Dr. Naseem Baloch, chairman of the Baloch National Movement, has spoken out against China’s expanding presence in Balochistan, citing it as the biggest enemy of Balochistan. According to Baloch, China is making strides to solidify its foothold in Balochistan, aided by Pakistan. Moreover, Baloch says that China seeks to establish a bloc but lacks experience, and the world cannot collaborate with it based on its methods.
He expressed these views during a meeting with the cabinet members of the BNM Zirwan zone.
According to Dr. Naseem Baloch, while there are signs of change in the region, it is essential to note that change does not always have adverse effects. However, he pointed to Pakistan’s deteriorating economic and political conditions, with no sign of political stability. He added that the weaknesses of the state present us with opportunities to enhance our performance.
According to him, it was analyzed that establishing the Taliban government in Afghanistan would worsen the situation for the Baloch, but Pakistan’s analysts and rulers lack understanding of the Baloch and the Baloch movement. The Baloch movement does not owe its existence to any external force but originates from the legitimate desire of the Baloch nation to live free and with dignity. The authorities in Pakistan have misunderstood the situation and have been inconsistent in their policies toward the Baloch for the past 75 years. The inconsistency in their policies reflects the inability of Pakistan’s think tanks to provide a stable and consistent approach to the matter. The continuity in our policies and the consistency with which we are moving forward results from our sacrifice and institutional politics.
The chairman emphasized the need for the Baloch nation to maintain continuity in its struggle for freedom. He urged the movement workers to increase their numbers with like-minded individuals to ensure the stability of their efforts. Our relentless determination will ultimately compel the enemy to accept our freedom.
He stressed that institutional-based politics is crucial for maintaining stability. The freedom organizations, including BSO Azad, BNM, and others, have strengthened themselves by building institutional foundations, resulting in their current position.
Acknowledging the efforts of Zirwan Zone’s associates, he expressed satisfaction with their performance and appreciation for their regular updates to the center regarding their activities. However, he also emphasized the need for continuous advancement in all sectors and moving toward improvement.
He said BNM stands on its foundations but has the right to express its views within the Baloch movement. However, he also emphasized that if any action is deemed detrimental to the movement’s interests, we have the right to discuss it with other organizations. Still, we will not participate in any media propaganda, even in case of an error by us or other organizations. He expressed satisfaction that BNM’s position today is one where they have established links with other organizations.
Dr. Naseem highlighted the importance of organizational discipline, which should be applied equally to all members. He stated that disciplinary action is necessary to maintain discipline among the organization’s members and remind them about discipline’s importance. He also noted that disciplinary action should be included in the organization’s political training.
During the meeting, he responded to the participation’s questions by stating that Our struggle is multi-dimension while we discuss human rights in front of human rights institutions, but our goal is to achieve national freedom, precisely the recognition of Balochistan as an independent state.
Dr. Naseem additionally noted that the right of self-determination is acknowledged in the United Nations’ laws and equates to freedom. He clarified that they are not advocating for a new country, as Balochistan was previously an independent nation before Pakistan occupied it. As such, they oppose this occupation.
Dr. Naseem Baloch pointed out that before the session, the party members had created a road map which had received input from several senior members. Fortunately, the road map was immensely endorsed when the councilors presented it in the session. This led to the establishment of several party institutions. We strive to ensure that the incoming leadership receives a comprehensive roadmap and a team. Instead of beginning anew, it helps them to advance.
“The stability and growth of BNM are directly linked to strengthening the Baloch national movement. BNM is not a separate entity from the movement itself. BNM’s consolidation effort does not reflect thinking for a group; rather, it exemplifies our dedication to cultivating institutional and organizational consciousness.” stated Dr. Naseem before concluding the meeting.
He highlighted the remarkable progress made in various sectors and noted that its benefits are being felt at every level. But we must always look forward and progress in all directions. To achieve this goal, all workers should play a role in advancing progress instead of rolling it back. The proposals presented today must be implemented by all of us together.
