Why this petition matters

Started by UMAA

This recent alarming attack on Shia Muslims occurred on March 4th, 2022 in Peshawar, Pakistan which left nearly 63 dead and 200 individuals wounded.

The Universal Muslim Association of America is deeply concerned by, and strongly condemn, the repetitive violence and cowardice attacks by militant groups which continue to threaten the lives of Shia Muslims. Unfortunately, the persecution of Shia Muslims in Pakistan is not a new phenomenon. In large numbers, shias have been targeted in sectarian violence. The alleged scale and gravity of these recent attacks mark a worrying escalation of violence with no accountability from the Pakistani Government. The Pakistani judiciary has been woefully ineffective at punishing acts of terrorism, especially when the victims are of religious minority groups. Pakistan and the international community at large have a responsibility to protect populations vulnerable to genocidal acts, and the first step towards this protection is realizing the scope of the problem and then acting promptly upon it. Universal Muslim Association of America strongly demands that the Pakistani Government is held accountable and takes immediate action against those responsible in the repetitive and barbaric attacks of violence against Shia Muslims. 

"Those who are silent when others are oppressed are guilty of oppression themselves."

- Imam Hussain A.S.

We highly encourage individuals to sign this petition and also raise their voice against Shia Genocide and oppression taking place all around the world whether it be in Yemen, Palestine, India, Sudan, Afghanistan etc. 

Universal Muslim Association of America (UMAA) extends their deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones or were effected by the recent targeted bomb blast in Peshawar, Pakistan on the first of Shabaan. We pray to Allah (swt) that these families find the patience to cope with such a tragic and irreplaceable loss.
