Dealing a substantial blow to the Pakistan Army, stirring visuals from Lyari and Malir in Karachi are making waves. Thousands participate in a sit-in protest, responding passionately to the call of the Baloch Yakjehti Committee. The BYC’s call, a clarion cry for justice, has not only resonated within the Baloch community, but ignited a fire across the entire nation.

This surge of support comes even after the Sindh Police’s, puppets of the oppressor Pak Army, brazen attempt to block the Baloch Yakjehti Committee’s rally from moving forward.

In a demonstration of solidarity with the people of Pak-occupied-Balochistan, residents of Lyari and Malir in Karachi took to the streets on Friday to protest against ongoing enforced disappearances in the province. The peaceful protest included women and children, and highlighted the growing concern about human rights violations in Pak-occupied-Balochistan.

The protest was met with resistance from Karachi police, who detained some participants. This action has raised concerns about freedom of assembly and due process in the region. But, these events mark the third phase of protests called on by the Baloch Yakjehti Committee against the ongoing Baloch Genocide.

The BYC’s demands are stark and clear: an end to enforced disappearances, the release of missing persons, reforms within the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), and dismantling the Army-sponsored death squads. These demands represent a desperate plea for basic human rights and a return to normalcy in a region scarred by years of conflict.

The sight of thousands marching in Lyari, a predominantly Sindhi area, signifies a growing understanding of the shared struggle for justice in Pakistan. The Baloch cause is no longer confined to the borders of the province; it has become a national conversation, demanding attention and action.
