Norway Hazaras Protest Against Violence in Quetta

Oslo, Feb. 28 — The Hazara community of Norway demonstrated against the violence toward Pakistani Hazaras in front of the Pakistan Embassy in Oslo.

Protesters from Bergen, Tonsberg, Hamar, Drammen and Trondheim cities had converged in the Norwegian capital to make their voices heard.

The protest was organzed by a newly formed Hazara organization (کميته دفا ع از امنيت آزا ديخوا ها ن و اقليتها ی مردمی در افغا نستا ن ). Mash’al Joyan, one of the organizers of the protest, made its aims clear, “Cognizant souls have gathered here today to protest the assassination of Mr. Yusufi and the killing of many Hazaras due to terrorism in Pakistan.”

In a statement released today, the Committee condemned the killing of Hussain Ali Yusufi, saying his death is an “irreplaceable loss for the political circles in Quetta, and especially for Hazaras in Pakistan.”

Arif Joyan, a political activist, termed Yusufi’s assassination as an attempt to abolish freedom in the region. He urged the participants to stand up to these circumstances.

Hamza Wa’ezi, writer and researcher, highlighted the constructive role of Hazaras in Pakistan’s political scene. But, he said, Hazaras have always been dealt a “cold shoulder.”

Mash’al Joyan then read out loud the charter of the Committee.

Zaher Athari, member of the organization, said it aims to coordinate the recent wave of international protest by the Hazaras in order to raise awareness among human rights groups and the international community about the plight of the Hazaras. He also explained that the organization aimed to pressure Pakistan to protect its Hazara citizens.

The protest in Oslo follows a series of international demonstrations by Hazaras in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, marking an unprecedented display of global unity.
