LONDON: The Baloch Diaspora has paid rich tributes to legendary assassinated leader Nawab Akbar Bugti who was killed in a military action in the mountains of Dera Bugti district on August 26, 2006.
Baloch Republican Party (BRP) organised a seminar on the occasion of sixth anniversary of Nawab Bugti at the University College, London which was attended by Baloch activists from across the United Kingdom.
A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press is an invaluable asset for a state that is hell bent on ensuring that its ideology is accepted as the supreme truth
Some newspapers (not Daily Times) tried to present the FC-managed and orchestrated August 14 celebrations in Quetta as spontaneous and fervent, but the irony that most events including the flag hoisting by Chief Minister Raisani was FC-organised was totally lost on them; they also forgot the cellular services suspension, a repeat of the March 23 exercise. This purposeful misreporting simply dupes people into believing that only some troublemakers are responsible for the situation in Balochistan and thus creates an atmosphere conducive for continuing excesses against the Baloch struggling for their rights. Joseph Pulitzer’s quote, “A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself,” rings true here.
Shutter down strike on International day against disappearances will be observed throughout Balochistan. Protests will also be held around the world against disappearance of BSO-A leader Zakir Majeed Baloch, Dr Din Mohammad Baloch and thousands other. In this regard protests will be held in Canada, Australia and Europe.

Baloch Community Germany will also hold protests in Koln city of Germany.
