Around 21,000 people have gone missing in Balochistan, claims Baloch activist Mama Qadeer, adding that they had received 6,000 mutilated bodies to date. "Why are political parties silent on the issue of Balochistan?"

Qadeer was speaking at a press conference held by the Baloch student organisation Azad and Baloch Voice of Missing Persons (BVMP) at Karachi Press Club on Thursday.

"The 13 people killed by the Frontier Corps (FC) in Turbat on Monday were not militants but nationalists, who were kidnapped by some agencies some time ago," he alleged. "The FC claims that they killed militants but these were extrajudicial killings."

About the killings of 20 labourers, including Sindhis, in Turbat on Saturday, he said that the Baloch Liberation Army was not involved in the incident. "The agencies killed them in order to create differences between the Baloch and Sindhi people."

SuchindranathAiyerS | 9 years ago | Reply This is one of those festering wounds like the persecution of the Shias in the oil producing district of Saudi Arabia that the strident and influential Western Governments and Media have covered up. I doubt that India has the means or the ability to do anything overtly military. A small covert expedition, perhaps? If India finds some real diplomats, then India could mount an offensive against Pakistan over and above the Pakistani-Islamic-US-Chinese din of Kashmir and persecution of minorities in India. It occurs to me that India has ham strung itself with its grotesque Constitution to a point where persecution of the real minorities (Caste Hindus) has become a vice to be covered up in public for which the tacit acceptance of the Islamic-Christian-Dalit Western version of India's "persecution" come in handy for those who wish to use the levers of Indian Power to enrich and pamper themselves with minimal rocking of the boat. This leaves Iran, which has also been hamstrung by Sunni (Saudi) Pakistan ally US. Human Rights is the first casualty of Global Carpet Bagging (which the US leads), and Religion (which the Islamic Caliphates engineer)
