When a nation is in a state of war, every little moment is highly valuable for any change regarding the national struggle. The Baloch national struggle is going through this tense phase now. This phase strongly needs more attention and consideration and all with enough capable policies, which should reflect potential hope towards the end goal – the Baloch national freedom.
No nation has succeeded in achieving its end goal without mass mobilization for carrying on the national struggle. Following this reality, the Baloch national struggle has always felt the necessity of mass mobilization. And we are all well cognizant of the fact that achieving the goal of mobilization among the Baloch nation is as long and tough as a well-established, organized, and dynamic student organization and a mass party to do activity in relation to the actual struggle are out of sight.
Although the national liberation struggle is a historical process, its prerequisites are various, including resistance and violence. Resistance of all types, including political, economic, cultural, and armed resistance, is entirely based on the above-mentioned factors. To have these main and primary needs for struggle, BSO-Azad has played its more vital act, from working on the consciousness of Baloch students to the more demanding activities of public gatherings.
In addition, BSO-Azad has always remained consistent in producing cadres to strengthen the Baloch national struggle, for which the organization had to render plentiful sacrifices, be it a ban on the organization or disappearances and dumping of the bodies of organizational leadership and members. Even today, a lot of BSO’s leadership and cadres are in dark state prisons, including Zahid Baloch, Zakir Majeed Baloch, Asad Baloch, Shabbir Baloch, and many more. But the whole crackdown on the organization has not been able to weaken it down or liquidate it.
In fact, BSO-Azad has always been a source of production of leadership in leading the national struggle towards a bright direction of national liberation. The more demanding factors for any struggle in general, Baloch struggle in particular – which is not only undergoing slavery but is also in a very confined state of siege – are to determine new ideas in the day by day alteration in world politics and to equip the nation widely with all these factors which can be the source of carrying the struggle in the most modern way of struggle.
Every Council Session of BSO-Azad has been a part of a total shift in Baloch politics and its policies, strategies, and methodologies. Council Sessions not only bring a shift in political strategy and central leadership but also introduce new ideas with new planning to counter down the state’s tactics and to avoid any confusion and non-revolutionary thoughts among Baloch. It also discusses and tries to develop a strategy to vanish-out the State stratagems and the emergence of counter-revolutionary forces.
In the end, the ongoing 23rd Council Session of BSO-Azad will be a source of strength in the Baloch national struggle. It is because the previous leadership, who are passionate, farsighted and can catch on the issues very promptly, after completion of their tenure of student politics, will participate in the mass mobilization and mass parties. All these young minds will undeniably try their best to give newly productive and more creative ways and ideas to carry on the struggle in a way towards the end goal.
On a similar note, the upcoming young leadership, in its newly mindful energy, enthusiasm and passion, will lead the organization in such a way that the Baloch national struggle can keep up with the modern era. The 23rd Council Session of BSO-Azad will undoubtedly be a step forward for the Baloch national struggle. The struggle shall be able to achieve its ultimate goal of freedom, and BSO-Azad shall remain an eternal source of strength for the Baloch people until the national liberation is achieved.
