Demonstration Outside 10 Downing Street Against State-Sponsored Genocide of Hazaras in Afghanistan

Kid Traumatised After Recent Suicide Explosion in West Kabul, Afghanistan

The recent suicide bombing on a student centre in Dashth-e-Barchi area of west Kabul, Afghanistan, instantly killed 48 innocent students, who were attending the preparatory classes for the entry test to graduate admissions. The severity of the suicide explosion raised the death toll to over 100 students, with scores others critically injured.

Releasing the image of the purported suicide bomber through social media, ISIS claimed the responsibility of the attack and vowed for more such attacks against the beleaguered Hazara minority.

Such orchestrated suicide explosions cannot take place without complicity of Ashraf Ghani and the National Directorate of Security (NDS) who are involved in patronising the terrorist groups in Afghanistan to suppress the knowledge-seeking and university-going Hazaras and aim to confine hem to their localities. Nonetheless, the peaceful Hazara civilians have vowed to defy all imminent life threats and continue with their thirst for education with full determination.

The systematic discrimination emanating from the Afghan Presidential place is overwhelmingly large and widespread which is tarnishing the already fragile atmosphere of peaceful co-existence among major Afghan ethnic groups. Such vivid discriminatory efforts of Ashraf Ghani forced the Hazaras to mobile the masses and form a civil resistance movement with the name of Enlightenment Movement. In order to justify their years’ long demonstrations, the Enlightenment Movement has compiled a list of Afghan ambassadors, currently serving in foreign mission. Sadly, 75% of ambassadorial positions have been occupied by the Pashtuns only. Such an attempt testifies the policy of favouritism, racial bigotry and dictatorship. 

HUM, therefore, announces to hold a demonstration outside 10 Downing Street on Thursday, 23-08-2018. The details of the demonstration are as under:
