National Remembrance Day To Be Held In London On 17 July To Tribute The Baloch Martyrs

“The Baloch Martyrs Day 15 July”- “Shahmiren Balochaane Roch' 15 July”

The Baloch nation, like many other nations, in their struggle for freedom has endured great sacrifices. In their endeavor to achieve these aims many have encountered and experienced the wrath of the occupying states. In consequence, many Baloch men, women and children in their struggle for National Liberation have been treated violently and inhumanly by the military and the intelligence services of these occupying states. The very harsh treatment of Baloch people is well recorded, particularly by states such as Pakistan and Iran. Since their illegal occupation of Balochistan these states have been involved in the systematic imprisonment, torture, abduction and extra-judicial killings of Baloch.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons currently around 8000-13,000 Baloch political activists are in the illegal custody of Pakistani security agencies in occupied Balochistan. Tens of thousands have Baloch have been displaced and many hundreds have been either target killed by state’s security agencies or tortured to death under-custody. International Voice for Baloch Missing Persons collected the details of at least 175 Baloch political activists killed during captivity since July 2010.

Similarly hundreds of Baloch have been killed by the fundamentalist Regime of Iran in Iranian Occupied Balochistan and several are on death row waiting to be executed.

In tribute to sacrifices of the Baloch Martyrs the Baloch community in London holds a day of remembrance on the 15, July of every year. The day is nominated as “Baloch Martyrs Remembrance Day.” On this day we express our solidarity with families of Baloch Martyrs and those who are being illegally detained by occupying forces. Also, on this day there will be an exhibition of pictures, names, and a brief description on the background of each victim of occupying states’ violence.

The actual day that this Remembrance Day will take place in London is on Sunday 17th July 2011. The Remembrance Day starts from 12 noon to 5pm at:

Closest Tube station: Hammersmith Station

We wish to request from Baloch people in Balochistan and all over the world to hold 17 of July as “Baloch Martyrs Day or National Remembrance Day” to pay your deepest respects to those who paid the ultimate price of their lives for a free, democratic and united Balochistan.

Blast targets FC in Turbat; five killed several injured

Occupied Balochistan: A roadside bomb targeting a Frontier Corps (FC) convoy killed five FC personnel and wounded six in Balochistan’s Turbat area, officials said. The attack occurred in the Mand Ballo area of the district.

According to official sources “Unknown men had planted explosive material beside a road and detonated it with a remote control device when a convoy was passing through.” As a result of the explosion, five personnel were killed and six others sustained serious injuries, they maintained.

They said that the wounded personnel were given immediate medical aid in Turbat and later were referred to Quetta. According to doctors, condition of two of the six injured personnel was very critical.

Official sources confirmed that a search operation has been launched in the area lying along the Pak-Iran border in Turbat district and some suspected individuals had been taken into custody.

Further investigation was underway.

Balochistan is the scene of a war between Pakistani occupying forces and Baloch armed Organisations who are fighting for the Independence of Balochistan. It is worth mentioning that the attack on security forces was carried out less than 24 hours after the statement of Commander and Southern Command Lit. General Javed Zia where he said, “Insurgency in Balochistan is dying down”. However, today’s attack on Pakistan’s paramilitary forces and constant attacks on security forces check posts, gas pipelines, construction companies and other government places proves his claims wrong.

Balochistan continues to bleed: Body of Comrade Abdul Ghaffar Langove found

Occupied Balochistan, 1 July 2011: Baloch patriot and pro-liberation leader Abdul Ghaffar Langov has killed under-custody by Pakistani security forces, his bullet-riddled and mutilated dead body was recovered today in Gadani area of district Lasbela, Balochistan.

Comrade Ghaffar Langove Baloch was abducted by Pakistani security agencies from Karachi on 11 December 2009, from hospital where his wife was admitted. Till his extra judicial murder his whereabouts remained unknown. He had no access to legal representation neither was he family allowed to meet him.

The relatives of Ghaffar Langav have been protesting for his safe recovery from the Platform of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, an Organisation formed by the families of enforced disappeared Baloch activists, which is striving for the safe and early release of illegally detained Baloch activists and for the arrested of uniformed culprits (the FC, ISI and Military Intelligence) to be brought to justice for their crimes against humanity in occupied Balochistan.

Comrade Ghaffar was first arrested in 2000 but was released around after one month of torture and interrogation by personnel of Military Intelligence. He was rearrested in 2006 from Mangochar area of Balochistan; both times he was subjected to brutal physical and psychological torture by Pakistani Military and Intelligence agencies. After years of illegal imprisonment comrade Mir Ghaffar Langov was released on Friday 8 May 2009. He was received by hundreds of Baloch students and taken to Balochistan University. At the University Mr. Langov reaffirmed his resolve to continue the struggle for the liberation of Balochistan.

In December 2009 Mir Abdul Ghaffar Langov took his wife to Karachi for treatment when the Pakistani intelligence agencies and Karachi Police abducted him for the third time from the gate of hospital on 11, December, 2009. He was kept under illegal custody by the Pakistani security forces despite several orders by Sindh High court for his recovery. The security agencies of Pakistan ignored all the orders of the Courts and denied detaining Mr. Langov. In a free and democratic counrty the intelligence agencies and ISI would have been in contempt of court and would be detained for not obeying the Court orders but in Pakistan the Judiciary, the media, and even the parliament are subservient to the Army and ISI.

The family members of Comrade Abdul Ghaffar Baloch have constantly been protesting in Quetta, Karachi and Islamabad for his release but all in futile. They have time and again urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of his illegal abduction and get the Military Intelligence to produce him to court of law. The family went to the extent to say that if he was involved in any unlawful activities, he should be produced before the court o law in accordance with the constitution of country [Pakistan] and given the opportunity to stand a fair trial to prove his innocence or if he was found guilty he should be punished according the country’s law but all to no avail because the ISI, military Intelligence and other security agencies are a law onto themselves and running a state of their own where they believe they not answerable to anyone.
