Thread: Who is behind #Hazarakillings & why?
Hundreds of Hazaras have been killed in multiple attacks & thousands have been forced to leave their business activities in #Quetta. One should note here that most successful businessmen in Qta once were a member of Hazara community.
Between 2010 and 2013, the Hazara community in general and Hazara shopkeepers, intellectuals, officers, and businesspeople remained a prime target. By 2014, such attacks had devastated commerce and snatched away most of Quetta's business from the #HazaraCommunity members.
A Hazara officer from the Intelligence Bureau in Quetta told me in 2015 that he could not digests most of the attacks directed at his community were "sectarian driven." "Some attacks on Hazara were aimed to takeaway Quetta's key business from us," he told me.

Whether we like it or not, the so-called R-APC can't be discounted. They are part of the system and if we see realignments of parties like in 2014, they may win and Nigeria will, once again, be set back decades behind any serious country. I am not happy, just stating the fact.
Again, there is nothing like a single northern bloc, the minorities in N/Nigeria had suffered enough. And this time round, there is growing interest for ppl to get PVC and vote out a govt, they feel does not only marginalized them, but has shown zero interest in their well-being.
Another thing that may play into the hands of the opposition is, military campaigns against #BH is reduced to more than 70% in the raining season and there has been a steady surge in attacks in Dec. Jan. Feb. in the last four yrs. This season, coincides with campaigns elections?
