Zahid Kurd has been subjected to brutal torture on the spot being taken away: VBMP
BALOCHISTAN: The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons leaders including Chairman Nasrullah Baloch, Vice Chairman Abdul Qadeer Baloch and General Secretary Farzana Majeed Baloch have urged Amnesty International, European Union, UN and other international Human Rights bodies to take to notice of enforced disappearances in Balochistan.
The VBMP leader said that Pakistani forces illegally abducted 19200 Baloch activists and more than 2000 among them have been killed and dump. “We have given proof and the documents about enforced-disappearances in Balochistan to UN representatives in Islamabad,” they said.
Canada and NATO have spent the last dozen years fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, when the more dangerous enemy was the country next door — Pakistan.

The letter by Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird was refreshing in its lucidity and demonstrated clarity, not common in this era of political correctness, where ambiguity passes for diplomatic-speak.
He wrote to a group of exiled Baloch students in Europe:
ISLAMABAD: Mama Qadeer Baloch, who carried out the 2,800 kilometre long march from Quetta to Islamabad for the recovery of Baloch missing persons, has said that they have contacted the United Nations after being disappointed by the government and the judiciary.
They have consulted officials of the world body in Islamabad and have been assured that the United Nations will soon take up the issue of missing persons with the Government of Pakistan. Mama Qadeer expressed these views in the Geo News programme ‘Capital Talk’, while talking to the host of the show Hamid Mir on Wednesday.
Dear Hamid Mir,
I’m writing you this letter with the hope that perhaps the historians of the next century – standing in the witness box of history – will reveal the truth about the oppressed Baloch nation, hold the colonial powers and occupying rulers of the day accountable and examine the role and discourse of its advocates and intelligentsia. It should not be the case that today’s columnists and intellectuals are restrained by the fear of the ruler or its lust for conquest.
