COMMENT: In the shadow of the gun (Part 1) — Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

During the 1973-1977 army action in conflict zones, thousands of innocent people were killed, tens of thousands were internally displaced

Mr Ikram Sehgal’s “Of Empire and Army” (Newsline, March 2012) is a bundle of misinformation and bias against the Baloch. Perturbed that the media holds the security establishment solely responsible for the Balochistan crisis, he claims, “Most of our problems stem from jumping to conclusions that are based on misinformation, and then deliberately distorting those half-truths to suit mass perception.” He feels, “Disproportionate media projection of the separatist leaders encourages ethnic divisions and violence.” He probably thinks the Baloch struggle and the atrocities by the state are a figment of the media’s imagination.

BALOCHISTAN – Apr 21: Baloch Pro-independence leader Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch in a statement has said that on April 18 Tehreek e Nafaz e Aman has issued a threat to the newspapers and media to target his young sons Nodan Baloch and Tamoochan Baloch is in fact a threat primarily issued by Pakistan Army and I.S.I in order to cover up their heinous crimes against Baloch nation and humanity and to hide their blood thirsty face to the world as they are using fake names to propagate against Baloch freedom fighters and install fear in the minds of Baloch masses. But, my sons are not above the national struggle, neither my sons nor I are above the thousands of martyrs and the people who are struggling for Baloch freedom, and Baloch nation already knows the barbarian actions and character of the occupying forces.

Mahir Bibi Marri – (The Iron Lady) By Diagoh Murad

Imagine you are forced to live your all life alone without any relative in your life, forcedly taken, beaten & killed & you didnt got the chance to see their faces for the last time. The very thought of living alone makes you shiver because it is hardly impossible for a human to even live a second without anybody giving you a back support.

Now lets put a woman in this example when her husband was dragged, beaten, manhandled & later bristled with bullets infront of her and the children, she suffered the most horrific sight but didn’t flinched because of her children, when the assailant were done they slapped her & ordered her not to drag any judicial inquiries in this or she will face the dire consequences. She didn’t reacted nor did she went for the police neither she went for judicial inquiries hoping that the worst was over, but she was wrong.

Balochistan: Time for a ceasefire and political settlement

Proposals for military de-escalation & a referendum on self-determination

 By Peter Tatchell, human rights campaigner
The case for a negotiated political settlement in Pakistani-annexed and occupied Balochistan is overwhelming. The Baloch people have a right to live without persecution and to decide their own destiny. History is on their side.

Much of what now constitutes Balochistan was a self-governing British Protectorate from 1876. The Baloch people secured their independence from Britain in 1947. The following year, they were invaded and incorporated into Pakistan. They did not vote for incorporation. Their consent was neither sought nor given.

خموشی ہمیشہ سنہری نہیں ہوتی تبصرہ : میر محمد علی ٹالپر ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

بلوچستان میں 1970 کے عشرے کی جدوجہد کے دوران، سہولیات میسر نہیں تھیں اور تمام مواصلات منہ زبانی یا تحریری پیغامات کے ذریعے ہوتی تھی۔ تحریری پیغامات، جن سے مجرم قرار دیا جاسکے، جہاں تک ممکن ہوتا، گریز کیا جاتا، یعنی اگر کوئی بھی شخص اس طرح کسی خط کے ساتھ پکڑا جاتا تو مارا جاتا

آواز ایک انسانی تحفہ ہے؛ اس سے پیار اور اسکا استعمال کرنا چاہئے، ممکنہ حد تک کُلّی طور پر انسانی تقریر کی ادائیگی۔ بے اختیاری اور     خاموشی ایک ساتھ چلتی ہیں “ (مارگریٹ آٹ وُڈ)۔ کسی مظلوم اورجبرزدہ عوام کی خاموشی ایک ناقابل معافی جرم ہے کیونکہ ’بے اختیاری اور خاموشی ایک ساتھ چلتی ہیں‘ اور وہ لوگ جو خاموش رہتے ہیں ابدی غلامی ان کا مقدر ہوتی ہے۔ جب مظلوم خاموش رہے، تو یہ صرف ظالم کو زیادہ سختی سے ظلم کرنے کی حوصلہ افزائی کرتی ہے کیونکہ دنیا ان کی خاموشی کے نتیجے میں ان کی حالت زار سے بے خبر رہتی ہے۔ وہ مظلوم جو خاموش رہنے کا انتخاب کرتے ہیں ظالم کو اسکے ناپاک مقاصد حاصل کرنے میں مدد دیتے ہیں۔ بولنا اور ہوشیاری اور مہارت سے بولنامظلوم عوام پر فرضِ واجب ہے۔
