Instruct Pakistan to release Zahid Baloch abducted in Balochistan on March 18, 2014
On March 18, 2014, Zahid Baloch, the head of the Balochistan Students Organization (BSO-Azad) was abducted by the Pakistan Military and he has not been heard of since then and not produced before any court of law. Balochistan is a resource-rich territory occupied by Pakistan since 1948 and is now in the 10th year of a military action by the Pakistan Army and its intelligence agencies, the ISI ad MI that have abducted thousands of innocent civilians, suspected militants and activists. An association for peaceful protest formed by some of the families of those missing, called the International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (IIVBMP) says that up to 18,000 Baloch are currently unaccounted for, of whom more than 2000 were killed between 2001 to 2013. That figure is much higher than data from other NGOs and human rights organizations, but the IVBMP says it will be publishing details of all its data early next year.

In the latest sweep of kidnappings of Baloch youth, the Pakistan military raided a meeting of the Balochistan Students Organisation (BSO) in Quetta where they abducted the organisation's chair, Mr. Zahid Baloch on March 18, 2014. He is being held illegally in a military camp where we have learnt he is being tortured and faces imminent death if the UNHRC and other international Human Rights bodies do not intervene.

Canada needs to go the full monty in embracing Omar Khadr and his family. Our surrender to Al-Qaeda must be in letter and spirit without any sign of hesitation.
