ABWA Official Website – Following the terrorist attack by Takfiri groups on a high school in Parachinar, Pakistan, which led to the martyrdom of seven Shiite teachers, in a statement, while denouncing this terrorist attack, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly emphasized the fight against Takfirism and the sinister phenomenon of terrorism.
The statement is as follows:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
وَمَنْ يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِنًا مُتَعَمِّدًا فَجَزَاؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِدًا فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَابًا عَظِيمًا
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Should anyone kill a believer intentionally, his requital shall be hell, to remain in it [forever]; Allah shall be wrathful at him and curse him and He shall prepare for him a great punishment. (Holy Quran, Surah: An-Nisa, Verse: 94)
The tragic martyrdom of Shiite teachers in Parachinar, Pakistan, who were just teaching knowledge, wounded the hearts of all Shiites and Muslims of Pakistan, as well as freedom seekers of the world. This terrorist act, which was planned and carried out by Takfiri groups, once again revealed the innocence of the Shiites and the people of this region, and caused the international community to take more action in the prosecution of Takfirism and the fight against the sinister phenomenon of terrorism.
Certainly, confronting terror, striving for Islamic unity, and maintaining the security of society are issues that should be paid more attention to by the Muslims of Pakistan and the international community.
The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly strongly denounce this terrorist attack, and while expressing solidarity and sympathy with the bereaved families of the martyrs and offering condolences to the Muslims and AhlulBayt (a.s.) followers in Pakistan, asked mercy and forgiveness for the martyrs of the attack from God Almighty.
Also, while expressing gratitude for the efforts of the Pakistani government in confronting terrorism, the Assembly calls for a serious effort to confront the perpetrators of this tragic incident.
