LONDON, August 14th, 2010: Hazara International Forum strongly condemns unprovoked assault on property and life of Hazaras in various areas of Kabul, Afghanistan. The unfortunate incident, happening on 13th August, 2010 in different areas of West Kabul, has engulfed lives of over 25 innocent Hazaras who fell victim to indiscriminate firing of the Pashtun cum Taliban Nomads in perpetual attack. The Pashtun Nomads were helped by Afghan National Army and the Local Police who neglected their professional responsibilities of protecting lives and property of citizens but spared no time in opening fire at people protesting against ferocious attack of the Pashtun Nomads.
HIF is deeply saddened of irreparable loss of human lives and condoles with the aggrieved families. HIF Central Chairman, Agha Marzooq Ali has called an emergency meeting of the Central Committee on Sunday, (15-08-2010) at its headquarters to chalk out a pragmatic plan to take up this grievous issue with the UN, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and European Union. A delegation of Afghan Hazaras have also requested to meet the HIF Chairman and its members the same day to raise a concrete voice against brutalities and atrocities of the Pashtun Nomads who are being supported by the Taliban and local leaders to attack innocent Hazaras in Afghanistan.
