Head of Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), and renowned Baloch leader Dr Allah Nizar Baloch has said that the world must realise now that Baloch’s struggle for independence is rightful and just.
The gold medalist doctor turned resistance leader’s statement comes as Balochistan is engulfed in anger over murder of at least nine forcibly disappeared persons in, what victim families are calling, a fake-encounter by Pakistani security forces.
In his Balochi statement on Twitter on Friday, Dr Allah Nizar said that after Baloch nation’s burial of bodies of extra-judicially killed missing persons, the world must realise that Baloch’s struggle for independence is just.
He added: “be it politicians or intellectuals, if they turn a blind eye [on situation of Balochistan] then they are answerable to their conscious.”
Paying obeisance to Baloch women protesting against the incident he said “salute to the mothers and sisters who have stood against the tyranny.”
Earlier in the week Dr Allah Nizar in another statement on Twitter had said that no power on earth can deny Baloch to wage a defensive war.
He also questioned silence of West with regards to conditions in Balochistan and said: “where is the civilized world United Nations, United States and world powers that have conditioned their foreign policy with upholding human rights?”
Referring to the Ziarat incident he said the “recent massacre of nine Baloch in Balochistan is reenactment of Bosnia all over again.”
Pakistan’s Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing for the Pakistani armed forces had claimed that their forces have killed nine BLA members during a operation in Harnai area. Pakistani army carried out the so-called military operation in Ziarat district and adjacent areas following the abduction and subsequently killing of an army colonel by Baloch “pro-independence” armed group, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA).
However, the families of the accused denied the allegations saying that those killed by Pakistan army in a “fake encounter” were already forcibly disappeared by the Pakistani law enforcement agencies. According to the victim families they had registered them in the list of Baloch missing persons and they have been protesting for their release or fair trial since they were allegedly abducted by the agencies.
