The World Baloch Organization is on a Mission to Illuminate and Eradicate Pakistan’s Human Rights Abuses

“The world’s most wanted terrorist was found living next to a Pakistan military base, and the person who helped find him has been imprisoned by Pakistan on treason charges. This alone is reason enough to question Pakistan’s involvement in global terrorism.” Bhawal Mengal

Robi Ludwig, Psy.D.

You may never have heard of The World Baloch Organization (WBO), but they are hoping that will soon change. The WBO is a human rights organization that lobbies against the human rights abuses committed by the Pakistan military and intelligence agencies against the Baloch people in its own country.

Balochistan, “the country of the Baloch,” which has existed since well before the seventh century AD, presently forms part of the three states of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Situated in southwest Pakistan, Balochistan is the country’s largest, most resource-rich, yet least developed province. Since the Pakistan government forcefully occupied Balochistan in 1948, the Baloch people report gross human rights violations perpetrated against its people which seldom surface in international media channels or decision-making forums.

The struggle for Balochistan’s independence: what went wrong?

The case for Balochistan’s sovereignty is a political question and it should be regarded as such even in the darkest moments of the nation’s history

Dr. Zaffar Baloch

What followed the 1948 invasion of the sovereign state of Balochistan by the Pakistani military was an armed revolt led by Prince Agha Abdul Karim, younger brother of the ruler of Kalat, Mir Ahmedyar Khan. The revolt ended in defeat.

Early Reminiscences of a Soldier, published in the daily Dawn (August 14, 1960), authored by Major General Akbar Khan who commanded Pakistan Army’s Seventh Regiment against Prince Karim’s insurgents, highlights interesting details of the Pakistani military occupation of Balochistan.

Carina Jahani: The Swedish linguist on a quest to save Balochi

They should learn Balochi because they want to keep their cultural heritage that is theirs alive; because they want to keep their identity that is theirs alive.

by : Sajid Hussain

In November last year, a Swedish woman stood in front of a dominantly Swedish audience in Stockholm urging them to vote in favour of a presentation about a ‘dying language’ they had probably never heard of.

She is Carina Jahani, a professor of Iranian languages at the Uppsala University. She was taking part in a research competition.

I cannot mourn : Dr Allah Nazar Baloch

The universe is dancing round the clock. Some in it are in grief. They have either lost a loved one or face natural and man-made tragedies. Poverty, hunger, thirst.

Some are losing their shine like a shooting star. Some are bored or lonely. Some have calmed down. They are in eternal rest.

When I look at galaxies, I see a billion of small and tiny crowds of stars. They are slowly changing their position and losing their light.

In the loving memory of uncle Noor Ahmad

written by : Sameer Mehrab

Karima called me while on her way to the Pearson airport, Toronto. She was heading to Montreal for the hearing of her asylum case which had been delayed for two years. She told me she had received a call from our younger sister back home that there were unconfirmed reports about the discovery of a mutilated body which some say is our missing uncle Master Noor Ahmed’s.

A schoolteacher, our uncle was abducted on July 28, 2016, by Pakistani security forces from Turbat, Balochistan. Since then no one had heard of him. He went missing like thousands of other Baloch.

As the day progressed, we were told the body was a few days old. It had been thrown away in an isolated area and it was found days later. It was deformed beyond recognition. But when Noor Ahmad’s nephew and elder brother went to the site they confirmed it was him.

Why this indifference towards Baloch?

Written by: Rahim Baloch

On August 4,1947, a conference was held in Delhi, presided over by Viceroy of the British India, Lord Mountbatten, and attended by the ruler of Balochistan, the Khan of Kalat, and representatives of the proposed state of Pakistan for determining the status of the Kalat state (Balochistan).

The three parties had agreed that Kalat was not a part of India, rather an independent state having treaty relations with Britain; therefore, not bound by the partition act to join either India or Pakistan.
