Killed by Pakistan Army on August 19, 2011
Genocide is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948): – “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group.”
Since 1948, after the World War II, the countries that committed genocide have denied it, and the civilized world that have committed itself not to allow it to happen again stood idle, avoiding to call an annihilation a genocide because they will be obliged to take action to stop it. We Baloch are squeezed between these two worlds, slaughtered by Iran and Pakistan but our situation not recognized as genocide by the West and the international community.

A Baluch man has staged a sit-in since July 16 at the city’s mosque, as the location of his son arrested over protesting mass rape of 41 women has remained unknown for nearly one month, Baluch Activists Campaign reported on Monday.
In a video clip circulated on social media, Gholam Ghader Bozorgzadeh expressed despair about his son’s situation, declaring that he is resuming his sit-in, demanding the authorities to reveal the location of his son, Abullah Bozorgzadeh.
