The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) will organize a protest demonstration outside the Karachi Press Club at 3 pm on 16 February 2020 to draw the attention of the United Nations Secretary-General Mr Antonio Guterres to the grave violations of human rights in Balochistan, Mama Qadeer Baloch, vice chairman of the VBMP, said in a video message, released on social media today.


For the last eighteen years, the security forces of Pakistan have been actively involved in the enforced disappearance and extra-judicial murders of students, political activists and human rights defenders in Balochistan with impunity. In most cases, they have tortured the victims and thrown their mutilated dead bodies in desolated places, reiterated Baloch.

According to the data gathered by the VBMP, thousands of Baloch including children, the elderly and women have been picked up by the security forces outside the lawful process. The judiciary has failed to offer any remedy and the perpetration of crimes against humanity continues in Balochistan with no help in sight.

Mr Guterres is expected to visit Pakistan from 15 February, accompanied by a 14 member’s delegation.

The VBMP appealed to the marginalized religious and ethnic minorities to participate in their protest to remind the UN Secretary-General of Pakistan’s failure to live up to its pledge of respecting the UN conventions it has ratified, and to request Mr Guterres’ personal intervention in resolving the humanitarian crisis facing the people in Balochistan.

A ‘European Silk Road’

In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
