On the first day of Ramazan Pakistani forces started a fresh offensive in Shapuk area of Turbat and indiscriminately attacking the civilian populace of the area.
Pakistani forces attacked houses of Baloch civilians by violating the sanctity of Baloch households, harassed
and beating up the residents including women and children. Five Baloch women have been wounded. Eight Baloch have also been abducted by the forces during this offensive.
The abducted people have been identified as Nisar Ahmed, Balach, Master Jawed, Hasan, Master Sudeer, Master Assa, Hassan and Wahid. Wahid Baloch got married only a day before his abduction by the forces.
As it is well known the Pakistani forces practice a 'torture, kill and dump policy' and family and friends fear for these young men's lives.
Pakistani forces also desecrated the graves of Baloch activists. Destroying the last resting places of the Baloch activists in clear violation of humanitarian and Islamic laws during this holy month. Such violations of human rights are expected to continue through and after this holy month of fasting when Muslims throughout the world dedicate themselves to praying.
