Pakistan is on the verge of sectarian conflict. Yesterday’s blasts are heinous and certainly condemnable. This nation should beware of the fact that Pakistan is being pushed towards sectarian conflicts to create ill feelings, hatred and vengefulness toward fellow citizens. Pakistan has several enemies who will benefit most, and be satisfied to the fullest, if the country suffers sever sectarian and ethnic conflicts. There are no sectarian conflicts in Pakistan as of now, but the sentiment is being tactically triggered to add another trouble to this region. The series of blasts that occurred lately attest to this notion: the attack on the worship places of the Ahmadis, the Data Darbaar attack and now the blasts targeting the Shia community in Pakistan. Though the igniting of this sort of violence is plotted by foreign agencies, yet the heartbreaking fact is that it is the people of this very country who are used like pawns to materialize such dreadful aims. It is the responsibility of the Muslim citizens of this country to prevent the enemy from achieving their goal and causing disunity among Muslims.
