#BringBack31Hazaras, Being Hazara is not a crime

More than 40 days ago 31 Hazara passangers have been kidnapped from two vehicles on a highway in Zabul province while they were travelling from Kandahar to Kabul. Their families are living weeks of anguish waiting for their return. Everyone knows who is the responsible even if the government denied the Taliban involvement in the kidnapping, due to the “peace talks” with these criminals.f15565b4-325b-49ec-81a1-f418b69281e9

Speaking during his first visit to Washington, on 25th March President Ashraf Ghani said peace with the Taliban is essential and that he does not know how to say sorry to the members of Taliban who were imprisoned by mistake.

Since two weeks ago we have started a campaign with the hashtag #bringback31Hazaras.
To spread the voice and ask to the government to intervene we decided to create a sort of challenge: if you decide to publish a photo with the hash-tag, you can also challenge ten Facebook friends (or even less) to do the same. Senior government officials know where the kidnapped people are and they know also who are the responsible. The lack of interest is due to a political strategy intended on reintegrate Taliban members in the government.

For these reasons we address to them our imperative: “Bring Back the 31 Hazaras!”Basir Ahang
