Who is knocking the Door?

“Pakistan army enjoys the largest sum of GDP in the name of defence; However, could not protect us from a unleashed bands of thugs”Jalila Haider

Ali Asghar

After 2004 Quetta carnage  when Ashura procession was attacked which left 50 dead and more than 100 wounded (all of victims were from Hazara community), once again Hazara community in Balochistan came under intensive attacks in 2011 apparently by Sunni extremist groups Lashkar-e- Jangvi, and its affiliates which enjoy the backing of Pakistan Army. In reaction of incessant killings of their loved ones, Hazaras  set in a protest at Quetta with their corpses and refused to bury the dead bodies till the government wouldn’t arrest  the culprits and provide them justice. Ironically, then Chief Minister of Balochistan Aslam Raissani commented, “ what can I do, to provide you trucks load of tissue papers to wipe yours tears.” perhaps his remarks was a laughing stock for Pakistani media and its  viewers, in reality Raissani  meant more than that— a clear message to tell that civilian government was acting as a puppet that threads were being pulled somewhere else – General Headquarters (GHQ).

April 21: Martyred Grooms of Gwarjak, Balochistan

April 21 Martryed Grooms of Gawrjak

In the early hours of 21 April 2015 Pakistan army raids the village of Gwarjak in Mahskay Balochistan. Harass and brutally beats up women and children and abduct seven young men including three newly-wed grooms. In the afternoon the Levies Tehseeldar (local police inspector) receives a call from Pakistan Army Camp that they have killed four Baloch rebels in an encounter. So come here and collect the bodies.

In fact all four of them were abducted, extremely tortured and extra-judicially executed in the Pakistan Army Camp. It is note worthy that all four were closely related to Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) commander Sheh Akhtar Nadeem. Basit Baloch was his brother; Aijaz and Aftab were his cousins as well as brothers in law; Shahnawaz was a close relative. Basit, Aijaz and Shahnawaz were newly-wed grooms.This is how Pakistan Army is committing and justifying Baloch genocide in the enlightened age of 21st Century.

All India Baloch Conference Jacobabad

(28, 29, and 30th December 1932)

Note

Our generation has been listening about “Balochistan and All India Baloch Conference” of Jacobabad since our childhood. All of our lives we have been curious about its resolutions, elected cabinet and the next conference in Hyderabad.

In recent years we were fortunate enough to be able to read all about this conference both in Urdu and English in various books and magazines. We got the photocopies of the original document which was circulating amongst the academia. Then, the verified copy was published in a research paper of renowned scholar, Dr Inam ul Haq Kausar (Yousuf Aziz Magsi, Balochistan Review – Vol XII-XIII, 2004, UoB Quetta Pp. 133-140). We compared this document with its Urdu version, and found it correct. Some minor spelling mistakes in the names of the individuals are corrected.
