‘1,500 dead, 18,000 still missing in Balochistan’Call for UN intervention to resolve missing persons’ issue February 28, 2014ISRAR AHMAD

RAWALPINDI  - Mama Qadeer Baloch, who is leading the long march for the recovery of Baloch missing persons, said that approximately 1,500 persons were killed and more than 18,000 were still missing from country’s largest province and the figure included 170 females and 169 children.
“1500 mutilated bodies of the missing persons had been received which was an open violation of the human rights. I believe that the rest 18,000 have also been killed and buried in the similar kind of mass graves in the province that was found in Khuzdar,” he said.
The forceful disappearance of innocent Baloch people attained a new peak during PPP regime and earlier in Musharraf’s rule. “The then federal interior minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao stated in 2005 that as many as 6,000 Balochis were in government’s detention centres,” he added.
Mama said, “I have no trust in the government and just want the intervention of United Nations (UN) and world human rights organisation to come forward to unveil the killing and dumping policy of our intelligence agencies.”
Mama Qadeer expressed these while talking to media men after the long march participants reached the city on Thursday. It was the 160th day of the journey that started from Quetta, Capital of Balochistan on October 23 last year. The march is scheduled to culminate in Islamabad.
The other participants of the long march of “Voice for Missing Balochis” included women and children whose fathers, brothers and cousins were either killed or missing since long, were holding banners inscribed with slogans reads as “Wake up UN”, “Stop genocide of Balochis”, “We seek justice for Balochis”. Members of civil society and locals also joined the march when it reached Rawalpindi Soan Bus Terminal....

f you are neutral in the situation of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor-- Deshmond Tutu 

War-torn countries are always big mass burial grounds whether it’s Stailn's Soviet Union or occupied Kurdistan. Few days before three mass graves were found in Tootak area of Khuzdar in Balochistan. More than a hundred mutilated and decomposed bodies of men and women were found. Pakistan army has abducted more than 18000 Baloch from occupied Balochistan and murdered over 1000 of them in military concentrations camps. 

Pakistan also committed crimes against the Bengali nation during their war of national liberation of Bangladesh. Pakistani army carried out "selective genocide" in Bangladesh. Mass graves still exists in Bangladesh where students, intellectuals, workers, peasants anyone suspected of opposing the Pakistani establishment were murdered. This kind of mass graves also exists in occupied Balochistan. Pakistani army and their death squads murder students, teachers, journalists, intellectuals and writers which a systematic effort to eliminate the intellectual and educated class of Baloch society.

3 murdered,2 bullet riddled bodies found,while 6 others abducted within 24 hours | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Occupied Balochistan: Within last 24 hours, 3 Balochs have been shot dead, 6 Balochs forcefully disappeared while bodies of 2 were recovered from different areas of Balochistan. This seemingly unending wave of violence being committed by Pakistan in Balochistan is being covered by Pakistan’s claims of reconciliation with the Baloch nation, which is struggling against the illegal occupation of their motherland by Pakistan since March 1948. .... 

It is worth mentioning that Pakistan is double crossing the international community by claiming to reconcile with the Baloch nationalists and denying the human rights abuses that it’s committing in Balochistan, whereas on the other hand it has continued its policies of the slow genocide of Baloch people. The time has come for the international community and humanitarian organizations to intervene in Balochistan and put an end to the Pakistani state's brutalities against the indigenous Baloch populace.

"....The Balochistan government has established a Tribunal Inquiry with the powers of a civil court headed by a judge of the Balochistan High Court and a special Medical Board to investigate the graves.

Two more Baloch abducted, a woman and a child killed by occupying forces in Dera Bugti – Sher Mohammad Bugti

Two more Baloch abducted, a woman and a child killed by occupying forces in Dera Bugti – Sher Mohammad Bugti | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

 ... The arbitrary abductions and extra-judicial killings of innocent Baloch people continue unabated in Balochistan and on one hand Pakistani officials and supreme court of Pakistan claim to be making efforts for recovery of Baloch missing persons and for the halt in the cases of recovery of bullet-riddled dead bodies and on the other hand forces continue to abduct, torture and extra-judicially kill them.

...

It must be noted that the area always suffer from military offensives of the Pakistani forces and the residents are threatened by the forces to quit the area so they could pave the way of international oil and gas companies for the oil and gas reserves in the area. Drinking water sources like lakes, wells etc are poisoned and land mines are laid all over the area to compel the residents to flee the area. Laying mines, poisoning the drinking water and burning houses are the worst war crimes being committed in Balochistan by Pakistani forces with no attention from the civilized world.

The only aim of the so-called efforts of judiciary and claims of Pakistani officials about the recovery of the Baloch missing persons is to confuse the world about the real facts in Balochistan. We appeal to the international community, human rights organizations, European Union and the civilized nations to take notice of worst wars crimes by Pakistani forces and send fact finding missions to Balochistan to surface the genocide of Baloch people by the occupying state of Pakistan.

Pakistan must end its policy of killings and kidnappings of Baloch people and recognise the importance of the region.    ....

Pakistanis seem to forget that Balochistan may only have a tiny population - but comprises 44 per cent of Pakistan's land territory. They forget it has vast natural resources and hundreds of miles of sea coast which make it a key geopolitical area. While Balochistan can survive without Pakistan, it is Pakistan that simply cannot survive without Balochistan.
