The state-backed Death Squads have spilt the blood of the Baloch across several areas of Balochistan during August this year, said Mama Qadeer Baloch, vice-chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) on Monday. “Death Squads have been formed and licensed for carrying out carnage in Balochistan. Dozens of Baloch have been shot down,” said Mama Qadeer.
The VBMP protest completed its 4,075 th day on Sunday. Israr Baloch, the general secretary of Baloch Student Organization (BSO) and several others visited the camp and expressed solidarity with the families of Baloch “Missing Persons”.
Talking to the delegation, Mama Qadeer said that the Baloch have been, and still are, a historically persecuted nation. Due to remoteness and the scant connectivity it’s not possible to deliver assistance in the wake of ‘bloody military operations’ and this results in ‘cruelty and barbarity’ across Balochistan.
Mama Qadeer explained said that devastating military operations have been carried out in Gichki and Awaran. “Pakistani forces and the Death Squads backed by them have spilt the blood of Baloch sons and dishonoured women. The said operations have expanded to Parom and Panjgur. The women and elderly are harassed and beaten regularly. However, the Baloch women are playing an important role in the Baloch struggle. No obstacle can deter the peaceful Baloch struggle,” he added.
