ANI  |  Berlin [Germany] 

The Baloch Republican Party held a protest demonstration in Wilhelm-Leuschner Platz, against violence on Baloch women and children by Army.

Baloch Republican Party staged a protest in Wilhelm-Leuschner Platz/Petersstraße Leipzig , on Saturday to highlight the ongoing Baloch genocide and human rights violations and the disappearance of Baloch people through the hands of Pakistani military and intelligence agencies in Balochistan, the Baloch National Movement (BNM) chapter held demonstrations in different cities.

"Thousands of Baloch women and children continue to fall prey to the sexual harassment and illegal detention at the hands of the Army," a protester said.

Accusing the Army of having the licence to "kill, rape and torture Baloch people and to take out their organs to sell them", Baloch Kurd liberation activist and Baloch Women's Forum president Naela Quadri Baloch has demanded that the United Nations which has "turned blind and has closed its ears and mouth" - to wake up and listen what is going on in

"The Pakistani Army has (a) licence to kill us, licence to rape us, licence to torture, licence to take out organs and sell them, because the Pakistani Army is involved in the organ trade of the Baloch people with the help of the Edhi Foundation; and, is running rape cells, where Baloch women are abducted, kept and raped. is doing all kinds of those atrocities that a sane human mind cannot imagine," Naela told ANI.

Stating that is committing this genocide of the Baloch people with the full support of China as a form of "ethnic cleansing", Naela said: "The International Day of Human Rights was announced by the U.N., but it is silent despite the atrocities and the level of genocide going on in by the Army and the Pakistani establishment. It's like a kind of situation where Baloch people have no rights that even your animals have."

Buttressing her claims, the Baloch activist said, "We have found more than 100 mass graves with more than 100 bodies in each, and doctors say they were alive when they were buried in those mass graves."

They are burning Baloch villages and towns - it is a situation that no human heart can see and keep silent, she said, adding, "But we are surprised and we are worried about the legal status of the U.N. now."

She said that what is going on in a part of the (Balochistan) is very much needed for connecting the Indian Ocean to the Central Asia; it's very much needed to be a route; it's very much needed for people's trade; and it's very much needed for the economic corridor (China-Economic Corridor-CPEC). "It is not a corridor; it is our home; it is a corridor for outsider; it is a corridor for occupiers and passersby; for us it is our home," she said.
