“Confounding the people” by Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

I appeal to all Baloch to unite for the dream they have dreamt for so long for unless we unite it will always remain just that-a dream. 
Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurA few days back Balochistan National Party (BNP-M) chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal threatened that legislators of his party will resign from assemblies if dumping of mutilated bodies of Baloch youth continues. The establishment must surely be quaking in its boots worried to death at the dire consequences of unprecedented turmoil in Balochistan if he in fact carries out his threat. One wonders what he means by ‘if the dumping of mutilated bodies continues’ and also what his and his party’s tolerance threshold for such crimes against humanity is. Since 2008 more than a thousand Baloch activists have been kidnapped, killed and dumped. How many more have to die before the BNP-M really gets angry. Weren’t the mass graves found in Tutak and military operation in Kalat too enough of a reason to make their stand on the rights of Baloch but it seems their pain threshold level is very high. His threats are starting to sound more like those of Dr. Malik and company when they constantly repeated that they would quit the government if they were ineffective. Albert Camus rightly said, “Those who lack courage will always find a philosophy to justify it”.

بلوچستان میں ایف سی کی کارروائیاں

Pak-Army-operation

بی بی سی اردو ڈاٹ کام، بلوچستان

بلوچستان کے ضلع آوارن کےگاؤں ملازئی کے رہائشیوں کے لیے اٹھارہ فروری کی شام بھی ایک معمول کی شام تھی جب وہ مال مویشی چرانے کے بعد سورج غروب ہونے سے قبل گھروں کو لوٹ چکے تھے۔

صبح جلد اٹھنے کی عادت ہونے کی وجہ سے یہ لوگ اٹھارہ فروری کو بھی اسی طرح سوگئے کہ اچانک ہیلی کاپٹر اور گاڑیوں کے شور نے ملازئی گاؤں کے لوگوں کو جگا دیا۔

جیئند بلوچ اور علی حیدر بلوچ کا انقلابی قافلہ

Beauragh_Ali Haider_ Jehand_ Baloch

Beauragh Baloch-Ali Haider Baloch-Jehand Baloch

تحریر: حکیم واڈیلہ

۲۸ اکتوبر ۲۰۱۳ سے قبل ہم میں سے اکثر لوگ ایک ایسے نام سے ناواقف تھے جو آج ایک آئڈیل کے طورپر جاناجاتاہے. ہم ایک ایسے کردار سے بےخبر تھے جو اپنی عمر، طاقت اور عقل سے بہت زیادہ سوچتا، سمجھتا اور عمل کرتاہے. ہم اس کردار سے ناواقف تھے جس نے کوئٹہ سے کراچی تک کے پیدل سفر کے دوران ناتو اپنے ہاتھ سے اپنے ٹھیلے کو گرنے دیا اور ناہی کبھی یہ شکایت کی کہ میں تھک چکا ہوں اب میں اور نہیں چل سکتا. لیکن وہ کردار جسے آج دنیا علی حیدر کے نام سے جانتی ہے اس نے اپنے ایک انٹرویو کے دوران کہاتھاکہ ہم اپنا احتجاج اپنے پیاروں کی بازیابی تک جاری رکھیں گے یہ تکلیف، مشقت، لمبا سفر اور ہمارے پیروں کا درد ان کربناک اذیتوں سے زیادہ نہیں جو ہمارے پیاروں کو ریاست پاکستان کی جانب سے جبری طور پر گمشدہ کرکے ہمیں دیےگئے ہیں.

BALOCHISTAN: RAIDING THE BOOKS, PATRONIZING THE POPPY CULTIVATION


Books on Balochistan confiscated by pakistan

The Pakistani establishment is out to destroy the Baloch nation by denying them knowledge and the understanding of their history.

by Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurChristian Johann Heinrich Heine (December 13, 1797 – February 17, 1856) was a journalist, an essayist, and one of the most significant German romantic poets. A hundred years before Hitler burnt books which the Nazis thought were unpatriotic and subversive, he had said: “Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings” and this is exactly what happened during the Nazi rule. Not only in Germany but  across Europe. Book burning is known as biblioclasm or libricide and is carried out because rulers’ fear the written words and knowledge; it has a long history and is prompted by the fear of dissent and diversity by those in authority and is aimed at denying people the counter-narrative. This usually begins with a few books but slowly expands with the increasing insecurity of the establishments.

PAKISTAN: Balochistan – rule of law or the maintenance of law and order?

balochistan

Mr. Jinnah, could not differentiate between the rule of law and the rule by force which has resulted several military actions in Balochistan

The provincial Interior Minister of Balochistan has stated that a terrorist attack on a passenger train resulting in the death of 18 persons was an attempt to avenge the Frontier Corp (FC) Kalat operation by the militants and Baloch Liberation Army (BLA). The minister tried, as is the usual practice of the government, to place the blame for the deaths on some militant groups in an effort to hide the negligence and failure of the government to protect the people. If the statement of the provincial minister is accepted as correct then it means that the deaths were a result of retaliation by the terrorists against the FC operations and not as a direct result of their operations.

Social Media: Boon or Bane For The Baluchistan Freedom Struggle.. By Laila Baloch

Using-Social-Media

Social media being a powerful communication tool of twenty first century is playing a vital role in highlighting the excesses against deprived, aggrieved and oppressed people at both national and international level. Apart from this, history is replant with the examples where Social media did miracles in the world of international politics. Along with Egypt there are many other nations of the world which used social media as a source to get relief from the oppressors and to get their rights. These states’ elements by utilizing social media properly become successful in vibrating the wires of internal as well as external forces against occupiers and imposed rulers to get an absolute freedom.
