The twin attacks in Quetta, he says, specifically targeted the local minority Shia (or Hazara) community.
The worst attack occurred after nightfall on Thursday at a snooker club in Quetta in an area frequented by Hazara Shia Muslims.
Qais is an Afghan of mixed ethnic heritage, self-described as “a Pashtun with Hazara eyes.”
For instance, he asserts that the Hazara women fight in their tribal battles side by side with their husbands.
This woman, with her children, were the family of a Hazara of wealth and position.
The Afghan force consisted largely of cavalry, as did that of the gallant Hazara chief, Yezdambaksh.
Nearly every well-to-do establishment in Afghan Turkistan has one or two Hazara slaves.
Accordingly, two columns were employed, the base of one being in the Peshawar valley, and that of the other in Hazara.
Expert native authorities have a very high opinion of the handiness of Hazara slave girls.
He was worshipped in Bunnu almost as much as in Hazara, was he not?
