The criminal activities of the state have suffered people to live in the environment of fear: BSO Azad
Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) in an issued statement condemned the enforced disappearance of Baloch students, generation of environment of fear in the educational institutions and disrupting the daily living of the Baloch people including the students with strong words, and added that the powerful military institutions of the state in collaboration with the civilian institutions has kept the sequence of crackdown on the Baloch students continued.
This crackdown is gaining intensity gradually. These criminal activities of the state institutions have made people of Balochistan to live with fear. On the previous days, a student of Bahauddin Zakria University, Jihand Bangulzai son of Abdul Qayoum, was enforcedly disappeared along with his brother Hasnian and father. While the first year medical student of Government Postgraduate College Quetta, Amin son of Abdullah, was abducted and shifted to an undisclosed location on the same day. Their whereabouts are still unknown.
On Wednesday of this week, several students which include Zareef Rind, Changez Baloch, Aurangzed Baloch and other several students have been disappeared forcibly by the state forces. Forceful disappearance of several students is a proof of generation of environment of fear.
Before these incidents, the administrations of the Bahauddin Zakria University and the Neshtar University have decided to form the list of Baloch students and to send it to the state security institutions which clearly clarify that the civil institutions are fully supporting the security forces for destroying the career of the Baloch students.
Including all above, the security forces have demanded the list of the Baloch students from the hostel administration of the University of Balochistan. These all policies of state show that they want to keep the Baloch students in the status of fear, close the doors of education to them and to further strengthen its policies of prolong its occupation over the Balochistan.
Neither the state of Paksitan is trying to generate the environment of fear in the educational institutions but also the Baloch people from all walks of life are being targeted which shows their implementing of policies of wrapping the entire Baloch society in the chador of fear.
On previous days, the Ranger and white clothed personnel of the security forces have raided at several houses in the Lyari area of Karachi city and enforcedly disappeared three Baloch persons whose whereabouts are still not known.
The Spokesperson further said that the token hunger strike camp of the families of the missing persons under the flag of the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) is continued for a month for the recovery of missing persons. In this token hunger strike camp, hundreds of families which are affected of the enforced disappearance are peacefully protesting in the cold weather with their children for the safe recovery of their loved ones, but the state’s legal and parliamentarian institutions are continuously ignoring them, and we condemn this ignorance in strong words.
Ignoring the voice of the Baloch mothers and sisters by the Balochistan chief minister and the high level authorities by becoming the state machinery shows that they have nothing to do with the Baloch people, but on the other hand they are busy in belly-worshipping by becoming just the state machinery.
The spokesperson appealed to the global institutions and the international media to play their role to make reach the voices of the families of the missing persons who are setting in the token hunger strike camp to the international community, so that the Baloch people would be saved from the vandal activities of the state with the help of the civilized countries.
