Shaal: “After the Ziarat tragedy, where public resistance against state atrocities has increased, there has also been an increase in Pakistan’s aggression. There have been significant changes in the region’s situation and Pakistan’s economy is in a state of crisis. Under these conditions, we have to take decisions in line with the situation at the level of our organization and movement.” These views were expressed by Baloch National Movement Chairman Dr. Naseem Baloch while addressing the second central committee meeting of the party for the running term.
He said that the economy of Pakistan is on the brink of collapse and it is facing a decline in the value of rupees against dollars and lack of dollars to pay its dues, due to which various sectors of the state of Pakistan had been badly affected. To get out of this crisis, they want to use Baloch resources. We have to take important decisions to avert the exploitation of national wealth.
Dr. Naseem Baloch expressed his concern over the increasing trend of suicide in Balochistan and said that people were committing suicide in large numbers due to the situation in Balochistan. Many people in Balochistan hadsuffered from mental disorders and there was a shortage of psychiatrists in Balochistan. According to international standards, having one psychiatrist for every thousand people is mandatory, while in Balochistan there is not even one available for hundred thousand people. There are three or four doctors in the whole of Balochistan, one of whom is sitting in Turbat and the rest are sitting in a Shaal, to which the public have no access. We should play a role by assessing our resources and capacity to conduct awareness campaigns. Youth should not end their lives to get rid of their temporary sorrows. Our sorrows and difficulties are transient and will surely pass away.
He said that the most important thing is that we have to maintain unity and solidarity in our ranks. Leaders of FBM and BRP have given us positive responses for the collaboration on which we will further improve our contacts. Similarly, we should work together with the Pashtun and Sindhi nationalist parties. So that the world can see that Baloch and other nations are victims of Pakistan’s state oppression.
