She further emphasized, "We want to convey to the country's caretaker Prime Minister that we are not mad people crying on the streets. We come out with a pain, but the rulers of this state are not affected by our cries. We have used all means of protest, but there is no attention to cases of enforced disappearances in this state."

Please, give us news of Shabeer." Relatives of other Baloch Missing Persons individuals also participated in the protest and addressed the gathering. In her speech, Amna Baloch, Organizer Of BYC Karachi said, "The issue of enforced disappearances is an extremely serious matter that Pakistan has never taken seriously.

However, they vehemently opposed the prolonged enforced disappearance of an individual without any charges.
