Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP)’s recent statement on massacre of Shia Muslims in Kohistan is an example of (inadvertent) dark comedy.
HRCP’s formula to stop Shia Killing in Pakistan: “there really needs to be some regulation of the unchecked sale of military uniforms”!
Perhaps HRCP is not aware of Pakistan army’s consistent support to Jihadi-sectarian militants. Perhaps Zohra Yusuf has never heard of the Difa-e-Pakistan Council, an ISI-sponsored project to enable further genocide of Shias, Ahmadis and other oppressed communities.

HRCP demands that tragic attack on bus passengers be probed by an impartial and independent authority. LOL (tip: Saleem Shahzad Commission)
HRCP recommends that “the government must redouble effort to promote sectarian harmony and tolerance.” LOL @ sectarian harmony!
Is it really an issue of sectarian harmony? Does not Zohra Yusuf know that Sunni Muslims have disowned and rejected Sipah-e-Sahaba-ASWJ terrorists? Does not she know that ASWJ-SSP-Taliban terrorists do not represent Sunnis, they represent their financiers in Saudi Arabia and mentors in Pakistan army? Does she not know that recent surge in Shia genocide in Pakistan has been enabled by Pakistan army’s tacit support to the so called Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) comprising two vehemently ant-Shia, anti-Barelvi, anti-Ahmadi groups (SSP-ASWJ and JuD)?
We note with concern that HRCP, particularly its current leadership, has consistently remained silent or misrepresented target killing of Shia Muslims in Pakistan which forces us to have doubts about HRCP’s integrity or/and competence.
We suggest that HRCP should learn some integrity and boldness from AHRC (Asian Human Rights Commission) which honestly identified Pakistan army as the key institution responsible for Shia genocide in Pakistan. Here’s a link to the AHRC recent report: http://criticalppp.com/archives/73211
We suggest that Zohra Yusuf of HRCP be replaced by Maulana Ludhianvi of ASWJ-SSP; he can produce similar vague and obfuscating recommendations on Shia genocide in Pakistan.
Here’s a copy of the actual statement by HRCP on the Kohistan massacre in which at least 19 Shia Muslims were massacred by ISI-backed Taliban-ASWJ terrorists:
Lahore, March 1: The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has called upon the government to use the military wherever it is necessary for putting an end to sectarian violence in the country and has called for an impartial probe to apprehend those behind Tuesday’s attack on a bus in which 18 Shia men were killed.
A statement by HRCP on Thursday said: “The Commission is saddened by the grisly sectarian attack on a Gilgit-bound bus in which 18 Shia men were killed. It welcomes the army chief’s offer to help investigate the brazen killings by attackers who were reported to be in military uniforms. There are two aspects to it, the more important one being that the military has considerable presence in the area where the attack took place and the frequent occurrence of sectarian violence there demands that the civil authority and the military join hands to ensure effective protection and prevention strategies. At the same time, there really needs to be some regulation of the unchecked sale of military uniforms in markets across the country.
HRCP demands that the tragic attack on the bus passengers should be probed by an impartial and independent authority, along with the series of sectarian attacks in the last 10 years, to bring the perpetrators to justice. The government must redouble effort to promote sectarian harmony and tolerance to prevent further bloodshed. It must also find the will to decisively act against sectarian militant groups and show the commitment to effectively prosecute those apprehended for sectarian violence. But most importantly, the root causes of sectarian violence in society need to be looked at and addressed, especially the institutional soft corner for militants.”
