When Jamila and her sister Rukhsana* Bibi took Asim’s proposal, Bilal who has connections with a feudal family became angry and locked them up in a room and called his friends.

Jamila said that the men told her that they will teach her a lesson about honour and the importance of the Arayin tribe in the area. “He said, you are a Baloch and will remain a Baloch and you do not deserve any honour and respect,” she added.

Mahir Bibi Marri: Baloch woman suffering in Pakistan

Mahir Bibi Marri: Baloch woman suffering in Pakistan | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...

The day 9th September 1985 to her is the day when she saw the horror of this vicious army as they took shots after shots at her husband like he was a piñata or an animal ready to be slaughtered, “Nothing can be described but pure hatred and evil, as they killed my husband, my son and now I don’t know where my nephews are” says Mahir Bibi Marri.

Truly hatred and evil is the word to describe them, the way they have killed and dumped Baloch political activists is not human nature. Mahir Bibi Marri with tear in her eyes haven’t seen her son for 6 years, Mr Kamesa Marri who she says was her last support and perhaps her last hope to love this life has not returned after 25 August 2006, the day when Pakistan army started bombarding Dera Bugti and Kohlu area. Mahir Bibi Marri says that she doesn’t believe her son is dead but he’s rather missing and abducted by Pakistan army, but it doesn’t look like that what she believes is true because on that day 20 Baloch locals were killed and their bodies were not recovered. According to Baloch sources they were buried in a mass grave to hide the shame of Pakistan army.
