Khair Bakhsh Marri

He said the the hand of so called friendship being extended to us has the blood of Bengalis on it. The massacre in Bengal is too fresh to be forgotten. He said what’s the guarantee that the same hand will not shed our ( Baloch/Pashtun) blood?

Afrasiab Khattak

In the general elections of 1970 my organization, Pashtun Students Federation supported National Awami Party (NAP), a party of progressive and nationalist political forces with a strong base in Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. It was at this stage that I came to know about the main leaders of the Party. Khair Bakhsh Mari (or KB as his close friends called him) emerged as one of the top leaders of the party in Balochistan. To many, this powerful chieftain or nawab of Mari Baloch tribe with an impressive personality, remained a mystery as despite being a member of an established sociopolitical elite he maintained a consistent and active interest in theory and practice of Marxism.

I followed his speeches in public meetings and media.

لاپتہ ڈاکٹر سعیداللہ بلوچ کے نام

تحریر: شہزاد بلوچ

ہم ایک ایسے معاشرے میں زندہ ہیں جہاں انسان کو اپنے خیالات کا اظہار کرنے یا پھر اپنے نقطہ نظر کو ظاہر کرنے کی بھی اجازت نہیں، مطلب موجودہ دور میں زندہ رہنا چاہتے ہو تو اپنے خیالات اور سوچ کو لاپتہ سمجھو ورنہ خود لاپتہ کردئیے جاؤ گے۔

ویسے تو خیر لاپتہ ہونے کے لئے کوئی شرائط مقرر نہیں مگر یہ آپکی قابلیت پر انحصار کرتا ہے کہ آپ کس وقت کس جگہ کس سے اور کیسے اختلافات رکھتے ہیں، آیا آپ کسی مذہبی بحث میں چھلانگ لگاتے پائے جاتے ہیں یا آپ ایک آزاد سیاسی سوچ رکھتے ہیں یا پھر آپ سچ کو تحریر یا بیان کرنے والے ایک ایماندار صحافی ہیں اور ہاں یاد رہے فوج کے متعلق بولنے یا لکھنے پر خصوصی طور پر آپکو سیکنڈوں میں تلاش کرلیا جائیگا، آپ گھر میں ہوں، یا بازار میں، ہاسٹل میں ہوں یا اسکول میں ، مریض ہوں یا ڈاکٹر، بس میں سوار ہوں یا اپنی گاڑی میں ، ہوٹل میں قیام ہو یا اپنے ہی بیڈ روم میں یہ وردی والے الہ دین کا چراخ رگڑ کر آپ تک باآسانی پہنچ سکتے ہیں۔

Is the Islamic State Now in Pakistan’s Balochistan Province?

daesh

How the Middle Eastern terrorist group found a home in Pakistan’s restive province.

By Shah Meer Baloch

Pakistan has been a hotbed of Islamic militants for years. Over 45 known terrorist and extremist organizations have sprung up or split off since the 1980s.  The government, however, has continued to deny that the Islamic State (ISIS) is present in the country. Speaking in London last year, then-Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif said “even a shadow of ISIS would not be allowed.” Senior officials in both Karachi and Punjab province have admitted, however, that their forces had carried out raids against ISIS militants.

Now it seems that the government is admitting to the presence of ISIS after the military says it thwarted planned ISIS attacks on foreign embassies and the Islamabad airport, according to military spokesman Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa.

Makrani was the toughest, fittest man I knew. He brought Baloch power and energy to the fore at a time when stuntmen didn’t do much

Wahid Lala, as he’s called, is the most famous resident of Gaondevi Dongri, a hillock in suburban Mumbai that 1,067 Balochi people call home. He is, after all, the first Baloch stunt driver in the Hindi film industry.
