Note: On the “International day for Enforce Disappeared” we are publishing this article again (it was first published on 19 April 2012) to pay tribute to Mahir Bibi Marri and her struggle for the safe recovery of her relative and other enforce disappeared Baloch.
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.

A sense of desperation and urgency seems to grip the Establishment in its policies regarding Balochistan. This is particularly evident in its militarization, its exploitation of resources and grabbing of real estate. Their urge is so overpowering that they have become heedless to the resentment and hostility that these policies generate among the people.

The calamity has been aggravated by incompetence, corruption and downright knavery in all projects and ventures undertaken there.Continue reading

Intl aid for flood victims in Balochistan will be used for military brutality. Dr Allah Nazar Baloch
Dr Allah Nazar Baloch, a pro-independence leader and head of the Balochistan Liberation Front, has said in a statement that Pakistani colonial projects and colonial systems are causing a clear increase in flood disasters in Balochistan. Dilapidated infrastructure and corrupt projects were washed away. On the other hand, more than a dozen dams have collapsed due to poor construction and could not withstand the water pressure. Balochistan has been submerged in floods, but the media and the Pakistani political system do not mention the flood and the flood victims. This alienation and indifference are enough to prove that our status is merely that of a slave nation and Pakistan’s interest lies in our resources and land. The Baloch nation is just a colonized in the Pakistani political system.Continue reading

26th August 2006 was a day of big loss for the Baloch nation. We lost the father figure of our nation Shaheed-e-Wattan Nawab Akbar Bugti. With every tragedy that falls on a nation, it either brings it together or shatters it apart. The martyrdom of Nawab Akbar Bugti brought the Baloch nation together. The fury of the Baloch nation could be seen in the streets from Karachi to Quetta. This is what living nations are made of.
