The failure of the Mirani Dam must be a watershed moment for planners
Some 19 men from Turbat in Balochistan travelled over 2,000 kilometres to set up a hunger camp at the Charing Cross, just outside the Wapda House complex. Why did they come? Honestly, if it were not for the fact that this was a column written nine days into the hunger strike, I would have said: ‘Please ask them yourself’.
The matter appears rather simple: the Mirani Dam was inaugurated on the Dasht River by General Musharraf to much fanfare in 2007. Promises were made that it would irrigate over 33,200 acres of land and thus ‘develop the people of Balochistan’. While plans were being hatched between the servants of our ‘visionary’ state and the Saudi sheikhdom for leasing these ‘future’ irrigated fields, disaster struck. On June 26-27 the people suffered what they had predicted: the dam created a flood.
Occupied Balochistan: A huge rally was held by Baloch National Front (BNF) against Pakistani state atrocities and media blackout in Balochistan on 2 February 2013 in Turbat. Talking to the media Baloch Student Organization – Azad (BSO-A) activist Banok Makekan Baloch explained the cause and aim of the rally.
She said; As Baloch National Front (BNF) conducted this rally we want to make aware the civilized world, international community, Human Rights activists and especially international media. Our main goal for this rally is, we urge United Nation (UN) to interfere in Balochistan for human rights and especially for international law violations. Pakistan is not only violating UN charter and international declaration of human rights, but Baloch are facing Pakistani atrocity since 1947.

Occupied Balochistan: Rally, organized by BNF, is the largest in Turbat’s history. Whole city echoed with ”Free Balochistan” slogans. Massive show of power by Baloch National Front (BNF), an alliance of Baloch Student Organisation -Azad and the Baloch National Movement (BNM, in Turbat.
Thousands of Baloch women, children and elderly took part in a rally, on Saturday, against the military operations, kill and dump and ‘criminal silence of International media’ on gross human rights violations in Balochistan and the silence of UN and other international human rights organisations on Baloch Genocide.
I was all packed and ready when PIA suddenly decided to cancel its flight from Quetta to Turbat, which I was supposed to take to attend a family wedding the very next day. I panicked and called my uncle in Turbat to inform him that I couldn’t make it. But he was persistent and insisted that I had to come. So I decided to take a bus for Turbat the same evening.
As the bus left the station, I realised that I was wearing black clothes and that my surname was Hussain – enough reason to get killed on my journey to simply see two cousins tie the knot. Details of massacres of bus passengers who had taken similar bus journeys were quite vivid in my mind.
