HR body seeks in-camera briefing on Shia killings

Staff Report

ISLAMABAD - Directing the Interior Ministry, Intelligence Bureau (IB) DG and ISI chief to separately brief it in-camera over the issue of Shias’ targeted killings, the National Assembly Standing Committee on Human Rights on Wednesday observed that some hidden forces were responsible for the killings in various parts of the country.

The meeting of the committee, which was held under the chairmanship of Riaz Fatyana, was of the view that recent killings of Shias in particular parts of the country were not the result of sectarian clashes, but some “third force” was targeting Shias to create law and order crisis in the country. He said clerics of both sides were in agreement to restore peace in Gilgit-Baltistan, Dera Ismail Khan and Quetta.

The main motive behind the killings was to disintegrate the country, the committee members observed. They said law enforcement agencies, police and intelligence agencies had completely failed to control such incidents and identify the culprits.
