[Online] Pakistani forces continue attacks against Baloch refugees and internally displaced people who were forced to migrate from their ancestral lands because of the ongoing military operations and continuous atrocities by the state forces. The forces attacked Bugti Baloch IDPs in Ghotki district of Sindh yesterday. Houses of IDPs were attacked, looted, and residents were tortured and abducted. Wadera Hasil Khan Bugti’s house was attacked, and his aged mother namely Hani bibi; his wife Murad Khatoon and infant son Abdul Rehman were abducted and taken to an undisclosed location according to a BRP statement.

Baloch Republican Party claimed that “Dozens of other people including women and children were also abducted, but their identity could not be ascertained immediately. ”

“Hundreds of thousands Baloch mostly of Bugti tribe migrated to different parts of Balochistan, Sindh and even in Afghanistan after the start of the military operations and atrocities in their homeland. The military operation began in the early 2000s fiercely continues even after almost a decade and continues to gain momentum day after day.” reads BRP statement.

BRP further stated that China is the major partner to the Pakistani state in the crime of Baloch genocide and ongoing atrocities in Balochistan. The Baloch Republican Party appeals to the international community and world human rights and refugee rights organizations to take action on the forceful migration of Baloch people from their homeland and attacks on them even after the migration. If serious measures have not been taken to safeguard the lives of innocent Baloch civilians, it is feared that the sense of immunity by Pakistani forces will take more innocent lives in coming days.
