Baluch Students Organization-Azad (BSO-A) central spokesperson expressed concerns regarding the decreasing health condition of students who are observing hunger strike till death as protest for the restoration of expelled Baluch students from Qauid-e-Azam University, Islamabad.

Central spokesperson added that the university administration, despite accepting the simple and fundamental demands of students, is playing with the lives of hunger-strike-observing students. The precious educational year of several students has been wasted due to the prolongation of this issue, but the university administration, despite resolving the issue, is prolonging it consciously.
BSO-Azad central spokesperson added that the students were previously made to the subject of gratuitous torture by police, and now, the senseless administration is playing with their lives. The health condition of Saddam Baluch, a hunger-strike-observing student, is worrisome. If the demands of the students wouldn’t be accepted on time, then the administration will be responsible for the lives of hunger-strike-observing students.

Central spokesperson said that the occupier states treat the residents of its colony like third-category citizens; Baluch youth is also facing the same behavior of the occupier. Whether the Baluch students are from Quetta, Gwadar or enrolled in Islamabad, the state always tries to deprive the students of their basic rights.

In addition, BSO-Azad spokesperson said that the personnel of Pakistan Ranger Sindh and secret agencies abducted Atta Nawaz, a Baluch human rights activist and students of International Relations, including eight students from Karachi on October 28, 2017, whose whereabouts are unknown despite passing a week.

The spokesperson said that the abductees also include a child of eight-year-old, youth of 13-year-old and 17-year-old. The abduction of these juvenile is the worst state aggression, but the human rights institutions of Pakistan and international human rights organizations have adopted complete silence in this regard, which is regrettable.

BSO-Azad spokesperson demanded to United Nations that it should play its due role for the safe recovery of disappeared human rights activist and other students. If anything goes wrong with the under custody Atta Nawaz and other students who are in the detention centers of United Nation’s member-country Pakistan, then the United Nations will also be equally responsible for it.
