Afghan Students Protest in Tehran

Afghan Students Protest in Tehran Against ‘genocide’ of Hazaras

Following the worldwide protests condemning deadly attacks against Hazaras, Afghan students held a protest in Tehran, the capital city of Iran. These students held the protest rally on Tuesday, October 26, at Ahlul Bayt International University.

The protesters condemned the “genocide” of the Hazaras in Afghanistan and asked the international community to stop this “crime” and recognize “the genocide against Hazaras” in Afghanistan, one of the students told Kabul Now.

The deadly suicide attack on the Kaaj Educational Centre was followed by big protest rallies in more than 100 cities across the globe. Most of the victims of the attack are Hazara teenage girls who were taking a practice test at the educational center when they were attacked.

In addition to protest rallies, activists and social media users launched the hashtag campaign #StopHazaraGenocide on social media.

The hashtag campaign sparked a global uproar against the targeted killings of the Hazaras in Afghanistan.

As yet, the hashtag has been used more than 13 million times only on Twitter and still continues to garner support across different countries.
