There is no gain for the Baloch to take part in Pakistan’s elections: Nawab Marri

Karachi: Veteran Baloch independence leader Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri said that Pakistan’s existence on world map is possible due to American support. If America stops funding Pakistan, it will disappear from world map within one week. Now it depends on America whether it wants to keep Pakistan alive for one year or one hundred years.

The Baloch people instead of being spokespersons of their tribal entities should become a Nation – ‘Baloch Nation’. Getting rid of Pakistan’s slavery has become the destiny of Baloch nation as the world map is changing rapidly. We cannot tell exactly when the Baloch will get rid of Pakistan’s slavery but we can surely say that Balochistan will be get independence in this century.

An Agent Provocateur or a Baloch McCarthy in the Making:

BHRC (Canada) Responds to Accusations by Ahmer Mustikhan

Toronto, Jan.-12-12 – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) has expressed concern over the string of emails received by BHRC office bearers in Toronto and Vancouver from Ahmer Mustikhan, a self-proclaimed journalist and resident of Washington, DC. The disturbing contents of the emails stated baseless accusations and threats to Aziz Baloch, Vice President, BHRC (Canada) and co-ordinator, International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons. In his emails, Mustikhan, founder of American Friends of Balochistan, accused Aziz Baloch of supporting a murder that took place in Balochistan (southwest province of Pakistan). Furthermore, in his emails, Mustikhan threatened Aziz Baloch that he would report him to the Canadian authorities, police, and RCMP for his alleged support to terrorism and murdering of civilians, namely Imtiaz Ahmed of Balochistan National Party by Baloch militants in late December 2010. This document is a case presentation of Mustikhan’s history of yellow journalism, blackmail, extortion, harassment, and intimidation of Baloch political personalities and activists. He calls his writings ‘guerrilla journalism’ and believes that he can get whatever he wants from his victims by intimidating them of dire consequences if the demands were not met.
