Pakistan may not be serious enough to end the enforced disappearances

The administration of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been keeping mum over the fate of missing persons in Balochistan. This has forced the families of the victims to cover more than 750 kilometers, all the way from Quetta to Karachi on foot to get their voices heard.

Leaving behind their loved ones, covering over 750km and braving cold weather in the rugged mountains and planes of Baluchistan, these victims families want to make their voices heard.

It’s been over five months that the administration of Prime Minister Nawz Sharif has been running the country and the arrival of these people all the way from Quetta sends a clear message that this administration may not be serious enough to end the enforced disappearances and other serious human rights violations.

Their only demand is the release of their loved ones whose fate they say is now in the hands of the law enforcement agencies and Sharif’s government.

In August, the International commission of justice has said that Pakistan’s failure to hold even a single perpetrator of enforced disappearances to account perpetuates the culture of impunity in the country.
