Europe, Dec 3: It is a shocking video shot at an unknown location in Pakistan. It is indicative of the atrocities that are being committed against the Shias in the country. In the video, four masked men brutally cut the throats of two people, after identifying them as Shias. The killers are members of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan and were freed from Pakistani jails in 2010. Shias are being targeted all across Pakistan, but the epicenter remains Shia majority Gilgit-Baltistan, where the Taliban and other militants groups have gone on a rampage. This video deals with the brutal incident of April 3, 2012, where Al Qaeda affiliated Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) militants stopped six passenger buses in Bonar Das area in Chilas and killed the Shias.
