Is there a specific way to identify Shi’ites vs. Sunnis? Different garb? Headdress? Were they known to be traveling on this bus?

Damn those Christian white males! They have absolutely no decency whatsoever!
Pakistan needs bigger buses.

If they had any decency, there wouldn’t be any muslims.

Many Sunni Muslims do not view Shiites as true Muslims ?

Slaughtering each other is simply the national pastime in Muslim countries. It’s what they do for entertainment and exercise.

"Many Sunni Muslims do not view Shiites as true Muslims?"
Oh, they do. In a nutshell, it's an argument over succession, and who's really supposed to be in charge. Sunni ("The True Path") vs. Shiite ("Partisans of Shi'a Ali", the guy viewed by Shiites as Mohammed's true successor)

I’m guessing but seems the Shi-ites are most likely Iranian. Pakistanies are known for playing all sides against the middle. Arab against Iranian against American against Turks... etc. And they take everyone’s money to ‘be friends’... So who knows, and beyond that - who cares?

Sniff ‘em and see if they smell like shi’ite. Dead giveaway.

Re: Many Sunni Muslims do not view Shiites as true Muslims.
There is really not a dimes worth of difference between the Sunni and Shiite Muslums.
