A rally was organized from Karachi Arts Council to Press Club on the call of Voice for Baloch Missing (VBMP) on the occasion of International Women’s Day in Karachi, the capital of Sindh.
Baloch Yekjethi Committee (BYC) Karachi strongly supported the rally, as did Awami Workers Party (AWP) and Baloch Students Organisation (BSO) who not only supported but as well as participated in it.
During International Women’s Day, rally participants expressed their opposition to centuries of oppression against women. In Pakistan today, Baloch women are the victims of state oppression and exploitation, now Baloch women are not safe even in homes, intersections, educational institutions, and workplaces.
In these wonderfully free times of the reign of enlightened moderation the procedure to get an exclusive interview with the General-President has been radically streamlined. All a TV channel has to do is to either request the Islamabad police to send its commandos to wreck the studios while the information minister is there or ask the goon run coalition partner of the Sindh government and of course Musharraf’s favorite to send their democracy and liberalism loving goons to bring it under small arm fire for a few hours. And Hey Presto the exclusive interview is granted.
There is no guarantee that pearls of wisdom will be showered or solutions of world problems forwarded but one thing is certain the mindset of the interviewee is duly exposed.
