Federal Religious Minister Khursheed Shah, who flew to Quetta at President Zardari's order, failed to persuade the QYC
leaders to end the sit-in and sought one-day time to respond to the demands of the Yakjehti Council.
Around two-hour long negotiations were held between the Governor Balochistan, and federal minister for Religious Affairs and members of QYC at Imambargah Punjabi at Alamdar road where hundreds of people belonging to Hazara community staged a sit-in against the killings of their near and dear ones.
The Federal Minister and Governor reached the Imambargah Punjabi along with three provincial ministers including Ali Madad Jatak, Tahir Mehmood Khan and Maulvi Muhammad Sarwar and held negotiations with the QYC leaders including Qayum Changezi and others persuading them to end their sit-in along with the coffins of the dead.
During the negotiations, the Federal Minister assured the QYC leaders that he would convey the anguish and reservations of the Hazara people to the Prime Minister regarding the prevailing situation, but they should end their protest and bury the dead.
