Activists from the Baloch Republican Party (BRP)-Germany chapter recently held a protest against Pakistan over human rights violations and persecution of Baloch people in Balochistan province.
The activists gathered in Germany's Frankfurt city and raised anti-Pakistan slogans, calling it a "terrorist state". The demonstrators also accused Pakistan Army and spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for supporting terrorist groups like Islamic State (IS), al Qaeda and Taliban, who are engaged in the enforced disappearances and killings of Baloch people.
The protesters appealed to the European Parliament and the United Nations (UN) to take immediate note on the worsening human rights situation in Balochistan, which is the largest and resource-rich province of Pakistan.
A BRP Germany activist, Wasim Baloch said, "In Balochistan, the Pakistan Army has sped up human rights violations, which include the organised killing of Baloch leaders, political activists and civilians, who have been demanding justice for freedom."
He added, "The Army, the ISI and other agencies are abducting and killing these activists far away in their torture cells and hoping that the Baloch people will forget about them. The UN should take immediate action against Pakistan Army."
Thousands of Baloch political activists and intellectuals have been disappeared and many have been brutally killed, allegedly by Pakistan's secret services agencies and the Pakistan Army.
Taking cognizance of the same, the Baloch people have been protesting across the world seeking help from the international community and human rights organisations.
