میں آج آپ محترمین کو اپنا نوحہ سنانے بلوچستان کے دور افتادہ علاقے نال خضدار سے آئی ہوں۔ میرے ہمراہ میرا یہ معصوم بچہ قمبر بھی ہے۔ میرے شوہر زاھد بلوچ کو آج سے تین مہینے پہ…لے کوئٹہ سے خفیہ اداروں کے اہلکاروں نے ایف سی کی مدد سے اغواء کیا جو تاحال لاپتہ ہیں ۔ ان تین مہینے کے دوران مجھ سمیت میرے دو بچے اور زاھد بلوچ کے ضعیف والد اور والدہ جس قرب سے گذر رہے ہیں وہ شاید میں لفظوں میں بیان نا کرسکوں، لیکن انصاف کے ہر در پر دستک دے کر مایوس لوٹنے کے بعد میری آخری امید و سہارا حق و سچ کے علمبردار آپ صحافی حضرات ہی ہیں ۔ آج آپ کے سامنے صرف اس امید سے پیش ہوئی ہوں کہ شاید آپ کے توسط سے میری فریاد کسی ایسے سماعت سے ٹکرائے جو مجھے اور میرے ان دو معصوم بچوں کو انصاف دلا سکے ۔

Karachi, Dec 30 : Hoping to get justice, these family members of missing persons in Balochistan are walking on foot to wake up the world about atrocities being committed by Pakistan. Initiated by the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons on October 27, 2013, they will travel over 1,374 miles from Quetta to Islamabad for the safe recovery of thousands of abducted Baloch from the custody of Pakistani military and secret agencies.
“I know the walk to Punjab is unsafe. There are no pockets of Baloch inhabitants who will open their houses to us or share their food. But if I come back dead from Punjab, I will think the purpose of my life has been fulfilled,” said Qadeer, who heads the Voice of Baloch Missing Person (VBMP), a group fighting for the rights of the missing Baloch youth.
