Protest in Kabul Against Kuchi Attack in Behsud

Kabul: Thousands of people staged a protest demonstration on Shaheed Mazari Square in West Kabul on May 20 against the Kuchi attack in Behsud. Angry protesters chanted slogans and displayed placards criticizing Karzai for keeping silence and supporting armed Kuchis. MPs and other speakers condemned Karzai for his ethnocentrism. They demanded the international community in Afghanistan to take notice of Kuchi attack. The placards read “Kuchi Murders, Karzai Supports”, “stop Hazara massacre”, “We want justice”.

The speakers further said Kuchi have invaded Behsud with heavy sophisticated arms, and they are burning down homes of thousands of families. The MPs strongly demanded the international community to take notice of Hazara killings in Behsud by armed Kuchis. They asked why the disarmament program is not being implemented on Kuchis?

Haji Muhammad Mohaqiq, Member of Parliament, leader of Wahdat Party and a Hazara politician also spoke to the protesters and strongly condemned the Government for murder of innocent villagers in Behsud by Kuchis. He said “Kuchis have burnt down homes and looted livestock of the people destroying their pastures.” He warned the President to immediately call back Kuchis and rehabilitate the displaced families, otherwise protest would extend across the country. Mohaqiq said the UN should take serious notice of the invasion and appealed the international community and United Nations to intervene and avoid Kuchi nomads massacring the people of Behsud District.
