Balochistan: 4 persons including two journalists go missing


 

Four people have been reported missing from Qillah Abdulla and Kharan districts of Balochistan, on Sunday.

According to details, two journalists affiliated with private media outlets were abducted from Chaman, a border town in Balochistan’s Qila Abdullah district.

As per the sources, the abducted journalists are affiliated with news channels broadcasting in Pashto and Urdu.

Saeed Ali Achakzai, former president of Chaman Press Club and senior reporter of Samaa News and Abdul Mateen Achakzai of Khyber News have been missing since last evening.

Journalists’ organizations have condemned their abduction and demanded immediate and unconditional release of both journalists.

Pakistan is one of the most dangerous countries for fair and transparent journalism. In the 2019 Reporters sans frontières (alias Reporters Without Borders) press freedom index, Pakistan ranked at 142 out of 180 countries.

Moreover, national and international journalists have been incapacitated, threatened, abducted and even killed. Human rights groups acknowledge that the media censorship in the region including Sindh and Balochistan is “abysmal”.

Owing to its “acute media restrictions” and “suppressed freedom of speech”, Balochistan, in particular, has earned the sobriquet of ‘Pakistan’s information black hole’ in the international media.

In another news, Pakistani forces allegedly raided a house in Lijje area of ​​Kharan district, arrested two youths and transferred them to an undisclosed location.

The missing persons include Din Mohammad son of Kashmir Mohammad Hasani and Liaqat son of Wadera Mohammad Karim Sasoli.

Abductees from Kharan

The families of the missing have appealed to human rights organizations to play a role in securing the release of missing youth.

The issue of missing persons in Balochistan has become a serious problem. As per the reports, almost every day, Pakistani forces and intelligence agencies carry out raids and operations in different areas and disappear people after arrest.

Political and social circles in Balochistan are strongly condemning the resurgence of enforced disappearances.

On the other hand, peaceful protests have been going on in Quetta and Karachi for a decade for recovery of missing persons

A ‘European Silk Road’

The German version can be found here.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 the Caspian Sea litto…
