In recent developments from Gwadar, an unsettling pattern of forced disappearances is emerging, raising considerable concern. Reports indicate that six individuals have been forcibly disappeared in the coastal city within a span of two days, coinciding with the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Initially, a student identified as Jabbar, son of Haji Aslam, was reportedly taken into custody and his whereabouts remain unknown. Shortly following this incident, three more individuals, identified as Farooq, Altaf, and Kambar, were also taken into custody and subsequently disappeared.

While two other individuals initially reported as missing were later released, Jabbar and the three other aforementioned individuals remain unaccounted for.

This series of disappearances unfolded amidst Sharif’s visit to Gwadar. Sharif’s visit, aimed at showcasing the government’s plans for bringing prosperity and large-scale development to Balochistan, appeared to contrast starkly with the grim reality on the ground.

It is noteworthy that while the Pakistani Prime Minister highlighted the vast potential of Gwadar and promised forthcoming job opportunities and large-scale projects, the enforced disappearances have created an atmosphere of unease and apprehension among the local population.

This situation reflects a concerning dichotomy between the promised vision of prosperity and the actual state of affairs. These incidents are the latest in a series of enforced disappearances reported across Balochistan, leading to growing Concern in the region. As such, the path to prosperity appears increasingly complicated unless the issues leading to these tensions are addressed promptly and effectively.
