According to details, on 18 July, Baloch National Movement Germany Zone staged a protest in Berlin, the capital city of Germany, against the human rights violations in Balochistan and against the Harnai incident where according to reports, Pakistan army allegedly killed the family of an elderly man, Qaisar Chalgarri including his six years old granddaughter Naz Bibi.

According to the Central spokesman for Baloch National Movement, the party also ran an online campaign in social media using the hashtag #JusticForNazBibi. In the Berlin protest, along with the members of the Baloch National Movement, the sympathizers of the party, Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Germany Chapter, members of Pashtoon Tahafuz Movement (PTM), and people from the local community also took part in the demonstration.

Protesters held banners and placards. The protesters chanted different slogans such as “Pakistani army is a terrorist”, “We are not Pakistanis, we are Baloch”.

Hammal Baloch, the president of BNM Germany Zone addressed the participants saying; “The purpose of today’s demonstration is to raise awareness about the Harnai tragedy and human rights violations in Balochistan by the Pakistani Army. A few days ago Pakistan Army attacked a House in Harnai killing an elderly man Qaisar Chalgarri and his six years old granddaughter Naz Bibi and abducted two young boys from the house”

Hammal added, “Pakistan is punishing the Baloch nation for raising their voices for freedom while following a policy of collective punishment. The tragedy of Harnai is the continuation of the same policy. We want to send a message to the people of Germany and the civilized world that the people of Balochistan are being persecuted on a daily basis by the state of Pakistan.”

He further said that there is complete ban on reporting on the events in Balochistan in Pakistani media. International media is also denied access thus implementing a media blackout on matters of Balochistan. The lives of political activists, social activists, students, and teachers are not secure in Balochistan. Those who speak against the state atrocities of Pakistan in Balochistan will either be forcibly disappeared and tortured or get killed by the law enforcement agencies of Pakistan.

Asghar Ali the General Secretary of BNM Germany Zone addressed the audience and said, “Balochistan is a colony of Pakistan. From the first day of the occupation of our land, Balochistan, Pakistan has been trying to maintain its rule with the barrel of the gun and violence.”

“The abduction of Baloch women by lawless Pakistan Army is not a new phenomenon. Baloch women are being targeted since the 70s decade but the Pakistan army’s brutality has increased in the recent past. The killing of Baloch women and children is a clear call for the people of Balochistan that Pakistan is determined to continue the Baloch genocide with all its ruthlessness,” he added.

Shah Fawaz, the member of the Baloch Republican Party said, “Our women and children are safe nowhere, they are safe neither in colleges and universities nor at homes. Even our children are being targeted and killed by the Pakistan Army. The incident of Harnai where the Pakistan Army killed Naz Bibi shows the dirty intentions of Pakistan in Balochistan.”

Jassim Baloch a member of BNM said that Pakistan is involved in the killing of thousands of Baloch. Another member of BNM Arif Baloch said that the Baloch nation had been going through a testing time but the Baloch nation will never back off an inch from the demand of national freedom.

BNM member Ali said that Pakistan has abducted hundreds of Baloch women. It is the duty of the civilized world to take notice of Pakistan’s atrocities in Balochistan.

The Central Spokesman of BNM said that BNM has been raising voice for several years against Baloch genocide and collective punishment by the Pakistan army. Today’s protest in Berlin, Germany is part of the same struggle.
