Mir Hyrbyair Marri’s Message for the Prof. Saba Dashtyari Memorial Reference in Toronto

Dear Organisers of this event,

I am sending this very short message just to say that it is our duty and moral responsibility to continue the struggle for liberation. It is also to pay my respects to Qandeel-e-Baloch professor Saba Dashtyari Baloch.

I cannot express in words the sacrifices of Baloch martyrs who had given the ultimate price for speaking the truth and exposing the occupying states’ atrocities against Baloch Nation.  They preferred death with dignity over living under constant slavery. I salute the families of Baloch martyrs and of those who are suffering extreme torture in the custody of Pakistan and Iran. I feel the pain of those families and want to assure them that we will not let the sacrifices of their loved ones who are our heroes go in vain.
