March 2017 marks the 22nd anniversary of assassination of Hazara leader, Abdul Ali Mazari. Millions of Hazaras across the globe are paying tribute to Mazari—the most revered and unifying figure among Hazaras. He is affectionately referred to as “Baba Mazari” or “Father Mazari”— a title signifying him as the father of his people. No one ever among Hazaras has received that title from the people themselves.

Mazari assassination is a watershed moment in the recent Hazara history and considered one of the most painful chapters in the long, bloody history of Hazara persecution in Afghanistan that spans well over a century. The exact date and time of Mazari’s assassination remains unclear but believed to be March 13, 1995.

Our only wish for our people is that being a Hazaras should no longer be a crime – Shaheed Mazari
