The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad expressed grave concerns over the Mustang girls’ school incidents, and further said that the women in Balochistan are being kept at a distance to education under a designed conspiracy. Before these incidents, incidents of acid attacks and several other incidents of attacks on women have occurred in Balochistan as well.      


More than 400 girls have been affected due to the mysterious chemical spray in three different girls’ schools in Mustang during last 10 days. These incidents have suffered parents of students in extreme psychological pressure and fear and caused them to stop sending their children to schools.


The Spokesperson further said that the religious extremists have tried to keep the women away from education through their threatening pamphlets in different areas of Balochistan before these incidents while the administrations of those relevant educational institutions have faced threats too.


The University Bus of Sardar Bahadur Khan Women University Quetta was attacked through explosive devices in June 2013 which killed several students while threatening pamphlets of similar nature were distributed in educational institutions of Panjgur in 2014. In Mustang, threatening pamphlets have been distributed for keeping girls away from education two months ago. The state has fully ignored all these incidents and this deliberate ignorance of these incidents indicate that the state of Pakistan is directly involved in promotion of religious extremism in Balochistan.


The state wants to complete its requisite objectives through the promotion of religious extremism. For the implementation of its heinous policies, the state is targeting girls in order to keep them away from education and these are the attempts to take the Baloch society towards conservatism and religious extremism.    


The spokesperson told the Baloch people that the state is promoting the religious extremism since day one in order to affect our progressive thoughts, national history and national civilization. Therefore, we should understand the state conspiracies and struggles against them consciously.
