The central spokesman for the Baloch National Movement said that the aggression of the Pakistani army in Balochistan is increasing day by day. People are being killed and forcibly disappeared in Balochistan.
BNM spokesman said that the Pakistani army has recently launched a new wave of operation in Dera Bugti, Kahan and Lehri districts adjoining Sibi—killing four people and abducting at least seven others.
According to the BNM statement: Pakistani army infantry cordoned off a village called Kodi Peshi in Kahan Tehsil of Kohlu District, on Saturday and launched an offensive. A man name Jando and his nine-year-old son Ali Dad were killed, while his 15-year-old son, Ghulam Muhammad son of Jando went missing with his cousin.
“On Sunday, the Pakistani army raided the house of 75-year-old Hazaro Domki in the village of Gori in Lehri district, adjacent to Sibi. His two innocent sons, Aleem Domki and Hamid Domki, were shot killed in front of him. After this bloodshed, Hazaro along with his other son Attallah was forcibly disappeared by the forces,” statement read.
The BNM spokesperson further said that the killings and enforced disappearances by the Pakistani army in Balochistan have created a humanitarian crisis that has engulfed the people from all over Balochistan. Forced disappearances have become common occurrence on a daily basis.
“On the evening of February 19, 2021, four youths were abducted by the army personnel from a wedding party in Patt Feeder area of Dera Bugti. They are identified as Rasula son of Manda Bugti, Gamal son of Lala Bugti, Jong son of Taokali Bugti and Bojal son of Ali Bugti,” he added.
The statement read that BNM has been raising its voice against these disappearances globally but this issue needed the full attention of international human rights organizations. “Pakistani atrocities in Balochistan will not end unless the international powers intervene in the affairs of Balochistan,” the spokesman stressed.
The BNM spokesperson said that state elements had made life miserable for Baloch people not only in occupied Balochistan but in every corner of Pakistan. Pakistani intelligence is once again mobilizing criminal gangs in Baloch areas of Karachi to stem the tide of political and intellectual awareness. “Even in the past, Lyari had been deliberately made a hotbed of criminals in order to weaken the Baloch population by keeping them backward on academic and political grounds,” he added.
He said that Lyari is the birthplace of nationalist parties. A national political mindset is needed to be organised to prevent criminal and rogue groups and stop them from flourishing in the region.
“The heart of every Baloch in Balochistan beats with Lyari. The Baloch living in Balochistan will not leave Lyari alone,” he concluded.
