Balochistan conflict is not an internal issue of Pakistan because Pakistan is a foreign invader, which has occupied sovereign Balochistan at gunpoint. Since 1948 Pakistan has been mercilessly killing innocent Baloch men, women, and children. Pakistan has also been continuously using indiscriminate and disproportional force against our people including use of fighter jets and heavy weapons. We Baloch have never accepted Pakistan hence Pakistan has no right to term Baloch national liberation struggle as its internal problem.
The UN and International Community should help the Baloch to bring Pakistan to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and International Criminal Court (ICC) to hold Pakistan accountable for illegally occupying Balochistan and committing crimes against humanity against Baloch people. Because Pakistan joined UN on 30 September 1947 but after only six months Pakistan violated United Nations charter’s clause 4 of the article 2 by attacking the sovereign state of Balochistan.
The UN’s charter’s clause 4 reads as following: “CHAPTER 1, ARTICLE 2, CLAUSE 4: All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations.”
Narendra Modi the Prime Minister of India has made a courageous decision to talk about human rights violations in Balochistan. His decision shows that India is a modern, democratic and responsible country, and it values human rights and wants to play a significant role to counter religious terrorism in the region. I suggest that in an independent Balochistan the names of Roads that the occupiers have named after themselves such as Jinnah Road, Fatima Jinnah Road, Shahra-e-Liaqat, Shahra-e-Iqbal and Fort Sandeman Road etc should be renamed with the names of Baloch martyrs, dedicated Baloch activists and international friends of Balochistan. There are four names that I suggest Balochistan’s roads should be named after. These friends of Balochistan are; American representative Mr. Dana Rohrabacher, Afghan leader Mr. Hamid Karzai, Indian leader Mr Narendra Modi and Afghan leader Mr. Amrullah Saleh. This is to honour their courageous decision to support the Baloch struggle – and they have also raised awareness of the occupation of Balochistan in their own countries.
