Karima Baloch was found dead in Canada, a day after she went missing last month. She had gone missing on the 20th December, and her family later confirmed that the activist’s body had been found.
The police found her body drowned off an island just near Toronto’s lakeshore. Her husband, Hammal Haider, and brother identified her body. A Canadian refugee, Karima was named as one of the world’s 100 most “inspirational and influential” women in 2016 by a British outlet.
Moreover, she was known as one of the strongest voices of Baloch people abroad. However, as soon as her brother posted the sad news of her body arrival next week, Twitter was once again filled with the hashtag of Karima Baloch’.
A month has passed since the killing of the martyr Karima Baloch, who was one of the most prominent political figures in Balochistan. We demand from the Canadian government an urgent investigation of what caused her to death.#JusticeForKarimaBaloch pic.twitter.com/7ylDgorOQt
