QUETTA:
Irate leaders of the Hazara community on Tuesday threatened to call a ‘civil disobedience campaign’ if more members of their community are targeted in future – a day after the slaying of four young traders in Quetta.
Without mincing words, Hazara community leaders said that they thought “state institutions” were directly involved in their ‘massacre’.

Speaking to journalists at Quetta Press Club, Hazara Political Workers’ chief Muhammad Tahir Khan Hazara,Hazara Jirga chief Qayyum Chengaizi, demanded an immediate halt of the killing of the Hazara youngsters.

“If this [killing]doesn’t stop, we will jam the entire city together with other sympathising parties,” one of the leaders said, adding that the killers of the four Hazara traders at Masjid Road on Monday were also involved in the murder of three Hazara people at Khudadad Chowk. They called the targeted killing of their community a conspiracy aimed at “stoking sectarian violence in the city”.

The leaders said they were unsure how they could secure their constitutional and human rights. They pointed out that thousands of Hazara youngsters had been killed during the past few years.
Instead of getting protection, they said Hazaras are being pushed against the wall. Blood is spilled in Balochistan and the same treatment is meted out to the Baloch, Pushtun and Hazara communities, they said.
Meanwhile, a shutter down strike was observed in different localities of Quetta against the killing of the four Hazara traders the previous day.

The call for a strike came from Hazara Democratic Party. All major shops and the shopping malls remained closed on Toghi Road, Abdul Sattar Road, Alamdar Road, MecChongi road and surrounding areas. The government took stringent security measures to meet any untoward incident. Police, backed by Frontier Corps and the Anti Terrorist Force, kept on patrolling the provincial capital to ensure calm.

  2. Dear Hazara,
    I am ashamed as a Muslim as a Pakistani and a Punjabi to see the bloodbath of my Beloved Hazara brothers. InSallah together we will defeat these LEJ and SSP and all these terrorist organizations. Hazara people will rise again and get their rights and they deserve nothing but the best. I as a Pakistani will do my best to support you at any forum in Pakistan or outside Pakistan.
    May Allah be with you guys.

  3. @Afghan Shame on you, instead of showing sympathy with the Hazara people and the community you are spreading the hatred against Pakistan and Punjabi. This is not a forum of hatred, Hazara are a peaceful and peace loving educated people and are not retarded as most of you Afghans are. I am a Pakistani Punjabi and it hurts me and I can’t even describe my feelings in words, when I see my Hazara brother’s in pain in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The atrocities and the horrific crimes committed against my beloved Hazara community is unimaginable.

    I am ashamed as a Muslim as a Pakistani and a Punjabi to see the bloodbath of my Beloved Hazara brothers. InSallah together we will defeat these LEJ and SSP and all these terrorist organizations.

  4. Dear Hazaras
    I feel sorry for long lasting misery of Hazaras. There are few things I want to clear:
    You better act firm. If you wait you will be the next. So think a lot for a solution regarding Hazara Genocide!
    Punjab is a safe place through out Pakistan. It is also the head quarter of Secterian Terrorists the SSP, LEJ which are linked to al qaida. Army of Pakistan which is majority punjabis use then for their deadly inhuman crimes. Punjab will never want a peaceful Afghanistan. Last time in Quetta few Hazaras were killed by Lej and later the same elements the Lej killed Pashtun religious person and few more Pashtuns just to make things worst for Hazaras and Afghanistan. A peaceful Afghanistan threatens Punjab. First their fear is about Durand line! Second it is the name Punj Aab. 5 Rivers. A peaceful Afghanistan can turn Punjab in to a desert! So Punjab is playing with lives of innocent citizens of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Just to get rid of it’s meaningless Afghan_phobia! Hazaras are third largest ethnic group of Afghanistan. If Hazaras could only take a strong step out of many brain work believe me they will get rid of daily based troubles! No one cares about Hazaras peacefulness, their ability to keep their living environment clean, their ability to share with their females. Till this day no hazara has burnt a mosque or any religious place. No Hazara has thrown acid on any female face who is on the way to get education! This is what Punjab is feeding to Pashtuns by the use of their local Lej force. Hazaras had accepted Islam without any external pressure just like their kins the Turks and Mughals. In the whole world the Turks really accepted it as a religion of Peace. But the rest even the Arabs who were sent so many Messengers from Allah lack this faith! Hz. Mohammad p.b.u.h had destroyed the Arab kingdom and till this day that kingdom terrorise Muslims. Hazaras are brave enough just for being so careful about Human life!
    Read more facts:
    The Human smuggling mafia is making money out of your miseries. They kill few Hazaras and make the rest to pay the mafia and leave the country. Do you know who is sitting in Indonesia to help this mafia? He is some Chaudary of Punjab. He has links inside Jaghori, Quetta and Kabul. He makes money like hell by snatching away all from Hazaras! Their lives, birth places and love of Parents! Above all Pakistani governemt knows it very well! Otherwise how the hell Hazaras were sent to other countries like sheep!
    Just wanted to share. Before you die KNOW these please. I wish all Hazaras the best and pray for the ignorants to get some faith!
