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
By Sajid Hussain
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.

“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.
It took Razzak Baloch’s family 24 hours to identify him through old marks on limbs because his face was mutilated beyond recognition
After 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.
Strike was observed against the forced disappearances, offensive of forces and extra judiciary murder of Haji Abdul Razzaq Baloch and other Baloch activists.
BALOCHISTAN: A complete shutter-down and wheel jammed strike on Saturday was observed in different parts of Balochistan on the call of the Baloch National Front (BNF) against the forced disappearances , offensive of forces and extra judiciary murder of Haji Abdul Razzaq Baloch and other Baloch activists .
The mutilated body of Balochistan-based journalist Haji Abdul Razzak was identified by his family today, one day after it was found in Karachi, Pakistan’s business capital. Missing since 24 March, Razzak was tortured to death.
“We urge the Pakistani authorities to fully investigate Razzak’s disappearance and barbaric murder in order to establish the motive and determine whether it was linked to his work as a journalist,” Reporters Without Borders said.
Here’s the handwritten slip found near journalist Abdul Razzaq’s body with his name on it.
“Haji Abdul Razzaq Baloch’s disappearance and death is another grim reminder of the precarious conditions Baluch journalists face in Pakistan.” – said CPJ’s Asia program coordinator, Bob Dietz.
New York, August 22, 2013– Authorities in Pakistan should immediately investigate the murder of a Baluch journalist whose body was found in Karachi on Wednesday, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today. Haji Abdul Razzaq Baloch had been missing since March, according to news reports.
Razzaq’s face was mutilated, and his body showed signs of strangulation and torture, according to Agence France-Presse. Razzaq’s family initially denied that the body was that of the journalist, but then later confirmed his identity, reports said.
