International human rights bodies urged to take immediate action to stop state atrocities against the Baloch people: BHRO


Occupied Balochistan: Baloch Human Rights Organization (BHRO) organized a protest demonstration in front of Quetta Press Club, against the batten charge and firing on 27 March protest rally, non-recovery of Baloch missing persons and other human rights issues facing the Baloch nation.

It is worth mentioning here that on 27 March 2013, Pakistani security forces attacked and batten charged Baloch National Front (BNF) rally, near Sariyab Police station due to which several Baloch activist were injured most of them were woman and children. The rally was organized against Pakistan occupation of Balochistan on 27 March 1948.

Participants of the peaceful protest rally were carrying placards and banners stating their demands. Attack on the 27 March peaceful rally in which several woman and children were injured is a proof that Pakistani state does not allow Baloch people to express political dissent peacefully.

BHRO stated that on 8th January from Arbab Karam Khan Road, Quetta, three Baloch youths Jalil s/o Mir Mansoor, Sanaullah and Naseer were forcefully disappeared by state security agency personnel, and to date their whereabouts are not known. One of the abductees is a 14 year old boy, student of 9th grade; another is a social worker, while the third abductee is a driver by profession. Despite protests no action has been taken by the authorities so far, which is condemnable.

Regardless of appalling human rights situation in Balochistan the international human rights bodies and the UN are still silent. We urge the international community and human rights organizations to take immediate action to stop state atrocities against the Baloch people.
