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.
Occupied Balochistan: The Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), Nasrullah Baloch, has rejected the claims of Pakistani Judicial Commission which was set up a year ago to trace abducted persons.
“The Judicial Investigation Commission was set up one year ago but during this period it did not visit Balochistan. They are only getting incentives in the name of abducted persons. The team headed by retired Justice Javid Iqbal is not a Judicial Commission in fact it is an inquiry committee; their work has been very disappointing.” Mr Nasrullah Baloch expressed these views during a press conference at the protest camp of the relatives of abducted Baloch outside Quetta Press Club. He was accompanied by Vice Chairman of VMBP, Mr Qadeer Baloch, and relatives of enforced-disappeared Baloch activists.
QUETTA: The Voice for Balochistan Missing Persons (VBMP), an non-government organisation striving for the safe recovery of missing persons, has said that the relatives of missing persons have pinned all their hope on the Chief Justice of Pakistan for the return of their loved ones, some of who have been missing for years.
Addressing a news conference at a hunger strike camp set up by the relatives of missing persons outside the Quetta Press Club here on Friday, Chairman VBMP Nasurllah Baloch announced that a seminar would be held on the violation of human rights in Balochistan on May 20 at Quetta Press Club.
ISLAMABAD, May 10: “On Monday, Karachi’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) arrested three of our missing boys – Saifullah Bugti, Shams Bugti and Abdul Ghaffar Bugti – and wrongfully accused them of membership in the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and criminal activities.
The CID accusation is a complete and utter fabrication,” says Abdul Qadeer Rekhi Baloch, the Vice Chairman of the Voice of Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), in front of the National Press Club in Islamabad on Thursday.
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) has termed media show of three people, alleged as activists of Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), by CID as a drama.
Occupied Balochistan:Talking to media VBMP Chairman, Nasrullah Baloch, said that the three people presented by Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on media were missing students of Balochistan University. “The men namely Abdul Ghaffar Bugti S/O Abdul Jabbar Bugti, Shams-ul-din S/O Lal Bux Bugti, and Saifal S/O Ahmdan Bugti were abducted on 18 January 2012 from Quetta, Balochistan.”
The spokesman further said that the relatives of the three had earlier filed a petition in Balochistan High Court adding that their names were also present in the list of the names of missing persons submitted in the court.
