Baloch genocide continues, BRP calls for strike on 20th

Baloch Republican Party announces shutter-down strike in Dera Bugti and Punjgor towns tomorrow (July 20, 2013) against the killings of the family members of BRP CC member Shama Bugti and BRP Punjgor activist Ijaz Baloch.

[Online] Baloch genocide by the Pakistani state forces continues ceaselessly in the Holy month of Ramzan. Pakistani forces have extra-judicially murdered three Baloch men and dumped their bullet-riddled dead bodies in Dera Bugti and Punjgor. Baloch Republican Party announces shutter-down strike in Dera Bugti and Punjgor towns tomorrow. This was announced in a statement issued by BRP.

According to the BBR “State forces attacked the house of BRP CC member Shama Bugti in Sui three days ago and abducted his aged father, Hamal Bugti, and brother Wahid Bugti. Today, the dead body of 82 years old Hamal Bugti and 21 years old Wahid Bugti have been recovered from “Aasreli” area of Sui. The dead body of another BRP activist Ijaz Baloch has been found from Karachi last night. He was abducted by  intelligence agencies from Pasni on January 24 while he was on his way to Karachi from Punjgor.”

BRP urged the international community to end their silence on the continuous, systematic genocide of Baloch nation by the Pakistani state and its armed forces in Balochistan and step forward to play their role to stop Human Rights abuses and war crimes committed against the Baloch people.
