He said that some state institutions patronise the terrorists who are the agents of the United States and Israel.He said that targeted murders of Shias had been increased in the wake of a peaceful protest that Shias staged outside the US Consulate against the blasphemous anti-Islam film. He said that enemies of Islam and Muslims were trying to divert public attention from worldwide Muslims’ reaction to the profane movie by targeted murders of Shias.“In a bid to defame Islam and Muslims, banned terrorist groups sabotaged Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (SAWW) by arson and attacks on public properties,” he said, adding that the US embassy and consulates were directly involved in these plots.He said that on one hand, terrorists were killing innocent Shias and on the other, police failed to arrest the culprits. Instead, police have launched a crackdown on Shia youths. In particular, SSP District Central Captain Asim Qaim Khani proved him a biased official and he has got training from the US. He said that SSP Central had given a free hand to terrorists. He said that police misbehaved with women during raids on the houses.The MWM officials demanded the government to take action against the corrupt, dishonest and biased officials of the police and punish the terrorists responsible for targeted murders. They demanded that the US Consular General Michael Dodman, IGP Sindh and DIG South should be punished for the murder of Syed Ali Raza Taqvi who was shot dead outside the US Consulate while he was registering a peaceful protest.They demanded an end to the ongoing genocide of Shias. They demanded that those terrorists of outlawed outfits involved in sabotage of Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool (SAWW) should be punished. They warned that if police and rangers do not stop crackdown on Shias, they will stage sit-ins outside the police and administration’s offices in all over Sindh. They said that protest could be continued till the US ambassador was not expelled.
