During and after Yaum-e-Ashura, when the world Muslims were mourning the martyrdom of the grandson of the Holy Prophet Hadhrat Imam Hussain Alaihissalam and other ahl-e-Bayt, some Sunni organisations and Ulema of Pakistan were taking part in processions organised by terrorist and militant organisations Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi in Karachi, Lahore and other towns of Pakistan raising slogans like "Ameer Yazid Zindabad"(Long live leader of Muslims Yazid).

Ironically, government representatives like the Chairman of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Muneebur Rahman also participated along with terrorists of Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. This hurt the religious sentiments of the Shia and Sunni Muslims worldwide. To condemn this un-Islamic and anti-Ahl-Bayt tradition started and promoted by Pakistan, the members and representatives of various organisations of Muslims of India organised a protest march on Saturday in Delhi, India. The protest was participated by eminent Supreme Court Lawyer Mahmood Pracha, Shia leader Maulana Kalb-Jawad, General Secretary of Anjuman-e-Haidary Bahadur Abbas, Sajjada Nashin of Dargah Ajmer Sharif, Naib Sajjada Nashin of Dargah Hadhrat Nizamul Auliya Syed Farid Nizami and other prominent personalities of Shia and Sunni Muslims of India.

They demanded that the Pakistan embassy in India should be closed and Pakistan should be declared a terrorist country as not only it promotes intra-Muslim hatred and violence, it has also been promoting terrorism in the world particularly in Kashmir by sending its mercenaries there. Mr Mahmood Pracha said that the very idea of Pakistan was a failed idea and that Pak embassy in India should be closed. Maulana Kalb-Jawad said that the self-proclaimed Islamic country Pakistan's support to Yazid is condemnable because Yazid martyred Imam Hussain (Alaihissalam) and the Ahl-e-Bayt. He said that the terrorist organisations of Pakistan, Sipah-e-Sahaba and Lashkar-Jhangvi brought out processions in support of Yazid and slogans like "Yazid Zindabad" were raised under Pakistan government's full protection. He demanded that eulogising Yazid should be considered blasphemy and should be banned in Muslim countries. He said that Pakistan government had been sending terrorists in different countries and promoting terrorism in the world. He further said that Pakistan was responsible for terrorism in Kashmir. Imam Juma Dargah Shah Mardan Maulana Talub Hussain wondered which deen (religion) Pakistan followed as no Muslim eulogises the killers of Ahl-e-Bayt ( the sacred family of the holy prophet PBUH).

It should be noted that currently, Pakistan is struggling to come out of the grey list of the FATF and for that it has been asked by the FATF to take 27 steps including action against terrorists and terrorist organisations in the country. But unfortunately, Pakistan is not only not taking action against the terrorist organisations it had provided them government protection while they have been indulging in militant and extremist activities in Pakistan. With this situation, it seems difficult for Pakistan to be removed from the 'Grey List'.
