  • Al-Qaida affiliated LEJ terrorists kills another Hazara in Mach city near Quetta - April 12, 2013
    Victim is reported to be a Hazara known as Khadim Ali (Tekedar) s/o Ali Jan, resident of Hazara town, Quetta.

    After the March 4 massacre, the Pakistani Government went with its usual drama of "going after the LEJ terrorists" and there was a brief lull in the Hazara killings. Despite all the drama, there is not a single credible report that any LEJ operatives were killed or captured with the intent of being punished. On the contrary, LEJ's parent organization - ASWJ - is in bed with several political parties (Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League being the main party) for the upcoming election.

    The Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police told GEO TV between 800 to 1000 Kilos of explosives were used in the blast. CNN reported explosives were hidden inside a water tanker before it was remotely detonated.

    Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group, Lashkar-e Jhangvi (LEJ), has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Human Rights Organizations accuse the Pakistani Army and Government for training and protecting the LEJ terrorists.The LEJ is financed by Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab states

  • Quetta: JUI Party's local chief, Molvi (clergy) Mohammad Khan Sherani announced start of protests against Governor Rule in Balochistan - Jan 18, 2013
    The local chief of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (JUI), who lost his office after the local parliament was dissolved due to Governor rule, has threatened the Government that he knows "many secrets" on who is behind terrorism [in Balochistan]. "If our demands were not met, we will be forced to bring the secrets out in the open."

    The admittance by Mr. Sherani of knowing the "real hands" behind the terrorists in Balochistan and choosing to remain quiet, all the while when the Genocide of Hazaras community are carried out, amounts to criminal negligence at best and collusion with the terrorists at worst. It should be kept in mind that Mr. Sherani was a member of the Balochistan parliament (until it was recently dissovled due to Governor rule) sworn to protect the lives of its citizens.

    This admittance also raises questions on who else in his party knew of these "secrets". Recall the civil society in Pakistan mostly blames the religous right for being "too close with the terrorists."

  • PAKISTAN: The AHRC condemns and protests against the calculated Shia extermination taking place in the country - Jan 13, 2013

    "
    On January 10th 2013, the New Year in Pakistan started with a gruesome bang of a continuing holocaust of sectarian cleansing in which Quetta witnessed 4 bomb blasts targeting Hazara Shias...

    The Asian Human Rights Commission condemns and protests against the calculated Shia extermination taking place in Pakistan. In this decade alone, more than 1000 members of Hazara community, have mercilessly targeted and killed. The State of Pakistan damned by its Wehrmacht and the assortment of vassal militias i.e. Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, Sunni Thehreek, Ahle Sunnat wal Jammaat, etc., all named and basing their purpose and goals of Islamic Sharia cannot escape the indictment of
    turning Pakistan into a Wahhabi state even if it means mass killings of Shias and minorities a reminder of Jew holocaust of 30s and 40s in Nazi Germany. AHRC is mindful of the fact that these organization though proponents of dissenting sects have never clashed on sectarian lines. Their targets have only been activists of Political Parties or Shias. Pakistan is today the battleground of the Saudi dynasty’s war against the Shias"

  • Army creates an organization to kill intellectuals and activists in Balochistan, in the name of peace - Jan 6, 2012

"These militant outlets are said to be financed by the ISI and trained with the collaboration of Frontier Corps and Military Intelligence in Balochistan. Their main tasks include counter-insurgency, spread of Talibanization, sectarian violence, Killings of Hazaras and Shias, attacks on NATO supply routes and targeting journalists and lawyers."

  • Terrorist's asking Quetta residents to SMS [LEJ killers] if they spot a Hazara [anywhere in Quetta city]
    "an SMS was in circulation in Quetta about sharing information in case any Hazara was spotted in the provincial capital and the result was no Hazara student was going to the Balochistan University for the last five months. “Hazara community is confined to a particular area today”

  • HRCP Pakistan - Jan 11, 2013
    ( Regarding double bomb blasts on Alamdar Road in Quetta killing 107 and injuring over 120 )

    "Lack of any apparent distress at these brutal attacks and absence of much urgency to nab the killers has understandably prompted human rights organisations in the country and abroad to accuse the state of looking the other way, if not of downright complicity, as more and more citizens of the Shia faith are mowed down in appalling attacks ... It defies belief how in a city like Quetta the attackers can manage to get through security checks and strike at will" - Zohra Yusuf, Chairperson Human Rights Commission Pakistan (HRCP)


  • Pakistan: Authorities must do more to protect Hazara community from deadly attacks - Feb 18, 2013
    Amnesty International has documented 91 separate attacks on Shi’as across Pakistan since January 2012 that have resulted in around 500 fatalities.
    Hazaras are disproportionately represented in these chilling statistics – at least half of all deaths come from this community, one of the smallest in Pakistan.

    “The last two months have been the worst on record for Quetta’s beleaguered Hazara community. In fact, the attacks in January and February constitute some of the worst killings in Pakistan’s recent history,” Arradon said.

    Amnesty International calls on the Pakistani authorities to immediately carry out an impartial and independent investigation into the persistent failure of civil and military authorities to end such attacks.

    “The Pakistani security authorities must be held accountable for their failure to protect Quetta’s Hazara community and the population at large,” Arradon said

OPINIONS

  • Bamyan and Daikundi protests of huge significane for the entire Hazara nation - The news of the protests by Hazaras in Bamyan and DaiKundi - the heart of the Hazaristan (Hazarajat) - has been hailed as one of the historic news for the entire Hazara nation. This signals the coming together of both the communities since the genocide of the Hazaras in 1890's by the Afghan ruler, Abdur Rahman Khan, in which an estimated 60% of the entire Hazara population was annihilated, thousands of Hazaras were forced into slavery, and Hazara lands were distributed to the Pushtuns (and Kuchis).
    The senseless killings of hundreds of Hazaras by the state-sponsored terrorists in Pakistan has helped the entire Hazara nation to come together everywhere in the world. This, combined with an emerging powerful Hazara Diaspora, can become a diplomatic nightmare for countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Iran - all of whom are directly involved in sponsoring terrorists that have killed thousands of Hazaras in Quetta, Mazar-e Sharif, Bamyan, and Yakawlang. Recently, the Diaspora in UK were instrumental in raising the Hazara killings in the UK parliament in which five MPs debated it for over half an hour. The Hazaras are working for an even bigger "caucus" of MPs this time to take this as an entirely separate debate. Similar efforts are underway in Australia, USA, Canada, and the entire EU region.

  • Why are the Hazaras being killed in Balochistan - Akram Gizabi / April 21, 2012
    There is a dramatic increase in the senseless and cowardly attacks on Hazara civilians in Quetta,
    Pakistan. People are being targeted for no apparent reasons. The attacks are indiscriminate and
    random and the victims are exclusively Hazaras. The latest attack took the lives of eight people who
    were gunned down in broad day light in a crowded part of the city.
    Why are these people targeted in such a brutal fashion and where is the government security
    apparatus to protect the citizens? Is it the government policy to give a green light to the terrorists to subdue certain segments of the society?

  • Who kills Hazaras in Pakistan and why? - Muhammad Younas / April 5, 2012
    Now, you might have a question, as why Hazaras are being killed in Quetta City by the extreme religious militant groups, the answer is very simple. After 9/11 when international forces attacked on Taliban in Afghanistan, Hazaras in Afghanistan along with other ethnic minorities fully supported the international community to get the Taliban out of Afghanistan.

  • Connection Between the Pakistani Military And Hazara Killings in Quetta - Amjad Hussain / April, 2012
    “I dont hold anybody responsible for the brutal murder of my sister, but the provincial government and the Pakistani military spy agency, ISI”, says Yazdan Salimi, a young Hazara man whose sibling was among the victims of March 29 terrorist attack in Quetta on a Suzuki van carrying Hazara commuters from one part of the capital city to another.

  • Rapprochement with the Taliban: is it Tenable? - Akram Gizabi / Feb 23, 2012
    Are the Taliban a terrorist group? Is the country that harbors and nurtures them on the US list of State Sponsors of Terrorism? The answers to both of these questions are obvious and need not require any elaboration. What does however necessitate scrutiny and expansion is why the Obama administration is so keen to support rapprochement with the Taliban as well as their primary sponsor and indirect supporters alike? Moreover, would it not be logical to talk to the sponsors (i.e., benefactors) rather than the sponsored?

  • A Victim of Being Hazara and Shia in Pakistan - Mohammad Younas / Oct 4, 2011
    Despite being heavy presence of the police and Frontier corps check posts in and around the Quetta city, the terrorist walk freely in the city and kill any Hazara, wherever they find in the city even in most cases just 50 meters away from the security check posts.

    Hazaras joined a protest rally in Canberra, Australia, after a 10-day sit in infront of the Pakistan Embassy. There is an indefinite protest scheduled infront of the Embassy of Pakistan to bring the Pakistani Government to shame whose security agencies are colluding with the terrorists in carrying out the genocide of Hazaras for the last one decade. US government cables on Wiki Leaks blames the Saudi and UAE governments for financing these terrorists and the Asian Human Rights blames the Pakistani government for training and protecting the terrorists. No terrorist has ever been brought to justice for the past 10 years.

    The US Govt cables on Wiki Leaks blames the Saudi Government and other wealthy Arabs as the source of financing of these terrorist organizations.

    “financial support estimated at nearly 100 million USD annually was making its way to Deobandi and Ahl-i-Hadith clerics in south Punjab from organisations in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates ostensibly with the direct support of those governments.” [ Source ]

    The Asian Human Rights blames the Pakistani intelligence and the FC force for training and protecting these terrorists. Despite two World Wide protests in over 25 coutries and several resolutions handed to UN, the UN and most of the world powers including the US (with noted exception of United Kingdom) has paid absolutely no attention to the ongoing genocide of the Hazaras in Pakistan.

    Countries that are involved in the genocide of Hazaras are: Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, and non state actors such as wealthy [Wahhabi] Arabs.
