28 May 1998 Pakistan Conducted Atomic Nuclear Test in Balochistan. By – Safia Baloch

Today, I stand before you with a heavy heart, compelled to address a dark chapter in history that continues to cast a shadow over the lives of countless individuals. On May 28, 1998, the world bore witness to a grave violation of international law: the clandestine nuclear bomb tests conducted in Balochistan. This brazen disregard for legal norms not only shook the foundations of global security but also unleashed a cascade of devastating consequences upon the innocent population of Balochistan.

The nuclear tests of 1998 were a flagrant violation of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), a landmark agreement aimed at curbing the proliferation of nuclear weapons and preventing the catastrophic consequences of nuclear testing. By flouting this treaty, those responsible for the tests in Balochistan not only betrayed the trust of the international community but also jeopardized the safety and well-being of millions.

The repercussions of these unlawful actions continue to reverberate to this day, manifesting in a litany of harmful side effects that have inflicted untold suffering upon the people of Balochistan. Chief among these is the grave threat to public health.

The radioactive fallout from the nuclear tests has contaminated the air, water, and soil, permeating every facet of daily life with invisible but deadly toxins. The residents of Balochistan now face an elevated risk of cancer, birth defects, and other debilitating illnesses, all as a direct result of the reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Moreover, the environmental devastation wrought by the nuclear tests is nothing short of catastrophic. Balochistan’s delicate ecosystem is poisoned by radiation.

Beyond the physical ailments and environmental degradation lies a deeper, more insidious wound: the erosion of trust, security, and dignity among the people of Balochistan. For decades, they have borne the brunt of political machinations and military agendas, their voices silenced and their rights trampled upon in the name of power and prestige.

we cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the suffering of our fellow human beings. We cannot allow the violations of the past to fade into obscurity, overshadowed by the passage of time. It is incumbent upon us, as members of the global community, to bear witness to the injustices endured by the people of Balochistan and to demand accountability from those responsible.

In conclusion, let us heed the lessons of history and redouble our efforts to uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of all people, regardless of nationality or creed. Let us stand in solidarity with the people of Balochistan as they strive to rebuild their lives in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And let us pledge ourselves to a future free from the specter of nuclear weapons, where peace, justice, and human dignity reign supreme.
