BALOCHISTAN: Baloch leader Dr Manan Baloch was murdered in a military operation early Saturday (30 January 2016) morning.
His four other companions were also killed when military attacked the house where they were staying in Balochistan’s Mastung area.
Dr Manan was the General Secretary of the Baloch National Movement (BNM), a political party seeking independence from Pakistan. Although the BNM claims its struggle is peaceful, the Pakistan military has killed dozens of its leaders and activists, including its founding president Ghulam Mohammed Baloch, due to their demand for an independent Balochistan.
Occupied Balochistan:Baloch Republican Party announces three days of mourning and calls for a complete shutter-down strike all over Balochistan against the brutal target killing of its political activists by Pakistani death squads in Khuzdar, Balochistan. The occupying state continues its genocidal policies in Balochistan. The state forces face terrible defeat by the Baloch freedom fighters and Baloch national struggle for freedom and now the state forces have lost their nerves and they are indiscriminately targeting the common innocent Balochs and political activists.
