July Report: 80 operations, 81 abductions, 31 dead bodies found in Balochistan. Dil Murad Baloch
80 operations were conducted by the Pakistani Army in July whereas 81 people were abducted and thirty-one dead bodies were found from Balochistan as a result of these operations.
The Information & cultural secretary of Baloch National Movement (BNM) Dil Murad Baloch published the monthly report of July and stated that there have been many claims of Baloch Missing persons being released for the last few months but if we just look at the report of July then we will be able to comprehend the fact that it is a false claim. Based on the ratio of new enforced disappearances and released persons one can easily judge whether enforced disappeared people are being released or more people are being abducted.
He said that just a glance on the statistics of July show how horrifically Pakistani forces have been carrying out enforced disappearances without any impedance. There were 81 forcibly disappearances in this month and another 30 dead bodies were recovered from different parts of Balochistan. Six bodies were recognized to be of those people who were enforced disappeared and then killed by the Pakistani forces but the majority of the bodies were mutilated beyond recognization. The fact that the dead bodies were mutilated beyond recognization shows the vast brutality and unbearable tortures the army carries out. This has been continuing for the last 2 decades.
He said that the operations were continued in every nook and corner of Balochistan extending from Makuran to Kohistan Marri. In these 80 military operations, the Pakistani security forces looted more than 150 houses and took away more than a hundred livestock from shepherds.
45 people were released by the Pakistani agencies, among them, one was abducted in 2012, eleven were disappeared in 2017, two were abducted in 2015, one from 2016 and three of them were abducted in 2018 and 27 of them were disappeared by the Pakistani forces during the year of 2019.
Dil Murad Baloch said that mutilated dead bodies are routinely being found in different areas of Balochistan. Many dead bodies have been found near the forces’ camps, many have been found on roadsides and many more dead bodies were found from mass graves.
Shockingly the recovery of continuous unidentified mutilated bodies titled "Dasht Tera Meel" a city of unknown graves near Quetta.
Ironically dead bodies are being found daily but the state in the modern era did not bother to test the DNA of a single unknown dead body. After such an injustice, any conscious person can easily measure that the dead bodies were among those missing persons who had been abducted by the Pakistani forces during different military operations. They have been tortured, killed and then thrown to the desolated places.
Dil Murad Baloch continued and said that some parliamentarian parties are trying to take credit for the returning of missing persons, but they should have the moral courage to inform the nation that where were they kept for such long time? Under which law they have been abducted?
Unfortunately, those credit seekers have no such moral courage to tell the nation that where they have been kept for many months or years after they have been disappeared, even the recovered persons are unable to speak about the horrific and inhuman torture they have faced.
No doubt missing person issue is a human tragedy created by Pakistan in Balochistan and every missing person should be released, not a few of them.
It is also not less painful for the Baloch nation that some people use this tragedy for their political interests. In spite, this human tragedy, beyond this is being used politically to crush Baloch nation and Baloch national struggle. This is unacceptable and a moment of shame for them.
All such elements will face accountability of Baloch nation.
If this all game is to secure Pakistan from Baloch anger and hate then definitely they will not be able to tell the nation where they have been kept and why they have been barbarically tortured.
Every week someone announces that tomorrow two people will be released, from where they are getting this information? This information proved that you Parliamentarian politicians are the counterpart of Pakistan in all this process.
Dil Murad Baloch further said that the Baloch voice has reached in every corner of the world. Recovery of a few people out of thousands is not due to efforts by parliamentarians but it is because of international recognition of the Baloch national struggle.
Dil Murad Baloch said that it has been very important for solving this human tragedy that the international human rights bodies must take immediate action and fulfill their basic responsibilities.
