This discriminatory attitude should end immediately otherwise the consequences will be dangerous," he added. aloch highlighted that now women were also being subjected to enforced disappearances in Balochistan.

"Balochistan has been neglected for the past 64 years and this has led to a trust deficit between the Baloch people and the rulers. This discriminatory attitude provided an opportunity for foreign elements to exploit this situation," he insisted.

The JI leader further added that the region has a strategic importance and foreign forces will definitely try to ensure their presence here.
