This is another deadly attack on the Shia Hazara community of Quetta Pakistan, if you go to my channel you can see a video of another incident that targeted the same minority group. on 10th of january 2013 evening a twin blast rocked the city of quetta, The first blast was a suicide attack inside a snooker club crowded by people for a snooker match. this resulted in 8 dead and scores injured. the second blast was detonated when rescue workers,police and other volunteers reached the scene for help. this resulted in even more loss of lives killing at least 120 people and injuring more than 150.this was yet another cowardly attack perpetrated by the same terrorist group named Lashkare Jhangvi. this is what Hazara have to face in their day to day life, our only fault is that we are Shia minority with Mongolian facial features which makes us easy target for the terrorist because they know that we hazaras are 100% shia.
The group later called a TV station claiming responsibility for the attack. The leader threatened that 2013 will be Hazara shia community's last year in quetta. The attacks started in 1999 and intensified from 2007. Just last year, the community lost more than 400 souls to the target killing. All together the community has lost more than 1000 souls just in the last 3 years.

The government is failing to provide security to the civilians. The government is speculated to be involved in these attacks. Today the protesters are peacefully holding a sit-in near the government office. The protesters brought with them the coffins of the dead and are demanding that martial law to be imposed in the city. They are not willing to bury the dead until their demands are met.
The Hazara community have been very peaceful throughout the tragedies and have never attacked or caused harm to others. One of the big losses from yesterday's blasts was a young human rights activist named Irfan Ali who also belonged to the hazara community. Irfan Ali always was a peace loving person who was silenced by the culprits yesterday.

I am also a Hazara shia living in Australia. I am trying to spread awareness of my community's massacre so that pressure can be put on the government and the Army of Pakistan by the world community.
Thanks for reading...
