Pakistan: Baloch rights group holds march in Islamabad to highlight plights of minorities
Islamabad: The Baloch Voice of Missing Persons (BVMP) demonstrated in Pakistan capital Islamabad on Thursday to highlight the situation of minority communities in the country.
During the demonstration, they raised the issue of forced abduction, torture, and harassment of the people of Balochistan by the Pakistani agencies.
Scores of protesters were seen shouting slogans on Tuesday against the Pakistani establishment and demanding the recovery of their loved ones who have illegally abducted by the army, ANI reported.
Speaking at the protest in Islamabad, one of the Baloch victims told ANI“I am a Baloch daughter. I don’t have any affiliation with political or social organisation. I have not come here from Balochistan to deliver a speech. I can’t afford to come to the capital of the country for no reason. Unfortunately, I belong to a generation which has witnessed not but atrocities but also troubled times. You must have heard about Bosnia and Palestine but I have seen Balochistan.”
