Muzzammil Hussain embraced Shahadat when yazeedi terrorists sprayed a volley of bullets on him in the early hours of Monday, the tenth day of Ramadhan ul Mubaarak, here in the Malir 15 suburbs of Karachi. Shaheed was sitting in his tailoring shop in the area when yazidi terrorists attacked him. His namaz-e-janaza is scheduled to be held today ,(monday) after namaaz-e-zohrain on national highway near malir 15.
Ironically Malir 15 is considered to be one of the strongholds of shia community but every now and then targetted attacks on momineen result in precious loss of lives.
The violence against momineen of Karachi analysts believe has visible roots in factors other than just the extremist takfiri mindset . News stories in media in recent past linking some of the proscribed yazidi organizations with separatist ethnic mindset as indicated by the arrest of gang involved in recent case of two missiles fired from the same area that fell in malir town ,as well as those indicating the natural ethnic nexus of taliban style militants with local political party besides the fascist political tendencies prevalent in the megapolis,analysts believe are other important contributing factors of violence against momineen .
On top of it news items like the one following the last week's targetted attack on deputy director of education in quetta circulating in some section of media in which one of the attackers was reportedly chased and killed , who was later identified as an ex-police service man , is interesting . The question is far more bigger now ,than just the in-effectiveness of the security apparatus ,as it now hovers over its integrity too .
Such infiltration of yazeedis within the rank and file of the state's own apparatus and the visible complicity of its individuals in such attacks serves to malign the entire institution and alienates an entire section of society . Perhaps it will be no exaggeration ,that the biggest casualty has been this ever widening trust deficit. On the other hand , its also deplorable that this incident is not an isolated incident and many high profile attacks like the mehran base attack in the past which have been investigated by law enforcing agencies ,indicating to serving or ex-servicemen with yazeedi mindsets . It is imperative and in national interest to reign in the takfeeris and purge our prestigious institutions from their presence ,as these criminal individuals bring a bad name to the entire institution . Besides ,these takfeeris have not only proven themselves to be the greatest threat to all pakistanis as they have not spared any place virtually in Pakistan ranging from bazars to schools to masajid to majaalis , but are also the greatest threat to our binding prestigious national institutions.
