76-page Investigative Report on Hazara Genocide

Quetta: Minority Support Pakistan has released a 76-page independent investigative report by a fact-finding mission of international observers and legal experts who came to Quetta in November, 2011. Titled, “The Shia Hazara of Pakistan; a Community Under Siege”, the report is a detailed documentation and evidence of attacks on Hazaras in Quetta since last ten years.

The report combines a number of diverse elements including: extensive background information on the Hazara people and province of Balochistan; detailed accounts and a summary record of the now 20-year history of sectarian violence in Quetta; extensive anecdotal evidence from survivors of recent attacks; photographic documentation; legal petitions and proceedings from the Balochistan High Court; narrative analysis from senior members of the community; and a synthesis of news media and community accounts highlighting the negligence and ineptitude of local, provincial, and national law enforcement agencies. The conclusion of the report provides a series of actionable recommendations to be undertaken by various agencies and stakeholders in law enforcement, judiciary, legislature, the media, and Pakistani civil society at large.
