Protesting Against Apartheid in Hazara Education

And a letter from Poets and Writers Worldwide to Nelson Mandela honoring his struggle for human rights and freedom

Thursday 10 October 2013, by Marjan Onabi

This presentation is about a Hazara students’ hunger strike, protesting discrimination at Kabul University, and the situation which occurs in all provinces where Hazara children suffer from a lack of education. They love to learn and they are so ambitious, but they lack even basic facilities, such as: teachers, classrooms, chairs, chalk boards, books, pens, and so on.

School for them is a tent pitched on the bare ground, and then only if they’re fortunate enough to have a teacher. And then they must walk two to three hours every day to reach that tent school.

Security is another huge issue, especially for girls. They face daily problems like: public harassment and insults, physical violence, attacks, and poisonings. These acts are attempts to stop them from receiving an education, but the students are strong and retain their thirst for knowledge.

Even in higher education and advanced academic fields, discrimination is a persistant problem, and maybe the greatest, that Hazara people suffer.
