‘Stop dumping mutilated bodies’

Speakers at a seminar on Tuesday, while discussing the worsening human rights situation in Balochistan, unanimously demanded an immediate end to the ongoing security operation in the province and recovery of bullet-ridden bodies. They also called for releasing the missing persons and judicial investigation for unlawful crimes against humanity to peacefully resolve the violent Balochistan conflict.
The consensus emerged during a national seminar on ‘Human Rights Situation in Balochistan’, jointly organised by Sungi Development Foundation and Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) at a local hotel. Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo said missing persons and bullet-ridden bodies was one of the major issues in Balochistan. “The state itself has been the major violator of human rights in Balochistan and the province presents the 18th century picture, where people have no human rights at all.” He said the day the Prime minister of Pakistan announced the Balochistan package, the mutilated bodies started appearing and it still continued in the province. “The resentment of Baloch people has genuine reasons. Unfortunately, the security establishment does not have the vision and will to address the issues,” he added. “They are even not ready to accept the human rights violations.”
He said no civilian government was able to deal with the problem and they had been only interested in completing their tenures peacefully without addressing the core issues, resulting in the conflict.”
