“Student organizations all around the world should pressurize Pakistan to lift the ban, imposed on BSO Azad” says Chairman of BSO Azad.

According to The Balochistan Post social media reporter, the newly elected Chairman of Baloch Students Organization – Azad (BSO-A) Sohrab Baloch, has tweeted a call for help from student organizations all around the world to play role in pressurising Pakistani State to lift ban on BSO Azad.

He said that students should be allowed to continue their activities without any fear or threat.

“I appeal all human rights organizations to support us in safe recovery of our colleagues” further said Sohrab Baloch.

It is important to recall that Pakistani government had banned the student organization, BSO-Azad on 15 March 2013, qualifying them as a terrorist organization. This action had been condemned by the Asian Human Rights Commission.

In 2014, Chairman of BSO Azad, Zahid Kurd alias Baloch Khan was abducted and is still missing.

“Pakistani forces along with intelligence agencies have arrested and taken away Zahid Kurd in front of me”, Kareema Baloch, former chairperson of BSO Azad, had said in a press conference few days after Zahid’s disappearance.

Through the past decade, numerous members of BSO-Azad, including Zakir Majeed, their Vice Chairman, have gone missing, the later since 2009.

BSO, as well as different international human rights organizations , including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, hold Pakistani intelligence agencies responsible for these abductions.
