Baloch Republican Party switzerland chapter held a protest demonstration in front of UNHRC office Geneva, Switzerland

Baloch Republican Party Switzerland chapter held a protest demonstration in front of UNHRC office Geneva, Switzerland against enforced disappearances, kill and dump and discovery of mass graves in Balochistan.

Baloch Leader Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti, Mehran Marri, Noordin Mengal and human rights activist Mr Tarek Fatah and collages students also joined the protest and they demanded to the international community to support the democratic struggle of Baloch people for restoration of their freedom and independent homeland. The activists were protesting against the silence of the world on the genocide of the indigenous Baloch people at the hands of Pakistani state forces. 

169 bodies were recovered from three mass graves. Only three bodies had been identified by the identity cards which were found in their clothes. They were recognized as Qadir Baksh s/o Miskan, Mohammed Omer s/o Bhai Khan and Naseer s/o Bhai Khan. These three political activists were abducted by the State security forces from Awaran city at broad day light in October 2013. These three identified bodies were also enlisted with the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons. 

It is most likely that the rest of the corpses are of activists who had links with pro independence political parties. Since 2010 more than 750 Baloch activists have been victims of Pakistani State’s genocidal kill and dump policy. The protesters in geneva demanded that the Pakistani authorities be brought to international criminal court for their war crimes and crimes against humanity. They also advocated that USA should stop funding Pakistani State as Pakistan is involved in crimes against humanity.
