    We want stable peace for Hazaras living in Quetta ; Protesters slogan at Kabul


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Afghan iReporter IqbalMustan captured these powerful images of ethnic Hazaras protesting in the Afghan capital, Kabul, over the recent deadly bomb attacks in Quetta, Pakistan. "There were hundreds of protesters who participated in Kabul," he said. "They demanded stable peace which is everyone's right and right for the Shia and Hazaras living in Quetta, Pakistan." The Hazaras, an ethnic group predominantly based in western Pakistan and central Afghanistan, are thought to have been targeted because they are members of the Shia branch of Islam in the two majority Sunni nations. "When I heard of that deadly blast, I just broke," he said. "I was asking myself -- is anyone on the globe listening to us?"
