Pakistan News: The internal situation of Pakistan is very bad. Many times the demand for separation of Sindh province from Pakistan has even been raised. Meanwhile, Baloch protesters from Balochistan demonstrated strongly in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad. Baloch protesters held a strong demonstration and long march in Islamabad against the killing of Baloch youth in Pakistan. However, this march was stopped by the police on Thursday before it could enter Islamabad. To disperse the crowd of these protesters, the police used heavy water cannons and lathicharged the protesters.

200 protesters detained

The police have taken 200 protesters into their custody and taken them to an unknown place. Prominent leader Mehrang Baloch is also among the arrested protesters. However, the caretaker government of Pakistan has released all the women and children arrested. Protestors under the banner of Baloch Yak-Jehti Committee (BYC) had launched a long march from Dera Ghazi Khan to Islamabad on December 19 against state-sponsored violence.

Why did Baloch protesters do long march?

Let us tell you that in November, 24-year-old Baloch youth Mola Baksh died in police custody. Since then, Baloch youth have been protesting in various cities. BYC said in an ex-post that on Thursday, when the march was trying to enter Islamabad, the Punjab Police lathicharged them. Dozens of protesters were injured, including women.

High Court reprimanded the arrest of protesters

Islamabad High Court on Thursday termed the arrest of Baloch protesters as illegal and reprimanded the arrest. Chief Justice Amir Farooq had summoned Inspector General of Police ‘IG’ Akbar Nasir Khan in this case. The High Court said that peaceful demonstration is the constitutional right of every citizen. A five-member committee has been formed under the chairmanship of Minister Fawad Hasan to resolve the grievances of Baloch protesters.
