The Balochistan Union of Journalists has strongly condemned the administration’s decision to lock the Quetta Press Club. This action is seen as an attack on press freedom and a violation of Article 19 of the Constitution.

Dr. Mahrang Baloch and other leaders were scheduled to address a seminar on reported fencing in Gwadar. Despite threats, journalists vow to continue their duties. The union demands a high-level investigation and will announce the action plan within 24 hours.

The closure of the press club is an attack on the freedom and rights of journalists, which is unacceptable. This step by the administration is a conspiracy to silence journalists and we will strongly protest against it. The union stressed that despite the threats and challenges faced by journalists, they will continue to carry out their duties and cannot be intimidated by such measures.
