President Zardari, PM Gilani, Others Condemn Yousafi’s Assassination

Quetta, January 26: President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani condemned the assassination of Hazara political leader, Husain Ali Yousafi.

In their separate statements on PTV, they termed the target killing as a cowardly act of terror.

Meanwhile, Amir Jama’at -e-Islami, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, said, “It is the failure of the Government in providing security to its citizens.”

Qazi expressed his sorrows and sympathy with the bereaved family members of Hussain Ali Yousafi, and prayed for his departed soul.

Governor Balochistan Nawab Zulfiqar Magsi and Chief Minster Nawab Raisani also condemned Yousafi’s murder, directing immediate probe into the case and arrest of responsible elements.

Talking to PTV outside Parliament House, a Member of Parliament from Awami National Party strongly condemned the incident, demanding the Government to take serious action for security of the masses.

Politicians like Yousafi, who believe in non-violence and social justice, are being killed ruthlessly, he said.

  3. Hazaras need commitment. We are shaped (By our surroundings) in this way so we must come out the same way. We are very important part of this system. Without us the system is incomplete. India, Pashtuns, Balochs, Punjabis, Sindhis all were govenrned by our forefathers. They need help. They are corrupt in majority. We must help them. This is our duty. Otherwise, our forefathers will feel bad. We must choose leaders for every one thousand Hazara youths. We are the hope.

  4. by this condeming, nothing is going to happen. we all know that Pakistan is the place of TERRORISTS. And this target killing of hazaras has a mastermin behind its scene. These are all politics and only a proffessional politician will know the the rules of the play.

    I am 100% sure that behind these target killing of hazaras, is the hand of the government. Because the Governemtn knows that the hazaras are not powerfull. thats y they are killing hazaras and letting them get their goals easily. If it were Balouchs or Pashtoons, the government would have been worried. Y? coz they have the POWER!,

    Its time for hazaras to stand for their rights. By sitting quiet and strikes, nothing will happen. Get together and be only one hazara and give the government, Balouchs the answer that hazaras are not cowards. By not doing it so, they will become brave and bold. Today they are killing hazaras in their area, tomorow they will start killing hazaras in their homes. if no action is taken against them then the consequence will be worse n worse.
    AS THERE IS A GOOD SAYING THAT “JAB GHEE SEEDAY UNGLI SAY NAHI NIKLAY TU UNGLI TAYDA KARNA PADTHA HAY”.

    SO from now on if they kill one you kill two of them so that they should become aware of the power of the hazaras. By siting quiet they will think that we hazaras are cowards. we Must WAKE UP!!! and proof to them that Hazaras can kill too.

    THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS WHICH CAN EITHER BE RESOLVED BY NEGOTIATION OR BY FIGHTING. HOWEVER IN THIS CASE THE SOLUTION TO THIS ISSUE IS TO FIGHT BACK!

    FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT ! FIGHT FOR THE JUSTICE ! FIGHT FOR THE PEACE !

    WAKE UP HAZARAS WAKE UP!!!!

    MAY GOD BLESS ALL HAZARAS AROUND THE WORLD AND GIVE THEM THE COURAGE TO STAND FOR THEIR RIGHTS!!!!

  5. We the Hazaras in Southampton England strongly condemn the ongoing acts of terror against Hazaras in Quetta city. We strongly condemn today’s barbaric act of terror, in which we lost one of the brilliant minds, who had a long history of contributions in Hazaragi drama,arts, literature and politics; HUSSAIN ALI YOUSUFI.
    We the Hazaras in Southampton got together and discussed all possible means to be exploited to raise the oppressed voice of our Nation in United Kingdom and world media.
    We concluded the meeting and found no other alternatives but to pressurize the government of Pakistan to arrest and bring the culprits to justice. As our enemies are cowardly hidden. We should know the fact that without the immense government support they may not do such inhuman and brutal acts. The following measures were suggested to gain our objectives.
    1. We as the member of the nation urge the Hazaras across the world to declare a black day and a national day of mourning (day to be set by Hazaras in Quetta Pakistan).
    So that we Hazaras of the world should launch a collaborative and united protest against the ethnic cleansing of the Hazaras in Quetta on the same day.
    2. We urge the Hazaras of the United Kingdom to join the protest in London in front of the Pakistani embassy, United Nations office, emnesty international and human rights organization. (Date and time will be announced later).
    3. The Hazaras in Switzerland and Scandinavian countries should organize a protest in Geneva in front of the united nations headquarter, embassy of Pakistan and other human right organizations. At the same time we urge the Hazaras living other parts of Europe to launch protests in their respective countries keeping in view the important agenda to raise the voice of oppressed as well as suppressed Hazaras.
    4. The Hazaras in the united states and Australia should launch protests in front of the above said offices to pressurise the govt of Pakistan to capture and bring to justice so that nothing aggressive like this incident happen again to the Hazaras in Quetta city.
    5. We strongly urge the member of provincial assembly Mr.Jan Ali changazi and member of nationally assembly Mr.Syed Abbas to raise their voices in their respective assemblies and record their official protests as well as set a deadline for the arrests of the culprits and if the demands are not met, should leave govt benches and join the opposition and go for the further hunger strike till death,as per your national responsibility. (the braves die once not everyday)
    6. We strongly urge the global hazard leaders Mr.Khalili, Mr.Mohaqqiq and Dr.Sima Samer to visit Islamabad and discuss the safety and security of Hazaras with the president and prime minister of the Pakistan.
    7. As the only political voice of the Hazaras in Quetta we urge the HAZARA DEMOCRATIC PARTY to be a part of greater opposition alliance in Pakistan to launch a movement against the contemporary cruel govt of PPP who has left no stone unturned to eliminate the Hazara community in Pakistan.
    8. As the Hazaras of the Southampton and united kingdom we solemnly request the entire Hazara community to leave their personal and ideological rifts and come together to deal with the crisis all together united.
    HAZARAHA E JAHAN MOTHAHID SHAWID.

  6. Zardari and Gailani are the two pittu leaders of Pakistan who never met with our people and never talk to our leaders. we gave them votes and selected their candidates but what they did to us, nothing.

    I think Asif Ali Zardari and Gailani should be shame on their leadership, they dont know what is going on in their leadership, they dont know what is going on in Quetta.

    The corrupt leaders of Baloch and PPP see our death bodies everyday, but if any common baloch is killed then they protest everyday and block roads.

    shame on you zardari, shame on gailani, shame on or MNA who is just a pittu and benung leader like Cornal younus, who dont know what to do, we are jahil when we select these leaders and give them seats, but those who served our nation for many years, we never select them, shame on our nation, especially those who call themselves the force of Imam Hussain, but when any incident occurs all of them sit labe nali and thara, doing bandars and gimar bazi, shame on you.

    I hope that these emotional mazhabi guys who become the leaders of daste-nichari, daste-saeed abad, and others will join nationalism, because its the same as the war fought in karbala.

    If you guys understand it, then we will be proud of you for ever.

    Ba amani khuda

    Mukhtar Hussain
