Persecuted in their own lands by the Pakistan Army, the members of Baloch Republican Party (BRP) and Baloch Republical Students Organisation (BRSO) on Tuesday (10 December) held protests in the South Korean city of Busan against the gross human rights violations by the Pakistan Army in Balochistan, reports Asian News International (ANI).
Protesting against the unending extra-judicial killings and abductions of Baloch citizens in Pakistan, the protesters called for a free Balochistan, asking the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to wake up and take action against the human rights violations by Pakistan Army.
It should be noted that the protests were held on the International Human Rights Day. BRP leader Amir Baloch said that the protests were held to raise voices against the incidences of abduction of women and children by Pakistani Army in Balochistan.
As per Baloch National Movement’s Central Information Secretary Dil Murad Baloch, in the month of October 2019 alone, the Pakistani Army has carried out a total of 28 operations as a result of which 30 Baloch citizens have disappeared, while 25 dead bodies have been found in the province.
