bBaloch Republican Party chief Nawab Brahumdagh Khan Bugti has expressed concerns over the silence of United Nations and Human Rights organizations regarding ongoing Human Rights violations and Baloch genocide in Balochistan. He termed the Gawadar port’s handover to China; Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline and other such projects as continuity of tactics of strengthening illegal occupation over Baloch land. “China should refrain from becoming a player in Baloch genocide” he expressed these views in a meeting of Baloch Republican Party activists from UK and different countries of Europe in Geneva.

Military operations, enforced disappearances of Baloch activists, recovery of mutilated dead bodies and overall situation of Balochistan was discussed in the meeting and important decisions were made regarding organizing BRP and making it more active on international level.

Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti emphasized to foster Baloch national unity and stressed the need to intensify the struggle for independence. He said that it was duty of the enlightened Baloch activists to raise awareness among the Baloch people to convince them to join Baloch freedom struggle and ensure national salvation.

He said that state atrocities continue in Balochistan and handover of Gawadar port and projects for exploitations of natural resources in Dera Bugti to China were part of the ugly design to strengthen illegal occupation of Balochistan. “We have made it clear before China and other countries & companies that they should refrain from dealing with Pakistan regarding Baloch resources because Baloch nation is not bound to respect such deals and agreements” he said adding that foreign countries and companies should not become a crime partner with Pakistan and Iran in Baloch genocide and anti-Baloch policies.

The meeting was held after a protest in front of United Nations in Geneva by Baloch Republican Party activists. Protestors condemn the ongoing military operations, enforced disappearances, kill and dump operations and gross human rights violations perpetrated by Pakistani forces in Balochistan. Activists were carrying placards and banners inscribed with different slogans. Participants said Pakistan occupied the sovereign Baloch state on March 27, 1948 and undermined the freedom of Baloch nation. “The state enslaved the Baloch under colonial system and started the plunder of the natural resources of Balochistan.”

They said that military operations in different parts of Balochistan including Dera Bugti, Kohlu, Mashkay, Awaran, Tump, Punjgor, Mastung, Mungchar continued while the abduction of Baloch activists and dumping of their dead bodies after being tortured in military cells became a daily routine. Protestors said that western military and other aids to Pakistan were being used against the Baloch people and silence of the international media and human rights bodies was a matter of concern for Baloch nation.

Activists appealed to the United Nations to end its prolonged silence over Baloch genocide and to play its due role to end atrocities and injustices against the Baloch people. They demanded an immediate end to all kind of western aid to Pakistan and called for the western world to support Baloch struggle for national freedom. here link
