In a fresh case of brutality against the activists raising voice for the cause of missing persons, Pakistan intelligence agencies have abducted Sindhi youths from their houses. In a first incident, they raided the home of the late Razzaq Shar and forcibly abducted his son Bashir Shar on April 28.

They also assaulted the mother and sisters of Bashir who opposed the abduction. Explaining the ordeal, Bashir’s brother said that on August 16, 2020, he was also abducted along with Bashir and was alone released after over five months. Bashir, then 16-year-old minor, was implicated in terrorism cases and was incarcerated for over two and half years before being released on January 38, 2023. The only reason for their abduction was their acquaintance with the cause of missing persons. He said that he use to go to the camps for missing persons and participate in the protests.

He said that Bashir was not involved in activism and after his release, he left the city for work. Bashir recently returned for his brother’s marriage and was abducted by Pak intelligence.

Additionally, at 5 p.m. the same day, Sindhi Nationalist Darya Khan Brahmani from Karachi was also abducted by Pakistan intelligence agencies.

Jeay Sindh Freedom Movement, the Sindhi Nationalist organisation fighting for Sindh’s independence, has condemned the coward act of abducting Sindhi youths by Pak intelligence agencies and termed it as “state terrorism”. Chairman of the organisation, Sohail Abro urged the international organizations including international human rights organizations to take action against the violation of human rights in Sindh and Balochistan by the Pakistan Army, take notice and release the national activists.
