This fame of atrocities of Pakistan taught a new lesson to the military establishment of committing selective genocide instead of mass genocide. This time when Baloch raised voice of their right to self-determination and independence of Baloch occupied state, Pakistani establishment and intelligence agencies adopted the new strategy of forced disappearances, and ‘kill and dump’ policy. Under this policy they torture these victims in secret torture cells and after acquiring information or finding the victim irrelevant they are killed and bodies are dumped on desolate mountains or empty city roads, bearing the scars of great cruelty. They all killed in similar fashion; their arms and legs are snapped; faces are bruised and swollen. Flesh is sliced with knives or punctured with drills; genitals are singed with electric prods. In some cases the bodies are unrecognizable, sprinkled with lime or chewed by wild animals. All have a gunshot wound in the head and upper torso.
Pakistani Military Crimes reports In Balochistan: Report read”In last 15 months more than 350 such bodies of Baloch students, political activists and intellectuals (Journalists, poets, teachers, doctors, lawyers and social activists) have been found who were earlier picked up by Pakistan’s Para military forces operating under the name of Frontier constabulary (FC).
Torture and mutilation of bodies dead and alive is more problematic, if only because it is odious to civilized society. Throughout the years, those cultures which have “seen the light” have been horrified by the desecration of bodies committed by barbarians of other cultures. We think of the Nazis in World War II who justified torture and mutilation of live bodies for “scientific” purposes. The communists in Russia, especially under Stalin, committed similar atrocities on ethnic groups. The Khmer Rouge beheaded and chopped the limbs from innocent people and left them by the thousands in the killing fields of Cambodia. European tribes beheaded their foes posting the heads along roads or at the town gates as a grisly warning to those who would oppose them. The Catholic Church in Europe, especially Spain, during the Inquisition tortured and mutilated those who it thought were possessed by the devil or those it simply wanted to get rid of for political reasons
