Orya Maqbool Jan as an LeJ penman

And we were hoping that Pakistan is changing. While Pakistanis are still mourning the loss of innocent lives in Peshawar School attack by Taliban, here comes one more hate writing against Hazaras. I agree with him on one point that, on long run hatred develops into madness. And he provides the evidence with writing a hateful column. After reading this column, I am wondering if Orya Maqbool Jan is working as an LeJ penman, and suggesting Taliban to turn their guns against Hazaras? He wants to counter Taliban's rationalization of Peshawar Massacre, and begins its column with blaming Hazaras. There is no connection between Hazaras and the whole argument of the column. Out of 50 to 60 thousands people killed in terrorist attacks across Pakistan, no one can name a single person that was killed by Hazaras. Instead, Hazaras have been the victim of terrorism for 15 years. What could be the reason for blaming victims other than a blind hatred?

P.S: At this critical time, when the whole nation is united and determined against terrorism, Taliban apologists are trying to change the discourse and confuse the nation.

Afghanistan's Bruce Lee 'reincarnation' becomes Web hit


KABUL Tue Dec 9, 2014

1 OF 5. Abbas Alizada, who calls himself the Afghan Bruce Lee, poses for a picture in front of Bruce Lee posters after exercising in Kabul December 9, 2014.

(Reuters) - From the ruins of a bombed-out palace above Kabul, a young Afghan man bearing a striking resemblance to kung fu legend Bruce Lee is high-kicking his way to Internet fame, aiming to show another side to his war-weary nation.

Videos and photos of Abbas Alizada, 20, posted on the Facebook page "Bruce Hazara" show him performing back flips and striking Lee's famous poses. They blazed throughAfghanistan's small Internet community this week, part of a publicity burst he hopes will catapult him to broader fame.

"I want to be a champion in my country and a Hollywood star," Alizada said at Kabul's desolate Darulaman palace, where he trains twice a week, swirling nunchakus and sporting a Lee-like bowl haircut....Continue Reading... 

افغانستان کے بروس لی نے انٹر نیٹ پر تہلکہ مچا دیا

کابل: مارشل آرٹس اور کنگ فو چیمپیئن بروس لی کے نام سے کون واقف نہیں لیکن بروس لی کے ایک ہم شکل افغان نوجوان کی تصاویر اور ویڈیو نے انٹر نیٹ پر دھوم مچا رکھی ہے۔
غیر ملکی خبر رساں ادارے کے مطابق افغانستان کے ہزارہ قبیلے سے تعلق رکھنےوالے 20 سالہ نوجوان عباس علی زادہ نے بروس لی سے مشابہت اور کنگ فو چیمپیئن جیسی تصاویر اور ویڈیوز سماجی رابطے کی ویب سائٹ پر اپ لوڈ کیں جس نے انٹر نیٹ پر تہلکہ مچا دیا۔ عباس علی زادہ کا کہنا ہے کہ اپنے ملک کا چیمپیئن اور ہالی ووڈ سپر اسٹار بننا چاہتا ہوں، افغانستان سے ہمیشہ ایک ہی خبر آتی ہے اور وہ جنگ سے متعلق ہوتی ہے لیکن مجھے خوشی ہے کہ میری وجہ سے اس ملک سے کوئی اچھی بھی سامنے آئی۔
واضح رہے کہ عباس علی زادہ کا تعلق افغانستان کے ایک غریب گھرانے سے ہے اور اس کے دوست اور قریبی رشتہ دار اسے ’ہزارہ بروس‘ کے نام سے پکارتے ہیں لیکن عباس کا کہنا ہے کہ مجھے ہزارہ بروس کہ بجائے ’افغان بروس‘ کہلوانا اچھا لگتا ہے

Situationer | Hazaras: Fault in their faces

By Mohammed Hanif

“Hazaras, you know, are our ladla babies,” said one of Quetta’s senior most police officer earlier this month. “We’ll do anything to protect them.” He was giving an off the record briefing and went into some detail about the number of security cordons he had thrown around the Hazara community in Quetta, particularly Hazara town. And what about their movement? Students, traders, office workers? Students going to the university, according to the police officer, got a police escort. The problems of food delivery were discussed. “Even the vegetable vendors get police escort,” he said triumphantly. And then like a true philosopher of law and order he went on to explain: “Do you know the basic problem with Hazaras? They look different; because of their features, they are easily identifiable.”

On Thursday, when eight of those pampered babies, with different features, were gunned down while buying fruit and vegetables, Quetta’s police was quick to absolve themselves. “We offered them escort, and they just didn’t tell us.” Blaming the victim is the oldest sport in the country but here the law-enforcers seemed to be saying that if Hazaras are so fond of becoming martyrs, who can stop them?

Haji Abdul Qayyum Changezi, the head of Hazara Qaumi Jirga and a survivor of many Hazara massacres, still thinks there is a way to stop it. Earlier this month, in his Hazara Town office, he was surrounded by fellow survivors. A man had lost his entire family. “Yes all of them,” the man shook his head and refused to say anything more. Here was a transporter who had lost all his business. An eight-year-old kid with a scar across his face who lost his mother in the Mastung bus massacre. “I was sitting in the front of the bus playing with my brother, my mother was at the back,” was all he could remember. Homes in Hazra Town were full of teenagers who couldn’t go to university and their parents who couldn’t go to their jobs while amateurish looking gunmen sat on streets corners trying to do DIY security....Continue Reading...

The Forgotten Victims of Terror

Labour MP for Southampton, Itchen

Posted: 04/09/2014 22:35 BST Updated: 04/09/2014 22:59 BST

Ethnic and religious minorities have faced appalling violence from ISIL forces in Iraq and Syria. But another community has suffered at the hands of very similar ideologues for far too long. Decisions at this weekend's Nato conference may help determine their future too.

The Hazara are an indigenous people of Afghanistan, with a small community in Quetta, Pakistan, established over 100 years ago by Hazaras fleeing religious persecution.

In both countries, the predominantly Shia Hazaras have suffered from the violence inflicted by Sunni extremists on the wider Shia community, as well as other minorities. But in part the Hazara have suffered because their distinctive ethnic identity makes them easily identifiable and targets for prejudice and discrimination.

In Afghanistan, thousands of Hazaras were massacred during the civil war and under the Taliban government. The fall of the Taliban brought representation in the political system and support for the Hazaras' long-standing commitment to education for girls and boys, though widespread discrimination persists. There have still been atrocities, notably the killing of more than 60 people, mostly Hazaras, in Ashura in December 2011.

The Nato summit occurs as fears rise about what will happen after international troops are withdrawn. Secure and stable government is by no means assured, and the current political stalemate following the elections is hardly encouraging. The security situation is becoming increasingly volatile, and Taliban forces are increasing their control of territory. There has been killing and forced displacement of Hazaras from Khas Uruzgan and killings and disappearances along the roads from Kabul to Bamiyan, Ghazni and Heart. Thirty Hazaras were killed three separate attacks on those highways in July 2014 alone...Continue Reading...

Suicide Attack On Hazara Town

کوئٹہ: ہزارہ ٹاؤن میں خودکش حملہ، پانچ افراد ہلاک

محمد کاظمبی بی سی اردو ڈاٹ کام، کوئٹہ

کوئٹہ کا شیعہ اکثریتی ہزارہ ٹاؤن کا علاقہ ماضی میں بھی دہشت گردی کا نشانہ بنتا رہا ہے

پاکستان کے صوبہ بلوچستان کے دارالحکومت کوئٹہ میں ایک خودکش حملے میں کم از کم پانچ افراد ہلاک اور متعدد زخمی ہوگئے ہیں۔

مقامی پولیس کے مطابق سنیچر کی شام ہونے والے حملے میں شیعہ اکثریتی علاقے ہزارہ ٹاؤن کو نشانہ بنایا گیا ہے۔

پولیس کا کہنا ہے کہ یہ دھماکہ علی آباد کے علاقے میں قائم ماکیٹ میں ہوا اور اس کی شدت سے قریبی عمارتوں کے شیشے بھی ٹوٹ گئے۔

بم ڈسپوزل سکواڈ کے رکن نے بی بی سی کو بتایا ہے کہ ابتدائی شواہد سے تو یہ ایک خودکش حملہ لگتا ہے اور اس بارے میں مزید تحقیقات کی جا رہی ہیں۔

جائے وقوع پر موجود پولیس اہلکار نے دھماکے میں پانچ افراد کی ہلاکت کی تصدیق کی اور بتایا کہ سات سے زیادہ افراد اس واقعے میں زخمی ہوئے ہیں۔

پولیس اہلکار نے بتایا کہ خودکش حملہ آور کا سر مل گیا ہے اور اس کی عمر 18 سے 20 برس کے درمیان معلوم ہوتی ہے۔

دھماکے کے فوری بعد قانون نافذ کرنے والے اداروں کے اہلکاروں نے علاقے کو گھیر لیا اور امدادی ٹیموں نے موقع پر پہنچ کر کارروائی شروع کر دی۔

اس واقعے کے بعد کوئٹہ کے تمام ہسپتالوں میں ہنگامی حالت کا اعلان کر دیا گیا ہے جبکہ زخمی ہونے والوں کو سی ایم ایچ کوئٹہ منتقل کیا گیا ہے۔

تاحال کسی تنظیم نے اس دھماکے کی ذمہ داری قبول نہیں کی ہے۔کوئٹہ میں شدت پسندی کے واقعات میں عام شہریوں اور سکیورٹی اہلکاروں کو متعدد بار نشانہ بنایا جا چکا ہے (فائل فوٹو)

خیال رہے کہ ہزارہ ٹاؤن کا علاقہ ماضی میں بھی دہشت گردی کا نشانہ بنتا رہا ہے اور علی آباد میں ہی جنوری سنہ 2012 میں ایک خودکش حملے میں درجنوں افراد مارے گئے تھے۔
پولیس کی گاڑی پر بم حملہ

اس سے قبل سنیچر کی صبح کوئٹہ کے مرکزی علاقے کی سپنئی روڑ پر کھڑی پھل کی ریڑھی میں دھماکہ خیز مواد نصب پھٹنے سے تین افراد زخمی ہوئے تھے۔

تھانہ پشتون آباد کے انچارج پولیس افسر نعیم اچکزئی کے مطابق بظاہر اس دھماکے میں ان کو ہدف بنانے کی کوشش کی گئی تھی۔

پولیس حکام کے مطابق یہ ایک ریموٹ کنٹرول بم حملہ تھا۔

نعیم اچکزئی کے مطابق جیسے ہی ان کی گاڑی اس جگہ سے گزری تو دھماکہ ہوا تاہم وہ اورگاڑی میں سوار دیگر اہلکار محفوظ رہے۔

دھماکے کے نتیجے میں موقع پر موجود تین راہ گیر زخمی ہوگئے جنھیں ہسپتال منتقل کر دیا گیا ہے۔

کوئٹہ کی سپنئی روڑ پر اس سے پہلے بھی شدت پسندی اور ٹارگٹ کلنگ کے واقعات پیش آ چکے ہیں۔ ان واقعات کے بعد اس سڑک پر پولیس اور ایف سی اہلکاروں کے گشت میں اضافہ کر دیا گیا ہے۔

Blast in Quetta's Hazara Town kills at least three

By Syed Ali Shah

QUETTA: At least three people were killed in a powerful explosion in Quetta's Hazara Town area on Saturday night, police said.

A security official who requested anonymity told Dawn that it was a suicide attack. He said the suicide bomber blew himself up close to the girls’ high school in Aliabad area of Hazara Town, a locality populated mainly by the ethnic Hazara Shia minority which has been targeted by extremist militant groups.
“Several people are injured as result of blast,” a police officer also requesting anonymity told Dawn via telephone.
The injured were being rushed to the Bolan Medical Complex Hospital and Combined Military Hospital (CMH) for medical treatment.
Spokesman for the Balochistan government, Jan Muhammad Buledi, told Dawn that emergency was imposed in all government-run hospitals soon after the blast.
The powerful blast was heard far and wide, causing panic among the people. Rescue workers rushed towards the spot of explosion to shift the injured to hospitals.
The blast was followed by aerial firing in the area and shopkeepers pulled down their shutters in panic.
“There was a crowd of people when the bomb went off,” said the police official.
A huge contingent of police and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel reached the spot to cordon off the area.
The explosion was the second bomb attack in the city in the past 24 hours.
Earlier in the day, seven people were injured when an IED exploded on Quetta’s Spini road area. Police said militants had intended to target the vehicle of a deputy superintendent of police in the bomb attack.
Quetta is the capital of resource-rich Balochistan province which is home to a long-running separatist conflict that was revived in 2004, with nationalists seeking to stop what they see as the exploitation of the region's natural resources and alleged rights abuses.

This is a developing story and will be updated as further reports come in.

‘Sectarian’ violence: Two Hazara men shot dead in Quetta

By Shezad Baloch

Published: August 1, 2014

QUETTA: Two young men were gunned down on Sabzal Road on the first day of Eid in an apparent sectarian targeted killing. 

According to the police, Zakir Hussain and Jawad Hussain – both in their early 20s – were on a motorcycle when armed assailants on another motorbike opened fire at them, killing them instantly. “The victims were Hazara and it is a clear sectarian targeted killing,” a senior police officer told The Express Tribune.
The attackers managed to flee from the scene. The victims were shot in the head and chest, said medics at the Bolan Medical Complex (BMC). The slain men were residents of Alamdar Road, a predominantly Hazara neighbourhood.
More than 2,000 people belonging to the Hazara community have been killed in targeted attacks in and around Quetta for the past one decade.
According to human rights organisations, more than 10,000 Hazara families have migrated from Balochistan because of the increasing sectarian violence.
Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) has earlier claimed credit for most of the deadly attacks. However, there have been no claims for the latest attack.
The police have started an investigation into the killings. “The police are too weak to arrest these criminals,” said the parents of the victims who came to receive the bodies at Bolan Medical Complex.

A survivor of an apparent Taliban massacre in which 14 civilians were executed by a roadside firing squad has spoken of how he laid still under bleeding bodies for several hours until the killers left and the police arrived the following morning.

Gul Agha was one of 18 passengers on two minibuses travelling from Ghor province in central Afghanistan to Kabul late on Thursday night when they were stopped on the road by 10 masked gunmen in military clothing. Many of them were traveling to celebrate the Eid festival which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Many of the passengers refused to leave their buses but were forced out at gunpoint, divided into two groups and robbed of their belongings before the gunmen opened fire. Eleven men and three women were killed.

The massacre is the latest in a growing number of killings which appear to have targeted civilians. Almost 5,000 non-combatants have been killed this year alone in Afghanistan.

According to Mr Agha, the gunmen had originally spared the women but then shot them to stop their screams at the killing of their friends and relatives and the carnage around them.

General Ahmad Fahim Qayem, police chief of Ghor province, said the killings were the latest in a series of Taliban killings of innocent civilians aimed at terrorising the local population.

The gunmen had stopped the two minibuses, known locally as 'flying vans’, in the Badgah area of Ghorakh city at around midnight.

“This cruel act is done by the terrorists, the Taliban, they are the enemy of Afghan people and want to terrorise people with their inhuman acts”, he said.

Gul Agha was one of four survivors - two of whom suffered bullet wounds to their chests and arms - who fell down with their fellow passengers and played dead while the killers checked the bodies for signs of life.

“When they took us out of the cars, they body checked us and took all our belongings and money. Then they divided us in two groups and and one of them shouted ’fire’”, he told the Telegraph in a telephone interview.

“I played dead, because people were standing very close to each other in the group, I fell near other people who were dead. I was laying beside the dead bodies until the light of the morning, my clothes are colored with blood of other people”, he said.

In his statement to the police, he said he had to remain still and silent for several hours because the gunmen loitered at the scene after the killings and left shortly before the police arrived.

The victims are believed to have been members of the minority Hazara Shia community which has suffered continuing sectarian violence at the hands of Taliban and other Sunni terrorist groups.

Afghan conflict: 15 killed in 'Taliban attack' on buses

Ghor province has been relatively stable and loyal to the government

Suspected Taliban gunmen have killed 15 people who were travelling by road in the central Afghan province of Ghor.

The attackers stopped two minibuses overnight, ordered the passengers out and shot them dead, according to the province's police chief.

The victims - including three women and a child - were from the minority Hazara community, which has been targeted by the Taliban in the past.

Growing numbers of civilians have been killed in Afghanistan this year.

According to the UN, nearly 5,000 civilians were killed in the first six months of 2014 - a rise of almost a quarter on the same period in 2013.

Abdul Hai Khatibi, a spokesman for the governor of Ghor province, told the AFP news agency that the attackers had "ordered all passengers to stand in one line, and then they shot them dead one by one".

The spokesman is quoted as saying that one man managed to flee the attack. A newly married couple were among the dead.

Ghor province has been relatively stable and loyal to the government, says the BBC's David Loyn in Kabul.

He says people across Afghanistan have been travelling before the festival of Eid, often choosing to move by night to avoid the heat of day.

Tense time
In a separate attack on Thursday, two foreign aid workers were shot dead in a vehicle in Herat province

On Thursday, gunmen in Afghanistan shot dead two Finnish women working for a Christian aid charity in the western city of Herat.

A local governor said the women had been travelling by taxi when gunmen on a motorcycle fired on their vehicle.

The attacks come at a tense time for Afghanistan.

The majority of foreign troops are preparing to leave by the end of the year, and votes are being rechecked in a fiercely disputed presidential election to choose a successor to Hamid Karzai.

به روز شده: 05:42 گرينويچ - جمعه 25 ژوئيه 2014 - 03 مرداد 1393

والی غور قتل این افراد را "فجیع و بی‌رحمانه" خواند

والی غور به بی‌بی‌سی گفته است که طالبان چهارده مسافر مینی بوس از جمله یک نوعروس، خواهر و مادرش و داماد را به ضرب گلوله به قتل رسانده اند.

انور رحمتی افزود که طالبان نیمه شب گذشته سه مینی‌بوس حامل مسافرانی را که از شهر چغچران، مرکز ولایت غور عازم کابل بودند در منطقه "بادگاه" در ۲۵ کیلومتری چغچران متوقف کردند.

به گفته او، طالبان مسافران را براساس اسناد هویتشان به دو گروه تقسیم و آنهایی را که منسوب به قوم "هزاره" بودند، جدا کردند، دستهایشان را بستند و گلوله باران کردند و بقیه را آزاد کردند.

والی غور که از محل تشییع جنازه مقتولان صحبت می‌کرد، گفت که قربانیان این رویداد قبل از قتل شکنجه شده‌اند و آثار شکنجه در بدن آنها دیده می‌شود.

آقای رحمتی گفت که عروس و داماد و اعضای خانواده آنها از شهر چغچران، پنج تن دیگر از منطقه دایمیرداد، یک نفر از پنجاب و یکه‌اولنگ و یک دانشجوی اکادمی نظامی از پسابند بودند که می‌خواستند در روزهای عید در شهر کابل باشند.

والی غور گفت که عاملان قتل این غیرنظامیان طالبان محلی هستند. او افزود که این گروه پیش از این به ولسوالی چارسده حمله کرده اما موفق نشده بودند که مرکز حکومتی را تصرف کنند.

به این مقام دولتی، طالبان به تلافی ناکامی در فعالیت‌های چند روز اخیر خود در ولایت غور، خواستند که حضور خود را با قتل این مسافران نشان دهند.

گروه طالبان هنوز در این مورد اظهار نظر نکرده است. این گروه معمولاً مسئولیت رویدادهایی را که منجر به قتل غیرنظامیان می‌شود، به عهده نمی‌گیرد.

Pakistan: Rampant Killings of Shia by Extremists

’لشکرِ جھنگوی کے خلاف کارروائی کے علاوہ کوئی چارہ نہیں‘

آخری وقت اشاعت: پير 30 جون 2014 ,‭ 04:14 GMT 09:14 PST

سنہ 2013 میں شیعہ ہزارہ برادری سے تعلق رکھنے والے 180 افراد کا قتل ہوا:ہیومن رائٹس واچ

بین الاقوامی انسانی حقوق کی تنظیم ہیومن رائٹس واچ نے پاکستان میں شیعہ مسلمانوں باالخصوص ہزارہ برادری کے قتل پر اپنی ایک تازہ رپورٹ میں کہا ہے کہ حکومتی افسران اور سکیورٹی فورسز کو سمجھنا چاہیے کہ لشکر جھنگوی کے مظالم کے خلاف کارروائی کرنے کے علاوہ ان کے پاس کوئی دوسرا راستہ نہیں ہے۔

ہیومن رائٹس واچ نے یہ بات 62 صفحوں پر مشتمل اپنی رپورٹ ’ہم زندہ لاشیں ہیں: پاکستان کے صوبہ بلوچستان میں شیعہ ہزارہ ہلاکتیں‘ میں کہی ہے۔

ہیومن رائٹس کے ایشیا کے ڈائریکٹر بریڈ ایڈمز کا کہنا ہے ’حکومتی افسران اور سکیورٹی فورسز کو سمجھنا چاہیے کہ لشکر جھنگوی کے مظالم کے خلاف کارروائی کرنے کے علاوہ ان کے پاس کوئی دوسرا راستہ نہیں ہے۔ ہزارہ اور دوسری شیعہ برادری کے قتلِ عام پر بے عملی نہ صرف اپنے ہی شہریوں سے بے حسی اور بے وفائی ہے بلکہ اس کا مطلب جرائم کو جاری رہنے میں حصہ دار بننا ہے۔‘

بین الاقوامی انسانی حقوق کی تنظیم ہیومن رائٹس واچ کا کہنا ہے کہ سنہ 1947 میں پاکستان کے قیام کے بعد ملک میں فرقہ وارانہ اموات کے حوالے سے سب سے زیادہ خونریزی جنوری اور فروری سنہ 2013 میں ہوئی جب شیعہ ہزارہ برادری سے تعلق رکھنے والے 180 افراد کا قتل ہوا۔

تنظیم کا کہنا ہے کہ یہ اموات محض دو حملوں میں ہوئیں۔ ایک سنوکر کلب واقعہ تھا اور دوسرا سبزی منڈی حملہ۔ ان دونوں حملوں کی ذمہ داری کالعدم تنظیم لشکرِ جھنگوی نے قبول کی۔

ہیومن رائٹس واچ نے حکومتِ پاکستان سے مطالبہ کیا ہے کہ تمام عسکری گروہ جو انسانی حقوق کی خلاف ورزیوں میں 
ملوث ہیں باالخصوص لشکر جھنگوی کا احتساب کیا جائے اور ان کو غیر مسلح اور منتشر کیا جائے۔

“Sunni extremists have targeted Hazara with guns and bombs while they participate in religious processions, pray in mosques, travel to work, or just go about daily life. There is no travel route, no shopping trip, no school run, no work commute that is safe for the Hazara. The government’s failure to put an end to these attacks is as shocking as it is unacceptable.”
Brad Adams, Asia director

(London) – Pakistan’s government should take all necessary measures to stop Sunni extremist groups in Balochistan province from committing further killings and other abuses against Hazara and other Shia Muslims, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today.

The 62-page report, “‘We are the Walking Dead’: Killings of Shia Hazaras in Balochistan, Pakistan,”documents Sunni militant group attacks on the mostly Shia Hazara community in Balochistan. Since 2008, several hundreds of Hazara have been killed in steadily worsening targeted violence, including two bombings in the provincial capital, Quetta, in January and February 2013 that killed at least 180 people.

“Sunni extremists have targeted Hazara with guns and bombs while they participate in religious processions, pray in mosques, travel to work, or just go about daily life,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. “There is no travel route, no shopping trip, no school run, no work commute that is safe for the Hazara.
