Another Eid and another protest for missing persons
The protest on Eid-day in front of the Quetta Press Club was attended by relatives of the abducted persons.
Families and friend of Baloch enforced disappeared persons have been protesting on Eid Day from last several years.
Three female family members of Safar Khan Marri also joined the demonstration. His daughter Bibi Hajira said that her father was abducted eight year ago.
She said, “Since the abduction of our father we are forced to live like orphans. Our education is finished and everything else is ruined.”
Another young participant in the demonstration, Mohammad Hyrbyair, said that several Baloch have been abducted and disappeared that is why he joined the rally of VBMP. ”We Baloch are celebrating Eid with simplicity,” He said.
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons Vice-Chairman, Mama Qadeer Baloch, speaking to the media said that no progress has been made to address the issue of enforced disappearances in Balochistan so far.
He said that because of this situation they are forced to protest even on Eid Day.
The current government of parliamentarians nationalists in Balochistan has included the issue of enforced disappeared in their priorities but Mama Qadeer said that the current regime could not bring any change and military operations and disappearance continue as usual.
