مکران میں بلوچستان کا شخص: رجائیت پسند، آزادی کا جنگجو، خطر پیما

Dr Allah Nazar

بلوچستان لبریشن فرنٹ کے اعلیٰ کمانڈر ڈاکٹر اﷲ نذر سے انٹرویو

انٹرویو : وینڈی جانسن
ترجمہ : لطیف بلیدی

”….جیسا کہ مہذب دنیا جانتی ہے، پاکستان بنیاد پرستوں کی افزائش کررہا ہے….“

باوجود اسکے کہ میڈیا اس خطے کو کس طرح پیش کرتا ہے، بلوچستان شورش زدہ نہیں ہے۔ یہ بے چین نہیں ہے۔ بلکہ یہ حالت جنگ میں ہے۔ اور تمام کھلاڑی، سیاسی اور مسلح، اس کی روح کیلئے لڑ رہے ہیں۔ حال ہی میں دشت کے علاقے، جہاں پہلی مرتبہ داعش (دولت اسلامی عراق شام) کا ذکر بلوچستان کے حوالے سے سامنے آیا تھا، میں لڑائی کے بعد ہم نے اس پر تبصرے کیلئے ڈاکٹر ﷲ نذر سے رابطہ کیا۔

یہ ڈاکٹر ﷲ نذر کا گروہ بلوچستان لبریشن فرنٹ (بی ایل ایف) تھا کہ جس نے داعش سے منسلک لشکر خراسان، جسکی قیادت ایرانی شہری ملا عمر کر رہے ہیں، کیساتھ حال ہی میں دشت میں جنگ کی تھی۔

Balochistan’s Man in Makran: Optimist, Freedom Fighter, Canary in the Coal Mine

Dr Allah Nazar

Civilized world knows, Pakistan is breeding fundamentalists

Interview by Wendy Johnson

Contrary to how the media describes the region, Balochistan is not restive. And it is not troubled. Rather, it is at war. And all the players–political and armed–are battling for its soul. CrisisBalochistan first interviewed Baloch rebel leader Dr. Allah Nazar in 2011. Following a recent battle in the town of Dasht, in which the ISIS was first mentioned in relation to Balochistan, we reached out to Dr. Nazar for his comments. It was Dr. Nazar’s group, the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), that engaged the Lashkar-e-Khurasan, a group headed by Iranian national Mullah Omar and recently linked to the ISIS in Dasht.

In our 2011 interview, Dr. Nazar raised the issue of intelligence agency-sponsored radicalization efforts in Balochistan, but he is not the only one with early warnings of worse things to come…. Over the years journalist Malik Siraj Akbar and others have written of well-financed programs that are now fostering head-spinning violence in Pakistan. Of this violence, Jan Mohammad Buledi, spokesperson for the chief minister of Balochistan, says with great understatement, “To some extent, the situation is very confusing.”

Human meat a specialty in Quetta

quetta-city

In Baluchistan, a resource-rich province of Pakistan, thousands of innocent civilians and activists have been missing for decades now. The missing individuals have been abducted by Pakistan’s military and associated forces as a way to suppress and subjugate the Baluch people. The actual number of missing people is not known nor has the government taken any steps over years to bring the families to justice.  According to International Voice for Baluch Missing persons 18,000 persons went missing in the 2001-2013, out whom 2000 were killed and their bodies were found mutilated on lone streets.

Amid all these intense situations comes news of human meat being served in Quetta, Baluchistan. In a recent revelation that was shunned by Pakistani Army and no media was allowed to publish the news, in many small restaurants human meat was being served. Hannan Traders supplied meat to these restaurants whose owner, Asghar Hannan also supplied meat at the army stationed in Quetta. The revelation came to be noticed when people from these restaurants started complaining about the meat that was being served was different from usual meat, with difficulty to eat and smelt foul.
