Concern over human rights situation in Balochistan

By Amanullah Kasi

QUETTA: Representatives of Baloch nationalist groups have called upon the United Nations, European Union, Amnesty International and the International Court of Justice to take notice of the human rights situation in Balochistan.

Speaking at a public meeting held in the New Kahan village in the suburbs of the city on Wednesday, the representatives of Anjuman Ittehad Marri, Baloch Republican Party, Baloch National Movement and Baloch Women Panel expressed concern over the recovery of five bullet-riddled bodies in Pishin on Tuesday.

The meeting organised to mark the third death anniversary of Nawabzada Balaach Marri was presided over by Sher Ali Baloch of Anjuman Ittehad Marri. Dr Bashir Azeem and Chakar Qambrani of BRP, Agha Ashraf Dilsoz of BNM, Mehar Jan Baloch of BWP and Nasir Qambrani of Khalq group spoke on the occasion.

A message from London-based self-exiled Baloch leader Nawabzada Hyarbyar Marri was read out by Yousuf Baloch.

Hyarbyar Marri criticised Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani for giving an impression that an internal clash between Baloch tribes was behind the finding of five mutilated bodies. He accused Mr Raisani of speaking in the tone of intelligence agencies.

The meeting adopted several resolutions which condemned killings in detention, criticised British government for imposing restriction on the activities of Hyarbyar Marri in London and lauded the struggle of Baloch nationalist parties.
