Yaqoub Mehrnehad was very young when he was hanged, but added more value to the collective achievements of Baluch nation than thousands of men who have died in their homes, in accidents and in the hospitals. He was the kind of person who wanted to generate respect for the Baluch people. He thought they deserved it and had to get it at all cost. Thousands of Baluch have died without having any impact on improving their own lives or the collective life of their nation. They appear and disappear in this world without being relevant. They come in this world, suffer, witness the history of their nation’s suffering and fade away as if they have never been born.
