On the occasion of Eid al-Adha, families and supporters of forcibly disappeared Baloch individuals plan to hold a protest sit-in at Shaheed Fayaz Chowk to demand the recovery of their loved ones subjected to enforced disappearances by Pak security forces.

The protesters, including families of missing persons like Muslim Arif, Fatah Miar and Jehanzeb Fazal, are the victims of the Pak Army’s brutal widespread practice of abducting and illegally detaining Baloch activists, students and civilians. This highlights the Army’s brutal suppression of Baloch rights and its campaign of violence against the ethnic Baloch community.

After Eid prayers in the morning, the protesters will stage the sit-in at Shaheed Fayaz Chowk. Later in the evening at 5pm, they plan to march in a rally towards the Press Club to further raise awareness about their cause and missing relatives.

Political parties, human rights groups and the general public have been urged by protest organizers to participate and show solidarity with the families’ struggle against the Pak Army’s human rights abuses through enforced disappearances in occupied Balochistan since 1948.
