Tens Protest in Canada against Hazara Genocide in Pakistan

A protest rally was held in Toronto, Canada against the systematic genocide of Shia Muslims in Pakistan.

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - A protest rally was held in Toronto, Canada against the systematic genocide of Shia Muslims in Pakistan. Protesters marched down to Dundas Square holding banners and placards with slogans against killing of Shia Muslims by sectarian terrorists in Pakistani city of Quetta. The rally was organized by Hazara Association of Canada.

Placards read: “Stop Genocide of Hazara (Shia Sect) People in Pakistan”, “We Canadians Want Our Government to Pressurize Pakistan to Stop Killing of Hazara People”, “Stop Supporting Taliban”, etc.

Speakers urged human rights organizations, the international community and United Nations to take notice of the systematic killing of Hazara Shia minority in Pakistani city of Quetta. They said a community of 600,000 are besieged and living under constant threat and fear. People cannot travel from their homes to schools, universities, bazaar and markets due to daily killing of Shia Muslims. They strongly condemned the Government of Pakistan for its utter failure to maintain peace. Speakers further questioned the role of powerful military intelligence agencies in Pakistan, asking how could a bunch of sectarian terrorists operate with impunity, it is not complicity of elements from within the law enforcement agencies.

The protesters urged the Canadian Government to use diplomatic pressure to stop a humanitarian crisis in Pakistani city of Quetta.
