The last few weeks have seen a shocking increase in the Shia killings in Gilgit Baltistan and Balochistan. According to the Human Rights Watch, some 275 Hazaras have been killed in Balochistan since 2008. In the last ten days, some 30 Hazaras have been gunned down. No one has been charged with these crimes
There was no legal or political support to Hazaras after the September mayhem, in which some 30 Hazara men were removed from a bus in Mastung (near Quetta) and shot dead. The daily Dawn called it “descent to a new low”.
