In Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, a registration camp for missing persons has been established as part of the ongoing protest against the “Baloch genocide” and enforced disappearances in Balochistan. This camp, part of a 32-day-long protest, aims to document cases of individuals who have forcibly disappeared in Balochistan.

The initiative began in Turbat following the death of Balach Baloch in the custody of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) and was subsequently conducted in various areas including Panjgur, Khuzdar, and Quetta, before being set up in Islamabad. This registration drive is crucial in collecting data for advocacy and in raising awareness about the widespread issue of enforced disappearances in Balochistan.

Sammi Deen Baloch, General Secretary of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), is leading the registration efforts at the Islamabad camp. She highlighted the importance of documenting previously unregistered cases of enforced disappearances, a vital component in the broader human rights advocacy context. To ensure inclusivity, the organizers have facilitated remote registration via WhatsApp at +923141254122, accommodating those unable to reach Islamabad.

The establishment of this camp amid the ongoing protests highlights the persistent struggle of the Baloch people against human rights violations. It underscores their demand for accountability and justice, focusing particularly on the contentious and longstanding issue of enforced disappearances in Balochistan.
