Full Page advert in Top UK Newspaper calls for an End to Enforced Disappearances in Pakistan
24'June 2019

(Current Balochistan)

A full-page advert in a top UK news has called for an end to Enforced Disappearances in Pakistan. The advert has been published in The Times newspaper, a newspaper which is said to be “an integral and important part of the political structure of Great Britain” with an average daily circulation of 417,298.

The advert placed by the World Baloch Organisation and Baloch Republican Party reads in bold letters “ Help End Enforced Disappearances in Pakistan”, highlighting the dire human rights situation in Pakistan, urging for the end of killings, torture and particularly enforced ‘disappearances’  by the Pakistani establishment in Balochistan, Sindh and KPK.

This comes as part of a human rights awareness campaign recently jointly initiated by the groups. The campaign has consisted of various outdoor adveritisments including billboards, guerrila advertisments and social media campaigns.

Bhawal Mengal from the WBO said “Oppressed voices are constantly suppressed in Balochistan, they make sure anything happening there does not reach the ears of the outside world, they have tried there best to suppress our voices internationally as well but have not been successful at it, this advert will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people who we hope will come forward and help put an end to this carnage”.

Brahumdagh Bugti, the President of the BRP said “We hope these adverts make the international community at least look into the matter, they should stop turning a blind eye towards an issue that is in desperate need of the world’s attention. If ignored, the situation will keep getting worse and our people are the only ones who suffer”

Pakistan’s establishment has been long criticized over its practice of enforced disappearances and extra judicial killings by International bodies and local human rights organisations that dare to speak out on the issue. Before being elected as Prime Minister, Imran Khan had admitted in multiple TV interviews the involvement of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies in enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings and vowed to resign if he was unable to put an end to the practice, holding those involved responsible.

The organizers of the campaign have long been engaged in efforts to highlight the worsening human rights situation in Balochistan at international platforms, organising events around Europe and in the United States and focusing on advocacy activities in the European Parliament, the US parliamentary houses, and the United Nations.
