In a press statement, Baloch National Front has said the media boycott campaign, that started a week ago, against Pakistani media silence towards gross human rights violations in Balochistan, has attained unprecedented popularity among public, despite the fact that the occupying state has unleashed ceaseless terrorism in Balochistan.
With overwhelming response, Makran region has entirely boycotted Pakistani TV channels that are constantly ignoring Pakistan’s state sponsored terrorism in Balochistan. The statement said that the protest is widely spreading across Balochistan.
This media boycott campaign has been launched by BNF against media silence over state sponsored terrorism: massive military operations, Baloch genocide and the heinous kill and dump.
Since one week, the major cities, towns and villages of Makuran including Turbat, Gwadar, Buleda, Panjgor, Tump, Mand, Pishukan, Ganz, Hoshap, Sami, Pasni, Shahrak have all boycotted Vash TV and other Punjab based Pakistani TV channels.
Given the overwhelming public pressure, the cable owners’ response to boycott call has been highly positive.
This media boycott campaign was launched at a time when the Pakistani media including Vash TV kept ignoring the outpouring public protest rallies of Baloch National Front in Turbat and Karachi against military operation and abduction of Baloch youth in Balochistan.
It is noteworthy here to mention that whenever it comes to Balochistan crisis, Pakistani media never hides its biased attitude towards Baloch nation.
