Shias have killed seven sunnis in Rawalpindi, Pakistan for shouting abuse at their procession. A sunni mosque was burnt and students were dragged on the street before being killed by Shia mob. It seems as if this time shias have crossed a fine line in a country like Pakistan where religious tolerance is at historic ebb. Country is full of religious preachers who have livelihoods depending on spreading the message of hate.Shias are a minority in Pakistan and often on the receiving end of violence but this case will exacerbate the situation and there is a possibility that if matter is not dealt carefully by the federal government, things can get out of hand. Already there are reports of disturbances in other parts of the country.
Why kill people for just calling you names. Is human life that cheap that you can take it because your Gods are above everything else. No god is above human life and people in Pakistan must understand this fact before anything can change in this country. A person died 14 hundred years ago and you are killing now to take revenge for that killing. How retarded you have to be to do such a thing. Pakistan cannot handle this at this juncture in history with Taliban knocking the hell out of Pakistani state and time is now come to ban all hate speech in Pakistan and implement it. Anyone who kills in the name of religion must be dealt with full force of law.
