Protest rallies held across Balochistan against killing of prominent leader & activist Karima Baloch in Canada

Protest rallies were carried out in different cities across Balochistan on Wednesday against the killing of prominent leader and activist Karima Baloch in Canada.

Hundreds of people including activists gathered in various places in Quetta and Hub City demanding a fair probe by the Canadian government into Karima’s sudden death.

Karima, a vocal critic of the Pakistan Army and government atrocities in Balochistan, was found dead in Toronto.

The Baloch activist had arrived in Canada in 2016 and campaigned extensively against disappearances and human rights violations in the troubled Balochistan province.

Free Balochistan Movement said that the disappearance and murder of Karima Baloch in Canada is a matter of grave concern and shock for all.

In a statement, Free Balochistan Movement said that due to the atrocities of Pakistan, Baloch refugees were forced to migrate to neighbouring Afghanistan.

It urged the UN refugee agency to take steps to protect and assist the Baloch refugees.
