A number of Afghan citizens have launched a campaign on Twitter to protest the “targeted killing” of Hazaras.
Launched under the name (StopHazaraGenocide #), the campaign says the world must recognize the killing of millennials as “genocide” and work to protect the millennials.
Arif Rahmani, a member of the Afghan House of Representatives, wrote that the Afghan government’s refusal to acknowledge the “genocide” of the Hazaras, political and human rights organizations and elites is a “double oppression” of this section of citizens “oppressed and discriminated against”.
Rahmani expressed hope that the Afghan government, by acknowledging this “genocide”, would take serious measures to end it. “The world must not turn a blind eye to this systematic genocide,” he stressed.
Ahmad Behzad, a former member of the Afghan House of Representatives, wrote: “Targeted killing; It is part of the removal policy. This policy is implemented in different areas with different methods and tools. There is a significant relationship between millennial genocide and systematic discrimination against this society. The causes of murder and discrimination are thought to be eliminated. “To end the killing, end discrimination.”
Nasser Teymouri, Transparency International’s Advocacy and Communications Officer, wrote that the “genocide” of Hazaras in Afghanistan, especially in a series of attacks in western Kabul after the attack on the Sayyid al-Shuhada school, ” “Health, religion, education, mosques and… were systematically attacked in western Kabul.”
Hasiba Effat, a former member of the Parwan Provincial Council, is another user who has addressed the issue. Ms. Effat wrote that none of Afghanistan’s tribes were safe, but that “the systematic and systematic killing of the Hazara brothers and sisters should not be silenced.”
Parviz Shamal writes that in Afghanistan all ethnic groups, including Hazaras, Pashtuns, Tajiks, Uzbeks and others, have been affected, but the fact cannot be ignored that the old, young, children and even infants of any ethnic group like Hazaras have not been attacked just because of their lineage. And has not been “slaughtered.”
Journalist Khalil Pajhwok described the Hazaras’ insistence that the killing of these people was “genocidal” as a struggle not for privilege or honor, but as a “minimal” attempt to recognize suffering.
Afghan President Sahra Karimi called the film the targeted killing of a certain ethnic group a flare-up of divisions and enmities between ethnic groups living in Afghanistan, establishing injustice and oppression. “Targeted killings are a genocidal consequence of a specific ethnic group and should not be silenced,” he wrote.
Nazanin Watandust, another user apparently of Tajik descent, wrote that her humanity would be called into question if the genocide of her Hazara brothers and sisters did not work.
Another user wrote that the government has about 300,000 defense forces, but cannot provide security for the Hazaras in the capital. This user has made it possible that the government is involved in the genocide of the Hazaras in coordination with the terrorists.
Leila Forough Mohammadi, a civil activist, wrote: “Hazaras have been a symbol of civilization and democracy in Afghanistan. They have been carrying guns and holding pens for many years, but they are being killed on purpose every day in universities, streets, schools and mosques.”
Another user wrote: “Some / some people think that if we insist on the genocide of the Hazaras, our national unity will be destroyed and our ethnicity will feel safe and ethnic, but on the contrary, if we ignore the genocide of the Hazaras. “These negligences harm our national unity.”
Ghodsiyeh said that national unity is displayed when all tribes stand by the Hazara people and do not ignore the genocide against this people.
Mohammad Jalal also wrote that in the heart of the hills of knowledge, enlightenment and education in the west of Kabul, only those who were killed for the “crime” of being Hazaras have rested. “How can we close our eyes to all this sorrow and pain and hide behind the mask of stereotyped professions?” He asked.
Meanwhile, a wave of targeted attacks has recently begun in western Kabul. On May 7, the Sayyid al-Shuhada school in western Kabul was attacked, killing about 90 people and injuring more than 240 others.
Last week, at least four car bomb blasts in the third and sixth districts of Kabul killed nearly 20 civilians and injured more than 20 others.
Sarwar Danesh, the second vice president, called the recent repeated attacks in the West “killing and genocide” and said that security agencies and those directly responsible for providing security in the government were obliged to respond to the “killing and genocide” as soon as possible. Take action and be accountable to the people.
Earlier, the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) called the attack on the Sayyid al-Shuhada school an “ethnic cleansing and genocide.”
The families of the victims of the attack on the Sayyid al-Shuhada school also called on the Afghan government and the international community to recognize the attack as an example of “genocide.”
