The international community is anxiously waiting to see if the forthcoming elections in Pakistan can provide a solution to Islamic insurgency and stabilize the country.

BHRC representative’s speech on the occasion of the 88th year of Persian occupation of Al Ahwaz commemorated on April 27, 2013 in Toronto.
Today the Persian occupation and colonial rule over Al Ahwaz is 88 years old, and so is the Al-Ahwazi resistance against the theocratic state of Iran for independence. In 1925, when the Persian armies marched into Ahwaz led by Gen. Zahidi under the orders of Reza Khan Pahlavi, they had only one goal in mind – the total destruction of Al-Ahwaz national identity and the plundering of its natural wealth. In the first decade that followed, up to 1936, Ahwaz was divided and forcefully annexed into other provinces, and its oil & gas exploration including marketing were firmly brought under Tehran’s control.
Sources reported that an Iranian security official was killed and another injured in a battle against armed Baloch insurgents. Four Baloch were also reportedly martyred when they retaliated and resisted against the ‘what is described’ as occupying forces.
