LAHORE - The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has asked the Balochistan government to address concerns of non-Muslim communities residing in Balochistan regarding growing incidents of their abductions in the province. According to a press statement issued on Wednesday, HRCP has conveyed to Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani the concern among non-Muslim communities in the province over the recent increase in abductions of non-Muslims there. The latest incidents include the abduction of Mr Maharaj Lakhmigar of Qalat on December 21 and of Mr Rajeev Kumar from Noshki on January 10. The HRCP said several other incidents of abduction of non-Muslim citizens in Balochistan had also been reported in the media in the last few months. The HRCP said while those abducting Lakhmigar had asked for his community to raise funds for his release, without mentioning any amount, the abductors of Kumar had not contacted the family so far. The families of the abducted individuals are obviously in great mental agony and fear for their safety. This spate of abductions has also increased a sense of insecurity and vulnerability across the non-Muslim population in the province, the HRCP said.
