Melbourne: In a fresh wave of protests against the ongoing atrocities and human rights violation by Pakistan in Balochistan, the Baloch activists staged a protest here on Sunday.

The protestors raised 'stop genocide of Baloch people', 'we want peace' and 'Balochistan Zindabad' slogans during their protest.

President of Baloch National Movement in Australia, Mir Baloch, said, "We are here to protest the ongoing atrocities in Balochistan. Since five days, our senior activist's house is under siege. No one is allowed to go in or come out. They have no food or water."

"We are thankful to Indian Diaspora and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to raise the issue of human rights violation in Balochistan. We urge the international community to take the note of the situation and extend support for Balochistan."

Yesterday, the Baloch National Front staged a protest in Turbat, Balochistan, condemning the abduction of Baloch women, harassment of activists and human rights abuses being carried out by the Pakistani forces.

Earlier, Baloch Republican Party representative at the United Nations Human rights council Abdul Nawaz Bugti had stated that in different parts of Dera Bugti, people are now being abducted.

Bugti also emphasized that Pakistani forces have denied access to them including their own human rights organisations, who are not being allowed to visit them.

Earlier, welcoming PM Modi's statement on Balochistan in his Independence Day speech, several Baloch activists claimed that people of the region support him and he should take up the Baloch issue with the international community at the United Nation.
