Baloch national icon and Vice Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) Mama Qadeer Baloch is very ill. He went to the government run Bolan Medical Complex Hospital (BMCH) for treatment. But the doctors there excused treating him citing the strict orders of the Chief Minister (CM) Balochistan Dr. Malik Baloch not to treat him if he ever visits any of the doctors there. He prayed to treat him on humanitarian basis but the doctors said we cannot and if we do we will immediately be sacked as we cannot lose our job for you.
Mama Qadeer recently visited the passport office to renew his expiring passport but they also refused to issue him a new one citing Pakistan secret agencies’ strict orders not to do so. They also said that your name is listed in the Exit Control List (ECL). He argued that it is the job of Immigration Department not the Passport Office but to no avail.
