International Humanitarian Organisations are ignoring Baloch Genocide by Pakistan: Hyrbyair Marri

Occupied Balochistan: Baloch leader Hyrbyair Marri commenting on the latest statement of Amnesty International said that though it is too little too late but the statement by AI confirms that the Pakistan (security forces) have been given a free hand to carry out mass killings in Balochistan. Despite the confirmation of AI the International Human Rights Organisation in Balochistan are turning a blind eye on state atrocities against Baloch Nation.

He said that “In my view these Organisations (by keeping silence) are supporting the colonising forces to keep their grip around occupied Nations. Their hypocritical policies of suppressing the weak nations and siding with oppressors are not in the advantage of civilised societies. It is proven from the history that slaved nations are forced to live in third world but today in the era of this global progress these International Institutions are busy finding a fourth world for the enslaved nations. In their mind the lives and dignity of oppressed Nations have no worth and value”.

Mr Marri further said that Pakistan [state] is committing atrocities and utilising all its power to eliminate the Baloch nation right under the nose of these International Institution but they still have a soft corner for such a state. The statement of Hyrbyair Marri published on Daily Tawar Balochistan further read: “Pakistan doesn’t need Baloch but their need is Baloch land and resources; if International Community terminates their support, stop backing the occupying state and end advocacy in favour of Pakistan then I believe it [Pakistan] doesn’t have enough strength and courage to sustain its occupation on Baloch land. Whenever in the world the situation deteriorated and resembled the situation of Balochistan; all these Human Rights Institutions, UN, EU, International Court & Amnesty International intervened immediately to stop the genocidal policies of the invaders/occupiers. Had the International Community intervened in Balochistan to stop Pakistan from committing genocide of the Baluch people today there wouldn't have been bloodshed in Balochistan”.

Further expressing his anger over the silence of International Humanitarian Organisations Mr Marri said “Today where my nation is receiving decomposed and bullet riddled bodies of Baloch activists, streets of Balochistan are being washed with Baloch blood, and the Punjabi Death Squad load their guns to kill more youth from my people, the army cantonments in which Baloch activists are suffering extreme torture is greater than what the prisoners in Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo Bay are experiencing; these heinous crimes being carried out just meters away from the huge mansions where these so called Human Rights Defenders reside, yet they don’t see or hear the crying and protesting families of the missing persons on foot paths almost in every city in Balochistan. Pakistan is indiscriminately killing Baloch educated Baloch youth, teacher, lawyers, poets, political activists and common civilians in an attempt to silent the Baloch National struggle; despite all these mass killings the International Institutions have shut their eyes and ears . The champions of Human Rights cannot see anything else in Balochistan but the FESTIVAL SHOW of falling dead bodies of Baloch activists. Unfortunately, the International Organisations are backing the occupying states as well as justifying their atrocities and labelling the voice of occupied Nations as terrorism”.

In relation to Balochistan the International Community is contradicting its own passed humanitarian laws and International principles by supporting the occupier and suppressing the voice of the occupied. He said the International Court of Justice have not taken any notice of Pakistan’s atrocities against Balochistan nor did the UN, EU and other International democracies played any honest and equal role to resolve the Baloch issue. “If the role of International Institutions is to strengthen the oppressors and weaken the oppressed Nation then in such conditions, at least, they have no ethical and moral right to work in Balochistan; Baluch Nation has the capability to carry out their National struggle and face the enemy. The presence of these Institutions is becoming a hurdle in the way of our struggle. It is useless to expect justice and help from these organisations as they are silent on regular falling bodies of Baloch people – to trust them is like crying before a blind person”.

Mr Marri stated that “The Baluch cannot trust these International Organisations until they bring a positive change to their policies and behaviour toward the occupied or enslaved Nation. The Baloch are defending their homeland and struggling for National their identity; if they [International Organisations] are not ready to support us [the Baloch] and don’t condemn the mass custodial killings of Baloch activists then it is better for them to leave Balochistan so that Baloch nation can defend themselves better.”

The Baloch leader said that Pakistan army and the rest of state machinery is busy in crushing the Baloch nation, mostly Pakistan’s current Interior Minister Rehman Malik, who is at the forefront to order mass killings in Balochistan and Pakistan secret agencies are operating with his consent and permission. On his orders they are killing Baloch activists in custody and dumping their bodies away.

“Rehman Malik is a permanent resident of Britain; it is the moral responsibility of the world and the British authorities to question him for directly inciting and ordering the security agencies for carrying out the genocide in Balochistan. Malik should be brought before the International Criminal Court for cases of enforced disappearance and kill and dump policy in Balochistan because the FC (Frontier Corps) is involved in abducting, torturing and killed and dump of Baloch activists the FC works under Home Department and this department takes directions form Rehman Malik”.

He also said that Aslam Raisani, Zehri brothers and some other called Nationalist Baloch leaders are also equally responsible for the current bloodshed in Balochistan.

The Baloch leader further stated that history confirms that in the final days of Bangladesh’s struggle for liberation Pakistan has used the same methods killed and dump of the intellectuals, teachers, singers, students, doctors, physicians and journalist to eliminate the most enlighten section of the nation. Pakistan is repeating same crimes against humanity in Balochistan. Despite such barbarism the Bengalis have succeeded in gaining their freedom. Similarly, the British have recruited large number of Indian youth in Army whereas British were very less but ruled the entire India because they had occupied key posts. When the Indian nation became aware they started struggle against them but the British before leaving had robbed India.

In the end he said that Baloch Nations is aware of the fact that the path of freedom is full of difficulties and in near future the Nation will face further challenges. Baloch Nation is psychologically well aware and ready to face tough time ahead that is why it is impossible for Pakistan to stop the caravan of liberation with the sheer use of force and barbarism.

Three more bullet riddled bodies found in Balochistan as Pakistan continues its kill and dump policy

Occupied Balochstan: Three bullet-riddled Baloch activists have been found in different locations of Balochistan between Sunday night and Monday morning.

The body was taken to Bolan Medical Hospital for autopsy, where the victim was identified as Abdul Jabbar son of Muhammad Baksh Lango. He belonged to Manuchar tehsil of Kalat district. Hospital sources said that the victim was shot in the head, which caused an instant death.

“A letter was found from the body in which his name was written,” police said. A case was registered and investigations were underway.

Pakistani secret agencies abducted another Baloch from Hub town

Occupied Balochistan,HUB:Abid Basheer resident of Pasni, another victim of abduction by the Pakistani intelligence officials. On his way to Karachi from Pasni, Abid Basheer was abducted from Hub Chowki. According to reports, Abid Basheer s/o Basheer Omer travelling to Karachi in his private vehicle along with his cousin Dad Baksh were stopped by the Pakistani intelligence officials in Hub Chowki also known as Gateway of Balochistan. His cousin was left unharmed.

Family and relatives of Abid Basheer are very concerned about his safety and have filed a FIR in a local Police Station in Hub Chowki. Many people believe the filing FIR against such abductions is useless as the intelligence officials aren't bond to any law in Pakistan.

There are over 8,000 "missing" persons in Balochistan. Very after Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik's threat of taking 'staunch' action against Balochs, the kidnappings and extra-judicial murders of innocent Balochs has increased overwhelmingly.

The Occupying States’ Ongoing Crimes in Baluchistan

In the artificially structured boundaries of the states of Pakistan and Iran one thing that has no value is human lives. Both states are equipped to their teeth with modern armaments, Jihadist mercenaries and a medieval religious creed. They have used this cocktail of destruction to justify their untold atrocities. The Baluch people under illegal occupation of these unruly states have been among those who have suffered the most. Many hundreds and thousands of Baluch political and social activists have been abducted, displaced, tortured, disappeared and killed by these occupying states.

Enforced disappearance has become the daily experience of Baluch people living under occupation of these Islamic fundamentalist states. Over 8,000 Baluch activists have been abducted and disappeared in Eastern occupied Baluchistan since the year 2000. Families of these victims are not provided with any information about the missing persons. The families are threatened by security forces with dire consequences if they highlight the plight of their loved ones. From the last six months Pakistani state and military establishment have altered their policy about the abducted Baluch political and human rights activists. They have been imitating the policy of their replica counterpart, the Islamic regime of Iran. Ever since its creation, the Iranian Islamic government has been employing the ‘kill and dump’ policy against many of its opponents.

As result of this policy from July 2010 up to the present day Pakistani military agencies have killed and dumped over 100 Baluch activists. The victims of this policy for the year 2011, which barely a month is passed, are over 15 persons.

On 3 January 2011 five Baluch youths after leaving a public meeting were followed and attacked by Pakistani agencies in Karachi. Faraz Baluch, a member of BSO-Azad died in hospital from his injuries and Bilal Baluch, Umair Baluch, Salman Baluch and Saddam Baluch were kept under intensive care and survived this vicious attack.

On 4 January 2011 Pakistani security forces abducted Haji Nasir, and two teenage students, Ehsanullah and Khair Jan in Gawader. On the same day the severely tortured bodies of two prominent young Baluch political leaders were found in Pedarak area of Turbat. The victims were identified as Qamber Chakar Baluch 24 and Ilyas Nazar Baluch 26. Both victims were MSc students and a member of BSO- Azad. Qambar Chakar was abducted by Pakistan secret forces before on 10 July 2009 but was released without any charges on 22 April 2010. He was re-abducted on 26 November 2010 from Shai Tump Turbat. Ilyas Nazar Baluch was a Journalist for a Baluchi language magazine Dhorant. He was abucted on 22 December 2010 from a coach at Badok near Pasni.

Mohammad Sadiq Langov was abducted on 12 January 2011 and the bullet-riddled bodies of two Baluch traders, Taj Mohammad Marri and Meer Jan Marri were found from Bal Ghatar area of Panjgur on 8 January 2010. Pakistani security forces shot dead Sarvar Jamaldini and injured his companion in the same day in Taftan.

On 15 January 2011 Hashim Baluch, another Baluch teenage student, was abducted from an internet cafe in Hub. In the same day the body of the teenage member of BSO-Azad, Zakaria Zehri was recovered from Soorab area of Kalat. He was only 15 years old and was missing for over a month. Another victim whose body was recovered on the same day was Ghulam Hussain Mohammad Hasani. His body was found under a bridge in Singdaas area of Kalat.

The body of Mumtaz Kurd was found in Mastung on 20 January 2011. The two bodies of Baluch missing persons, Ahmed Dad Baluch and Naseer Kamalan, were found near Syedabad 23 miles away from Ormara on 17 January 2010. Ahmed Dad Baluch was abducted on 3 October 2010 and Naseer Kamalan on 5 November 2010. Both victims were well known Baluch political leaders. Naseer Kamalan was a senior leader of Baluch National Movement and he was also an inspiring Baluchi language poet. On the same day of discovery of the bodies of these two Baluch political leaders, Pakistan Frontier Corps (FC) attacked Kashi Nulla area of Dera Bugti. During the attack they killed Shakeel Baluch and injured and arrested Gabro and Sabz Ali Baluch.

Pakistani security forces raided the house of Mr Awal Khan Bugti on 21 January 2011. As he was not at home at the time of the raid Pakistan military officials abducted his wife Mai Hanifa.

Mohammad Azam Baluch was abducted by Pakistani secret agencies around 20 January 2011 from Suraab and his bullet riddled body was found near Kalat in Marjan National Highway on 25 January 2011. On the same day Abdul Rauf Qambari was abducted from Wahero area of Wadh in Balochistan. Abdul Rauf is the cousin of Waheed Qambarani, a Baluch teacher, whose mutilated body was found a month earlier.

On Monday 24 January 2011 four more Baluch youths were abducted from Tasp area of Panjgur. They were named as Waqeer, Shamsheer, Sagaar and abdul Malik. These teenage Baluch students were released few days after suffering violent physical and psychological ordeal. A day earlier, on 23 January 2011 the body of Ali Jan Kurd was recovered from Aktharbad area of Quetta, the capital of Balochistan. He was abducted by Pakistan security forces on 23 November 2010 near Sibbi. Ali Jan Kurd was only 18 years old and was a regional president of Baluch Students Organization – Azad.

Two lifeless Baluch youths were recovered on Thursday morning of 27 January 2011 in Gwargo area of Panjgur. The youths were shot and severely tortured. One of the victims, Abid Rasool Baksh Baluch a 17 year student and member of BSO-Azad, was already dead but Nasir Dagarzai was still alive. These two Baluch students were abducted along their fellow students Mehrab Baluch and Abid Saleem Baluch from the residence of Naser Dagarzai Baluch on 23 January 2011.

On 4 February 2011 three bodies were recovered from Khuzdar. The victims were identified as Hamid Issazai, Lal Khan Sumalani and Mir Khan Sumalani. Few days earlier also, on 1 February, the body of the Baluch popular singer Ali Jan Issazai was discovered in Kanak area of Khuzdar. Ali Jan and Shahzad Nadeem were abducted by Pakistani secret agencies from a hotel in Quetta on 10 January 2011.

The occupying states have increased their systematic brutality against the Baluch to an alarming level. Baluch children are not even spared from the wrath of the fundamentalist states of Iran and Pakistan. In the Western occupied Baluchistan, Amin Noraee a 16 year student was killed by the Islamic regime of Iran security forces in 1980 in Sarawan. Another teenage Baluch political activist, Khosro Mobarki, was arrested and after enduring months of torture was executed in 1981. In March 2008 Iranian security abducted Ebrahim Mehrnehad age 16. Ebrahim is the brother of Baluch journalist and civil rights activist Yaguob Mehrnehad who was executed by the Iranian government on 4 August 2008. Another Baluch child who has been abducted by the Islamic regime security forces is Mohammad Saber Malk Raisee. At the time of his arrest on 24 September 2009 he was only 16 years old.

In the Eastern occupied Baluchistan the Pakistani rulers have launched an open war against the Baluch youths and children. Large number of Baluch political and human rights activists who have been made disappeared tortured and killed have been among Baluch children.

In addition to the names of the Baluch youths cited above, Pakistani security forces abducted 17-year old Jamal Baluch on 4 October 2010. He was injected with unknown substance and subjected to extreme torture to such an extent that he has become partially paralyzed.

Abdul Majeed Baluch, a member of BSO-Azad was abducted by Pakistani Frontier Corps on 18 October 2010. Pakistani security forces murdered him and dumped his tortured body in the Koshak River at Khuzdar district on 24 October 2010. Another Baluch child and political activist, Mohammad Khan Zohaib was abducted in July 2010 by the same agencies. His mutilated body was found in Khuzdar on 20 October 2010. They were both 14 years old.

The house of Mir Ayub Gichiki was attacked by occupying security forces on 1 December 2010. In the attack Pakistani forces killed five Baluch political activists in the house. Among the victims were two of Mr Gichiki’s teenage sons, Murad Jan and Zubiar Gichki.

This policy is the natural outcome of the forceful occupation of Baluch homeland and the resistance of the native Baluch against occupying states. The most valuable assets of a society are its inspiring and forward-looking children. Premeditated and systematic infliction of pain to the tender body of a child and then murdering him or her in the most gruesome way, by organised state sponsored military forces, is only done and justified by these and similar occupying fundamentalist fascist states. We urge all Baluch to recognise the gravity of situation in Baluchistan and get united to put an end to occupying state barbarism against our people and children.

We should prepare for more difficult times ahead: Bashir Zaib Baloch

Occupied Balochistan: The chairman of BSO – Azad Comrade Bashir Zaib has said that the “Kill and dump” policy of the state is furthering the resolve of Baloch Nation and adding to their hatred toward state (Pakistan) and dominant Nation Punjabi. The ongoing abduction of Baloch activists and under-custody killings are reminder from the occupying state that Baloch Nation and Pakistan (Pakistani Nation) have no relationship and the invaders only want the Baloch land and this clear message will be fertile for National liberation movement.

Sangat Qambar Chakar Baloch, Zubair Baloch, Sami Baloch, Kamran Baloch, Ilyas Nazar Baloch, Majeed Baloch, Asim Baloch, Zakaria Baloch, Kamalan Baloch, Ahmadad Baloch and other martyr friends have sacrificed their lives for a great cause; they neither submitted to the enemy nor sold their loyalties. In fact they faced all the difficulties with courage, bravery and put their names in the books of great personalities of the history.

The state Intelligence agencies by resorting to violence against Baloch political activists have earned the hatred of each household in Balochistan instead of putting terror in their minds and hearts. He said that Baloch political activists who believed in democratic and political struggle are now being forced to adopt guerrilla ideologies because the regular abductions, torture and humiliation by state forces have left them with no other options.

Comrade Bashir Zaib further said that there will be more challenges for the Baloch in future. “It is our faith and conation that we will overcome all the challenges of the enemy and meet the expectations of Baloch Nation and of those mothers whose loved ones have been murdered”. He said that National awareness about freedom and the increasing number of ideological friends illustrates that Baloch Nation will be victorious. “The victory will be of those who are practically fighting against enemy, those whose loved one have been martyred, those who are suffering torture in torture cell and secret dungeons of enemy including the leader of BSO – azad Zakir Majeed, Comrade Qayum Baloch, Dr Deen Mohammad Baloch , Jalil Reki, Ghafoor Baloch, Abid Shah and thousands of other sons of soil. The enemy, their agents and their families will suffer disgraceful defeat because they put their loyalties, respect, tradition and faith under the feet of enemy for the sake of money and incentives.

He said to defeat the enemy and to become victorious we have to give more sacrifices and prepare to face further challenges. “We have to fully be ready to face difficulties in coming days because we cannot and should expect any decency, kindness and justice from an uncivilised and barbaric enemy – they will continue to commit the genocide of Baloch people. Their (Pakistani state’s) death squads will kill hundreds of innocent Baloch children, women and elderly; in fact they have already started the killings (under custody).

The struggle for liberation instead of weakening will intensify with the help of Baloch masses and with improved strategies. He stated that pro-independence political powers (Parties) should adopt revolutionary policies against the occupying forces and intensify the National awareness work within their circles.

Policemen killed and several taken hostage in Balochistan during clashed with Baloch fighters

Occupied Balochistan: Five policemen have been killed in an overnight clash with unidentified gunmen in Balochistan on a highway in the Mach area after the kidnapping of a top administration official in the region.

Bramdagh Bugti seeks political asylum in Switzerland

* BRP spokesman confirms asylum request being processed by Swiss authorities

Occupied Balochistan:Nawabzada Bramdagh Bugti, leader of the Baloch Republican Party (BRP), reached Switzerland where he sought political asylum.

This was disclosed by Mir Sher Muhammad Bugti, the spokesman of the BRP, in a telephonic message to this scribe from an undisclosed location.

He said that Bramdagh Bugti was safe and remained underground for sometime following the assassination of late Balach Marri and avoided contacting people for security reasons.

Sher Muhammad Bugti said that Bramdagh will seek political asylum in Switzerland and he had filed an application with the relevant authorities, which was being processed.

“He will continue to remain in contact with the UN and other officials exposing the massive human rights violations in Balochistan,” Sher Muhammad Bugti said.

He advised the BRP leaders, workers and activists to continue their struggle so that the mission of the “martyred” was achieved.

The government and its spokesman had been persistently claiming that Bramdagh was in Afghanistan and was leading the Baloch insurgents from somewhere in that country. His issue was taken up with the Afghan President Hamid Karzai, during his last visit. The Afghan president promised to look into the matter.

Bramdagh constantly denied the claims made by some of the TV anchorpersons that he was in Afghanistan, and claimed that he was somewhere in Balochistan, among his people, waging a struggle.

A few days ago, Nawabzada Hyrbyair Marri was also given political asylum in Britain on an order from a British court.
