The spokesperson of the Baloch National Movement said that the martyrdom of Karima Baloch, a BNM leader living in exile in Canada and former chairperson of BSO Azad, is a great loss to the Baloch nation and the national movement. With the death of Banuk Karima, we have lost a visionary leader and a national symbol. Compensation for this great loss is impossible for centuries.
The spokesperson said that Banuk Karima Baloch had been missing for a day. His body was found by Toronto police in Canada today. The Baloch National Movement has declared 40 days of mourning for the sudden death of its leader and former chairperson of BSO Azad and National Leader Banuk Karima Baloch, and all zones are directed to suspend other activities for 40 days.
The spokesperson said that Banuk Karima Baloch was not only the party leader and former chairperson of BSO but also the first female chairperson in the history of Baloch Student Organization. He took command of the BSO at a time when Pakistani barbarism was on the rise. The organization’s vice chairman, chairman, information secretary and other cabinet members had gone missing at the hands of the state. But the brave leader of the Baloch nation in these difficult times not only led the organization with the best strategy but also rendered significant services to the entire Baloch national movement, and her role for the full participation of women in the Baloch national movement will always be remembered.
He said that Banuk Karima Baloch, due to her courage, bravery and political acumen, will always be alive and will remain as a symbol for the Baloch nation and other oppressed nations of the world. With her ability, commitment and bravery, she achieved a prominent position in the Baloch national movement and internationally. She was named one of the BBC’s 100 Most Influential Women by the leading British broadcaster BBC.
