“Balochistan is aptly described as a virtual martial law” Munir Mengal

Bolan Times ( Geneva ): President Baloch Voice Association said ” Balochistan is aptly described as a virtual martial law, ”

During the 35th Human Rights Council Session which is running in United Nation Office Geneva Switzerland, Mengal said ” Despite of the state accession to international conventions on human rights, their participation in the UN human rights mechanisms and their lofty rhetoric of promoting and protecting human rights of its citizens, the degree and the extent of suffering and repression experienced by the Baloch people under the brutal control of the Islamic state is equivalent to being, as a “hell on earth”.

In His intervention President Baloch Voice Association added ” In Balochistan , all opinions and viewpoints that contradict state position on any issue are considered as “subversive”, and any information which directly or indirectly concerns the governance, policies and activities of the islamic state are viewed as state secret. Balochistan remained closed for much of 2016 and 2017 amid heavy military operations. Fear, intimi- dation and repression have become constant elements in the Baloch people lives. The state authorities pour in massive deployment of armed security personnel into Balochistan and impose strict and heavy police presence, intensify political education campaign of the Balochistan not only in institutions but also in the general populace, and generally stepped up vigilance and surveillance over the Baloch Peo- ple diaspora as well. The present atmosphere in Balochistan is aptly described as a virtual martial law”

Mentioning United Nation Role in Balochistan Baloch Missing person , President Baloch Voice Association said ” In September 2012, a delegation of the UN body Working Group on Enforced disappearance visited Quetta the capital city of Balochistan and met with the family members of the involuntary disap- peared persons . Although, the delegation was given a “highly controlled and censored tour” and many of the group’s questions remained unanswered. But till date the family members are looking for their loved ones. ”

On Issue of China Pakistan Economic Cooridor , Mengal said, “The security measures on the name of CPEC are viewed as a call on the ” government, military, police and to the ruling punjabi in all areas to firmly crush the political demands of the Baloch people partic- ularly defeat the voices asking to regain their soverignity on their land and had waged war on people to maintain stability in the region”.
