March 27 The Black Day
My dear Chinese Mothers!
Prof. Naela Quadri Baloch
I am writing to you with deep grief and heartache to convey the message of Baloch mothers, a mother’s absorbent heart can understand much by saying less from a mother’s aching heart. Our fourteen thousand loved ones including our daughters are abducted by Pakistan and Iran, we have received one thousand mutilated bodies of our gems like sons in last two years and this is a continuous daily base routine, their beloved bodies had uncountable wounds of severe torture, our women and children are facing deaths due to bombardment on our civil populations, burning alive in their homes, poisoning of water resources, state control on mobility and supplies of food and medicines. We understand this is painful for you but may be shocking to know that all this is baked and backed by China.
Canada, Vancouver: International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (IVBMP) and Baloch Human Rights Council of Canada ( BHRC) organised a one day awareness campaign at Vancouver Art Gallery to inform common Canadians about ongoing Human Rights violations in Balochistan. The Baloch activists distributed pamphlets and displayed images innocents Baloch children and mothers and relatives of abducted Baloch appealing to the United Nations and international community to help release their abducted loved ones form the custody of Pakistan and Iran.
Gwadar with deeper Chinese involvement will become the new battleground of Baloch nationalism versus the Pakistani establishment and Chinese interests
When a person, in his opening lines, terms the May 28, 1998 Chaghai nuclear explosion as historic, it creates misgivings about the purpose of that write up. Mr Usama Nizamani in his article “Gwadar: an emerging paradigm for Pakistan and the region” (Daily Times, March 19, 2013) did just that. Celebrating any nuclear explosion as historic is a downright insult to the memory of Hiroshima and Nagasaki’s victims. It is analogous to celebrating ‘small pox’ and ‘Black Death’ as a blessing for mankind. A nuclear explosion that killed a mountain and adversely affects those living there can only be trumpeted as historic by those bent on destroying the world.
