The statement of Home Minister Zia Langove is concealment of truth. BHRO

The spokesperson of Baloch Human Rights Organization issued a statement in response of BBC report about the discovery of mutilated bodies from Balochistan and their burial without identification. He said, in the last 26 months, 131 mutilated bodies were found from all over Balochistan who were buried without identification. The burial of bodies without identification is concerning for the families of victims of enforced disappearances and such inhuman incident are inflicting serious pain to the families.

The spokesperson further added that the Supreme Court of Pakistan has obligated the DNA analysis of beyond recognition bodies but the government is not fulfilling its obligation which is distressful for the families of victims of enforced disappearances.

The Home Minister of Balochistan Zia Langove has blamed the past government for the recovery of mutilated bodies and justify the burial of bodies without identification by non-cooperation of families is the distortion of truth. For last many years, families of victims of enforced disappearances are struggling for the safe recovery of their loved ones from the platform of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and demanding from the government to produce their loved ones in court and allow them to practice their legal rights but these just demands were always ignored.

Baloch Human Rights Organization and Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, for last many years, demanding the DNA analysis for the beyond recognition bodies recovered from Balochistan but past governments have rejected our just demand. In a situation where thousands of people are forcefully disappeared by forces, burial of beyond recognition bodies without identification and declaring them orphans is serious violation of human rights and silence of national and international human rights organization shows lack of seriousness towards human rights violations of Balochistan.

We appeal to the Supreme Court of Pakistan and Government including human rights organization to investigate the recovery of mutilated bodies and their burial without identification and take measures on immediate basis for the identification of bodies so that the families of victims of enforced disappearances get relieve.
