Subject: Gross Human Rights Violation in Balochistan

The Baloch Republican Party (BRP) requests your kind attention in respect to The ongoing Human Right Violations in Balochistan. Pakistan conducted five major military offensives on the occasion of 1948, 1958, 1963, 1973 and the latest phase started in January 2000 when the military dictator retired General Prevez Musharraf declared war against Baloch people. This last phase has been the most brutal after 1973 and the Baloch also consider this phase as the most crucial for their survival.

On January 25, 2014, a shepherd in a rural area of Khuzdar district in Balochistan discovered a mass grave. After excavating the area, a number of mass graves were found in the Tutak village in khuzdar containing remains of more than 100 dead bodies. The more they dug the more mass graves they found.

Human rights groups have expressed fear that these remains belong to the victims of enforced disappearances, as Pakistani security forces have been involved in a massive campaign of enforced disappearances and kill and dump operations since last many years in Balochistan.

Since Pakistan had committed the crime of aggression by invading Balochistan on 27th March 1948, the Baloch have been struggling to restore the independence of their homeland. However, to crush their movement, Pakistani security forces have violated all human rights fundamentals. The abductions or the enforced disappearances by Pakistani forces in Balochistan mainly target the cream of the Baloch society i.e. the educated youth, political activists, teachers, lawyers, poets, intellectuals and enlightened people belonging to every walk of life.

After the martyrdom of Nawab Akber Khan Bugti 1,20,000  bugti were forced to leave their homes and 16,000 even left Balochistan to take shelter in Afghanistan , which they are living in terrible condition without any international human aids. Baloch civilians who have migrated to Afghanistan because of the inhumane atrocities of the state against them in Balochistan are continually being targeted by the state forces.

The  International organizations for refugees including the United Nations have turned a blind eye toward the sufferings of Baloch refugees in Afghanistan who were forced to migrate from their homeland by the state forces because of continued military operations, target killings and forced-disappearances.
Pakistani security forces extended it’s ongoing  military operations in Turbat , Panjgur , Mashkai , Awaran , khuzdar , Naseerabad , Dera Bugti and many other areas of Balochistan.

However, the recent discovery of mass graves has sent shockwaves throughout the Baloch society, as they fear Pakistan has killed most of the 18,000 victims of enforced disappearances and dumped their bodies in mass graves. 
Baloch Republican Party(BRP) Germany request with all the other EU members and UN  to send a mission to investigate the issue of mass graves as it’s feared that more mass graves exist in different parts of Balochistan. Also, Germany with all the other EU members and UN  to support Balochistan independence.

Thank you
Yours Truly
Ashraf Sherjan                                                                                                       
President of Baloch Republican Party (Germany Chapter)
