Balochistan : Baloch activists blame Pakistan for human rights violations

In an attempt to draw the world's attention towards human rights violations in Pakistan's Balochistan province, Baloch activists on Friday spoke at the 37th UN Human Rights Session in Geneva and urged the world community to take action in the matter. "I would like to draw the attention of this council towards the human rights situation in Balochistan. The Baloch people continue to face worst forms of atrocities and human rights abuses at the hands of Pakistani security forces," said Abdul Nawaz Bugti, a representative of Baloch Republican Party to the UNHRC. "Enforced disappearances, torture and extrajudicial murders of Baloch political activists, human rights defenders and students by state agencies continue unabated. 173 Baloch people have been abducted by the Pakistani authorities since the start of this year and 91 people have been extrajudicially murdered," he added.
