بابا مری ایک انقلابی صوفی – کریمہ بلوچ

چند سال پہلے جب میری ملاقات بابا مری کے ساتھ نہیں ہوئی تھی میں نے انکے جلاوطنی کے زمانے کے ایک دوست سے انکے متعلق پوچھا کہ بابا کیسے مزاج کے انسان ہیں؟ انہوں نے جواب میں صرف اتنا کہا کہ آپ نے کبھی گوتم بدھ کے بارے میں سنا ہے؟ بس انہیں دیکھ کر گوتم بدھ کا گمان ہوتا ہے، جلاوطنی میں جب ہم ساتھ تھے تو وہ خود بیلچہ لے کر اپنے رہائش گاہ کی چھت پر جمی برف ہٹاتے تھے. وہ غرور سے نا واقف انسان ہیں۔

The Fallout From Pakistan’s Nuclear Tests

May 28 is officially a “Day of Greatness” for Pakistan, but for many Balochs it’s a black day.

By Shah Meer Baloch

On May 28 each year, Pakistan proudly celebrates “Youm-e-Takbir,” which translates as the “Day of Greatness,” to commemorate the country’s first successful detonation of nuclear devices. But the locals in Balochistan’s Chagai district, and citizens all across Balochistan, see May 28 as a “black day.”

The locals still suffer as a result of the nuclear explosions the Pakistani government set off in the Ras Koh Mountains 19 years ago. The new generation of Baloch inhabitants in the region is plagued with serious diseases stemming from those blasts. And all in Balochistan are constantly reminded of the promises made at the time by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif (then serving his second of what would be three terms, spread out over 17 years) to invest in health, education, roads, and infrastructure in the province — promises that have yet to be fulfilled.

Sher Muhammad Marri

Mujahid Barelvi remembers a forgotten hero of the Baloch struggle. Translated from the Urdu by Babar Mirza 

It is a great tragedy for this country in general and Balochistan in particular that Sher Muhammad Marri – who fought an armed struggle in the mountains during the 1950s and ‘60s and was imprisoned in different jails during the ‘70s – is hardly ever remembered in Baloch politics. Even most of the Baloch wouldn’t know where he is buried, for Sher Muhammad Marri was not a sardar or nawab whose politics and legacy had to be kept alive by his sons.

The day my lamenting eyes run out of tears

The eyes of the night of sorrow shall lose all light

The dream of Shaheed Nawab Akbar Bugti lives on

by Juma Baloch

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.
