“more then 2,50,000 Soldiers operating‭ ‬with‭ ‬complete‭ ‬impunity‭ ‬against‭ ‬Baloch ” Munir Mengal

Bolan Times ( GENEVA ) : Munir Mengal , president of Baloch Voice Association ( BVA ) said that ” The‭ ‬situation‭ ‬in‭ ‬Balochistan‭ ‬is‭ ‬far‭ ‬from‭ ‬normal.‭ ‬Approximately‭ ‬more‭ ‬than‭ ‬250,000
state‭ ‬soldiers‭ ‬are‭ ‬operating‭ ‬with‭ ‬complete‭ ‬impunity‭ ‬against‭ ‬the‭ ‬people‭ ‬of‭ ‬Balochistan.
The‭ ‬statistics‭ ‬reported‭ ‬in‭ ‬different‭ ‬media‭ ‬and‭ ‬human‭ ‬rights‭ ‬organizations‭ ‬are
heartrending ”

In his intervention which he delivered last week during 36th Human Rights Council Session in General Assembly Hall Room XX in United Nation Office Geneva, Munir Mengal added ” Only‭ ‬in‭ ‬the‭ ‬past‭ ‬six‭ ‬months‭ ‬alone,‭ ‬hundreds‭ ‬have‭ ‬been‭ ‬killed‭ ‬and
involuntary‭ ‬disappeared.‭ ‬Hundreds‭ ‬of‭ ‬military‭ ‬operations‭ ‬conducted‭ ‬in‭ ‬different‭ ‬parts
of‭ ‬Balochistan‭ ‬just‭ ‬to‭ ‬remove‭ ‬the‭ ‬people‭ ‬from‭ ‬their‭ ‬land‭ ‬which‭ ‬the‭ ‬state‭ ‬needs‭ ‬for
CPEC.‭ ‬The‭ ‬ashing‭ ‬of‭ ‬houses‭ ‬has‭ ‬become‭ ‬a‭ ‬routine‭ ‬business‭ ‬of‭ ‬the‭ ‬state‭ ‬forces.‭ ‬These
are‭ ‬irrefutable‭ ‬facts‭ ‬of‭ ‬systematic‭ ‬eliminations.”

” The‭ ‬respect,‭ ‬protection‭ ‬and‭ ‬fulfilment‭ ‬of‭ ‬human‭ ‬rights‭ ‬are‭ ‬central‭ ‬to‭ ‬every‭ ‬aspect‭ ‬of the‭ ‬everyday‭ ‬life‭ ‬of‭ ‬all‭ ‬people.‭ ‬In‭ ‬this‭ ‬regard,‭ ‬we‭ ‬share‭ ‬a‭ ‬concern‭ ‬to‭ ‬this‭ ‬Council‭ ‬and it’s‭ ‬bodies‭ ‬on‭ ‬the‭ ‬growing‭ ‬refusal‭ ‬on‭ ‬the‭ ‬part‭ ‬of‭ ‬the‭ ‬principles‭ ‬of‭ ‬protecting‭ ‬the‭ ‬rights
are‭ ‬being‭ ‬abandoned‭ ‬by‭ ‬military‭ ‬operations,‭ ‬displacement‭ ‬of‭ ‬people,‭ ‬the‭ ‬arbitrary
arrests‭ ‬and‭ ‬detentions‭ ‬of‭ ‬the‭ ‬Baloch‭ ‬people.
Inadequate‭ ‬justice‭ ‬mechanisms‭ ‬are‭ ‬enormous‭ ‬obstacles‭ ‬to‭ ‬prevent‭ ‬violations‭ ‬of‭ ‬rights.”

 

President Balouch Voice Association further added that “The‭ ‬pervasive‭ ‬impunity‭ ‬denies‭ ‬the‭ ‬possibility‭ ‬of‭ ‬making‭ ‬complaints‭ ‬and‭ ‬having independent‭ ‬investigations. The‭ ‬justice‭ ‬institutions‭ ‬are‭ ‬subjugated‭ ‬by‭ ‬orders‭ ‬of‭ ‬military‭ ‬and‭ ‬religious
fundamentalist‭ ‬groups”

” There‭ ‬is‭ ‬one‭ ‬final‭ ‬undeniable‭ ‬fact.‭ ‬No‭ ‬amount‭ ‬of‭ ‬violence,‭ ‬no‭ ‬amount‭ ‬of‭ ‬brutality,‭ ‬no amount‭ ‬of‭ ‬repression‭ ‬can‭ ‬crush‭ ‬a‭ ‬people’s‭ ‬desire‭ ‬for‭ ‬his‭ ‬basic‭ ‬right‭ ‬to‭ ‬freedom.‭ ‬This‭ ‬is a‭ ‬fact‭ ‬that‭ ‬the‭ ‬Islamic‭ ‬state‭ ‬is‭ ‬confronted‭ ‬with‭ ‬every‭ ‬day‭ ‬in‭ ‬Balochistan. It‭ ‬is‭ ‬an‭ ‬undeniable‭ ‬fact‭ ‬that‭ ‬Pakistan‭ ‬has‭ ‬unleashed‭ ‬a‭ ‬reign‭ ‬of‭ ‬terror‭ ‬in‭ ‬Balochistan”
