HazaraProtest2

Shows a group of grim looking men and boys holding up signs saying, "stop killing Hazaras" as they sit in front of candles.

A photo from a February 2013 protest held by the Hazara Shia community in Quetta, Pakistan in the wake of several horrific bombing that killed dozens. The residents were protesting the Pakistani government’s slow response to the attack and the government’s lack of response to attacks from armed Sunni groups. In the wake of the attack, ambulances and fire services were slow to arrive. The local Hazara community said that was because the Pakistani government was discriminating against helping them.
