While addressing the rally, president of BRP swiss chapter, Sher Baz Bugti, vice president Qadir Bugti, and Secretary General Mohammad Nawaz Bugti, condemned Pakistan’s war crimes such as the abduction of Baloch women and children.
“Objective of our protest rally and demonstration on this especial occasion of International women’s day is to highlight and expose forceful disappearance of Baloch women and other crimes by the Pakistani forces in Balochistan”, Mr. Bugti said.
Sher Baz Bugti further said that the aim of the protest rally is to raise awareness about the serious violation of Human Rights and the abduction, detention, and oppression of Baloch women particularly from Dera Bugti, Kohistan Marri, Bolan, and Mashkay.
Furthermore, he said that the world is celebrating international women’s day and focusing on the right of every woman as well as their social importance, but unfortunately, Baloch women are continuously suffering under the state terrorism even on this especial day.
“From the beginning of this year, more than 200 Baloch women were abducted along with their children, from Dera Bugti, and now same is the case in Mashkay and other parts of Balochistan where army abducts Baloch women and children in hundreds during the military operations”, he said, adding that family of the abductees is not even allowed to protest for the safe release of their beloved ones who are still missing for months.
He said, on one hand, Pakistan speaks about ending violence against women, and on the other hand, its brutal army continues to abduct and torture Baloch women. Mr. Bugti said there have been a significant rise in atrocities and serious Human Rights violations against Baloch People by the Pakistani army and it’s a new plane introduced to target specifically Baloch women, which could be very dangerous. He appealed Human Right Organizations to take notice of missing Baloch women and to play an effective role in releasing of Baloch women who are suffering under the custody of Pakistan’s terrorist army.
