بلوچ اہلِ دانش کے خلاف نئی چارج شیٹ

ذوالفقار علی زلفی

پاکستان کے معروف انگریزی روزنامہ “دی نیشن” نے خفیہ اداروں کے اہلکاروں کے حوالے سے 10 اکتوبر 2016 کو ایک رپورٹ شائع کی. رپورٹ کے مطابق کالعدم بلوچ تنظیموں نے پروپیگنڈے کے لیے کراچی اور بالخصوص لیاری کو اپنا مرکز بنایا ہوا ہے. اہلکاروں کے مطابق کراچی کے بعض بلوچ اس حوالے سے سرگرم کردار ادا کر رہے ہیں. دی نیشن نے اہلکاروں کے نام ظاہر کیے ہیں، نہ ہی مذکورہ بلوچوں کے. اس لیے گمان غالب یہی ہے کہ یہ رپورٹ ان تمام بلوچوں کے لیے خطرے کی گھنٹی ہے جو میڈیا سے منسلک ہیں اور مختلف مسائل پر اپنا مؤقف پیش کررہے ہیں یا پبلشنگ وغیرہ سے وابستہ ہیں.

یہ رپورٹ کوئی اتفاقی واقعہ نہیں ہے اور نہ ہی دی نیشن کی صحافتی ذمہ داریوں کی مظہر ہے بلکہ اس کا کامریڈ واحد بلوچ کی جبری گمشدگی اور اس کے گرد ابھرنے والی تحریک سے براہِ راست تعلق ہے. خفیہ اداروں کی فرمائش پر شائع کی گئی اس رپورٹ کا وسیع تناظر میں جائزہ لینا ازحد ضروری ہے.

اِک لاش کا ارتقا

تحریر : ساجد حسین

ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

بیس سال کی عمر تھی اور لکھاری بننے کے جذبے سے سرشار میں ہر اس شخص سے ملنے کا شوقین تھا جسکا ادب سے کچھ لینا دینا ہو۔ تو میں ایک آدمی سے ملا۔ 2002ء میں۔

میرا ایک ادبی دوست مجھے لیاری میں اس آدمی کے چھوٹے سے اپارٹمنٹ میں لے گیا جہاں وہ ایک بڑے خاندان کیساتھ رہتا تھا۔ اس نے اردو کی ایک کتاب ’انسان بڑا کیسے بنا‘، بنی نوع انسان کا ارتقا، کا بلوچی زبان میں ترجمہ کیا تھا۔

The evolution of a dead body

haji-abdul-razzaq-baloch-journalits

By    

Twenty years old and brimming with the passion of becoming a writer, I was eager to meet anyone who had something to do with literature. So I met a guy.  In 2002.

A literary friend of mine took me to this guy’s small apartment in Lyari where he lived with a large family. He had translated an Urdu book, Insan bara kaise bana, The Evolution of the Mankind, into Balochi.

Special Report: The struggle Pakistan does not want reported

By Matthew Green

“There are lines you can’t cross as a journalist in Karachi,” said a Baluch reporter. “Maybe he crossed one of those lines.”

(Reuters) – Abdul Razzaq Baloch worked nights. After dinner, he would start his shift as a proofreader at the Daily Tawar, a newspaper published on a shoe-string from a cramped office in Karachi, Pakistan’s commercial capital. At 2 a.m., the 42-year-old would make the short journey home on his new Super Star motorbike.

COMMENT: Paying back in their own coin. Really? — Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

It took Razzak Baloch’s family 24 hours to identify him through old marks on limbs because his face was mutilated beyond recognition

Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurAfter the recent attack on a train near Machh, Bolan, in which only the locomotive and the railway police compartments were targeted, Railways Minister Khwaja Saad Rafique, very bravely, said, “Militants should surrender otherwise the government will pay them (militants) in their own coin… we would respond with 10 rockets in response to one fired by the militants.” The fact is that even when no rockets have been fired the security forces have fired countless rockets of wanton brutality against the Baloch who had had no option except to resist the unwarranted brutality. How many rockets had the Baloch fired in March 1948 to be forcibly annexed or in October 1958 for Kalat to be attacked or in 1973 for the elected Ataullah Mengal government to be dismissed and a terrible military operation conducted or for the present ‘dirty war’ claiming thousands of victims to be unleashed with the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti and Balaach Marri? There is an uninterrupted history of unprovoked aggression against the Baloch and it intensifies every day.
