Multan: Tehrik-e-Nifaz Fiqa Jafferia (TNFJ) leader Allama Abbas Nasir Kazmi was laid to rest here in his native town on Tuesday.

Before burial, funeral prayer of Kazmi were offered in courtyard of Shah Shamas shrine. Hundreds people participated in the prayer offered in shrine. Earlier, people staged a protest with remains of slain Shia leader at Chungi-No. 9 in Multan. Remains of slain Kazmi were shifted to Multan from Lahore last night where he was shot dead.

Nasir Abbas after addressing a Majlis on Sunday night at Shadman Town was on way to Jauhar Town and his car no sooner reached near the F.C. College here, the assailants riding motorbikes waiting for the kill opened indiscriminate firing, resulting in the death of Allama Abbas Nasir Kazmi, however Allama’s companion Ghulam Abbas and his driver Munawwar escaped unhurt.

This incident took place 9 days after a Sunni cleric Maulana Shamsur Rehman Muaiya was killed in similar way in same city of Lahore.

This was third high profile sectarian target killing in a month as Shia leader was shot dead in Karachi earlier this month.
