Quetta :

The central vice chairman of BNM (Baloch National Movement), Saeed Yousaf Baloch, has resigned on Wednesday, saying that Party’s policies are unclear on several issues including Balochistan Liberation Charter and holding 13 November as the Baloch National Remembrance Day of martyrs of liberation.

He said in 2007 after retiring from Baloch Student Organisation, he agreed with the aim & objective of BNM and joined it under leadership of Shaheed Ghulam Mohammad Baloch. “As a humble worker of the party I fulfilled my responsibilities and during the seventh council session in Malir, Kulachi (old name of Karachi), I was elected as the Senior Joint Secretary. Under the inspiring leadership of Shaheed Ghulam Mohammad BNM was becoming a revolutionary and ideal political forum in Baloch masses. However, the state was suffering from psychological defeat because of GM Baloch’s revolutionary determination that is why the heart-breaking incident of Murgaab happened and the pioneer of party and our brave leader was physically separated from us – the murder of Shaheed Ghulam Mohammad and his two friends was big setback for the party.”

Apart from romanticism some friends insisted that after GM Baloch there were no crisis in the Party but the stark reality is crisis engulfed the party after murder of GM Baloch. Asa Zafar was unable to lead the party towards the right direction and on several occasions he went against the constitution of the party. That’s why dedicated workers and cadres have decided to reshuffle the party to make it more organised and active. Hence they decided it was important to hold the eighth (8th) council session of Party.

Mr Baloch said, “The eighth historical council session was held in Jhao, Balochistan where party activists had worked tirelessly to arrange the three-day session. Different agenda were brought forward during the session including national, regional and international situations, and political and economic policies were also discussed. After the successful eighth council session the Party was handed over the new leadership and I was given a heavy responsibility.”

He said the National Council of party along with passing other foreign policy matter has passed a resolution to recognise Hyrbyair Marri’s service to Baloch freedom movement abroad and declared him as the collective representative of Baloch freedom struggle on international level. It was apprised that Hyrbyair Marri is living in exile for national cause and he is not just an individual but the representative of national struggle. This decision was publish on media as well. However, later on some friends deliberately and in secrecy have sabotaged this unanimous decision and violated the principles of the national council by deleting this resolution.

He said some parties affiliated with BNF (Baloch National Front) praised this action of BNM whereas the secretary of information of BNF, Wahab Baloch, informed media about this decision due which a specific lobby has expelled Wahab Baloch from Baloch National Front without holding any formal meetings and decision of the BNF. Along with Wahab’s Baloch Rights Council the Baloch Watan Movement and Baloch Bar Council were also forcefully ousted from Baloch National Front.

He further said BNF was going through a provisional process which could turn into a single party in future but this process was curtailed and the only national institution for Baloch unity ‘BNF’ was divided. First time the Baloch were trying to work together on a single platform and efforts were being made via this platform to unite all Baloch political parties and armed groups under a Supreme Council. He said it was a hasty decision to expel the allied parties from BNF. The party’s Central Committee was not taken into confidence in this regard. According to Saeed Yousaf Baloch before taking any such decision this issue should have been raised in Central Committee meeting to save the BNF from breaking up.

Saeed Yousaf Baloch said, “I have informed the Party’s Secretary General about my point of view but my opinion was regarded as interfering in the affairs of Baloch National Front. In the next central community meeting the SG got a resolution passed from Central Committee which barred me from speaking to media about this issue. I was shocked that the CC too colluded with the SG and approved his agenda knowing that fact that it was against the Party’s constitution. As the senior vice chairman I remained silent and the reason for my silence was to avoid further internal division in Party.

BNM is the party of martyrs including: Shaheed Ghulam Mohammad, Lala Munir, Rasool Bux, Naku Faiz, Razzaq Gul Agha Abid shah, Samad Baloch, Comrade Qayum Baloch and Nasir Kamalan’s ideology and blood has enriched this party. Our several volunteer friends have sacrificed their lives from this party’s platform.”

He said personally he was against lobbying inside party or dividing the party and considers it a national crime, that he would not consciously be part of any such action which may harm party’s internal unity. “That’s why in my point of view resignation was the final resort because I could no longer perform my work freely under any lobby,” said Mr Baloch.

He said soon he will decide his future strategy and from a pro-freedom forum he will continue the philosophy and ideology of Shaheed GM Baloch and thousands of other Baloch martyrs, and to fight the case of enforced-disappeared Baloch activists.

Expressing his view on Balochistan Liberation Charter he said, “After reading the document of Liberation Charter, I have come to the conclusion that it is a plan for the attainment of an independent Baloch state. He said Baloch leader Hyrbyair Marri has been representing the Baloch national cause in an effective way from past fifteen years on international level. He said he recognises his [Mr Marri] service and would continue to politically and morally support him on all forums.” he added, “When we feel one’s acts are strengthening Baloch freedom struggle, it is our moral responsibility to directly support such acts.”
