The main aim is to promote understanding and respect for cultural identities by highlighting the realities they face on daily basis...Hazaras have been the victim of active persecution and discrimination and one of the reasons among many has been the lack of information, awareness, and disinformation.

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
