MAPPING SECTARIAN KILLINGS IN PAKISTAN

DATA

The data was collected from Dawn Newspaper's online archive on a monthly basis starting from 2002 to the present. The keywords used for selecting relevant articles from the newspaper each year were 'Sectarianism', 'Sectarian', 'Shia', 'Imambargah', 'Jhangvi', 'Sipah', 'ASWJ' and 'Quetta Hazara Deaths'. The newspaper articles, after careful review, were tabulated in an Excel spreadsheet. However, it is important to mention that these figures might be underestimated because the newspaper only reports the first count of deaths and injuries after an attack, subsequent final count of the dead and injured are not available.
