Shaal: Secretary General of Baloch National Movement Dilmurad Baloch said that stopping the music concert in Panjgur calling it against tradition, is enough to justify our fears for years that Pakistan is pursuing a policy of using religion and Armed religious extremists against the national movement for its nefarious purposes. The occupying state is using religion to destroy, distort and erase Baloch culture, traditions and values. This is not the first incident of its kind in Panjgur; there, ISI-bred operatives in the name of Furqan-ul-Islam have attacked schools and tried to stop girls’ education.
He said that Altaf Sajid Academy was organizing a musical cultural program on September 24 in Panjgur. In the name of Ulemas, the government machinery and the death squad of the state forces intervened and not only stopped the music concert, but the government proxies also threatened to kill the organizers in a threatening video, calling it an attack on honor.
“If the so-called Islamic scholars talk about Islamic and Balochi traditions, they should first stand up against the brutality of the state of Pakistan. Its forces used to attack houses in broad daylight and abduct women, children, old people and youth. If they become champions and protectors of traditions, they should have reacted to the forced disappearance of Noorjan and the murders of innocent women like Malik Naz. We know they do not respond to these incidents because it hurts their masters. ” Says BNM Secretary General
He further said music and singers are essential in promoting language, traditions and culture. In an environment without information and awareness programs about the Baloch nation, Baloch civilization and culture are on the media. Conducting such programs play an essential role in cultural development. Stopping such programs is cultural genocide and part of Pakistan’s policy of genocide in various ways.
BNM Secretary-General said We appeal to the real Ulemas to play the role of Ulema-e-Haq against Pakistan for its crimes against humanity, including Baloch genocide, Baloch cultural genocide and instead of being used by Pakistan, be supporters of the Baloch national movement. We warn, if there is no national movement and national culture, it will be equivalent to our national death.
