The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) announced to hold an awareness campaign on the occasion of 8thJune Baloch Missing Persons Day (BMPD) whole week, and added that the issue of enforced disappearances has gotten a very serious direction in Balochistan. One of the main targets of the enforced disappearances is Baloch students but the names of Baloch women are also getting enlisted in this list very rapidly. This new trend is highly worrisome while the mutilated biddies of the missing persons are being recovered with continuity.


The Spokesperson added that Balochistan is completely suffering from the human rightscrisis today. The military of the state of Pakistan does not only enforcedly disappear the people but also is killing the political prisoners in fake encounters and is engaged in dumping of their bodies. Furthermore, these extrajudicially killed missing persons are declared as militant or are buried without DNA test and any identification process just by pronouncing them heirless persons in order to get as an excuse for neutralizing these cases. The bodies of thousands of youth have been dumped in different areas since last few years and hundreds of unrecognizable bodies are also included among them, and this situation causes the relatives of missing persons to be in severe mental torture.


The Spokesperson further said that the enforced disappearance of Zakir Majeed Baloch, the former senior vice chairman of organization, is going to be of one decade on this 8th June of 2019. A student leader has been kept in custody without any crime and evidence for last ten years. For the recovery of Zakir Majeed, his family and the organization are on protest since last one decade but he hadn’t made surfaced so far and the family is also not given any information in this regarded.     


The enforced disappearances of dozen of political activists including Dr. Deen Mohammed, Ramzan Baloch, Ali Asghar Bangulzai, Sami Mengal  and hundreds of common Baloch has passed the duration of more than one decade. The missing persons are neither being recovered nor being produced before the courts despite the peaceful long marches and protests by the relatives of the Baloch missing persons and Baloch political and human rights organizations for their alive and safe recovery. 


The Spokesperson said that an awareness campaign will be held whole week from 2ndJune till 8th on the eve of BMPD and completion of one decade of Zakir Majeed’s enforced disappearance. Therefore all the oppressed nations; Pushtun, Sindhi and Muhajir, including the humanist and particularly the students are appealed are to particulate in this campaign of ours and raise an organized and an effective voice for the victims of the enforced disappearances of Baloch and all other oppressed nations’.
