Killing and Dumping Baloch Activists Now In Karachi

According to a B.B.C. Urdu report, at least five dead bodies of the missing Baloch people have been found in different parts of Karachi in the past one and half months. The pattern of the newly found dead is very similar to what was until recently described by the Amnesty International as the “kill and dump operations” in Balochistan. Political activists and citizens who disappear from Balochistan, mainly from the coastal region of Mekran, are now found dead in parts of Karachi.

Balochistan and the upcoming elections

The elections will be a futile exercise if there is no change in the current composition of the Balochistan Assembly. The status quo did not change after the 2008 elections and a similar outcome this time will further block a ballot-driven solution for the Balochistan conflict.
