In a troubling incident, the family of renowned Baloch singer Ustad Minhaj Mukhtar fell victim to a violent raid by Pak security forces in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. in the Tump Konshkalat area of Kech district, Pak-occupied-Balochistan. A contingent of security personnel stormed Mukhtar’s family home, subjecting women and children to physical abuse.

The Army vandalized the property and assaulted several family members, including Mukhtar’s elderly father. Following the pattern in such raids, the security personnel looted valuables from the house, confiscating mobile phones and even livestock.

Ustad Minhaj Mukhtar, known for his revolutionary songs and several popular albums, was not present during the raid. This is not an isolated incident, as Mukhtar and his family have faced repeated harassment due to his revolutionary music.

This is just the latest in a series of intimidation tactics. Mukhtar’s home has been targeted multiple times before, with incidents ranging from shootings to arson attacks.

The raid has reignited debates about the treatment of artists and activists in PoB, that needs calling for an immediate investigation into the incident.
