Responsible department: Foreign and Commonwealth Office
The Hazaras are being massacred in Quetta Pakistan by sectarian outfits, with the support of Pakistani security agencies, the Pakistani government is
turning a blind eye to this genocide and refusing to bring the terrorists to justice.
It is our responsibility to try and stop this mindless and barbaric ethnic cleansing of a minority group who are persecuted in Pakistan. On 20/09/2011 another 31 ethnic Hazaras were massacred in broad daylight, yet the Pakistani government is refusing to take any action. Since the attacks on twin towers in New York on September 11 2001 the Hazaras have borne the brunt of fundamentalist Islam, Over 800 of them have been killed by Taliban and Al Qaeda allies in Quetta alone.
It is time that the Foreign Office raise this issue with Pakistani government and help stop the genocide of HAZARAS
