The Baloch continue to face the brunt of a full-scale army operation by Pakistan in Balochistan; and the people of Balochistan continue to bleed, suffer and mourn.
As a result of ongoing illegal military operations in Balochistan, the numbers of abductions and killings of Baloch people are increasing to an alarming portions day by day.
The Pakistan Army is aiding terrorist cells and it has continuously attempted to subdue the Baloch struggle for their rights and natural resources of Balochistan. Under media blackout, Pakistan military blatantly represses and kills the dissents voices in Balochistan at its will.
As so called Pakistani free media has compromised its responsibilities by turning a blind eye towards the injustices and atrocities against the Baloch. It is only Baloch social media that is raising the Baloch case and highlighting the atrocities Pakistan military doing on Baloch people.
Civil Baloch intelligentsia is the main target of Pakistan army including intellectuals, journalists, teachers, professors, lawyers, students, farmers, shepherds and Baloch political activities. Thousands of Baloch have been abducted by Pakistan army without any legal bases and they are illegally subjecting them to the most inhumane and disturbing methods of torture in military secret concentration camps.
Recent military operations in and around Sibi, Sangaan, Jalari and Dera Bugti are a blatant example of Pak army aggression where aged men, women and daughters and seven other civilians were killed during the operation with no reason at all.
During past 11 years, thousands Baloch enforced been disappeared by security agencies. thousands of family members of the unfortunate missing persons are waiting for their return. Pakistani Army and intelligence agencies are highly active in furthering, promoting and facilitating the growth of fundamentalism and construction of Madrassahs in Baloch areas in order to blunt Baloch people’s secular struggle for freedom.
The ultimate goal of Pakistan is to turn Baloch homeland into a breeding ground for religious radical elements thereby undermining the secular Baloch society and freedom movement with dangerous consequences for regional and world peace and stability. Instead of forcing Pakistan to account for human rights abuses in Balochistan, now, unfortunately, US is selling F 16 jets fighters to the Pakistani military. We all know that Pakistan uses these lethal weapons against Baloch and Pashtun civil population. Like before, current US military aid to Pakistan army would eventually be used against Baloch and Pashtuns pro freedom forces.
It is a sad and black chapter in the history that US weapons are being sold to Pakistan military which is the main terrorist and bully in the region. Retired Indian Gen Bakhshi said in a Zee news TV program that “Pakistani General Raheel Sharif was too clever; Before starting the so-called war, he told the terrorist groups to run away as they would start Zarb -e -Azb in Waziristan and the terrorists would safely escape into Afghanistan and others area.” It was Pakistan army’s one of biggest plans that it ever made. Despite of, all this Pakistani dishonesty, US still wants to sell eight F 16 Jets to its army. US must stop its support to Pakistan and rule back the sale of F 16 jets to the Pakistan and support Baloch liberation movement for peace and stability in the region.
