Stop supporting Iran & KSA, both countries are destroying the strength of Islam... in Syria Sunni account for 74% of the population, while 13% are Shia (Alawite, Twelvers, and Ismailis combined), so let the majority rule the country.

Stop Killings period. Let people live no matter what they are. No one has the right to take someone else's life because they are doing or following some belief that one does not like.

have you got nothing else to do?????? have you ever condemned terrorists attacks by the muslims in other countries. let me tell you a secret, if you condemn terrorist attacks, it will earn you far more goodwill and respect in the eyes of international community and some day they may see a reason in your fight. regards

@delhiwala: You mean the fake attacks such as the Indian Parliament or Bin Ladin attack? Do you read the international media, have you watched the movie "long kiss goodnight" where 9/11 plot has been generated? Now have you ever condemned killing in Vietnam, Japan, North America, Iraq or Afghanistan? Has it ever occurred to you that who was killing those people?

are shrinees are more important than human life pakistani media is infected with the curse of emotional blackmail of people. Learn to tolerate and love there woul be no killings zainabeeya has been destroyed and rebuilt throughout history this is nothing new. but can u make the dead alive again 1 life would be worth alot to zainab bi bi she would see thye shrine destroyed a hundred times over to save one life. because she is honour.

How about protesting the killings of Shias in our country, namely Hazaras. Put out the fire in your home first.

@Jawad Hussaini: Then Bahrain should be ruled by the Shias, right! And sunni minority should leave Iraq alone and let it be ruled by majority shias. I can go on, your comments shows full hatred for shias.

It is amazing how much time people in Pakistan have to take part in these things. They can not get together when Malala was injured and almost died. They didn't have time either when so many Shia brothers and sisters were killed in karachi. They also don't have time when innocent people are killed in Pakistan every day. Who organises these demonstrations?. I am sure they are the parties that have no say in the national (or provincial) assembly. Why would anyone go to these demonstrations specially in Karachi where people are killed for no reason every day. Do these people not love their families? or their families not love them?

@Khalid: There love for the grand daughter of Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) is far greater then their own families but you are right, they should have been out then too. May be this is what woken them up and hopefully no loss of life from now and on, will go in vain.

Wa' Salaam. Sajid.

Ah Islam wher art thou peaceful nature. Lucky the yanks are not involved here. They would have been blamed. Thankfully the yanks are very carefully only giving small arms to the rebels.
