LAHORE – The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) on Tuesday expressed sorrow at the death of at least 55 young men from Quetta’s Hazara community when a boat carrying around 250 people, 170 of them from Pakistan, capsized off Indonesia.

In a statement, the HRCP has called upon the government to help the families learn about the fate of the passengers as well as urgently address reasons that force Hazaras and other people from Balochistan to leave Pakistan even in the face of grave danger to their lives.
