Today #Karima was drowned in Toronto by #Balochistan’s enemies to silence her, not knowing Karima’s speeches will live forever.

Karima Baloch's family has confirmed that her body has been found.
Shocking to wake up to Baloch activist #KarimaBaloch’s mysterious death in Canada. She took on the rogue Pakistan Army & ISI for Balochistan’s freedom. Clearly, Baloch people are not safe even in Canada. PM @JustinTrudeau who panders to Pakistan backed characters is answerable. pic.twitter.com/DmO4pwmwmA— Aarti Tikoo Singh (@AartiTikoo) December 22, 2020
