While Pakistani and international media pays attention to Shia Hazara victims of the ASWJ-LeJ terrorists, the plight of non-Hazara Shia remains ignored.
Media and rights groups hide the fact that statistically a non-Hazara Shia is more like to be killed than a Hazara Shia in Balochistan. Many non-Hazara Shia face double jeopardy in Balochistan because they are Shia and settlers. BLA and LeJ gladly kill them. Non-Hazara Shia of Balochistan lack the larger community support, political network and media coverage available to Hazara Shias. Non-Hazara Shias of Balochistan are equally ignored by Shia groups (eg MWM, SUC – despite the fact that Allama Maqsood Dhomki who currently heads MWM Balochistan is himself a Baloch Shia) as well as by Hazara ethnic groups e.g., HDP etc. This is a classic case of double jeopardy.
Here is an incomplete list of non-Hazara Shia victims of the ASWJ (Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, also known as Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi) terrorists, killed in Quetta and vicinity in last few years.
Non-Hazara Shias are diverse and a very small community; don’t ignore them. Their dead too deserve to be acknowledged and remembered.
600/500,000 and 300/20,000 is the answer to the question whether it is Hazaras genocide in Quetta or Shia genocide in Quetta. Of the 900+ Shias killed, 600+ are Shia Hazara, their population is estimated to be 500,000. At the same time over 300 people killed were non-Hazara Shias. Their maximum population is estimated to be 20,000 only. Death ratio (due to target killing) in non-Hazara Shias of Quetta is 1.5 per cent whereas the same ratio in Hazara Shias is about 0.15 per cent. Apologies for this statistical comparison but the aim is to empirically demonstrate that Shias of all ethnic backgrounds are being killed by ASWJ-Taliban terrorists.
The Shia Muslims of Balochistan, especially those in Quetta, have been under the attack of state-trained-and-sponsored Lashkar-e-Jhangvi/Sipah-e-Sahaba/Taliban terrorists. While on the one hand, the Shias have been mercilessly massacred by the brainwashed footsoldiers of the Saudi-ISI Jihad Complex, on the other hand, there has been a vicious propaganda by establishment friendly individuals (e.g., Ejaz Haider, Abdul Khaliq Hazara, some human rights activists) to misrepresent the Shia genocide in Balochistan as an ethnic issue, in which only the Hazaras of Quetta are being targeted.
This post does not intend to create any distinctions of differences among the martyrs of Balochistan, but only to prove that the ISI/Media propaganda about the ethnic reasons for this pogrom is a blatant lie. The malicious intentions behind this propaganda have been exposed previously, but it was necessary to provide a list of names of the non-Hazara Shia martyrs to support what had previously been argued.
Presented below is an incomplete list of 130+ non-Hazara Shia martyrs of Balochistan (mostly Quetta). The actual figure (300+) is certainly more than this, but the following were ones whose names as well as details could be retrieved and are therefore being presented. It may also be mentioned that non-Hazara Shias make up at least 30% of all Shias martyred in Balochistan.
The list includes martyrs from Urdu-speaking, Punjabi, Saraiki, Pashtun, Baloch and Brahvi ethnicities, who were killed not because they belonged to any specific ethnic group, but only because they were Shia. This also proves that the Hazaras of Quetta too are targeted by the terrorist ISI-proxies only because they are Shia, and relatively more martyrs belong to the Hazara ethnic group because they make up the majority of the Shia population in Balochistan (especially Quetta).
List of Shia martyrs of Balochistan (mainly Quetta):
- Syed Abid Abbas Naqvi: August 2001: He was an engineer in the Comm. & Works Dept.

Haji Mukhtar lost not 1 son, 2 sons, 3 sons but four adult sons, losing his own life at the hands of ASWJ-LeJ. No family can parallel their loss yet their painful tragedy gets obfuscated by the misleading slogan of Hazara killing. Anyone intrested in chronicling #ShiaGenocide in Balochistan will have to start with the tragedy of Haji Mukhar family. Follwed by that of A. Khaliq Banglzai,a shia convert,whose dead body was not allowed to be buried according to Islamic rituals

Before Prof Dr Mumtaz’s murder Hzara Democratic Party activists were harrassing them in the Hazara area because theirs was a religious family. Shaheed Dr Mumtaz family moved to Karachi after paying ransom for his dead body which #ISIcriminals dumped for them. Dr Mumtaz’s family is now in Karachi, hopefully one day they will join twitter to tell their story.
