These activists include the senior leader of BSO-A, Sangat Zakir Majeed, BNM leader Dr Din Mohammad, Ehsan Arjumandi, Sammi Mengal, Mushtaq Baloch, Dr Akbar Marri and many hundred other Baloch activists. More than 400 Baloch activists have been killed and dumped whereas thousands are still languishing in Pakistani torture cells where they are facing inhumane torture and humiliation,” said the BSO-A spokesperson.

Baloch diaspora should ensure their participation in these protests so that the Baloch like others also succeed in informing the world about occupation of their motherland. The Baloch nation should let the world know that they are united in the struggle for a free Balochistan.
BSO-A cordially thanked that Baloch Community Germany for supporting the protest call.
