The session, 'Unsilencing Balochistan (Take 2)', featured the chairperson of Voice for Missing Baloch Persons (VBMP), Mama Qadeer. This was the same session which was due to be held at LUMS a few weeks ago, but was cancelled at the last minute.

All these missing from Baluchistan are in training camps in Rajistan and Afghanistan.
Right, and the tortured bodies of these missing person found in Pakistan, not in Afghanistan, are of whom? Another Punjabi propagandist, trying to cover the looting and butchering of Baluchis.
