President General Assembly should meet the victims of state atrocities: BSO Azad


The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) termed the visit of President General Assembly as welcoming, and expressed concerns that many other delegations have visited Paksitan before this visit which failed to stop the state barbarism in Balochistan.

The 2012 visit of United Nations (UN) Working Group to Pakistan was about the missing persons. That visit was aimed to make a conclusive report about the missing persons and human rights violations in Pakistan and to submit it to the UN Human Rights Council.

That delegation met all the stakeholders in Quetta. The report and proofs were presented in those meetings. Despite this all, the Pakistani atrocities increased in spite of decreasing in Balochistan.

Today, the human rights violations in Balochistan are on peak. State of Paksitan, disrespecting the human rights laws and with impunity, has kept its barbaric operations continued in Balochistan.

The aims and objectives of UN General Assembly holds the responsibility of protection of the nations and promises to play its due role in the political, economic, fiscal, social and the cultural matters, but on other hand Pakistan is insulting the UN charter.

The spokesperson said that forced annexation itself is a grave violation of the international laws. State atrocities are gaining intensity on daily basis since the forced annexation of Balochistan.  Legally, it was the responsibility of UN and human rights institutions to play their role for the stoppage of human rights violation since the beginning. But it is very regretful that the silence of UN and human rights institutions has encouraged Pakistan which has benefitted from this silence and made Balochistan its slaughter house.    

The spokesperson further said that the Baloch political activist, students, teachers, children, women and elders are the victims of state atrocious and barbarism. Common people are enforcedly disappeared, are torture inhumanly and then their mutilated bodies are thrown in the depopulated areas.

The civilian population is under the aggressive military operations and indiscriminate bombardment. Piousness chemicals are mixed in the water of canals which has affected the entire population with different diseases and also killed several among them.

During the military operation, the livestock are stolen and the complete population is set on fire including collapsing the residents of locals. Few years ago, several mass graves were discovered from Khuzdar and Panjgur areas of Balochistan, and recently several mutilated bodies were buried without DNA test.  Though, all this is the violation of human rights and UN aims and objectives, but despite this all, UN along with its subsidiary institutions and the international media have adopted a criminal silence.   

The spokesperson said that it is the obligation of UN General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espinosa to listen the stances of Baloch, Sindhi, Muhajir, Pushtun and other oppressed nations during her visit.

Including that she should visit the affected areas of Balochistan, Sindh, Pakhtunkhwa and Karachi, and prepare the report about the human rights violations without the Pakistani pressure and submit it to the UN General Assembly.
