خرافات اور حقائق تبصرہ : میر محمد علی ٹالپر ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

یہاں تک کہ ایک مہذب ریاست کی فوجی قوت کے سربراہ بھی ایسے معاشرے پررشک کرتے ہوںگے جہاں کنبے کے بزرگوں کیلئے ”غیرمشروط احترام“ موجود ہو۔ بنیادی طور پر عوام کے سردار اور پاکستانی ریاست کے درمیان یہی فرق ہے

یہاں سردار کا ادارہ بہت زیادہ تہمت طرازی کا شکار ہے، اوریہ اسلئے نہیں ہے کہ پاکستان اسے برا سمجھتا ہے۔ یہ اسلئے ہے کیونکہ انکے پاس اپنے قبائل کی غیرمشروط احترام کی کمان ہے اور وہ بلوچ عوام کی سیاسی امنگوںکی نمائندگی کرتے ہوئے ریاست کی طرف سے بلوچوں کو سرنگوں کرنے اور بلوچستان کے وسائل کا استحصال کرنے کی کوششوں کو ناکام بناتے آئے ہیں۔ پاکستان کے ارادے اور اعمال بلوچ اور ان کے فطری پیدائشی حقوق سے متصادم ہیں اور ان پر اسکے غیرمہذب اور ذلت آمیز برتاو ¿ نے اس بات کی ضمانت دے رکھی ہے کہ یہ کبھی بھی ان کے اعتماد اور حمایت کو حاصل نہیں کرپائے گا۔

Myths and realities —Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

Even the head of the military power of a civilised state may well envy the “unrestrained respect” of society for the elder of a clan. This essentially is the distinction between a people’s sardar and the Pakistani state

The institution of sardar is much maligned here, and not because Pakistan deems it evil. It is because sardars commanding the unreserved respect of their tribes and representing the political will of the Baloch people have thwarted the state’s attempts to subjugate the Baloch and exploit Balochistan’s resources. Pakistan’s intentions and actions are at odds with the inherent rights of the Baloch and its uncivilised and shabby treatment of them has guaranteed that it will never get their confidence and support.

Rohrabacher Terms Pakistan “Our Real Enemy”; Reaffirms Call for Free Balochistan

WASHINGTON, DC:Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher said on Tuesday he would continue to support the Baloch right to self-determination even if relations between the United States and Pakistan completely normalize and Islamabad abandons its support for Taliban and Islamist groups.

He was speaking at the Zenger Room of the National Press Club in Washington DC at a crowded press conference with fellow congressmen Steve King and Louie Gohmert.

Rohrbacher, who is the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Oversight and Investigations, said support for his resolution on Balochistan was continuously increasing among the members of the Congress. Initially, only four legislators had supported the Baloch right to self-determination but now his resolution enjoyed the support of at least twelve others. He hoped support for the Baloch right to self-determination would steadily increase in the US Congress.

Subject: Call for US intervention in Balochistan
Dear Sir,
We would like to draw your attention towards the atrocities and gruesome violations of human rights of the Baloch in Pakistan.
For the last 9 years, the Baloch has been facing the onslaught of the brutal military establishment of Pakistan. The Pakistani state is waging a ruthless war in Balochistan in which thousands of innocent men, women and children have been mercilessly killed, hundreds of thousands have been displaced and thousands are missing. The state security agencies have targeted and physically eliminated a large number of prominent Baloch social, intellectual and political figures.
