AHRC for international action on extra-judicial killings in Balochistan

Posted on 2011/11/13 0:00:00 ( 759 reads )

News :

LAHORE: The Asian Human Rights Commission called for international community’s action over extra-judicial killings and forced disappearances in Balochistan as nine more bullet-riddled bodies were recovered from various areas of the province.

The commission said the government of Pakistan and the provincial government of Balochistan were turning a blind eye to the “ongoing slaughter of civilian activists, which is clear evidence of their connivance with the security forces.” It further said that as these official government bodies refuse to take action on forced disappearances and extrajudicial killings, the international community should intervene in the matter. Two missing persons’ bodies were found, which bore torture marks. Two bullet riddled bodies were found from Nushki and identified as those of Mohammad Naheem and Mehboob Baloch. They had been subjected to severe torture. Their family members claim that both youths were abducted by the military and secret agencies.

An open letter to the President of United States of America, President Barack Obama

Posted on 2011/10/17 1:00:00 ( 1159 reads )

News :

Dear President B Obama,

We would like to bring to your kind attention the dire human rights situation of our oppressed Baloch people. The Baloch people are constantly being oppressed and subjugated by the occupying States of Iran and Pakistan. According to Baloch human rights organisations thousands of Baloch activists and innocent Baloch have been reported missing or abducted sometimes in a broad-day light by Pakistani forces during past years.

As late as last Friday 30th Sep2011, it was reported by “The News” an official Pakistani news paper that every day four to five Baloch activists are abducted or killed in Balochistan. Iran’s approach towards Baloch people is alarmingly dire too. The arbitrary execution of innocent Baloch by the Iranian medieval regime is an unjust policy to crush Baloch resistance. A long list of executed Baloch people is recently published by the Association of Activists of Baloch Human Rights (please find attached the list of executed Baloch).

News :

Occupied Balochistan - A large number of relatives of Baloch missing persons on Sunday staged a demo in front of Quetta Press Club to protest against discovery of bullet-riddled bodies of missing persons and undue delay in recovery of other missing persons.

They feared that if immediate steps were not taken for recovery of missing persons who, they alleged, have been whisked away by State intelligence agencies, they would be killed in the same manner.

The protest was organised by Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) led by its Chairman Nasrullah Baloch. Relatives of around 30 missing persons attended the demonstration. The participants of the demo were carrying placards, portraits of their dear ones and banners inscribed with various demands. They were also raising slogans in support of their demands asking humanitarian organisations and world community to play their due role in stopping alleged genocide of Baloch nation.

Balochistan mourns: nine bodies recovered in three days

Posted on 2011/10/11 6:00:00 ( 992 reads )

News :

By Wendy Johnson

In the course of just three days, the tortured and bullet-riddled bodies of nine activists and students have turned up on roadsides in Balochistan. The names of the identified are: Rashid Ali, Shafi Mohammad, Sameer Rind, Abdul Mutalib Baloch, Ghulam Ullah Baloch, Abdul Waheed Baloch.

Back in October, 2010, Sameer was the tenth person I added to this sortable database of Baloch missing and extrajudicially killed persons. I remember his face well--he looked like any hip and confident student--the type who is capable of studying wherever his talents and smarts might take him. Sameer never had a chance to explore those options, however, for he was raised in Balochistan, where today students and activists and journalists face untold horrors if their words or political writings offend Pakistan's army and/or intelligence agencies. In some cases, the abducted are not even politically active.
