Countries with terrible human rights get on the UNHRC to protect themselves against being investigated, not to make change for betterment of human kind.

A day doesn’t go by without news coming from Baluchistan of Baloch people are being enforcedly disappeared by Pakistani state intelligence agencies, and this is not a recent phenomenon.
Baloch people and the situation of ‘missing person’ (as the enforced disappeared persons are called in Pakistan), go long back in the 70’s when the so-called democratic government of Z.A Bhutto’s was on the helm of the Pakistan state. But since the fifth wave of Baloch rights movement erupted in the late 90’s Pakistan stated to use this dirty war tactic in an epidemic proportion to crush it.
BALOCHISTAN: A man who went missing couple of days ago has been severely tortured and thrown at a road-side.
According to the details received by The Balochistan Post, Muslim s/o Muhammad Raheem was forcibly taken away by, what the locals accuse, personnel of Pakistani security forces on 18th June 2018 from Sholeeg town of Gwadar District.

Urgent Action Case -001-2018
Date: 11 May 2018
The International Human Rights Council (IHRC-HK) has received information regarding the disappearance of a young student, Sagheer Ahmed Baloch, who was allegedly picked up by the intelligence agencies five months ago and remains disappeared to this day. Sagheer was picked up from Karachi University in broad daylight by plain clothed persons and no one was able to assist him.
21-year-old Sagheer Ahmed Baloch was picked up by men in plainclothes from a canteen of the Karachi University on November 20, 2017. Sagheer was a second-year student of political science at the university. His family maintains that he had no political or militant affiliation and that he was a law-abiding citizen of the country with no previous history of crime.
Undoubtedly, the issue of missing persons demands a unified approach but in this melee the reason why Baloch go missing should not be swamped, forgotten and sidelined

I do not want to be seen as someone throwing a monkey wrench into the works and undermining the move towards a prospective Baloch-Pashtun unity but there are certain things which all those advocating and proposing this unity should understand and keep in view. I for one would be the happiest if this much-wanted unity materializes and becomes a political reality in this depressingly barren political landscape. I have mentioned below some things which do require attention of all who desire the much-needed unity between Baloch and Pashtuns and all those who want return of missing persons.
