In September 2002, the political worker, Scholar and other hazara tribesmen worked together to form a political platform for the Hazaras of Pakistan which will serve the nation for their rights and justice. After meeting with different political worker and tribesmen on July 1, 2003 they announced a national and political Party with the name of Hazara Democratic Party " هزاره ڈیموکریٹک پارٹی"  (HDP).
There are about 600,000 Hazaras in Balochistan, based in Quetta, Khuzdar, Zhob, Loralia and Dera Murad Jamali. Before the HDP's formation, Hazara people did not have a formal political entity and didn't have much share in provincial or national politics. But Hazara democratic Party is trying to orient the community into becoming aware of the region's politics and to protect their interests. Hazara Democratic Party also has a women's wing consisting of nine units. HDP encourage female participation on all levels of sociopolitical life. HDP is a liberal and democratic party and firmly believe in equal opportunities for women in national life.
Hussain Ali Yousafi who was elected as a Chairman of the Hazara Democratic Party on 26 September 2008 was shot dead by the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Deobandi extremist group in the Pakistani city of Quetta on 26 January 2009. The death of Hussain Ali Yousafi was shocking not only for Hazaras but also for Pakistan and was condemned worldwide. This was considering a great loss for Hazaras throughout the world after the murder of Abdul Ali Mazari, who was killed by Taliban in Afghanistan in 1995. Hussain Ali Yousafi was working for peace and humanity in his social and political time period of thirty years. Which lead to a worldwide protest against the assassination of Hussain Ali Yousofi and other assassinations of Hazaras.
