Occupied Balochistan: Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) Chairman Nasurrallah Baloch has said that his and other members of VBMP’s lives are in danger thus he has sent a letter to the Supreme Court registrar and the United Nations. He informed the SC and UN if any harm is caused to him or other members of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, the secret agencies of Pakistani should be held responsible.
Addressing a press conference at the VBMP’s token hunger-strike camp outside Quetta Press Club that entered 907 days on Tuesday, he alleged that the Tehrik Nefaz Aman (TNA), a shadow group, had hurled death threat to him and other members. He was flanked by Abdul Qadeer Baloch, the Vice Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons; they said VBMP was an impartial group and struggling for securing the release of missing people. “The TNA has already claimed responsibility for throwing several bullet-riddled and tortured bodies of Baloch political activists,” Nasrullah Baloch said and added that the same elements had been warning against hunger-strike camp.
They said Baloch women came from far-flung areas of Balochistan to record their statements so that their beloveds could be recovered but they were being terrorised by secret agencies. The VBMP said the proxy group had the full backing of state’s military, FC and other security agencies. They said even though in Baloch society women hardly step out of their houses but Pakistan military’s accesses in Balochistan forced the Baloch mothers, sisters, daughters to come out to streets and protest for the recovery of their loved one who have either been killed or still being detained by the state.
The VBMP Chairman said that several people were killed and their tortured dead bodies were thrown away who had dared to get registered FIR of their missing beloveds. Responding to a question, Baloch said that over 500 families of missing persons came from all over Balochistan and recorded their statements before the United Nations team.
“The UN group assured us of sharing their report with the Ministry of Interior. We hope that they will make an impartial report and bring the real facts to the world,” he said and adding that we would not end token hunger strike camp until the last missing person is recovered.
The VBMP leaders said after threats from the Tahreek-e Nifaaz-e-Aman, “We have written letters to the Supreme Court and the UN and informed them that we are receiving life threats.” They said if the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances issues their report through Pakistani ministries, then the VBMP will have objections. However we hope the WGEID will compile and publish a fact-based report reflecting the ground realities.
