A protester shouts slogans during a protest in Kabul May 4, 2012. PHOTO: REUTERS
People in Kabul, Afghanistan protest against target killing of Hazara community in Pakistan.
The photos are great but the repeated caption under each photo that says ‘protesters shout ‘Anti-Pakistan’ slogans are a bit misleading and distracting. The Hazara diaspora may be criticizing the government of Pakistan for its inefficiency but labeling all of their slogans as ‘Anti-Pakistan’ can put Hazara community in Quetta at risk… Especting a more responsible reporting, I would request you to remove such comments in the view of the fact that I cannot read a single such placard !!
Sajjad sb …. reporting does not have to coincide with any country’s
ideology and is not concerned with political or social stability of the said country. Reporting should always be unbiased and uncensored. what you are saying does not coincide with the norms of journalism.
I agree with Sajjad, this is not Anti-Pakistan protest. We should make a difference between anti Pakistan anti government. Thousands of people inside Pakistan protest against government policies so what we will call them anti pakistan. There have been protests all over the world to condemn systematic and slow motion genocide of Hazara in Quetta but no one has called it anti Pakistan? I wonder why here is so? This may not be professional journalism because a journalist has to depict the real picture and not to create illusion.Recommend
In the photos not even a single placard of banner carries anti Pakistan slogan.Recommend
No slogans against Pakistan was chanted in the protest demonstration rather they chanting slogans against the Government and genocide of Hazaras in Pakistan. It is clear from the placards in persian / English which read as ” Stop Genocide of Hazaras in Pakistan”
I ask you hazaras to what do you say about other shia killing in pakistan lets say what do you make of shia killing in karachi are they killing hazaras over there to . Check out http://www.shiakilling.com
i disagree with naveed totally….i think that anyone having an inkling of journalism etihc will see the folly in his argumentRecommend
Where are the anti-Pakistan slogans? Recommend
The Hazara people are patriotic and anti Pakistan slogans are not raised. It is the failure of the state drivers ( The Government ) to give security and the slogans are chanted against them. Such misleading media reports make false perception against the peace lover and patriotic Hazara people.
It must be noted that the Hazara community are not, were not and will not be against Pakistan as a country or against Pakistani people. In fact they have been the most patriotic community in Pakistan’s history. It was their general (General Mohammad Musa Khan Hazara) that defeated the enemy of Pakistan in 1965 war. Once again in Kargill 1999 it was their sacrifices that pushed back the enemy from Pakistani territories. They have given many sacrifices for this land but unfortunately now that they need help no one in the Pakistani community or the Pakistani authorities is paying attention to their cry for help against genocide at the hands of Wahhabi terrorists. Therefore it is important for all the educated Pakistani patriots to join hands in doing something to stop this ongoing genocide at the hands of a bunch of brain washed terrorists.
