Baloch activists participate in anti-Pakistan protest in Geneva

| @indiablooms | 13 Mar 2024, 06:17 pm

The Baloch National Movement members recently hosted an anti-Pakistan protest at the Broken Chair sculpture in Geneva during the 55th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Protesters voiced ‘pro-freedom’ slogans and accused Islamabad of “gross human rights violations” in Balochistan, which is the largest yet the poorest province in Pakistan, reported ANI.

They demanded immediate release of forcefully detained Baloch people.

“The Baloch, Pashtuns, Sindhis, and Kashmiris are suffering at the hands of the Pakistan Army. We demand the United Nations to intervene and investigate human rights violations in Pakistan,” Naseem Baloch, the chairman of the Baloch National Movement said at the protest site as quoted by ANI.

“Pakistan has tested its nuclear weapons without any safety precautions in Balochistan. The local people are suffering from various diseases, and we want to convey to the world about the heinous crimes by Pakistan in Balochistan,” he added.

Razzak Baloch, Secretary-General of the Baloch American Congress, alleged that the Pakistan Army is running the country’s affairs and it needs to be driven out of Balochistan.

“We are here to protest the occupation of Balochistan. In 1947, the British created Pakistan for their purpose. That purpose is served now. They occupied Balochistan in 1948, and since then, the Pakistan army has been running the affairs of the country. We want the Pakistan army to be out of Balochistan. The Pakistan army is looting and plundering our wealth. Our people are suffering. We want Pakistan to be dismantled,” he told ANI.
