ISLAMABAD (IQNA) – A conference on protection of holy sites in Pakistan will be held in the city of Sehwan Sharif, Sindh province, on Thursday.
It will be organized by the Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen movement
with the participation of Shia and Sunni scholars and political activists.
The conference will come following a terrorist attack that killed
more than 80 worshippers in a shrine in the province on Thursday, February 16.
The bombing at the famed Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine in
southern Sindh province was Pakistan’s deadliest attack for two years, killing
at least 83 people and highlighting the threat of militant groups such as the
Pakistani Taliban and Daesh.
The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
Maqsood Ali Domaki, the secrtary general of the Majlis
Wahdat-e-Muslimeen movement in Sindh criticized the Pakistani government for
its failure to counter Takfiri terrorism, accusing some elements within the government
of colliding with the terrorist.
He regretted that the government is aware of the schools and
centers that propagate Takfiri ideology but does nothing to curb them.
