Editorial: The Other Kind of Missing Persons

Pakistan army abducting innocent unarmed Baloch citizens
There are two types of missing persons in Balochistan. One type is of the people whose pictures are displayed at hunger strike camps outside local press clubs, courts and protest rallies because they have been illegally whisked away by the Pakistani intelligence agencies and security forces. Around five hundred of these missing persons have already been killed during the custody and their mutilated bodies have been dumped in various districts of Balochistan in an effort to send a clear warning to the people that they could also end up like this if they support the nationalist movement. The second type of the missing persons is the one that is seen holding the pictures of their disappeared loved ones, addressing press conferences and appearing in courts to seek justices for their relatives.
