Recently, the Assistant Commissioner of Turbat, Haseeb Shujaat, directed the Baloch Yakjehti Committee (BYC) to close the relief camp for Gwadar’s flood victims in Turbat immediately.

The BYC established this relief camp on Fida Chowk, Shahid Fida Road, in the district of Gwadar two days ago to provide financial assistance to the rain-affected people. According to the Committee, Assistant Commissioner Haseeb Shujaat has ordered the camp’s closure, citing the lack of a NOC to establish the camp, and has warned that if the camp is not closed down immediately, the organizers will face severe consequences.

It is pertinent to note that the police attempted to dismantle the BYC’s central relief camp in Gwadar on 8th March, but due to public outrage, the district administration stole the camp’s tent on the same night.

By impeding the efforts by BYC who are working tirelessly to help the affected citizens, the Pak Army are exacerbating the sufferings of those already struggling. It is pertinent to note that Balochistan had been forcefully occupied by the Pak Army on March 27, 1948, and since then, the helpless Baloch community has faced innumerable atrocities at the hands of the Pak Army. They have endured atrocities like daily home invasions, abductions, enforced disappearances, indiscriminate killings etc.
