UN and International Community should pressurise Pakistan to peacefully withdraw from Balochistan: Hyrbyair Marri
London: Baloch patriot leader Hyrbyair Marri in a statement from London said that Baloch nation got rid of British occupier and gained their independence on 11 August 1947. The Baloch freedom was short lived as another occupier (the illegitimate creation British) Pakistan, which is devoid of any humanity and rational, moral and historical legitimacy, invaded Baloch motherland only eight months after Balochistan’s independence from Britain. Ever since, this bogus fanatic state has been committing countless war crimes against Baloch people and violating all international laws in the book in Balochistan.
London: In a large gathering organized by Baloch Human Rights Council, the Baloch community in London observed the independence day of Balochistan. The meeting was held on 11 August 2013 in the Birkbeck University of London.
The meeting was to highlight the importance of the month of August in the Baloch history in which important happenings changed the destiny of the Baloch people. In August 1928, the Iranians were finally succeeded in occupying the Baloch chiefdom of western Balochistan with the use of brutal military prowess. On 11 August 1947, the Baloch State of Kalat declared its independence in the wake of British withdrawal from India but after a few months of independence, it was occupied by Pakistan in 1948.
