Baloch National Movement’s Central Information Secretary Dil Murad Baloch disclosed the report of February 2018. While briefing on report, Dil Murad Baloch said Pakistani forces carried out 70 operations and raids in occupied Balochistan, in the month of February. During these operations and military raids 173 persons were forcibly abducted. He added, in this regard Pakistani forces themselves confirmed the abduction of 20 persons on 11th February and 11 persons on 24th February those were arrested as suspects, but none of them were produced either before the court or media.
He said that media as usual is playing the role of second pandal of state; despite the confirmation of picking up these 31 persons on two different occasions by security establishment, media is trying to strangulate the truth. Local and international media houses did not bother to question the well beings of those abductions which law enforcement officials themselves confirmed. He added, media without wavering from its old norms kept promoting state sponsored narratives.
Dil Murad Baloch reported the death of 14 persons, in which 6 were directly killed by security forces in different operations in the month of February. Among the dead one is Fatima Baloch who suffered severe wound in previous year of aerial bombardment; whereas reason of other 8 persons are not reported. Information Secretary informed, during operations Pakistani forces looted 80 houses, and 20 houses were burnt to ashes.
He further added, the Military personnel also looted herds, camels and donkey during operations. He also asserted that 3 houses and 4 schools were converted to military check posts; however overall 25 new check posts were established in the same month. Whereas 41 persons were released from torture cells who were abducted by intelligence agencies on various occasions.
While speaking on growing trend of religious fanaticism backed by Pakistani forces he said Lashkar-i-Kurassan and Pakistani military destroyed a Zikrana (worship place of Zikri community) in Shadikor. He also alarmed international community about shaping of such ugly religious terrorism backed by Pakistan in occupied Balochistan.
Dil Murad Baloch explained that Pakistan will continue its military operations and may relentlessly increase in the genocide of the Baloch people, if United Nations and other world bodies refrain from intervening in worsening situation of Balochistan. Pakistan is trying to crush Baloch issue unilaterally through use of military power and exacerbating its barbarities.
He reverberated that the existence of a nation and its geographic reality can’t be destroyed by military aggression and barbarity and genocide. Central Information Secretary argued that history confirms the fact that a conflict between two nations would never be sort out with unilateral aggression and use of power. Sooner or later Pakistan has to accept Baloch nation as a negotiating party. Dil Murad reiterated that a dream of peaceful continent of Asia would evaporate into smokes and the blood of innocent Baloch people would be spelled till Pakistan would not consider Balochistan as an occupied land and Baloch nation as a party.
While discussing about involvement of China in Balochistan, he said that the role of China is increasing in the mass murder of the Baloch people. China is an equal partner of Pakistan in war crimes committed in Balochistan. China along with China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and other exploitive projects to their completion, is aiding Pakistan in genocide of Baloch people which would be destructive and an alarming situation for entire region. He further said, however, Baloch nation solely dueling these evil designs of China and Pakistan. Whereas, Pakistan is violating all international laws; worst of all, the responsible organizations are silent on brazen violation of International laws by Pakistan.
The information secretary stated that there is multifold increase in cruelties and barbarities of Pakistan in different parts of Occupied Balochistan through military operations. Most of the areas of Balochistan: Bolan, Mustang, Kalat, Sibi, Shoran, Khuzdar, Gresha, Jahoo, Mashkay, Kholwa Awaran, Gichk, Gwadar, Pasni, Turbat, Mand, Dasth, Porom, Panjgur, Bulida, Kohlu, Dera Bugti and majority of the areas undergoing military operations. Pakistani forces and intelligence agencies are involved in the abduction of Baloch political and social activists, women and children, and their extrajudicial killings and burning of the houses. These brazen aggression of Pakistan Army and other security forces are reflection of its frustration and the ultimate defeat. He stressed Pakistan wouldn’t forget the ultimate success of oppressed nation in a lasting tug of war between oppressed and the oppressor.
