CM Dr Malik has Value?
On 24 September 2013, a powerful earthquake hit Balochistan’s area Awaran. Earthquake brought large scale of destruction. Where in some areas all houses were flatted due to mud-built premised as perspective of area climate.
Awaran is a remote area of Balochistan, it is situated very far from capital Quetta. This area is undeveloped and people who have visited narrated some gloomy story about Awaran. Due to the deprivations a resisting movement roused in Balochistan and it is enough established in Awaran, specifically.
CM Balochistan Dr Malik accompanied with escort of forces visited affected areas to estimate the destruction scale. In that area Dr Malik’s covey was attacked by armed group, too. At that time Dr Malik himself said destruction rang is very wide and they are not able to meet on their behalf, they need international assistance and aid for relief works and rehabilitation of effected people of Awaran. In this regard Chief Minister also took some initiatives, too and spoke in media for seeking international assistance in the pattern of earthquake in Kashmir, flood in Sindh, Punjab and earthquake in Balochistan’s part Ziarat.
Establishment and federal government are concealing some political facts from world, due to backwardness in area and deprivation caused turbulence withstanding the existence of a movement, resultantly insurgents are attacking on forces and they have fully support of masses shown in reports presented by international media organizations which don’t care of establishes anguish or don’t come under control of them because of international laws.
The situations and hushing-up to political facts have halted the way of international donors organization to Awaran, even an organization of doctors “doctor without borders” France based wasn’t let to provide medical services in earthquake-hit areas. The Awaran’s common people are paying price of political conflictions in shape of medical relief denial after massive earthquake which brought large scale of causalities.
Dr Malik Baloch prior to Eid talking with BBC-Urdu’s correspondent at Quetta told that his government has written to center for permission to invite international organizations for working in earthquake hit areas of Awaran. When media-persons ask for late writing, so he mentioned several reasons and he said it is not fault of central government but they have delayed enough and after Eid will get response in favor. Even span of months Chief Minister Dr Malik Baloch couldn’t get permission.
On 8th November, 2013, after 40 days Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr Nawaz Sharif memorized this disastrous areas and victims. During visit he read a written peace given by establishment while trampling all ground realities, Mr Nawaz Sharif restated forces allegation that they manage all themselves in Awaran and don’t let international organizations to operate in area.
Chief Minister Balochistan Dr Malik Baloch’s assessments about Awaran devastation of earthquake were wrong or his writing to center for permission to call international organizations for carrying-out relief work and rehabilitation of victim wasn’t needed. Otherwise, final reason is that Dr Malik Baloch is Chief Minister of Balochistan, but he has no authority and value in front of central government and establishment, because being consented and wrote to center, but he has failed to bring international organizations in his province for humane and non-militarized works.
We have failed to recover Missing Persons: Dr. Malik Baloch
After 11 May, 2013, elections the National Party won ten seats of provincial assembly. Before from elections, it seemed that National Party in coming government will brace a considerable stake. It is possible said party had confidence in its strength or hidden hands had pact with them. The head of party Dr Malik Baloch before taking oath of cheifministership stated that he will not be able to ride on such horse which bridles to be in hands of someone else. Means he wasn’t consented to be powerless Chief Minister of provinces.
Balochistan is engulfed in chaos, here a war of separation is being fought, therefore, Pakistan Muslim League-N even holding majority didn’t take high post of province and other nationalist parties, like Pashtoon Khuwa Mili Awami Party (PMAP) also backed-off from CM seat. They knew in present situations this position is as a thorny-bed, but Dr Malik Baloch enthusiastically was roaming between Islamabad and Quetta for the discussed post. He was agreed to accept all term and condition for it. It seemed that those National Party leaders were hysterically running behind the chair of CM. Here learnt of Politics were aware of reality the assemblies and knew sitting in there people are powerless and aren’t genuine representative of masses, too. And the longstanding issue of Missing Persons isn’t in their domain to solve it.
The vice chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) Mama Qadeer addressing to a press conference told during present government the abduction of Baloch’s increased and now simultaneously dozens are being picked, whilst in previous governments the abduction number was below than double during single incident. Missing Balochs are being killed in fake encounters pitilessly, prior to this their bullet riddle dead bodies are being dumped throughout Balochistan but now its range has been extended till Karachi.
Mama Qadeer blamed that the court is giving fly to Missing Persons case and voiding to give any decision against authorities. He declined that no one has been released or brought on surface by Dr Malik the current provincial government, who is claiming for stoppage of throwing mutilated bodies and abduction series. He said that the relatives of Missing Persons are pessimist about present NP government.
The organization Voice for Baloch Missing Persons has kicked-off a Long March from Quetta to Karachi. The female are also participating in it. The march means to raise a voice for Baloch Missing Persons safe release and extract the attention of international organizations.
Dr Malik Baloch at Karachi Press club “launching a press conference” has admitted that they have failed to recover the Missing Persons of Balochistan. By this he has affirmed himself that he is riding on such horse which bridles are not in his hands. He only affirmed his helplessness about Missing Persons but in fact he doesn’t have authority in any department of province. It is possible, he is earning individually and mandate of Baloch he doesn’t have, and a tongue to be rolled in front of the authorities. He is powerless in front of institutes that’s why he said, “We have failed in recovery of Baloch Missing Persons”. The disgruntle of relatives of Baloch Missing Persons and their long march are solid proof of this.
International Day for Missing Persons and Media Role
Human civilization journey is stretching on thousands years. Human developed states, societies and international organizations, like United Nation to prevent war and provide prosperity, equality and just preserving lives.
For diminishing the human problems, globally international organizations assigned various days to different chapters. The civil society, especially media uplifts to problems and attracts world attentions for cogitation and resolve of conundrums.
30th August has been allocated for Enforced Disappearing Persons and in Balochistan the strength of Missing Persons is higher than other parts of country. The persons who have gone to missing are Baloch Political workers and relatives of these missing blame on state agencies and security forces for this grim offend.
On 30th August an organization Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) conducted a protest in front of Quetta Press Club to lift voice for their endears safe release. The mentioned organization established a token hunger strike camp in front of Quetta press club before 3 years, but it is stunning that aggrieved people are crying for more than three years, they have faced worst level of apathy for being Baloch, whatsoever they are, minimum they are human.
The organization voice for Baloch Missing Persons informed during month of June 27, July 46 and August 35 Persons were abducted. These are the figures of that’s period when the new government of Dr Malik Baloch in province Balochistan and in center Mr Nawaz Sharif sworn. During this period of three months, 48 mutilated bodies of Baloch missing persons have been received and 36 such decomposed bodies also have been found which couldn’t be identified.
The discussed organization Voice for Baloch Missing Person was constituted by relative of Baloch political workers who had gone to missing. This organization owns complete data of 3000 missing Balochs. And this was informed that from inception of Organization to date, they have data of 1500 mutilated bodies which were dumped of Baloch, who first were abducted, the organization claimed that more than 18000 Baloch are abducted, but they lack resources to approach remote areas of wide stretched of Balochistan.
It is horrific that thousands people are missing and disjoint from their families and similarly thousands people have been slain but here’s human rights organizations and media totally neglected this catastrophe. It has been observed that media reports unnecessary and valueless things to divert the attention of masses or don’t let them to know the truth and reality. When an iota incident or rumor occurs on floor of assemblies or with ministers, so for hours magnificently broadcasts and telecasts for hours needlessly, it is against the ethics of Journalism and media institutes’ essence. They are ignoring humans who are suffering from pain and facing worst type of unjust but media is engaged in straying to masses.
Anchor persons of news channels elaborate all changing aspects of politics and state affairs but an important issue is overwhelmed skillfully that worldly the International Missing Persons day was observed but here this day was skipped in media.
During a proceeding of court, honorable judge remarked that they don’t want to handcuff someone about missing persons, and gave more time to security authorities to produce missing Baloch political workers. Here it is astonishing that thousands are missing and thousands brutally killed, their mutilated bodies have been thrown and series is ongoing unabated but authorities even reluctant to handcuff someone and media also is ignoring such shocking events, and on international Missing Persons day has given disproportionate converges to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons protest which is crime against humanity. This attitude of Media proved this field like a lucrative business but not human serving, knowledge delivering and justice providing course. Especially, in Balochistan, media turned blind about Baloch issue and Missing person calamity.
The imitation of previous government
After election 2013, the new government came in being in center and provinces. Central government as its precedent PP regime is speaking same that will cure the wounds of Baloch while remaining in Pakistani constitution. The provincial leaders also its precedent Raisani government announced formation of committee for negotiation with Baloch insurgents. The present government Chief Minister extended some words that they will negotiate with Baloch insurgents including religious elements who are waging a sectarian war.
Spontaneously, question rises in mind that how Dr Malik tranquil religious elements while this sectariann war is expanding globally? The sectarian clashes are happening in Khyber Pakthoon Khuwa, FATA and internationally Labnon, Iraq, Syria and other several countries have plunged in this quandry. The incidents in Balochistan taking Place are connected with international organizations and have resemblance of dogma, too. Has Dr Malik Baloch capability to convince both rival dogmas followers, never he hasn’t but in media mundunely he can speak. Ok let him wind-baggery.
Dr Malik is engaged in advocacy of such state that it has ignited the fire of sectarian and ever gained aid by name of Jahadis. On base of religion countered internal and external foes. Indeed, it is a significant tool for this state of that Dr Malik Bloch is Minister, as well as the said state foundation was laid on religion, mean two nations theory, whether it is viable or not. Mr Baloch is well aware of this but in here’s politics all is right by that reach to power chair.
The pervious Raisani Government came in power, so Mr Aslam Raisani prior to taking oath of CM of Balochistan said that he will resolve Baloch issue within three years in case failure would resign but couldn’t fulfill his promise and till last day he was bond with Chair of CM ship of Balochistan.
The present rulers are also imitating their precedent politicians. Mr Abdul Malik while getting seat of Chief Minister proclaimed will resolve Baloch issue but he should explain that how he can resolve while Separatist Leaders put agenda of freedom for negotiation. If it be cogitated that their organizations or struggle basic essence is separation from this state and system but Dr Malik Baloch is a sub-ordinate of state and was brought on this stage with term that will be a helping tool of state machinery in any condition against pay of wealth and incentives. He totally lacks the aptitude to come up the level of those people who are striving for deliverance.
Dr Abdul Malik Baloch should asses his height that he couldn’t bring any single person of Baloch Missings on surface, and do not talk of release of any one. A Baloch nationalist party claimed during Mr Malik regime approximately 85 mutilated bodies of Baloch youth found and more than 200 parsons are abducted while Mr Baloch is claiming for abate in series of abducting and throwing of mutilated bodies of Baloch political workers. The federal government constituted a task-force, like People’s Party government had established a Judicial Commission for inquiry of Baloch Missing Persons. The performance of Judicial Commission isn’t needed to be narrated, because all knows that how many people it had brought on surface or released who reached to their homes.
The proclaimed task-force performance can be speculated from its formation and included peoples that no one is indicted from Balochistan and relatives of Missing Persons, even any human rights defender isn’t including in it, so how this discussed task-force will trace-out Missing Persons, it is a palpating question to minds of each Baloch, possible also clicking the mind of Dr Malik Baloch because when he was not minister, so was stating, “If million people protest in Islamabad, resultantly will not be response, indeed rulers are deaf and blind”. Now he himself is constituting committee for tackling Missing Persons issue, possible time has changed its color or Dr Malik Baloch?
It seems here that this government also devoid quality to negotiate with Baloch insurgents, but like its precedent People’s Party will fill all time in claims of formation institutes, committees for negotiation or task-force and invitations, and on other hand will continue use of power to crush Baloch insurgency. Here one thing is enunciated that passed government with full-swing persecuted on Baloch but couldn’t wipe out this movement, so how these can!
PPP run-away due to defeat’s fear from Presidential Election!
On 30th July, 2013, presidential election held in electoral bodies countrywide for 12th president, in history of Pakistan. Mr Mamoon Hussian the candidate of Pakistan Muslim League-N had won as landslide whilst the candidate of Pakistan Tehrik Insaf obtained second position in election.
The second largest party, Pakistan People’s Party boycotted the election. It is obvious on all that PPP couldn’t win the position, consequently had decided to boycott the election though it wasn’t a democratic attitude. The proficient of politics are well aware of this that PPP was not competent to accomplish five years tenure of parliament but it was allowed deliberately by PML-N and other parties to earn much defame for itself. The boycott decision aptness is the worst defeat in election which has stamped this logic authentication.
The co-chairperson of PPP Mr Zardari at the end of his rule said that he and his party had granted much to Baloch but those are Balochs who are not capable to come-up. Yes! Mr Zazdari gestured truth, during PPP regime Baloch received mutilated bodies, the number is above than thousand, and Baloch sons have gone to missing who were abducted and their whereabouts are not known by relatives. Massive operations were carried-out on powerless Baloch throughout Balochistan, and during those ripped fields were set blazed into ashes, livestock were loaded in truck to sell in markets or slaughtered as edible of government officials, the valuables and cash-savings were robbed.
The president of state and co-chairperson of PPP had zipped his lips to speak a single word about the atrocities in Balochistan. His party as being champion of democracy never resisted against these inhuman acts but remain busy to mint amount for their coming days and up-coming generations. They knew, this is the time to loot mercilessly the masses and buy properties abroad. Ever Bhuttos and now their son-in-law Zardari also gave gift of operations and atrocities to Balochs.
PPP couldn’t appear a large party in general election 2013, because of its transgression and corrupt leadership. Prior to election, the PPP leaders were claiming they have halted the way of those who had have support of agencies. The election 2013 were processed under supervision of PPP government, mean Mr Zardari was head of state, the president of Pakistan, hence any stipulation about election’s result is totally improper.
The PPP was given government last time not for its aptitude but for tranquil to Sindhis, because the Benazir’s murder had paved situations to revolt, as in Balochistan it is underway. PPP spent its days of ruling as honeymoon but did nothing for masses.
Now in presidential election, PPP defeat was certain, so this champion of democracy has stepped undemocratic of boycott electoral bodies elections while putting irrational objection that voting was to be conducted on 6th August instead of 30th July, 2013. Mr Raza Rabbani the presidential candidate of PPP said that in this short-time cannot go to provinces for canvass, but answer this that how other parties have done discussed task in that spell. Mr Rabbani bother to reply that during five years why not canvassed?
Five years, the worst performance has caused defeat of PPP and because of defeat fear it run-away from ring to combat.
Bogus election in Balochistan
On 11th May 2013, vociferation polling in Balochistan held. Prior to the polling, a gigantic wave of violence witnessed in Balochistan to halt process by secessionists. Capital Quetta was shuddering and jolting with blasts and rocket fires. Security was beefed-up sufficiently; even volatile activities were on its peak. A panic easily could be read at countenances of Balochistan’s citizens and no sensible person can deny from this. Quetta is metropolitan of Balochistan, where state department’s headquarters including security agencies main offices are located. But polling ratio in Baloch predominated areas was very low and other part of city were also impacted awfully.
Other areas, like Awaran, (where election could not be conducted) Panjgoor remained as same the Awaran, even entire Mekuran division stayed shutdown before four days of voting with capital Quetta, which was observed by media-men and observers. In media, the footage broadcast, and published in print media about strike which was called by Baloch National Front.
The assigned staff for election had boycotted to perform duties after receiving life threats from armed resisting organizations. First, All Government Teachers Association denied for dispensing the electoral responsibilities and Balochistan Lecturer Association imitating GTA also defiance in front of government on base of life threats. In this situation, election commission hadn’t staff or was deficient to manage voting assignment.
The vulnerable situations of Balochistan can be guessed by this that security agencies admitted that via land they cannot supply voting material mean ballot box, ballot paper and other accessories. For accomplishment of said task required assistance of aviation. Security forces are unable to move in Balochistan fearlessly, so how common people or other official could dispense government obligations?
The parliamentarian parties were attacked and no party could elude from attacks of secessionist groups. In fact, the masses were also languor with all parliamentarians because of their deceitful role. And a great distinction obviously can be observed between act and saying of these parties. Masses have wearied and were disinclined to vote for anyone among all those parties.
The all mentioned solid realities indicates that voting couldn’t be held fairly in Balochistan but merely for hoodwink by help of media on fewer polling stations the very low number of people were shown voting which never stand for population of Balochistan. The politicians nominated as winner or succeeded are selective to serve a layer sycophantic way the trampling masses will, demands and rights.
The results have been compiled insane way that the parties which don’t have voter in some constituencies but ironically have been declared winner. A religious party ever conducts huge public meetings was flatten overnight. Another so called nationalist party ridiculously is made victorious on such constituencies where pashtoon population is dwelling in very small number, but seat has been thrown in calabash of discussed party.
It is amazed that provincial caretaker chief minister Mohd Khan Barozai in media categorically gestured that they were anticipated for transparent election, but swindlers have swindled them, and it was rigged in election. The most responsible personality of province and government representing authority remarked as about election, so how worth this process was?
The world can never be cheated straightforwardly by name of polling or election process to bring mercenaries and stooges to get its aim. A sensible person knows very well this gauche result and atmosphere of Balochistan was repugnant for voting. This election was bogus and nothing else, and world knows better here’s election reality and rejected politicians, too now they will work by given direction, but this election also let those to know who were against this process. Sure, election preventers got invigorated by failed and bogus voting practice which is written on wall can be read everyone.
And now turn of progressive and middle class!
Due to the defective policies the state of Pakistan could not get a vibrant country. People are just herded through baton of religion, enmity with India and other fabricated slogans which benefited or assisted establishment to serene people on being low level. But these all manipulating tricks had been effective for a small period and then lost value and in consequence resentment among people has up-surged.
Among resentments in Pakistan, one is uplift of Baloch insurgency. As usual establishment according to its nature neglected its seriousness but intoxicated by power have onslaught on Baloch population and killed numerous youth belonging to all sphere of life. These incursions of establishment gave birth to a movement, though the ember of succession already was hibernated in Baloch.
For elimination of Baloch insurgency, the establishment never showed seriousness even now has not brought any change in its thoughts but direct or indirect way using power for achievement in her plot. She is never agreeing to meet demand of secessionist because it is not viable for her, and roused insurgency also has an objective. If Baloch insurgents relinquish that objective then their entity would be purposeless, resultantly they would be devalued. Like some vague program holder parties were rejected.
In past, the tribal elements were used to eliminate Baloch insurgency but user of tribal dice has known that these so called figures have lost their significance in 21st century and Baloch masses are not ready to comply with these stooges. Now double characteristic parties have been carved, which have tribal elements and progressive, too and they irrationally and unnaturally have made alliance. Most progressives or former BSO unscrupulous workers are going to be used against Baloch Movement.
In this regard, these Baloch insurgents have program or mechanism to combat such circumstances. It is enunciated that they before launching their movement expected about this aspect, too. They are enough sane. The newly established government of province and center will be like its precedents. The power holder must realize the ground realities and consider these rebellion people as human and deal them by set of human laws. The use of so called progressive or middle class will not be inept, unless the authorities recognize the stance of Baloch insurgents.
Earthquake and election campaign
The earthquake devastation has shocked Washuk district of Balochsitan but no proper attention of government authorities, National and International organizations including political parties has caused turne of natural calamity in to human made disaster.
On 16th April 2013 a tremor of earthquake hit Baluchistan’s North West area, adjacent to Iranian border Maskhel. The Seismological department of Washington has recorded the tremor intensity 6.8 on Richter scale, which was a much powerful shock after historical quakes since 1900’s, the 1935’s destructive shock that had jolted entire city of Quetta. The earthquake of 1935 was so devastating that razed the city of Quetta, which was known as “little Paris”. The eye witness and area people narrated that the jolts had caused fall of the houses and infrastructure in minutes, the town’s premises and houses converted into flat earth in seconds and everywhere could be seen dunes and ruble was spread.
The area is remote and situated on such point that there’s infrastructure is ruptured, consequently through ground access is enough tough. In Balochistan due to vulnerable situations life is disturbed worst. Government official are unable to perform duties in capital Quetta; district Mashkel near Kharan is far-flung area. The provincial interim government is busy in management of polling and ignored human values to provide relief to its citizens who are suffering from nature’s calamity. This state machinery has failed to perform as its basic essence the humans catering about Mashkel.
The parties who claim for serving people are also obliged to care their terrain, but in election season they do not pay attentions to anyone except vote campaign. Even these parties do not have time to release a press note about victims of Mashkel, even though these parties are nationalist and pro-Baloch. In election campaign these are steeped and unable to know about disastrous Baloch area of Maskhel. It seems that victim of Mashkel have to wait till access to assemblies of Baloch nationalist parties, and then they may turn their faces toward them and pay an attractive consideration towards them and till that they be victimized more. Presently, discussed parties cannot see, so these parties have lost basic essence mean to sooth troubled people for what organizations were erected.
Religious groups and parties have faith to cater and serve God creators, especially in hard time but religious group do not do this, merely shoot in air and in election season at all they do not pay heed toward such matters only looking, even bobbing under the tree of election to catch ripped fruit in shape of assemblies’ seats. After election they may think about God creators’ service and possibly pay attentions to Mashkel’s earthquake victims, too.
NGOs are also busy or helpless to carryout relief work in Mushkel. They may lack funds, because they only run on donation and presently there is not any option of donation, so how they can provide relief to the people have affected. It is out of sense that they spend its deposited amount for people. Mashekl tremor exposed NGOs reality, too.
In Balochistan for more than ten years separatist movements have emerged with a slogan to provide deliverance from cruel system, failed political parties and hollowed state structure. If these nationalists claim for being representative of Baloch, consequently they must come forth and serve the victimized people on their level best, otherwise the ruling ball may be caught by the claws of hatred feelings. Up to now their performance about disastrous area and people is zero. By serving and providing relief to their people can win compassion and support for movement and prove themselves as true lover of humanism.
Government, nationalist parties, religious parties and groups including Non-Government Organizations have closed their eyes towards the victims of Mashkhel. They are senseless about Baloch people and are busy in preparing for the general election, merely in pursuance of luxurious life, accumulation of wealth and individual’s benefits or greed.
In the beginning of this year, when American election for presidency was at doorsill and campaign was on peak an unexpected natural disaster tornado hit the modern state however, Mr. Obama abandon all his activities and steeped in relief work. His campaign was deferred for citizen rehabilitation and relief works. They prove them true politician and have faith in human service and confirm it by upholding on top this mission. After rehabilitation efforts president came to an end, American politicians including president Obama re-launched his election works. This modal is enough for the politicians of Baluchistan and organizations for opening their eyes about humanism and real spirit of politics and missionary works which all revolve with axis of humanity.
Now secessionist groups must not turn their faces from this alarming situation of Mashkhel’s people and do not lose trustworthiness among the Baloch people. This way they can win heart and minds of their community.
The International day for Freedom of Press
The journalism profession teaches research, deep observation and read society all fields and presents the facts with magnification and simplicity for surrounding people to apprehend the situation. Journalists by practice, experience and profound sense of analyze the situations caution for readiness to poeple for up-coming circumstance.
A region called Balochistan where this profession practitioner, are being halted to well-dispense their duties. It is sure the path of nature can’t be diverted but mindless people are conspiring to do so by trampling the truth and realities. Axiomatically, they are committing silliness because knowledge never can be halted, light can’t be stopped to shed the darkness, fragrance cannot be prevented to spread and sniff, but in Balochistan, the futile efforts are being made by awkward.
The aforementioned natural occurrence never can be stopped; the elements intoxicated in power are creating trouble in way of press in Balochistan. In this regard, during the previous five years about 33 Journalists have been pushed into death-valley. But question rises for mischeif, they have perpetrated and eliminated sagacious and knowledge loving people, so have they touched their aspirations? Answer is no, and they cannot. The martyred journalists of Balochistan deserve red-salute whether they killed by any side group. They paid scarifies for their profession. They kept illuminated kindle of knowledge by their blood. The successors are keeping enlighten the kindle with courage.
The international world and worldwide journalist organizations must heed toward Balochistan’s journalists who are at life risk for the sake of press freedom. They must come forth for protection and resolve of other difficulties of here’s journalists, they press to state authorities for providing life including financial security to discussed community. Journalists in Balochistan, especially in Baloch areas are working in consternation and must be provided helpful environment and ensure freedom of press in this region. Otherwise freedom of press will be only dream and not real in this corner of glob.
Akhter Mengal: between Six Points & Power-Chair…!
Power game is not easy task, it is very hard to understand, its zigzag roots. Unfortunately, sometimes people think that they know well circle of power game but they are wrong and leading themselves at wrong path.
Balochistan is not only burning and even also bleeding. Now it is no more mystery, what does Balochistan want? Bitter Truth has come out from volcano of injustice, whether you accept or not, but this is reality that Balochistan has another demands for its own way to their destiny. None can count it in the percentage, because the whole hearts of Balochistan have now changed and it has no more faith, including in Judiciary system.
When anyone faces injustice in his/her own country, they would get hope in their institutes that they may get justice by its decisions, meanwhile Balochistan has neither been getting single line of justice, nor supportive voice which can give them hope that here and there are the eyes that are looking for our justice.
Balochistan is being treated very crucially, instead people need to understand its pain and injured voice; some people start to singing songs of foreigner hands involvement in Balochistan which are making troubles. Even though such type of lyrics have become Jokes, nothing else. Everybody understands, what is happening in Balochistan? Thanks to the world after long time that has turned its face to the Balochistan and now have started to hear voice of Balochistan.
Missing persons’ case is having high attention from Human Rights organization of the world. Though Ex-Dictator Musharraf was claiming, no one is abducted and all is well in Balochistan, later fragile democratic government of PPP and its baby partners came over with power but they were unable to handle Balochistan’s situation.
Baloch Families of Missing Persons never stop to raising-up voice for their missing persons and government surrendered and accepted the visit of UN WGIED group, moreover Former Foreign Minister Hina Ribbani did brief situation of Balochistan and group visited Balochistan, too.
Suddenly one of the voices upped in Balochistan and brought vegetables of six points for solution of Balochistan, it was very strange for Baloch people that why this voice has been remembered now when UN team was listening missing person’s stories and had no more faith in judiciary. That voice was Akhter Mengal’s, whose whole politics seems to be confused politics.
What he actually wants? He himself doesn’t understand that where he should stand? When he should have met with UN Team at that time but he put forward his feet towards Islamabad and gave six points, not only this Mr. Akhter Mengal was in confidence that his six points would work like magical stick on Balochistan and then Balochistan be turned into heaven.
Balochistan is not story of fairy-tales, where childish stories could pacify Baloch people. Akhter Mengal could not oppose Ex-Dictator Musharraf and where trying to throw stones at fragile government, it meant he wanted to play a part of opposition party in Balochistan.
If he is very serious towards problems of Balochistan, he must expose real culprits whose hands are involved in bleeding of Baloch people.
So far, Akhter Mengal was beating drum of six points, those haven’t heard positive response from judiciary. And now Mr. Mengal is stepping in Election – 2013, even though Balochistan is bleeding and his Six Points are alone at the road of judiciary.
First Baloch people wanted to know about his Six Points result? Does he still have faith in solving the problem of Balochistan under the umbrella of fragile government setup? Moreover, if by chance he enters into government, will he release missing persons?
These are few questions; Baloch people are thinking and looking for answers. Mr. Akhter Mengal has right to choose any path, first he should be known that what Baloch people feel and think? Under such circumstances, Free and Fair Election is itself big task and Balochistan is not in mood to step in Elections.
State needs to search solution of Balochistan, then can start to talk on Elections. No Baloch is ready for election but Mr. Akhter Mengal wants to hoist-up the flag of Election.
Let’s see what comes next? While picture has been cleared, Mr. Akhter Mengal’s six points have neither discussed on state-table, nor received a token of sympathy.
Once again, he is coming-up with a point of election, will it get result? Because now point of election is in the court of Baloch people, so it is to see that what and how Baloch people will react? When anger movements are in mountains and which are rejecting any step of state and no remain faith in parliamentarian system.
It is history of our country that when people do not want to give their vote, then hidden hands as known “Farishtaas” come-up and cast votes; will it happen same in Balochistan?
Leading question is, is tea-bag of vote is in the cup of election? If Mr. Akhter Mengal sits in the chair of power, he has to solve problems of Balochistan and it is not easy task but he himself has chosen parliamentarian-path, problems are getting more long-winded. Meanwhile, his six points didn’t work like magical stick, at this time his one point of election would work as like magical stick?
Baloch Parliamentarian Parties and Baloch issue
Baloch leaders lifted voice for gaining support to nation’s stance on international forums but few parasitic entered in fold of international politics, greed to enjoy this piece of cake as they domestically are following clues of establishment. On this junctures it seems that objective circumstances are conducive for Baloch movement or controller of movement wisely scored by moving dices on chess board of politics.
Commence of fifth insurgency since 2002 ensued a lucid proactive politics by-prong, surface and underground struggle .The state de-facto rulers and their incorporated Baloch parties which are practicing fake democracy couldn’t perceive at all.
BNP especially and Baloch parties and leaders are being used to emanate perception that separatists don’t have support but ground realities are contradicted to this. The majority of Masses are disregarding election activities and parliaments because of these parties business enterprise styled politics and securing the interests of pocket of people.
State authorities have no way and they seem trapped in impasse because if these parties or simply BNP would be used internationally for disruption to separatists’ convention so it has to relinquish domestic parliamentarian politics vis-a-vis state has to manifest that Baloch are not fed-up with Pakistan but participating in election. They are doing so for merely personal interests and gluttonous of wealth.
State media claimed 13 parties in Balochistan are participating in up-coming elections going to be held in May 2013. The mentioned parties are as: Jamiatulema-e-Islam (F), Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Nazariati), Balochistan National Party (Mengal), Balochistan National Party (Awami), National Party, Pakistan Muslim League-N, Pakistan Muslim league-Q, Pakistan Peoples Party, Pashtoon Khuwa Mili Awami Party, Tehrik-e-Insaf, Jamat-e-Islami, Jamhoory Watan Party (Talal) and Jamhoory Watan Party (Aali) are including.
Above mentioned parties ever remained fail to provide right or serve common people and no one can deny this natural truth. Masses condition and province history is evident of this. Consequently, these discussed parties have lost mandate of province’s people.
These parties are unable to answer that how did they treat masses in past, presently serving and in future will sooth to down trodden to those who are suffering from promulgated parliamentarian system.
The objective circumstances are favoring separatists to surpass in politics field on rival. If state uses parties on international level to pervert game of separatists, so domestically cannot be able to maintain image that parties are not participating in election and masses have distrusted from state. Otherwise, separatists have congenial environment without any nuance to lead their agenda on international forums.
At this time Baloch secessionist is only need to develop consensus on single agenda of independence and relinquish tribal status and other minor egos which are not letting to leaded advance .They have to relinquish Sardari, Nawabi and tribal posts including class differences merely sake for the sake of Balochistan and Baloch people. If nation is supporting them only with this expectation that they must be non-snob, otherwise between them and parliamentarian politicians or Saredars will not be any tiny difference. If they do not do as, then history’s accountability is very ruthless for them as opportunist politicians doing with Baloch Nation will face.
Baloch should avail political chunk
Presently, the international political scenario has molded to favoring Baloch to avail Pakistan and Iran signed Gas-pipeline project, through it both countries will shed gripped in financial and energy crises respectively.
Pakistan is suffering from energy rises worst due to state machinery and fair administrative failures. This state has much deposits of natural gas but domestic turmoil, dissents and nations disgruntle, aren’t letting to exploit these. Because here’s people has learnt from 65 years age of this country that all things are for an oligarchies instead of egalitarians, pocket of people are enactment to secure imperialist interests and have been marginalizing the majority of masses.
Pakistan people’s party is that party which got birth from abdomen of British royal family and was gifted feuds by loyalty and good slavery of British crown. The Bhutto ever remained under British and assisted to thriving capitalism and ugly feudalism. Now once again by same party small nationalities are being crushed while using as dice to establishment by China and Iran. Mentioned party has history of collusion with Iran for genocide of Balch Nation. And now it has signed the gas pipeline project by order of establishment to black-mail international world for continuance of sustenance, means aid.
In past, Pakistan deceptively manipulated aid from imperialist states coexisting various bogus agreement or strategies, but this time the gas pipeline project seems real. In 2010, Iran and Pakistan agreed that Tehran would supply between 750 million cubic feet (21 million cubic meters) and one billion cubic feet per day of natural gas by mid-2015. In this regard, Iran carried out its side work and almost pipeline construction has accomplished of 780 kilometers (490 miles) of the pipeline on its side, which is said to cost some $1.5 million.
Pakistani officials in mid-December said Iran had promised a sum of $500 million loan and that Islamabad would meet rest of the cost incurrence regarding pipeline.
Be remembered that in Balochistan, area of Bolan, at Sunni-Suraan in 80s decade companies explored oil and Gas channels which were floating to Iran probable to that she is exploiting. Anyhow Pakistan and Iran are enjoying Baloch resources without its consent.
According to experts this pipeline confinement in Pakistan isn’t viable, until it would not extend to India or China. India is ally state of United States but China, which is already gaining cheap oil from Iran while by passing United Nations sanctions imposition.
United States and Iran has legend rivalry, so sole supper power of age has strongly opposed pipeline project between Pakistan and Iran. The state department of US said that it was providing Pakistan with alternatives that would avoid any sanction violation.
“And so we have been assisting as a government to contribute to the alleviation of the energy crises in Pakistan” said deputy acting spokesmen Patrick Ventrell.
Other hand, Iranian theocratic leader Khamenei and Pakistani President Mr. Zardari in their meeting showed defiance to America. They will implement pipeline project on ground and will disregard American pressure on them.
In Balochistan, Baloch has been suppressing by both states, mean Pakistan and Iran. Disgruntles got shape of clashes and now movements have emerged as weaponry. The side of Pakistan several times by Pakistani leaders, intellectuals and upper houses admitted their existence righteous and declared demand true, too. But other hand in front of interest establishment is continuing prosecution or claimed by Baloch Nationalists it is committing genocide of Baloch.
The Iranian Baloch on daily basis has been gall owed and is not let re-lucidity of Baloch Nationalism. This way natural process or part of nature never can be cut-out from a nation.
Baloch Nationalist while apprehending requisition of time can turn situation in their favor and internationally can boost voice or issue of Baloch on global forums. Baloch has engaged in struggle but couldn’t get registration in international media and forums which can provide it many fold tall height. It depends on sagacity of Baloch Movement leaders that how they shape situations that these fall beneficial in sack of Baloch because this pipeline has to pass via Balochistan and then toward the Nawabshah and north of Karachi.
Currently, the US, apparently Middle-East countries and Arab Gulf States are silently opposing it. Similarly, entire European states are knotted with the US and the UN seems reluctant about this pipeline project. Baloch can attain all discussed states political support by scoring sagacious game on enactment of congenial time.
The Company of Extremism
We know well, how can state rules on the people through religion and trying to be imposed its undemocratic policies on people. From History to at present time, we have been seeing that common people have been victimizing and never get justice.
Because, culprits are used name of religion and on other hand state claims to be safe guard of religion that might reason; culprits get license in the name of religion. Pakistan has long timeline history of murders and its feet go to camp of extremism.
It’s horrible for us that people of this country are living and dying here.
Though, extremism has given benefits to undemocratic minds and they have ruled on people without check & balance. Pakistan is being treated like Market, instead a Country. Market always has products and goods, none can apply rules in the shadow of ethics, hence to impose rules which will be helped out to sell out its products, unfortunate; all things have tagged of extremism.
Pakistan had first martial law in Lahore on 6th March, 1953 against the Ahamdis. It was not only martial law but it was to put a stone in this land for ruling over the people in the name of religion.
Democracy and Justice are beautiful words but they all work when people are treated as Citizen, not like property or animal-cart.
Company of the extremism was introduced by establishment and General Zia ul Haq pasted name of Mujaahideen than he planted hatred seeds of extremisms in Punjab. Mujaahideen are sent from here. Then, what should we anticipate that these kinds of steps can be ensured democratic values.
In the name of religion, is the policy of establishment for suppressing citizen of own country and we can see what is happening in Balochistan?
No one is able to speak out for Baloch people because it could be counted into against religion and country.
Company of extremism benefited Dictator Zia ul Haq but also it has given more profits to Dictator Pervez Musharraf who adopted policy Kill-kidnap and rule and this company of extremism has provided shelter to undemocratic people and thugs. Pervez Musharraf did change only name of the company and written Taliban for soothing a west block though its policies as have worked as in era of Dictator Zia.
When religion becomes policy of state and state holders trying to be applied for their own interests after than disaster will come out. Nowadays in Pakistan people cannot get justice but are being killed in the name of religion. Pakistan’s first independent Judiciary is also failed to put culprits into jail.
Still, the company of extremism is producing extremists’ mind. Lashkar-e-Jhangi has strongholds in Punjab and everyone knows where they have safe houses but state cannot find out them. The company of extremism always plays its rule to encounter other things.
If hidden hands want to throw out the fragile democracy, they can bring new face with painted religious colour from existing company. Therefore, none asks them even a single question.
In Pakistan, recently blasts have increased and state is failed to capture militants. From January to February 99 blasts have been reported in 2013.
In Balochistan, Lashkar-e-Jhangi banned organization is freed to walk and kill anyone and agency is unable to arrest them but same agency can hold operation on villages of Balochistan.
Why lashkar-e-Jhangi is being moved to Balochistan? This militant group attacked twice at Hazara People, in January where 81 people were killed and 121 were injured in a Car Bomb Blast in Quetta in 2013 and second attack on February, 84 people were killed and over a hundred people wounded. Banned organizations are promoting sectarian violence and this might be happened that company of extremism is thinking that if they lead sectarian violence in whole country and especially in Balochistan to encounter there freedom movement, it would be more dangerous because case of Balochistan will not be lessened by Baloch common people, their people are disappeared around 14365 and over 700 hundred have been killed during recent years.
If the company of extremism, thinks that to send an elephant of sectarian violence can encounter its opponent or fragile democracy, they should think that one day elephant of sectarian violence can be ruined whole country and then company of extremism will be unable to safe even itself.
The company of extremism gives benefits its projects but how long will it work?
Real holders of the state must think that people of country are not goods, nor animal-cart, now should be stopped to apply policy of company of extremism.
Company of extremism cannot work any more and one day it has to be ended.
Take Money – No Justice II
Missing Persons of Balochistan
Balochistan is put into unrest situation since decades what should be solution? Still, Pakistan government and establishment are looking confused to giving any kind of key answer. Instead of solving problems they add on military operation in Balochistan.
Nowadays Baloch people have had learnt more from their injured-past and broken-present. Sadly, as Baloch people should have supported from citizen of Pakistan; they have received only SILENCE and IGNORENCE that makes them strange among citizens.
No doubt, few voices have arisen and picked pen up on issues of Balochistan but in larger amount Baloch people are being treated as alien.
In Balochistan, more than 25 journalists have been killed since Musharraf Era, have we heard strong voice for them? Even journalists communities haven’t talked on it although slogan of journalists without border always is chatted but in case of Baloch Journalists; lines of borders are being snatched.
Not only in case of journalists; Baloch citizens are getting dead bodies at daily bases.
Balochistan is bleeding and when they search missing persons whose are being missed from Dictator Musharraf’s period and numbers of missing persons are more than 14000.
Supreme Court of Pakistan is hearing case of Balochistan even though decision of Supreme Court has been changed Prime Minister of Pakistan but on Balochistan’s matter people cannot see any bold decision only Dates upon Dates, for time being people might happy to see that Supreme Court is doing something for Baloch but at ground realities things are very much changed.
Common and victim families all are awaiting for decision and Baloch people have realized that Supreme Court can walk in Balochistan and be able to issue fire-statements those can be taken high place in Media. Victim families want justice, not paper statements.
Balochistan needs solution and system of state is unwilling to deliver to Baloch people.
Supreme Court hasn’t done any thing for families of missing person. Agencies of Pakistan take oath in Supreme Court and then said that they don’t have an idea about missing person even don’t know about death-bodies those are founded out on the streets of Balochistan.
If establishment of Pakistan is failed to recognize, who kidnapped and is killing so how will people get to know about their people?
It means agencies are incompetent, if it is not and they are very much capable then they know well about missing persons and dead-bodies but unable to accept Bitter-Truth that missing persons are under the umbrella of agencies.
Since many times, have been writing that Baloch people will never accept even one penny on their beloved’s dead bodies.
When establishment has been denied that they have no idea about missing person after than why Government is giving advertisements in newspapers and offering ransom to victim families.
Government had given around 30 names of Baloch people who have been murdered. Still, establishment of Pakistan can’t understand, Balochistan people will never give up and have been receiving bodies in blood and homes are empty.
If government is able to shake its sane approach, should see real solution of Balochistan.
Is establishment proving that Pakistan’s courts are unable to give justice and give money to them? Then, why have built up large building of courts when justice is sleeping and money-bank runs on the streets and government and agencies are beating drums and chanting, Take Money – No Justice but common people are saying Give Justice – No Money.
Baloch people are not in market for selling their beloved and all things can’t be settled on money-tables. If establishment or Dictator Musharraf accepted war against terror, not because they were willing to finish golden coin of extremism but they were known that peanuts will come as in era of Dictator Zia ul haq.
Therefore, now stop imposing thinking of establishment on common people. People have refused to accept amount.
We don’t know whether Pakistan government and establishment can stop to hurt people whose eyes are already filled out in tears.
At least, Supreme Court must take sue motu and see that how government is indirectly selling out justice. One thing has been cleared that missing persons and dead-bodies’ all roads lead to the establishment. Let’s see whether Supreme Court is going to take sue motu on it and will be able to pass orders or only fire-statements for newspapers and media.
Pakistan government and establishment ought to decide, how to handle problem of Balochistan, because Balochistan is not a market where establishment comes and purchases people.
Supreme Court voids Reco Diq Project, why not Saindak Gold Project and Sui Gas field?
Reco Diq copper and gold project (detailed report published in previous edition of Bolan Voice Magazine) voided by Supreme Court of Pakistan due to non-beneficence of Balochistan. The Government of Balochistan filed a writ against Australian Company BHP (Broken Hill Holding Ltd) with objection that company extracting major benefits and doesn’t pay due rights to heirs, means Balochs.
The Australian company sublet the project to a Canadian company Barrack Gold Corporation and Chili’s Antofagasta respectively. These discussed companies in joint ventured group of Tethyan copper company. They made agreements with Balochistan government and implementation of project on ground as for production, like survey and feasibility spent $400 million and even afterward announced promotion in share of province till 45% from gross income which was showing their faith and sincerity into project.
The government of Balochistan and Supreme Court nullified all the agreements with Tethyan Company after 19 years. The first agreement was signed between Balochistan Development Authority (BDA) and BHP in 1993. Such acts dissuade foreign investor in area but entices to some others to plunge in region prominently China.
Other running projects in Balochistan, like Saindek situated in Chaghi district of Balochistan was discovered in 1970s preserving deposits of Gold and Copper. This project was set-up by Saindek Metals Ltd, a company fully owned by the Government of Pakistan with collaboration of Chinese Engineers and technicians by the end of 1995 at a cost of PKR 13.6 billion.
Subsequently, Pakistan and China signed a formal contract of $350 million for the development of Saindek Copper-Gold mine. The mine was leased for a 10 years period to Metallurgical Corporation of China Ltd. As per lease agreement 50% of revenues from the mine of to MCC, 48% was given to the Government of Pakistan, while the 2% to the Government of Balochistan but real heir Baloch was seen anywhere to get share of wealth which is exploiting from his land’s core.
Trial production of Saindek started in 1995 with commitment of funding from the Government of Pakistan. The four months trial operation had a monthly production rate of 1700 tones of copper, 60000z of gold, 120000z of silver. These figures mentioned by project source and it is sound amount if would be given to here’s masses systematically. A small amount was given to some people as political bribe for facilitation in plundering process. For project infrastructure, machinery, hospital, residential colonies were eracted but all these were not for indigenous people but for out-siders, even labor was brought from foreign or other areas.
In 2002, the Government of Pakistan invited foreign investors to provide funding for project. The Pakistan government awarded the mining project to the Metallurgical Corporation of China (MCC) Ltd under a 10 years lease due to expire in October 2012, the agreement addendumed for six years more. Under the terms of deal, MCC paid an annual rent of 500,000 for the mine to the Government of Pakistan. Under the re-negotiated terms, 50% of the proceeds from the mine were retained by MCC, while 48% of the proceeds went to the Pakistan Government and once again Baloch had been ignored. Although the mine is property of Baloch and the infrastructure was funded by the Balochistan Government, comically province got share only 2% of proceed. This amount also is being distributed to those whose are pocket politician or agent of establishment. The terms of the lease agreement caused major discontent among Balochistan’s population. And as per Aghaz-e-Balochistan some figure changes has been brought but on ground these has not effected, yet.
Another deficit project for Baloch is Sui, situated on juncture of Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab but this area falls in province Balochistan a property of Baloch but is enjoyed by and exploited others. Sui Gas deposits were discovered in 1952. At the time of discovery, Sui Gas field was considered among the largest natural gas field in the world with recoverable reserves of around 12 Tcf. Despite diminishing reserves over time, Sui Gas field still remains the highest natural gas producing fields in Pakistan, substantially to the country’s requirements with daily production of around 501 MMscf. Some years back it was written in third a class book that Sui Gas field meets 73% natural gas requirements of Pakistan but now officials are mentioning production of its only 22%.
Formally, in 1955 Sui Gas field started production to country-wide through Pakistan Petroleum Ltd (PPL) and the flagships of this gas field is a Karachi based company. The company showed 11,690 Bcf recoverable reserves, 501 MMscf gas daily average production from drilled 82 wells.
Preliminary, there was a great contract among rates of provinces produced gas but almost a year back these had been equalized. In the regard of Gas royalty or charges the center was owed to province, Rs. 600 billion during regime of Akbar Khan Bugti but now it is affirming only Rs.120 billion and consented to pay them in installments, mean Rs.2 billion yearly.
Fifth-Operation on Balochistan! Turns into Black Hole..!
Since 1948, Balochistan has been remained at the gun point of Operation. Our senior journalists/writers and by now we have been writing on Balochistan’s hard situations.
While writing question knocks at the door of thoughts that why do not they learn from history? Indeed, they have learnt that they have not learnt from History.
If anyone had learnt from past mistakes, would not have moved wheel of operation on Balochistan. Sadly, we are seeing the momentum of wheel of operation that is caused of violation of Human Rights.
If we turn the pages of 1973 constitution which tell us about good laws and human rights protection, after reading Pakistan Constitution when we peep into Balochistan; it gives us another worst scenario of Human Rights.
The military operations and their purposes are still questions. If establishment thinks, they want to ensure peace and to solve problem of Balochistan then why don’t they apply rule of table-talks?
Establishment of Pakistan is same that works with US at War against Terrorism at a same time military of Pakistan appreciates table-talks with Taliban. Taliban are non-state actors but for them, Table-Talks are acceptable.
When sane class demands from Establishment of Pakistan that must talk with Baloch, then its demand has been rejected and statesmen are telling us that Baloch nationalist groups have put guns against state. Baloch are not non-state actor, nor willing to impose their demands at gun point.
If they chose path of mountains, we should rub our memory that Baloch are forced to choose path of mountain by five Military Operations held on Balochistan. We should not forget when Baloch Leaders came down on mountains in 1960s. How state behaved with them?
Five Operations are not a Joke if anyone is feeling pain for Kashmir; they must realize that Balochistan is burning because of oil of war.
Dictator General Prevez Musharraf’s Bloody Policy “kill-Kidnap & rule” has added fuel to the fire in Balochistan. Since Era of Musharraf, people of Balochistan are missing more than 14000. According to report 600 missing persons’ dead bodies have been founded on the roads or streets of Balochistan, “360 Baloch killed in 2010 and 297 killed in 2011,” as reported.
Though, Supreme Court of Pakistan has heard Missing Person Case and Supreme Court just issued 160 Orders during its 68 hearings, even after Supreme Court, Balochistan has not received any positive result .As usual Empty Promises by weaker-governments and Now Empty Orders by Supreme Court.
Including Freedom of Expression is threatened at the war as result murder of 25 Journalists of Balochistan since Musharraf period to till now.
Despite the hard situation in Balochistan, state should have followed soft policy. Alas, State again repeats its mistake and has driven wheel of operation on Baloch in area of Mashkay on 25 December 2012.
25th December, A day of Christmas and birth day of Founder of Country Jinnah, when whole nation was celebrating joys and were passing to wishes with each other. On the same day Balochistan was facing fires of operation on 25th December, 2012, Baloch children were sitting on the roads instead of sleeping in warm beds.
Media and social activists have always ignored issues of Balochistan. They are as repeating mistakes as in 70s Era when whole Media was singing song “All is Well” in East Bengal. Time rang bad signal and said “All was Unwell”.
Balochistan is crossing operation and situations are making hard decision. This Operation on Balochistan is going to turn into Black Hole if this finally happens, no one would return them (Baloch) even on Table-Talks.
Real Power Makers of State must decide that where should stand on Table-Talks or weaponry-Tank? Fifth Operation on Balochistan is turns into Black Hole; can statesmen stop it to turning into Black Hole?
Bhutto (s) of Pakistan People’s Party is the best comprador of Imperialist!
In 21st century, in Pakistan the “Pakistan People’s Party” which was created with intention to assist establishment to counter Sindhi Nationalism and crushing the other nationalities and defuse looming socialism impacts in decades of 70s and 80s. Establishment’s other mean behind creating PPP was to crush oppressed Nationalists who revolt against imperialist or defiance front of the ally state’s establishment, but said party ever worked as comprador for imperialist and establishment even against the party basic manifesto. This party is secular but most loyal to establishment; hence its second but lifetime Chairperson Ms. Benazir Bhutto established extremist Taliban Organization on demand of her master establishment against essence of PPP.
In 1973, it was people’s party government and Mr. Zulfiqar Bhutto founder of party was ruler when a massive operation was launched against Baloch who are non-religious and socialist inclined, and Mr. Bhutto personally went to Iran and got Apatache Helicopters, modern war technology from Raza Shah Pehlvi (was puppet leader of Iran for capitalist bloc) to use against Baloch and appease Pakistani establishment and to tighten his ties with imperialist or capitalist block. Afterward a fostered baby by Bhutto hanged him, and in this way a Parouh of People’s Party vanished.
Mr. Bhutto didn’t respect majority decision and denied from Awami League of Sheikh Mujeeb-ur-Rehman to transfer power. He was not democratic by supporting establishment and opposing the Awami League Leader Sheikh Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, who won election in 1971 as landslide. But Mr. Bhutto didn’t give respect to peoples vote and said, “You are there, we are here”, “Tum wahan, hum yahan”. He supported establishment merely for getting rule which is tradition and identification of people of People’s Party, but ever denied from truth and this is killer of peoples’ desires.
In 2002, Mr. Pervez Musharraf launched fifth operation in Balochistan after formation of Pakistan. He was dictator and cruel, hence killed and disappeared Baloch. In 2007, the Democratic Party means Pakistan People’s Party came in power, then a new series “kill and dump” was launched. Baloch youth have been abducted and their mutilated bodies are being thrown. This is an exceptional gift of Democratic Party to oppressed nation Baloch. Here it seems, this party is much ahead than establishment, even the successor dictator.
Presently, in Mashkey in shape of operation people’s party government has given gift of New year to Baloch. Even this party claims, in Balochistan, nowhere operation isn’t conducted and they don’t believe in army operations but in reconciliation. In fresh operation civilian population are targeted.
People’s party like ancient hierarchic system running and Bhuttos are crown owner of this party. First Zulfiqar Bhutto, second Benazir Bhutto and now converted into Bhutto Bilawal got the position of chairperson of party. Out of Bhuttos family living beings in entire Pakistan are stupid, they don’t have wit, only Bhuttos can be chairperson, it is heavenly revelation!
Other Sardars, Syeds, Pirs, Waderas, and Nawabs are like mini Parouhs and are dealing their matters on terrain level. Common people are getting birth to facilitate and serve them and themselves don’t have any life requirements and human needs in 21st century.
People must learn post age of this which is pocket party of imperialist and time to time lift voice of secularism but give birth to Talban, raise voice of democracy but don’t respect majority mass or won party, produce voice for down-trodden peoples but orders or supports operations against weak nationalities. Most painful, basis on land that up-rooted where’s nationalism. The PPP is only performing as comprador for imperialist with slogan “Kal Bhi Bhutto Zinda Tha Aaj Bhi Bhutto Zinda Hey”, but fact is this, “Bhutto Zinda hi rahey, magar Awam mar gaya”, Bhuttos whether long-live but masses have dead.
People must understand lesson of history and indentify betraying role of People’s Party and make accountable to it for deceiving long and spoiling nationalistic and socialistic forums, and get unchained from imperialist and compradors.
Gaza: Your Brother is dead..!
Middle East problem is getting worst time to time instead of it should be solved but unfortunately we see war among Israel and Palestine.
On November 2012, week battle fought between them. What they have received in last? After killing each other people. According to report, “The recent fighting between Israel and Hamas and armed groups in Gaza took place from November 14 to 21, 2012. It involved unlawful attacks on civilians by both sides. At least 103 Palestinian civilians and 4 Israeli civilians died during the fighting, reported in Human Rights Watch organization.
This is not first time, fighting have started between both parties by claiming ownership on land of Gaza.
Why Gaza – West Bank is very important for Israel and Palestine? If you control main route that leads you to hold your feet on Palestine even can easily involve in politics of entire Middle East.
Hence, conflict between Israel and Palestine is being coloured by religious minds or capitalist class.
They know well that in the name of religion, this war can long be led and to be made people very crazy bye use of this tool and war becomes holy and emotion of people to be drove.
But crux matter is not like that as they are painting religious colour on the wall of Middle East.
One school of thought saying if Israel and Palestine conflict would be solved, then foreign power makers have no need to stay on land of Middle East countries. While sitting on conflict – boat of Israel and Palestine to float in Middle East.
All game mean is making business and its price has to be paid by innocent people of Israel and Palestine, though Palestinian people are suffering more than Israelis.
Israel’s common people are beautiful; sadly their government policy towards Gaza’s citizen of Palestine is.
Historical background is given proof that Israelis are real son of soil Jherulism but on the other hand we cannot hide our face that now Palestinian also owns this land.
For instance, if conflict did not solve, who will be more suffered? Can leaf of history forgive us that each decade we slaughter our children because the want of Gaza Land? Cannot we make peace between both nations?
Muslim Countries should let-off to colour of religion. This dispute religion doesn’t talk about conquer or offering sacrifices of innocent children. This chapter is must be closed and need to sit on table-talks for solving conflict: Israel and Palestine.
We are not in position to afford any weapon state, if this world becomes weapon world and everyone start putting gun at people after then we will be sent alive in the hell, don’t need to wait for Hell & Heaven after death. Such kinds of conflict are promoting numbers of weapon and nuclear arms.
Palestinian suffers in Gaza and this bitter truth knows everyone. World should not give excuse for anger, and then same anger can be exploited in the hands of power makers, who want to see their own agenda.
World have to listen sorrow of Palestinians, besides Muslim countries should also remove negative impact of Israelis among their people. On the row of hates, problems will be fallen. Do we need to solve problems or let them drop? Question needs an answer.
When, our ears hear voice that Your Brother is dead. What ought to reaction, know victim well when their houses have been dismantled and dead body of sibling is on the street?
Gaza problem, must be solved otherwise it would be gone in worst position and people of Israel and Palestine to be paid heavy price. Before we pay heavy price, should solve to this conflict that can be caused to kill smiles of innocent people.
Jobs and incentives offer to Baloch insurgents
Government of Pakistan has constituted a committee to settle impending matters with Baloch Insurgents. This committee dubbed (APEX) and its meeting held, Governor Balochistan Mr. Zulfiqar Ali Magsi headed the session. The ‘APEX’ members are elucidated as; Zulfiqar Ali Magsi Governor Balochistan, Mohammad Aslam Raisani Chief Minister Balochistan, Letuentent Mohammad Alim Khatak Southern Command, Babar Yaqoob Chief Secretary Balochistan, Ubaidullah Khatak Inspector General Frontier Corps, Tariq Umar Khatak Inspector General Police Balochistan.
The ‘APEX’ offered Baloch insurgents that come-down from mountains, hence they will be received with honor and will be given Jobs and incentives. The provincial government will establish a cell to fund these persons and work for their welfare.
Be remembered that Interior Minister Mr. Rehman Malik also had offered such packages or for negotiation but his all offers were disapproved by insurgents, and subsequently, Mr. Rehman Malik also altered his statement that he offered to those who capitulate and don’t challenge the writ of government. The recent offer and previous Rehman Malik’s offer have a tiny difference, he had offered Baloch Leaders who are living abroad, and ‘APEX’ offered to workers or common fighters who are on ground of war. Leaders rejected all offers and workers are also seemed to be not willing to this proposal; all the tactics of mending are going in vain.
In media, several times above mentioned authorities stated that these are handful people but majority is with them, as well as these personalities or their successors have used words that they crush them and Balochs’ Movement will be wiped-out at all face of earth, forever. One of them, a dictator absurdly said, “We have cut the stem of tree, by now leaves will be dried or demised spontaneously” but his statement has proved false, because after ten years the insurgency is going on without any pause, even it got much power and innovation.
Mr. Raisani Chief Minister, in early days of his Ministry had gestured in local and International Media that he would settle all contentions with Baloch Insurgents, otherwise he would resign in order to failure and wouldn’t up-hold this honored portfolio. However, Mr. Raisani hasn’t remained honest with his words and ruling even than un-resolve of this dispute.
The attitude is of rulers mentioning that they don’t want to understand dispute or deliberately are offering such opts for what Baloch Insurgents never demanded. The offering Jobs and money is mock at them and implying your insurgency isn’t affecting us. It is bizarre that Baloch paid sacrifices of lives merely for money and Jobs!
Second reason of offering can be this that states authorities used their tactics to quell insurgency in Balochistan, now they want to buy Baloch Movement’s workers and splint from struggle. If situations reached on this position but couldn’t, hence it is very late, because founder of organizations and their structure have deepened roots in masses, and leadership of these isn’t awkward that demolishes their political erected heights merely against some amount or Jobs.
Government authorities’ insincerity can be assessed that on the one hand they are offering incentives and on the other hand they are busy in hatching conspiracies in various facets, like backing religious elements and thriving, hiring fake tribal and so on. Means state authorities want to camouflage by offering jobs and incentive, in core they are training combative elements to crush Baloch Resisting Movement. Hence, offers are eye-wash or misleading manipulations to media and hood-winking in eyes of world.
The offering Jobs to insurgents is a bitter experience or a solid fact in front of parliamentarian parties and politicians, who are claiming for provision of jobs, facilities to people, hence they are looking fail in their means. They ought to adopt the way of insurgents, where state will offer them these itself, because from assemblies they couldn’t get achievements, except personal benefit and equipment of luxuries.
The government authorities must recognize entity and stance of Baloch Insurgents and come to the point for resolve of long-standing issue and stop abuses of human rights. Because these people are sons and daughters of this land, hence they can never be faded-away from face of earth. If we assume, the drove-out by blind use of power, then this earth will give re-birth others, mean indigenous people can’t be defeated on their motherland. Only way is that they are to be given their demanded status but not Jobs or incentives.
Baloch insurgents are ripped ideologically and they never step-down from successors’ commenced struggle, and one of among them said, “State against Jobs and Incentives demands for withdrawal from National Heritages, Traditions, Political Affiliations and Ideology, but we can never compromise on nationalism and national heritages and will struggle till last breath”.
War against Terrorism
Age of holy bullet..!
Our history, forefathers, contemporary past and we all are at the war. War that has no end yet, time to time it comes at our door and kills our beloveds.
Why don’t we have once upon stories of war? But we are still writing and compiling story pages of wars.
Can people make peaceful world? How is it possible with the gun of war to grab flower of peace?
People have had swords and now guns in the name of sacred words; it is hard to stop them because they would never accept what other people are saying?
Whenever people have led wars on the scared horse and to be claimed that they have to convince world, what they have in their pocket.
Whether people are sent to the world to conquer each other or to fall rain of love on earth?
No doubt, all wars are being led by powerful ruling class and when they need to make large army to defeat other groups, and then they get equipped with religion.
In the name of religion, you can kill more than thousands people, none will ask you; if you ask mistakenly question, then you would be charged against his belief or God.
Wars, they give us graveyards, orphan children in the streets, orphan beloveds at their doors and tears in the eyes.
Who will to conquer or convince others? Those warriors can not be convinced, nor be able to conquered instead storm of wars make chaos and hegemony on others.
By Wars you would rule on people but you cannot win their love. This is simple formula that is not understood by them, who have guns in the name of God and load sacred bullets to kill people that man is gifted on the land by the nature.
We condemn our undeveloped period of history where people killed each other, today queen of history is looking at us and asking still what you people are doing, you are all in cave of war?
After 9/11, world turned against terrorism and said; no one could impose on us their beliefs.
People should have understood that whom they had prepared to be against one country, tomorrow they might stand and coming towards their own houses, too. As it happened on 9/11, In the name of war, few groups wanted to lead ruling on the world.
War is not only solution of problem but sometimes through war you can stop mad rats who want to enter in stranger houses and force people for running on their commands. For leading wars this could be fair enough statement. Do we still need to have solutions that how can world stop loading guns, in the name of sacred words?
World is being forced to enter Age of Holy Bullet, if this horror step doesn’t vanish after then human can not live peacefully. War against terrorism, now must be ended. It has to give full stop if world doesn’t give full stop, later this war might be given full stop to people’s breath.
On the land people need age of love, not to age of holy bullets. Those are killing others and making policies under the shadow of extremists’ approaches, they should think that footless policies are not durable; in fact, weaker policies can be injured themselves.
Innocent children ask us that why do not you put guns into graves instead at our beloved?
AKhatar Mengal is Sympathizer for Missing Baloch but not cause of Missing Baloch
If we retrospect for understanding politics of Balochistan Nation Party (Mengal), it become very easy to understand dramatized changes in view of this party. This party releases blustery statements but beside point never on target. It is parliamentarian and instantly non-parliamentarian, too. It was deceived and snatched government, but today is friend and guest of those people again.
A decade ago in 2000, when a movement roused in Balochistan and a portion of nationalist Baloch launched armed struggle for secession from Pakistan, then the State also reacted and took measures as against movement to curb that. It was initial stage and Balochistan masses were unaware of real political situations, hence sincere could distinguish and tricky politicians including imminent situations. At that time, Balochistan National Party called masses for support of discussed nationalist struggle. BNP also cashed this issue because masses came in large number in its procession on call mentioned party, but leader remain in limits.
In Musharraf era, Akhatar Jan Mengal head of Balochistan National Party was arrested. The people expected that as soon as he is released the politics of BNP will have a great change toward engaged nationalism. Mr. Mengal, in the very beginning days of Pakistan Peoples Party government got released and large number of Baloch received him with desire that Akhtar Jan Mengal endured jail agonies; now he will join hands of insurgent but paradoxically, he at Ayub Stadium announced something against peoples wishes. Consequently, public meeting participant got dishearten and left procession venue, many emotional youth brawled and disturbed BNP meeting worst. And because of uproar itself BNP workers left stadium.
On 27th August, 2006, Akbar Khan Bugti was martyred which made furious to Baloch youth and Akhtar Mengal led protest and at Manan Chowk, where he emotionally made announcement but afterward he couldn’t stand with his words. Suppose, he said, “We had a relation of strand with this state and by now, it has cut-off”. Crowed applauded this but few months later, Akhtar Jan Mengal withdrew from his stance and said we haven’t abandoned this state’s parliament eternally.
From these it seems that BNP ever seeks for any hot event and tries to cash it. Since Musharraf regime to date Baloch secessionist were allegedly abducted by state’s security agencies and forces and it is on and on still. The relatives of these Missing Persons formed an organization for protesting and collecting data, which holds its protest in different manners. After their protest on national and international level’s, now world turned their attention toward them including Supreme Court of Pakistan, especially United Nation’s team visited Balochistan and took interest in Missing Baloch issue, which got upheaval in media and institutes, so as usual BNP leader Akhtar Jan Mengal also appeared to catalyze this and score points for his party by effortless task.
Supreme Court stated that Akhtar Jan Mengal appealed to be part of this trial. He is living abroad, but came Pakistan and appeared before court as well as he presented Six Points demand from Court including other institutes.
Akhtar Jan Mengal’s advocacy for Missing Baloch is beyond the understanding. Everyone knows those people have gone on missing, were raising slogan of freedom. Mean the cause of missing is “freedom demand”. Akhtar Jan Mengal never supported the Missing Persons cause, but sympathizer for them only. He openly said we haven’t cut-off our relation from assemblies. The organization of relatives of Missing Persons also rejected his Six Points.
First, BNP cashed masses sentiments in pretext newly birth of present phase of secession movement, then strived to get popularized in shadow of Akbar Khan Bugti martyrdom and now shedding tears for missing persons without agreeing with their aim.
This time most probable BNP is unsuccessful to cash burning issue in its favor, because Missing Persons relatives demanding first semblance in ideology or stance, mean Akhtar Jan Mengal party give-up this state politics and share grief and pain with them, otherwise his activities regarding this matter would be assumed by Baloch, like as ladder to reach assemblies’ position, nothing else.
United Nations Mission in Pakistan.
If your child disappeared, what would you do?
United Nation working group on Enforced or Involuntary disappearances visited to Pakistan from 10 to 20 September, 2012. WGIED visited Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Quetta and Peshawar, during ten days visits, as reported.
While UN mission visiting to Pakistan, some people were crying that it would be violation our sovereignty. We cannot understand that how is possible, if UN any group visits Pakistan, according to law we all are bound to follow law and we must shake our memory that Pakistan is member of United Nations – Human Rights, Pakistan has to abide by charter of UN because they signed it. While signing UN Charter, they did not read what should we do in future?
Then, how would it be violation of sovereignty?
We do not understand that Supreme Court is willing to open Swiss Bank case though President Asif Zardari has immunity but Chief Justice wants to send President of Pakistan to foreign courts, does it not violation of constitution and sovereignty? For instance, UN mission group came for investigation on corruption cases of government then none could oppose but this UN mission came and investigated corruption on Human Rights, which is unacceptable.
UN mission group had come to analysis Human rights violation because since Musharraf’s era, people have been missing no one knows where are they?
Pakistan is a State, not a tiny or crowded plat-form where people come and gone.
A country claims, it is fighting against terrorism, it has Nuclear Power, it has independent judiciary, having powerful army, independent media and also claims that without this country in the region peace cannot be brought.
So, what is reason? That around 14365 people are disappeared; has sky devoured missing persons or is earth swallowed them?
This does not happen only in Balochistan but people have been disappeared even in Sindh.
Government says only 100 are missing and Baloch people say that more than 14,000 people are still missing, as reported.
At least government has accepted that people are missing.
If some people are saying that none person is missing, they must peep into those houses, where they are found empty and members of a victim family weep silently and looking at door that one day their missing members would knock back at the door.
Former dictator Musharraf’s adopted bloody policy that kidnapped, killed and ruled. He thought that by his bloody policy could be remained in power if world asked him regarding missing persons; he would tell them that they were terrorists.
Time is big judge and it has proved, his bloody policy fired back at institutions of Pakistan, now world asks, what is happening, why people are being missed and killed? Where are voices of Human Rights?
UN mission met with Ms. Hina Rabbani Khar Minister of foreign Affairs, she shared situation of missing persons since Musharraf’s period. No doubt, she has taken a good step.
It was comical gesture when Chief Jsutice Iftkhar Ahmed Choudhry refused to meet with UN mission, it was CJ Iftkhar Choudhry who said that if he gave order then system will not run more, while hearing case on missing persons, he did give such hot-statement.
Then, what happened that he refused to meet with UN mission on missing persons. Does CJ Ifkhtar not know laws of Pakistan? Does he not understand importance of UN mission and its legal status? His refusal has cleared picture and people got to know that what is in his mind and where he stands?
UN mission while listening anguish of missing persons in Balochistan and Sindh, such step has given them a raise of hope that at least under sky some hearts are still ready to listen to their sorrows.
UN mission will be finalized its report in 2013 but they have given conclusion of its official visit; WGEID report is balanced and has given 17 recommendation to ensure Human Rights. Report’s last line says that “it is the duty of the state of Pakistan to take all necessary measure to make those rights effective.”
UN mission visited to Pakistan, they did not violate Pakistan’s sovereignty, in fact some institutions did not meet the delegation, and they have violated charter of Human Rights.
Common people are happy that UN mission came and saw violation of Human Rights, in Pakistan.
We cannot make beautiful country unless there are Human rights. We must think of it that what are we doing? Do we have any answer when mother asked that “UN mission conveyed message of a mother to all persons of Pakistan, “If your child disappeared, what would you do?
Baloch Missing Persons and role of Judiciary
The Marri tribe, after spending a long extradition period in Afghanistan, when returned Balochistan in 1990, they populated a small town “New Kahan” in vicinity of Quetta. At the same period the veteran Baloch Nationalist leader Khair Bukhsh Marri began public study circles for Baloch political maturity at his residence on Arbab Karam khan road “HaqTawar”.
The conduction of study circle was beyond the understanding of simple minds but seasoned politicians were over sighting situations shrewdly, especially on political variations in Balochistan.
The martyrdom of three Baloch; Gul Bahar Bangulzai, Sobedar Marri and Wahid Bukhsh Baloch at Kalat in 2001, not only opened eyes of common Baloch but also shaped a new political arena in Balochistan. Since the incident occurred in Kalat, we can find a series of disappearances, target killing and Kill and dump of Baloch youth.
During this series several time people after abduction released and they were also given a handful amount of rupees or few parcels of sugar. Might they were treated for renounce from demand or alterations in stance, but apparently these coaxing measures were seen unavailing.
In 2006, Balochistan fell in fire of war when an Army operation with sophisticated and lethal equipments launched by Dictator General Musharraf, and during his regime abruptly Baloch Missing Person number had risen up.
Yesterday’s Chief Minister and Home Minister were felicitating to Pakistan’s people on TV screen and in leading news of print media that Musharraf is man of deliverance for Baloch, because Baloch were subdued by Sardars/Nawab Bugti. Today, these politicians are saying they were unaware about Dera Bugti operation. Besides knowing these politician histories, this Judiciary is also prolonging case but evading from issuance any order to penalize them.
During this operation which is ongoing and resulted missing of thousands Baloch. The nationalist Baloch Parties claiming that around 14000 people are missing and they were abducted by security forces and their sub-branch agencies.
Mr. Sher Pao ex-interior minister, during a visit to Balochistan in Turbat, during a press conference admitted that around 4000 Balochs are in their custody. Recently, when United Nation’s working group was investigating in Balochistan, then Human Rights Commission Balochistan Chapter and Balochistan Bar Council head Mr. Zahoor Ahmed Shahwani quoted sayings of Mr. Sher Pao that he admitted keeping in custody of 4000 Baloch Missing Persons.
In previous days, when Supreme Court of Pakistan’s Chief Justice Iftekhar Mohd Choudary headed apex was prosecuting Missing Persons case, then three persons allegedly were abducted by security forces and Police also provided “Close Circuit Video Footage” to honorable court, which is showing by a vehicle FC was shifting discussed three Baloch to undisclosed location and a traffic police-man also testified before the court that these three mentioned Missing Person were abducted by security forces in front of him. The discussed persons were ordered to produce before the court but paradoxically their mutilated bodies were thrown. Court about this incident seems helpless except these remarks “don’t kill but make trail”.
On the other hand federal government formed a judicial commission to deal missing persons’ horrible issue. But very sadly, this commission instead of providing any soothe to depressed families, has rhetorically used words of security agencies, and presented Missing Persons number below than hundred, as it ridiculed on Baloch families. Relatives of Missing Persons also denied appearing before mentioned commission’s sessions due to incredibility.
The Missing Persons case is under proceeding, hence Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftekhar Mohd Chaudry refused offer of meeting with United Nation’s working group. The Missing persons relatives rushed toward United Nations team as opposite to Judicial Commission and Supreme Court of Pakistan. They say even knowing all facts Supreme Court has not arrested any single securities official, even then receiving of more than 400 missing Balochs mutilated bodies. Supreme Court itself showed anger at security agencies official and provincial government authorities, because they were summoned to appear before court but they never complied with court orders.
These attitudes propelled or persuaded Balochistan’s people that state laws and institutes aren’t for them. They must do themselves for their protection or tolerate atrocities but never bend to judicial commission or courts, which aren’t consented to provide them any justice. Because experiences have taught, and now Balochistan people have abandoned to lodge report or complain for being prosecuted.
The deeds of statesmen, who swear for loyalty with country on national days, are violating constitution and laws but declaring to others traitor or non-state actor and agent of antagonistic states. Supreme Court higher authority Justice Iftekhar Mohd Chaudry categorically stated that constitution breakdown in Balochistan. If constitution isn’t applying somewhere, then how this portion can be bond with any state, where people come what go through institutions of state? It is certain, they go anywhere for remedy of their problems and wounds. Their rush toward United Nation team isn’t irrational and unexpected.
Missing Persons Case is under proceeding in Supreme Court, which is only hope for relatives of missing persons. If this honored institute fails to provide beloved to relatives, then this state will be incredulous permanently for these victim people and its impact will be very deep and dreadful. The poke of other states including United Nation will be valid because state institutes denial mean negation for being its citizen.
Religious Freedom USA:
Blasphemy & forcibly convert to Islam!!!
Religion is the belief when human adopts to conquer other people, and then results would be dreadful and unacceptable. Such thing happens in Pakistan; we have been seeing and reading for a long time that Pakistan made for religion, by religion and of religion. From syllabus to National Media (Urdu Media) all speak for religion.
When people of Pakistan are taught with hatred thoughts, how can be built -up peaceful atmosphere in Pakistan?
Unfortunately, Mr. Jinnah could not eliminate extremists’ approaches and Pakistan got religious constitution. According to United States “Department of state”, International Religious Freedom reported for Pakistan, “The constitution and other laws and policies have constrained “religious freedom” and in practice, the government enforced these restrictions. The government demonstrated a tendency toward deterioration in respect for and protection of the rights to religious freedom. Report further added that there were reports of societal abuses or discriminations based on religious affiliation, belief or practice.”
Whilst reading reports on religious discrimination by international organization, all are implying that in Pakistan Non-Muslims are not saved, not only this, but including Muslims Ahmadis also declared as non-Muslims, and in Punjab Lahore court has banned Ahmadis for saying “Salaam Aleikum”.
Under such circumstances, how is this possible that non – Muslims can live safely? Pakistani establishment has made extremists groups and adopted Mujahideen policy to engraft Kashmir with Pakistan and maintain its rule on people in the name of religion, for example, Dictator Zia ul Haq and his successors rouse religion slogan time to time.
Instead of edifying to people that “Religion is belief and it has got nothing to do with sate’s affairs, but they taught people, religion is our foundation, without religion Pakistan has no future, these extremists thoughts are provoking negative thoughts, besides it criminal minds, try to maintain their business under the slogan of religion because none can ask them, why are you committing sin?
Recently, many Hindu girls have been kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam, single question was not asked, and Rinkle Kumari case is best example, a girl was crying to go with her mother but Supreme Court of Pakistan did not bother and nor asked single question to thugs.
It means, people loud the gun and fire in the name of religion, then no one would ask you that why you had committed, Pakistan received two dead bodies, first Governor of Punjab Salmaan Taseer, and second Minister of Minority Affairs Shahbaz Bhatti.
Under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) does not apply in case of Salmaan Taseer, Minister of Punjab PML-N Rana Sanaullah, spoke against Salmaan Taseer and declared him Blasphemer and said, “He must be killed”. That hatred speech spoke by a minister of Pakistan. We did not see ATA act application on him. People can use religion for their self interests; they come with stone of blasphemy and throw out on Non-Muslims and kidnap their daughters and forcibly convert to Islam.
Pakistan’s Laws are incapable to protect Non-Muslims, even they do not commit any crime but they face retribution of crime that they never committed. United state department of state reported in Religious Freedom, “Government policies do not impart equal protection to members of majority and minority religious groups”.
When Law and constitution are failed to provide safety walls to victimized groups, subsequently criminal minds while committing any crime, they do not have fear of state, and establishment of Pakistan has soft corner for extremists groups.
World of Religions don’t allow to conquer or force to convert, but here we have witnessed that how they are making under sword of religion and to defeat innocent people.
Nowadays, religion, in Pakistan, seems to be built for blasphemy, declares Ahmadis as Non Muslims and forcibly converts to Islam.
Pakistan State ought to read United states Department of state “International Religious Freedom” report, Human Rights Reports and peep through houses; those are forced to empty in the name of religion.
On the edge of sword, you can not win and nor be able to get heaven.
Though religion doesn’t guide for blasphemy and forcibly conversion to Islam, if does not then why it happens in Pakistan in the name of Islam?
Pakistani State would not be able to bring freedom of religion for its people, unless Law and Constitution get secular breath.
Repression on Hindus!
Hindus population is very ancient in this region, especially in Balochistan, where they have most sacred places; Hunglaj at bank of Hangol River, second is Kali Mata in Kalat, next scared place is in area Bolan near Soran Harisar Temple, and another one is situated in Nari Gaj area. And it is human nature that it gets birth and spend it days of childhood on any place, then loves there’s soil, because its body formation, chemical, climatic structure and romantic composition with that soil. Here’s Baloch Hindus are living for generations, Imagine if they are leaving their native land which is endeared like mother and migrating to alien land, isn’t painful…? Sure! Very painful, even its intensity is beyond to imaginations.
The Hindus population throughout Pakistan is 0.9 million which mentioned by Geo Tv a private channel. In Balochistan, is approximately 80000, where during last two years from Kalat around 40 families, Khuzdar 20 families, Mastung 20 families, Dalbandin and Nushki 20 families, Sibi 20 families, Lehri 20 families and from Jaffarabd 30 families and from Naseerabad aproxemtely 30 families have exodus to India. Only from Quetta which is capital city of province, out of 1000, 100 families mean 10% of Hindus has migrated. Be remembered Hindus community have provided this data which isn’t accurate but is in round figures.
During this a Hindus man sadly expressed his feeling and said, “A land where birds and animal migrates, then it looks totally barren and ugly, but if people living for thousands years are leaving motherland, then how it will be?”
The Hindus believe religion is main factor behind their migration and bother. And they are discontented about government provided protection. Before now, the Baloch tribal leaders were patronizing to them, resultantly they were feeling safe, but now they are also not able to do so because of Balochistan’s political tumult.
Baloch Hindus in their expression gestured, India accepting them there, but on an alien land adjustment is very tough. After difficulties people are getting habituated. Baloch Hindus further told, the areas in Balochistan bothered for them are Mastung, Kalat, Bolan, Jaffarabad, Naseerabad.
In previous days, during an interview Dr. Manan Baloch a leader of Baloch National Movement said, “Hindus are their brother and are from Baloch Community. Establishment backed religious fundamental are involved in other crimes, like abduction for ransom, hence same elements are involved in intrusion with Baloch Hindus”.
If we ponder on words of Dr. Manan Baloch which are indicating right directive toward theme of all story. Balochistan’s those areas where religious fundamentalism bolstered by establishment and running religious institutes by funds of Arab and other states are non-conducive for Hindus, like Mastung, Kalat, Khuzdar, Bolan and Dalbandin. In these discussed areas Hindus are being harassed most and from these areas mostly Hindus are migrating.
Other tribal and non-tribal areas of Balochistan are conducive for Baloch Hindus to live. Like Mekuran, Kohlu, Dera Bugti, Awaran and coastal belt, where Hindus live calmly without any scathe. These discussed areas are also Baloch majority populated, but there religious fanatic level is low. In these mentioned areas lacks Tablighee Ijtams (religious gatherings) and very low number of seminaries, due to that are peaceful for human.
Hence, understanding the situation isn’t complicated that by whom Balochistan circumstances are being made bleak for Baloch Hindus. The concern authorities are well aware of this but probable they want accomplishment of another task by these elements, consequently dodging to rein these fanatics. In this way, these are given free hand to perpetrate crime against humanity.
About nationalists, Hindus community says they are undergoing themselves because confrontation with a state isn’t a child-play. So, they aren’t able to protect them, otherwise they don’t have any ideological difference with them.
On this critical stage, Human Rights Organizations and International Community must come forth and perform a role to stop crimes against innocent people on bias of mere religion. Must take notice the robbing of powerless peoples’ properties and honored life. If they delay then lose range would be too widen and unrecoverable.
Is India being God Father of South Asia?
South Asia is the key playing region in coming time in the field of Economy. From South Asia to West can be gotten command on economy and resources of regions, too. World is going to be hub of Economic–Village, it needs to seek mild climate to run its business. Nature of capitalist turns eyes on agriculture, energy resources and consumption points, these three things exist the outsized form in South Asia.
We have seen that each era has own mode of production and exchange, hence those reflected in the respective conditions.
In past time, world had romance of Politics and Public, too where we saw healthy production of thoughts and dew of wisdom.
Repeatedly, World Power Makers have also romance with Economy (Capitalism). They think, by getting power on Economy can be ruled easily to prolong its hegemony. No doubt, South Asia will play significant role as Economy-Hub.
Who will ride on Horse of South Asian Economy? In South Asia, Afghanistan is lucrative ground and has spectrum of routs, one is connected Central Asia, then can be with South Asia, too. It leads to get throne of Economy Market.
During British Empire in sub-continent Afghanistan remained as Goat between British and Russia (USRR), everyone wanted to get strong influence in Afghanistan, none had won for gripping command, including yesterday’s Mujahideen and today’s Taliban has found out to fail keeping their hold for ruling in the name of Islam.
Afghanistan has been in the series of war for decades, now they have learnt and want to see bright future of Afghanistan. Afghanistan is on changing phase and clean-up its war of fog because Afghans are keen to see future citizens without wars and guns. They know well that friendship with neighbors must be established and formed, except this no state can move onward.
Who will drive car on shining roads of Afghanistan and will be able to reach the Central Asia, and then South Asian Market. Afghanistan is hardly willing give the pass to Pakistan because establishment of this state still has Mujahideen Policy and thinking of conquer other part of region in the name of religion and besides it, both neighboring states Afghanistan and Pakistan have dispute on Durind Line, too. On other hand, some tribes of Afghanistan don’t have feasible relation with Iran and conflict is still on the base of Sunni and Shia, too.
Afghanistan knows that China enjoys relationship with Pakistan, and China has engaged in various projects operating in Pakistan, therefore it doesn’t seem for China to get free hand entry into Afghanistan. If Global Economic Power turns to America and Russia, Afghanistan would prefer to America instead of Russia.
Afghanistan is feeling like that she is walking along with India. The reason is, “India never recognized the Taliban’s assumption of Power in 1996, (Only Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates recognized the Taliban regime)” reported. Aftermath 9/11 USA and Indian ties got the strongest and India has rebuilt full diplomatic relations with Afghanistan and has provided hundreds of million of dollars aid to Afghanistan for reconstruction and development.
A Research report tells, since 2001, India has offered $1.2 billion for Afghanistan’s reconstruction, hence this state has overt as the largest donor to Afghanistan.
India is playing very significant role in the Shanghai Cooperation organization, which has been pursuing better relations with Central Asia states in energy sector, and it granted $17 million for innovation of a hydropower plant in Tajikistan, and a memorandum of understanding signed with Turkmenistan for a natural gas pipe line.
India knows Art of sustaining power, from Soft Power to Hard Power. By using Soft Power India has won heart of people in South Asia.
Afghanistan likes secular approach of India, and major tribes have enjoyed good relations with this state. Even, Afghanistan and India both have reservation for extremists bolstering point with Pakistan.
Afghan government does not have any concern from India regarding extremist groups. Though, Afghanistan wanted to build better relation with Pakistan and this neighboring state also seeks same. After attacks in Kabul and Haqqani Net Work’s involvement nag had created impediments, consequently both states distances got widened. It is not new thing, however since Dictator Musharraf’s Era; both countries did not have smooth relations.
Therefore, Afghanistan will not be allowed to anyone that can be caused of problem.
India is soft choice for Afghanistan, because Afghan government can export its goods to Indian Market and India has the largest population, this side helps out Afghan government to boost up its market in this region.
India is looking for good relations with neighboring entities in South Asia, and recently has tried smooth relation with Pakistan, it knows that trade with Afghanistan must be maintained normal relation with Pakistan, no one can grantee that how long will normal relations run between India and Pakistan? India understands about it that is why India is about to build a port in “Chabahar in Iran, which among other things could connect to the Iranian hinterland goods to Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan completely,” reported.
USA will also make strong ties with India in this region, because USA finds comfortable room with India than China, and India has had also hard position of relations with China. For America, it is not easy to get command in South Asia completely. God Father of World (America) needs another God Father of South Asia, so far India is lucky coin for USA that USA’s market will reach largest consumer in India and making best friend in South Asia, to protect its interests and would render tough position to China and Russia, too.
India has interlude time of enjoying and earning confidence of American and Afghan governments.
Afghanistan is golden route to lead from Central Asia Countries to South Asia.
In contemporary world scenario, United States and India’s friendship will make new path in South Asia, and world may see best relation between God father of world (America) and God father of South Asia, which can introduce soft borders of South Asia to world premises.
In Pakistan, Martyred Benazir Bhutto had dream of soft borders among South Asian entities and she wanted to build the power of economy, but now situations tilt in Indian favor. India has won hearts of people while using Art of Secularism in the paradigm of Soft Power.
July 2012, 6th Birthday of Bolan Voice!
Aim of publishing Bolan Voice
Journalism means to transformation of knowledge and pursuance of knowledge. With same aim, Bolan Voice before 6 years, means on July, 2006 brought its first publication in market. Magazine publication means to provide Baloch and other communities knowledge, because a vacuum of fair journalistic work was existing, Bolan Voice with this spirit incepted to fulfill this vacuum.
The critics defined journalism in different style and with dissimilar objectives, too. Journalism is the investigating and reporting of events, issues and trends to broad audience and readers. Though there are many varieties of journalism, the ideal to inform the intended readers about topic ranging from government and business organization, state business, cultural aspects, social feelings and traditions of society, socio-politics, socio-economic and other subjects of human folk and by experts of deep sense and profound persons. Simply journalists these all illustrated departments’ job of explanations in simple words for readers or journalize implicated practices of state or society.
In past, when publication and other tools were not invented by human, thence, sagacious minded were observed all affairs and practices of life deeply, as well they read state or empires situations and in court of king journalized or informed the state elites or ruling class. These sagacious people as well prescribed dealing ways and solution of all affairs would to before statesmen. Those sagacious people were unnamed journalist of that age, who with the passage of time and invention of press tools got shaped of journalists.
Apart from state elites, the sagacious minds preservers were collect defects of society and by outstanding aptitude of observation and taught people about convenience life, it was also journalism of that age. Who always were busy collecting knowledge and were seeking ways to save it for up-coming human generations. The proper field name journalism wasn’t affixed with their professionals, but they were like journalist or worker of journalism.
A critic Limpon declared journalism as transformation the message of elite class to masses. Mean a tool of ruling class for dominating on common citizen of state or prolonging hegemony on masses. But in 1920s an American philosopher Dewy said, “Journalists report event of state in great interest of masses and after process of analyzing and on a suitable time deliver to common citizen.” His mean was journalism department is as like a watch dog and make aware masses from each event as well make conscious masses about right of human equality and gain of knowledge. Our organization Bolan Voice also has faith of second nature of journalism given by Dewy.
Bolan Voice also launched with spirit to provide sense down-trodden people, especially Baloch Community make aware of their fundamental rights, transfer their living condition information to world and deliver knowledge, varying situations, modern invention of world to its fellow communities including Baloch. It works like a hub, or an institute of knowledge processing.
Bolan Voice believes, without education and information fellow people never can be developed mentally and physically. For development politics is ladder and Magazine’s main aim is to provide sense of true politics to our people. Philosopher teaches human to be made light the mind by knowledge and it is human who adopts favorable and positive after being light-minded. Magazine also believes that masses to be made conscious about politics because when got aware from true politics, they will recognize well their social, human rights. Being social animal human always can progress by subject of politics, which Aristotle declared Queen of knowledge. During spent period, the published issues of Bolan Voice are witness this claim.
Magazine team prestige is high, because they have strived to deliver Baloch message to world and world’s knowledge to Baloch. Because of splendid performance of workers today its circulation is admirable and internationally its blog visitors’ number is remarkable.
During this period of six years, Magazine staff faced various hardships. The financial difficulties are main obstacles in way of rapid up-lift, even remaining in limited resources, crew of Magazine is firm for keeping continue the journey toward betterment. Other mentionable difficulties are, intolerance toward fact, like and dislike of various groups and other several grave confusions also were faced. The narrow mindedness of this field practitioners also created great hurdles for working, because here such elements who neither want to work, nor let to do work others, are also existing. Our resolute power hasn’t abated for combating hardships and till today successfully workers have dealt these.
Readers’ involvement and encouragement isn’t ignorable, because provided feedbacks physical and mental energize to Magazine team, and workers’ moral goes up. Further Magazine policy markers has firm program to expand its circulation range to all Baloch populated areas of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan and every nook of this glob, too. In this regard team is optimist Baloch and other down-trodden and knowledge loving people will continue favoring and will applaud more our efforts. Magazine staff is intended to make Bolan Voice a cascade of knowledge for people; from where they quench thirst of wisdom.
Demand for a separate province….!
The present government has started a debate in the country about new provinces whether to make or not. It wasn’t ended at all that Pashtoon Khuwa called for a procession in Quetta at Sadiq Shaheed stadium. Accordingly, Pashtoon Khuwa Milli Awami Party (PMAP) leaders, addressing a public gathering, categorically said that they wouldn’t live with Baloch people any longer and demanded for a separate province, despite having already one Pashtoon province in country i.e. Kyber Pakthun Khuwa. They further talked of Baloch places Sibi, Bolan and Quetta, too, that these places would be the part of their South Pashtoon Khuwa. Ironically, they instead of being sympathetic to Balochs at the time of need, they rub salts on their wounds.
When Akbar Khan Bugti, former Chief Minister of Balochistan, invited Pashtoon leaders to demarcate their province, so none of them bothered to go towards Akbar Khan Bugti, then why do they vociferate for a new province, now?
Even many times, some other Baloch leaders had been agreeing to leave the Pashtoon places up to them whether they separate it or merge it in Kyber Pakthun Khuwa, but they did not seem to be ready for it, now they started chanting slogan for new province along with Baloch real places.
On the other hand, a war has been going on in Balochistan between Balochs and state since 2001, ever since many Baloch leaders, intellectuals, doctors, journalists and students in great number, have been killed systematically and brutally. Hundreds of bullet riddled bodies of Baloch youth are being thrown by establishment in desolated areas. Realistically, state’s own institutions, like judiciary and Human Rights Organizations, declared Balochistan a perturbed zone.
Sadly, Balochs’ neighbor and brother nation Pashtoon never condemned these killings, unfortunately, in it’s vice versa they want to vent their anger on them, rather assisting at the time of need.
On 25th June, 2012, quite surprisingly, Mehmood Khan Achakzai, addressing the public gathering, said, “Baloch should no more compel us for announcement of a separate province , if we are not enjoying, so we also won’t let Balochs for enjoyment. From Sibi to Chaman is Pashtoons’ land, including Bolan.”
Moreover, it is cleared to everyone that hapless Baloch people have never enjoyed, in spite of living in a mineral rich province. They have been pushed to the wall many times. If Baloch people would enjoy, certainly, their mothers and sisters would not be sitting near press clubs. The bulled riddled bodies of Baloch people would not be found on daily basis, too. Truly, Balochs’ economy has been affected completely, too by state forces operations. But, Mr. Achakzai calls these all enjoyments!
Mehmood Khan Achakzai is mourning for trucks of Pashtoon people robbed in Baloch areas, not over the massacre of Baloch people. Accordingly, many trucks of Pashtoons have been robbed in Sindh, Punjab and even in his hometown i.e. Chaman, but he is tacit regarding these places.
BNP (Mengal) leader Akhter Mengal in reaction of Pashtoon Khuwa demand said that Mehmood Khan Achakzai is head of PONM (Pakistan’s Oppressed Nation’s Movement) but, unfortunately, this time he strayed from main agenda and working on someone else’s agenda. He further said Pashtoons should have consoled their oppressed Baloch brothers.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai gave the reference of British gazette at the public gathering, so he should remember that Baloch areas and history is thousands years old.
Approximately 40, 0000 Afghan refugees have been accommodated in Balochistan so far; they have been given places by Baloch people when they were homeless after immigration. The Pashtoons are accommodated in Baloch district Chaghi: Girdi Jungle, Zahoor colony, Posti, Brabcha and also in adjacent areas of Chagai. In Nushki: Qadir Abad, Faqeeran and Inaam Boisthan. So, Baloch people how can defraud Pashtoons?
The question stirs in minds of all Pashtoon Khuwa people, that the real issue is Durand Line and prominent Pashtoon nationalist Abdul Ghaffar Khan did not confess it, and as a testament his bodies to be buried in Afghanistan because he did want to distinguish Afghanistan’s Afghans and Pakistan’s Afghans. Well, on the other hand, Pashhtoon Khuwa totally negates Durand Line issue because the lease of hundred years got expired in 1993.
In fact, Pashtoon Khuwa’s people are enjoying state’s incentives and jobs on behalf of Balochs, will lose all if continued the same attitude. They are occupying all administrative posts, also enjoying mostly educational seats. So, it is better to live like a neighbor as a Chinese maxim “From far living relative, living in neighbor stranger is better”. So, be like a good neighbor, otherwise, the fraternity between Balochs and Pashtoons will be stiff to exist.
Pakistani Media! Lords of Journalism..!
Freedom of expression is right for everyone, this reciprocated slogan becomes tradition of world of writing and Journalism. People get right to express their thoughts and live according to their own beliefs. If freedom of expression gets sanction then growth of mind would be dead. It is necessary for each society how do they lead freedom of expression?
Freedom is responsibility, it is hard job; especially in case of Journalism because through writings we feed in mind of society. We can build and un-build opinions, this is Journalism how will they inform the society?
Unfortunately, Journalism is going to become Capitalist-Journalism (Cap-Journalism) where day by day deliberately or un-deliberately we are following foot-steps of powerful class that wants own interests and now powerful class has gotten tool of Journalism. Somehow, Journalism is being brought by richest class. It was unfeasible, unless Journalism is forcibly converted into glamour – media.
When Journalism has forwarded its step on TV Journalism, after that things become change and seeing TV Journalism’s remote control is being controlled by hidden-powerful hands. Those can issue NOC (Non-Objection Certificate) for issues what should not / be broadcast, no doubt TV Journalism, in some context, plays positive role but those Channels which are powerful and accountably in court of public and world of Media Ethics.
Those are thought, they are not accountable and have license to insult everyone then it is not type of TV-Journalism.
In Pakistan, TV-Journalism is juvenile; sadly to write that don’t have information regarding Pakistan’s sensitive issues as like provincial issues. If anyone takes issues without understanding of historical background, then problem would be raised.
Talk-Show TV seems monkeys – shows, where all just throw its blame on each others. How is it possible that immature talks could be delivered healthy perspective among public?
As we have been seeing that electronic media is become biased, instead of taking issues in the light of journalism; these are verified and being taken NOC.
No doubt, our state is controlled state and our journalism whether in print or electronic media are being controlled by real power makers of Pakistan, those are sacred and unquestionable.
But Print-Journalism has held media ethics and spirit of journalism. In case of electronic media, is totally part of glamour kit, and when voice of journalism walks like cat-walk after than we can not be hopeful that issues would be discussed as those should be.
We can understand that TV-Journalism has its own problem and has question for its live on, that reason they need numbers of advertisements and ranting-scores, which channel is more popular and not?
By such attitude, you can not imagine for real voice of journalism. Recently, in Pakistan has season of GATES, after five seasons, now it has increased to six season of GATES, mean Corruption, so far people of Pakistan have seen from Mehran-Gate, NRO-Gate to Media-Gate. People did not get shocked, only passed remarks that ohhh….You too, Brutus?”
Electronic Media – anchors were started blames on themselves and some anchors tried to explain that it is not like that story, in fact, the real soul of story was this and that.
The matter is not, why have they done like that? Question raises, how are we holding our responsibilities? When electronic media takes charges it’s on-air; it is obviously they are charging, not only on-air timings, but script also that how would talk?
Things are being glamorized and controlled also seriousness in journalism seems less important. Being a journalist must/should be realized significance of problems, but if electronic media thinks regarding gigantic power-makers that what and how will they react? Second hand, Journalism is unsafe, here bullet is cheapest than life. So, fears of gigantic power-makers and threats to life, has given self-censorships; unless state passes order for censorships, Employee of journalism imposes self-censorships.
And if we see behind the picture, we can be seen, lords of Journalism, those are unquestionable, you cannot ask them questions. They have right to speak and throwing blaming words and by these attitudes, they think, they are only loyal; Lords of Journalism, be able to do anything.
They are worried towards solving problems and have authority to protect sovereignty of Pakistan; it seems they are journalists along with arm-forced to walk on borders?
Pakistan’s journalism is divided into two parts one is regional level and second is National (Urdu-Media) and national electronic media has rare interests towards regional level, because of this attitude other provinces people don’t relate themselves with national media.
We believe, Journalist is only a person who calls Wake-Up (Jagetay Raho) to public, regarding coming into problems, they must give their opinions and deliver issues whether are related at capital level or small city of Balochistan, all news must be equally treated, if news are not equally treated and get discrimination then problem will be arisen.
Discrimination always brings itself horror result and we are seeing discriminated wave in journalism, that is reason immature attitude is caused of problems and Journalism has received Media – Gate.
This time peacefully and peep into our inner that are we Journalists or Lords of Journalism? How do we do justice with Journalism? Don’t make Journalism as Glamour Journalism, let it remain as Journalism.
Journalism is only tool that is; can make minds of society when maker of society shows its irresponsibility, then how and where can lead society?
At least, should not harm slogan of freedom of expression. This is not only slogan, in fact, real soul of truest path of world through ink of Pen.
Islamabad Points Vs Balochistan Point!
Everyone wants solution of Balochistan, Balochistan is burning and those who are in Balochistan they know well about their hell lives. Those, who are outsiders, can sympathetically talk for and on Balochistan. All politicians from President Asif Zardari to opposition Leaders are apologetic on Balochistan except establishment. Fair enough, Baloch did not and don’t ask for apologizes. What do Baloch want; this is issue in current scenario.
We can understand that power makers have tradition that they don’t like to learn from their mistakes but public has consciousness and learn from their own mistakes. Today Balochistan has made own points, whilst writing Editorial we are to aware that some people don’t like this one but we covet to humble request that unless understanding of people’s heart beating, none be able to solve problems.
Pakistan’s history is filled up with mistakes that problem is with someone and it is being solved by stranger.
In media, especially Electronic Media talks and holds programs with oldest script and same cries on Balochistan. What does Balochistan want for? No one has cared about Baloch while sitting in Cool Rooms, are giving solution of Balochistan without asking from Baloch public that what are they thinking of and about? For now should Baloch follow them because those want the solution of problems and if we say to them that we have reservation with your Recommended Solution Menu then they would point out us as Traitor and Unchangeable?
Problem can’t be solved until real injured person come him/herself on the table of talks. On May 26th, 2012 Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan (SCBAP) called conference on Balochistan in Islamabad where elite Politicians, elite Human Rights Organizations and Elite Intellectual were invited. What a joke? All richer would be talked about poorer same as Elite Class of Pakistan, had shown their concerns for Baloch innocent people. In Conference 15 points issues and Elite class is thinking that by their 15 points, Balochistan will be appeased. So must be read 15 points by Islamabad conference: “Civilian Authority representation, Akbar Bugti’s killing Case, Provincial Autonomy and Problems sold through negotiation, implementation of 18th amendment and to ensure all natural resources in Balochistan under the control of the people of the area, All those citizens of Pakistan are settled in Balochistan, be equally respected and their social and economic rights be protected, To respect the economic, and cultural rights of all those living in Pakistan and in particular of the Baloch nation, The Supreme Court of Pakistan be commended for taking up the case of missing people and disappearances should be brought to justice, An inter-parliamentary committee be prepared a White Paper on the human right violation from Musharraf regime to the present day and discussed in the parliament, All political prisoners and missing persons be realized, appropriate compensation be paid to all who have lost their lives, All religious leaders of different sects to create culture of tolerance, Training programs be given to the FC and the police for respecting human rights and warned not to act illegally, Army to be called to back to cantonment, To promote democratic culture and consideration for another Charter of Democracy, forthcoming elections be held in a fair, free and transparent manner.”
After Conference Prime Minister Yousif Raza Gillani talked with General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kiyani, both agreed on solution of Balochistan and shown wish to talk with Leader of Balochistan Khair Bukhsh Marri.
What does real Baloch think about Islamabad Points?
We would ask to all of them, why suddenly call conferences and meetings on Balochistan? Two points are raising, one is, Election season is on the door and opposition and ruling parties are playing its term cards game for trying to get attention of Balochistan and secondly, after NATO crisis, Pakistan’s establishment has feared for Balochistan, if Balochistan completely would slip from their hands; therefore by such steps give kind picture to Balochistan. Though Balochistan is still in undeclared war and people are receiving dead bodies, but none talks on it, all are playing points game.
Is Balochistan comfortable with Islamabad Points? Truly, even Baloch child is not comfortable with it. 15 Points all about forthcoming election and how did they think that Baloch would be agreed on compensation? Baloch never gets money on his/her beloved’s murder. White paper must be prepared from day when Balochistan forcibly attached to Pakistan.
We think, Elite Class of Politics must remember 6 points of Shaikh Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, six points were itself presenting one point of Independency. If anyone wants points from Baloch, so they have as points as Shaikh Mujeeb-ur-Rehman had. Former Dictator Musharraf was saying, it is not 70s Era but when Islamabad gave Points, did he remember 70s Era of East Pakistan and its 6 Points, now Era is coming back with new veil but victimize side Balochistan has own points those are surely Islamabad Points Vs Balochistan Point.
No one wants bloody mornings and nights, moreover peace must be ensured therefore this time Islamabad ought to consider Balochistan point instead of throwing points through Elite Uncles Politicians.
If Balchistan re-gives six points of East Pakistan, would Islamabad accept it?
Balochistan has long injured and fake promises history, how is possible that Balochistan comes on Islamabad’s recommended Points? At least, this time Balochistan will not step down at others swears or points, this time Balochistan has own points and now it is choice of Power Makers of Islamabad, whether they would listen to Balochistan point or not?
JUI Penetration in Baloch areas
Jmaiat Ulema Islam (Fazal Rehman) group observed a conference “Islam Zinda Abad” on 27th May, 2012, in Kalat. These questions are significant, why for conference, venue of Kalat was chosen? Why not Quetta which is capital of province and center of all areas people with accessible to all? Why not a Pashtoon populated area of Balochistan, even communal resemblance and deep adherence with religion? This conference venue selection has a political perspective.
In Kalat, during conference of Jamiat leaders said, “They can’t accept the movements of secessionists, like Independent Balochistan, Sindhu Desh and Pashtoonistan”. The Pashtoonistan movement isn’t visible anywhere but this party leaders spoke as precautionary, because state machinery is descending to corrode, hence it is possible in future any such movement to animate.
Here it is pertinent to be discussed that said party supported liberation of Taliban. Means, if anyone wants liberation from Pakistan isn’t accepted but else from this all liberation movements are fair and righteous in front of this party.
In their speeches, leaders of Jamiat affirmed, in this country Baloch mostly but other citizens commonly faced injustices by establishment but even they oppose oppressed masses’ movements. Here it feels, state authorities’ misdeeds are over-valued on people lives or rights before this party.
They invited Baloch Insurgents to join in their party, and then all disputes will be solved. Problems would be solved but haven’t mentioned any mechanism or course, possible they lack these. It is fact that ever Jamiat remained in government, whether dictator or politician ruling eras. But they never could stop the hand of oppressors’ tyrannies on Balochs, but it is beyond understanding, after inclusion of insurgents in their party how will resolve all contentions as like they have any wizard, they use it Antar Mantar and resolved, or they exorcise the problems, as well they are Mullah and finish all calamity by single puff “Shufff” and finished. They confessed, injustice and tyrannies on Baloch, but they showed disability to stop this series, opposite to this if suppressed people even produce buzz, their party isn’t ready to tolerate it.
This party if bother to answer that during 65 years, they ever remained part of ruling group whether army or politician, but couldn’t solve problem of masses including Balochs, hence now how they can do it after joining Baloch political youth?
Fact is this that all federal parties have failed to attract Baloch Political Youth, but Jamiat and other religious parties are being used to penetrate in Baloch areas. Be remembered few days back “Difa” twice roamed Quetta and it is understood they don’t have any support and familiarity in Baloch areas, but Jamait have some people who belong to Baloch community and terrain. In pretext of these Baloch religious elements intended to penetrate effected areas and to cool-down the Baloch Issue, which has arisen on high altitudes, on local and international levels of its history.
It is implicit that Baloch endured enough and learnt much from hardships. Baloch Political Youth is well aware of this tactic and tool that Jamait is being used as ladder to penetrate in Balochs areas, that’s why they are conducting their functions in Baloch belt.
Rinkal Kumari who wanted dew of justice…!
Law, constitution and International Human Rights Charter all are saying “In the Eyes of Justice, all are equal, no difference of race, nation and religion.” And people have faith that if there is no justice in the court of power-makers then queen of justice has big heart and she will listen our case of injustice because Injustice that would be caused of entire pain and inequality on the earth.
Poor people always have hopes from Iron Walls and foggy roads, they are unable to realize that Queen of Justice would listen whatever she is forced to hear by power-makers in the world. If we are not wrong, what had happened on 18 April 2012, on case of Rinkle Kumari as we had already written in our pervious Editorial that “Mr. Jinnah! Rinkel Kumari is not free to go her home either” when poor eyes of parents and people were awaiting decision while holding their heart beatings and sudden Chief of Justice Mr. Iftekhar Ahmed Choudhary crossed his all attitude of decision-making, he announced that Rinkle Kumari, Lata Kumari and Asha Kumari must go to registrar and submitted their willingness, where would they want to go and besides he continued local courts decisions. While hearing case in open court, Mr. CJ sent them to registrar, was this case of missing of goat or broken glass? Of course, this case was/is very sensitive and has involvement of religion and thugs got indirectly license for kidnapping in the name of Islam and put label of forcibly conversion into Islam, over head of innocent girls than none can ask you that why have you committed crime? As Mr. CJ and government of Pakistan ruling Party People’s Party of Pakistan and its allies were silent as their existence isn’t in this country.
We can understand well if religion comes in issues, issues become Holy instead of issues must be remained as issues though Rinkle’s case among two girls cases, was very fragile because her case came up at international level and she herself loudly admitted on 26 March 2012, at supreme court that she wanted to go with her mother and she would prefer to die, instead of accepting another religion, she said. Eyes of world saw, when she was forcibly sent to Naveed Shah under the command of Mian Mitho, who is main character of this entire story of kidnapping.
“On 18 April, 2012, Rinkle had revealed bitter truth that after 26 March 2012, she was tortured and raped, not only this but Naveed Shah was coming to me at Darul-Amaan, Now they have given me threats, if I go along with my mother, they will kill my whole family; what would you do? You are unable to save me, Nor at Mirpur Mathilo, Sindh High Court, Neither at Supreme Court.”
Wasn’t this Supreme Court contempt? Didn’t CJ know about it? Why he sent such sensitive case to registrar? Why hadn’t given safety wall to Rinkle and her parents? Why wasn’t asked to Mian Mitho that what’s his relation with Navid Shah? And what was Rinkle doing in House of Mian Mitho?
Chief Justice didn’t ask single question to Mian Mitho and Naveeda Shah as both weren’t involved. At other side of case, where CJ and government were closed their eyes, zip its lips and put cotton in ears, there Human Rights organizations were silent, as they have gone on tour and unaware regarding case. According to Rinkle Kumari’s Uncle reported, he tried to catch up with HRCP ( Human Rights Commission of Pakistan), sadly, they did not respond though they didn’t even pick up our calls, I had been knocking doors in Islamabad but nowhere got response.
Those who know well nature of Human Rights Organizations, mostly run on contract-based when see no interest of money-making, none be able to up voice. We have example of Mukhtiara Mai, whose case came on international level and many organizations got projects in the name of women’s empowerment, but same organizations are silent on Dr. Shazia Khalid and Rinkle’s Case, WHY?
After 18th April, 2012, worst decision, Rinkle has been in the custody of Mian Mitho, instead she should be gone with Naveed Shah. Supreme Court ordered that after 15 days must be reported for Rinkle Kumari’s condition. Where is Queen of Justice? When reports came that Rinkle has lost her legs and one arm while torturing by them (Mian Mitho’s men).
How long will injustice and wrong steps be done in the name of religion? If law and justice closed its eyes on injustice than injustice would become vulture and finally one day it will swallow whole society.
This is not only Rinkle who first kidnapped, second sent Darul-Umaan and finally forcibly sent with Naveed Shah, in fact, it was justice that was moving here and there and in last put into box of injustice.
At least one thing has been proved that still Big Cats look at small Cats and Big Cats are powerful, so how can we have faith in justice that “All are equal in the eyes of Justice” No and Never all are not equal.
Innocent girl Rinkle Kumari was crying and wanted dew of justice but what she received whole picture is in front of us.
We can understand that State Court is unable to make decision freely but questions need answers and Court of Justice is asking, how did you handle this case?
Multiple inject into Balochistan for curing Baloch Issue
In previous days, it has been observed that various ideologies’ or creeds’ followers have been brought into Balochistan to extinguish the burning situation of Baloch Issue and several method are being used to hush-up the culminated movement of Baloch Nationalists due to internal turmoil and externally in entire world, because of Balochs living in abroad, political strive roused enough Baloch issue on different forums internationally.
Be remembered that on initial stage, when resisting organizations were claiming for their activities, the authorities didn’t accede at all to confess their existence on earth then. But with the passage of time, they gave different names to these people, and now-a-days they are being called “estranged Balochs”, which at least indicates this that state authorities became ready to confess existence of these on this soil Balochistan.
At a time, state authorities said “Baloch secessionists are handful and their main stem have cut-off, now the branches, twigs and leafs will dry or vanish by itself”. It was time of Akbar Khan Bugti martyrdom, and then authorities were daunted and did not seem agree for negotiation or diplomacy except crush-down movement by power. This mechanism also seems failed to get desired results, because after passing ten years, movement is animated, even intellectual are saying it got popularized internationally and gained much potential and systemized than before. Yes, it is true, state targeted top leadership but paradoxically or as probability workers are adherent with ideology or thoughts, which don’t let to fade-away totally. It is perceptible that if thoughts or ideology is alive, then workers or soldiers consequentially join or born. State authorities might have realized this reality, too.
Now various tools or injections are being stung into Balochistan to cure the disease of separation. Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Chairman Mr. Imran Khan came to Quetta and during his speech declared righteous to Balochs and meantime in single breath, he invited them to come to him, because he wants to liberate entire Pakistan not only Balochistan. But he knows better that thousands have embraced martyrdom and thousands are missing by whom?
If Imran Khan has capability and seriousness, he should do his side work, and then invite Baloch. If he himself is being controlled as remote controller, then he mustn’t make hollow boasts.
Religious elements formed alliances like “Defa-e-Pakistan” and “Defa-e-Islam”. Their alliance leaders, twice in month, visited Balochistan. Before from this, they were not familiar with the way to Quetta. On 26th April, 2012, this alliance has been brought Quetta and conducted conference in Sadiq Shaheed stadium in protection of administration in outstanding way, their participants strength was high or not but it is true, their vehicles strength was enough high. Might they hire vehicles from unknown group wealth!
Apparently, religious elements came to Quetta to deliver messages to America, but everyone knows that most of NATO supplying vehicles goes via Khyber Pakhtoonkhuwa province. Hence, it is rational that they must have conducted procession in Peshawer instead of Quetta.
Discussed “Defa” leaders announced for jihad, but against whom? Baloch secessionists or another object! But Baloch are already Muslim and living on their historical land, which religion also allows. It is also understood that Muslims live without borders of Pakistan or any other state, hence political, cultural and historical thing can’t be knotted with religion. It is natural fact that Islam can’t be confined in a single state borders. Religion is sacred matter and Baloch is already practicing it in a good manner. Here “Defa” leaders’, this attitude, is pesting that Baloch have been from disasters and delimmas but these Islamic brethren didn’t come, but now are taking much interst in Baloch and Balochistan and they are using revered religion?
If “Defa” leaders inform masses that what is War on Terror? by whom is it being fought? and against whom it is being fought? If these questions be answered in true ways, then they identify themselves and masses will also know them. These inscribed slogans on walls of Sariab Road are totally against their entity and aim.
Some intellectuals speculated these Jihadis are being brought by their masters, who used these in Afghanistan. Today these Jihadis are making noise against America but they turn their face toward yesterday, they were best allies of America. They were involved in massacre of innocent Afghan Muslims and in Bengal three million people murdered by such parties. Afghan and Bengalis were not infidels.
Now, they came to Quetta to scare Baloch political youth, who are also Muslims. If these Jihadis are eager to fight with America, so they fight with their rulers, who are best ally of America. But it is clear that America isn’t sitting on Baloch land. Yes, American consulate, offices and officials are staying in Islamabad and Punjab.
Baloch politicians are saying this that Balochistan is being injected in various colors and it is true. Baloch masses also can understand old usage of this tool.
Baloch youth must be attentive about this aspect because intention and strategy is indicating another injection into Balochistan apart from Imran Khan and other political colors, which are being used to cure the disease of Baloch secessionists.
Some senior intellectuals have foretold that these controlled Jihadis are being directed to Balochistan and assigned task them make Balochistan next Sawat and behind disorder do the intended works. Here Balochistan all political parties and international world also envisage nearer future turmoil in Balochsitan. International organizations and Balochistan political thinkers should take precautionary measures, too.
Mr. Jinnah! Rinkal Kumari is not free to go her home either?
“You are free to go to your temples; you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the State,” said Founder of Pakistan Mohammad Ali Jinnah on 11th August, 1947, while his entire movement ran in the name of religion, but later he spoke for secular state in his speech, how was possible that his spoke words 1,695 on 11th August, 1947, would be built secular state and vanished his religious movement easily? He had a misunderstanding and could not be made understand that his religious color in politics had caused the catastrophe.
And we saw and see that how undemocratic hands have been using Name of Religion and then is violated rights of people. Indigenous people of this land later forcibly put into box of Minority, hence they have to submit their certificate for loyalty, how can they free to go to their temples? Although they are not safe at their homes, too, if Mr. Jinnah were alive, he would not be able to see such violation in his state that was created under the discrimination.
So far, non-Muslims have been facing dreadful problems; they are very much connected with their land and are unable to leave it at any risk.
InPakistan, Ahmadis, Christians and Hindus are being treated like animals cart. Recent years Ahmadis and Cristians have faced more violation inPunjab, especially Ahmadis are under black Clouds, where they are unable to greet with another Muslim.
Sindh and Balochistan, both provinces have less religious violation but in coming days native Hindus are threatened and unsaved in Sindh and Balochistan, mostly Hindus prefer to leave Pakistan because they are feeling that their voice is un-listened, where other people voice is listened but they are being ignored, not even at government level but civil society (Human rights Organization) and champion of freedom of expression in Media have given less importance.
In Sindh, on 18th November, 2011, Chak incident happened and three Hindus doctors were gunned down, their killers are freed and nowhere voice for Hindus by the time many families left Sindh and Balochistan, reason is simple that they are threatened by extremists groups.
Sadly! In Sindh, many girls have been kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam, according to report that around 47 girls have been kidnapped and by forced converted to Islam, Question raises, why only GIRL has been converted to Islam, why not old lady, man and boy? Why only beautiful girls?
On 24th February, 2012, a young Hindu girl named Rinkel Kumari, 19 years old, was abducted from her home in a small village in Sindh. This kidnapping case is arisen by her family and her family is received threats because in this case thugs and a boy who claimed to be married with Rinkel, has assisted by Pakistan Peoples’ Party Member of the National Assembly (PPP MNA) Mian Mitho, for whom Benazir Bhutto once Thanked him, when he betrayed and left PPP.
Rinkel Kumari produced before Sindh High Court, where she expressed, “her wish is to go with her Mother”, but Sindh High Court sent her Darul-Amaan, Shelter house for women, till 26th March, 2012, hearing at High Court where “Rinkel Kumari bravely expressed once again, her wish is to go with her mother, and loudly said that I know, there is no justice for me as Hindu, you can not imagine living in one night in Shelter house, kill me but do not send back to shelter house.”
Chief Justice whose Sue Motus are popular, even Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Gillani is helpless in front of his Sue motus, but strangely why Chief Justice sent back her to shelter house and extended case on 18 April 2012. Chief Justice said, “this case is complicated because girl has been converted to Islam.”
What a remark by Chief Justice! Even common people have idea that kidnapping is crime, and by force you can not apply any thing, then why Chief Justice sent her to shelter house and has not bit taken action against kidnappers? Rinkel Kumari’s life is unsaved because extremists’ parties declared that if she denied coming back to kidnapper (who claimed her as husband Naveed Shah), she would be killed.
In such circumstances, where she and her family all are at gun point, why case has been extended? This is not only one case even 47 girls are still kidnapped instead of Chief Justice Iftkhar Ahmed Chodhoury should have given quick justice and taken action on other kidnapped, but did nothing to do it.
Isn’t Rinkel Kumari daughter ofPakistan? She is being treated like guilty and ignored by human rights voices moreover, Mr. Jinnah spoke on 11th August 1947 for non Muslims but here single innocent girl is not allowed to go her home.
Mr. Jinnah! Rinkel Kumari is not free to go her home either.
What would she get in her cradle on 18th April, 2012; we all are waiting for justice.
They don’t give us funds: Chief Minister Aslm Raisani
Few days back Chief Minister Balochistan Aslam Raisani in his statement had invited Baloch Separatists for negotiation. CM offered if they budge from their stance of freedom, then he will go to them whether call him in bottom of ocean or atpeakofHimalaya’s mountains.
On next day, from discussed statement in another statement, Chief Minister Aslam Raisani said, “Federal government have handed over several departments to provincial government in series of constitutional amendment, but they are not providing funds for these departments functioning. If they don’t provide funds, then they should take to these back from provincial government, because province doesn’t have much funds to run these.”
Chief Minister Aslam Raisani mentioned reservations that they spent much energy for functionalization ofGwadarPort.A package “Aghaz-e-Haqooq” has been given to Balochistan for redressing of the sense of deprivation of the Balochistan’s people. A content of this package is, ‘the ships containing fertilizer must be anchored at Gwadar Deep Sea Port, and from there to be unloaded and further supplied countrywide through Balochistan’s transporters vehicles, because local people in majority be beneficiaries of this project’. But now the ships carrying fertilizer are anchoring atKarachiPortand Port Qasim instead of Gwadar.
Mr. Raisani’s statements are validating stance of Baloch Secessionists. But even he says Baloch Secessionist come-down from mountains. They have gone to there and paying sacrifices of lives after testing of all methods and tools. CM Aslam Raisani should review of his position instead of giving suggestions to Baloch Insurgents.
During this Interior Minister Mr. Rehman Malik had visited Balochistan town Dera Allahyar for inauguration of Passport office for that area inhabitants. In his address to people Mr. Rehman Malik calling the name of Bugti insurgents’ commander, said, “they should comeback from Kandhar training camp, and they will be given jobs and other incentives.”
Here one thing must be conceived to Balochs and Mr. Aslam Raisani, too that Federal Minister to whom offering himself, and why not giving to those who are working with him. The discussed Federal Minister is offering to those who are fighting, and denying to those who are not fighting but working with his government, even made announcement of constitutional amendment and packages.
The conclusion of this argument is like this, if Chief Minister Aslam Raisani needs funds and jobs, so in this way he is working can’t get. He should work like those peoples, to whom Mr. Malik is offering himself. Then he will able to meet financial requirements and giving jobs to his province and constituency peoples.
The statements of Chief Minister Balochistan and Federal Interior Minister Mr. Rehman Malik are evident that Baloch Insurgents’ existence and manner which they are working are valid and true for gaining of due rights and status, otherwise for long time Baloch were ignored and were underestimated about all.
Balochistan is not Banana..!
What should be solution for Balochistan? Question has been running here and there, no one is ready to solve it with ground realities. Balochistan has right to use its own Right as other nations did and do. Why some people have problems and try to reject Right of Balochistan?
Nations’ problem must be solved in the light of history thus Balochistan’s history is bitter and has river of blood and bridge of broken promises since long time.
It is hardly to understand by common people who have no consciousness of history that how to solve problem of Nations?
In era of British, Muslim league roused slogan for separate states of Muslims majority later states converted into State by Mr. Jinnah. What was reason that Muslim league demanded for separate states? Not only this, in present era why Pakistan establishment is supporting Kashmiris?
Today when Balochistan is asking for its rights, why it counts in Traitor? While writing editorial and asking such question, we may be declared traitor and anti-state?
Let us ask questions those are not only from us but these are from everyone of common Baloch citizen that if we want to sit in chair or table what is big deal, why other non-Baloch try to oppose our rights.
How could they forget when same right was used by their founder of Pakistan?
Another question, Pakistan Establishment tells old tale All Muslims is Brother and Pakistan made for Islam therefore, must bind them in the chain of Pakistan. So, why not bind also Iran, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and call all over Muslims from the world that they are compelled to live in Pakistan?
We understand it is not possible and silly question, reason is Nations have own roots with land. Slogan of Islam was political trick in the wave of religion in era of British ruling but slogan’s legacy is continued by establishment for maintaining its power, by this victimization of nations to be cried. If we are wrong, what happened to Bengal province that became Bangladesh in 70s?
Balochistan is burning and none would be dissented on this fact. Human rights violation has not fully stopped, it is increasing day by day.
Human Rights Commission and organizations are writing and saying that violation of human rights must be stopped. Missing persons around 4356 and many of them have been killed, if United State congress Dana Rohrabacher is supporting Balochistan’s voice on the bases of human rights, then Ambassador Ms. Sherry Rehman said, United State should not support terrorist.
We ask Ms. Sherry Rehman, would she call terrorist that mother who is standing picture of her child and asking for his/her recovery? Sherry Rehman said, USA has no right to involve internal matter of Pakistan. Why does Pakistan seek support of USA on the issue of Kashmir? If raise voice against violation of human rights, to be counted in line of terrorism so all international platforms must be vanished, will Ms. Sherry Rehman tell us how did she call terrorist word for Baloch? She is an ambassador and should have known well art of ambassador-ism, what is importance of words and language?
Would remind Ms. Sherry, that Table talks cannot be won under the abused and blames. We believe she ought to think on it because words have supreme power at international affairs if know how to use power of words.
On 8 March 2012 Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered, “ Jirga should be held for resolving the province’s issues and also asked the authorities concerned to consult Khair Bakhsh Marri, Attaullah Mengal and others tribal leaders for holding the jirga.”
Is he same Chief Justice who opposed strongly system of Jirga and by now asking for Jirga on Balochistan? It shows Courts system in Pakistan has no impact that Chief justice himself asked for Jirga. Where courts to be failed find out solution, how can Jirga? Balochistan is not living in the stage of stone where Baloch might agree for Jirga. Now Balochistan’s political consciousness has developed than ever.
How will long deny indigenous people rights? Let them right of their own will where they want to go and stay? Do not make mistake of 1948 when forcibly jointed Balochistan with Pakistan.
Balochistan! Is not banana that each can come and pick up or eat. If anyone, is serious and honestly want to be seen solution of Balochistan than must be seen pain of land.
Misdiagnose of Baloch Issue
Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik has announced that exiled Baloch leaders’ cases will be withdrawn and they would be received with honor by him personally, if they suspend self banishment. He also invited them to participate in Pakistani politics and would be given incentives and jobs etcetera.
A hearing of congressional sub-committee for human rights held, and Balochistan Issue discussed. Authorities expressed concerns over human rights violations in this region. As well demanded from government of Pakistan for stoppage of further ongoing abuses series in Balochistan, self-determination topic also had been discussed. Through this Balochistan Issue has projected worldwide. After this religious elements got serious about Baloch Issue.
The religious parties made announcement of Jihad in case of American intervention in Balochistan, but their this act implies that as if ongoing atrocities on Baloch considered valid by these elements, because they are letting do these activities and never posture reaction or expressed Jihadi sentiments on Baloch mutilated and worst tortured bodies.
The authorities dealing Baloch issue in such way and offering exiled leaders for pardon that common Balochs are bound of these leaders. Never, now the situation is totally against this assumption. Yes, it is true that Baloch youth has kudos for their elders and respected leaders, but it must be conceived that Baloch political workers are conscious; they have joined hands with leaders on a solid stance. If these Baloch leaders retreat from his stance then youth wouldn’t be following them, as well, they would be rejected from status of leadership. But it is understood that Baloch leaders never do as against of common Balochs desires.
Here in societies, political parties and political tradition have evolved with such theories, thoughts that they totally got failed to serve masses, because these were not on justified or human equality basis, but were followed doctrine of personal necessities. Here Pakistani politicians with adjustment, by establishment, come on positions of state and party ranks. Hence, their approach is similar about Baloch youth, who have power of ideology as contrary to Pakistani politicians or their representatives Sardars in Balochistan. The leaders and workers on ground of ideology are under the responsibilities. If any worker or leader violates ideological norms, then worker doesn’t remain part of movement and if leader doesn’t maintain discipline then he wouldn’t be considered leader. Both have joined each other hands on the base of ideology or National Question.
Up till now the state leaders, including Rehman Malik haven’t become able to understand issue of Baloch, then how can they solve it? It is too late that offering incentives and jobs because every one knows better that wealth and jobs can’t be alternative of lives. Here many have lost lives which can’t be regained, but for what they accepted lives that cause is only alternative of these sacrifices.
Follow blindly, without questioning!
World claims that we are advanced and civilized have been achieving lots things. Today we would like to ask to civilized people of advanced world that what is meant by civilized world, if we are not at mistaken civilized means where people live equally and enjoy right of their rights. Where would people be recognized on their abilities, nowhere existence of injustice.
You are allowed to express your views without any harsh orders and labels that you can and not speak, we would write whatever we see. If civilized world is like this, then we would say that this is heaven in life. These are all bookish sayings as our grandmother says.
Ground realities are different, you write or say, and to be received orders that all are outlaw, like one person stand at main stop of market, loudly says what I say, believe on it, what I do, follow on it; if you go on against it you will be declared criminal.
By mistaken poor people goes and reminds him, Dear honorable louder speaker man, we are not going to against you, we have as spoken as rich men’s speak, he would be replied you that they rich men have our Non-Objection-Certificate NOC they can speak, not you a traitor. But I have asked only one question, why have you even asked?
This happens when we are being dreamt for advanced world, reality is changed than dream. We do not understand what should write or not? If we say A … it would be count in outlaw. This time we are not written any issue but going to evoke nursery class where children are obtained to follow teacher whether teacher right or wrong, who cares?
Our Editorial becomes nursery class because we are not allowed to say if we speak; it would count A … B … C… etc.
A for Ban, B Afflict for, C for Deaf, D Censorship for, E for Feudal lords, F for Evict, G for Heartless, H for Guillotine, I for Jangle (not Journalism), J for Idiot, K for Lie , L for Khaki, M Nonsense for, N for Major, O for Powerless, P for Opium, Q for Risky, R for Qualm, S for Trustless, T for Salute, U for Vacuum, V for Under-law, W for X-ray, X for Weld, Y for Zoo, and Z for Yoke.
This is under the law, never think of that it is outlaw or mixture whatever has been written or taught it is law and correct.
We do not speak single word, if speak, would get order that you do speak. Therefore, for now this is what have written on page follow and think about it. If you call this advanced world, where truth becomes outlaw and justice turns into injustice and NOCs to be declared for richest then would prefer to live in poor cave.
Balochistan was the most peaceful part of the country some years ago, people lived a sociable life, especially the children, belonging to different communities, would play in streets together, but today situation has entirely changed, it is in the clutches of chaos where innocent people are being victimized like sacrificial animals.
Every day, in Balochistan, situation is substantially worsening. People are not secured, they are abducted for ransom, killed, disappeared and their mutilated bodies are being thrown on garbage dump or in desolated areas.
The relative of ‘missing’ persons have been vociferating for their loved ones at every corner of the country, but they are not paid heed by the leaders, government, Human Rights Organization and Human Rights Watch. That is the reason their relatives receive decomposed bodies, not them alive. They are in trouble what that to do what?
The chief of PML-N Mian Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan’s compassion with Balochs are appreciatable, but they need to take pragmatic steps to remove the sense of deprivation of the Baloch people, who are facing fifth military operation in the province. They had better stop this military operation in the province because it is going to alienate them more and more from Islamabad.
Apex court ordered the intelligence chiefs to submit reports about the ‘missing’ Baloch persons, is a good step, because Balochs are downtrodden, can be soothed by releasing their loved ones who are missing for years together as well as call a half to the military operation. It is only the way of removing their indignation from the federal govt.
If they want to understand Balochistan, then they should follow, whatever is mentioned above, otherwise, situation will go out of their hands, will reach to the point of no return and problems would be compounded more and more, too.
If the following preventive measures are adopted, then the situation may come to its normal state.
For restoring the peace the military operation should be halted.
The government should chalk out a strategy to bring all stranded and disgruntled youth on one platform.
Respected World! We are Journalists…!
We are told and retold since decades “Journalists without borders, Journalists responsible for seek truth. We agree and do not have any doubts with anyone. Very nice to read and hear about journalism that on earth journalists have power and eager to search truth. We journalists are equal and belong to one Qabila means family. If one journalist gets bit hit, all over the world journalist would stand by that journalist.
Journalists are united and power maker none of can harms to journalists. Let them know we belong with one family and our culture and tradition is, we live for truth and die for truth. So, this is our Journalists’ family. Wait …Wait … and calm your heart beating, allow us to ask one question that are we journalists unite and belong to family? This question would like to leave for world and answer itself.
We covet to remind you that this world is not only divided into classes from capitalists but moneyed guns have operations on majority of minds that consciously or unconsciously all are follower line of capitalists. When our journalism start to pursue line of royal class-thinking than how can we blame at them those are against truth. We have examined that biggest newspapers and electronic media have importance and their journalists if got cut on her/his skin, world would listen voice for them and we are heard speeches that truth is going to hang. Have you heard voice in favor of journalists who were killed and dumped on roads? In Balochistan between 2010 to 2011 journalists have been killed and butchered, those were Mohammad Khan Sasoli, Khuzdar Press Club President, Faiz-ud-Din Sasoli, Khuzdar, Muneer Shakir, Khuzdar, Illyas Nazer, Editor of Balochi Magazine – Turbat, Lala Hameed Baloch, President of Gwadar Press Club and correspondent of Daily Tawar, Ejaz Raisani, Cameramen of Sama TV, Quetta, Yousaf Eido Baloch, Human Rights Worker and Journalist in Mekran, Naseer Javed Rind, Ex Sub-Editor and writer Daily Tawar from Hub, Rehmat Ullah Shaheen, Journalist, Poet, Intellectual from Mach-Bolan and Ali Sher Kurd, Writer.
Thanks to international communities at least those have put their name in list of journalists especially organization of CJP “Committee to protect journalists”. But where is strong voice for them? It is very well news that Pakistan President Mr. Asif Ali Zardari has taken notice threaten of journalists who belong Pakistan Urdu Media Channels. Comically wave is that Mr. President has not taken notice of Balochistan’s Journalists those killed, have been getting threats day by day. Nowhere notice for Baloch Journalists and when they kill than organizations would add name in the list. Recently Pakistan’s very well-known journalist Mr. Najam Sethi coded that “Several journalists from Balochistan have been killed by non-state vigilantes sponsored by state agencies. … If you say we should construct a social welfare state in place of a national security state, you are a CIA agent.”
Balochistan Journalists have not received strong voice for their safety but they always get 20 or 30 words that Balochistan journalists are in trouble.
If Pakistani journalists or international organizations come on roads and write for journalists’ security and Pakistan media loudly crying on big newspapers journalists then why not in case of Balochistan?
Journalists of Balochistan work in control state where all things are being controlled even human rights too.
If Baloch says that Balochistan ought to be used its own right on its land, we would be gotten tag of CIA agent. There is no harm that Journalists are agent but agent of Truth.
We would request to world that all journalists must be treated as journalists, do not give propriety only big royal walls. If we start follow such steps, no one would seek truth and journalism become factory.
Now we call world with slogan that, Journalists of the World! Unite.
Peep into Balochistan where journalists are unsafe and have no voice for their security.
Who killed Dr. Baqir Shah?
Dr. Baqir Shah, who was the forensic investigator of infamous Kharotabad case, has been shot dead on December 30, 2011. He was conducting the postmortem on the bodies of five foreigners killed by security forces in broad day light.
He had been receiving threats, which he told media persons during his press conference that he is being threatened to fudge postmortem reports of the five foreigners, who were the nationals of the Russia, Chechan, killed on May 17, 2011 by security forces in Kharotabad.
He disproved the claim of the security forces that foreigners were suicide attackers, died after detonating themselves. He confirmed in the report that they flat lined by bullet wounds.
Dr. Baqir Shah, despite receiving death threats, did not recant his statement. He accepted the death boldly because he was acquainted that he would not be left alive.
Many organizations are working in Balochistan but they can’t be responsible for his death because he was neither a Punjabi nor Shia. He was from Naseerabad district, Balochistan, where such mindsets rarely exist or at all don’t exist.
After his killing, hospitals in Balochatan, remained closed. The doctors severely condemned his killing as well as demanded the arrest of perpetrators who killed Dr. Baqir Shah.
In Balochistan not only Dr. Baqir Shah has been killed mercilessly but also Dr. Mazaar Baloch and Dr. Mumtaz Haider.
It really boggles the mind that he was killed due to disproving the report of the security forces prepared.
Here this incident proved that this society does’t have scope for truth or for those people who have sense of duty for being supreme creature. It is easy to be understood that if we discard the characteristic of truth and sense of duty from a society, so then that society becomes herd of ravenous carnivores.
Pashtoons: brothers in days of rejoice – In trouble bye, bye
Couple of weeks ago BBC broadcasted interview of Mehmood Khan Achakzai chairman of Pashtoon Khuwa Mili Awami Party. During interview Mr. Achakzai gave references of British era but ignored nations’ history, tradition and civilization process. Being a politician he must have an idea of human habits and evolution of folk songs, poetry and living style the humans’ which all shows past as like mirror of that nation or human society. Pashtoon and Baloch are neighboring nations; they know better each other than British, whose references Mr. Achakzai has given and Baloch areas declared of Pashtoons’ Land, where he intended to make a separate province but said areas own Baloch history, poetry, folk music and so on.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai affirmed in his interview that Baloch has major share to make alliance with Pashtoon. But it is bizarre that resources distribution wants as formula of fifty-fifty and as well he wants this disregarding population difference.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai said that they don’t condemn the throwing act of mutilated bodies of Baloch by establishment, because they don’t want to be part of any side. He knows better that in this world things exist with positive and negative qualities. In both groups, one is true and one is false. Mr. Achakzai doesn’t want to support truth because he thinks his interests are joint with powerful. This style of politic is not philanthropic or supportive to truth but only opportunism and is compromising for personal interests.
If we take a glimpse of federal and provincial employment ratio in Balochistan, then we come to know that Pashtoons are enjoying more than Balochs. Pashtoons have occupied majority of high level posts and training campus on behalf of government conducted or sent abroad for capacity building, whose beneficiaries are totally Pashtoons and Balochs are even unaware of availing such chances.
Only in Bolan Medical College seats to be reviewed, then a huge difference can be observed that mostly Baloch districts have given four to five seats but contrary to this each district of Pashtoons’ containing eight to ten seats, even then Pashtoonkhuwa’s leaders demanding for fifty-fifty.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai’s this saying that we don’t want to be part of any group neither Baloch nor establishment. He also bring forth his demands on a such juncture that Balochs are receiving tortured bodies daily wise, but not to talk of sharing the pain and grief of brother nation, albeit they haven’t condemned this tyranny act.
From these it seems that Mehmood Khan and his party is brother of only in rejoicing days and saying bye-bye in days of troubles. They only want fifty percent of happiness and comforts, but they don’t need any sharing of pain and trouble of Baloch.
Several commentators have implied that Mehmood Khan Achakzai’s party is organ of those tactics of establishment to counter Baloch struggle. These sayings seem hefty because when Baloch were not engaged in war, their leaders several time offered Pashtoons; if they want separation from Baloch they are allowed, but that time the said party and its leaders were voiceless. Now taking stand against Baloch is not empty blame that they are being pushed by someone.
Second Anniversary of the Aghaz-e-haqooq Balochistan
It is the day when Aghaz-e-Haqooq Balochistan bill was approved in Parliament. But after elapsing two years, on second anniversary of the Aghaz-e-haqooq Balochistan bill, outlawed Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) attacked on FC convoy in Musa Khel District, whereby FC personnel lost 15 live along with a Major.
It is reputed, too that the Provincial Government has faced fiasco because manifold problems of the Balochistan, being manipulated by the security personnel. From minters to the Governor, calls themselves helpless, but don’t bother to resign.
Baloch nationalists have been chanting slogan over the presence of the FC personnel in Balochistan because they consider that their presence is making the people behind the eight ball. That is attacks on FC, are not being condemned. They also make them responsible for the unabated series of decomposed bodies of the Baloch people, are being thrown in the abandoned areas of the Balochistan and abduction of the youth, too.
Outlawed organizations, in Balochistan, are increasingly attacking security forces, and are not in favor of negotiation with government. These have always been showing animosity against the development works of the government. They claim that Baloch ministers, sitting in Assemblies, are providing succor to the establishment.
Government also failed on its behalf, the implementation of Aghaz-e-Haqooq Balochistan bill on ground, the tangible evident of this argue is the provincial ministers confess for not serving their constituencies due to lack of funds for development projects from central government. Failure about this bill is also making valid the viewpoint of outlawed organizations and their entity. Several times provincial government authorities expressed their helplessness too, and they voiced that they don’t listen to them. The ruling authorities have blocked from three directions, but only way is open, to give rights of masses and win their heart and minds, but up till now they have been seen fail in this campaign.
Take Money – No Justice…!
In Pakistan state, past and present is full in mistakes after having bunch of mistakes; they are assuming that future would be freed from mistakes. Reality has another picture, it is as not as we are seen. Unless, learn from Past, and do not repeat it in present, never be able to get healthy future. Whilst, real power holders of Pakistan very well known that if Pakistan state is in grave troubles because of denying learn from Past and accept rights of indigenous people’s rights. When you do not accept and adopt learning approach, what do they want from them whose rights become slave? At least, in 21st century must realize and think that what are doing and for what and with whom, those people are innocent and want to be live under sky of real life. Is it sin? We all are agreed that live in spirit of life, it is not sin but it would varnish to promote any ill activities in human society. Simple things can never be understood by Dictators. Dictators think they are correct but political consciousness and history of people will prove that Dictators always wrong. And same thing happened with Former Dictator of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf (1999 to 2008) what he did not do? He applied all horrors steps in his regime, luxury and anti – people Power makes mad, hence former dictator General Pervez Musharraf became mad cow, who always thinks he is righteous, reality is different. Mr. Dictator Musharraf, he destroyed the bridge of peace and gave river of blood in Balochistan, not only this, in his era many people of Balochistan were being kidnapped and none of know where are? Either alive or died? Missing people data is high the reason is that many common people are kidnapped those have moral affiliation with Balochistan’s Parties and youth in mountain. Missing people data shows 14000 and VBMP tells 1600 from 2011 and missing people whose bodies founded out as martyred are 300. Many people tell that due to disturbance in Balochistan, they are unable to collect actual data because they believe that ratio of Missing People is too high and Government of Pakistan is not loyal in collecting data of missing people.
So far, question rises, where is Justice? When Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Iftikhar Choudheri who is popular taking Sue Mottos and mostly he has solved cases. But in missing people case, picture goes change, why? No doubt, Missing People case runs in Supreme Court but still no justice for missing people and recently Supreme Court during hearing of case said that IF Pakistan agencies are not able to find out missing people, they ought be admit that we can apology to families of missing people and in second statement says that If Pakistan agencies are failed in search of missing people, must adjust families of missing people by giving them monthly amount. We ask, is it same Supreme Court when single implementation is being ignored on its sue motto, entire champion of democracy, champion of electric-media start cry that this is insult of Supreme Court and public? Have you heard single tiny voice on missing people case and Supreme Court statement that adjust by money? Do not we think, this is insult of missing people, their families, queen of justice, and poor public along with generations of future? We have never read that justice can be filled up by rupees and by forcibly on them those want justice. We all try to understand pain of missing people and their families those have been looking for their people for years. Once, Veteran Leader of Balochistan Mr. Khair Bux Marri said in his interview (Published in Bolan Voice) that according to his information Mostly Missing People are being killed and their graves are near to RawalPendi. What is reality? We and common people of this land think that instead of justice, giving money is not way to solve problems. Missing people must be visible; their families ought to be known that what has been happened with their beloveds. And must be punished to dictator Musharraf who is caused of sorrows of missing people’s families. If this time leaves vacuum of missing people then none of can be filled up. We think Supreme Court and real Power holders of Pakistan would think on this matter and search justice instead of money. Now Ball is in court of Supreme Court how do they justice with missing people?
Rital Eid, Religious Parties and Missing Persons
Written in Pak – studies that this country Pakistan has been formed with purpose of living for Muslims and serving to religion Islam. In Sub-Continent a large number of Muslim population was living without secede identification of Muslims. Though human can’t be distinguished or divided in faction on criteria of religion but this country right wing and most powerful faction claims gaining state on basis of two nations theory. In simple words Muslims live in separate state and Hindus in another.
Sub-Continent was divided in two states Pakistan for Muslims and India for Hindus, but implementation of idea on ground isn’t viable and not doable to segregate Humans as religion belonging, because a large population of Muslim even now living in India after formation of Pakistan, similarly a portion of Hindus inhabiting in Pakistan and Bangladesh (East Pakistan). The partition couldn’t simplify states on religion basis. It is another matter religious elements dominating in Pakistan.
In Pakistan powerful group claims state as being Islamic and Islam never allows injustice with mankind especially with Muslim brothers. The Islamic parties and elements raise voice for Muslims of world but in their own country if Baloch Muslim suffer by their Muslims hands, they become voiceless.
Eid is sacred day for Muslims. This day they celebrate, pay sacrifice for blessing of God, help to helpless and do many more for generous and virtuous act. On same day of Eid quite opposed to the nature, instead of celebrating and cheering-up, aggrieved Balochs came on road with banners, place card, photos of relatives. Yes, these are relatives of Baloch Missing Persons who sacrificed their Eid and happiness for sack of their beloved, Who have gone missing for longtime and many of them have been tortured to death, their mutilated bodies being are found from deserted areas of Balochistan.
It is distressing that a country got by name of Islam and humans protest on most sacrilegious day Eid but all institutes of state become deaf, dumb and blind toward these then how this is to be called and Islamic state?
The religious parties and those elements that claim for being heir of Islam and always arrange protests in favour of Islamic system and against America mostly conducting protests and rallies have become their tradition, are unable to do anything for those innocent children and girls who came on road for protesting with their endears photos, place card on eve of Eid. They never can celebrate in severance of their beloved and Islamic elements evading toward missing Baloch Case, is not matching with their faiths and proclaims. Merely slaughter of animal and collecting fur are no Islamic obligation but feeling of surrounding people pain and sorrows are more preferred by God.
Denying justice to Missing Balochs is also negating from Two Nations theory or aim of getting this Islamic state.
Hollow threats of All Parties Conference
If we spot light on Pakistani politics of last decades then it looks very disappointing that Politicians belong to elite classes, have occupied high posts in army. Entire nation and backward provinces or areas have no contribution in country’s ruling affairs. These elite class people come turn by turn in rule and loot wealth of country’s people pitilessly. They deposited wealth in foreign banks, made properties abroad, established business, bought agricultural land and so on. These politicians evolved such culture that there only looting or securing of individuals interests. The layer which rules has no concern with majority of low class. The happening events in country and negligence of rulers are evident of this logic.
In 1971 when Bengali politicians won the election but authorities denied to handover power to them. This event wasn’t a minor incident which caused state division in to two pieces but All Parties politician did nothing only followed interests especially compromised for seats to acquire wealth. None of them was worried about sovereignty of state.
In 1973 an operation launched in Balochistan by help of Iran against Balochs in Bhutto era and this sowed seed of abhorrence and slackened bases of state; however, politicians of these parties hadn’t stood to secure the country felling in hell of hates and foes. That time all parties did not make any effort as usual they were busy in pursuance of throne and wealth and no one had a tinge of pain for country.
In previous decade earthquake hit northern areas of state and worst human crises took place. It wasn’t less than a doom for state. On that occasion political parties hadn’t made any feat for nation but contrary to that they embezzled in provided aids by foreign community and distrusted international community about this state. All parties member were failed to grant relieve victimized people and remained dormant.
Last year in Sindh and Balochistan history’s worst flood hit. Million people displaced and hundreds lost their lives. Innumerable property and livestock loss faced by there people. It was horrible devastation. These areas people are even affected badly to date. Country’s politician what did for masses, situation narrates itself. All Parties members were gazing on aids provided by foreigners and as here tradition victim and deserving remained deprived.
Due to corrupt system people are living below the line of poverty and much horrific news appeared in media that poor people are compelled to sell their child or commit suicide with their entire family in hands of destitution. Such inhuman incident became common and inflation made embitter the lives of people but politician never felt tragedian situations and All Parties haven’t took any step for relieve of suffering masses.
When American invaded Afghanistan these politicians were sailing in airs that now they will get Dollars and they got too. No one had love with country or its sovereignty. Authorities stuffed their luggage with Dollars and have gone abroad but given turn to other politicians now you people earn. Following same pattern present rulers are busy in minting Dollars.
Now America facing trouble in region and she doesn’t want to pay further more Dollars. She wants to stop this Dollar paying series to here authorities. She is demanding to vanish those elements by pretext those you are getting Dollar. It is painful juncture for them.
All Parties Conference have been called and all those parties have taken part in it, who have earned Dollars from America or they have snatched morsel from poor people during disasters, which were given by other countries by human base to victims. These politician history shows that they never felt responsibilities of country but by opportunism looted wealth of masses. Now how they can stand against America in love of country. Their threats are hollow and nation must not make expectations from them.
UN responsibility for Balochistans’ journalists!
In second World War million people lost their lives because of modern war equipments were invented, which were destructive than older. Million people became lame even today the fallout of those used weapons are causing born of abnormal children especially in Japan, where America lobbed Atomic bombs on Japans cities Heeroshima and Nagasaki. Second World War brought human catastrophic.
Keeping in view human rights abuses and destruction leaders sat for prevention t
o world from such tragedies and formed organization United Nation Organization by propose American President Rose Wallet. The organization established in 1945 with intentions to protect human rights, make prosper humanity, maintain peace in world, equal provision of opportunities to entire world without discrimination of regional affiliation and race. Oppressed Nations rights and their freedom was especially underlined because this issue was causing war among the nations, even today it is core issue of world and great threat for world peace. United Nation has awarded to each field people rights and obligations withstanding Journalists.
After 16th century science advanced enough and invented modern tools for all fields of life but communication advancements are prominent among all. This field is interconnecting to world people. Each field of life and every person can’t help without relying on media. The vital role of media become major cause for granting especial rights, exemption from laws and privileges to journalists in entire world including Pakistan and its province Balochistan, only excluding Baloch belt. Yes, Baloch belt in Balochistan is most dangerous for journalists, even they are performing neutrally journalistic duties but during few years more than 8 journalists lost their lives and still perpetrator or murders of journalists have not been identified and brought before court.
Journalists are presenting real picture of Balochistan to world. It is possible that any group dislike this and want to conceal situations in this modern age, hence they are doing this homicide and want to make voiceless Balochistan or intended to portray the Balochistan image contorted or as desirous against the ground realities.
It must be cleared that Balochistans’ Pashtoon belt situations are normal as like other parts of country. In Baloch areas Khuzdar is most effected and imperiled for journalists where on 14th August another one Muneer Shakir lost his life by unknown assailants.
United Nation provides safe environments to entire world field of journalism workers and after killing of many journalists in Balochistan this organization took notice on Muneer Shakir death. But only organization this merely notice toPakistangovernment that investigate in murder of journalist Muneer is not enough. It is admirable that said organization at least tuned her face toward Balochistans’ victims. Here Balochistan people especially journalists are now anticipating from United Nations interference and provision of a safe environment to this field workers likewise other parts of world. It is also obligation and basic essence of this organization formation. Being in notice and informed, further negation will be reasonless and injustice of United Nation with powerless people but organization is not found for collecting injustices for world humans including Balochistans’ journalists and others.
Rulers’ invitation and deny to estranging Balochs for negotiations!
Provincial government especially Chief Minister Aslam Raisani several times invited estranged Baloch for negotiations. He has also thrice said that he does not have mandate for negotiation too. The provincial government many time stated that they don’t listen us. They were pointing toward federal authorities. Here this perception is not wrong that civil authorities were not listening to them. Consequently development projects are not launched at all or these are incomplete because of lacking funds. So on, which base provincial authorities are inviting estranged Balochs, are they able to meet their demands for that they paid heavy price and still their struggle going on?
Federal cabinet held meeting inQuetta, more than media displays, nothing have been done on ground. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani as usually invited estranged Baloch for negotiations but didn’t bother to conceive that why they became estranged? He didn’t mention any agenda for negotiations. And accompanied Interior Minister Rehman Malik as precedent dictator threatened to Balochs ultimate consequences and crushed-out during same trip and delegation. Here it seems they were merely performing any tradition or making news for TV and papers. In real they are acting against the ground realities.
Chief of Army Staff General Ishfaque Pervez Kiyani during his visit toQuettaplainly said army will not negotiate directly with estranged Balochs. He stated this during inauguration ceremony ofAcademyofMedical Sciences. The development or establishing of institutes is responsibility of civil government but army chief inaugurated, on other hand they denied negotiation with Balochs that this obligation is of civil government not army’s. In fact civil government is not able to get her share of funds for developments of province.
The Baloch who believe in negotiation process and think resolve of matters through talks should wait for a good and suitable time. Right now, state authorities are not ready to bring any serious group for negotiations with Balochs. It is possible that they want to do something else in loud voices of negotiations’ invitations.
American’s interests in Balochistan.
On 2nd May 2011 in Abottabad American Special Forces raided on a compound, where top militant leader Usama Bin laden was subsisting. They slain him and accompanied cadaver with themselves. Bin Laden was residing very near to army’s top training center, but state officials said they were not aware of Usama’s abode, which is incredible. After this incident the policies of both countries got changed because of distrust in each other.
Pakistansaid toAmerica“vacate the provided bases”, which were facilitated to her by Musharraf against threat “IfPakistandoes not provide bases and logistic support to American for raid onAfghanistan, then she will be thrown in stone age by bombardment.” That time American Secretary Defense Mr. Richard Armitage delivered these words to Musharraf during a meeting with him.
After Bin Laden death dissuasion once again rifted both countries ties. Now Pakistani authorities told American to vacate Shamshi Airbase, where from drone (Pilotless) small aircrafts take off for missile attacks on Islamic militants in FATA and some areas Khyber Pakhtoonkhawa. It is also being heard that state receives sufficient amount against provision of Balochistan land in Kharan.
Americais uni-superpower of age; she denied vacating of Shamshi airbase in Kharan, where hundreds of CIA personnel staying. An area notable Qadir Baloch also affirmed this thatAmericais not assent to go from Kharan. In Jacobabad, Shehbaz airbase she had sublet for years.
In this way state sovereignty is being trembled byAmericabut state authorities never cared about this. Because ifAmericastops providing aid, then country entity would be endangers, so it is better that violation of sovereignty than to collapse of entire state structure.
Now state is gulfed in energy and gas crises worst and once again Balochistan will be used but permission ofAmericais needed for gas pipe fromIran.Pakistan’s petroleum minister said that they had planned to import gas fromIranvia Balochistan. Right now they are going to start survey for this project and after six month they will launch implementation on ground practically and this project will accomplish till 2014. Here in Balochistan already differences are existing and Baloch insurgents never allowed state to utilize province’s resources. They have been blowing gas pipe lines, infra-structures and values of state. These groups’ policies are totally averse to Pak-Iran. After Usama’s death diversion in policies of Pak inclination towardChinaand importing gas from a rogue state (declared byAmerica) call for new alliance in Balochistan. This is very appropriate time for nearness to both,Americaand resisting groups because of common interests and same oppositions.
By nowAmericahas to think about people of those areas whose land she is using. Neither had she helped area locals financially nor politically. She claims for being champion of human rights defender and most civilized nation in world but does not care small the interests of nations who are ever been oppressed.
Prime Minister’s benefaction of Missing people
In earlier days Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani announced Rs.60000 for each missing person kin. He said these missing persons’ families are roving different towns for justice. Their situations are pathetic and from this amount they will meet sustenance problems for some extent. The authorities said, “Present government is facing financial crises but they will pay announced amount to missing relatives and they are mulling over that allocated Zawakat amount use for this purpose.”
Humanitarian and Missing Person organizations declared this announcement mock on missing people and their kin. They said that they needed their dears not money. In this way rulers are rubbing salt on their wounds. They are knocking doors of every organization and institute not for Rs.60000 but for their beloveds.
Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani felt pain of missing peoples’ relatives. He is sympathetic for his citizens that he announced a big amount for them even his government is subsided in financial crises. Here it seems that he has sympathy for relatives not for missing people. He didn’t announce justice requisitions for them or it is probable that he has no authority to do such. If this perception is true then he is just Prime Minister namely. Because Pakistan is parliament-running state where people vote for their representatives for membership of parliament and these elected parliamentarians nominate a personality for higher rank which is chief authority of state and called Prime Minister.
This is the question: Why Prime Minister did not order to bring surface these missing people? He could order to provide these before the court for justice, where judges can award sentences to them if they committed guilt as mentioned in constitution.
This act of Prime Minister implies that they have bought peoples’ endears against this very small amount or he tried to demise love of dear merely for Rs.60000. As human values, it, really, is mockery. On Eid occasion people pay million rupees for sacrificial animals but animals can be bought human never can not be. They only are to be provided justice through state constitution which is written code of citizen and equally be abided to all as assigned status. Society life is based on justice only. In human history whenever any nation denied for justice to powerless then destruction became destiny of that nation. Prime Minister must provide justice to these rather than Rs.60000/-.
Baloch Hindus: why migrating…?
It is hypothesized and some government department mentioned that Balochistan population is approximately 10.0 million. Half of population consists of Baloch nation and the remaining includes Pashtoon and non-Baloch. Government declared minorities are Hindus, Christian and others. Only Hindus’ population presently mentioned is about 50000. These Hindus belong to Baloch nationality and they are not ready to be counted as minority because they claim for being indigenous of this land. Balochistan history as well accepts their indignity of this land, because here many places name match with theirs goddess name.
Hindus religion worldwide has 68 sacred places and two of most worshiping temples are situated in Balochistan. Hanglaj Mata is situated on the bank of Hangol River near Lasbella, where Hindus of world come for pilgrimage especially Indian high profile personalities attended ritual here. Second is Harisar, which is situated in District Bolan’s town Shoran. An Indian Minister Yaswant Singh; during his pilgrimage to Baluchistan’s temples claimed that in Bolan on venue of B.B Nani is also sacred place for Hindus. Another famous worshiping venue for Hindus is situated in Nari Gaj area.
In Balochistan Hindus Baloch are mostly related with profession of trade and medical fields. Their socio-economy is good because of provident temperament or sincerity with their professions. Hindus families, mostly, live in urban areas in Baloch belt of Balochistan; their population in Pashtoon belt is very fewer.
During Musharraf’s era operation in Dera Bugti, displaced communities in large number, including Hindus. Many families whose financial status were sound migrated to neighboring country India, a leading figure is Arjan Das Bugti who was a famous politician and companion of Akbar Khan Bugti. Other families withstanding Hindus are living worst lives in different parts of country.
During 2010 and 2011, about 50 to 60 families or 250 to 300 people migrated to India. The Hindus people say they would migrate to India but difference in currency value of states is great hurdle. They say, insecurity has compelled to them for thinking about this painful option, otherwise they love Balochistan, the culture and climate of Balochistan never allow to them for leaving motherland. Criminal and unknown elements, especially, target to them for making compel for leaving. And Hindus are not able to combat them because of religious atmosphere. Hindus Baloch owns enough tolerance because they never reacted after sacrilege of their religious places or temples even these is inhuman act because human and nature laws prohibit from interference or disrespect to someone creed.
The founder of this state had announced foremost day that each believer of faith has right to practice his or her dogma but now this golden adages are not being followed and migration of Hindus is evident of this logic. As Well as, history is showing that when a state or society starts toward the fall or ebb then most weak portions or groups be targeted or maltreated. It is tradition of mankind that sags or educated people ever runaway from warfare. They need a peaceful and loving environment for prosper and searching life style.
The authorities of this state are not reading this historical manifesto or deliberately committing that bases of existing state structure be slacken. Inquietude of Hindus in Balochistan is foretelling for a change whether it can be positive or destructive. It is obvious on all that running system has got failed, if someone confesses or not. The inhabitants of Balochistan specially those Balochs who are voicing for change must read face of time and strive to bend these occuring changes in their favor instead of collecting ruin or destruction. It is sure that conspirator and radical elements never loved Baloch Culture and hospitality but irrationally want impose of outsiders agenda.
Coal Mine Blast in Sooranje.
The life is how bitter in this state! It can be assessed from this: the majority of people are ready to commit suicide or to work in such environments which are similar to suicide. From hunger they die due to that they adopted unsafe works which are also being counted death of society. People don’t shun any crime; they are killing each other, looting and robbing. A fresh example proves the argument that a coal mine in Soorenj workers without any protective measures working. Because they are compelled to do so, if they don’t the giant of hunger is following, will swallow to them. This fear has overcome on fear or soreness of death. But state authorities are not able to feel boiling volcano, which is about to burst-out.
Soorenj, Some 40 kilometer from provincial capitalQuetta, where a coal mine blast occurred, and during this 53 mine workers were busy in working. This mine was running under supervision of PMDC, while blast occurred in night of between Saturday and Sunday. Due to that 53 mine workers struck in. Secretary mines Mushtaque Raisani told that rescue works were under process, he said because of non-provision of oxygen mine workers are dying.
On the other hand provincial minister banned on government and private mining in area as preemptive measure, taking place any misshape. Security forces have been deployed in the area to implement on this. Chief Minister ordered to Secretary for probe in matter while minister for mines Abdul Rehman Mengal declared responsible to PMD and structured a committee to investigate in the matter and provide report to government. In mine stricken all of 53 workers died. It is to be remembered that mining is a major industry in Balochistan and about 60000 people employment is joint with this and majority of these labor belong to Malakand and Swat areas of Kheyber Pakhtoonkhuwa province.
State machinery is busy only in meeting avidities of elites or dominant. Poor are dying in misshapes and or in hand of hunger. State is like mother of its citizens, if a mother child hurts then she cries-out as if she is burnt but this state machinery has become rustic that its sons and daughters are dying, committing suicides rulers are not pinching finger.
Recently, World Bank published a report that Pakistani citizen are not able to buy merely bread, they take barrow for buying bread. One time stomach can tolerate not to have food but more than this it can’t. Then people even go to labor in those death mines without rescue or other facilities. Few days before a delegation of labors called upon Mufti Naeemi and demanded that they should issue decree that people to loot owners because they don’t have to eat. If they do so, imagine what kind of anarchy would take place. And these are signs which emerged before a revolution and a revolution is always led by anarchism. Rebuilding of state machinery is necessary otherwise people will die in mines but ruler remain in luxuries.
Balochistan’s Government three years performance.
Group living is called society, societies gathering, are named as state or country. Human history firstly saw city states in Greek where Athens and Sparta states established. Before from this human society wasn’t developed, they were living in groups, tribes, Gins or in jungles and caves. It is also proved from history that state functions by group working or run by a system. People learned from history and weaved web of principles for collective benefits and advancing process of mankind civilization. History’s mirror is displaying many failed systems, which got failed due to not abiding by principles. In the perspective of history’s lesson, it was obvious that this government of Balochistan may also face such situations, which are in front of us.
Present provincial government came in, with tall claims that they would meet all needs of Balochistan: eradication of poverty, educational equilibrium level, compared to other provinces and remove marginalization with Balochistan by legitimization of parliamentarian amendments because present governing party thinks it is pioneer of democracy in Pakistan. Balochistan will get its due share from federal financial institutes as being enriched with resources of mineral and coast.
Law and order situation will be settled. Even extent of this that Chief Minister vowed that he would normalize situation in Balochistan within two years of his government, in the case of failure he would resign from incumbent.
During this president and prime minister apologized from people of Balochistan, however apologizes were merely lips service. In practical nothing got changed on the ground and same behavior has been continued with people of Balochistan. Even many groups are claiming that this government is worst than its precursor. Several meetings even most expensive meeting of state’s history held in Gwadar on a ship and announcements were made for consensus on NFC Award. Packages were announced for Balochistans’ youth employment. In this regard millions rupees were spent for clamor through newspapers and electronic media in the shape of advertisement.
After three years all the things are same even it will not be wrong to say that got worsen. Law and order situation is this that DG Police and Chief Secretary have been attacked. Not to talk of common people even Chief Minister and Governor have themselves been attacked. Bullet riddle died bodies of youth are dumped in deserted areas or thrown near the roads side daily wise. Advocate and judges are being abducted. Abduction for ransom has become most common. Many time Chief Minister himself affirmed that they don’t listen us. Now recently Chief Minister said that we are not getting our share as newly settled in Gwadar meeting of NFC award. Announced Balochistan Package is not being implemented and federal bureaucracy hurdle in this.
At this point, Chief Minister Aslam Raisani or any other individual can’t be blamed personally, but it is system which got failed. Society’s best formed principles for state smooth running and better life of collective instead of individual. Contrary to this, here is a mind evolved benefit to individual, which is caused of destruction of society or state. These are the reasons that present government couldn’t perform in a better way and have not achieved its tall claims, which were predicted on initial point that remaining in prevailed system it seems very hard, come to get.
NATO Containers and Religious Parties Role!
Human psychology proved that human ever worked at personal interests and contrary to this collective progress can be gained by killing of personal interests, and only abiding this norm human prosperity and equality can be touched. Mankind ever strived to live better but history mirror shows that whenever mankind thought about commune progress than could achieve a trouble free life. But it is human that never abandon avidity. Avidity means bring himself superior and other inferior. For this purpose he used many tools like religion, fake democracy and many more.
Presently the role of religious parties in Pakistan also seems as like. They ever raised slogan against America but their personal interest never allowed them as they voice. They are against west but their progeny are getting education in Europe. They noise against America in front of media but their wrath never been seen against NATO containers. Here also personal interest and avidity don’t let them to step against this earning source.
These more than 3000 vehicles daily pass through Pakistan to Afghanistan containing food items, fuel and others. 200 vehicles pass through Balochistan and others go via Khyber Pakhtoonkhawa, which is most religious area in Pakistan. These containers in Balochistan are mostly attacked by unknowns and rarely in other parts of country. Even the major number travels not from Balochistan. In Balochistan Bolan pass and Khuzdar, Mastung and Wadh areas are most targeted for these. It is worth mentioning that department transport especially and other business field ordinarily occupied by religious people. It is being observed that these container’s owners are religious and supporter of religious parties and groups. While traveling these people maintain their prayers on accurate times.
But it is stunning that on the one hand they are serving devil America and on the other hand on same moment they are showing themselves pious in front people and divine. Their vehicles are loaded with forbidden foods but prayer times they don’t miss; quickly break and majestic way go and offer. Here it is very easy to conceive that they don’t let pass profitable chance of earning whether it is valid or invalid to religion.
Religious party like Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam and Jamat-e-Islami have never be seen protesting or making blockade in ways of these NATO containers. Even these pass every day in close proximity to their house gates. They never threw a single stone on these and blocked high ways for them; even they are able enough to do so. It is possible if they do this then their big brother’s business will be disturbed. They are busy to demonstrate and protest against the Risalat law, such occasion when revolutions are occurring in Arab countries and there’s changing wind may not affect ongoing exploitive system to divert nation concentration from this issue.
Ahh…No Humanitarian Voice for Balochs’ dead Bodies?
In prehistoric age human being were living in caves, hunting of animals and birds was his sustenance technique. That time human knowledge level was low. Evolution process taught human in various department of life. Darwin says “In this cosmos things are variable because of evolution process and human also can’t be isolated from this process”. No one can deny human’s progress in all fields. If anyone says that ancient people had owned qualities and today’s not, so they are not accepting evolution law and trying to go in back history, which is revolt with said law and their surmount seems unworkable, but each religion has this kind of thoughts whether they belong to any creed or dogma. Human owns both qualities philanthropy and savageness in his nature. Being social animal human ever strived to live in society and remains interconnected with each other for betterment and facilitation to society or collective progress of humanity. If human live jointly, hence they will be knitted in laws or codes, which he has to abide, otherwise that society can’t be called a human’s society. Then in that society groups and individual have right to get isolated from this or weave another bunch of codes or make separate society as well deserves to join a better group for delightful life, because human ever quest for good to better life which is his fundamental right.
Here our society lacks fundamental notion of humanity justice. Peoples are deprived of justice; therefore, they are becoming rebellious from constitution or codes which were arranged for passing collective lives. In Balochistan throwing of tortured bodies has become a daily routine; it is another question that what their guilt is. In this way it seems that someone is imposing its ideology on others, in case of un-acceptance they are facing such brutal and inhuman consequence. Most of tortured bodies are of Balochs; here ruling government comprises on majority of Balochs but according to law they didn’t do anything for prevention of these acts. Even they own power because they have state machinery to arrest culprits and provide them before of courts. Their silence and inactivity is beyond to understanding.
When Chief Justice of Pakistan was sacked by a dictator then Balochistan’s civil societies and advocates were on forefront to re-instate him for a smooth and justice based society. Here it is also necessary to be mentioned that Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftekhar Mohammad Chaudary basically belongs to Balochistan. He took Sue Moto notice on many issues, but on this human tragedy judiciary is also silent. Those Balochistan’s groups who wailed much for re-instatement of Chief Justice of Pakistan are also thinking that why not this issue is being considered.
Religious groups and parties have shown furious on minor issues and were ready for violence and commotion. A religious party ever been part of Balochistan government and enjoying for long time have ever took notice of those issues which has contrast to establishment’s interests but this party and other religious groups are not playing their roll about tortured bodies. This time it seems as if this issue is not occurring around their or they are completely unaware of this.
In this way organs are denied of justice which are basic ingredient of society. Mankind social progress relies on justice. History is witness that whenever any society discarded this basic norm from their lives, then they faced history’s inexorable destruction. About tortured bodies Baloch rulers and Judiciary must play their roll and stop this savageness. They must bring culprits before the courts and panelize according to prevailing laws, otherwise no one can escape from natural check and evolution laws.
Ignorance of knowledge.
In chaotic province Balochistan during target killing many people have lost their lives. They belonged to different walk s of life. But when ever teachers or professors were targeted then governmental authorities and others of societies’ people made noise that knowledge distributing people are being targeted and our future generations are being pushed in to darkness as a conspiracy, because without knowledge life is in fact dark. We have observed that whenever journalists got targeted by miscreants then big blare was made in media and rulers and victims or their families were compensated by state and their services were admired. Journalists throughout country hold protests for security and compensation of deceased journalists. These acts were very good for journalists because they were armless and belonged to department which provides knowledge to people. But another thing is stinging that why not this behaves is for all journalists.
Lala Hameed Baloch Secretary General Gawader Press Club was abducted on 25 October 2010. Lala Hameed Baloch along with another friend was on his way on a motorcycle to Gwadar after attending the wedding party of a relative in Dasht Bairy. They had been arrested and disappeared at a security forces’ check point in Karwaat region near Gawader. Family members and friends believe that they haved been arrested and disappeared by forces like many others previously abducted in similar fashion from different areas of Balochistan. According to reports a letter found in Lala Hameed Baloch’s pocket read as: “Eid gift for the Baloch Nation”.
It is beyond to understanding that a journalist is how harming for any institute or group, because journalist must be armless but ever have legend weapon pen. They always use their pen for pointing out of flaws of society or any department. As well journalists provide knowledge to masses through their intellect and experience of deep observation in society. Whenever journalist find any defect in any organization or institute they mention this through their pen. And human societies in 21st century have declared that freedom expression is fundamental right of human being. But here in Balochistan from murder of Lala Hameed Baloch it seems that this right is not for all people except to those who favor to establishment or ruling regime. If anyone raises voice for down trodden people he will not be tolerated whether he is journalist or belongs to other field of life. Federal and provincial rulers have double policy for different people. When any incident occurs in Balochistan then those Balochs who are in ruling call for abiding Balochi norms but whenever any incident occurs against the temperament of establishment these ruling Balochs and journalists adopt quietness. In past many incidents happened in Balochistan against the journalists, here in Quetta which is metropolitan of Balochistan, protest and rallies were managed for them. But now for Lala Hameed nothing is being observed, whether he wasn’t journalist?
They don’t listen to us!
Philosopher says that ground realities can be denied, if someone tries to overwhelm the realities so he may conceal for spell but realities get emerges on surface. Same thing is happening here in Balochistan. A Baloch genuine Nationalist said “government terms exploitation as development”. After bitter experiments and getting well aware of attitudes of masters some Baloch Nationalists totally have gone to no return point. Many of them got martyrdom and many are struggling for salvation. They say that they can’t co-exist with this state element because of unjustified system and they are pessimist about reform in ongoing system, hence they parted their ways from them. The rulers time and again apologizing from Balochistans’ masses is evident that they did wrong with Balochistan those nationalist who have adopted shape of secessionist are true in their stance. On the one hand present rulers as like precedents made vows and apologized but other hand they are continuing use power to defeat those who are demanding for rights. It is beyond to understand that why they are apologizing. Chief Minister Balochistan Mohammad Aslam Raisani when got portfolio, then he was much enthusiastic to deliver the voice and feeling of Balochistans’ mass to federal rulers. And he was making much noise about implementation of 1940s resolution, and he said he will settle the disputes between nationalists and government, in case of failure he will resign, but he seems to be failed in this regards. He have much complains against the federal officers and bureaucrats and he blamed that Balochistan has no share in Islamabad. Those who are sitting in Islamabad by share of Balochistan on federal posts are not presenting real picture of Balochistan but they are totally neglecting their constituency peoples’ problem. They don’t listen to us! On speaking the floor of assembly he said that Islamabad authorities are not ready to give us attention and they are helpless to continue the developing process in Balochistan. And it is also needed to be remembered that now Chief Minister is not discussing 1940 resolution on any forum. These complains of Chief Minister Balochistan has proved that those who are hopeless from this system and structure are true. Their way of thinking and sane is much advance because they have realized earlier and selected a way for change. But it is astonishing that even realizing the situations and themselves expressing complains about establishment and why not bring change in attitudes. This is confusing that in this way are they serving to masses or merely holding ministries for their personal interests?
