full support and solidarity with the Shia people in Pakistan who are undergoing a silent massacre. This ethnic cleansing has become a humanitarian problem in Quetta specially and we consider it a very serious matter for the entire world to take notice off."

Maulana Musharaf Hussaini from East London, Maulana Maroofi, Maulana Najumul Hassan, Ather Abbas Zaidi and Abrar Mir also addressed the participants.

Majlis Ulema-e-Shia Europe filed a petition at the High Commission of Pakistan Consulate demanding President Asif Ali Zardari to investigate the alleged involvement of CM Balochistan and the district administration in the massacre and ethnic cleansing of Shias in Quetta, Parachinar, Hangu, Karachi and recently in Tehsil Alipur District Muzaffargarh. 

They also demanded a compensation for the families of the deceased martyrs. They have also announced to hold more demonstrations in various European cities
