I am a student. Studying, writing, learning, exploring are my hobbies. But all this has become impossible for me, thanks to Pakistan. My friends disappear and end up dead dumped on empty street-sides with blood-curdling scars on their bodies. My schools and colleges are turned into cozy military barracks. Uniformed men with guns round the playgrounds where school kids would circle not so long ago. Libraries closed and librarians ‘missing’, they say.
Despite all this, I choose a difficult path of peaceful struggle rather than picking up a gun. I look at the world with hopeful eyes but in vain. Nobody seems to be caring. What should I do? Where should I go?
Geneva: Exiled Baloch leader and President of Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahamdagh Bugti has urged international human rights groups not to ignore the worsening situation in Balochistan, the Pakistan‘s largest province.
He said incidents of enforced disappearances, torture and killings in Balochistan are on the rise, as security forces have adopted a “pick, kill and dump” policy against educated youth and political activists in the region.
Speaking exclusively to ANI, Bugti said the Balochistan crisis is as significant as what was happening in Syria, Ukraine or what took place during the Arab Spring of the last two years.
