It has been many years that the systematic genocide of the Hazara ethnic group has been continuing in the Quetta city of Pakistan. This month’s attack took over 100 innocent lives in a town that is the centre of the Hazara and Shia community in Quetta. The terrorist group who has been responsible for such devastating attacks are well known by the officials in Pakistan and the media – Lashkar e Jhangvi. Lashkar e Jhangvi has close links with the Al Qa’eda and the Taliban. They are known for their anti-American and anti-Shia objectives and activities.
It is with great disappointment to say that no effective action has been taken by the government of Pakistan to protect the safety and security of their Hazara citizens. There has been ongoing protests to bring the attention of the Pakistani government and the United Nations to the fact that human rights are being violated in the Quetta city of Pakistan and yet nothing is being done.
There is a website created as part of a humanitarian campaign with the hope that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights hear the voice of the Hazaras in Pakistan and urge the Pakistani government to put an end to the target killings of the Hazaras in Quetta.
