Afghans hold rallies in various cities to condemn Kaaj attack

Afghanistan citizens’ rally in Strasbourg, France.

Many Afghanistan citizens held protests in different cities of the world to condemn the attack on the Kaaj institute in Kabul, calling for an end to attacks on Hazara communities in the country.

The rallies were held in Paris and Strasbourg in France, as well as in Australia, Turkey, New Zealand, and other parts of the world.

They condemned the attack on Kaaj institute and chanted “stop Hazara genocide,” a campaign that has gained momentum on Twitter over the past week.

The attack on the Kaaj tutoring center in the west of Kabul on Sep. 30 left at least 53 people dead and over 100 others wounded, most of them young female students.

“We are here with many others to protest the killing of Hazaras in Afghanistan that has continued for years,” Tahir Paiman, a resident of Strasbourg, France. “We are here to raise our voice against the ongoing situation in Afghanistan.”

“We are here to show solidarity with the families of the victims of the Kaaj attack,” said Fazila Ozhan, an Afghan citizen in France.

The StopHazaraGenocide campaign on Twitter surpassed one million tweets in less than three days and is supported by famous figures from around the world.
