  Afghanistan: Massacres Of Hazaras - Background
Hazaras form a majority of the population in the central highland region of Afghanistan known as Hazarajat, and are a significant minority in the cities of Kabul and Mazar-i Sharif.
Most of Hazarajat, which had been governed by various factions of the Shia party Hizb-i Wahdat since 1989, fell to the Taliban in September 1998 after a crippling year-long blockade.
Some observers attributed this to an alliance that was forged with the Taliban by Hujjat-al-Islam Sayyid Mohammad Akbari, a Hizb-i Wahdat faction leader, shortly after the Taliban seized Bamiyan, the major city in Hazarajat and the capital of a district and province of the same name.

 FAO : $6 million project for one of the poorest regions in Afghanistan
The objective of the UK-funded FAO project is to reduce hunger and malnutrition in the region, improve farm production, generate income opportunities, and build up or strengthen institutions at community, district and provincial level, FAO said.
People in the Hazarajat depend almost exclusively on agriculture for their survival.
Their situation is very difficult, with limited access to education and very high illiteracy rates (up to 95 percent).

Their land is named Hazarajat, and is in Central Afghanistan, with the capital at Bamiyan.
I am a Hazara and (...) the Hazarajat or commonly known as Hazaristan does not have an official flag.

Coupled with severe drought, the results have been that rangelands have deteriorated, forests have been felled, and wildlife has been unsustainably hunted.
The first involves surveys and analyses to collect baseline data, identify threats, and design initiatives to alleviate those threats – subjects include wildlife, rangeland, livestock, forest cover, health, and socioeconomic factors.
Develop and enact Hazarajat protected area initiatives, including updating the Band-e-Amir National Park management plan and officially designating the Ajar Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.

 Background of Hazara Community
Hazarajat, the land of the Hazara, comprises the mountainous central areas of Afghanistan.
Hazarajat was opened up to Pashtun nomadism, and while highland pasture is not a scarce resource, the flocks coming through then arrow valleys cause destruction.
In Hazarajat the situation was particularly bad, due both to government priorities and the fact that poor people need their children's labor.

 Hazarajat at AllExperts
Hazarajat was believed to be governed by the king named Babar Shah, whose capital's ruin at Chel Burj still exists in the Yakawlang, Bamian region of northwestern Hazarajat.
Hazarajat never had true and specific borders, but wherever the Hazaras came in contact with the dwelling of non-Hazara tribes, i.e., at the ethnic gray line, those places where considered to the boundaries of Hazarajat.
Hazarajat has been known to be rich in minerals and in the past rulers of the neighboring countries and states have tried to subjugate the Hazaras to control the mineral reservoirs.

 The Talibans and the Hazaras
The rapid developments of the last few months left Hazarajat, with the pockets controlled by Ahmed Shah Masood in the northeast, alone in resisting the drive of the Taliban to conquer all of Afghanistan.
In a classic case of agriculturalist-pastoralist rivalry, the Kochis are remembered for terrorising the peasants (backed by the Pushtoon administration), for strong-arm tactics in petty trade and money-lending, and for forcibly acquiring land.
The Hazaras’; first and most significant acts in their autonomy project were to bar entry to the nomads, restore the arable land that they had bought or grabbed, and repeal the edicts of Abdur Rahman and Sardar Mohammed Daoud (president of Afghanistan, 1973-1978) granting the Kochis control of the rangelands.

 History of Hazara Community
Hazaras on the periphery of the Hazarajat as have been converted to other Shia sects or to the Sunni Muslim religion are not regarded by the twelvers as being properly Hazaras.
For the Hazarajat, the former locations of a number of tribes are shown on Survey of India maps, and these locations can sometimes be checked with other sources.
Much of the Hazarajat, however, is oriented toward the Helmand River and its tributaries, which flow in a long, sweep southwestward toward the Sistan border of Iran.

By partitioning Hazarajat the state also intended to deprive the region from international aid allocated for its development and also to minimize the number of Hazaras political representation (on the basis of majority of votes) in the Wulusi Jirga (the House of Parliament).
Hazarajat was divided into 36 civilian and eight military administrative units where civilian and military units were independent of each other.
Although the ruling class succeeded in incorporating Hazarajat into the Afghan state, falsifying their history and culture either directly or indirectly, Hazara nationalism remained a strong force to be reckoned with.

 Ismailis of Afghanistan - By Mumtaz Ali Tajjdin - Ismailis
But the Hazarajat is generally considered to cover the three central provinces of Afghanistan: Bamiyan, Orozgan and Ghur, and parts of Herat, Farah Kandahar, Ghazni, Parwan, Baghlan, Balkh and Badghis.
Hazarajat, which lies mostly to the west and northwest of Kabul, included Ghazni, Qallat-i Ghalzayi, and areas of Balkh, Andarab and the border region of Herat.
The north-eastern most boundary of Hazarajat lay at a Pass situated 20 km south of Mazar-i Sharif, continued southwards along the river of Dar Gaz past the forests of Boyna Qara, and onwards to Aq Kaprak, Qarah Kashan and Dandan Shikan Passes, where it joined the Shorkhab and Siah Khak.

 washingtonpost.com: Harvesting the Roots of a New Revolution
Rural Hazara women have borne a double burden, largely confined to fieldwork and child-rearing in a population that is already relegated to the lowest rung of Afghan society.
In some districts of Hazarajat, as the central highlands are informally known, the female literacy rate has traditionally been near zero, and more than 6 percent of pregnant women die during childbirth -- a level higher than in sub-Saharan Africa.
But Sabera Sakhi, who runs a small social welfare program in Bamian, the region's capital, is trying to promote several changes at once: the economic emancipation of Hazara women, the cultivation of crops no one has grown here before, and the benefits of vegetarian cuisine to a population that survives on starch.

 Desks and chairs: simple necessities bring dignity to Afghan students
In a region where literacy rates are low and poverty is taken for granted, a school desk and a chair are signs of dignity.
With its mountainous villages and striking vistas, Hazarajat is a stunning place, but it is plagued by the misfortunes often common to isolated regions: political instability, food shortages and poor schools.
Schools have had a particularly hard time of it: neglected during the Taliban era, Hazarajat's schools are rebuilding and rebounding slowly, which is why the community of Ghorband welcomed a June and July shipment of more than 1,000 school desks and chairs.

Although Hazarajat is still one of Afghanistan's poorest and most underdeveloped areas, it has several unique factors in its favor.
Unlike many other regions, there are no armed feuds between rival militia bosses and no attacks by revived Taliban forces to deter foreign aid projects and disrupt preparations for the presidential elections scheduled for Oct. 9.
But in interviews last week, Hazaras working in fields, shops and aid agency offices around Bamian said their primary concern was electing a national leader who would represent their interests as a religious and ethnic minority without provoking renewed bloodshed.

The Hazarajat consists of valleys, towering rugged mountains, cold winters, beautiful scenery, and raging rivers.
The majority of the Hazaras live in the Hazarajat region but due to war and segregation by the discriminative Afghan government, some of the Hazara people live in cities throughout Afghanistan making them the second largest Afghan ethnic group.
However due to the blood thirsty murderer, Abdur Rahman who was a servant to Britain who massacred more than 60% of the Hazara population in the 19th century, many Hazaras were forced to segregate to nearby countries and cities in Afghanistan.
