Occupied Balochistan: The relatives, mostly women, of abducted Baloch activists have strongly condemned the threats to the leaders and member of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons. Terming such intimidating acts as cowardice the families of enforced-disappeared Baloch have vowed to continue the struggle for release of their loved ones.
Addressing a press conference at their token hunger strike camp outside Quetta Press Club, the Baloch women said, “Some narrow-minded people and stooges of establishment want to impose obsolete traditions on Baloch society, portraying them as Baloch culture. It is not Baloch culture and imposition of artificial rubrics will not be accepted at any cost.” They asked how Nifaz-e-Aman could talk about Baloch women when they themselves were involved in violations of rights of women. “These are tactics of occupying forces. Those who talk about the honour of women have forgotten the humiliation of around 200 Baloch women at the hand of occupying forces. Why is Nafiz-e-Aman silent on state atrocities against Baloch women?”
