  • Information is updated frequently.
  • Statistical information in this page is based on Google Map maintained by HOPE that pinpoints the attack locations. In short, if data is not on the map, it is not added here yet.
  • Due to an increasing frequency of attacks on Hazaras across Pakistan, as well as enormity of attacks (that includes bombs and suicide bombings) in which large number of innocent civilians are left injured and critically wounded, and deaths after prolonged injuries (which normally goes unreported), the information collected should be considered “partial” and “minimum” at best.
  • Deaths = Includes confirmed deaths based on figures maintained by HOPE.
  • Injuries = Based on figures by Hazara sources + figures reported in various reputed news sources.


  • “Approx 1400 total deaths” figure as of Jan-22-2014 (includes count of 28 deaths during Jan-22-2014 attack). The figure was revised from “Approx. 1300” to “Approx. 1400”  (to include Hazaras killed since mid-2013).
