Compensate Killed in Quetta... By Col.(r) Riaz

20 February, 2013

Government has been announcing monetary compensation for the dead and injured in all previous bomb blasts but is surprisingly quiet in the case of the Hazaras of Quetta. Though no amount of money shall really compensate the irreparable loss suffered by the widows and children of the Shaheeds, yet they in their this hour of calamity when they have not only lost their bread earners but also the businesses, shops and property in the bomb blast, need every penny and every ounce of sympathy from the govt. as well as the nation.

I would, therefore, urge the government to announce immediately a minimum of Rs 25 lacs for each Shaheed and Rs. 10 to 15 lacs for the injured. Immediate survey of the loss of business and property be done and the families duly compensated at the earliest. The philanthropists and the business tycoons are requested to donate generously in a govt. fund or a Trust especially created for this purpose to provide some relief to the miserable unfortunate families at the earliest.

Dont take ethinicity into account here,,,,,,because history repeats itselt Hazras are not innocent, neither taliban or jhangvis are innocent . Nor i endorse the barbaric acts of hazras and others,,,,For your information back in 1988 harzras do genocide of other sectratian people,,,,,, who compensated them no one.................... Need for hour is to address hazras to stop using bad ideology about sahaba and to other sect to give them space for living...............I recommend no compensation not a single peny. All money should be spent on educating people and promoting tolerance removing controversial matters in hazra sec (ahle tashee) books and matter is over.
