UK is concerned about reports of activists in detention or missing in Pakistan, the UK Commonwealth and Foreign Office has said.

The Foreign Office has said that the UK government regularly raises its concerns about human rights with the government of Pakistan at a senior level.

The Foreign office made the above statements on behalf of UK’s Prime Minister. It said that UK is a strong supporter of human rights, including the freedom of opinion and expression.

The statement was made in response to Sindhi-Baloch forum’s memorandum that was given to UK Prime Minister in 10 Downing street on 18 April 2018

Sindhi Baloch Forum, comprised of different Baloch and Sindhi political parties, has been campaigning in United Kingdom for past one year. It has organised many protests and rallies.

“The freedom to hold and express views without censorship, intimidation or unnecessary restriction is a key indicator of the state of a country’s democracy and of the ability of citizens to participate in the development of their society,” read the UK Foreign Office letter seen by The Balochistan Post.

According to campaign groups, thousands of Baloch have been ‘disappeared’ by security forces in last two decades from different areas of Balochistan.
