Interior Minister Shaikh Rashid Ahmed and Army Chief Bajwa is accompanying PM on the Visit
Protests over the carnage of Shia Hazara mine workers in Pakistan’s Quetta has finally ended as the families declared the burial after two central ministers along with the chief minister of Balochistan again visited the site and assured the Hazara community that PM Imran Khan had accepted their demands.
The mourning families were notified that PM Imran Khan, Interior Minister Shaikh Rashid Ahmed and Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa were expected to visit Quetta on Saturday according to reports.
Hazara community in Balochistan’s Quetta had been protesting the brutal killing of 11 of their community members by ISIS on Sunday.
The protests have further spread to the other cities of the country, including Karachi. The protesters are demanding the dissolution of the provincial government of Balochistan and strong action by Islamabad to find and punish the culprits.
Khan has appealed to the Hazara community to bury those who were killed in the attack. “I am using this platform to say that if you bury them today, I will go to Quetta to meet the families of the deceased,” he said.
“This should be clear. All of your demands have been met but you can’t impose a condition which has [no logic]. So first, bury the dead. If you do it today then I guarantee you that I will come to Quetta today,” Khan said.
