As a Hazara parliamentary candidate Najibullah Golistani was killed while in the same province, Pashtu parliamentary candidates don’t face any problem of Taliban side. Hazara People are always targeted by Taliban and other Pashtu fundamentalists. On June 2010 at least nine Hazara men have been killed in an ambush in Uruzgan province that is largely controlled by the Taliban.
