Forced disappearance growing in Balochistan, says Bugti

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.

Focusing on the Pakistan Army's ongoing genocide, Bugti said that enforced disappearances and killings of indigenous Baloch have remained unstoppable in the province.

"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.

The people in Balochistan are living in poverty, and they have no access to the basic needs like drinking water and food.The region has no facilities for good education and healthcare also.

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".

Balochistan is the hub of China's multi-billion dollar project called China-PakistanEconomic Corridor (CPEC). China has developed Gwadar Port in Balochistan to supply its goods to European market.

Bugti accused China and Pakistan of jointly looting resources of Balochistan whereas the locals are living in poverty.

"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".
