After Saturday’s bloodshed in Quetta, the Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) on Sunday gave a 48 hours ultimatum to Balochistan government to kick off a ‘targeted operation’ and hunt down the culprits behind Kirani road blast.
“People of Hazara are being eliminated through a well-planned target killing and if this didn’t stop we will be justified in taking any step,” he said. “This terror incident in Quetta would not have taken place had the government unmasked culprits of last month’s killings.”
Reports said the death toll from bombing in Quetta climbed to 83. The figure could rise because 20 people were critically wounded in the attack in a main bazaar at Hazara Town.
In a statement on Sunday, Azizullah Hazara said that the community would stage sit-in outside the Balochistan High Court (BHC) on daily basis if the elements behind the killing of Shiites not arrested in a given deadline. He added that they would also stage protest in Europe, Australia and outside the United Nations.
The HDP leader demanded the government to make arrangement to shift the injured of the blast to Karachi and outside the country for better treatment.
