    i agree with u 100% and dont forget other mother fucker shoib sadel. he was involved as well.

  4. From this blog we send this strong message to the Establishment of Pakistan

    We are well aware of the aims behind this and other incidents. If you want to stop the voice of Baloch Freedom Movement chose another tactic, we are not going to be sacrificed anymore. Gone are the days when some Lashkar or Sipah used to send videos for accecptace of such incidents to make us fool. These Lashkar and Sipah are only differnt names used by the establishment and related agencies. We Strongly Demand the immediate arrest or death warrant of Hamayun Jogezai.
    This son of thousand fathers Hamayun Jogezai is sent by the establisment of Pakistan for a short while in Quetta so settle balance the environment by the massacre of HAZARAs. Everyone is aware of his History back from 6th of July 1985, when he was incharge of City Police Station and ordered to shoot on the peaceful protest. Then he was sent back by the establishment and when needed again, he was sent back to Quetta in 2003 when 3 major incidents happened. The Hazara Police Cadets on 8th of June 2003, the attack on Hazara Mosque on 4th of July 2003, the attack on Ashura Procession on 2nd of March 2004. Afther those incidents the establishment achived their target and surprizingly transfered him back after which everything came to normal. Now he is back for almost 1 year and as he entered the city the terrorists from the ATF Jail dramatically escaped and these incidents started slowly. Just as HDP and especially Shaheed Ustaad Yousufi has started dialogues with the Baloch Nationalist Parties, the establishment was shocked and an immediate action was taken against HDP. We remember what the MPA Shafiq was trying to implement on the incident of Hazara Town. When HDP came infront of him and unrevealed their aims. Shaheed Ustaad Yousufi was among the prominent ones who condemned MPA Shafiq and the Agencies who tried to create tension between Hazaras and Balochis. Be aware of this Son of thousand Fathers MPA Shafiq who lives in Tail Godam.

    We can clearly see blood stains on the hand of MPA Sahfiq and Hamayun Jogezai.

  13. Someone else will not take his place! God bless him, We all lost him not only Hazara comunity.he was great man such a great man where hazara comunity may not produce leader like him in futur.He had greate vision, i miss him too much because i met him many time he was better knowing situation of afghanistan,pakistan and was able to lead .
    now my requst to all Hazara of Quetta Hazar should not see all pashtoon being taliban,hussain ali yousafi had friends in pashtoon comunity more then others he knew pashtoon and hazara must unite.We lost him. we were hopefull that Hazara comunity under his leadership will build good relation to pashtoon in Quetta.but Abdull khalique has also quality to lead but again we will miss hussain ali yousafi.
    2.i requst Hazara of Quetta they should revise their policies living in Quetta.its fact Quetta population is majority pashtoon .and majority pashtoon and Hazara are business man, i felt for 20 years that Hazar sympathy goes to other nation of Quetta where they are always victimized.pashtoon of Quetta are not taliban so hazara must build strong relation to them because both will benifite if Hazara do not change they will be victimised by other nation .Hazar supported bugti,atahulla mangal and all other parties but only abdull khaliq,and hussain ali yousafi had the guts to underst that Hazara and pashtoon unity can protect both intrest.
    3.Pashtoon of Quetta are libral they dont like athnic or secterian devision where you and me know the other nation have all secterian parties.
    4. its long debate i thought its time to tell you hazara people we pashtoon are very sad when any hazara is killed in the city.we both belong to afghanistan and pashtoon own this city and is pashtoon capital. i dont go in history we pashtoon forget past mistakes i hope hazara will see enemy and joine hand with pashtoon for their rights in Quetta.
    I love Quetta my birth place is Quetta. i LOVE EVERY HAZARA of Quetta. God bless Hussain and ali Yousafi ameen

  14. To all me bros.
    I am very,very sad and depressed.
    I can understand the people burning cars and demolishing the shops.Certainly all of them are not to blame but some Mukhbir who did it.
    Most of the Cars and properties belong to Pushtoon brothers we are all grown up with them
    as we know that they are peace loving people.
    I have pushtoon friends for whom i die and vice versa.we need the help of pushtoons and they need ours.
    as we all know this coward assassination has fingerprints of ………….. not The beluchs and also
    not lashkar jh………..because they cannot carry out such an op
    Just wait and see

  15. Ba dorood ba rawan paake shohada

  16. In the name of Bamiyan ………
    He ,his party and every sensible hazara knows who is behind these and specially this incident … Mr khaliq has asked Govt. not to come to them …I want mullahs not to go to his house ….as once his (yousafi’s) father had asked Tausilli u have accept kufr or my son has accepted Islam …….
    We should act as he wanted us to act … he had initiated talks with other political parties of Balochistan for the mutual interests of balochistani people ……. who could have reservations on our talks with other ethnic parties of this region ….
    only khuda khuda wont solve the problam ….. Yousafi is no more with us …..but we have to narish a number of yousafis more ….. it is not the time to show our personal and family relations to him ….. He did what he wanted to …We have to go ahead with his political views and memories if we really are not doing munafiqat …… things are not as simple as they look …. after every horrific incident on hazara tribes …humayoun Jogezai is there on the front lines …..he too has to pay …his days too re counted ….. and his death too will memorize us these incidents ….. When this man was alive i had never imagined that such Qiymat will occur on his death ….. We people when he was alive never listened to him and now are mourning …… He for sure had a plan to rescue us but we want heaven with allamdar road side by side ………….
    I really m sorry to talk such issues today …but it is a fact …….
    HE WAS RAISED IN AFGHAN JIHAD (SOVIET WAR ) and is killed on WAR ON TERROR (AMERICAN WAR ) in both wars say great games ISI had its objectives and major role ……. untill Afghan Elections are not held we have to be ready every day to listen to such incidents ………..
    Ba amman e Bamiyan …….

  19. Dear Quma!
    I give my deepest condolences to all of you specially to the grief family of martyrdom Hussain ALi yousofi. He was a great politician and a great loving human, who loved to serve his nation. It is really a big loss for entire Hazaras. You have to take serious step to stop killing of Hazaras from Quetta. Otherwise, it will be daily activity of Baloch people. God gives patience to the grief family of martyrdom Hussain ALi yousofi to bear this tragedy incident. God bless him. Noor (USA)
