One response to “Baloch did not want provincial autonomy, but freedom: Harbiyar Marri

  1. Dear all Baloch,
    Waja Harbiyar has shown his readiness to go far and
    discuss the problem of Balochistan with all political &
    military officials of Pakistan tofind out apeaceful & final solution of outstanding problem of Balochistan.
    He has rightly said that the solution of the problem of
    Balochistan rests not in provincial autonomy but its’
    total freedom from all occupying foreign forces.
    We would like to advise our brother Mir Harbiyar Marri that how could he trust all those PunjabiArmed
    civilian & political leaders, whose hands are soaked
    with Baloch blood without International guarantee & mediation? Mir Ahmed Yar Khan trusted Jinnah, who betrayed him. Shaheed Nouraz Khan trusted
    Ayub Khan & Tikka Khan, who signed on Quran and betrayed him and finally hanged his sons & nephews. Shaheed Akber Khan Bughti trusted Mushaid Hussain who finally betrayed assasinated him in cold blood. BalaachMarri was martyred by Punjabi
    army for what crime he committed. Waja Ghulam
    Mohd, Sher Mohd & Lala Munir were abducted in day light and murdered and molested for what crime they committed? Dr. Khalid & Dilwash were martyred in cold blood. What was their crime. They
    wanted the same thing which you are claiming for.
    These Punjabi criminals have abducted more than
    8 thousands Baloch men & women; and torturing
    them in their secret dentention cells; for what crime
    these poor Baloch have committed? There is no sound reason for their abduction, torture and final
    execution except they want; what you are demanding. Waja Harbiyar we sincerely request you as not to trust these Punjabi army or political leaders and jump to negotiating table. Yesterday Zardari has charged that there elements conspiring to overthrow the rule of his party. If it is case then there is a tug of
    war in between PPP & Punjabi leadership; and most
    probably the future of Balochistan’s package. So please the people of Balochistan are in dire need of
    yourself. As such you should not trust these untrust-worthy Punjabis.
    Sincerely yours
