Tehreek e Nifaz-e-Aman was widely attributed to Siraj Raisani, of which he reportedly himself had also bloated about in many tribal meetings

On a cold night of a January, armed men barged into house in a cul-de-sec and within minutes an elderly man was taken out of the house. He was forced onto his knees and a bullet was fired in his temple. The old man dropped on his face and blood gushed onto his beard. No questions were asked and the elderly man was not told any of his crimes. The cold summary execution lasted for few minutes only. The armed men jumped back into their vehicles and disappeared in the dead of night, leaving behind only the thick smoke of SUVs, a bleeding body and a family wretched for eternity.
ANI/UK/24 July 2018: Baloch national leader and head of Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) Hyrbyair Marri has urged the people of Balochistan to boycott the Pakistan general elections.
In a statement, Marri said, “The Balochs should boycott Pakistani elections like the previous one in Balochistan because through these polls, Pakistan will prolong its brutalities and slavery on Balochistan.”
Marri further said that refusing to vote would be the voice of freedom of the Balochs before the world, and urged them to do their utmost to refrain from taking part in the polls.

Re: A Baluch-Program by VOA
Dear Honorable Congressman Rohrabacher:
I have the honor to present this letter to thank you for your championship of liberty and to ask for your support for a Baluch-language program by VOA. Such a program will: definitely attract millions of Baluch viewers; improve the US image among Baluch by promoting American values such as democracy, rule of law, and human rights; counter the hateful propaganda of religious extremists in Baluchistan; counter the ongoing campaign by Iran and Pakistan (the main sources of Shiite and Sunni terrorism respectively) to Talibanize the Baluch population; and serve the overall US strategic interests in the region. In addition, VOA already broadcasts in all other languages spoken in Iran (Persian, Kurdish, Azari, Arabic). Therefore, a Baluchi program will also fill a very important gap in VOA coverage.
BALOCHISTAN: Mother and two sisters of a missing Baloch child have also been ‘taken away’ by Pakistani security forces, The Balochistan Post has learned from reliable sources.
The ‘heart-wrenching’ incident happened yesterday (22 July 2018) in Alangi, Mashkay.
According to sources, Personnel of Pakistani security forces in various vehicles raided house of Allah Baksh, and forcibly took away 55-year-old Noor Malik, and her two daughters 22-year-old Haseena and 18-year-old Sameena.
Increasing attacks by the Islamic State in Balochistan are connected to Pakistan’s failed strategy of encouraging and using Islamist militants to crush Baloch rebels and separatists.

Mr. Akbar is a journalist from Balochistan.
On Friday, several hundred tribesmen and students from religious seminaries gathered at a public meeting in Mastung, a town in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province, to hear Siraj Raisani, a 55-year-old politician from the Balochistan Awami Party.
As he appeared on stage wearing dark sunglasses, the crowd cheered, whistled and raised their hands, in a gesture affirming their loyalty to him. “O! Brave people of Balochistan!” said Mr. Raisani, who was known and feared for his strong ties to the Pakistani military. Before he could utter a second sentence, a suicide bomber blew himself up near the stage. The explosion killed Mr. Raisani and 149 of his supporters, and injured 186 others.
