Silence on a crime is tantamount to complicity

By Guhram Sindhi

If you are neutral in the situation of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor– Deshmond Tutu


War-torn countries are always big mass burial grounds whether it’s Stailn’s Soviet Union or occupied Kurdistan. Few days before three mass graves were found in Tootak area of Khuzdar in Balochistan. More than a hundred mutilated and decomposed bodies of men and women were found. Pakistan army has abducted more than 18000 Baloch from occupied Balochistan and murdered over 1000 of them in military concentrations camps.

Pakistan also committed crimes against the Bengali nation during their war of national liberation of Bangladesh. Pakistani army carried out “selective genocide” in Bangladesh. Mass graves still exists in Bangladesh where students, intellectuals, workers, peasants anyone suspected of opposing the Pakistani establishment were murdered. This kind of mass graves also exists in occupied Balochistan. Pakistani army and their death squads murder students, teachers, journalists, intellectuals and writers which a systematic effort to eliminate the intellectual and educated class of Baloch society.

Pakistan military’s local death squads, religious fundamentalists Organisations Al-Badar and Al-Shams killed Bengali intellectuals during Bengali peoples’ war of national liberation in their policy of “selective genocide” on the instructions of Pakistani army like-wise in occupied Balochistan students, activists, journalists, intellectuals and writers are being killed by Pakistani army and their outfits like Haq-na-Tawar headed by Shafiq Mengal.

Mama Qadeer Baloch (Nelson Mandela of Balochistan) is vice chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing persons. He is struggling consistently and undauntedly against the enforced disappearances of Baloch nation. Jaleel Reki was the son of Mama Qadeer Baloch, he was political activist, he used to say to Mama I’m struggling for my land and my people I’m not selling heroin or doing anything immoral, I’m struggling for my birth-right.

Jaleel was abducted by Pakistani army and his badly mutilated with bullet wounds in his heart was later found. Mama is leading one of the longest foot march in South Asia against enforced disappearances. They have walked for 75 and still continue to walk. They have covered more than 1700 Kilometres from Quetta to Islamabad so far.

Recently rogue state Pakistan had legalized enforced disappearances and killings under Pakistan Protection Ordinance (PPO). Such laws are made to carry out selective genocide of Baloch and other oppressed nation such the Sindhis. We the Sindhi nation as brothers, neighbors and fellow struggler condemn such inhumane acts of Pakistani army against Baloch nation.

UN, EU, and the USA should pay attention to such crimes against humanity that Pakistan army is committing in Balochistan otherwise they are also on the side of the oppressor and equally responsible for the human rights violations.
