61 dead, more than 50 injured in Shikarpur Shia mosque blast

Pakistan: Around 61 people died and more than 50 left wounded in a bomb blast at a Shia mosque in Shikarpur Pakistan today. It  is still  not clear what caused the explosion during Friday prayers in the busy central part of the town. The authorities are trying to ascertain the nature of the blast.

A group of Pakistan’s Taliban ‘Jundullah’ has  claimed the responsibility of blast. Jundullah’ had last year pledged its support for Islamic State. The group of fanatics believes Shias as their enemies. 

Shias are the one of the main division of muslims in the world. Shias make up about a fifth of Pakistan’s population of around 180 million. Some 1000 Shias have been killed in the past two years in Pakistan.
