If there is one issue one cannot skip while talking about Balochistan, it is indeed the case of numerous missing persons who have allegedly been whisked away by the state intelligence agencies. Former military dictator General Musharraf , who instigated the conflict in Balochistan, is gone; his policies predominately continue to misrule the gas-rich province. The Baloch Hal spoke to chairman of Voice for the Missing Baloch Persons, a platform that has brought together all the families that simultaneously mourn and await the return of a missing person. Excerpts:
KHUZDAR: At least two Baloch political activists were shot dead and four others were seriously injured after security force opened indiscriminate fire on a protest rally of the Baloch Students’ Organization (BSO) in Khuzdar district on Friday.
According to the details, security forces opened fire on a protest rally of the Baloch Students Organization (BSO-Azad) which was intended to protest the recent killing of Baloch citizens in Karachi and the launching of a government-backed operation in the area.
The Baloch Hal Editorial
With the commencement of the new year, 2010, children of the missing Baloch persons have established a hunger strike camp in front of Quetta Press Club. The composition of the camp is very diverse. These children come from different districts of Balochistan. Their ‘missing’ parents also belong to varying age brackets and professions. While many children of this age are busy studying at schools and colleges or preparing for their annual examinations, children of these disappeared people are spending their days in extreme chill inside the hunger strike camp. They hold the photographs of their dear ones and look at every visitor with the anticipation to bring them some ‘good news’. They do not go to school or colleges but look for their missing ones.
