BSO-Azad has appealed the students of all oppressed nations to participate in the awareness campaign.
The Central Spokesperson of Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) announced to hold an awareness campaign on the occasion of 8thJune ‘Baloch Missing Persons Day’ (BMPD) for the whole week.
“The issue of enforced disappearances has gotten a very serious direction in Balochistan. One of the main targets of the enforced disappearances is Baloch students but the names of Baloch women are also getting enlisted in this list rapidly. This new trend is highly worrisome while the mutilated bodies of the missing persons are being recovered with continuity”, spokesperson added.
The Spokesperson stated that Balochistan is completely suffering from the human rights crisis today. The military of the state of Pakistan does not only enforcedly disappear the people but also is killing the political prisoners in fake encounters and is engaged in dumping of their bodies. Furthermore, these extrajudicially killed missing persons are declared as militants or are buried without DNA test and any identification process just by pronouncing them heirless persons in order to get as an excuse for neutralizing these cases. The bodies of thousands of youth have been dumped in different areas since last few years and hundreds of unrecognizable bodies are also included among them, and this situation causes the relatives of missing persons to be in severe mental torture.
The Spokesperson further said that the enforced disappearance of Zakir Majeed Baloch, the former senior vice chairman of organization, is going to be of one decade on this 8th June of 2019. A student leader has been kept in custody without any crime and evidence for last ten years. For the recovery of Zakir Majeed, his family and the organization are on protest since last one decade but he hadn’t made surfaced so far and the family is also not given any information in this regarded.
The enforced disappearance of dozens of political activists including Dr. Deen Mohammed, Ramzan Baloch, Ali Asghar Bangulzai, Sami Mengal and hundreds of Baloch civilians has passed the duration of more than one decade. The missing persons are neither being recovered nor produced before the courts despite the peaceful long marches and protests by the relatives of the Baloch missing persons and Baloch political and human rights organizations for their safe recovery.
Spokesperson of BSO said that an awareness campaign will be held whole week from 2nd June till 8th June on the eve of BMPD and completion of one decade of Zakir Majeed’s enforced disappearance. Therefore all the oppressed nations; Pushtun, Sindhi and Muhajir, including the humanist and particularly the students are appealed to participate in this campaign and raise an organized and an effective voice for the victims of the enforced disappearance of Baloch and all other oppressed nations.
