Understanding the Baloch Genocide: Exploring its Consequences

Balochistan is in the chokehold of an oppressive military regime led by Pakistan, resulting in forced disappearances and extrajudicial killings. The Human Rights Department of the Baloch National Movement’s report sheds light on the dire situation in February 2024, with a staggering 33 cases of enforced disappearances reported.

Throughout February, 28 individuals were allegedly abducted and later released, showcasing the arbitrary nature of these actions. Additionally, five individuals were falsely labeled as attackers and killed, perpetuating a false narrative of Baloch insurgency.

The ‘Voice for Baloch Missing Persons’ highlights the discrepancy in reported numbers, with 7,000 cases documented since 2004 compared to the government’s acknowledgment of 2,752 ongoing cases. This emphasizes the urgent need for transparency and impartial investigation into enforced disappearances in Balochistan.

The conflict in Mach resulted in the unjust labeling of five individuals as attackers and their subsequent extrajudicial execution, revealing the dangerous environment faced by the Baloch populace. The international community must unite to address these violations of human rights and demand justice for the Baloch people.

Despite the Pakistan Army’s efforts to quell unrest, pro-freedom groups like the Baloch Liberation Army continue their fight for liberation. Their operations have yielded results, leading to the seizure of military posts and weapons. Experts believe these groups will persist until the suppression and oppression end, challenging the Army’s control in governance and security.
