  1. My Dear Hazara Brothers and Sisters,
    My heat weeps for you. If it means anything to you, please note that other Pakistanis care about you.
    I grew up in quetta and many of my childhood friends were Hazaras. I have great respect for you. I have always found Hazara people to be educated, civilized, and peaceful.
    The sheer incompetence of the law enforcement agencies is absolutely criminal. Their inability to catch the animals involved in these target killings tells us a lot about the state of affairs in Quetta in particular, and Pakistan in general.
    It is time for all the good people of Quetta to come out and protest along side our Hazara brothers and sisters before it is too late to do anything. (God Forbid)
    Finally, May Allah give have his mercy on us all.
