16 September 2005 (BBC News)

Pakistani activists have reacted with outrage to recent comments on rape victims by President Pervez Musharraf. He said that rape was a “money-making concern” and many argued it was a way to get money and a visa to emigrate. Pakistan’s most-high profile rape victim, Mukhtar Mai, told the BBC no woman could subject herself to “such a horrendous experience” to make money. Women’s groups and activists protested in Karachi on Friday, shouting: “Down with chauvinism”.

PPP MNA Ayatullah Durrani on @MunizaeJahangir’s show: Hazaras are happy being killed because it helps them get asylum in Australia. Ayatullah Durrani’s comment that the Shia-Hazara are selling their dead to get asylum in Australia is insulting!

As a person who has lost his brother to these barbarians, it was painful to listen to this uncouth apologist.

Ayatullah Durani of #PPP on Express TV: Hazara killings in #Balochistan help the community seek refuge in #Australia.
‘The Hazaras are selling their dead to seek asylum in #Australia’ Ayatullah Durani, #PPP spokesperson in #Balochistan.

I voted for PPP & demand apology to Hazara of #Balochistan. PPP should issue Ayatollah Durrani a show cause. This is just not acceptable

#PPP always took stance for minorities dont blame party on durrani comments

As we thank @munizaejahangir , we still maintain she shd’ve invited someone from Hazara community. It’s a tragic shame that someone like Durrani represents PPP.In the presence of a PPP stalwart like Sadiq Imrani, his presence in the program was gratuitous. No matter what, he must unconditionally apologize. PPP must ensure this happens

Balochistan Chief Minister Aslam Raisani's remarks on the Quetta killings.

Quetta: Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Aslam Raisani has said the killing of 40 Hazaras in Mastung is not a big deal. While talking to media in Islamabad, Nawab Raisani said

Of the millions who live in Balochistan, 40 dead in Mastung is not a big deal. I will send a truckload of tissue papers to the bereaved families. I’d send tobacco if I weren’t a politician. (Source: Nawaiwaqt / Hazara News)

  1. Already eliciting scathing criticism for its inability to solve the energy crisis, the government faced another line of attack on Tuesday as members of the National Assembly, including some from the ruling alliance, demanded the resignations of cabinet members and other senior officials for their failure to curb sectarian killings in Balochistan.
    At least 14 people of the Hazara community – an ethnic minority that follows Shia Islam – were gunned down outside Quetta early on Tuesday morning in the second such incident within a fortnight.
    Anger over the killings dominated proceedings of the lower house of Parliament, even overshadowing what was expected to be another day of criticism of the government over its handling of the energy crisis and the floods in Sindh.
    Only two speeches were made on the floor of the assembly about the energy crisis, which were then followed by a walkout by members of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
    The onslaught against the government was led by one of its own – Nasir Ali Shah, of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party, himself an ethnic Hazara representing Quetta. He said that the brutal murder of over a dozen men from the community reflected a complete collapse of the government’s law enforcing machinery in the heart of the province.
    Shah called for the resignations of Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani and went on to call for governor’s rule in the province.
    “Hazara people are being targeted just because of their religious beliefs. Where is the government, where are the agencies? Aren’t they Pakistanis?” Shah asked before he walked out of the house.
    Nasir’s demand was vehemently backed by Pakistan Muslim League-Q’s Riaz Hussain Pirzada who went a step even further and asked the federal government and those of Balochistan and Sindh to resign for their failure to control killings.
    “Resign if you can’t do better,” Pirzada advised the government in what appeared to be an indication of changes that might emerge in Pakistan’s politics in weeks to come.
    Bushra Gohar of the Awami National Party (ANP) said somebody had to take responsibility for failing to protect minorities and Raisani and Malik should have enough moral courage to resign. PPP member Nadeem Afzal Gondal sought an explanation from both Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and Rehman Malik over the killings of Shias.

    Legislator from Balochistan demands Governor’s Rule
    ISLAMABAD – Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) legislator Syed Nasir Ali Shah refused to back down from his demand for Governor’s Rule in Balochistan as he sat in outside Parliament House for the second consecutive day in protest against the massacre of the marginalised Hazara community in his province.
    “The only solution to the genocide of Hazara community in Quetta, and other target killings in Balochistan, is imposition of Governor’s Rule,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “The provincial government has failed to protect people’s lives and must be dissolved,” he said. Gunmen on motorcycles ordered Hazara Shia passengers off a bus near Quetta and killed 13 of them on Tuesday. It was the second such attack in less than a month.
    Interior Minister Rehman Malik said buses in Quetta would be protected by armed guards. Talking to reporters outside the Parliament, he said the Balochistan Home Department had been told each van would be guarded by one gunman and each bus by two. Eight police vehicles would patrol Hazara and Mariabad areas of the provincial capital and escort buses if necessary.
    But Nasir Shah said the government was protecting the killers rather than the victims. “A four-kilometre area in Quetta is the hub of trouble where killers hide after committing crimes of genocide, and police officials take no action,” he said. Shah said bodies of missing Baloch nationalists were being found every day and no one had been arrested. However, Malik said “external forces” who had created unrest in Karachi were trying to create trouble in Balochistan.

    Members of the Balochistan Assembly have demanded that the provincial government bring culprits of the Mastung sectarian attack to book, in a resolution passed on Thursday.
    Provincial Minister for Quality Education Jan Ali Changezi, who belongs to the Hazara community, tabled a resolution soon after proceedings began. The resolution outlined the attack, saying a passenger bus bound for Iran was intercepted by armed assailants from the banned organisation Lashkar-e-Jhangvi who identified those who were Shia and killed them in cold blood.
    “It is condemnable that police and other law enforcing agencies were not visible in the entire attack,” the resolution states.
    “The government, it seems, is not serious about stopping the targeted killing of members of the Hazara community,” Changezi told the assembly. “Killings of Shia people have increased this year but in all of those incidents, we have seen no real action on part of the police or the government. Police wasn’t present even at the suicide attack on the Eid congregation and these unabated attacks show the authorities’ failure.”
    Today, it is us Shia people who are being targeted, Changezi said, tomorrow people from some other sect or ethnicity could face the same problem.
    But Ali Madad Jatak, PPP’s deputy parliamentary leader in the assembly, attempted to dilute the matter by pointing out recent killings of Sunni religious scholars. “People from all ethnic and religious sects are being targeted in Balochistan,” he said, without making reference to any particular sect.
    However, Jatak did not stop at that and said that it will not be tolerated if anyone burns shops or markets in Quetta in reaction to any such incident.
    This caused uproar in the house as Changezi termed Jatak’s speech a ‘threat’ to his community and, upon intervention from other members, Jatak explained his remarks, saying he condemned the Hazara killings and only meant to assure his fellow minister that the government was working towards ensuring security.
    The Mastung attack was the second major attack on the Shia community in Balochistan in the month of September. Following the gruesome assault that killed 26 people, Iran reacted by shutting down the trade gate at the Pakistan border and the Pakistani government is now considering special airline flights for Shia pilgrims to Iran.
