A young student of 22 year has entered into 46 days of his hunger strike unto death today. His condition is very critical and there are fears of his slipping into coma as he faints most of the time. The government has completely ignored his hunger strike and forget providing medical help has not even bothered with monitoring his health. This has caused much resentment to the student community in Sindh and Balochistan.
Mr. Lateef Johar, a Baloch student, has gone on the hunger strike unto death to protest against the abduction of Zahid Baloch, Chairman Baloch Student Organization – Azad (BSO-A) on 18 March by the plain cloth persons claiming to be ISI operatives, the notorious intelligence agency. Since his abduction the provincial and the federal governments or the military has refused to acknowledge that Mr. Baloch is in their custody. Please see the Urgent Appeal that the AHRC issued on his abduction.
