A widespread social media campaign initiated by the Baloch Social Media Activists (BSMA) has gained momentum, causing the hashtag #UNForBalochistan to trend on ‘X’, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, not only in Pakistan but also in various other countries. The campaign’s primary objective is to prompt the United Nations to dispatch a fact-finding mission to Balochistan to investigate the ongoing “Baloch genocide.”

In a press release issued by the BSMA, the urgency for United Nations intervention in Balochistan was underscored. The release emphasized several critical points, including the necessity to halt ongoing “state-sponsored violence,” seek justice for Baloch victims and their families, and draw global attention to the situation to compel the Pakistani government to address concerns.

Highlighting the importance of the BSMA’s role as a platform for Baloch activists, the press release stated its commitment to amplifying the often unheard voices. Through a strategic social media approach, the BSMA said it aims to garner global support, raise awareness about the severity of the Balochistan situation, and urge the UN and human rights organizations to take decisive action.

The families of Baloch missing persons have been staging protests in Islamabad for eleven consecutive days, demanding an end to enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings in Balochistan. The BSMA joined their call, aiming to amplify their voices through the online campaign, urging the UN to take action.

The Baloch protestors in Islamabad have appealed to the United Nations and human rights groups to investigate what they term the “Baloch genocide” in Balochistan. So far, they have received no response, leaving the issue unresolved amidst ongoing tensions and human rights violations.
