Hazaras are staging a sit-in at the Western bypass following Friday morning’s suicide blast in Quetta’s Hazarganji area.
At least 20 people, including a Frontier Constabulary officer and two children, were killed in the explosion.
The protesters said that the government has failed to protect the people. The community has been a target of attacks for the last 20 years and over 3,000 of its members have been killed, they said.
They said that they have been restricted to only their areas and can’t even go to the markets to buy anything or send their children to colleges or schools.
Some members of civil society are also attending the sit-in to express solidarity with the Hazaras.
The protesters said that they won’t end their sit-in until their demands are met.
