Baloch activists hold anti-Pakistan protest in Canada for human rights violations in Balochistan

Baloch political and human rights activists gathered in Toronto on Sunday to protest against Pakistan and China for gross human rights violations in Balochistan. The protest was held under the aegis of Bramsh Solidarity Committee to express anger at the murders of women and children in Balochistan. The protesters condemned the senseless murders of two Baloch women by the Pakistan Army death squads in which a 4-year-old girl, Bramsh was wounded by a stray bullet. The protesters held placards demanding: Justice for Bramsh, Justice for Maliknaz and Kulsoom, Baloch Lives Matter, Dismantle Pak Army Death Squads in Balochistan, No to Chinese CPEC in Balochistan and China Hands-off Gwadar Port Balochistan. Zafar Baloch, a Baloch Human Rights Activist based in Canada said, "Baloch people are fighting against the Pakistan Army and against the People's Liberation Army (PLA) of China and in which the decisions are made in Islamabad and GHQ, Rawalpindi where the army headquarters are, and also by Communist Party of China. They are equally criminal partners in Pakistan's slaughter and atrocities taken place in Balochistan". Karima Baloch, Ex-chairperson of Baloch Students Organisation (Azad), who is living in exile in Canada said, "Pakistan is the main perpetrator behind all thefts and killings. The army, who is running death squads and also the Frontier Corps (FC) and Anti-Terrorism Squad, is behind the killings and human rights violations in Balochistan". Protesters also expressed their anger at the Chinese CPEC projects and control over the sea port of Gwadar that has become the major reason for the China-backed Pakistani military operations in Balochistan resulting in the death of thousands of Baloch civilians.

India exercises its right of reply in response to statement by Pakistan at UNHRC [Video]

India exercises its right of reply in response to statement by Pakistan at UNHRC

India exercised its right of reply in response to statement made by Pakistan, at 43rd session of UN Human Rights Council. Senthil Kumar, First Secretary at Permanent Mission of India, Geneva said that systematic misuse of blasphemy in Pak has terrorized minorities in Pakistan. "It's unfortunate that Pakistan continues to maintain its track record of misuse of the Human Rights Council and its mechanism. It's a matter of serious concern that Pakistan being the only country in South Asia of affecting a state-sponsored genocide would have the audacity to accuse others of it. It's dangerous that Pakistan now attempts to destabilize the well-established mandate of the Council and its mechanisms for serving its narrow political agenda against India," said Senthil Kumar. "Attention of the Council is drawn to the culture of impunity and crimes against humanity that the regimes and its puppets enjoy in Pakistan. It's not surprising that Pakistan does not criminalize enforced disappearances. About 2500 people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa continue to be 'missing' for their political, religious affiliations or defence of human rights. Enforced disappearances, state violence and forced mass displacements, harassment, extrajudicial killings, army operations, torture, kill-and-dumps, torture camps, detention centres, military camps are regular features in Baluchistan. Nobody knows the fate of missing 47,000 Baloch and 35,000 Pashtuns till date. Sectarian violence has claimed more than 500 Hazaras in Baluchistan and more than 100,000 Hazaras have fled Pakistan," he further added.

Allama Iqbal didn't present ideology of Pakistan, but of Greater Punjab: Altaf Hussain

Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) leader Altaf Hussain has said that poet Allama Iqbal did not present the ideology of Pakistan but of Greater Punjab for the protection of the interest of West Punjab. He said in his latest address to the workers and the public through social media. The address was telecast live. He said that Allama Iqbal was on the payroll of the British Empire and worked for them. Hussain stated that Allama Iqbal had said he wanted to see Punjab, North-West Frontier Province, Sindh and Balochistan amalgamated into a single state. Hussain said that Allama Iqbal did not present the idea of Pakistan but of greater Punjab, but he was presented as an ideologue of Pakistan. The MQM leader alleged that governments and the establishment of Pakistan distorted history. "The new generation of Pakistan is taught that Allama Iqbal was a hero who dreamed for Pakistan," he said. Hussain said that the Muslims of undivided India was created in the name of Islam and Pakistan. He said that those who were "agents" of British Empire and against the creation of Pakistan were presented as the "hero" of Pakistan, whereas those who sacrificed for Pakistan were declared "traitors". Hussain said that Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Baltistan have become colonies of Punjab through the military power and asserted that Pakistan has become "Punjabistan". He said Mohajirs, Sindhis, Baloch, Pashtuns and people of Gilgit Baltistan want freedom from Pakistan. The MQM chief strongly condemned the atrocities and human rights violations in Pakistan by the state forces.

Extrajudicial killings in PoK, Gilgit-Baltistan not acceptable: Activist at UNHRC

National Equality Party JKGBL, Chairman Sajjad Raja while speaking at UNHRC's 44th session on July 09 said that the extrajudicial killings taking place in Pakistan occupied so called 'Azad' Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are not acceptable. He said, "The citizens of Azad Kashmir stand before you today, seeking intervention on the repression and extra judicial killings of our people - 'AZAD' means 'free', but this is a false label that has been attached to our people to hide the truth in a disgusting way. In fact, any dissent towards Pakistan is mercilessly crushed through lent officers, army atrocities and the ISI. Today even the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir is agitating against the Pakistani bullying for forcing constitutional changes through the 14th amendment in Act 74 down our throats in the name of Islam and brotherhood."
