Highlights of kuchi Attack - May 28, 2010
  • Taliban in the guise of kuchis (nomads) attacked Hazara area in Behsud and Daimirdad in Wardak [province] on Sunday, May 16, 2010

  • Five innocent Hazaras have been killed by Taliban: 3 in Behsud, 2 in Tezak (unconfirmed if this happened in Tizak) including children, 70 villages destroyed or burned (in Daimirdad district in Wardak province) and about four thousand people are left homeless. Many families are missing their loved ones. Taliban are still in control of the occupied areas.

  • Confrontation ongoing in Nawur in Ghazni province.

  • The parliament sit-in continues by the Hazara MPs (Members of Afghan Assembly)

  • The police, soldiers, ISAF and NATO have not stopped the killing of innocent Hazaras, and burning of Hazara villages. If anything the police have stood idly by while the Taliban were on their onslaught.

  • Hazaras plan to boycott the Peace Jirga that is to be held in Kabul in a few days. We have received news that the opposition figures such as Dr. Abdullah is also boycotting the Jirga

  • The Kuchis claim that they have Nama (letter) from previous kings from the past 32 years giving them rights to lands all over Afghanistan.
    Note: Pushtuns have ruled Afghanistan for hundreds of years favoring their own ethnicity at the expense of others in Afghanistan. For the past 100 years, Hazaras have been the most persecuted minority in Afghanistan [ See 1890 genocide of Hazaras in Afghanistan, and ethnic cleansing of Hazaras by Taliban ]

  • Last year when Karzai needed the Hazara votes, the Kuchis did not come to Hazarajat. This means that he and the Pashtun leadership have the power to keep them away.

  • The Kuchis and the Taliban are one and the same. In fact the Taliban come to Hazarajat under the guise of Kuchis. See above video that shows Taliban flag on the pickup truk with looted belongings of Hazara families.

  • The Hazara leadership is not totally unified on the position that should be taken vis-a-vis the Kuchis. There is some possibility of a general strike in Kabul. [Recall Hazaras make approximately 40% of population in Kabul]

  • Sources say, in the past, Afghan Government has paid 100Million Afghanis to kuchis as compensation for loss of their grazing rights
