مجھے ہمیشہ تعجب ہوتا ہے کہ بلوچ کو یہ بتانا کیوں ضروری ہے کہ وہ محب وطن اور پاکستان کے وفادار ہیں
چند روزقبل اسلام آباد کے نصب کیے ہوئے بلوچستان کے مبینہ طور پر مڈل کلاس سے تعلق رکھنے والے قومپرست وزیر اعلیٰ ڈاکٹر عبدالمالک نے ایک اجلاس میں کہا کہ انہوں نے مقامی لوگوں کو ان کی احساس محرومی دور کرنے کیلئے بڑے منصوبوں، بشمول چین پاکستان اقتصادی راہداری (سی پی ای سی) کے، میں شامل کرنے کا فیصلہ کیا ہے۔ انہوں نے اور کمانڈر سدرن کمانڈ لیفٹیننٹ جنرل عامر ریاض نے اس بات کا اعادہ کیا کہ سی پی ای سی خطے میں اقتصادی سرگرمیوں کو فروغ دیگی اور ایک بڑی تعداد میں روزگار کے مواقع پیدا کریگی۔ جنرل نے یہ بھی کہا کہ بلوچستان کے عوام محب وطن اور پاکستان کے وفادار ہیں۔ مجھے ہمیشہ تعجب ہوتا ہے کہ بلوچ کو یہ بتانا کیوں ضروری ہے کہ وہ محب وطن اور پاکستان کے وفادار ہیں؛ شاید اسٹابلشمنٹ یہ سوچتی ہے کہ اگر اس منتر کو مسلسل دہرایا جائے تو آخرکار بلوچ اپنے حقوق سے دستبردار ہوجائینگے اور راولپنڈی اور اسلام آباد کی ٹیبلوں سے بطور صدقہ جو کچھ بھی ان کی طرف پھینکا جائے وہ اسے قبول کرلیں گے۔
I always wonder why the Baloch have to be told that they are patriots and loyal to Pakistan
A few days back, Dr. Abdul Malik, the Islamabad-installed, allegedly middle-class nationalist Chief Minister (CM) of Balochistan, in a meeting said they had decided to engage the local people in major projects, including the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), to remove their sense of deprivation. He and the Commander Southern Command, Lieutenant General Aamir Riaz, reiterated that the CPEC would boost economic activity and create a large number of jobs in the region. The General also said that the people of Balochistan were patriots and loyal to Pakistan. I always wonder why the Baloch have to be told that they are patriots and loyal to Pakistan; perhaps the establishment thinks that if this mantra is constantly repeated, eventually the Baloch will forsake their rights and accept whatever is thrown to them in charity from the tables in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
Baloch national icon and Vice Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) Mama Qadeer Baloch is very ill. He went to the government run Bolan Medical Complex Hospital (BMCH) for treatment. But the doctors there excused treating him citing the strict orders of the Chief Minister (CM) Balochistan Dr. Malik Baloch not to treat him if he ever visits any of the doctors there. He prayed to treat him on humanitarian basis but the doctors said we cannot and if we do we will immediately be sacked as we cannot lose our job for you.
Mama Qadeer recently visited the passport office to renew his expiring passport but they also refused to issue him a new one citing Pakistan secret agencies’ strict orders not to do so. They also said that your name is listed in the Exit Control List (ECL). He argued that it is the job of Immigration Department not the Passport Office but to no avail.

Balochistan: In a fresh offensive, Pakistan Army killed five, injured many (including woman and children) and abducted eight from Kech, Balochistan.
According to local media reports Pakistan Army, in an early morning raid on Darmakol in Pidrak area of Turbat in Kech killed five locals.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has not spoken about the mass graves found in Balochistan. Chief Minister Dr. Malik Baloch has not uttered a word either. The mainstream national media has systematically snubbed the story. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have not issued statements. Nevertheless, that does not help in keeping the world ignorant about the shocking mass mass graves of Balochistan in the age of social media. There is widespread anger among the people of Balochistan and those who believe in human rights across the world over such brutal acts as well as over the silence of the Pakistani government authorities and the media. They are trying to cover up the whole issue in an attempt to protect those involved in these crimes against humanity.
The grueling historic long march by the relatives of Baloch missing persons and extra-judicially killed persons having started on October 27th finally reached Karachi on the 22nd of November. They spent 27 days on the road walking thirty kilometers or more daily without a break. They were no extreme sports practitioners who would easily survive the rigors of this walk but were ordinary folk women, children and men, Mama Qadeer is 70 year old and Ali Haider the wheelbarrow boy 10 years old, who survived this bitter test of their love and respect for their loved ones disappeared or killed by the Pakistani state under a systematic vicious ‘dirty war’ of which Baloch are victims. The blisters, the aches, the inconvenience, the cold, the blazing autumn sun did not deter these brave souls from surpassing Gandhi’s 390 kilometer Salt March of 1930. This march not only proved their love for their relatives but also their dedication to the cause those relatives died and disappeared for. Their march may be over but they and their supporters understand that the journey is far from over.
The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons long march reached Karachi from Quetta on Friday after walking for 27 day.
The march set off from Quetta on 27 October 2013 was led by Mama Qadeer Baloch, Farzana Majeed Baloch and Bibi Gul Baloch. Many family members of enforced-disappeared Baloch also joined the foot march as it passed thorough different towns of Balochistan.
BALOCHISTAN: Pakistan army has killed and dumped teenager Izzat Baloch, son of Tangi Baloch. Izzat was abducted on November 8th, 2013 from Maheer area of Mand, when the occupying Pakistani army raided the house of Tangi Baloch and abducted five from the family, later four of whom were released. The central spokesperson of the Baloch Student Organization – Azad said in press release.
The Spokesperson also condemned the attack on Ahmed Jan house in Dawnk, Turbat. The spokesperson also declared that Waleed Baloch, son of Ahmed Jan is not associated the BSO-Azad in anyway.
BALOCHISTAN: The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) launched a long march from Quetta to Karachi to press the authorities for recovery of missing Baloch political workers on Sunday evening.
Chairman VBMP, Nasrullah Baloch and Mama Qadeer Baloch led the long march participants from Quetta. Besides men, women and children were also part of the march in a frustrated attempt for recovery of their loved ones.
From Social Media:
Teertej village is half an hour’s dirt track drive outside Awaran, where 95 percent houses had collapsed, 22 people died and many survivors had suffered fractures, broken arms, ribs and head injuries
The purported relief for Awaran’s quake affected people seems to be making no headway either on ground or paper as the nationalist Chief Minister Dr Malik and his mentors do not seem to be on same page. He appeals for international aid but his bosses refuse accepting aid with express purpose of punishing the people of Awaran on flimsy security grounds. They do not want to admit that it is their security at risk and not that of aid organisations. Not a single journalist or non-governmental person has been hurt. The Baloch have made it abundantly clear that they will not be accepting aid from army or the Frontier Corps (FC).
