Baloch community in the UK urged the Swiss Govt. for asylum to Brahamdagh

LONDON: The Balochistan Republican Party’s UK chapter organised a protest against the killing of Brahmdagh Bugti’s sister and niece in Karachi, and human rights violations in Balochistan. The protestors urged the Swiss government to grant political asylum to Brahmdagh Bugti, the BRP leader, without any delay. There are reports that the Swiss government is not replying to the Baloch leader about his status in the country despite the fact he was taken out of Afghanistan after the United Nations intervened over fears that the young Baloch leader will be killed. Those who spoke on this occasion included Mansoor Baloch, BRP’s UK leader, Mir Ghulam Hussain Information Secretary of Baloch Human Rights Council, Mehrab Baloch, Waja Abdulla Baloch Leader of Baloch Raaji Zrombesh, Waja  Akbar Barakzai  President of  Baloch Human Rights Council and Sohaib Baloch from BSO-Azaad. The speakers condemned the murder of Brahmdagh Bugti’s sister and niece in Karachi and alleged that Pakistani intelligence agencies were involved in these killings. They also appreciated the US Congressional resolution on Balochistan and hoped that more Congressmen will support Dana Rohrabacher to help him pass the resolution. The speakers also urged the Baloch leaders to unite for the national interest and freedom of Balochistan. The speakers urged the Swiss government not to succumb to any pressure and deport Brahmdagh to Balochistan. They alleged Pakistan killed Brahmdagh’s grandfather, several of his party workers and now his sister and niece and that Brahmdagh has a well-founded cases for asylum, which proves that his life is in grave danger. They said that Pakistani intelligence agencies got a Swiss couple kidnapped and now they have conditioned the abducted Swiss couple’s release to the political asylum of Brahmdagh.
