Your Urgent Action needed today
Dear Supporters of Human Rights,
We need as many people as possible to email the Secretary General of Amnesty
International, London, on behalf of countless missing Baloch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please appeal to the International community,
EU, UN, US, UK and other nations to stop supporting Pakistan unless it resolves
the Balochistan issue. The support of Western countries is
directly being used against our unarmed civilians and hurting
our people. We also appeal to the International media to
report on the Balochistan conflict and press Pakistan to
allow the international media to enter Balochistan and interview
the Baloch people, especially the relatives of missing person
and those who have been victims of state sponsored brutalities.
Here is a partial list of missing persons:
1. Ehsan Arjemandi Baloch, a Norwegian citizen who went
to Balochistan to visit his family and friends in Balochistan
(Pakistani occupied), was forcibly abducted by Pakistani
Intelligence Agencies while on his way to Karachi. Mr Ehsan's
family has not heard from him since his abduction. Family members say
that Ehsan is suffering from heart disease and it very likely
that he will be tortured by Pakistani security forces.
2. Mr. Zakir Majeed, senior vice
chairperson of the Baloch Student Organisation, "Azaad
(B.S.O)" was abducted by the Intelligence agents on June 8, 2009, while he
was at the marketplace in Mastung, near Quetta, with two
other BSO members.
Plain-clothed men identified themselves
as intelligence agents working for the Pakistan Army before
taking Majeed away without informing him of any charges against
3. Another student, Miss Karima Baloch, 23, was sentenced
to three years in prison and fined Rs 150,000 (US$1,875)
by the Anti Terrorist Court (ATC) in Turbat, Balochistan,
on June 2, 2009, after she and several others women had
demonstrated in August, 2006, against disappearances. She
was charged with defiling the flag of Pakistan and with sedition.
4. Dr. Deen Mohammad Baloch, a young Baloch doctor,
was abducted on June, 29, 2009, from his official residence
in Ornarch Hospital. He is also a member of a Baloch political
party BNM (Baloch National Movement).
His children say that he was the only earning hand of the family and after
his arrest the children could not even afford to go to school.
5. Chakar Qambar
Baloch, another young Baloch student, was arrested in Quetta on
July 10, 2009. After two nights of severe torture he has been charged
with anti-state activities. But his family and friends say that he is
one of the brightest students in his class and has never been involved
in militant activities. His only fault is that he raised his voice against
the abduction of his fellow student leader Mr. Majeed Baloch. That is
why he has been arrested and charged. He missed his exams and his career
has been ruined.
6. Mr. Jalil Reki Baloch, the central
information secretary of BRP (Baloch Republican Party), was
abducted by Intelligence Agencies of Pakistan on 13 February,
He is still missing and family and beloved ones have not
heard from his since his arrest.
7. Master Yahya was
abducted from Noshki, Balochistan, on 11 August, 2008.
His whereabouts are not known to his family and friends.
His beloved ones do not know about his condition. An anonymous source
reports that Mr Yahya is being held
in Army Cantt in Quetta.
8. Iqbal Baloch was abducted
from Mand, Balochistan, on 14 March, 2007, along with two
other friends. His friends were later released, but
Iqbal Baloch is still missing. Mr Iqbal's mother recently
passed away due to
the shock of his disappearance.
The list of missing Baloch activists is so long,
as there are thousands of Baloch who are either missing or
languishing in Pakistani jails accused of crimes they did
