Speaking at the seminar organized by HRCP in Lahore, Baloch human rights activist Sadia Baloch said that the problem of enforced disappearances in Balochistan is very serious. The problem of forced disappearances is not as simple as it seems, the series of disappearances has been started to create an atmosphere of fear among the Baloch youth, neither the state is going to stop this series nor the Baloch should give up their political struggle and rights.
"We are from this Generation which has been massacred before, our previous Baloch students' leaders Zakir Majeed, Zahid Baloch, Shabir Baloch are still missing, some have been killed," Sadia Baloch said.
She said that unless the ruling forces of this country would not have the desire, and dialogue, would not take the issue of forced disappearances seriously, its solution is not possible, several Prime Ministers have passed, made claims, and promises. The Enforced disappearances mostly involve our educated youth, our degrees have become a death warrant for us, and our mothers are always in fear of when their sons will be forcibly disappeared or extrajudicially killed.
Baloch women are always active, Sadia says that she is just coming from a sit-in, where for fifty days, Baloch women have been protesting day and night for the recovery of their brothers, fathers or family members. Girls like Sami and Seema are a beacon for other Baloch girls and women, when they come out to fight, others will also come out to recover their loved ones.
She said that this is not the first time when we come across floods, due to climate change and living in a region where floods occur every few years, the state does not allow volunteer work in flood-prone areas. The notification also came yesterday that no one can support or work without NOC.
In the area I belong to, Jhal Magsi, where people are facing hardships due to climate change, but a state that cannot build a road, how to rescue our people from the severity of climate change and storms? The part of Balochistan where the flood has caused more destruction is called the green belt, where the elite tribesmen of the state live, who do not care about the life and death of the common people, they would have filled their warehouses by now. But the general public is still starving.
