BSO boycotts Pakistan Studies; burns hundreds of text books across Balochistan
Occupied Balochistan,QUETTA:After announcing a complete boycott of Pakistan Studies text books in all schools, colleges and universities, the Baloch Students Organization (BSO-Azad) burnt hundreds of Pakistan Studies text books in different parts of Balochistan on Thursday and called for Baloch teachers to silently support the boycott by refusing to teach the subject.
According to a spokesman of the Baloch Students’ Organization (BSO-Azad), the organization, with the consultation of “real Baloch intellectuals”, had decided to boycott the Pakistan Studies text books in different schools, colleges and universities of the military operation-stricken province.
As a part of boycott, the activists of Baloch Students’ Organization burnt the Pakistan Studies text books in Quetta, Kalat, Khuzdar, Buleda, Mastung, Noshki, Kharan,Pasni, Gwadar, Zamuran,Ormara and different other towns of Balochistan on Thursday in front of various press clubs.
In Khuzdar, the activists of BSO smoldered Pak Studies text books at the Government Model High School while hundreds of BSO activists did so in front of Turbat Press Club.
They have appealed to all the teachers to cooperate with the BSO to make the boycott successful by refusing to teach the subject in the educational institutions.
A spokesman of the BSO said the decision had been made after the recent killing of two of its activists Abdul Sattar Baloch and Bibarg Baloch in Khuzdar in a firing incident.
“We want the Balochs to read their own history rather than reading the misleading history of Pakistan which is taught in the text books,” said the BSO spokesman.
