On the evening of 26th April yazidi terrorists belonging to the banned wahhabi militant outfit SSP , attacked and torched to ashes shops and cabins belonging to momineen vendor in the Panjgullaa and Shahi Bazar neighbourhoods of shia stronghold of district Kherpur.
The following morning as the vendors turned up for their businesses only to learn that they are no more, these momineen vendors were staging protest demonstration at the place. Subsequently yazidi terrorists who were looking for an opportunity found in the protesting momineen a soft target and resorted to direct heavy firing on protesters from the adjoining Shams masjid. As a result eight momineen sustained injuries ,one of whom is stated to be critically wounded. They have been shifted for treatment .
In the backdrop of blatant violation of law at the hands of members of proscribed organization and overt administrative support and protection being offered to the yazidi terrorists by their kith and kin within the security machinery , the area remained under the grip of tension . In ensuing events 5 other momineen said to be injured .On friday afternoon complete clamp down in the form of curfew was imposed in the area ,something which could only be called an eyewash as no concrete and visible steps against the perpetrators of criminal attacks have yet been taken.
In the meantime ,security forces are also said to have rounded up more than 60 momineen on the pretext of maintenance of law and order ,some of whom were produced in local courts today.
Police had conducted raids on many houses of Shia Muslims . However, police had not informed Shia Muslims nor they showed any search warrant.
Police have produced many Shia Muslims in anti-terrorism court on Saturday. Some of them were identified as: Hyder Shah, Mehdi Shah, Shabir Zaidi, Muhammad Hassan, Shahryar, Rizwan Shah, Fazal Shah, Gulzar Shah, Madah Hussain Shah, Atta Hussain Shah, Deedar Hussain Shah, Javed Mughal.
