Enforced disappearance is illegal, torture is cruel, custodial killing is unlawful and genocide has been declared a crime against humanity by the international community and the civilized world. Though the Baloch nation suffers all these gross human rights violations under occupation of Pakistan and Iran, but still the international community sits idle.
Today we narrate the life of Sana; we shall tell you how he lived and why he was killed.
For several years, Pakistan has been facing a separatist insurgency by ethno-nationalist rebels belonging to the Baloch ethnic group. The guerrillas in the southwest province of Balochistan have become increasingly daring with their attacks. Two weeks ago, they shocked the rest of Pakistan by destroying the historic residence of Pakistan’s founding father Mohammed Ali Jinnah in the town of Ziarat.
Balochistan is one of the most underdeveloped regions in Pakistan, and has traditionally had a heavily male-dominated patriarchal society. Women have rarely had a role in public life. But things have been changing recently, as increasing numbers of women are taking up active and leading roles in the Baloch nationalist movement.
Zarina Baloch, Sister of Martyred Baloch leader Sana Sangat didn’t participated in the funeral of his brother and remained in Karachi and prefers to continue her protest against the arbitrary abductions and extra-judicial killings of Baloch political activists by occupying Pakistani forces in Balochistan.
She says she realized to continue the protest to let the world know what is happening in Balochistan and she did not go to the funeral of his brother along with other relatives.
