Toronto, March 25: Baloch National Movement – North America’s call to observe March 27 as black day was attended by Pakhtuns, Sindhis, Kurds and enlightened elements of the Canadian society at a Toronto meeting. Sovereign Balochistan was invaded and occupied by the Pakistani military in 1948. The public gathering was attended by people from all walks of life sharing democratic values and respect for freedoms and rights.
Mr. Tarek Fatah, guest of honour at the event spoke on the importance of understanding the history and the evil nature of the state of Pakistan. In his speech, Mr. Fatah described the events at Dacca University on March 25, 1971 when Pakistan Army soldiers massacred more than 200 students and teachers at the university dorms and hung their bodies from the poles and trees.
Toronto, March 29, 2014 – BHRC (Canada) held a meeting in Toronto to mark the Pakistani military invasion of Balochistan on March 27, 1948. The gathering of Baloch, Sindhis, Kashmiris, Ahwazi Arabs and Azeri Turks was addressed by speakers from various organizations. The event in Toronto was part of the Black Day observed throughout Balochistan to voice their dissent against the forced annexation of Baloch lands into Pakistan by an illegal military invasion.
QUETTA: A shutter-down and wheel-jam strike was observed in major parts of Balochistan on Thursday as part of a protest called by the Baloch National Front (BNF) against what they described as a forced accession of the province to Pakistan on March 27, 1948.
The strike was backed by other Baloch nationalist parties also against the accession.
On August 4, 1947, a tripartite agreement was signed between Pakistan, the British and Balochistan, called The Standstill Agreement, in which the sovereign status of Balochistan was accepted. The Khan declared Balochistan independent on August 11, 1947, three days before the independence of Pakistan.
Occupied Balochistan: The Baloch National Voice has announced to fully support the Baloch National Front’s call for a protest shutter down and wheel jam strike on 27 March against the illegal occupation of Balochistan.
The BNV further said that the civilized world instead of listening to propaganda of occupying state must understand the gravity of Balochistan situation. Pakistan wants to eliminate the Baloch nation by terming Balochistan conflict as an internal issue of Pakistan. “The use of chemical weapons against Baloch civilian population, the in-custody killing of abducted Baloch, the target killing of Baloch influential personalities and Baloch women are clear illustration of Pakistan intentions of committing Baloch genocide.”
