Britons decry Pakistan sect killings

A huge sit-in protest has been held outside the Pakistan High Commission in London with protesters demanding action to stop sectarian killings in the South Asian nation.

The sit-in protest followed a big bomb attack in the Pakistani city of Quetta, where at least 120 people, many of them oppressed Shia Muslims were killed on Thursday.

People travelled long distances to take part in the protest, and to show their support and solidarity with the innocent Shia Population of Pakistan, who are being targeted on sectarian basis.

The protestors also condemned the Pakistani and international media outlets for remaining silent over the brutalities of Wahabbi extremists, who patronize Zionism.

On Thursday night, a suicide bomber detonated the explosives inside a crowded snooker club on Alamdar Road, a Shia-dominated neighbourhood of Quetta.

Fifteen minutes later, another explosion went off outside the club as police, media persons and rescuers rushed to the site.

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the blast and said their target was the Shia Hazara community.

The bomb explosions are the latest in a wave of attacks by terror groups, which have been engaged in a violent campaign against Shia Muslims in Pakistan over the past few years.
