Renowned Afghan singer Farhad Darya took part in the demonstration held in Washington D.C. against the “genocide” of the Hazaras and urged the people in a brief speech to stop being divided and unite as one.

Along with his wife, Farhad Darya, another Afghan artist, participated in the mass protest against the systematic abuse of Hazaras that was held in the US capital. Darya said that the people’s voice has now reached a global level and will not be silenced.

These protests, according to Farhad Darya, who actively engages on social media and remarks on the goings-on, “opened the gate of mass protests and it will not stop.”

Global protests against the genocide of Hazaras started on Saturday, October 8th, and are still going on Sunday, October 9th, in more than 100 cities around the world, including Melbourne and cities in Portugal.

The terrorist attack on the Kaaj education center in the Hazara neighborhood of west Kabul on September 30 sparked these widespread protests, the number of which is unprecedented.

The protesters demand an immediate end to the “genocide” being committed against the Hazara minority, citing the attack on Kaaj as a flagrant example of atrocities committed against the Hazara community.

The White House pledged to establish a team of significant government agencies to actively monitor the genocide of Hazaras on a long-term basis.

Farhad Darya previously urged the president of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, to host Afghan refugees for a little more following the reports of forced deportations of Afghan refugees as they await resettlement to other countries.
