Baloch, Sindhi and Pashtun activists lambast Pakistan Army for human rights violations

Geneva: Activists from Balochistan, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces of Pakistan have lambasted Pakistan Army for carrying out human rights violations during the 43rd session of Human Rights Council. Qambar Malik Baloch, a human rights activist from Balochistan told the Council in his intervention, “Thousands of the Baloch political activists are being illegally detained in Iranian and Pakistani prisons. The whereabouts of thousands of forcibly disappeared persons are not known. Thousands have been the victim of the kill and dump policy of the Pakistani state.” Dua Naz Kalhoro, a Sindhi political activist also blamed Pakistan and its Army for human rights violations on people in Sindh province.  She said, “We want to draw the Council’s attention to our deep concern about illegal grabbing of hundreds of thousands of acres of land of indigenous Sindhi people in Pakistan.” Shahi Sadat, a Pashtun political activist told the Council, “In Pakistan, Pashtuns and other minorities have no rights to ask the reason for extrajudicial killings, target killing, kidnapping, torture, and rape of their loved ones by the state security.” “Now the question is: Where are those human rights and women rights organizations to hear the agonizing cries of the Pashtun and Baloch women who are either used as sex slaves in  military jails or beaten to death by the so called good Taliban who are sheltered, trained, and funded by the same army?” said Sadat.
