A sister’s quest for missing brother

Baloch Missing Persons families arrived at Rawalpindi’s Railway Station at 4am on Tuesday (Apr 05, 2011), they were whisked away by the men of intelligence agencies. They were taken to a safe house in Islamabad.
“They asked us why we have come to the capital and searched all the baggage. Some of the officials kept yelling, telling us to go back to Quetta.”

ISLAMABAD, April 8: On April 22 Farzana Majeed’s brother she had not seen almost for the last two years would turn 28 as the quest for the missing sibling brings her to Islamabad.

Zakir Majeed went missing from Mastung in June 2009. After desperately looking for the brother in the native town, holding a protest camp in Quetta and a three-month campaign in Karachi, Farzana has come to Islamabad along with 22 other Baloch men, women and children to appear before the Supreme Court on April 13 in the missing persons case.

Encamped outside the National Press Club in Islamabad under the platform of ‘Voice for the Baloch Missing Persons,’ they say around 8,000 people have gone missing from Balochistan in the last five years. However, the Voice has list of 1,300 persons who have not returned home.

“My parents are too old and weak to come and sit in the protest camp,” Farzana told Dawn. But the family back home is hopeful of “receiving happy news about Zakir,” she said. Her expectations of getting justice from the SC are high.

As Farzana and 22 others arrived at Rawalpindi’s Railway Station at 4am on Tuesday, they were whisked away by the men of intelligence agencies. They were taken to a safe house in Islamabad.

“They asked us why we have come to the capital and searched all the baggage,” said Nasrullah Baloch. “Some of the officials kept yelling, telling us to go back to Quetta.”

An old man, who did not want to give his name, termed the attitude of intelligence officials derogatory, adding that they searched the bags of women. But he was also thankful for small mercies. “Nobody was beaten up and they did not claim charges for bringing us from Rawalpindi to Islamabad,” he said.

When contacted the Islamabad police officials denied any role in detaining the Baloch activists for few hours.

The relatives asked the government to ‘announce’ the arrests of the missing persons and file charges against them in courts.

“Zakir was a senior office bearer of Baloch Students Organisation Azaad,” Farzana said. “But what`s wrong in that? Arrested earlier, he was cleared of all charges by court.” She said nobody ever told the court that being a member of a social or political group would make one “eligible to be picked by security agencies”.

Highlighting the agony of family of Zarina Marri, who went missing from Kholu in 2006, Nasrullah said: “In a tribal society, they are facing social pressure and embarrassment because their woman has been kidnapped.”

The interior minister on Thursday told Senate that some ‘imposters’, not Frontier Constabulary (FC), were involved in the kidnappings in Balochistan.

But the family members of the missing persons rejected his claim. “My brother was forced into a van in front of his wife and son when they were coming out of a hospital in Karachi in December 2009,” said Ruksana Baloch, a resident of Kalat.

She said her brother Abdul Ghaffar Langho, father of five daughters and a son, was a farmer and went to Karachi for treatment of his wife.

As the case of the missing persons proceeds in the SC, the family members fear that more bodies would turn up in parts of Balochistan in the days to come. The sister of Sameer Abdul Kareem, who went missing along with his four friends in October last year, said the body of Yasir Baloch with marks of torture was recently recovered.

The Voice of Baloch Missing Persons has announced to hold a protest rally form the Press Club to the Supreme Court building today (Saturday).

    As you sow so shall you reap.WE HEARD THAT HINDUS(DERA BUGHTI)/SIKS AND outsiders(muhajir and great indian origined) were killed,threaned and injured like sudars in balochon ki sarzamin and our repoters emegeged that they were not glad among them with dignity.nationalists are those who lacks moderanization and competition among human as they lack something which can make them leader of nations if present. is it justice that for sake of shanakth ‘PUKTOONISTAN” AS DOMINANCY RULE but pagri,lungi or panjabi language are national symbols of pakistan like urdu national language? excesses.why not gharat aur shanakth for flood victoms,drone atached and shaheed (by suicide attackers ) why sitting in assemblies,priviliges by pakistan and by american aids.is it shanakt by pacha khan/gharatmandi or not begharati as no rescuu efforts for flood victoms and all other calamaties victoms.looto aur bantoo pakistani aur amrici mal aur bun gao gharatmand koomparast.in karachi chanakt aur asley bazey aur in paktoono ki sarzamin gharat mandi like khans of india (sisters are wives of hindus and they r husbands of sharimatis) and only shanakt of pukhtoon by merely khans names.then why qoom parasti in khanabadooshi styles when puktoon sarzamin is full of wealth? no kalabagh dam as every dam kills environment but welcome floods(historical) as if there were dams situation will be reverse and settlements in karachi,sindh and punjab with shanakth which will prove khans shanakth as even in karachi new elite generation does not know their language,cuture and traditions(as i am yousafzai/zai/afridi pathan but now karachiate/hindustani)like KHANS but initially so much shanakht so this ill-fated land becomes afghanistan(afghan ka sarzamin only but i reserve the right in pakistan and hindustan historically despite nobody has the right like that in my sarzamini afghan/balochistan)this is qoom parasti pachar.Why not qoom parasti shanakt fot hidustani or siks as all our home land segregated/snatched in th name of beloved bhaya punjab and sindh,bolan and n.w.f.p.its attoot ang for us like hong kong and taiwan for china.history mutifurcated our mata land and religion thats why attot ang also hindumat qoom parasti will prevail as history reveals like plus minus added in fate with time.our ghandi gi and company said that segregated country/ies is angry child which will soon come in our land and of course every one will be in shanti under great hindu dhram (qoom parasti showed the world as we are in near future super power of world)every will be in shanti and peacefull livlihood like khans/pathans/afghans or others have with mandirs in their homes.thats only way of emuncipiation from your pat parast,selfish and biased qoom parasti under the banner of great ghandi teachings(not pathan/afghan/pacha ji failed talbaniatized qoomparast talemats) as now we see that balochs are only balochs like pathans not muslims first.but in our great dharam will be first only insaans(world has acknowledged)thats why we shed some bones to our friend like persons and dictate for our future grat plannings in secret so that without food,water,electric and structure, child will come in our lap soon proving prithvigee success.our mata has rights in which furnandis, sardarjees(manmohan and future world bank president,wise man,insaniaat parast groomjeet singh) will prevails.our sings are wisest and technical,world knows and there are balochi and saraiki(like balochi qoomparasti) leaders leading our other part of nation that why p. musharuff collects 15 crores for sindh flood victoms on tv compain but sindhi zardari is not given eeven 15 lacs in govt. funds.international aiders set their supervision even hillary pointed corruption in sindi and pukhtoon aids by qoomparasts.thats we say we are entire shelter for balochi,sindhi and others under our qoomparasti world witnessed positively.so bharamdag and bashir jan balor are our friend as we care for pure human rights under ghandi gee talemat not pacha jee encroaching,tussling and bay gharat talemats.lets jay ho bharat mata ki.ao mal kar bharat ko power banain,paratna karo kay bharat mata juld khooshhal ho jai. thats why our religion gave solid,unbeatable teachings so Ghandis(BRILIANT EXAMPLES) are also present in sarhad-maqbooza hid part of pakistan.OUR GHANDIS,SARDAR JEE(FATHER OF SUPER NATION- MANMOHAN & GHOORAMJEET SINGS) TEACHINGS ARE NOW EXPORTABLE ITEMS FOR US IN THIS CIVILIZED WORLD AS WE ARE ONLY HAVING ENLIGHTNED MODERATION.BAGWAN SE PARATNAY HAI AUR THEI KI PACHA KHAN BE HAMERE TALAMAT KA IS ZOOR SE PARCHR KHARTEY TO HUM BOHAT JALD SUPER POER BUN JATAY.NOW HIS SUCCESSORS MUST DO THIS ANS START THESE FROM THEIR OWN HOMES AS IN OUR LAND ONLY BHARAT MATA QOOM PARASTI IS ACCEPTABLE LIKE IN IRANE.SO THAT THEY CAN PREVENT MISHAP LIKE WITH TALABANS AND BALOCHS IN OCCUPIED/ATOOT ANG PART OF OUR LAND.WHEN INTERMINGLED,THIS MUSNT HAPPENED LIKE IRANE(FUTURE DEMAND THAT) ALSO THIS FOR BALOCHIES.THERE MUST BE GHANDIS IN BALOCH OCCUPIED LAND?
