QUETTA – The Quetta Yakjehti Council warned on Saturday the Shia community would launch a countrywide protest if the governor’s rule was lifted.
He expressed satisfaction over Balochistan Governor Magsi’s cooperation with the Shia community, and at the same time showed disapproval of the slow pace the political administration was treading with. Hazara said the sacked ministers were making a hue and cry over the governor’s rule only because they could not loot or plunder any more. The Quetta Yakjehti Council, he said, was a non-political platform and would not allow any political group to use it for its propaganda. “This council would emerge as a force against barbarism and cruelty very soon,” he added.
Hazara condemned the twin bombings in Alamdar area of Quetta that killed more than 100 people. He thanked the media for giving proper coverage to their January 10 sit-in.
“It (Quetta) is our home; it is our responsibility to make efforts for restoration of peace here,” concluded the Shia leader.
