  2. Mob justice if not controlled can always get out of hand.

    Recent news about Afg election is that the strongest candidate opposing Karzai has withdrawn his candidacy. Mr. Gul Agha Sherazi has withdrawn his candidacy in favour of Karzai; this will not bode well for the poor masses for Afghanistan and especially Hazaras.

    Karzai’s relection would mean a continutation biased policies in Hazaristan.

    I hope the Wahdat-Jubush alliance can really feel a strong candidate who can win this time around. Also if they can reign in the Tajiks it will be a revolution for the poor!

  3. agar in roz pass sare koche ha nayaram bache hazara nestam in roz ra porsan me konam

    ta ki bale watan atish jang hast
    harja basham begam shish tonmo nang hast
