Pakistan used gunship helicopters against our people: Baloch party in UNHRC

The Baloch leader called for the council to take immediate measures to stop the systematic genocide of Baloch people by Pakistani state.



United Nations: Calling for United Nations Human Rights Commission's intervention to stop human right violations in Balochistan, the Baloch Republican Party has accused Pakistan of carrying out a systemic genocide.

Abdul Nawaz Bugti, representative of Baloch Republican Party in UNHRC, said, “Worsening human rights situation in Balochistan requires immediate attention of HRC.”

“Enforced disappearances and custodial killings of Baloch political activists by Pakistan security forces have intensified in last several weeks,” he alleged.

“Pakistani forces claimed to have arrested over 13000 people from Balochistan since 2015 but not a single case was brought in any court of law,” he said, adding, “This further exposes the impunity with which the Pakistani forces operate and carry out a systematic genocide in Balochistan.”

He also alleged the attack helicopters were used by Pakistani forces against Balochi civilians, killing over 100 people including women and children.

“We welcome the statement by Indian Prime Minister and permanent mission of India to highlight Pakistan atrocities in Balochistan,” Bugti said.

The Baloch leader called for the council to take immediate measures to stop the systematic genocide of Baloch people by Pakistani state.
