The cases of enforced disappearances are increasing rapidly in Balochistan. The voice of dissent is mercilessly suppressed by the military machinery. After Balochistan gained independence from British on 11th August 1947, it was illegally occupied by Pakistan in March 1948. Since then, Pakistan has used Balochistan as a colony but in more inhumane way than the British. As a result, people across Balochistan have been demanding an end to Pakistan’s colonialism in Balochistan and in order to suppress these freedom demanding voices, Pakistan has incorporated various barbaric tactics including mass killings, enforced disappearance, and unlawful detention in torture cells, among others. As of now, hundreds of innocent Baloch nationals have been either illegally detained or have been killed extra-judicially.
