Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has not spoken about the mass graves found in Balochistan. Chief Minister Dr. Malik Baloch has not uttered a word either. The mainstream national media has systematically snubbed the story. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have not issued statements. Nevertheless, that does not help in keeping the world ignorant about the shocking mass mass graves of Balochistan in the age of social media. There is widespread anger among the people of Balochistan and those who believe in human rights across the world over such brutal acts as well as over the silence of the Pakistani government authorities and the media. They are trying to cover up the whole issue in an attempt to protect those involved in these crimes against humanity.
Pakistan has been violating Baloch human rights including their right to life and freedom since it occupied Balochistan in March 1948. For over 60 years of occupation, the people of Balochistan have continued their resistance against the occupiers. Baloch freedom movement has had its ups and down but it has never stopped.
QUETTA, Oct 27: About 20 people, including women and children, set off for Karachi on Sunday under the banner of the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) to highlight the issue of missing persons.
Participants of the ‘long march’ — led by VBMP Vice-Chairman Qadeer Baloch and carrying placards and photographs of missing persons — began their journey at the local press club. The march will culminate in a sit-in outside the Karachi Press Club.
