Subject: Revenge mass executions by Iranian regime in Balochistan
Dear Secretary General,
We would like to draw your kind attention towards the barbaric treatment of the Baloch political and social activists by the Iranian authorities in the province of Sistan o Balochistan.
Last month, it has been widely reported by international media that Sixteen Baloch political activists have been hanged in Iran in retaliation for the deaths of at least 14 border guards in an ambush. The Iranian authorities have been quoted to proudly boasting that any resistance towards the oppressive measures of its security forces in Balochistan would be retaliated and revenged by immediately executing the Baloch political prisoners held in various jails in Iranian held Balochistan. This inhuman act of disproportionate measure is the continuation of Iranian policy of crushing the peaceful Baloch national resistance movement in Iran.
Baloch are facing the cruelest state oppression in the contemporary history. Cultural, social, historical, economic and political marginalization by the religious fanatical state of Iran is the hallmark of the subjugation of the Baloch. The state controlled by a fanatical group of Ayatollahs has been reacting to the genuine Baloch demands for cultural, economic and political emancipation with the use of crude military prowess. Kidnappings, torture, solitary confinement and extra judicial killings of the Baloch by the state intelligence agencies are the usual ways adopted and have been graphically reported by various international human rights organizations affiliated with the United Nations.
Your Excellency, The irony is that the UN and international community are watching silently the violation of human rights and annihilation of an entire people by the Iranian state. The silence of the UN and international community cannot be justified in the name of the principle of state sovereignty.
Your Excellency, The situation in Iranian held Balochistan is alarming. We believe that we are justified in asking for the immediate intervention of the UN in order to pressurize the fanatical state for an immediate end to genocide and barbaric acts being committed on the Baloch.
We believed that this act of medieval mind-set should not go with impunity in a world of 21st century. The Baloch Human Rights Council (UK) therefore requests your immediate intervention. We request that this petition be taken as an urgent humanitarian appeal. Your immediate intervention could save not only countless innocent lives but could also prevent the present situation from developing into a total genocide of the defense less Baloch people. We will be grateful if the UN could establish an international commission to investigate the heinous crimes against humanity being committed by the Iranians in Balochistan.
Yours sincerelySamad Baloch General Secretary Baloch Human Rights Council (UK)
