The Khan of Kalat no longer enjoys the influence that his elders did so his return will not change the insurgency situation in Balochistan.
The News on Sunday: What do you make of the government claims that hundreds of Baloch insurgents have surrendered arms on August 14? There were conflicting reports about the killing of Dr Allah Nazar Baloch. What is the state of insurgency like in Balochistan today?
Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur: The government has always claimed that there are only a handful of misguided Baloch who resist progress at the behest of foreign hands. But since June, going by press reports, those surrendering number at least 800 so then why are the attacks still going on? The latest charade was on August 17, claiming that right hand men of Brahamdagh along with 23 others surrendered. These are ‘rent a crowd surrenders’, quite pointless.

وہ لوگ جو اس غلیظ پیسے کو قبول کریں گے یقینا یہ وہ لوگ نہیں ہیں جنہیں بلوچستان سے کوئی محبت ہے اور بیشک انہیں پاکستان سے بھی کوئی محبت نہیں ہوگی؛ ان کی وفاداری پیسے سے ہے
حال ہی میں، بلوچستان حکومت نے ان بلوچوں کو، جو اپنے حقوق کیلئے جدوجہد کر رہے ہیں، اپنے مادر وطن کے مقدس مقصد کو ترک کرنے کیلئے عام معافی کی پیشکش کی ہے۔ اس نے مجھے مشہور زمانہ بیٹل کےمدتوں قبل مشہور گانے کی یاد دلا دی، ”مجھے محبت خرید کر نہیں دے سکتے“، کیونکہ پیسہ محبت اور وفاداری نہیں خرید سکتے۔ اسکے اشعار کچھ یوں ہیں:
” مجھے محبت خرید کر نہیں دے سکتے، میری جان
مجھے محبت خرید کر نہیں دے سکتے
اے میرے دوست میں تمہارے لئے ہیرے کی ایک انگوٹھی خریدوں گا اگر اس سے تم اچھا محسوس کرو
اے میرے دوست میں تمہیں ہر چیز لاکر دونگا اگر اس سے تم اچھا محسوس کرو
کیونکہ مجھے پیسے کی زیادہ پرواہ نہیں ہے، اور پیسہ مجھے محبت خرید کر نہیں دے سکتا
Those who will accept this dirty money are surely not those who have any love for Balochistan and assuredly they will not have it for Pakistan either; their loyalty is to money
Recently, the Balochistan government offered the Baloch who are struggling for their rights to give up the sacred cause of their motherland for amnesty. It reminded me of the famous Beatle hit song of yore, “Can’t Buy Me Love”, because money cannot buy love and loyalty. The lyrics are:
Can’t Buy Me Love
Can’t buy me love, love
Can’t buy me love
I’ll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright
I’ll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright
Cos I don’t care too much for money, and money can’t buy me love
Suleman Dawood has not given a single glass of water to any Baloch but invited General Pervez Musharraf at his palace and gave him a sword as a gift which was symbolic of arming Musharraf against Baloch and agreeing to Baloch genocide
BALOCHISTAN: Baloch nationalist leader Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch in statement said that Suleman Dawood in his October 10, 2014 statement shows his mental decline and lack of understanding where he tried to give a negative impression by mentioning about my meeting with Akhtar Mengal.
If, as a Baloch, I meet with Akhtar Mengal then there is nothing wrong about it, but I have not met with him. As a political worker everyone is respectable for me.
Toronto, June 1st – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) condemned the killing and abduction of Mir Suleiman Daud’s relatives by the Frontier Corps (FC) during a search operation on Sariab Road in Quetta. According to media sources and reports from Quetta, residence of Agha Mehrab Khan and his younger brother Agha Najib Ahmadzai, 19, came under attack by FC soldiers. During the pre-dawn raid on Friday, soldiers opened fire and killed Agha Mehrab Khan and took away his brother Agha Najib Ahmadzai to an undisclosed location.
BALOCHISTAN: In a pre-dawn raid on Friday, Frontier Corps personnel killed a cousin of self-exiled Baloch leader Khan of Kalat and whisked away another of his cousin.
According to family members, some two dozen FC personnel conducted a search operation of all houses belonging close relatives of Baloch nationalist Khan of Kalat Mir Suleman Daud.
Initially there was no connection between Baluchistan and the phenomenon of Pakistan except one. This connection, as it happened, became one of the most disastrous and destructive calamity known to Baluch history. Baluch approached an Indian (Gujarati) lawyer Jinnah Poonja, later named as Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and then employed him as a legal advisor to Khan of Kalat. The main reason for employing a lawyer, however, was to pursue their deepest desire to regain their independence from Britain. To this end, they needed a professional legal adviser. Jinnah accepted the offer and acted as mouthpiece of the established order. His stance at this time was fundamentally at odd with the notion of Pakistan. In all probability, the thought of Pakistan had never crossed his mind or if it did he met it with a good deal of incredulity and disbelief. He was for peaceful coexistence of Hindus and Muslims under British rule.
