تحریر: میر محمد علی ٹالپر
ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

وہ کہ جنہیں جیلوں میں رکھا جا سکتا ہو انہیں ماورائے عدالت قتل کر دیا جاتا ہے، اسی طرح سے پختونخوا اور بلوچستان کی جیلوں کو قیدیوں کی گنجائش کی سطح پر رکھا جاتا ہے

Mir Muhammad Ali Talpurچند دن قبل ہیومن رائٹس کمیشن آف پاکستان (ایچ آر سی پی) کے ڈائریکٹرآئی اے رحمان صاحب نے اپنے مضمون ”قیدیوں کے حقوق“ (14 نومبر ، روزنامہ ڈان) میں قیدیوں کو لاحق خطرات پر حال ہی میں فیڈرل جوڈیشل اکیڈمی میں منعقد سیمینار کے بارے میں لکھا تھا جس میں یہاں کی عدلیہ کے درخشاں ستاروں نے شرکت کی تھی۔ قیدیوں کو درپیش دیگر مسائل کے علاوہ پنجاب اور سندھ کی جیلوں میں گنجائش سے زیادہ بھیڑ نے خصوصی توجہ حاصل کی کیونکہ پنجاب کی جیلوں میں قیدیوں کی گنجائش 21,527 ہے جن میں 52,318 قیدی رکھے گئے ہیں جبکہ سندھ میں 11,939 کی گنجائش کے برخلاف 14,119 قیدی موجود ہیں؛ اسے قطعاً ناقابل برداشت قرار دیا گیا۔

Why politics is necessary for students

November 26, 1967, is the foundation day of the Baloch Students’ Organization and it is now 49 years old.

By: Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurIn the intervening years, it has seen a lot of ups and downs but has proved its mettle in the Baloch national struggle and remains as its vanguard, the nursery for the future Baloch leadership. Now it has to shoulder even more responsibilities: to educate, both politically and academically, the Baloch youth because the Pakistani establishment considers the politically-educated youth as the greatest threat to its exploitation and injustices in Balochistan. The BSO-Azad upholds its legacy faithfully.

Baloch students and friends in Canada asked me write something on “Why politics is necessary for students”. What I wrote was read there at a seminar and here I am sharing it with you.

LONDON: Exiled Baloch nationalist leader Mir Sher Alam Marri has said that no individual has the right to decide about the Marri resources and any attempt to utilise these resource will cause chaos, causing damage and internal divisions.
