This report depicts the human rights violations in Sindh, Pakistan by Pakistani security forces and
intelligence agencies in a systematic manner for more than a decade. The so called provincial and federal

accordance with law”. Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says “everyone has the right
to life, liberty and security of person.”
Pakistan is also a party to International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Article 6 of the Covenant
says “every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. No one shall
be arbitrarily deprived of his life.”
