Abducted Family of Sohnra Bugti, Nawaz Atta, Naseer, Hassam and Children
Toronto, Nov 19, 2017 – Baloch National Movement and BSO-Azad jointly protested today in Toronto to express their anger over the recent enforced disappearances by the Pakistani security forces in which more than a dozen students and children were abducted from their home in Karachi, Sindh. World Sindhi Congress expressed their solidarity and took part in the protest.
Baloch Students Organization – Azad General Secretary, Sanaullah Baloch and three other Central Committee members were picked up on Nov 15, 2017 from their home in Karachi during a raid by the ISI and Sindh Rangers. These illegal abductions by the Pakistani security forces have resulted in the torture and death of hundreds of political activists in Balochistan.
Pakistan’s former Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, talking to the press, ruled out the presence of ISIS militants in Pakistan. In June 2017 Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti told the media, “ISIS has no existence in Balochistan.” These are all lies. ISIS, not only does exist but the Islamist terror organization has training camps throughout Balochistan and runs death squads under the patronage of the Pakistan Army.
Abdul Majeed Bizenjo, a former Member of Provincial Assemble (MPA) Balochistan (1988-1990) is leading ISIS in Awaran. He was nominated by Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) from district Khuzdar (PB-32 Khuzdar-III) to the Provincial Assemble of Balochistan. His son Jameel Bizenjo handles the day-to-day terror operations of the Islamic State under his father’s supervision. Both, father and son are affiliated with, and take instructions from Shafeeq Mengal who heads the entire ISIS network in Balochistan.
Three years after his abduction, Zahid Baloch is still missing.
