Rashid Hussain’s mother alleges UAE abducted her son at the behest of Pakistan.
Mother of a missing person Rashid Hussain said in statement “I am the mother of Rashid Hussain Baloch, my son Rashid was abducted by UAE intelligence agencies at the behest of Pakistan. Sheikh Mohammed, who had been befriending Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, abducted my son and deported him to Pakistan after six months of detention in UAE.
She stated, in duration of two and half years of his disappearance, he hasn’t been seen by his family or lawyer, neither in Pakistan nor in Dubai.
Rashid’s mother said that Rashid’s extradition report was broadcast by three Pakistani TV channels. Now we have advocated for him in Pakistan. I go everywhere including Quetta, Karachi, but no information is available regarding him.
She appealed that now in the days of this outbreak, I appeal to Sardar Akhtar Mengal, along with representatives of the government of Pakistan, to play their role in bringing Rashid Hussain to the fore.
“I am a mother, as a mother I should be allowed to meet Rashid, his lawyer should be allowed to meet him”,
“I appeal that all the missing Sindhis, Pashtuns and Balochs, including Rashid Hussain, be recovered in the days of this outbreak”, she urged.
She said that we are being told to stay at home during this pandemic what we are compeled because our children are forcefully disappeared. I call on all human rights activists to raise their voice for recovery of the missing persons so that their families can escape the pain of their loved ones. United Arab Emirates officials should take actions in this regard because they have abducted my son.
Rashid Hussain, a Baloch human rights activist, was arrested in December last year by UAE authorities but has not been produced before a court. Amnesty International has demanded multiple times for him to be released or produced before the court.
A member of European Parliament, Human Rights Watch and several rights organizations demanded information about Rashid from UAE but no response has been received yet.
