NCRI – The Iranian regime’s notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) last week murdered in cold blood two young Iranian Baloch one of whom was still a minor, according to information received from Iran’s south-eastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
The two victims, identified as Allah-Noor Salarzehi, 17, and Saeed Salarzehi, 21, were walking in Rajai Street of Zahedan when agents of the MOIS driving down the street opened fire on them last Friday, May 13, 2016. Both victims died of their wounds.

In the early hours of 21 April 2015 Pakistan army raids the village of Gwarjak in Mahskay Balochistan. Harass and brutally beats up women and children and abduct seven young men including three newly-wed grooms. In the afternoon the Levies Tehseeldar (local police inspector) receives a call from Pakistan Army Camp that they have killed four Baloch rebels in an encounter. So come here and collect the bodies.
In fact all four of them were abducted, extremely tortured and extra-judicially executed in the Pakistan Army Camp. It is note worthy that all four were closely related to Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) commander Sheh Akhtar Nadeem. Basit Baloch was his brother; Aijaz and Aftab were his cousins as well as brothers in law; Shahnawaz was a close relative. Basit, Aijaz and Shahnawaz were newly-wed grooms.This is how Pakistan Army is committing and justifying Baloch genocide in the enlightened age of 21st Century.

This is how war-ridden Balochistan’s Baloch mothers, sisters, daughters, wives and lovers keep the memories of their loved ones alive now a day when their loved ones are brutally butchered by occupational forces of Pakistan.
Here a group of young women sing a praise song (naazenk) dedicated to the three martyred grooms of Gwarjak Mashkay who were brutally tortured and martyred at a Pakistan Army camp on April 21st 2015 after being abducted from their wedding beds.
Their names were Basit, Shahnawaz and Aijaz including his brother Aftab. Their crime was that they were Baloch political activists and closely related to the legendary Baloch commander of Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) Sheh Akhtar Nadeem.

میں اپنی تقریر کا آغاز کتاب کے ایک حوالے کیساتھ شروع کرنے جا رہا ہوں۔ یہ اقتباس میرے نزدیک پاکستان کے موضوع پر لکھی گئی ایک اہم کتاب سے ہے جسکا نام ’گریٹ گیم کی پرچھائی: تقسیم ہند کی ان کہی داستان‘ ہے، جسے نریندراسنگھ ساریلا نے لکھا ہے جوکہ ایک ریٹائرڈ بھارتی سفارتکار اور ماونٹ بیٹن کے اے ڈی سی تھے۔ انہیں برطانوی آرکائیوز تک بے مثال حد تک رسائی حاصل تھی۔ اپنی کتاب میں انہوں نے تفصیلی اور حتمی ثبوت پیش کیے ہیں جو یہ بتاتے ہیں کہ حتیٰ کہ مارچ 1945ء کے اوائل میں ونسٹن چرچل اور برطانوی جنرل اسٹاف نے یہ فیصلہ کیا تھا کہ اسٹراٹیجک وجوہات کی بناء پر تقسیم ہند ضروری ہے۔ انہوں نے جان بوجھ کر پاکستان کے قیام کیلئے کام کیا کیونکہ جناح نے ان سے فوجی سہولیات فراہم کرنے کا وعدہ کیا تھا اور نہرو نے ایسا کرنے سے انکار۔

After the local and international human rights bodies’ widespread condemnation of Pakistani security establishment’s notorious war strategy of “Kill and Dump Policy” regarding the detained Baloch activists and common people to crush the Baloch freedom movement, it is now replaced with the policy of “Extra-Judicial Killings” through staged encounters and showing them as militants via its controlled media as there is a complete media blackout in Balochistan where no independent investigator or journalist is allowed to visit.
Within a short span of time Balochistan has witnessed hundreds of cases of extra-judicial killings of previously abducted Baloch. A collaborator working for Pakistani security agencies who accompanied them during numerous military offensives narrates the horrific details.
New World Summit: Stateless Democracy is a three-day assembly that explores the possibilities of uncoupling the practice of democracy from the construct of the nation-state.
