Baloch activist raises concern about rights violation in Pakistan at UN
Geneva: Munir Mengal, a Baloch political and human rights activist, has voiced his concerns over the ongoing rights against minority communities in Pakistan.
Speaking at the 49th session of UN Human Rights Council, Munir was quoted as saying by ANI, “No amount of violence and no amount of brutality, no amount of regression can crush the people’s desire for the basic right to freedom. Since 1948, Pakistan with a colonial mindset has unleashed a might on the people of Balochistan who refuse to surrender their most basic right — the right to regain their sovereignty on their land.”
The Baloch rights activist said the brutality of the Pakistani state has led to an unending tragedy for the people of Balochistan.
“The family members, the civil society representatives and students are continuously rallying at press clubs at Quetta, Karachi and Islamabad for the safe release of victims of enforced disappearances,” he added.
The 49th regular session of the Human Rights Council commenced from Feb 28.
It will continue till Apr 1.
