Hazara United Movement (HUM), United Kingdom is gravely concern over the safety of 30 Hazara passengers who were abducted from local buses in Sha Joi district of Zabul Province six days ago. Ironically, the deliberate silence of the the mainstream Afghan political parties and their leadership including the Afghanistani Hazara leaders is highly reprehensible given the sensitivity of current kidnapping issue.

Taking serious notice of this dire matter, HUM and Hazara International Forum of Great Britain called an emergency meeting on 28th February in London to formulate a viable strategy for raising this issue to the international level and exerting pressure on the Afghan Government for safe release of the abductees. Among others, the meeting was attended by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Third World Solidarity who have concluded a number of urgent initiatives. It was also decided to hold a meeting with the Afghan Ambassador to UK and relaying such concerns for safe release of the abductees as well as holding a conference in the House of Commons on 11th March, 2015.

HUM condoles with the affected families of abductees and ensures to take every possible step for mounting pressure for release of the innocent Hazara passengers.
