UN urged to send a fact finding mission to Balochistan to observe
human rights violations
Germany: The Baloch Community in Germany have
held a protest demonstration in köln dom city on Saturday. The protest
was aimed to bring the plight of Balochistan to the attention of
The protestor, including women and children, held placard inscribed in
English and German languages to appeal the International Community to
help stop Baloch genocide, recognise the sovereign status of Balochistan,
free the abducted Baloch activists and stop disappearances. The
protester also briefed the media persons about Pakistani state
atrocities in Balochistan and distributed pamphlets to people passing by
in three different languages.
The English pamphlet reads as follows: “From
the occupation of their land (Balochistan) by Pakistan in 1948, the
Baloch nation is facing inhuman atrocities by the religious
fundamentalist state. In order to strengthen their hold on mineral rich
and strategically important region, the Pakistani authorities have been
using brutal force to suppress the Baloch national struggle for
regaining of their sovereignty. The persistent assimilation policies of
Pakistani state -founded on classical colonial pattern-are responsible
for a situation where the Baloch identity as a nation is in grave
danger. Pakistan has been exploiting and plundering the resources of
Balochistan since the very beginning. With the exploitative policies of
the state, the Baloch are living below the poverty line while their land
is among one of the richest in the world.
“The Baloch have been raising voices against the exploitation of their
resources and assimilation of their thousand years old cultural identity
into a so-called Pakistani Islamic national identity. They have never
accepted the occupation of Balochistan. The Baloch national resistance
aimed at freedom of Balochistan and dignity of their people. To suppress
the Baloch national aspiration, Pakistan has used brutal force. The
fifth and the bloodiest of the military operations in Balochistan are
going on since 2002 with countless accounts of crimes against humanity
committed by the Pakistani army. It is using cluster bombs and chemicals
weapons on innocent Baloch civilian population. Thousands of Baloch men,
women, children and elderly have been killed. Hundreds of thousands have
been forced to flee from their homes.
“The present army operation has created a human tragedy. The religious
fundamentalist army of Pakistan have been carrying out genocide acts
against the Baloch. 8000 people have been abducted by Pakistani army.
Their whereabouts are not known. More than 500 hundred mutilated bodies
of the Baloch students, doctors, and engineers, intellectual, political
and social activists have been dumped on roadsides.
“Irony is that the state which is committing
worst human right abuses and crimes against humanity in 21th century is
enjoying the support of civilized world in the disguise of being an ally
in the war against terrorism. The international community should not
forget the fact that Pakistan is not only a mortal threat to the
existence of the Baloch as a national entity; it is also a threat to
whole civilized world. It is the bastion of international terror and
cause of instability in south and central Asia. With its Islamic nuclear
bomb and religious fundamentalist ideology, Pakistan remains a permanent
threat to civilized nations.
“The members of the Baloch Community in Germany are demonstrating today
to highlight the plight of the Baloch and to draw attention of the
international community and civilised world towards the crimes against
humanity committed by Pakistan in Balochistan.
“We appeal to European Union, United States and United Nation to exert
pressure on the Pakistani army to stop its inhuman atrocities on the
Baloch. The Baloch will welcome stationing international peace force in
Balochistan under UN or European Union supervision.
“We appeal to international community to send
fact finding missions in Balochistan to assess the impacts of Pakistani
military operations on Baloch civilian population.
“We appeal to the civilized world to recognise the right of independent
and sovereignty of Balochistan by supporting national struggle for
freedom of Balochistan
“We appeal to the international community to act now before it is too
late for the Baloch.”
