Dr Murad Baloch, Secretary General of Baloch National Movement has strongly condemned the assassination of Bibi Kalsoom Baloch in Dazin.
In a press statement, Dr Murad Baloch said that the state of Pakistan wants to eradicate the idea of resistance from the Baloch nation by hurting the honour and dignity of the Baloch nation through a series of humiliating incidents and torturous murders.
Dr Murad Baloch said that after raiding Kalsoom Baloch’s house in Dazin, the members of state-backed death squad stabbed her in front of her little girls with knives when she screamed for help. After the martyrdom of Baloch daughter, her jewels were taken off and the house was lotted, such shameful and tragic incidents in Baloch society are the ominous face of occupation which Baloch people will not forget for centuries. Those involved in such heinous incidents have nothing to do with Baloch code of conduct and are barbarians far from humanity.
“The Punjabi state has adopted a strategy to counter the Baloch national struggle by systematic killings, enforced disappearances, demolishing the entire villages and by plundering of Baloch resources at the hands of the army and intelligence agencies, yet state has failed to counter the struggle. Following the failure of the state in this, the state has formed death squads of criminals and given free hand to them to dishonour the Baloch national dignity, play with their lives and still their property so that the national feeling and resistance in the society can be eradicated.” He added.
“But history has shown that oppression, violence and barbarism deepen the national feeling of slavery rather than reduce it, and it is this sensibility that gives strength and energy to the national movement.” He continued.
Dr Murad said that the incident of Shaheed Malik Naz and little Bramsh shocked all sections of the Baloch nation and a series of historic protests began. The foremost demand of the protestors is the elimination of these death squads from Balochistan. While the ongoing series of protests, another Baloch daughter was killed at the hands of death squads. It was a clear message to the Baloch from the state, that, the peaceful protests and slogans will intensify their actions rather than a ban on them. But it’s the misconception of the state that they can hide their war crimes under the umbra of death squads. Disgrace has become the destiny of Pakistan.
Dr Murad Baloch said, that we have to realize the fact that to crush the Baloch national movement, Pakistan is distorting our social values through multidimensional strategies and tactics to maintain its occupation and colonial rule. Death squads are the most valuable means to reduce the burden of direct accusations of Baloch genocide and war crimes of Pakistan at the international forums, but the Baloch nation has exposed Pakistan’s tactics to the world through its struggle.
Today, the voice of the Baloch is being heard all over the world that the state of Pakistan is using the Death-Squads as a tool in Baloch genocide and they are the state’s associates and equal partners in war crimes.
