KLF: The missing Baloch are among us

“The issue of missing people has been completely ignored by the press in general and society at large,” said Talpur. As he related chilling accounts of numerous young men who have been snapped and ingested by the flytrap of the security agencies, he paused and said, “The pain of the relatives of missing people is unimaginable.”  
In brazen words, Hanif said Pakistan’s media, courts and society are willfully numb when it comes to the reality of missing people in Balochistan. “Why is it that in the bustling city of Karachi, relatives of missing persons who have been camping outside the press club for months go unnoticed – we act like they are missing,” he joked wryly.
