Baloch Culture Day

Looking like a Baloch on ‘culture day’ may be expensive in terms of money but being a Baloch by conduct as per history and historical responsibility comes at a price which probably not many of us are ready to pay

‘Am I Baloch because of my Paag?
“Resistance Day or Cultural Day”

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

I am posing a question and will then try to answer it; in my answer I will express my views on something which has quite recently become a fad and fashion with zero returns either politically, culturally, socially or economically.

Does the Paag, Sadri and Chawat or Pashk and Sarri define a person or his/her Balochiyat or is it the character and deeds of that person which truly define his/her Balochiyat and love for Balochistan?

کیا میں اپنے پاگ ( پگڑٰی )کی وجہ سے بلوچ ہوں؟

‘کلچر ڈے’ کے موقع پر ایک بلوچ کی طرح دیکھنا پیسوں کے معاملے میں مہنگا پڑ سکتا ہے لیکن تاریخ اور تاریخی ذمہ داری کے مطابق طرز عمل کے مطابق ایک بلوچ ہونے کی قیمت اس قیمت پر آتی ہے جو شاید ہم میں سے بہت سے ادا کرنے کو تیار نہیں ہیں

انگلش: میر محمد علی تالپور

اردو ترجمعہ: لالا فہیم بلوچ

میں ایک سوال کھڑا کر رہا ہوں اور پھر اس کا جواب دینے کی کوشش کروں گا۔ میرے جواب میں کسی ایسی چیز پر اپنے خیالات کا اظہار کروں گا جو حال ہی میں سیاسی ، ثقافتی ، معاشرتی یا معاشی طور پر صفر کی واپسی کے ساتھ ایک فیشن اور فیشن بن گیا ہے۔

کیا پاگ ، سدری اور چاوٹ )( جوتے )یا پشک قمیض اور سری کسی شخص یا اس کے بلوچیات کی تعریف کرتے ہیں یا یہ اس شخص کا کردار اور کام ہے جو واقعی اس کی بلوچیات اور بلوچستان سے محبت کی تعریف کرتا ہے؟

BALOCHISTAN:  The Central Spokesperson of Baloch Student Organization- Azad (BSO-A) revealed in a statement that BSO-A had been registered as an organization under Federal Law governing Non-profit organizations in Canada.

کینڈا آنے کا مقصد بلوچستان میں ہونے والے جنگی جرائم، انسانی حقوق کی پامالیوں، سمیت تمام اسیران کی آواز کو مہذب دنیا تک ایک موثر انداز میں پہنچا سکوں،بانک کریمہ بلوچ

Karima Baloch

کوئٹہ (سنگر نیوز)بلوچ اسٹوڈنٹس آرگنائزیشن آزاد کے چیئرپرسن بانک کریمہ بلوچ نے ایک آن لائن نیوز ایجنسی بلوچستان ٹائمز کو انٹر ویو دیتے ہوئے کہا کہ چونکہ وہ ایک ریاست کی قبضہ گیریت کے خلاف جدوجہد کررہے ہیں، اس ریاست کی میڈیا و عدلیہ سمیت تمام ادارے ریاست کے ستون ہیں جو کہ انہی کی پروگرام و پالیسیوں کے محافظ ہیں۔

پاکستانی میڈیا بلوچ قومی تحریک کو غلط رنگ دینے کے لئے منفی پروپگنڈہ کررہی ہے تاکہ بلوچ قومی تحریک کو دیگر طاقتوں کا پراکسی ثابت کیا جا سکے۔ پاکستانی میڈیا چونکہ آزاد نہیں ہے اس لئے وہ ہمارے موقف کو پیش کیے بغیر ہمارے خلاف پروپگنڈہ کررہی ہے۔
