QUETTA: Pakistan forces have abducted at least four Baloch women and three children including the wife and daughter of Dr Allah Nazar from Saryab Road area of Quetta on Monday.
According to details the Pakistani intelligence agencies raided a house in Quetta’s Saryab Road area and abducted Fazila Baloch and her 4-year-old daughter Popal Jan along with three other Baloch women and two children.
Fazila Baloch is the wife of pro-freedom Baloch leader Dr Allah Nazar Baloch whereas Popal Jan is their adopted daughter.
The other victims include Bibi Salma and her 18-month-old child Irfan, Hayal and her 2-year-old daughter Zaheerag and Gowhar Jan.
During same raid Pakistani forces also abducted 7 years old Guharam Baloch, 9 years old Meerak Baloch and 17 years old Beebarg Baloch, 18 years old Samiullah Baloch and 16 years old Shahmeer.
The Baloch National Movement (BNM) in a press statement confirmed the abduction of Fazila Baloch, other women and children. “Fazila was in Quetta for treatment after previously being wounded in Pakistani security forces bombardment on her village in Mashkay Balochistan.”
The BNM said apart from backbone discomfort she was also suffering from Post Traumatise Stress Disorder (PTSD) due to the Pakistani state brutalities.
The BNM has appealed Amnesty International, United Nations and other human rights organisations to play their role for the safe and immediate release of Baloch women and children.
The latest wave of the abductions of Baloch women and children sparked a new wave of anger among Baloch activists who took to social media to condemn United Nation for electing Pakistan as a member of United Nations Human Rights Commission earlier this month.
Previously, Pakistani forces have abducted, tortured and killed Baloch women from Kohistan Marri, Dera Bugti, Bolan, Kalat, Awaran and rest of Balochistan.
Baloch pro-freedom activists say that Pakistan is repeating the history of Bangladesh in Balochistan and the silence of UN and the rest of the International Community is encouraging Pakistan to continue its crimes with impunity.
