Letter from Noam Chomsky: The situation in Pakistan is volatile, the number of disappearances astounding.

thumbnail imageI recently met with Sufi Laghari, who is a human rights activist. During our meeting, he brought to my attention the violence and enforced disappearances that occur frequently in the Sindh and Baloch provinces. These disappearances are a gross human rights violation against the people. A statement issued on October 13, 2011 by the Asian Human Rights Commission reports that 206 disappeared persons have been extra-judicially killed in Balochistan during the preceding 15 months. Such violence is disturbing and must be brought to an end.
