The Balochi Circle focuses on issues surrounding Baloch.
In 2022, 288 miners across Pakistan will die in accidents, including 166 miners in Balochistan. In the first five months of this year, 18 accidents occurred in coal mines in Balochistan province, killing 24 miners.
In its “Fact-Finding Report” in early 2023, the Pakistan Human Rights Commission expressed concern about accidents at mines in Balochistan in 2022 and asked the central government to ensure that the federal government enforces international laws protecting miners.
According to the All Pakistan Federation of Labor, more than 3,800 coal mines are currently active in Balochistan, with more than 100,000 workers mining more than 10 million tons of coal each year. The coal mined in Balochistan alone accounts for more than 50% of the total coal mined in Pakistan every year.
Balochistan reports that hundreds of workers die each year and their entire families suffer as a result of the lack of adequate facilities in these mines is a matter of serious concern, but they say the lives of the poor are not improving . Has value to anyone. It doesn’t matter.
Two workers, Sharaf Khan and Abdul Bazi, have been trapped in a mine shaft at a depth of about 900 feet for a month and a half in Miraj District, Duki District, northeastern Baluchistan Province, and have still not come out. .
His brother Abdul Basir said the grief and thoughts of his brother and cousin who were trapped on May 4 were also forgotten by the world and the media. They are trapped inside the earth, and we who live on the earth have no peace. There is no rest anywhere.
Abdul Basir said that eight of his brothers and relatives had been forced to spend the past 40 days here day and night, enduring extreme pain. As reported in Balochi circles, Eid is coming and that is why we are more worried. (Arnie)
