Baloch National Movement’s Chairman Khalil Baloch, in a statement, has said that the harassment of students of Balochistan University is an assault on our national honor and deeply targeted against our collective spirit. The Baloch will remember this for centuries and will take exemplary revenge from the state of Pakistan.
Chairman Khalil Baloch said: “I do not think it has affected some Baloch daughters; rather, it is an attack on the collective honor and dignity of our entire nation. “Pakistan has shown to us that it can go to any degree of lowness. Considering the historical background of Pakistan, the Baloch nation should bear in mind that this wicked enemy will commit further acts, and the only solution is to accelerate the struggle for national freedom.”
Chairman Khalil Baloch said that the Baloch had been fighting for their national dignity and survival for centuries, but to date, there was not a single event when Baloch nation dishonored the dignity of their bloodthirsty enemy. In wars with the enemy Baloch people would maintain and respect the values, and dignity of their opponents. Pakistan by committing such an obnoxious act had further strengthened our beliefs that it was also ignoble in the matter of respect and honor.
“I wish we could find an enemy who exhibited valor and bravery on the battlefield,” he said. But alas, our enemy went into the extreme level of impropriety and tried to trample our dignity, but the brave daughters of the Baloch people exposed the dirty face of the enemy to the world; The condemnation of the incident is a minimal degree of things. Pakistan converted the University of Balochistan into a torture prison. Hundreds of beasts (Army men) have been deployed there. For the past decade and a half, the youth of Balochistan are being arrested and shifted here and tortured inhumanly. Now Baloch daughters were sexually assaulted under this military siege.
Chairman Khalil Baloch said, “it was not the first incident of its kind. Apart from Balochistan University, such incidents have been happening at Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University, Bolan University of Medical and Health Sciences. But army personnel suppressed these incidents by threatening students with dire consequences in case of opening their mouth in public. As a result of this silence, enemy forces were emboldened, and I believe maintaining silence in such an incident is a national crime.”
He said that the colonial system of education will not promote modernity and critical thinking; rather it only produces parts for the running of its colonial rule. Hence Baloch nationalism is such a powerful ideology that the enemy’s malicious colonial system of education has failed to contaminate the minds of the Baloch youth. The youth also played a historic role in cultivating the national ideology within the colonial system of education. When all tactics of the enemy failed, most of the schools including the University of Balochistan were converted into military outposts. FC’s schools were opened in different areas, and military men harassed a girl sexually in one of these schools at Awaran.
Chairman Khalil Baloch said that Pakistan’s intentions are very clear with these disgusting acts. Pakistan’s main effort is to keep Baloch youth away from education. Their single purpose is to paralyze Baloch youth psychologically, so that they would not even be able to think about playing a practical role in the national struggle, and to force the parents to stop sending their children in this education system and send their children to extremist and fanatic madrassah where Pakistan is manufacturing robots for its proxy wars.
Chairman Khalil Baloch, at the end of his statement, said: “I believe that every individual of the Baloch nation will raise their voice against fanaticism, brutalities and lack of respect for human dignity in Pakistan, and play a vital role in exposing these before the world.”
