region where the conflict between Pakistan’s central government and indigenous people of the region took a violent shape in the early 2000’s. Thousands of political activists, poets, reporters, students, lawyers are abducted and forcibly disappeared by Pakistan military in Balochistan.

The security forces maintained parallel government and control over provincial affairs of Balochistan despite the presence of a provincial government.
A lack of accountability for serious human rights violations and crimes against humanity persisted, contributing to widespread impunity.
