Shia People Are Not Muslims; Are Liable To Get Killed: Lashkar-e-Jhangvi

In the Quetta bomb-blast, where the poor Shia Hazara community were again targetted by terror group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has not led Islamabad to take concrete action against so-called good-terrorists. An Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted in a gunny sack filled with potatoes went off in the crowded market, killing 22 people.

Pakistan Delivers a Big Blow To Referendum 2020 For Separate Sikh Land

As expected, there were lip-service condemnations of the attack, orders for reports and assurances of this never happening again. But as the Hazara community has learned over the years – if you are a religious minority in Pakistan, nobody really cares about you.

Since we all wrote praises of New-Zealand PM Jacinda just a few weeks ago, it definitely begs the question: where the hell were these same people when the Hazaras were killed once again in their homes?

Where is our support and solidarity for the people we live with? We can write praises for a leader working tirelessly to keep her community safe, but where was the so-called dynamic PM Imran Khan when the Hazaras resorted to the only way they know how to make everyone listen – a peaceful sit-in protest.

The protest ended last evening after four days where the Hazara community’s men, women and children were sitting through the harsh Quetta weather lamenting the lack of security provided to them, despite open threats from various religious extremists.

Ramzan Mengal, the leader of the local chapter of a proscribed organisation, was released a few days before the Quetta bombing took place. For people who aren’t shocked as yet, please Google him.

He even contested the elections last year, openly spewing hate speech against a significant Muslim minority living in Pakistan, the Shia community. I cannot comprehend how long Pakistan going to live with the pseudo-strategic assets narrative.

An old video, but a disturbing speech by Ramzan Mengal and people must decide if this is the Pakistan they want to live in?
