Recover Missing Persons in Pakistan

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

Forced disappearance in Pakistan originated during the military dictator General Pervez Musharraf (1999 to 2008). The practice continued during subsequent governments. The term missing persons is sometimes used as a euphemism. According to Amina Masood Janjua, a human rights activist and chairperson of Defence of Human Rights Pakistan; a not for profit organization working against enforced disappearance there are more than 5,000 reported cases of enforced disappearance in Pakistan. There are no formal allegations or charges against the persons thus forcefully disappeared.

Due to the complete neglect and shamelessly irresponsible attitude of the establishment of Pakistan, this issue has reached a very critical point and the people of Pakistan are now on roads to demand justice and end to this illegal abduction of people by the security agencies. Some families have not seen or heard anything about there loved ones for 22 years now and 2 mothers have died waiting for their sons. It's such a shameful moment for the Pakistani authorities that they haven't been able to take any significant action on this issue for a decade. Also, there is a complete media blackout and no news channel is allowed to broadcast anything about this issue, the families of the affected families are completely hopeless from the judiciary and the democratic institutions of Pakistan as they have been begging on the doors of courts and authorities for more than about 4 years now. In such a situation, there is no way left for people but to take to streets and peacefully protest against this brutal and inhumane aggression of the fellow citizens of this country. The people are protesting outside the house of President Arif Alvi in Karachi for more than 56 hours now but there is no single contact by senior officials yet. Shame on the so-called democratic and reformist government of Imran Khan who has failed to respond to these protestors and banned media to broadcast any news on this issue. Is this the #NayaPakistan that we were promised?
