Letter from Sharry Qambar, daughter
of disappeared Baloch Mr. Wahid Qambar
Sharry Qambar is the 14-year-old daughter of disappeared
Baloch Mr. Abdul Wahid Qambar.
She belongs to the Thump area of Makran region in Balochistan.
March 14, 2007 her father, Mr Wahid Qambar, was picked
up in the Thump
area by law-enforcement agencies while having a
picnic with his friend.
After being held in an unknown location
more than a year,
Military Intelligence finally
conceded his arrest and brought him before a court
smuggling. After 15 months of brutal torture,
Mr. Qambar was sentenced
to 25 years in prison on June 8, 2008.
His family claims
Qambar is very ill due the torture he suffered and
he be transferred to an outside hospital, but jail authorities
have denied him this care.
The following letter was written by Sharry Qambar in whih
she has expressed her
concerns over the visit by Ms. Asma Jhangir,
the Chairperson of Human Rights
Commission of Pakistan, to
Quetta, Balochistan, on October 2009.
To whom it may concern:
name is Sharee Qambar. I am writing this letter on behalf
of disappeared mothers whose sons and daughters were forcefully
abducted by the Army Authorities of Pakistan.The violation
of human rights
in Balochistan and the silence of human rights
activists is totally appalling. On
October 2009, Asma Jhangir visited Quetta the Capital of
investigate the gross human rights violation and to raise
of disappeared Baloch Political Activist. To us Baloch, Ms
have always outspokenly favored the Baloch cause and remained
champion of Human rights violation in Balochistan. She was
the last of hope for the more than 8000 unfortunate disappeared
political workers. But alas, our feelings were let down by
Chairperson of HRCP Pakistan. Instead of exposing the state
and barbarism unleashed by Pakistan Army on unarmed Baloch
Jhangir made mockery of Baloch peoples resistance against
the Army of
Pakistan. Ms Jhangir declined to meet the mothers and sisters
disappeared Baloch but took the liberty to ridicule the 8,000
disappeared Baloch. She had the time to openly critcize the
resistance against the Army of Pakistan but she had no time
the Prison and Torture Cells where Baloch detainees were
kept in Prison
under subhuman conditions. She had no time to visit the mothers
detained Baloch prisoners who are desperately waiting for
sons to come home. Some families of detained political workers
made a tearful request to Ms Jhangir to visit those jails
sons and daughters are being kept illegally and being tortured
mercilessly. Instead of bringing the Human Rights Violation
she bluntly stated that she would not support the resistance
for a free
Balochistan and angrily advised Baloch people that she would
the Baloch if they talk of independence of Balochistan.
After listening to Ms Jhangir, Baloch ask to the HRCP:
it is the stated policy of the Human Rights Organization
to force the
oppressed people to accept the state sponsored oppressions
and give up the the struggle for just cause?
- if the call for independance by the oppressed people against
does qualify for a Human Right?
demand on behalf of the Baloch nation to the International
Organizations of the world to take serious notice of the
by Ms Asma Jhangir and HRCP.
I also demand that Ms Asma Jhangir should immediately be
the Presidency of HRCP due to her controversial
and biased performance.
If the above mentioned steps are not taken the trust on any
Human Rights Organization by Baloch people will be
is a slow genocide of Baloch Populace is being committed
by Pakistan Army and its extension the notorious ISI and
every home in Balochistan is burning and the behaviour of
of HRCP added further fuel in this fire by enforcing her
political views on the already oppressed people.
it is the humble request to all the Human Rights Organizations
to put pressure on HRCP to stand against the slow genocide
nation in Pakistan.
