It is worth mentioning that these prisoners were already kept in solitary confinement before being hanged in the revenge of killing of border forces.

This inhuman act of disproportionate measure is the continuation of Iranian policy of crushing the peace full Baloch national resistance movement in Iran.

A memorial reference for Shaheed Professor Saba Dashtiyari in Toronto, Canada.

Press Release

Toronto, July 4, 2011 – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) and the International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (IVBMP) will be holding a joint event in Toronto to honour the martyrdom of Prof. Saba Dashtyari, target killed by the Pakistani military death squad. He was assassinated on June 1, 2011 while walking back home in Quetta, Balochistan.

Prof. Dashtyari was a revolutionary scholar, a poet, and author of several books on Balochi language, literature, and history. His academic career at the Balochistan University was a beacon of light that inspired students such as Qambar Chakar who fearlessly embraced martyrdom in the custody of the Pakistani intelligence services after extreme degree of torture.

Since July 2010, the Pakistani paramilitary death squads have dumped more than 200 mutilated bodies of disappeared Baloch students, journalists, lawyers, teachers, and political activists in the wilderness. Forensic reports of the discovered bodies are indicative of extreme torture including broken bones, deep cuts, burns, and point-blank shots to the head.

In the backdrop of the liberation struggle in Balochistan and mass scale human rights violations committed by the Pakistan Army against Baloch civilians – Prof. Dashtyari took to the streets, armed only with his books, pen, and a voice that spoke without fear.

Join us to honour the martyrdom of this brave son of Balochistan who knew well that the price of freedom is blood and did not falter for a moment.

In history, there is no death – there is only continuity.
