Tensions are escalating in the Malir area of Karachi as reports emerge of violent raids conducted by Pak security forces on the homes of Baloch political activists and members of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Karachi faction.

According to the spokesperson for the Baloch Yakjehti Committee, the raids and use of force against Baloch civilians are part of the Army’s ongoing policy of “Baloch Genocide”. The oppression has historically been used to suppress the Baloch people, with the brutal behavior of security forces in Karachi being a continuation of the policy of genocide. From Lyari to Kech to Koh-e-Suleman, the Baloch nation is facing “the worst form of state aggression”.

In Jinnah Pur, Malir, raids were conducted by Rangers and puppet police on the homes of MQM Karachi members, with reports of firing incidents and violence targeting women and other individuals. The siege by the forces in the area is ongoing.

The Baloch Unity Committee Karachi has condemned the raids and firing, warning of a strong response if any of their members were harmed or subjected to extrajudicial actions. They have vowed to announce a course of action soon.

Separately, the residence of Baloch activist Akram Baloch in Malir is also under attack, with dozens of Pak military personnel surrounding and continuously firing upon his house.

Earlier in Feb, the Pak Army forcibly entered a residence without any warrant in Karachi’s Lyari Saeedabad and assaulted Baloch women and children. The incident resulted in the forceful detention and enforced disappearance of four Baloch youths by the Pak Army.

Both the Baloch Yakjehti Committee and the Baloch Unity Committee have decided to intensify public resistance against Army’s oppression and violence against the Baloch community in Karachi and other regions.

This event draws attention to the escalating tensions and occurrence of human rights abuse against the Baloch community by the oppressive Pak Army. The Pak establishment forcefully occupied Balochistan on March 27, 1948, and since then the Baloch people have been fighting against the atrocities and Baloch genocide committed by the Pak Army.
