Farzana Majeed Baloch with Zakir Majeed's picture

ISLAMABAD, April 30: Zakir Majid Baloch was picked up from Mastung three years ago. He was on his way to a university where he was enrolled as an MA English student. Zakir had always wanted to go to Balochistan University in Quetta but it was impossible for him to get admission there. According to his sister Farzana Majid, his political activities in the Baloch Student Organization-Azad made him an unpopular pick for most academic institutions. It was most likely also the reason for his kidnapping: Farzana believes that the security agencies picked him up on June 8, 2009, to punish him for his activities.

“I just want my brother to come home. His political activities might be the reason that he was picked up but it is certainly not a legitimate one,” she explains.

Farzana is part of a delegation of family members that arrived in Islamabad on Sunday to set up a camp in front of the National Press Club. The families are organised under the Baloch Voice for Missing Persons (BVMP), a self-proclaimed apolitical lobby group with one sole purpose: to recover their loved ones.

COMMENT: Nawaz Sharif’s Balochistan visit — Malik Siraj Akbar

Sharif has surely won the confidence of key Baloch tribal elders by now and will continue to do so in the coming days but he still has a long way to go to win the hearts and minds of the disillusioned Baloch people with his deeds

Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, the head of Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N), did not return home empty-handed from his two-day long visit to the volatile Balochistan province.
