HRCP asks militants to trust democratic government
QUETTA: Member Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) Asma Jhangir on Tuesday asked the militant groups to trust the incumbent political government giving them specific time for the resolution of issues of the province of Balochistan.
Addressing a press conference here at local hotel, she said that law and order situation in the province was very grim as incidents of target killings, bombings and kidnapping for ransom were all time high.
“It is high time for the military and civil government to sit together and find an amicable solution to the unrest in Balochistan,” she added.
Stressing the need for federation’s support to Balochistan, Mis Asma said that federal government should assist provincial government in its efforts to bring peace in the province.
“There must be no delay in the packages and other support announced by the federal government to Balochistan,” she added.
She noted that without resolving the issue of missing person, peace in the volatile province could not be restored. HRCP expressed concern over the tragic incidents of attack on Qaid Residency Ziaart and Women University students. Malik Saeed Hasan, former Justice Lahore High Court, Advocate Tahir, member of the HRCP and Zahoor Shahwani President Balochistan Bar Association were also present.
