Shia Genocide in Dera Ismail Khan: Pakistani State and Civil Society Typically Apathetic | Riaz Malik

The target killing of Shia professionals, poets and civilians has gone on for decades in Pakistan. Several doctors, lawyers, poets, elegy writers and reciters, professors, laborers and business owners have been callously murdered in DI Khan, just as they have faced a similar situation all over Pakistan. Their only fault is that they belong to the Shia Muslim school of thought.
