Pakistan occupied Balochistan’s total area is 347,190 km (134,051 square miles). According to government figures 2009 estimates, Balochistan has a population of nearly 10 million this, however, is a guesstimate because there has been no proper consensus in Balochistan. The Baloch homeland is bordered with Iran in the west, Afghanistan and the North West Frontier Province to the North, Punjab and Sindh in the East. South of Balochistan is bordered with the Arabian Sea. There are 32 districts in Balochistan which include 1. Awaran. 2, Barkhan. 3, Bolan. 4, …

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. Secondly it [Pakistan] will be exempted from having any influencing on the Taliban. It is clear that the US or Afghanistan cannot ask Pakistan to help them to start negotiations …

By Saleh Mullazai Baloch

Human beings have a bad habit called – greed – and the more power and wealth they get their desire to become further rich or stronger will never end. A mother can never see her child in pain and difficulty. She will do her best to see her son growing healthy and wealthy. She likes the best for her son rather for herself.

My topic is not regarding a human or one particular person. It’s about a national issue which was raised years back and has reached at …

By Ramen Baloch

Currently Baloch politics is going through extreme debate between different groups, organisations and schools of thought due to conflicting ideas, malpractices and mismanagement some people who claim to be part of liberation struggle yet want to promote their own agendas. The signs of these conflicts first appeared in late part of the last decade when different groups indulged in concealed actions to undermine the performance and effective operations of a Baloch organisation that initiated and leads the current struggle. These problems remained hidden from the eyes of Baloch …

By Athithan Jayapalan
On 14th August when Pakistan celebrated its Independence Day, pro-Baloch independence parties and organizations boycotted the occasion, marking it as Black Day. Subsequently black flags were hoisted on houses and people donned black armbands. Braving the Pakistani military occupation the Baloch people reiterated their national aspirations and commitments. The Baloch nation in the diaspora and in the occupied homeland while protesting the Pakistani Independence Day, also vividly commemorated their own day of independence on 11 August with a renewed pledge to continue the struggle for national liberation …

Pakistan – Planet Earth’s Terrorism Factory

521c37f9-886f-de50 Saturday, August 16th, 2014 11:13 pm

By Shawn Forbes
On August 14th 1947, Planet Earth established its first terrorist factory. Soon after British Colonial rule in the Indian subcontinent came to an end the nation of Pakistan was founded. A country was established based solely on religious beliefs, its borders drawn by foreign hands with the blood of the ethnic and religious minorities of the region. The ensuing bloodbath became of the most brutal in all history. Nearly a million people are estimated to have been slaughtered in the newly created Pakistan. To this day Pakistan …
