BALOCHISTAN: Speakers at a seminar on Saturday urged all political parties to raise their voice over human rights violations in Balochistan, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The seminar to highlight human rights issues was jointly organised by the Balochistan Human Rights Organisation (BHRO) and the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP).
Chief organiser of his own faction of the National Party Dr Hayee Baloch, VBMP chairman Nasarullah Baloch, BHRO chairperson Gul Bibi Baloch, Awami National Party leader Malik Ibrahim Kasi, NP leader Musa Baloch and Jamaat-i-Islami’s Molvi Hidayatullah spoke at the seminar.
They said it was a matter of concern that human rights were being violated in a democratic country. They asked all political and religious organisations to unite and pressure the rulers to give the downtrodden people their rights.
The speakers alleged that a conspiracy was being hatched to convert the Baloch majority into a minority by bringing in people from other provinces to Gwadar.
They said that hundreds of people were killed in the Quetta Civil Hospital, Police Training College and Shah Noorani incidents but the government did not resign.
