In what is deemed as utterly shameful incident, the Pakistan security forces have abducted the sister of proclaimed Baloch leader Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch. The abduction was done as a part of military operation that took place in Balochistan’s Mashkay area.
As per details reported by The Balochistan Post, Dr. Nazar’s sister Noor Khatoon was arrested and taken into custody by the Pakistani security forces while his cousin Khair Bakhsh was ruthlessly murdered and dumped.
It is to be remembered that the atrocities done on the family members of the Baloch leader is not a first time incident. Last month, Dr. Nazar’s wife and children were arrested by the Pakistan security forces. However, it was amid tremendous pressure from the Balochistan province that they were returned unharmed to the leader.
In fact, what may startle many is the fact that Pakistan army has previously abducted and ruthlessly murdered many of the relatives and family members of Dr. Nazar in a bid to subdue the revolution in the area. Women and children have also not been able to escape the ruthlessness showcased by the Pakistan security forces in this matter.
Meanwhile, the incident has received strong condemnation from the President of Baloch Republican Party Brahumdagh Bugti. In a statement issued by him on Twitter, he said:
Strongly condemn the abduction of Baloch women and children, including sister of Dr. Allah Nazar, by Pakistani forces in Mashkay. Forces continue to abduct women & children with impunity as the media & HR groups have become silent spectators.
Dr. Nazar, too, took to his Twitter account to further testify the atrocities carried on by the Pakistan security forces –
Pakistan Army has killed a woman, a child and 8 innocent Baloch civilians in Gajjali, Mashkay. While 60 other women are in Army custody. Our appeal to world powers is to take action against terrorist state Pakistan.
The lethal military operation started a week earlier on December 1, 2017, in Balochistan’s Mashkay area, and with time, it has intensified further. At least eight more dead bodies were brought by the Pakistan Army to a local hospital on December 6, which public outrage was still underway.
