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.

  2. Dear Hazara bros

    It is very importent to us to know about Islam and our fourfathers religion who came by force and changed believed. Islam is one of the worst religion in the world who believes in killing and distroying and this is the only religion that never believe in scince and technology. For more information please read the Famita surkhabi’s weblogs by the name of Isalam ya Khirad garaee on She is one of the openminded Jaghori girl.

  3. i writ the comment som of hazara friends syaing stoped thinks,PLZ
    just dont thinks shia ya sunni,we must toghter,we fight agians of baloch and pashton,

  4. Mr. raesani Mother fucker (chief minister of baluchistan)are responsible of all these terrorisime.

    marg bar raesani
    marg bar taliban
    marg bar baluch terrorist
    marg bar isi

    marg bar ssp,
    marg bar Raesaniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii mother fuckerraesani mordabd

  5. i think the Hazaras overseas should unite and raise voice against the target killings of Hazaras in Quetta Pak. We must strongly condemn the brutal activities terrorising Hazaras. Hazaras around the world can play a vital role in defending the Hazaras that are continually oppressed. These activities are held on purpose and those who undertake these activities are morally not in the position to compete with what the Hazaras have achieved in that small city in Quetta. They want to win over the Hazaras by showing them how helpless they are. I think they are not in the position to face us on the social arena. They can’t win over us in any otehr ways so they, the puppet in the hands of their leaders, can only do what they are told to do. Cowards. this is a message to everyone in the world by a Hazara. WANT TO WIN OVER US SO COME AND COMPETE WITH US, FACE TO FACE. IN EVERY FIELD OF LIFE THAT IS ACCEPTABLE IN A SOCIETY BY A COMMON MAN. u wouldn’t dare do it because its not in your nature, ‘a coward born is a coward dead’.

  6. i think the people should take wapons to protect themself.the terrorist government are killing you day by day.the people should make armed groups and protect themself in area,s like berrory.they should organise protest before sobaeye assemly and governhouse.emroz mardom bayad dist ba eqdam deya.mardome momin bayad pesh pesh bashad.

  7. i think the government of baluchistan is responsible for all these terrorist acts.the chief minister must resign for their post. i think like mohajir,s in karachi the hazara and shia of quetta city must protect them raesani(chief minister of baluchistan)are responsible of all these terrorisime.

  9. کوئٹہ میں نامعلوم افراد نے فائرنگ کر کے پانچ افراد کو ہلاک کر دیا ہے۔ ہلاک ہونے والے افراد کو تعلق اہل تشیع سے بتایا گیا ہے۔

    پولیس نے بتایا ہے کہ ایک پک اپ شرقی بائی پاس پر آ رہی تھی کہ نامعلوم افراد نے اس پر فائرنگ کر دی جس سے پانچ افراد ہلاک ہوئے ہیں۔

    ہلاکشدگان کا تعلق اہل تشیع سے بتایا گیا ہے۔ اس بارے میں پاکستان عزاداری کونسل کے رہنما رحیم جعفری سے رابطہ کیا تو انھوں نے کہا کہ کوئٹہ میں ٹارگٹ کلنگ کا سلسلہ جاری ہے جس میں ہزارہ قبیلے کے اہل تشیع کو نشانہ بنایا جا رہا ہے لیکن حکومت اس بارے میں بے بس نظر آتی ہے ۔

    وزیر اعلی بلوچستان نواب اسلم رئیسانی نے دو روز پہلے کہا تھا کہ ٹارگٹ کلنگ کے حوالے سے چار افراد ہو حراست میں لیا گیا ہے۔

    دو روز پہلے ڈبل روڈ پر نامعلوم افراد نے فائرنگ کر کے باپ بیٹے کو ہلاک کر دیا تھا جبکہ گزشتہ ہفتے سریاب روڈ پر نامعلوم افراد نے فائرنگ کر کے باپ اور پانچ بیٹوں پر فائرنگ کر دی تھی جس سے باپ اور تین بیٹے موقع پر ہلاک ہو گئے تھے جبکہ باقی دو تین روز بعد دم توڑ گئے تھے۔

    کوئٹہ میں مبینہ فرقہ وارنہ تشدد کے واقعات کے حوالے سے سخت کشیدگی پائی جاتی ہے ۔ رحیم جعفری نے مطالبہ کیا ہے کہ بلوچستان میں گورنر راج لگایا جائے۔ انھوں نے کہا کہ اس بارے میں گورنر وزیر اعلی اور کور کمانڈر سمیت وفاقی سطح پر حکمرانوں سے رابطے کیے گئے لیکن ان کی سنوائی نہیں ہوئی ہے۔

  10. Dear editor ban me but I will say my last words to Shia London and his clones:

    Mr. Shia London. Every one who is not Shia will burn in HELL?

    Look dear, Sunnies also respected Ali, Hasan and Husein. But what happened? Your extemist Shiaism made them hate whatever Shias loved, respected and vice versa. So, Hell is here in this world. Smell the exploded brains, guts. This is not humanity. Life means to maintaine the life. If we had come just to die n this world then no one ever had practiced medicine!
    Whatever in the name of religion is happenning around us is wrong. Human lives are lost. Life is precious. People must understand it before it’s too late.
    Yazid is well known. A coward man. Every brave man hates him. But, those who were respected and spared by Hz. Ali must be respected by today’s Shias as well.
    Whether it was Hz. Ali’s political issue or compromize, what ever it was, for those of us who respect Hz. Ali must respect Sunnies and their beliefs.
    Mr. shia london, best regards.
    And for masses, I am not in any means trying to make a force of Sunnies and Shias agains third or forth force. Just trying to ease the conflicts between Sunnies and Shias.
    Shias, Sunnies, must realise that a human is different than killing a chicken. Please be careful all of us, the HUMANS.
    Pakistan is breaking as we can see today. We can nor waite for Pakistani security forces to secure us. So, it is better to take our own measures to secure our selves. Because the enemy attacks even a weak and unarmed Hazara. Nothing can be worst than this. For Hazaras nothing has changed.
    Still a Hazara life is so cheap. WHY?
    If we are not secured, then what this world is for? Any value? No. We must think hard. Hard and hard. Change is MUST. We need to get free. How? We all must think. There is something wrong. And that is a chain which is holding us and keeping us unchanged! Find that out.
    Best wishes to all.

      when ever and where any starnge or beganah Ideology comes it brings a number of Beganah Heroes and mind sets … and as people have lost their own idealogies and they dont know anything regarding the New imposed ideology so they do what ever they are asked to ….complete Slave of the God of imposed ideology … but in fact of the people who are imposed on them …From Hazara Qabaristan (which coz of a Beganah Hazrat Ashraf Zaidi Allahu Sallam is behisht zainab ) to the Qabaristan’s of Bamiyan and around Bamiyan in whole Hazarajat .. every Mazar is Qabar e Laaen e Yag Syed ( Facist e Muqqadas ).
