Refusal to Hand Over Bodies Sparks Outrage Amidst Protests in Balochistan

Amidst widespread protests against torture and atrocities in Balochistan, the provincial administration in Pakistan has refused to hand over the bodies of 14 people to their families. Despite huge public demonstrations, the bodies have been kept in Quetta’s civil hospital, causing frustration among the waiting relatives.

Authorities Withhold Bodies Despite Public Outcry

The Balochistan Post reported that the bodies of 14 people, including Salal Akbar, have been kept in Quetta’s civil hospital, but the authorities have not handed them over to their families. The sister-in-law of Salal Akbar, who had been waiting to receive his body, faced obstacles from the administration. A significant deployment of force was reported, allegedly intended to harass the waiting relatives.

Presence of Activists and Political Leaders

During the incident, Vice Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons Mama Qadeer Baloch, National Party leader Mama Ghaffar, and other family members of the deceased were present. The refusal to hand over the bodies has sparked outrage and intensified protests in Balochistan.

Ongoing Public Protests Against Various Issues

Balochistan has recently witnessed protests, sit-ins, and demonstrations by the general public, expressing dissatisfaction with heavy taxes, revocation of wheat subsidies, and massive load shedding in the region. The Baloch community’s struggle has garnered support not only from within the province but also from activists in other parts of Pakistan.

Solidarity Demonstrations by Activists from PoK and GB

Political activists from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Gilgit Baltistan (GB) have shown solidarity with the Baloch cause. Activists participating in a protest organized by Baloch women expressed concern over the luxurious lifestyle of political leaders amidst the country’s financial challenges. They voiced their support for the daughters of Balochistan, emphasizing the need to stand against the oppressive regime in Pakistan.

Calls for an End to Suppression and Exploitation of Resources

Protesters highlighted the oppressive regime’s suppression of people in PoK for the past 75 years. Activists called for an end to the exploitation of natural resources by political leaders, expressing solidarity with the victims of Pakistani oppression and torture, many of whom have lost family members to the regime’s actions.
