QUETTA: The registered Anjuman Tajran Balochistan and Tandoor Association have jointly declared the temporary closure of tandoors starting today (Friday) until further notice. This announcement was made during a press conference at the Quetta Press Club on Thursday, led by Wali Afghan, the General Secretary of Anjuman Tajran Balochistan (Registered), along with Muhammad Naeem Khilji, Chairman of Tandoor Association, Haji Raza Khan Khalji, and Malik Wali.

The closure stems from the alleged targeting of Quetta’s Tandoor community since November 1, in response to the federal government’s decision to repatriate illegal immigrants. Approximately 300 ovens have been shut down.

Furthermore, the representatives highlighted the disparate treatment, pointing out that workers and contractors in coal mines in various districts, including Dikki, Harnai, and Quetta, were allowed to operate under a specified procedure.
