very day Baloch women and men are being killed in Balochistan. How long will the human rights community tolerate this oppression? Time to take action against this oppression and bring justice to the Baloch mothers and sisters……
The murder of Qaisar Chalghari and his 6-year-old grand-daughter and the disappearance of his two young sons at the hands of the Pakistan army are continuation of the atrocities in Balochistan. The Baloch are being collectively attacked the silence of international Organisations is causing an increase in it.
Sources in occupied Balochistan told media that that Pakistani security forces raided the house of Qaisar Chilgari Marri at Nishpa in Harnai on Monday and murdered Qaisar along with his daughter, daughter-in-law and the 6-year old grand daughter Naz Bibi. The family’s two other men, Mohammad Ali Marri and Gul Dad Marri were then forcefully abducted and taken to an undisclosed location. There whereabouts are still unknown.
Local Baloch residents said that the entire family has been wiped out and there is no one left to provide further details. While it’s still not clear what sparked the raid but activists and human rights organisations allege that civilians are targeted by Pakistani forces whenever they are attacked by the Baloch armed revolutionaries.
This brutality is being widely condemned on social media and many activists urged international groups to intervene. Condemning the brutality at Harnai in occupied Balochistan, Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch the leader of Balochistan’s independence struggle said: “Pakistani barbarism and brutalities continue unabated in Balochistan.”
Khalil Baloch, Chairman Baloch National Movement said: “The martyrdom of Qaisar Chalghari & his six-years-old granddaughter & the disappearance of his two young sons at the hands of the Pakistan Army are continuation of the atrocities. The Baloch are being collectively punished & the silence of int’l Orgs is causing an increase in it.”
“This is neither the first nor the last because we are occupied by a state whose history is full of oppression and violence against subjugated nations. Pakistan wants to rule over our land forever by eradicating the Baloch people through genocide and pogroms but history has shown that nations cannot be annihilated in this way,” said the Central Spokesman of BNM (Baloch National Movement).
A local activist, on condition of anonymity said that collective punishment has been a routine in Balochistan and Pakistani security forces’ “callous and senseless brutality” at Harnai is just another addition to the long list of human rights violations and brutal raids on the Baloch people.
