You are cordially invited to an event on marking the “Illegal occupation of Balochistan on March 27, 1948”.
To forfeit the independence of a Nation is a worse kind of violation of a human’s right. Balochistan, was an independent, secular and democratic country before March 27, 1948, forcefully occupied by Pakistani Army, since then Baloch people are fighting to regain their independence from this illegal occupation by Pakistan and Iran. Pakistan and Iran are conducting slow motion genocide in both Eastern and Western Balochistan so as to silence the voices of secularism, democracy and world peace in the region.

BHRC (Canada) Responds to Accusations by Ahmer Mustikhan
Toronto, Jan.-12-12 – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) has expressed concern over the string of emails received by BHRC office bearers in Toronto and Vancouver from Ahmer Mustikhan, a self-proclaimed journalist and resident of Washington, DC. The disturbing contents of the emails stated baseless accusations and threats to Aziz Baloch, Vice President, BHRC (Canada) and co-ordinator, International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons. In his emails, Mustikhan, founder of American Friends of Balochistan, accused Aziz Baloch of supporting a murder that took place in Balochistan (southwest province of Pakistan). Furthermore, in his emails, Mustikhan threatened Aziz Baloch that he would report him to the Canadian authorities, police, and RCMP for his alleged support to terrorism and murdering of civilians, namely Imtiaz Ahmed of Balochistan National Party by Baloch militants in late December 2010. This document is a case presentation of Mustikhan’s history of yellow journalism, blackmail, extortion, harassment, and intimidation of Baloch political personalities and activists. He calls his writings ‘guerrilla journalism’ and believes that he can get whatever he wants from his victims by intimidating them of dire consequences if the demands were not met.
