Since October 8, there have been widespread protests against the “genocide” of the Hazaras. Large crowds have most recently protested against the Hazara genocide in Austria, America, South Korea, and Turkey.
Protesters gathered in Vienna, Austria’s capital, on October 16th to call for an end to the Hazara genocide in Afghanistan. The demonstrators also kept screaming anti-Taliban chants. A member of the Austrian parliament, Harald Troch, also joined the protesters and offered his support.
Meanwhile, a large crowd of Afghan citizens protested against the Hazara genocide in Seoul, the capital city of South Korea.
On the same day, Hazara protests took place in Turkey, France, the Netherlands, the US, and Scotland. Over the past eight days, beginning on October 8, Hazara protests have continued all over the world.
Parallel to the global protests, a Twitter campaign also grew popular in protest to the atrocities committed against the Hazara ethnic group in Afghanistan. The campaign hashtag, “#StopHazaraGenocide” has been tweeted over 12 million times.
These protests, which are unprecedented both in terms of their kind and from the perspective of Afghan citizens, have already begun in more than 100 cities around the world.
About 60 students—mostly girls—were killed and 114 others were wounded in the explosion attack on the Kaaj education center. The protestors claim that Hazaras are not safe anywhere.
According to the protestors, the recent attack that took place in the Hazara neighborhood of Kabul is an egregious example of the “genocide” against Hazaras.
