موت کے سائے تلے شجاعت

روزانہ 30 کلومیٹر چلنا کوئی کھیل نہیں ہے، حتیٰ کہ سخت جان لوگوں کیلئے بھی، اور یہاں پر تو نازک اور کمزور لڑکیاں، ایک بوڑھا آدمی اور ایک دس سالہ لڑکا تھے

Mir Muhammad Ali Talpurماما عبدالقدیر ریکی کے بیٹے شہید میر جلیل ریکی 13 فروری 2009ء میں اغواء کیے گئے؛ وہ بلوچ ریپبلکن پارٹی کے سیکرٹری اطلاعات تھے۔ قدرتی طور پر ماما قدیر نے اپنے بیٹے کی رہائی کی کوشش کی کیونکہ ’مارو اور پھینک دو‘ کی منظم پالیسی کی پیشگی طور ابتداء ہوچکی تھی اور بلوچ کارکنوں کی بری طرح سے مسخ شدہ لاشیں بلوچستان میں ملنا شروع ہوئی تھیں۔ اپنے بیٹے کی حفاظت کو یقینی بنانے کی کوششوں کے بدلے میں انہیں صرف اور صرف جھوٹے وعدے یا دھمکیاں ملیں۔ جب انہیں احساس ہوا کہ ریاست کو اس ظلم و ستم کیلئے شاید ہی کوئی چیلنج کرے تو انہوں نے بلوچ کارکنوں کے اس غیر انسانی اور ظالمانہ اغواء اور قتل کیخلاف احتجاج شروع کرنے کا فیصلہ کیا۔ اس احتجاج کو اب 2,287 دن پورے ہوچکے ہیں۔ 28 جولائی 2009ء کو پریس کلبوں کے باہر علامتی بھوک ہڑتالی احتجاج کیے جارہے تھے۔ اس کے علاوہ 27 ستمبر 2009ء میں لاپتہ بلوچوں کی بازیابی کیلئے ایک تنظیم وائس فار بلوچ مسنگ پرسنز قائم کی گئی، ماما قدیر بطور اس کے وائس چیئرمین اور نصراللہ بلوچ، جن کے چچا اصغر بنگلزئی کو 2001ء میں اغوا کیا گیا تھا، بطور اس کے چیئرمین۔

Courage under fire – Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

vbmplongmarch-islamabad

Walking up to 30 kilometers a day is no mean feat even for a hardy lot and here were those delicate and weak girls, an old man and ten-year-old boy

Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurMir Jalil Reiki Shaheed, son of Mama Abdul Qadeer Reiki, was abducted on February 13, 2009; he was the information secretary of the Baloch Republican Party. Mama Qadeer naturally strove to secure the release of his son because the systematic policy of ‘kill and dump’ had started in earnest and the severely mutilated bodies of Baloch activists had started appearing in Balochistan. All he got in return for his efforts to secure his son’s safety was false promises or threats. Realising that the state was hardly being challenged for its atrocities, he decided to start a protest against the inhuman and unjust abductions and killings of Baloch activists. The protest is now 2,287 days old. There was a token hunger strike protest outside the press clubs on July 28, 2009. Moreover, on September 27, 2009 the Voice of Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), an organisation for the recovery of the missing Baloch, was formed with Mama Qadeer as vice chairman and Nasrullah Baloch, whose uncle Asghar Bangulzai was abducted in 2001, as chairman.

The BALOCH who is not MISSING & others who are – Mohammed Hanif

The Baloch who is not missing & others who are

Since 2005, the Human Rights Commission has been paying special attention to the increasingly alarming human rights situation in Balochistan. The Commission has organized four fact-finding missions to the province, the reports of which have been widely disseminated. A special desk on missing persons has also been set up in Quetta that maintains data on enforced disappearances and killings.

However, it was after reading Mohammed Hanif’s account of his meeting with Qadeer Baloch in Dawn that the idea of a book came to me. Hanif’s conversation with Qadeer Baloch about the disappearance and killing of his son, Jaleel Reiki, was moving – and disturbing – in a way that statistics can never be. I knew that if HRCP were to publish a book about the missing in Balochistan, Hanif would be the writer to put the stories together. He was quick to agree and joined HRCP’s fact-finding mission to Balochistan in May 2012.
