Subject: Call for US intervention in Balochistan
We would like to draw your attention towards the atrocities and gruesome violations of human rights of the Baloch in Pakistan.
For the last 9 years, the Baloch has been facing the onslaught of the brutal military establishment of Pakistan. The Pakistani state is waging a ruthless war in Balochistan in which thousands of innocent men, women and children have been mercilessly killed, hundreds of thousands have been displaced and thousands are missing. The state security agencies have targeted and physically eliminated a large number of prominent Baloch social, intellectual and political figures.

Early decades of 20th century was the period when the Baloch horizons were engulf in the dark shadows of despair, frustration and a growing sense of total defeat and helplessness. It was the period when the Baloch resistance against the British and its ally the Persians, had been ruthlessly crushed. It was the period when under different boundary commissions, the body of the Baloch land had been dissected and it had been divided into various parts controlled by the Persians, the British and the Afghans.
In Eastern Balochistan, the glorious resistance of the Baloch led by Marri, Bugti, Mengal, Zehri and Nosherwanis had ended in total defeat. Leader of the Bugti tribe Mir Ghulam Hussain Bugti had been killed by the British and his head had been put on public display. Legendary guerilla fighter Noora Mengal had been imprisoned. Sardar Noordin Mengal and Mir Azad Khan Nosherwani had been neutralized. A crushing defeat had been delivered to the Marri by the British forces. The champions of the Baloch resistance against the British Mir Baloch Khan Nosherwani and Nawab Khan Mohammad Zarakzai had been killed.
Baloch Human Rights Council (UK) strongly condemns the brutal and inhuman killings of Sindhi Nationalist leaders by the death squads of Pakistani intelligence agencies.
