The other part of the Hazaras that remained in Afghanistan fled the cities and escaped to the mountains of the central highlands of Afghanistan that is known today as Hazarajat or Hazaristan
Up to now, hundreds of Hazaras who have been traveling from Kabul and other parts of Afghanistan to Hazaristan
have been killed by the Taliban.
The Hazaras of Afghanistan The Hazara people, one of the largest ethnic groups, live mostly in the countryside of the central highlands of Afghanistan, which are called Hazaristan or Hazarajat.
And when they got control of Hazaristan, they killed a large number of the Hazara people in Mazar-e-Sharif, Bamiyan, and in other parts of Hazaristan.
Not-allowing Uzbek, Turkmen and Baloch people to educate in their own languages; burning Turkic books; destroying ancient Buddha sculptures of Bamiyan, Hazaristan
; banning of Navruz celebration that does not belong to Afghan culture; and changing the name of cities, districts and villages are other examples.
Stream of Deer reflects the voice of a freely-speaking poet from Hazaristan
(Afghanistan), Kamran Mir Hazar.
The anthology begins with the absorbing piece named MY NAME IS FATIMA OF HAZARISTAN
, penned by Etnairis Ribera from Puerto Rico.
The cover features a representation of the flag of Hazaristan
and an image of the ancient Buddha sculpture of Bamiyan, a principal symbol of Hazara history and culture.
