NEW YORK, May 4: Scores of Balochi-Hazara people held a demonstration in front of the United Nations on Friday in protest against the killings of innocent Hazara civilians daily by militant Taliban-style organisations.

Men and women carried placards with slogans ‘UN Don’t Allow Quetta to become another Rwanda”, “Stop the killings” and down, down, Zardari”.

They shouted “stop the killings of Hazara in Balochistan” and other slogans.

In a press statement, the coalition of Hazara people blamed Lashkar-i-Jhangavi whom they called a Taliban affiliate, for the mass murders of students and Hazara business leaders.

They claimed that since 1999 more than 2,100 Hazara people had been killed in targeted attacks.
