Sindh: Pakistani forces attack the camp of Baloch IDPs Khairpur

KHAIRPUR: Members of military’s civilian death squad and Pakistani forces attacked the camp of Internally Displaced refugees in Khairpur city of Sindh on Tuesday.

According to details, the raid was carried out in Shadi Side region where the poor Bugti Baloch IDPs were living in their temporary makeshifts.

The Pakistani forces reportedly harassed Baloch women and children during the raid and abducted aged Nawab Deen Bugti Baloch.

It is worth mentioning that more than 250,000 Baloch forced to flee their native townships and villages from Dera Bugti and Kohistan Marri region of Balochistan during dictator Musharraf’s era when he started an all-out war against Baloch people after seizing power through a military coup in 1999.

According to a rough estimate, more than 14,000 Baloch fled to neighbouring Afghanistan where they have been living as political refugees.

Pakistani forces and their agents have attacked the camps of Baloch refugees in Sindh, Punjab and even in Afghanistan killing several innocent Baloch.

Pakistan has prevented international humanitarian organisations from supporting the Baloch IDPS who continue to live under appalling conditions.

Baloch refugees in Afghanistan complain that the UN(HCR) and other International Human Rights Organisation have overlooked their plight and many Baloch families despite being registered with UN are not receiving any proper support whereas the majority of them have  not even been registered and recognised refugees yet.
