Balochistan: A large number of Baloch tribal elders and political activists greeted the protest march of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons in Surab yesterday as they visited the grave of Jalil Reki Baloch.
The participants of the march have reached to Anjeera last night and will be walking towards Khuzdar today.
Talking to media person the vice chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, Qadeer Baloch said that many people were bothered by the popularity of the long march and they have started to pressurise families of the participants, adding that: “houses of several people have been raided for supporting the long march.”
He vowed that the march will continue till the final destination. “Those who thought we will get tired in a day or two should know that blood is gashing from feet our sisters and daughters but they are determined to continue the march at all costs,” said Qadeer Baloch.
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons Secretary General Banuk Farzana Majeed Baloch strongly condemned the print and electric media for ignoring the march. She said there are women and children participating in the peaceful protest march but media is completely turning a blind eye which shows media’s unfair attitude against Baloch people.
She further said: “The media should tell us what our fault is and why they are ignoring our march for the recovery of our loved ones. We have been marching for past eight days but the media is completely silent and by ignoring our peaceful and democratic protest the media is pushing us against the wall.”
The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons leaders have urged the Baloch youth and Baloch writers to highlight the ‘VBMP Long March’ as much as they can to let the international community know about this historical peaceful march and urge the international media to give coverage to the plight of enforced-disappeared activists in Balochistan.
