The representatives of the Baloch Yakjehti Committee Karachi said in a statement on Tuesday that their committee supports the protests for missing Abdul Majeed Shahdad’s recovery. They requested the public to participate in the protest, which will be held on September 12 by his family.

The representatives said that Abdul Majeed Shahdad, a resident of Saakran in Hub Chowki, was working as a watchman at a mill to eke out a living for his family. On July 30, several armed persons, including two police personnel, detained Majeed and moved him to an unknown location. His whereabouts and condition remain unknown. His family is worried about his life, they said.

The representatives further said that enforced disappearance, while commonplace, have sent shockwaves of anxiety throughout Balochistan. The family of the missing persons are in an indescribable agony that not anyone but they can feel. They said that the disappearance of a labourer like Majeed demonstrates that no one, regardless of which class they come from, is safe in Balochistan. This widespread insecurity puts a question mark on the state-run institutions, they said.

The statement further claimed that Majeed’s family was barred from filing a First Information Report in the Police station. They then pleaded the law enforcement agencies for the recovery of Majeed, but to no avail. His family then resorted to organizing a protest for his safe recovery on September 12. The public, regardless of class or profession, is requested to participate in the protest, the representatives concluded.
