Takfiri Deobandi terrorists of the Sipah-e-Sahaba and Taliban have killed thousands of Shias and hundreds of Sunni Barelvis, Ahmadis and Christians in Pakistan
Social media has recently witnessed the emergence of term #TakfiriDeobandi. A Takfiri Deobandi is one who declares followers of all other faiths infidel or Kafir. Such stringent and dogmatic is this Takfiri ideology that it does not spare event the moderate Deobandis themselves. It is associated with the groups that the state of Pakistan has long declared terrorist organizations; i.e, Sipah-e Sahaba Pakistan (now known as Ahl-e Sunnat Wal Jamahat ASWJ, also operating as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Jundullah) and Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP). All these banned organizations are Deobandi, and practice Takfiriat (#TakfiriDeobandi), i.e., treat Shia Muslims, Sunni Barelvis and other Islamic sects as non-Muslims.
