مبہم سچ اور مستحکم جھوٹ تبصرہ : میر محمد علی ٹالپر ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

آنکہ بلوچ اپنے خلاف مظالم کے جواب میں عوامی سطح پر ڈرامائی انداز میں ردعمل نہیں دکھاتے جس نے ان کی حالت زار کو مبہم کرکے رکھ دیا ہے

 

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

متعدد انعام یافتہ کتاب، ”پھٹنے آموں کا ایک کیس“ کے مصنف مسٹر محمد حنیف نے مجھ سے بڑی گرمجوشی کیساتھ اپنی کتاب ”وہ بلوچ جو لاپتہ نہیں رہے اور دیگر وہ جو ہیں“ کی گزشتہ ماہ کراچی ادبی میلے میں منعقد ہونیوالی تقریب رونمائی میں میزبانی کی درخواست کی۔ کتاب میں لاپتہ ڈاکٹر دین محمد بلوچ کی بیٹی سمن بلوچ حنیف سے ایک انتہائی تکلیف دہ سوال پوچھتی ہے کہ، ”اگر وہ میرے والد کو پھانسی دینا چاہتے ہیں تو وہ اس کو عدالت میں لائیں، اس پر مقدمہ چلائیں اور ہم سب کے سامنے اسے پھانسی دیں۔ ہمیں کم از کم یہ جان کر اطمینان ہوگا کہ وہ اب نہیں رہے۔ لیکن اگر وہ اسے تین سال، چار سال تک زندہ رکھتے ہیں، اگر وہ ہر روز اس پر تشدد کرتے ہیں اور پھر اسے قتل کرکے اس کی لاش کو پھینک دیتے ہیں، آخر اس کا مقصد کیا ہے؟“ تقریب کو شروع کرنے کیلئے میں نے یہ سوال وہاں موجود پینل کے ارکان کے سامنے رکھا اور حنیف نے بجا طور پر کہا کہ، ”وہ اسلئے ایسا کرتے ہیں کہ وہ اس سے بری الذمہ ہو سکتے ہیں۔“ میرا خیال یہ تھا کہ یہاں سزا سے استثنیٰ کا ایک کلچر غالب ہے اور یہ ان لوگوں کو خوفزدہ کرنے کیلئے کیا جاتا ہے جو اسٹابلشمنٹ کی طاقت سے منحرف ہیں اور اپنے حقوق کیلئے لڑرہے ہیں۔

COMMENT : Obscured truths and established lies — Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

That the Baloch do not respond dramatically publically to the atrocities against them has relegated their plight to obscurity

Mir Mohammad Ali TalpurMr Mohammad Hanif, author of the multiple prize-winning book, A Case of Exploding Mangoes had kindly asked me to moderate the launch of The Baloch Who is Not Missing and Other Who Are at the Karachi Literary Festival last month. In the book, Saman Baloch, daughter of missing Dr Deen Mohammad Baloch, asks Hanif a very poignant question, “If they want to hang my father, they should bring him to the court, put him on trial and hang him in front of us. We will at least have the satisfaction of knowing that he is no more. But if they keep him alive for three years, four years and if they torture him every day and then kill him and dump his body what is the point of that? To begin the session I had put this question to the panelists and Hanif rightly said, “They do it because they can get away with it.” My view was that a culture of impunity prevails and this is done to intimidate those who defy the might of the establishment and fight for their rights.

The missing persons of Baluchistan – by Jahanzeb Hussain

how many moreI’ve seen their silent faces
They scream so loud
If they were to speak these words
They’d go missing too
Another woman on the torture table
What else can they do ?
One day we’ll dance on their graves
One day we’ll sing our freedom
One day we’ll laugh in our joy
And we’ll dance (twice)
Hey Mr. Pinochet, you’ve sown a bitter crop
It’s foreign money that supports you
One day the money is going to stop
No wages for your torturers
No budget for your guns
Can you think of your own mother
Dancin’ with her invisible son?

These lines taken from ‘They Dance Alone” a protest song composed by the English musician Sting and dedicated to the persons who went missing during the reign of terror unleashed by the military dictatorships in Chile and Argentina, which also fully depicts the grief and the determination of the mothers, sisters, daughters, sons, wives, brothers and fathers of the persons who have gone missing in Baluchistan like in the southern cone of Latin America in 70’s and 80’s.

Quetta : Several family members of forced-disappeared Baloch have appeared before the Chief Justice and narrated their ordeals on Tuesday during a hearing. The CJ who, has resumed hearing cases of Baloch activists, has said he didn’t know what was going here [in Balochistan]. “Even yesterday four bullet riddle bodies were found in Killi Kabo. The evidence of Mehran Baloch and Mohammad Tariq’s abduction was given to the security agencies but instead of their release they were killed and dumped”, remarked the CJ.
During hearing the brother of Samiullah Baloch said that his brother was presented to courts by the police on several occasions but now the authorities were in denial about his whereabouts.

The aged mother of Hafiz Saeed-ul-Rehman Baloch burst into tears and said “We hope our loved ones will be released before 2013 but if you (CJ) are gone then we do not expect to see of our beloved relatives.” The CJ in response said “It is not like that. Have faith in God.”
