BNM Germany Zone President Hammal Baloch said that killing of political activists in fake encounters in the custody of Pakistani intelligence agencies, who are missing for years, is the continuation of Baloch genocide. If international human rights organizations remain silent on such atrocities, this human tragedy could intensify in Balochistan.
Asghar Ali Baloch, General Secretary, BNM Germany Zone, while addressing the program, said that in the last two months, 28 Baloch missing persons have been killed by the Pakistan Police, Counter Terrorism Department in fake encounters. All of them killed in fake encounters were the victims of enforced disappearances by the intelligence agencies.
Asghar Baloch said that in the last two decades, the Pakistani occupation forces have inflicted a number of
atrocities on Balochistan, ranging from enforced disappearances of people to imprisonment and inhumane punishments, and later throwing their mutilated bodies in roadside or in inhabited places. But the atrocities of Pakistan are not coming to in halt in for seen future. On the contrary, the state is increasing it’s oppression day by day.
Asghar Baloch added that in the last two decades, the state of Pakistan has forcibly disappeared thousands of Baloch activists, who have been held in Pakistani torture cells without charge and are serving sentences for crimes which they never committed. Now Pakistan is committed to kill the Baloch Missing Persons in fake police encounters in order to thwart the Baloch Missing Persons movement. One of the example is the case of Saddam Baloch. He was a member of the Baloch National Moment, who was forcibly disappeared by Pakistani forces from Karachi in April 2018 and has just been killed in a fake encounter.
BRP member Fawaz Baloch slammed the CTD for killing missing persons in fake encounters and said that it was our national responsibility to stop any repression on Baloch and Balochistan. And if we remain silent, Pakistan will not hesitate to use all kinds of oppression to suppress the Baloch national movement. He said that we are here to expose Pakistani atrocities in Balochistan.
