WASHINGTON, DC: Pakistan is dragging its feet on issuing visa to the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances [AFAD] to go to Pakistan and meet with family members of the victims in Balochistan and elsewhere.
This was stated Saturday evening by Mary Aileen D. Bacalso, secretary-general of the AFAD, at the Lafayette Park in front of the White House where the Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International held its annual camp in solidarity with the torture victims around the world to mark the international day against torture.
GENEVA, JUNE 16: A Balochistan independence worker warned the Western world and the Baloch Diaspora about rogue state of Pakistan and some roguish elements masquerading as Baloch activists who are hell bent upon damaging the Baloch fight for peace, justice and liberty.
Addressing a Press conference in the presence of Mehran Baluch, Baloch people’s representative at the U.N. Human Rights Council at the Geneva Press Club here on Wednesday morning, Ahmar Mustikhan, founder of the American Friends of Balochistan blasted Pakistan intelligence services for shadowing and hounding Baloch independence activists in spite of the freedoms of the West.
Mustikhan also cautioned the Baloch Diaspora against the Fifth Column in their rank whose loyalties are unclear and whose main task seems to be confusing the international movement for the liberation of Balochistan.
Following is the full text of Mustikhan’s speech:
GENEVA, June 16, 2010: A young Baloch human rights activist in London and Geneva accused Islamabad and Teheran of carrying out a genocide of the Baloch people.
Noordin Mengal, a grandson of Balochistan independence leader Baba-i-Azadi Nawab Khair Baksh Marri, who is also a grandson of former chief minister and nationalist leader Sardar Ataullah Mengal,
said Balochistan was once a unified and independent country is today divided between three countries — Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

An Interview with Ahmar Mustikhan
By STEWART J. LAWRENCE
US news reports about the widening war in the “Af-Pak” region have made increasing reference to the presence of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Baluchistan, a Texas-sized swath of territory located in southern Pakistan. Yet Americans remain surprisingly unaware that Baluchistan is home to an insurgent movement that is not aligned with either Al-Qaeda or the Taliban and that has fought for national independence from Pakistan for more than 60 years. In this exclusive interview conducted on December 27, noted Pakistani Baluch journalist, Ahmar Mustikhan, founder and director of the American Friends of Baluchistan, spoke with me about the current regional conflict and about Baluchistan’s appeal to the West for military and diplomatic support for its struggle.
