The Baloch Students Action Committee (BSAC) and the National Party have expressed grave concerns about the treatment of Balochistan’s youth in Karachi, citing misconduct from the University of Karachi’s administration and the city’s police force.

In a statement, the BSAC detailed the difficulties Baloch students encounter at the University of Karachi’s girls’ hostel. They accuse the university administration of systematic harassment, including unauthorized room searches and the use of inappropriate language. Additionally, the BSAC criticized the administration for alleged neglect towards basic infrastructure issues at the hostel, such as unreliable gas and electricity supplies and deteriorating washrooms.

Meanwhile, the National Party has accused the Karachi police of allegedly targeting Balochistan’s youth in “fake” police encounters. They highlighted a particularly distressing incident where two school-going brothers from Balochistan’s Mastung were reportedly taken by officials from the Al-Falah police station to a remote location and shot. The party’s spokesperson revealed that even after the revelation of the “fake” encounter through CCTV footage and subsequent lodging of FIRs, the police continue to harass the wounded students in the hospital.

These accusations bring to light the diverse adversities faced by Balochistan’s youth in Karachi, ranging from academic harassment to police brutality. Both the BSAC and the National Party have urged the Sindh Government to promptly address these issues. The National Party has also appealed to human rights organizations to provide necessary legal aid to the affected students.
