Hazara Shia women continue hunger strike in protest against genocide

The hunger strike at the sit-in being observed by Shia Hazara community women outside the Quetta Press Club continued on Tuesday. Social activist Advocate Jalila Haider is leading the strike. They have to come out top register their protest against the Shia genocide including unabated targeted murders of Hazara Shia Muslims in Quetta.

The protesters demand an immediate end to the targeting of Shia Hazara community members and arrest of takfiri terrorists involved in these heinous acts.
The hunger strike being carried out by the members of persecuted Hazara community in Quetta to bring attention towards the killing of Hazaras in the city entered its fourth day on Tuesday.
Lawyer and activist Jalila Haider, who is leading the hunger strike camp set up outside Quetta press club, said she will continue the strike until the army chief visits the city and details concrete steps to bring the killers to justice and protect the religious minority.
Haider says Gen Qamar Bajwa should come and console the thousands of widows and orphaned children left by the killing of Hazaras in Pakistan over the past two decades.
In recent months, at least 30 Hazaras have been gunned down in Quetta, however, police have still not arrested any terrorist.
The protest against the unabated killings of Hazaras began Saturday following the targeted killing of two members of Hazara Shia Muslims.
The protesters have repeatedly criticised law enforcement and security agencies for their inaction and failure in preventing Shia Hazaras from being murdered with impunity.
