Hazaras observe 1st October as Hazara Solidarity Day

Oct 1, 2013 – Hazaras across the globe commemorate October 1st, 2013, as their first ‘Hazara Solidarity Day’ – a day in which Hazara communities honor the memories of their fallen heroes and express their solidarity with the Hazaras undergoing persecution, genocide, and systemic discrimination in various countries across the globe.

The day marks an important milestone for the Hazaras coming together as a nation in their struggle against a violent network of Salafi/Deobandi Islamic extremists funded by powerful countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates , and Qatar [ Source: One | Two ].

The call for Hazara Solidarity Day came from Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) in observance of Oct 1, 2011, which saw the largest grass roots movement by Hazaras across the world (29 cities in 17 countries) to condemn the ongoing genocide of Hazaras in Pakistan.

According to Hazara Organization for Peace and Equality (HOPE), Al-Qaeda affiliated networks in Pakistan are responsible for the ongoing genocide of Hazaras in which over 1300 Hazaras have been murdered and over 3500 Hazaras are wounded  (majority with permanent disabilities)  [ See Google Map of all attack locations ].


The Al-Qaeda affiliated networks in Afghanistan, as well as other Deobandi/Salafi Jihadi networks, are responsible for carrying several genocide of Hazaras in Afghanistan murdering between 10,000 and 20,000 Hazaras, as well as the rape and abductions of Hazara mothers and daughers, destruction of the cultural heritage such as the 2000-year old Buddha statues carved into the mountains of Bamyan, and “scorched earth” policy of burning down Hazara villages and farmlands across Hazarajat (or Hazaristan; the historic homeland of Hazaras) in Afghanistan.
