Nasruallah Baloch and Qadeer Baloch in their joint statement said that after the abduction of Baloch political activists and student the state agencies are now abducting Baloch social activists, poet and journalists. They said renowned Baloch poet Shakir Shad works for a social organisation in Islamabad and on 22 September he was going to his native town of Pedarak from Karachi when the passenger bus he was travelling by was stopped at Ormara FC check post. The security forces first asked Mr Shakir Shad to alight from the bus for a routine body-search. As soon as the Baloch poet stepped out of the bus he was arrested and driven towards an unknown location.
His organisation has expressed serious concerns about his arrest and disappearance. They said Mr Shad’s life is at real danger. They urged the Human Rights Organisations to take immediate notice of this incident and play their due role for the safe and early release of the Baloch poet and social activist.
