Hazara women protest against targeted killings


Around 100 activists of Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) Women Wing on Monday staged a protest in front of the Balochistan Assembly against the ongoing target killingd of their community on sectarian basis in the province, particularly in Quetta. The protesters made a unique protest by throwing hundreds of bangles on the gate of the assembly and hung a hundred more on the signboard of the assembly building with the help of a rope.
Nazneen Zaman told journalists that the protesters presented bangles to MPAs to jolt their souls for being a lame duck in providing security to the Hazara community and bringing the culprits to book. The protesters were carrying party flags and placards inscribed with different demands such as “Down with sectarianism and incompetent Balochistan government”. The protesters said that the provincial government had completely failed to provide them security killings of Hazaras was going on since a decade, which had even forced women to come out on roads.
