HR council condemns murder of Baloch politician’s relatives by Pak ArmyDecember 3rd, 2010 - 12:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 3 (ANI): Baloch Human Rights Council (UK) has condemned the “brutal and inhuman act” of the Pakistan Army, who reportedly bombarded a Baloch politician’s house and killed five people there.
“Baloch Human Rights Council (UK) condemns in strongest words the brutal and inhuman act of the Pakistani Military in Turbat (Balochistan) on 1st December 2010,” said a press release issued by General Secretary Samad Baloch.
According to it, “the army bombarded the house of the Balochistan National Party central committee member Waja Ayub Jan and killed his two sons Murad and Zubair and three of their friends Hasil, Majid and Hammal in front of hundreds of people and in the presence of local administration who looked helplessly while the house was being bombarded.”
“BHRC believes that this is the continuation of the state policy to annihilate or intimate the Baloch Leadership into submission by using such inhuman tactics. It should be noted that Waja Ayub Gichki is the uncle of the Baloch Nationalist Leader and Chief of the Balochistan National Party Sardar Akhtar Jan Mengal,” said the release.
It noted that the “Pakistani Authorities have increased the genocide actions against the Baloch” in recent months by murdering dozens of Baloch nationalist leaders, students and political activists.
“BHRC considers the situation in Balochistan as very grave. We appeal to all who have influences upon Pakistani military who is the actual ruler of the country to immediately take actions in order to save the lives and dignity of the Baloch in Balochistan,” it added. (ANI)
