In a tragic incident in the tribal area of Kurram Agency, two Shia individuals were fatally shot dead. The incident happened at Tangi in Parachinar tehsil of Khurram Agency. The attack, carried out by unknown assailants, resulted in the deaths of two individuals and left two others injured.

According to reports, the firing occurred on the late night of April 3, targeting members of the Shia community. The victims, who have not been identified yet, were part of the marginalized Shia minority in the region.

Authorities have initiated an investigation into the incident to ascertain the motives behind the attack and identify the perpetrators. However, public sentiment reflects a widespread lack of confidence in the forces and security agencies, with many expressing concerns over the persistent lack of security for Shia communities in Kurram Agency and Parachinar.

Shia residents have long endured a sense of vulnerability and insecurity due to the failure of security agencies to effectively address the ongoing threats posed by extremist elements. The recurring attacks and blasts have claimed numerous innocent lives, leading to growing frustration and disillusionment among the minority Shia population.

Critics argue that the establishment’s inability to provide adequate protection to its citizens, particularly vulnerable minorities like the Shia community, reflects a significant failure in governance and security measures. As a result, many feel that the regime has faltered in fulfilling its fundamental duty to safeguard the lives and rights of all its citizens, leaving minorities like the Shias at the mercy of ruthless terrorists.
