Abstract

For the Hazaras, a small ethnic community in the south-west of Pakistan, politics begins with and from the dead. In February 2013, following a bomb attack in a busy market square that killed scores of Hazaras, family members of the deceased refused to bury their dead. In this long-read, Zainab Najeeb argues how an understanding of the body, martyrdom and a marginalised identity can help us understand that unique act of resistance in 2013.
