BRP activists protesting during G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany

Berlin: Baloch Republican Party demonstrated against China and Pakistan during the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday. The protest was mainly against “mass killing and abductions by Pakistan army” and China’s role in Balohcistan.

Baloch Republican Party (BRP), one of the largest nationalist parties of Balochistan, held the protest demonstration during G20 summit in Hamburg city of Germany. The protesters were carrying banners and placards, reading slogans against Pakistan and China. BRP also has number of followers across Europe.

Jawad Mohammad Baloch, president of BRP German chapter while addressing the crowd said that Pakistan Army was committing gross human rights violations in every nook and corner of Balochistan. After so-called Pak-China agreement of CPEC, army barbarity increased in the highest level and now Pakistan army has started kidnapping Baloch women and children to force Baloch freedom seekers to give up their struggle for sovereign and secular Baloch state.

China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a multi billion dollar investment project by China in Balochistan. Baloch political organisations have continuously condemned the project and term it a tool to convert Baloch into a minority.

Mr. Baloch further said that thousands of people from areas along the CPEC route have been forced to migrate since the agreement. Hundreds have been killed and abducted by Pakistan army, adding that China is supporting Pakistan to suppress the voice of oppressed Baloch nation which is highly condemnable.

Mr Baloch said they gathered on the behalf of their Swiss-based party leader Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti to inform the world’s top leadership attending the summit that Pakistan army is committing war crimes and crimes against humanity for decades now. It is due responsibility of the world leadership particularly the president of the United States of America Mr Donald John Trump to look into the Balochistan issue. He urged the United States’ president to play his role to end army atrocities in Balochistan
