Editorial: In doldrums

  • Array

One thing is very much clear that Pakistan would reduce into several pieces. Time is unknown, but it will. Looking deeply into Pakistan, one can easily get idea of its partition as soon as possible. This would be only due to suffocating freedom voices. What the military of Pakistan is doing to suppress Baloch, Sindhi and Pashtoon belts, is a clear indication of dictatorship, and clear violation of human rights. The military is doing everything under its capacity, but freedom of freedom movements have never been gone under their power. Still hundreds of people are fighting for Baloch freedom, and will achieve it one day. Ahmar Khan, founding president of the American Friends of Balochistan said, “As I speak, Pakistan generals are killing the Baloch, dumping our bodies and shooting civilians from helicopters.” He also accused Pakistan forces of abducting, perpetrating the most dehumanizing torture like feeding feces to Baloch youth and even leaving feces in their mouths after torturing them to death. Like him, Head of Balochs Council, Dr. Shiraqa Baloch said since 1948, thousands of Baloch including women and children have been killed or wounded by Pakistani military. The minority celebrated their 70th Independence Day in Kabul, showing strong commitment to fight for freedom of Balochistan. The Baloch people say that they got independence on August 11, 1947 from the British Empire. However, in 1948, Pakistani annexed the provided. Soon after declaration of independence, the Khan of Kalat formed Balochistan’s House of Commons and the House of Lords. On 16th December 1947 Khan of Kalat called a meeting of both houses of Balochistan to discuss the possibility of joining Pakistan. Members of both houses rejected the idea, according to recorded history. However, Pakistan invaded Balochistan and took control and also imprisoned the Khan of Kalat and his family members within the palace. However, Afghanistan has never supported militancy and terrorist groups like Pakistan for achieving internal and external goals. But, the Afghan people thoroughly favor freedom of the suppressed ethnicities in Pakistan. Political and militant movements for independent Balochistan and Sindhudesh are speaking louder since longtime. Pashtoons, Baloch, and Sindhi ethnicities in Pakistan have been struggling to regain their historic identity and national sovereignty. On the other hand, as per Independence Act, there is no legislation regarding Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to be a part of Pakistan. The Faqir of Ipi in Waziristan launched movement for independent Pashtoonistan, and the first assembly of Pashtoonistan was held at Tirah Valley of Khyber Agency where Faqir Ipi was announced as first president of Pashtoonistan. Swat, comprising districts of Buner, Shangla, Chitral and Dir, northern districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were princely states which were forcefully merged into Pakistan. Since Pakistan has been engaged in suppressing of minorities, that’s why in every hook and corner of Pakistan there are regular freedom movements, seeking support of International Community against the Punjabi occupation. Pashtoon, Baloch and Sindhi leaderships of freedom movements repeatedly urged the International Community including Afghanistan, India, US, UK and EU to support them against Pakistani occupation and atrocities. So Pakistan is in doldrums. And its portion would be headlined soon, with leaving legacy of peace and prosperity to Afghanistan, and regional countries. The portion of Pakistan—mother of terrorists, is vital for the sack of peace.
