Baloch Republican Party spokesperson Sher Mohammed Bugti expressed concern over growing incidents of human rights violations in Balochistan, the largest in terms of land and natural resource rich province of Pakistan.
In an estimate, over 14,000 people are missing from Balochistan who have been allegedly picked up by security agencies.
"Earlier, they (Pakistan Army and ISI) used to abduct people and put them in torture cells. Nowadays, they abduct them and throw their dead bodies on streets. The situation is worsening as Army operation has been intensified in Balochistan. Not a single day is passed when incidents of enforced disappearance and killing are not reported from the province. The situation is worsening. The security forces are carrying out the genocide", pointed out Bugti.
He said, "Balochistan is a resource rich nation but the indigenous people are living a miserable life. For example, gas reserveswere discovered in Sui area in 1952, but the locals are still using wood as fuel. They don't have any facilities like education and health".
"It has been published that people in Balochistan are living a happy life, but in reality they are still living in the Stone Age. People don't even have drinking water. They are misleading people and exploiting resources with the help of China".
