KARACHI: Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen MWM women staged a demonstration on Tuesday to protest against the terrorist attack on holy shrine of Hazrat Syeda Zainab AS, granddaughter of Hazrat Mohammad PBUH, in Damascus.

Females as well as children gathered outside Karachi Press Club under the aegis of MWM, women wing Karachi chapter. They were raising slogans against the takfiri terrorists who are massacring innocent Syrian Arab Muslims and desecrating the holy shrines of Hazrat Ibrahim PBUH and Hazrat Hujr ibn Adi. They raised the slogans of Labbaik Ya Hussain AS, Labbaik Ya Zainab AS and Labbaik Ya Mahdi AS.

“Death to Israel, Down with the US, No to terrorism, Death to takfiri terrorists,” they chanted while carrying banners and placards inscribed with the slogans such as: “Attack on the sacred shrine of Hazrat Zainab AS is tantamount to attack on the holy shrine of Hazrat Mohammad PBUH and Our lives are for sacrifice for the sake of Syeda Zainab AS”

Speaking to the protestors, Allama Aijaz Bahishti and Khanum Zahra Najafi of the MWM condemned the terrorist attack on the holy shrine of Hazrat Zainab AS in Syria.

They welcomed the condemnation from Sunni leaders and scholars of Pakistan and said that Sunni leaders’ statements against the cowardice attack proved that all Sunni and Shia Muslims are united. They said that attack on the holy shrine of Hazrat Zainab AS was an attack on the hearts of all Muslims.

They said that from Karachi to Skardu, Shia Muslims wearing black suits and armbands have come out of their houses and gathered on main roads. Their protest demonstrations are going on in all small and big cities of all the five provinces of Pakistan.

They said that the global imperialism led by the U.S. and Zionism-led by Israel have hired takfiri mercenaries to fight their proxy war against Islam and Muslims. They demanded the U.N. to stop the U.S. and its allies
from meddling into internal affairs of Syria.

They said that war on Syrians is tantamount to defend the Zionist Israeli regime and a failed attempt to deflect public attention from the heinous crimes of the Zionist Israeli regime.
