اپنے اطراف کے کچھ احوال – شہزاد بلوچ

ہزاروں فرعون صفت لوگوں کی پناہ گاہ پاکستان جو ایک جہنم سے کم نہیں،عجیب ہے ایک منبر پر بیٹھا مُلا اس عملی جہنم میں رہنے والے لوگوں کو، اُس جہنم کو بیان کر کے دھمکیاں دے جو نہ تو اُسنے کبھی دیکھا ہے نہ تو اسکے آباؤ اجداد نے،مطلب کوئی ایسا انسان پاکستان میں نہیں بستا جو اپنے سے کمزور کو خوف میں مبتلا کرنے میں ناکام رہا ہو۔مُلا اور مولوی سالوں سے جنت و دوزخ کے ختم نہ ہونے والے قصے سُنا کر کئیوں کو جنت کا گاجر دکھا کر موت کی گھاٹ اتار چکا ہے۔ کچھ لوگ بُھٹو کو زندہ دکھا کر یسّو مسیح کا درجہ دے چکے ہیں اور باقی عوام کاغذی شیر نواز شریف کے ابُھرنے والے معجزات کے پکے مُرید بن چکے ہیں، جو اکثر لاہور اور گِرد و نواح میں دیکھنے کو ملتے ہیں،جیسے میٹرو،لیپ ٹاپ، رنگ برنگی ٹیکسیاں اور تازہ شہہ سرخیوں میں گدھے کا گوشت سرِ فہرست ہے۔

سی پیک کا جنازہ :تحریر پیردان بلوچ

دنیا میں ہر گزرتے لمحے کے ساتھ حالات میں بھی ڈرامائی انداز میں تبدیلیاں رونما ہورہی ہیں اگر گذشتہ پانچ سے دس سالوں کا ایک طائرانہ جائزہ لیا جائے تو دنیا بھر میں حیرت انگیز تبدیلیاں وقوع پذیر ہوئی ہیں جو یقیناً بعض ممالک کے داخلی اور خارجی پالیسیوں پر بھی گہرے اثرات چھوڑ جاتے ہیں۔

جہاں ایسے اصلاحات استعمال کیے جاتے ہوں کہ ہمارا کوئی مستقل دشمن نہیں اور نہ ہی کوئی مستقل دوست صرف ہمارے مفادات مستقل ہیں یا پھر یوں کہیے کہ دشمن کا دشمن ہمارا دوست ہے ۔۔

Balochistan: Seven Decades Of Insurgency In Pakistan’s Restive South – Analysis

The insurgency began less than a year after Pakistan’s independence from colonial rule in August 1947, when in March 1948 Pakistan dispatched troops to annex the southwestern area which was then known as Kalat

By Michael Hart

Next year will signal 70 years since the beginning of a fierce separatist insurgency fought in Pakistan’s troubled southern province of Balochistan. Over much of the last seven decades the conflict has rumbled on at a relatively low intensity, punctuated by five distinct periods of heightened violence. The current flare-up – which ignited in the mid-2000s – has proved by far the most enduring. And amid rising tensions in recent years, it appears there is no end in sight to Pakistan’s longest – yet most under-reported – war.

Brutal Pakistan Army after Balochistan now haunts Sindh

No state, which is part of the UN, should be allowed to abduct and kill its own citizens with such impunity as Pakistan, especially its army, has been doing in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and, now Sindh

By Allabaskh

Sindh is now fast becoming the new killing field for Pakistan Army. Scores of Sindhis, mostly those who have been raising their voice against injustice and human rights violations, are disappearing into secret prisons, detained illegally, tortured and many of them then brutally killed and their bodies dumped unceremoniously. What is happening in Sindh today is what has been happening in Balochistan for decades.

Missing stories from Sindh

Punhal Sario’s abduction, followed by more disappearances, has raised questions about Sindh’s missing persons

By: Fehmida Riaz

Followed by protests and a long march by the families of Baloch missing persons, of late it is the missing persons of Sindh that are making headlines. The abduction of Punhal Sario on August 3, a renowned human rights activist, head of Sindh Hari Porhyat Council and convener of the recently established Voice for Missing Persons (VMP) Sindh, has shaken many human rights activists and organisations.

A few days after Sario went missing, on the evening of August 7, three more well-known social activists were picked up from their homes in Mithi city of Tharparkar. According to their families, teacher and educationist Partab Shivani, teacher and writer Naseer Kumbhar, and a leader of Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM) Mohammad Umer, were ‘abducted’ by plainclothes officials along with Tharparkar police personnel. Tharparkar SSP Ameer Saud Magsi told local journalists that he has no information regarding their ‘abduction’.
