Black hole of enforced disappearances in Balochistan



By: Yassir Baloch

The most disturbing aspect of the situation in Balochistan is the sharp increase in human rights violations. The most harrowing of all human rights violations are enforced disappearances. It has become an explosive issue given that more people have gone missing, especially nowadays, once again the umbrella is on Baloch students. The recent abduction of Wahab Baloch, central committee member of Baloch Students Action Committee (BSAC) along with Feroz Baloch, Majid Baloch and Jamil Baloch. Undoubtedly thousands of Balochs are missing. Enforced disappearance is not a new tactic of the state to drop political dissent.

Ironically, on 16 October 2017, Pakistan became one of the 15 states elected as members of the United Nations Human Rights Council. In its election pledge, Pakistan resolved to uphold, promote and safeguard human rights and fundamental freedom for all, yet the enforced disappearances continue to exist at home.

Let’s ask authorities, have they gone through the declaration upon the protection of all citizens? Who had to undergo the point of enforced disappearances due to the General Assembly resolution 47/133. Therefore, I am stating the Article resembles the situation now we are going through on the line of repression.

Article 7, No circumstances whatsoever, whether a threat of war, a state of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, which might be involved to prove enforced disappearance.

Are Baloch students a national security risk? Are the demands of Baloch students unconstitutional? It appears that seeking the path of education is the only crime they are committing.

However, democratic parties or nationalist parties failed to take effective legislature or other measures to prevent and terminate the acts of enforced disappearance in Pakistan. Indeed, in Balochistan there is a flagrant violation of human rights and fundamental freedoms proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In the end, being a member of Baloch Students Organization, I stand in solidarity with BSAC and all Baloch missing persons and demand their recovery.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
