Sunni leader gunned down in Quetta

QUETTA: Unidentified men killed Jamaat Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaat-Noorani provincial leader Maulana Iftikhar Ahmed Habibi in Quetta on Wednesday, sparking a wave of protests. Police said Habibi, who was also a regular Islamic commentator on the Pakistan Television (PTV), was killed by unidentified men when he was on his way to work. Habibi was driving to the PTV Quetta station when the men opened fire, killing him instantly. His relatives took the body to the Governor’s House to protest. The protesters chanted slogans against the police and demanded the arrest of the culprits. The police resorted to aerial firing in order to disperse them and took around 14 protesters into custody. No group has claimed responsibility for the murder. “This is an act of sectarianism carried out by those who had previously threatened to kill Habibi,” Mir Abdul Qudoos Sasooli, the provincial president of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP), said. “The murder was carried out by the activists of banned organisations which are operating now under new names,” he said, giving the Balochistan government a 72-hour ultimatum to arrest the murderers. The JUP will observe a Balochistan-wide strike on Thursday (today) to protest against the murder. Sasooli appealed to traders and the people to observe a shutter-down strike as a protest against Habibi’s assassination and express their solidarity with the JUP in Balochistan. He said the JUP would contact the Anjuman-e-Tajiran Balochistan to ensure the strike was a success, APP reported. Habibi was a regular commentator of Balochi and Brahvi languages on PTV. His friends said the slain leader had been threatened in the past but the police had not provided him any security. malik siraj akbar (Daily Times)

کوئٹہ میں نامعلوم افراد نے فائرنگ کر کے عالم دین مولانا افتخار حبیبی کو ہلاک کر دیا جس کے بعد شہر میں توڑ پھوڑ کی گئی۔

مولانا افتخار حبیبی پاکستان ٹیلی وژن بولان میں مذہبی پراگرام کے میزبان تھے۔

ڈپٹی انسپکٹر جنرل پولیس کوئٹہ وزیر خان ناصر نے بتایا ہے کہ مولانا افتخار حبیبی اپنے مدرسے سےگھر کی طرف جا رہے تھے کہ راستے میں منو جان روڈ پر موٹر سائیکل پر سوار نامعلوم افراد نے فائرنگ کر کے ہلاک کردیا۔

مولانا افتخار حبیبی روزانہ شام کے وقت پی ٹی وی بولان پر مذہبی پروگرام کی میزبانی کرتے تھے اور ان کا تعلق اہلسنت والجماعت سے بتایا گیا ہے۔ پی ٹی وی بولان بلوچستان کا مقامی چینل ہے جس میں مقامی زبانوں میں پروگرام نشر کیے جاتے ہیں۔

اس واقعہ کے بعد بعض علاقوں میں لوگوں نے مظاہرہ کیا اور توڑ پھوڑ کی۔ مظاہرین لاش کو لے کر گورنر ہاؤس اور وزیر اعلٰی ہاؤس کے سامنے احتجاج کیا ہے اور سخت نعرے بازی کی۔

جمعیت علماء پاکستان نورانی گروپ کے صوبائی سربراہ عبدالقدوس سالولی نے ایک اخباری کانفرنس میں کہا ہے کہ ملک میں فرقہ واریت پھیلانے کے لیے پر امن لوگوں کو نشانہ بنایا جا رہا ہے جس میں بیرونی قوتیں ملوث ہیں اور پاکستان کی خفیہ ایجنسیاں اس پر قابو پانے میں ناکام ہو چکی ہیں۔ ان کا کہنا ہے کہ بڑی تعداد میں ان کے کارکنوں کو گرفتار کیا گیا ہے۔

صوبائی وزیر خان ناصر نے بتایا ہے کہ اب تک اس قتل کی وجہ معلوم نہیں ہو سکی ہے۔ انھوں نے کہا ہو سکتا ہے کہ یہ واقعہ ذاتی دشمنی کی بنیاد پر کیا گیا ہو لیکن اس بارے میں تحقیقات کی جا رہی ہیں۔
