On the festival of Eid-ul-Adha, Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) carried out a protest rally and demonstration outside the Quetta Press Club. The rally, led by Vice-Chairman Mama Qadeer Baloch, aimed to draw attention to the ongoing issue of missing persons in Balochistan. The enforced abduction by the Pakistan army has persistently undermined the rights of Balochistan and its people, against which VBMP has been protesting for years. Students and leaders from various Baloch and human rights organizations participated in the protest. The rally, organized on the occasion of Eid, served as a poignant expression of the profound grief experienced by those whose family members are missing during such festive occasions. Unfortunately, these families continue to celebrate festivals without their loved ones due to the oppressive rule of a government and military that takes pride in oppressing the masses.
The protestors raised slogan of “haq do haq do jeene ka haq do” (give the right to live) “riyasati dehshatgardi namanzoor naamanzoor”(state sponsored terrorism is not accepted). The slogans were also raised for the release of missing persons and against the extra judicial killings of Baloch persons.
