Naela Quadri Baloch halts deportation of women's rights activist Asma Baloch to Iran

| @indiablooms | 06 Mar 2024, 05:46 pm

Baloch women's rights activist Naela Quadri Baloch moved a petition on Monday where she urged to halt the deportation of fellow women's rights activist Asma Baloch to Iran.

Naela Quadri Baloch postd on X: "Urgent Appeal to Halt the Deportation of women rights Activist Asma Baloch to Iran - Sign the Petition!"

In a letter to the Swedish Migration Agency, as well as human rights defenders globally, Naela Baloch wrote as quoted by ANI, "I am writing to you with great concern regarding the imminent deportation of Asma MirBalochzahi, a 34-year-old Baloch political and women's rights activist, from Sweden to Iran. Asma Baloch, as she is known, has been a vocal advocate for justice and human rights in the face of oppressive regimes."

Naela Baloch said, "Throughout her stay in Sweden, Asma MirBalochzahi has been subjected to constant threats from the Iranian government, posing a grave danger to her life."

"The recent approval of her deportation by the Swedish Immigration Department is deeply concerning, as it not only places her safety in jeopardy but also runs counter to the principles of humanity and the values upheld by the European Union," she said.

"Asma Baloch's family in Balochistan is under constant pressure and threat of assassination due to her courageous political and civil activities. It is imperative that we, as advocates for human rights, stand united to prevent her deportation and ensure her safety" she wrote further in the letter.

Activist Fazila Baloch posted on X: " A Baloch citizen and a Baloch political activist, 'Asma Baloch', is facing a deportation decision by the Swedish authorities to Iran." "A humble request to the Gov't of Sweden please stop the deportation of Asma Baloch, her life will in great danger," Fazila said.
