ISLAMABAD, Pakistan Shiite Muslims staging a religious procession near Pakistans capital Friday killed seven Sunnis from an Islamic seminary for insulting them as they passed, officials said.
The Shiites were observing Ashoura, which commemorates the 7th century death of the Prophet Muhammads grandson. The schism between Sunnis and Shiites dates back to that time.

The left likes to make fun of fundamentalist Christians. They even like to call Christians and Tea Party Folk the American “Taliban”. However, they never actually say anything bad about Muslims They consider this intolerant.
When was the last time you heard of Protestants beating 7 Catholics to death while on their way to mass?
Never, that’s when.
And the Shiites are the “rational” ones.
As long as they are beating the crap out of each other who cares?
Ho-hum. The religion of peace in action once again.
When your enemies are killing each other, get out of the way.
Those are some bold Shia.
Pakistan is ~87% Sunni and ~12% Shia.
And the majority are not squeamish about violence.
It's a win-win for us.
Ah yes, it will be so peaceful when the whole world is Muslim........NOT!!
Why just last Sunday while driving to the Baptist Church, we dragged some Nuns behind our pickups...
And the Sunni vs. Shi’ite war that started over 1,400+ years ago continues. It’s the Religion of Peace, folks. Nothing to see here, move on.
I would not mess with those nuns. They can be very mean. I know. LOL.
Mohammedans killing mohammedans, for a change. Trying really had to give a rip. Managed a squeaky fart...that’s it.
Umm ...Northern Ireland?
Ok, you got me there.
When was the last time, that has happened here?
Yeah, I used to hate serving a mass on First Friday when the priest would do the same thing to a group of Lutherans we might happen upon.
If they aren’t killing each other over whether they are following the correct offspring of muhammed, they are killing each other over which way to properly wrap the towels around their heads.
You can’t get them to the 7th century until you get them out of the 6th century.
The procession was a success!!!
Typical Friday after prayers.
I don’t know about down your way, but it was well over a hundred years ago up here in Ontario. In the area I live in now, there were people known as the “Cavan Blazers”. Protestants trying to run the Catholics out. You can imagine how they got their name.
Now that's funny !!!
Yeah, I am sure we too can go back in history and find some people like that. But, the point is that we have to go back in history to find it. In the Islamic world, religious-inspired violence is as normal as breathing.
“The religion of peace on parade”
True. Also true is the potential for this to expand here to our hometowns as unchecked immigration and multi-mega-mosque projects pop up across the nation.
Note this years “At A Glance” desk calendar purchased at Office Depot features Ashura on the 13th of November. This is the first time I’ve noticed this showing up on these calendars.
Also note the absence of Sunni outrage of such a notation. It’s all good between Sunni and Shia while expanding dawa.
Office Depot . . .to your utter shame.

You know, I am starting to think that a condition of society is a primary problem and religion is an implementation.
True, Inquisition was long time ago but Protestants and Catholics were hacking each other to death in Ireland as far as late 1980s.
Up to this moment Russians are beheading Muslims, ripping them apart between armored vehicles, often with priest’s presence encouraging people to behave this way - all in a name of Christ.
I am talking about the US here. I guess you could also include Canada with that. Both countries have a long history religious toleration. Most of Western Europe following WWII could also be included.
I know someone else is going to find an exception. Really, this is not a common thing here. There, the Muslim world, it is very common. That is all I am saying.
Beating is so crude and slow. Send these folks some 47s with bacon grease ammo lube.
ASHURA! That joyous time of year again when Shia Muslims beat themselves bloody.
Muslims killing muslims - it doesn’t get better than that.
Hey in Belfast this does happen, one way or the other, as I recall. Some yearly parade.
Northern Ireland is a conflict more about nationalism and territory than religion. The protestant invaders from Britain forcefully took over Catholic Ireland. Northern Ireland just didn't rid itself of the invaders as did the bulk of the Island in creation of the Republic of Ireland. So the war wears on, suppressed Catholics against the protestant occupiers. This is not comparable to Shia against Sunni conflicts, which is over religious dogma.
I never said it was. He just asked when was the last time we heard of Protestants beating Catholics to death.
