Hazara United Movement (HUM), United Kingdom feels great concern about the deteriorating security situation of Quetta which has mainly inflicted casualties to the Hazaras. The insensitive and corrupt Raisani Government, in the previous democratic regime, showed gross negligence in providing security to the people of Balochistan province. However, the existing federal and provincial governments seem to have adopted the footsteps of their predecessors and the Genocide of Hazaras is picking up heat after a momentarily pause.
The citizens of Pakistan came out of their homes on 11st May this year to elect a democratic government with the hope of receiving relief but the incumbent government heeds no attention to the most serious issues such as worsening law and order situation across Pakistan. The office bearers of PML (N) have been in close contacts with the extremists of Lashker-e-Jhangvi in Punjab province while, it is not surprising to note that the Taliban and the Lashker-e-Jhangvi are not carrying out suicide bombings, explosions and targeted attacks in Punjab.
HUM is in complete awe over the Aliabad suicide and planted bomb explosions which took the lives of over 40 innocent people and injured scores of others who are mostly children and young girls. The government claims to have deployed sufficient security personnel in Hazara-inhabited areas of Quetta but the regular terrorist attacks demand immediate administrative agility to track down these terrorists. When the intelligence agencies of Pakistan can apprehend over 600 most dangerous Al-Qaeda terrorists from across the country, how is possible that a small band of Lashker-e-Jhangvi’s terrorists go untraced and unnoticed whose claims and press releases are regularly published on national newspapers?
The democratic forces, intelligentsia, members of civil society, the political parties and all other peaceful Pakistanis must move a step ahead of consolatory statements to thwart the unlawful means of terrorist organisations such as Lashker-e-Jhangvi. The government should start immediate military operation against LeJ in Quetta.
HUM is greatly grieved over the loss of lives of innocent people and pray for the rapid recovery of the injured.
