The explosions were directed against Shiite Muslims who came early in the morning to a mosque located in the old part of the city for the Ashura mourning ceremony.

According to police chief Khussani Dalan, “unknown assailants threw several explosive devices at a crowd of thousands of believers gathered in honor of Ashura, the memorial day of Imam Hussein.”

“Victims receive medical care,” said Dalan. “None of their groups has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.”

"Vesti.ru" recalls that yesterday a similar attack aimed at Shiites was committed in Pakistan. The explosions took the lives of 16 people.

    In my opinion, there are forces who want to create problems in the Islamic world, between Islamic movements, between Shiats and Sunnis.

      And you do not know who? Wahhabis consider their teaching the only true one. For them, moderate Sunnis are apostates, and there’s nothing to say about Shiites ..

          This is the main thing, and not the separate trends of Islam.

      The Islamic world is multipolar. There are only two main trends in Islam: Sunnism and Shiism. Although both of these branches of Islam interpret the Holy Quran differently, there have been no serious conflicts between the two branches in history purely on religious grounds. There have always been reasons for conflicts for a completely secular, let’s say, character: the struggle for fertile land, water, other reasons of an economic nature, the struggle for power in the end. For centuries, the Sunnis and Shiites lived side by side, in the same Iraq, Syria, but there was no enmity between them only because of differences in religious terms. I myself am a Sunni Muslim, like the vast majority of Muslims of the former USSR. But I don’t understand who needed to escalate the situation and carry out the attack on a holy day for Shiites. Who benefits from this?
      I have the honor.

        Always from time immemorial and not only among Islamists, the above reasons were conditioned by lofty goals with an appeal to the population that God is definitely with us, and the opposite side is just sectarians, they do not believe in God, and if they believe it is not so and not that ... I just do not want to list examples, as you yourself can find an immeasurable number of wars that carried the "light of true faith" throughout the world. Perhaps the first one captured in writing is the "liberation" campaign under the command of Moses with the seizure of lands and cities and the destruction of all living things in Jerekhon, if memory serves, in accordance with the highest destiny, well, of course, from the words of Moses himself.

        I beg of you ! One of the first two is the continuation of the hysteria with the mutual massacre of Muslims caused by the struggle for regional leadership between Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, flavored with the sauce of the struggle for true faith with sectarians, as old as the World itself, and that echo of hatred has reached Bangladesh, as in Pakistan, second - see the first.

    It’s necessary to take a closer look at the press and this chat, so as not to ask children's questions.

    It seems that the Americans and those who echo them, do not even understand what kind of "genie of terrorism" has been released, it has no nationality, this is all a consuming EVIL,
    they still naively repeat the "mantra", we control them, .... complete absurdity ...

    the day will come when this damned America will be flooded by its own terrorists and then they will pray on their knees but they will be blown up in houses and in prayer houses.

    In general, in Islam, 72 directions, each conceives itself true.
