Colonial system of education makes the students mental patient: Chairman Sohrab Baloch

Colonial system of education makes the students mental patient: Chairman Sohrab Baloch

February 8, 2019

Quetta: Chairman Baloch Students Organization Azad Sohrab Baloch termed the suicide of Yousuf Pirkhani, a third year student, in Bolan Medical College (BMC) as a murder and added that state and its relevant institutions are busy in the struggle of expelling youth from the educational institutions under a conspiracy.

The administrations and teachers have adopted such a behavior with students which suffered the students to be in a state of nerviness, and this behavior has caused to increase the trend of suicide. The suicide incidences of the student of BMC Yousuf Pirkani, student of NFS Faislanabd Saifullah Baloch and student of Khyber Medical College clarify the point that the contractors of the colonial education system make students to suffer in mental pressure and in reaction to this pressure such dangerous incidents happen.    

Chairman further said that the murder of students for their stubbornness and ego in the department of professional education is the insult of this sacred department. The ill-treatment of the administration and teachers which are implementing over the policies of the state in BMC and other educational institutions is the symbol of danger for the bright future of the oppressed students.   

Chairman said to the Baloch students to promote the passion of solidarity and unity and struggle to fail the state policies. While appealing to the international institutions, he said that they should take notice of the oppressions over the Baloch students in Balochistan and play their role to save lives of the students of the oppressed nations.




Condemn the extrajudicial killing of Professor Arman Loni۔ BSO Azad

Condemn the extrajudicial killing of Professor Arman Loni, oppressed nations should struggle jointly against the state barbarism: BSO Azad

February 3, 2019

Quetta: The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) condemned the torture and extrajudicial killing of Pashtun Professor Arman Loni by the state institutions and added that the Baloch, Sindhi, Pashtun, Muhajir, Gilgitti and other oppressed nations are the victims of similar Pakistani barbarism.

The state is not only using its power to pressurize the political voice of the Pashtun nation, but also is involved in the Pashtun genocide for last 70 years. The state has converted the Pashtun land into a slaughterhouse and has promoted the religious extremism into the Pashtun land for distorting the thousands of years Pashtun history and civilization.

Today, the conscious Pashtun students and youth have adopted the peaceful way of protest for their national survival, but the state is making failed attempts to pressurize the conscious struggle of the Pashtun youth by its power. The history is evident that the imperialist powers have always faced defeat before the national struggles.

The Spokesperson said that the Baloch has been facing enforced disappearances, mutilated bodies and targeted killing types of oppression and barbarism for the defence of its identify and motherland for the last 70 years, but as an oppressed nation Baloch has never accepted the state occupation.  

Before this, the state has ruthlessly killed the teachers of Baloch nation in the wake of their political struggle and voice raised for their national survival. Professor Saba Dashtyari, Zahid Askani, Professor Raziq Baloch, Master Baithullah, Ustad Rasool Jan and many others are the assassinated Baloch teachers.

The Spokesperson said that such incidents express the state savagery, wildness and barbarism. Pakistan is the killer of oppressed nations including the Baluch and Pashtun. The entire oppressed nations should adopt the collective struggle in order to get rid of this savage state.  

The Spokesperson said that the United Nations should make its member state accountable in the court of justice against the worst genocide of the oppressed nations and play its role for the protection of oppressed from the Pakistani barbarism.




President General Assembly should meet the victims of state atrocities: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) termed the visit of President General Assembly as welcoming, and expressed concerns that many other delegations have visited Paksitan before this visit which failed to stop the state barbarism in Balochistan.

The 2012 visit of United Nations (UN) Working Group to Pakistan was about the missing persons. That visit was aimed to make a conclusive report about the missing persons and human rights violations in Pakistan and to submit it to the UN Human Rights Council.

That delegation met all the stakeholders in Quetta. The report and proofs were presented in those meetings. Despite this all, the Pakistani atrocities increased in spite of decreasing in Balochistan.

Today, the human rights violations in Balochistan are on peak. State of Paksitan, disrespecting the human rights laws and with impunity, has kept its barbaric operations continued in Balochistan.

The aims and objectives of UN General Assembly holds the responsibility of protection of the nations and promises to play its due role in the political, economic, fiscal, social and the cultural matters, but on other hand Pakistan is insulting the UN charter.

The spokesperson said that forced annexation itself is a grave violation of the international laws. State atrocities are gaining intensity on daily basis since the forced annexation of Balochistan.  Legally, it was the responsibility of UN and human rights institutions to play their role for the stoppage of human rights violation since the beginning. But it is very regretful that the silence of UN and human rights institutions has encouraged Pakistan which has benefitted from this silence and made Balochistan its slaughter house.    

The spokesperson further said that the Baloch political activist, students, teachers, children, women and elders are the victims of state atrocious and barbarism. Common people are enforcedly disappeared, are torture inhumanly and then their mutilated bodies are thrown in the depopulated areas.

The civilian population is under the aggressive military operations and indiscriminate bombardment. Piousness chemicals are mixed in the water of canals which has affected the entire population with different diseases and also killed several among them.

During the military operation, the livestock are stolen and the complete population is set on fire including collapsing the residents of locals. Few years ago, several mass graves were discovered from Khuzdar and Panjgur areas of Balochistan, and recently several mutilated bodies were buried without DNA test.  Though, all this is the violation of human rights and UN aims and objectives, but despite this all, UN along with its subsidiary institutions and the international media have adopted a criminal silence.   

The spokesperson said that it is the obligation of UN General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espinosa to listen the stances of Baloch, Sindhi, Muhajir, Pushtun and other oppressed nations during her visit.

Including that she should visit the affected areas of Balochistan, Sindh, Pakhtunkhwa and Karachi, and prepare the report about the human rights violations without the Pakistani pressure and submit it to the UN General Assembly.




Burial of mutilated bodies without DNA identification test is a worrisome act: BSO Azad

Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad expressed concerns over the discovery of ten mutilated bodies on previous days from the surrounding areas of Quetta, and added that the state institutions are mentally torture the relatives of Baloch missing persons by declaring the mutilated bodies unknown and burying them without DNA identification test. 
Since last two decades, the discovery of mutilated bodies of missing Baloch children, youth, women and elders including the students has gained severe intensity in Balochistan. 
Before this incident, mass graves or bodies have been discovered in Balochistan. In December 2013, approximately 170 mutilated bodies were discovered from a mass grave in Tutak, Khuzdar which were buried without any DNA identification test and were declared unknown, while mass graves have been discovered from Panjgur, Dera Bugti and other areas of Balochistan too.
The spokesperson said that we have severe concerns that the mutilated bodies which were discovered from surrounding areas of Quetta are of the Baloch missing persons. Since last two decades, state institutions have enforcedly disappeared thousands of people from Balochistan which is still continued with intensity, while hundreds of mutilated bodies of the Baloch missing person have been discovered.
On the basis of continuous violation of human rights in Balochistan by the state institutions, we say reliably that the state, in order to hide its severe crimes to world, buried the mutilated bodies without the DNA test and declared them unknown.    
The spokesperson added that the issue of mass graves and mutilated bodies discovery is becoming much severed, while the silence of international institutions along with international media is further reinforcing the state barbarism.
Therefore, we appeal to the United Nations, international representatives and international media that they, despite being silent, should make a fact finding mission, send it to Pakistan, and under their own supervision, collect DNA data of the mutilated bodies recovered from mass graves in different areas of Balochistan.




Unveiling arrest of missing Hasnain Baloch from Karachi is a failed attempt of state to hide its crimes: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) condemned unveiling of missing Hasnain Baloch son of Abdul Qayoum Baloch’s arrest from Karachi and declaring him as a terrorist who was disappeared from Quetta by the state of Pakistan.
The spokesperson added that the state is implementing on its conspiracies which are aimed to close the doors of education to the Baloch youth by connecting them in the fake case in order to achieve its heinous objectives.
Connecting Hasnain Baloch, a matriculation student, with the militant groups on one hand is clearly aimed to keep the Baloch students at a distance to the educational institutions and on the other hand is to malign the cases of more 40,000 Baloch missing persons. Unveiling arrest of Hasnain Baloch from Karachi is in fact the part of the attempts to hide the state crimes.  
The extrajudicial killings and crackdown on the Baloch nationals, particularly the Baloch students, are the part of old policies of state, and now proving state’s illegal acts as legal by declaring the Baloch students as terrorists is also the sequence of the ongoing state policies.      
The spokesperson further said that the state secret agencies had enforcedly disappeared Hasnain Baloch along with his brother Jihand and father Abdul Qayoum from their residence in Quetta at 2 am on November 30, 2018.
A press conference was held on December 1, 2018 against the enforced disappearance of Hasnain Baloch and his brother in Quetta Press Club (QPC) by their family which was followed by a protest rally for their release on December 7, 2018; protest rally’s record is present in the media even. But despite all this, facts are hidden and a student is declared as a terrorist which is worst and inhuman act against the humanity.
The military and civil institutions of the state are united in attempts of hiding their crimes of enforced disappearance and extrajudicial killing of the Baloch nationals. The media, disrespecting its journalistic principles and values, are fulfilling their duty of becoming state collaborator in this heinous act.     
The spokesperson said that the international human rights institutions should take measures on immediate basis for the safety of the Baloch nationals and Baloch students in Balochistan, and should bring the state’s civil and military institutions in the International Court of Justice (ICJ), so that the Baloch nationals without any fear continue their political, educational, social and economic activities on their own land with peace.




State commits the economic murder of Baloch fishermen through exploitative projects: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad
(BSO-A) termed the Gwadar Port and the Expressway like exploitative state
projects as the economic murder for the fishermen, and added that the safe and
important hunting spots of the fishermen have been completely destroyed due to
such exploitative projects.  

The initial effects of the CPEC like destructive projects have
paralyzed the Baloch people economically that people are unable to manage meals
for themselves, and now the right to earn is also being snatched from the
Baloch people in order to completely destroy them under the umbrella of this
project.  The fishermen are facing difficulties since last year due to the
CPEC, Expressway project and the economic exploitation.

The coastal length of Balochistan is 770 kilometers, and the source of income of the people living on this strip is dependent on fishing. 80 percent poor people are linked with the profession of fishing for managing their meals of two times and for passing life, but the state is snatching the right of life from the poor and oppressed people under the shelter of its projects.

The Spokesperson further said that the day when this
exploitative project CPEC has begun, since then the difficulties of the
fishermen have greatly increased which caused the fishermen to stage a protest
camp with empty stomach for the last several months which is continued until
today.    

The state and its institutions are responsible for the economic,
social, educational and political exploitation of all walks of people including
the fishermen.  The state is promoting the policies to convert the Baloch
people into minority over their own land by using the excuse of development.
The state, under its policies of economic murder, wants to finish the Baloch
national identity by engaging the Baloch nation with different issues.

The Spokesperson said that
the fishermen, peasants, labors and people from other walks of life, with the
potential of social and political consciousness, have to increase the speed of
their national struggle in order to fail state’s filthy projects by
understanding the aims and objectives of the state tactics and exploitative
projects.




The Baloch Missing Persons Issue and Silence of UN

For last 2 months, Baloch mothers along with their infants and
children are protesting in front of the Quetta Press Club (QPC) for the safe
recovery of their beloved ones. Temperature in Quetta is dropping regularly
which is affecting the health of organizers as well as the participants.

In this blood freezing winter, people normally can’t sit in
their homes without heater, but the infant and their mothers, sisters, brothers
and the sympathizers are sitting in an open cold area at the token hunger
strike camp with their constitutional demand to present their disappeared
beloveds to the courts of law and not to abduct or torture them in secret cells
because disappearing a person is a collective punishment which is like dragging
the entire family beyond the bars too.

Education is one of the basic rights for every human being and
obviously a priority for the civilized nations. Primary education is further
important for strengthening the base for higher education, but the Baloch
children like Mahrang Baloch; daughter of abducted BSO Azad’s Central Cabinet
Member Naseer Baloch and Ansa Baloch are demonstrating in their most sensitive
phase of age.

Few days before they were afraid of facing camera, people and
media but now Mahrang and Ansa became the face of this issue. The protest
demonstrations and hunger strikes became the part of their primary education
which they couldn’t forget at any stage of their lives.

The action of abduction is a crime against humanity and
Pakistani security agencies and military institutions are committing this crime
on daily basis across the Occupied Balochistan without any fear of national and
international accountability, and this state crime with clear means come under
the jurisdiction of the Baloch genocide.

Due to the total media blackout in Balochistan, none of the
cases of enforced disappearances come under the media coverage, but the
international community and the international media should not deliberately
ignore the protesting children and mothers of the Baloch missing persons who
are demanding justice for a long time.

The Vice Chairman Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) Mama
Qadeer Baloch has been hospitalized due to extreme cold weather and he has been
strictly suggested to avoid sitting in cold weather further.

Despite this all, there is no hearing of the beloved ones of the
Baloch missing persons and the state of Pakistan is failed to give a serious
response to this peaceful protest of the Baloch women and children. 

It is very disgraceful to see the silence of United Nations (UN)
including the international human rights organization despite the exposure of
the war crimes of the UN member state Pakistan. If they continue their policy
of being silent spectators, then the Baloch missing persons’ issue will convert
into a regional humanitarian crisis which is not a good sign for regional
peace. 

Despite this all, BSO Azad appeals to UN and all other
international human rights institutions for taking notice of the Baloch missing
persons issue on immediate basis and taking concrete measures for its solution
within no time and play their due role for the safety of humans of the
Balochistan, otherwise the world in the history of human kind will sooner
witness the worst humanitarian crisis of the Occupied Balochistan just with
regrets.




Military institutions’ operations have increased instead of recovering the missing persons: Chairman Sohrab Baloch

Baloch Students
Organization Azad (BSO-A) Chairman Sohrab Baloch with strong words condemned
the given threat of serious consequences to the Baloch mothers and sisters
including Mama Qadeer Baloch who are sitting at the Voice for Baloch Missing
Persons’ (VBMP) camp.

He added that families
of the missing persons are demanding to the state institutions for the safe
recovery of their beloved ones while using different peaceful means of protest
under the flag of VBMP for last 10 years.

The missing persons’ families
say that if their beloveds are guilty of any crime, then punish them according
to the law. But this decade long peaceful protest has been neglected and the
state institutions, lost in their power, are expressing intransigence.  

Chairman Sohrab Baloch
said that the state’s military institutions have increased their operations
multifold. He said that more than 40,000 Baloch sons of soil have been
disappeared by the state military institutions.  

He added that the
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons and Baloch Human Rights Organization (BHRO)
have staged protest demonstrations and rallies against the increase in the
illegal action of the enforced disappearance of people from Balochistan.

Families have also done legal and lawful protest for the safe recovery of their beloved ones, but the civil and military institutions of the state have neglected  these demands and prefer the use of force instead which is a robbery of the oppressed nation’s rights.

Chairman said that the
families of the missing persons are sitting in front of the Quetta Press Club
(QPC) for the safe recovery of the beloved ones for last two months, but the
state institutions have completely neglected the peaceful protesting families
which have compelled them today to transfer their protest from QPC towards the
Balochistan Chief Minister House, and the families protested in the cold
weather of Quetta by establishing high level examples of courage and bravery.
But the state, which is afraid of the peaceful protests, threatened the families
of serious consequences and forced the families to end their peaceful protest
which is included in the serious human rights violations.   

He said that the state military institutions continues the enforced disappearance of the Baloch people on one hand, and the civil institutions using the language of military institutions are threatening the families of the Baloch missing persons of serious consequences on other hand. This behavior of the civil institutions shows that the civil and military instituters similarly think about the issue of Baloch missing persons.  

Chairman appealed to
the Baloch people to fully support the families of the Baloch missing persons
that the issue of the Baloch missing persons would be public with its right
means to the world.




The 20th December and International Human Solidarity Day

The 20th December and International Human Solidarity Day

There are about 17 Sustainable Developmental Goals which have been introduced by the UN to achieve a better and sustainable future for all.
The 20th December, a day of action to encourage new initiatives for the eradication of poverty, hunger and disease. We appreciate UN and international communities for their positive steps towards zero hunger and provision of good health services.
But the question arises here is that the word sustainable means ‘able to be maintained at certain level’, and for sure UN considered this certain level as vast level. So if we take that into our consideration, there must be eradication of poverty and health problem from the entire population of world.
So in this International Solidarity Human Day, our reservations must be clear to the world and UN that they should give some serious consideration to their plans.  According to the UNDP report, Balochistan is the poorest province of Pakistan with having the poverty index of 71%.
The MPA Sana Baloch of Balochistan in his last statement said that the people of district Kharan need good health facilities and he also shared some pictures at social media platform where people are compelled to cut trees to accomplish their needs while the land is the owner of the Sui gas on other hand.
The people of Raskoh and Chaghi are suffering from different kind of diseases including malnutrition. Chagai is the owner of Saindak and Rek-o-diq like projects ad it is also a well known place being the sight for Pakistan’s nuclear weapons tests which caused people of Chaghi to suffer from the cancerous diseases.
Polio, a viral disease which has been eradicated world widely except Afghanistan and Pakistan (mainly found in Balochistan). People of Bolan have been dying just because of the shortage of common medicines like Paracetamol, because Pakistan Army has imposed unannounced ban on the medicine supply to this area.
The area of Awaran is totally occupied by the Pakistan Army, but surprisingly the civilians are dying of gastritis, isn’t it so strange? At last, we request the UN to come with us for a visit o the areas of Kohlu where people of deprived of basic health facilities.
In main city of CPEC, the owners of Deep Sea of Gwadar are dying of thirst. The inhabitants of villages near Gwadar city are complaining of Thalassemia in their new generations, even they have no history of Thalassemia before in their families.
On 20 December, we as Baloch students remind you again to show solidarity with the Baloch people who need your actually solidarity.




The criminal activities of the state have suffered people to live in the environment of fear: BSO Azad

December 6, 2018

The criminal activities of the state have suffered people to live in the environment of fear: BSO Azad

Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) in an issued statement condemned the enforced disappearance of Baloch students, generation of environment of fear in the educational institutions and disrupting the daily living of the Baloch people including the students with strong words, and added that the powerful military institutions of the state in collaboration with the civilian institutions has kept the sequence of crackdown on the Baloch students continued.   
This crackdown is gaining intensity gradually. These criminal activities of the state institutions have made people of Balochistan to live with fear. On the previous days, a student of Bahauddin Zakria University, Jihand Bangulzai son of Abdul Qayoum, was enforcedly disappeared along with his brother Hasnian and father. While the first year medical student of Government Postgraduate College Quetta, Amin son of Abdullah, was abducted and shifted to an undisclosed location on the same day. Their whereabouts are still unknown.
On Wednesday of this week, several students which include Zareef Rind, Changez Baloch, Aurangzed Baloch and other several students have been disappeared forcibly by the state forces. Forceful disappearance of several students is a proof of generation of environment of fear.     
Before these incidents, the administrations of the Bahauddin Zakria University and the Neshtar University have decided to form the list of Baloch students and to send it to the state security institutions which clearly clarify that the civil institutions are fully supporting the security forces for destroying the career of the Baloch students.
Including all above, the security forces have demanded the list of the Baloch students from the hostel administration of the University of Balochistan. These all policies of state show that they want to keep the Baloch students in the status of fear, close the doors of education to them and to further strengthen its policies of prolong its occupation over the Balochistan.    
Neither the state of Paksitan is trying to generate the environment of fear in the educational institutions but also the Baloch people from all walks of life are being targeted which shows their implementing of policies of wrapping the entire Baloch society in the chador of fear.   
On previous days, the Ranger and white clothed personnel of the security forces have raided at several houses in the Lyari area of Karachi city and enforcedly disappeared three Baloch persons whose whereabouts are still not known.   
The Spokesperson further said that the token hunger strike camp of the families of the missing persons under the flag of the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) is continued for a month for the recovery of missing persons. In this token hunger strike camp, hundreds of families which are affected of the enforced disappearance are peacefully protesting in the cold weather with their children for the safe recovery of their loved ones, but the state’s legal and parliamentarian institutions are continuously ignoring them, and we condemn this ignorance in strong words.  
Ignoring the voice of the Baloch mothers and sisters by the Balochistan chief minister and the high level authorities by becoming the state machinery shows that they have nothing to do with the Baloch people, but on the other hand they are busy in belly-worshipping by becoming just the state machinery.
The spokesperson appealed to the global institutions and the international media to play their role to make reach the voices of the families of the missing persons who are setting in the token hunger strike camp to the international community, so that the Baloch people would be saved from the vandal activities of the state with the help of the civilized countries.
