Balochistan, a sovereign state, was occupied by Pakistan on 27th of March 1948; since that day, in order to silence the voices for liberation and to instill fear among the general populace, Pakistan has employed a strategy of enforcedly disappearing people belonging to different age groups and occupations, of which only a small number has been documented in the list attached. The first people who were enforcedly disappeared were the friends and peers of Prince Abdul Karim, who were abducted in 1948, of which few were released and others are still missing, most probably murdered under custody.
Several Baloch youth have been abducted from different areas of Balochistan in past few days, as the Supreme Court has commented that the security agencies were not implementing the orders of the Court.
According to details reports Pakistani security forces attacked a Masque (Masjid) in Sui, Balochistan when people were engaged in reading their prayers (Taraweeh). The Imam (scholar) of the Masjid, Mulavi Mohammad Bakhsh Bugti, has reportedly been hospitalised after he was badly beaten by the Pakistani security personnel. The son of the Imam, Mohammad Siddiq Bugti, was taken away and is still being held at some undisclosed location. Abdul Nabi Bugti, another son of the Imam is already in the custody of Pakistani forces.
Two other people were abducted from Quetta and Gawadar town of Balochistan. The victims have been named as Mohammad Hafeez from satellite area Quetta and Kamran from Gawadar, who has been abducted when he was on his way to a nearby Market for shopping.
