Recently, there has been a massive anti-Shia rally in Karachi, where chants calling the Shia community ‘kaafir ‘ were sounded stones were pelted at an Imam Bargah. Sadly, the government has taken no actions yet to prevent this religious extremism.
Asim Azhar, among many others, took to Twitter to highlight this movement against the Shia community, in the wake of the recent events
He was disappointed at the fact that our country has come to the point of massive intolerance of any faith or sect. Asim Azhar asked PM Imran Khan to take notice of the issue.
Asim was afraid of becoming a possible target at this tweet, but he was more afraid of the people whose lives are at risk
People are appreciating Asim Azhar for speaking up on an issue that Pakistani celebrities usually don’t talk about
They are also demanding for proper measures to be taken before it is too late
Major respect for Asim Azhar for becoming the voice of so many oppressed Shias out there. Whatever the differences are, it’s saddening to see our country becoming a place where religious sects and minorities feel unsafe. It’s high time the government takes action against these hate crimes before it is too late.
