    It is shameful for the world powers, U N. and the custodians of humanity to keep quiet for the last few years watching silently inhumane killings of minority shia sect around the globe in general and in Pakistan in particular. The helpless race has repeatedly begged help from these civilized nations but no one has stepped up to provide any political, social or security help. It looks like, they afraid of the few oil producing nations including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who are whole heartily behind these killings just to spread their whabism. The west looks her own interest of diluting the power of Iran by keeping their eyes closed.
