In a disturbing turn of events, Sabghatullah Sarparah, a resident of Chaghi, Pak-occupied-Balochistan, was forcibly disappeared from his residence on November 21, 2023, just a day after his wedding. This incident has raised grave concerns about his safety, particularly amidst the alarming trend of fake encounters in the region.

Sarparah’s disappearance is not an isolated incident. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has documented hundreds of cases of enforced disappearances in Pak-occupied-Balochistan, with many of these individuals never being seen again. These disappearances have cast a shadow of fear and uncertainty over the lives of Baloch people, who are constantly at risk of being abducted by the Pak Army without any due process.

The Baloch people have long been subjected to systematic oppression and discrimination by the Pakistan Army, and Sabghatullah Sarparah’s enforced disappearance is a stark reminder of the ongoing human rights crisis.

Since 27 March 1948, the Pakistan Army has been oppressing Baloch through daily home raids, disappearances, staged encounters, target killings, torture, humiliation at checkpoints, and kidnappings for ransom. The Pakistan Army is targeting and monitoring Baloch people, and anyone who has the potential to raise questions is either killed or abducted.

The fate of Sabghatullah Sarparah hangs in balance, and the silence of the international community is deafening. The Baloch people demand justice for Sarparah and an end to the systematic persecution they face.
