WBWF condemn abduction of Women and Children,  urges Constitution of Commission of Inquiry by UNHRC

Vancouver - The World Baloch Women Forum (WBWF), strongly condemn abductions of women and children of two prominent Baloch leaders Dr.Allah Nazar and Aslam Baloch, and  abduction of Nawaz Ata Baloch , Information Secretary of BHRO (Baloch Human Rights Organization).

Head of WBWF Prof.Naela Quadri Baloch said "This incident is just tip of an iceberg of  Pakistani government's ongoing systematic and categorical persecution and ethnic cleansing of the Baloch people "

We are shocked and dismayed at flagrant unethical practices committed  by Pakistani security forces and Intelligence agencies against women, children and Human Rights activists, that are illegal and gross violations under International Law."

The Pakistan army's well-documented brutal use of heavy artillery against unarmed innocents, along with helicopter gunships, and its merciless acts of burning  village hutments, slaughter of unarmed civilians, rape, kidnap, torture, and extrajudicial killings are utterly incomprehensible acts of inhumanity.

WBWF urges World Governments, UN, and Human Rights groups  to take appropriate concrete steps in holding the Government of Pakistan responsible and accountable, and  demand immediate release of all abducted Baloch people. Prof Naela Quadri said "It is high time for UN to constitute a Commission of Inquiry to investigate all cases of  Enforced Disappearance and Extrajudicial killings."

WBWF calls upon all baloch , Sindhi, Pastun groups to stand united against Pakistani coercive acts and savagery.
