Pakistan’s Youm-e-Takbeer marked as black day in Balochistan & Karachi

Occupied Baluchistan: The people of occupied Baluchistan and Baluch populated areas of Karachi observed “Black Day” on Friday to show their anger against Pakistan for detonating its deadly nuclear bomb on Baluch Soil.

The Baloch National Front (BNF), comprising different nationalist organisations, had given a shutter down strike call in Baluchistan against the nuclear blasts that had been carried out 12 years ago on May 28 in Raskoh area of Chaghai district, as a tit-for-tat response to India’s tests May 11 of the same year. The Baluch people of surrounding areas still suffer enormously and a draught had hit Baluchistan soon after the nuclear explosion. Also Radio activity, leukimia, cancer and numerous genital diseases have been reported from the different surrounding regions. Since the dirty nuclear blast Baloch have been observing 28 May as a black day, each year this day Baloch protest and demand of the International Community to sent a team of independent experts to determine the after effects of these explosions in Baluchistan.

The shutter down strike was observed in different parts of the province including Noshki, Dalbandin, Kalat, Mastung, Khuzdar, Kharan, Panjgoor, Turbat and other Baloch dominated areas of the province. Black flags were also hoisted at different locations marking the protest against the nuclear blasts.

Meanwhile demonstrations were held in Baluch populated areas against nuclear blasts. According to details the Baluch of Karachi also took to streets on the BNF’s protest call and demonstrated against nuclear blasts in Baluchistan on 28 May 1998. Leaders of BNF, BSO-azaad and other strongly condemn the then Pakistani rulers for choosing the Baluch land as their nuclear test zone.
