Geneva, Switzerland, Nov 23 (ANI): Human rights violations in Balochistan province of Pakistan have drawn concern and criticism from the world over. The growing conflict between the government of Pakistan and Baloch nationalists result in the rise in enforced disappearances, tortures and killings of intellectuals and activists from the province. Baloch journalist and human rights activist Ahmar Mutikhan claims that Pakistan army is engaged in genocide of Baloch people. The situation in Balochistan is getting worse since China start constructing multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. A large number of indigenous Baloch have been displaced and killed by the security forces. Ahmar said Pakistan is hiding its crime in Balochistan by restricting visits of humanitarian groups and aid agencies. The China-led 51.5 billion dollar multi-layered infrastructure project aims to connect Kashgar in China’s western province of Xinjiang, with the port of Gwadar in Balochistan. Some of the key projects of the CPEC are being undertaken in Balochistan. Chief among them is the development of the Gwadar Port. However as China accelerates work on the port project and other aspects of the CPEC, opposition among the local people against them is mounting. Baloch nationalist groups in the province, who have for years been demanding independence and have frequently clashed with the Pakistani Army and establishment, have also called for opposition to the project.
