Renowned Hazara lawyer, Advocate Wulayet’s murder–on Thursday Oct 01– is continuation of terrorism against Hazaras in Quetta Pakistan. Since the assassination of Hussain Ali Yousafi, Chairman Hazara Democratic Party, many renowned Hazara professionals have been targeted. Last month, Ahmed Ali Najafi, the Hazara industrialist and owner of Noorband Factories was killed in broad dalight. Yet over a hundred innocent Hazara lives have been shot in 2009.
The Government of Pakistan and its security organizations have been reluctant to stop the terror-campaign against the ethnic Hazaras, suffering target-killing since last 10 years in Pakistan. Only in the last five months of 2009, over a hundred people have been killed in different incidents. The target-killing incident have increased since the new provincial government under Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani.In all these incidents, innocent people are targeted on head by highly-professional and trained shooters. Yet non of the murderers have been arrested. After each assassination, the Government and its security agencies assure of arresting the culprits very soon. But yet no one has been arrested, despite the fact that security agencies are well-aware of the religious extremists behind the terror-campaign against Hazaras.
Interior Minister of Balochistan province in a statement last month said that the government know the hands behind the target-killing but it can’t take action against them. He was clearly mentioning the strong security agencies. State is being totally failed to maintain security for its citizens. The provincial government is responsible for the campaign of target killing. Hazara political leaders have been demanding huge changes in the ranks of police officials in Balochistan.
