The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) demanded an end human rights abuses in Balochsitan, including “enforced disappearance”, and demanded that the Baloch missing persons be safely released.  

Addressing a press conference in the Quetta Press Club on Wednesday, Advocated Habib Tahir, the Chairperson of HRCP’s Balochistan chapter, said that Karima Baloch, Hayat Baloch and journalist Shaheena Baloch were killed in the past year, which is condemnable. He said that the release of several Baloch missing persons – who had been gone for “years” – is a positive step.  

He appealed to the authorities to make sure that the thousands of other Baloch missing persons safely return home.  

HRCP officials further said that more than 36,000 workers had lost their jobs in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Enforced disappearances” were also on the rise, they said.
