Balochistan has always been an attraction for superpowers for its strategic location and massive reserves of natural resources, be it the colonial era of 1700-1900 of Britain or post-colonial era of Pakistani occupation and the cold war between Soviet Union and USA.  The people of Balochistan have suffered for several centuries in the hands of colonizers and occupiers. Baloch conditions have gone from bad to worse after artificial states of Iran and Pakistan occupied Balochistan in 1928 and 1948 respectively.

Balochistan the untold story

Balochistan Monday, April 27th, 2015 07:37 pm 1 Reads

A Baloch student recently summed up Balochistan’s grievances before a civil society fact-finding mission by declaring: “We (the people of Balochistan) have not been neglected by the state alone; our compatriots in other provinces too have all along been indifferent to our plight. They do not care for us. They don’t even wish to understand our problems.”

The causes of the indifference the young Baloch was complaining of lie in the vested interest’s relentless efforts to prevent the people from knowing and understanding Balochistan and its …

A True Legend comes but only once in centuries.  A Legend means; one who makes history who do good for others who render sacrifices for their motherland or they make significant unique positive change that benefits the entire world.  A legend fights against injustice and slavery; creating awareness around the world about their nation and their language.

Balochistan was illegally occupied by Pakistan in 1948. Ever since, Balochistan’s resources have been plundered by the state of Pakistan at accelerating speed. The main beneficiary of this aggressive rip-off is Panjab and its ruling class, while Baloch are living in extreme poverty and hardship. Baloch are kept away systematically from effective education, health and basic necessities. They have been prevented from practicing and developing their culture. A fraudulent Pakistani curriculum has been imposed on Baloch. Their national heroes Chaker Khan, Hamal Jehaind, Balach, Naseer khan Noori were …

Freedom is only option for Baloch nation

Occupation or colonization of a nation has never been considered within the acceptable realm of democratic and enlightened norms. It is the most demeaning act that can easily quash the complete social and moral fabric of an otherwise progressive nation. It is correctly considered as the worst form of despotic measure that totally hinders and suppresses the advancement and progression of any society.

With tools such as corruption, injustice and introduction of social evils, the occupier curbs the innovative abilities of the nation it occupies.  An occupied nation becomes …

Regardless of the fact that Ashraf Ghani’s first priority is peace but his news strategy under which he wants to achieve peace is not viable at all. On top of Afghanistan’s all pending issues Pakistan is preparing two new challenges for Afghanistan. Firstly different groups of Taliban will be reorganised under the banner of ISIS.
