The perpetual attacks against Shia Muslims of Balochistan are particularly hurting Quetta’s Hazara community because it is relatively easy to identify and attack Hazaras due to their particular physical features.
The aim of this post is to introduce Abdul Khaliq Hazara, leader of Hazara Democratic Party – a pseudo-secular ethnic party through which ISI operates among the Hazara-Shias of Quetta.
He is the same individual who recently gave an infamous interview to Ejaz Haider (now more befittingly known on twitter as Ejaz Haider Jhangvi) in which he had labeled the people he claims to represent as Iranian agents. In Abdul Khaliq Hazara ‘s words, Hazara Shias:

“Minorities can rest assured that their rights will be protected. No civilized Government can be run successfully without giving minorities a complete sense of security and confidence. They must be made to feel that they have a hand in Government and to do this they must have adequate representation in it. Pakistan will give this”
Unfortunately, today’s Pakistan is quite opposite to the country visioned by Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Minorities especially Shia Muslims , Ahmadi Muslims , Hindus , Sikhs & Christians are treated with prejudice and violence.
Welcome to my leaks. Yes, I leak….. good information.
Recently, I intercepted this sketch (made by Syed Ali Asghar Rafzi Sabai Irani) that was being circulated by the anti-Taliban liberal fascists!
It is a sketch of human rights activist Wali Jayan, Muslim rights activist Falak Miswaak and their true leaders and supporters, the generals and the judges who have saved Pakistan.
This post is useful to understand the politics of blocking and unblocking on Twitter.
As a Shia Hazara activist, it was painful for me to observe on 2-7 October 2011 how certain urban “liberal” elites in Pakistani media and civil society (namely Ali Dayan Hasan, Raza Rumi and Marvi Sirmed) collectively harassed a Hazara activist (a propagandist of Abdul Khaliq Hazara’s Hazara Democratic Party HDP), M. Saleem Javed, forcing him to mend his ways and discourse consistent with their own narratives.
Please read the following conversation from bottom to top in order to see how urban fake liberals were able to harass and bring an impressionable Hazara activist in line with their own discourse.
Editor’s note: Lately there is some evidence that Pakistan Blogzine’s advocacy for Pakistani Shia Muslims (the most target killed faith group in the country) is receiving some attention in Pakistani and international media. Two weeks ago Sadanand Dhume wrote an article in the Wall Street Journal on the plight of Pakistani Shias referring to the online petition on Shia killings which was initiated by Pakistan Blogzine. Today, Leela Jacinto of France24 has written an excellent article which refers to the Pakistan Blogzine’s article that criticized HRCP’s weak statement on Shia killings. There is another important piece on Shia killings in today’s Dawn by I.A.Rehman in which he notes: “Many instances of collusion between sectarian killers and
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
Laibaah, the liberal fascist, must refrain from attacking human rights defenders – by Ali Dayan and Beena Sarwar
Editor’s note: In the light of some feedback received from various activists within and outside Pakistan, I wrote a brief, critical post on HRCP’s statement on the massacre of 30 Shias in Mastung. Apparently, my post was hugely disliked by some leading champions of human rights including Ali Dayan Hasan (HRW), Beena Sarwar (CFD) and Raza Rumi (PTH/TFT). Beena called me a liberal

PAKISTAN: Members of Shia community were under attack while the military forces look on
Members of one of the largest sects of Islam, the Shiaite community, came under attack from militant Islamic organizations which, in the past had the patronage of Pakistan army and its intelligence agencies who offered
As a nation we are getting sicker – we refuse to accept the existence of our disease. We call ourselves humans; we call ourselves people of faith and many other names. But what we don’t call ourselves is what we have become: soulless. And yesterday’s brazen Nazi style attack on a bus full of pilgrims proves exactly that.
Twenty six people were lined up and shot because of their faith.

Daily Outlook Afghanistan’s appeal to HRW, Amnesty and UNCHR: Take notice of Hazara genocide in Pakistan
Editor’s note: After the recent reporting of Pakistan Blogzine’s petition in the Wall Street Journal, slowly but surely international media is paying some attention to the silent mass murder of Shia Muslims which is ongoing in Pakistan for last sever years. We are cross-posting an editorial by the Daily Outlook Afghanistan, which clearly supports our stance on this topic. For example:

We are pleased to cross-post an unusual article in Wall Street Journal which highlights the silent systematic mass murder of Shia Muslims in Pakistan by Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), Taliban (TTP) etc which is on going since late 1980s.
The author clearly refers to this petition (initiated by Pakistan Blogzine) when he writes: “The country’s Shia are worried. In July, hundreds took to the streets of Quetta to protest the ongoing killings. Others have begun an online petition to draw attention to their plight.”
Sadanand Dhume’s article is an important first step in highlighting the silent mass murder of Shia Muslims currently taking place in Pakistan. While we appreciate the author, particularly his interest and courage in highlighting
Editor’s note: “The resilience of Hazara people in Quetta is wearing thin, but they are hoping that some day things will change for the better.” We thank Fasi Zaka for drawing our attention to this excellent article on Hazara Shias which we are cross-posting on Pakistan Blogzine for further reflections on this oft ignored and misrepresented genocide.
