(Islamabad) It is very sad to share with you that Mr. Handery Baloch, a member of Balochistan Assembly and the Vice-Chairperson of Minority Rights Commission (MRC) has been killed outside his residence in Nawa Killi area of Quetta today June 14, 2014. Mr. Handery served MRC as Vice-Chairperson since in July 2002. He was very gentle, committed and political worker and human rights activist.
Mr. Handery joined the politics since he was a student. He was affiliated with the National Party and he was elected from NM-65 on a reserved seat for minorities in general election May 2013. He struggled a lot for the rights of religious minorities and Baloch nation.
MRC condemns the brutal killing of Mr. Handery and demand justice from the government. The State has failed to provide safety and security to religious minorities in Pakistan.
