Gottingen/IBNS: Baloch political activists in Germany recently demonstrated against Pakistan to mark the 23rd anniversary of the nuclear test conducted on Baloch land in the Chaghi region.

The Baloch National Movement (Germany chapter) staged a protest and rally in Germany’s Gottingen City on Sunday. On May 28, 1998, Pakistan carried out a nuclear test at Chaghai, Balochistan which led to severe aftermath effects in the region, reports ANI.

Nadeem Saleem Baloch, the ex-Joint Secretary of Baloch BNM-Germany Chapter while highlighting the aftermath told ANI, Pakistan carried out five nuclear blasts, among which four were of 1 to 2 kilotons. The nuclear blast of Rasko Mountain was 40 kilotons.

Samul Baloch, vice president of the BNM Germany Chapter was quoted as saying by the news agency, “Nuclear testing is a matter of great concern for the entire international community. It is an action that has far-reaching consequences, affecting not only the environment but also the lives of countless individuals. The testing of nuclear weapons in Balochistan by the Pakistan military raises serious questions about the nation’s commitment to global disarmament efforts.”

“Balochistan, a region already grappling with numerous socio-political challenges, is now burdened with the presence of nuclear testing sites. The consequences of these tests are not limited to the immediate surroundings but extend beyond borders, impacting neighbouring countries and the overall ecosystem. The potential hazards to human health, the environment, and the delicate balance of nature cannot be ignored,” she added.
