Vienna: Thousands of protesters marched on streets of Vienna, Austria on April 28 condemning the systematic genocide of Hazaras in Quetta, Pakistan. The protesters rallied in front of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights and speakers urged the European Union to condemn a humanitarian crisis in Quetta city of Pakistan, where an ethnic minority is living under constant fear and trauma because of routine attacks by sectarian terrorists of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi who kill them for their Shia faith.
Protesters were holding banners and placards condemning the Government of Pakistan for its utter failure to provide security to Hazaras. Banners read: “Stop Genocide of Hazaras in Pakistan”, “UN Take Notice”. Speakers said that more than 700 members of the Hazara community have been killed, but not a single killer is prosecuted by the Government. They added that the strong security establishment of Pakistan and its military intelligence agencies have given free hand to Lashkar-e-Jhangvi to mass-slaughter Hazaras. They urged the international community to stop a humanitarian crisis. Thousands of Hazaras have migrated from Quetta, and people have stopped traveling from one part of the city to another, and living under constant fear of attacks.
The speakers said if the Pakistani security establishment does not launch crackdown against LeJ operatives in Quetta, Balochistan, they will have to take further steps by knocking the doors of International Court of Justice and United Nations.
