KARACHI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) did not allow three Baloch rights activists to travel to the United States on Wednesday to attend a seminar about alleged violation of human rights in Pakistan, stating that their names were on the Exit Control List (ECL).
According to Abdul Qadeer Baloch of the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, popularly known as Mama Qadeer, he arrived at the Jinnah Terminal along with activists Farzana Majeed and Faiqa and relatives of ‘missing’ Baloch persons to take a flight to the US. But when they reached the FIA counter, they were prevented from proceeding abroad.
Join us in the rally to protest against
Genocide in Lyari
Police & Terrorists
Sunday May 06th, 2012
2:00 – 4:00 pm
Police and terrorists are carrying out one of the most ferocious and callous armed operation in the Lyari area of Karachi since 27 April 2012. In this targeted operation more than million Baloch and Sindhi people have been left to suffer and die without food, water, electricity and medicines. Thousands have left Lyari to find security. Lyari looks like a war zone. Scores have been killed. It is genocide on the pretext of war against gangsters. The international community should stop this insanity and crime against humanity.
GENEVA: A large demonstration was held outside the United Nations here on the occasion of the 19th Session of UN Human Rights Council to condemn the human rights violations in Balochistan and ask for the end of military operation in the restive insurgency-hit province.
The demonstration was organised and led by Mehran Baloch, Balochistan’s representative at the United Nations and Noordin Mengal. The participants traveled from London, Germany, Canada, France and Brussels to take part in the protest. World Sindhi Congress, Baloch Human Rights Council and United Kashmir People’s National Party also joined the Baloch demonstrators to support their demands.
LONDON: A public meeting was held in London to highlight and condemn the ongoing Pakistani state terror against Baloch people and minorities. A fair number of Baloch political activists and representative of different Human Rights Organisations have participated in meeting to learn about Pakistan’s atrocities against people of Balochistan.
LONDON: On 8th May a large number of Sindhis and Balochs from all over the UK and Europe gathered in front of 10 Downing Street, the residence of the British Prime Minster Hon. David Cameron, to protest against the killing and disappearances of Sindhi and Baloch people by Pakistan’s security agencies. The rally was organised by World Sindhi Congress, Baloch Human Rights Council UK and the International Voice for Missing Baloch Persons.
