Reportedly Deputy Inspector General of Quetta Police Abdul Razzaq Cheema said the blast targeted the Hazara community of minority Shiite Muslims, and at least eight people from Hazara community were among the killed.

 


Moreover shortly after the attack, the Hazara community members including women and children staged a sit-in which continued on Saturday, demanding better security measures from the government. Apparently the protesters demand that the government implement an effective security plan and ensure protection of the community. Further the committee voiced serious concern over the Quetta blast and continued killings of members of the Hazara community.
