Hunger strike protest is going on the second day in Islamabad by the family of Rashid and Asif Baloch. Therefore, Today, on the eve of International Day of the victims of Enforced Disappearance, the families of Asif and Rasheed, along with the families of other Baloch missing persons, are putting up with a peaceful walk from the protest camp to the Islamabad press club in the capital of Pakistan.
The protester and organizer Saira Baloch tweeted that today was our second day of protest. Still, no one is listening to us except for the Pakistani Security Forces, constantly questioning with strange queries about who is missing, why you are sitting there, and when they ended the protest.
Furthermore, she added that on the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearance, be the voice for the thousands of the victims of missing persons and participate in today’s protest walk in solidarity with the families of missing persons.
The issue of enforced disappearances surfaced in early 2000 and continues till today. Since then, thousands of Baloch have gone missing, and no one knows their whereabouts. Balochistan is a black hole not only for media but also for political activism. Missing person families have been protesting in different cities in Karachi, Quetta, and Islamabad to bring awareness to their enforced disappeared victims who have been missing for years and decades.
