ISLAMABAD: Expressing support for the Baloch insurgency, self-exiled Baloch leader Nawabzada Hayrbiya Marri urged the international community to pressure Pakistan to allow international humanitarian organisations direct access to Balochistan’s earthquake-affected areas.
Dr Allah Nazar is Balochistan’s most popular middle-class nationalist leader. Belonging from a modest family in Balochistan’s town of Mashkay, he started his political career from Baloch Students Organization (BSO). He founded his own faction of BSO in February 2002 that openly advocated an armed struggle for liberating Balochistan. In 2003, he went underground to organize his own militant group. His Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) made headlines when it claimed responsibility for killing three Chinese engineers in Gwadar on May 2, 2004.
London: Baloch patriot leader Hyrbyair Marri said on Saturday that no one will be allowed to exploit Baloch coastal resources, the international community including China should respect the collective decision of Baloch nation. “The world should not make any agreement with Pakistan without the consent of Baloch nation,” Mr Marri added.
Expressing his concerns and disappointment over Pakistan’s handing over of Gwadar port to China, the Baloch leader said the entire world is witnessing that Baloch are sacrificing enormously in their struggle for their survival and Pakistan is committing atrocities to deny the Baloch their basic right to liberty because of which whole of Balochistan has become war effected area.
