The Wahhabi-inspired Taliban have been mass murdering Shia in Pakistan and Afghanistan for many years now. Some Pakistani Shia have blamed America for the bombings. Some rioted. One Pakistani said “This is precisely the kind of reaction that the Taliban were seeking in the first place. They want to divide Pakistan.”
"Several thousand mourners attended funerals on Tuesday for victims of a suicide bombing that killed 43 people in Pakistan's commercial capital, an emotional reminder of a raging Taliban insurgency.
Coffins were carried through the crowds after Monday's explosion in Karachi during a procession at the climax of Ashura, one of the most important events in the Shi'ite calendar.
The bombing underscored multiple security challenges facing nuclear-armed U.S. ally Pakistan at a volatile time for President Asif Ali Zardari, who could be weakened further if corruption charges against his close aides are revived.
...Although the government blamed militants for the Karachi attack -- the third in as many days -- some mourners expressed disbelief that fellow Muslims were capable of such carnage.
"I am 100 percent sure that the United States and its agents are behind this attack, and all other such attacks in the country," said Syed Kausar Hussain Zaidi, a Shi'ite lawyer.
Other mourners were furious, shouting confusing slogans.
"Down with America. Down with the Taliban. Down with Israel."
Religious scholars urged people to remain peaceful.'
