Hazara Shia sit-in against genocide continues on third day

Quetta’s Shia Hazara community continued protesting the suicide attack at Hazarganji Fruit Market for a third consecutive day on Sunday (today).
Rights activist Jalila Haider, Tahir Hazara and some other notables are leading protesters at sit-in.
The Hazara community has also staged protest demonstrations against the killings following the attack.
At least 19 people, including eight members of the Hazara community, were killed and 48 others were wounded in a suicide blast on Friday whose responsibility was claimed by the Qari Husain faction of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan as well as the militant Daesh group.
On Saturday, despite reassurances by federal minister Ali Zaidi, the protesters refused to call off their sit-in until all their demands were met, including the arrests of those involved in the attack, steps for protection of the community, and implementation of NAP without discrimination.
