QUETTA: Hundreds of activists from the Baloch Students Organisation (Azad), staged a demonstration in Turbat city on Saturday to protest the military operation in Balochistan and violence against missing persons – whose bullet-riddled bodies have been found throughout the province.

BSO leaders criticised Baloch nationalist parties, including National Party and Balochistan National Party – Mengal for gearing up for elections,  “How can these parties claim to be heirs of martyred Baloch youth while they try to appease their masters?” they questioned.

Furthermore, they criticised the media for not highlighting security forces’ brutalities against common people of Balochistan.

    BLA is a terrorist organization. These students need economic opportunities…..they need access to better education in the best uiversities and colleges of Pakistan. They need scholarships, they need a fresh start. Get them out of Balochistan.

    @Nauman I dare you to go and say those exact words to the members of BSO (A). If BLA is a terrorist organization supported by India then why doesn’t Pakistan provide the world with proof? What’s stopping them?.
    BLA is a reactionary force which has it’s roots in the masses not some foreign funded James Bond style world conquering organization as you so wrongly believe and they are demanding for an end to the operation not a hand out why is it so hard for Pakistanis to understand this?????
