Incidents of targeting women and children are being increased in war-torn Balochistan: BSO Azad

Incidents of targeting women and children are being increased in war-torn Balochistan: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) said in response to the recent conducted military operations in Perandar area of Awaran that the incidents of targeting women and children are being increased in the war-torn Balochistan. The state forces are enforcedly arresting and disappearing women and children as the means of collective punishment. The rapid increase in such incidents has generated an environment of fear among the citizens of Balochistan.

The Spokesperson said that the state military institutions have conducted series of military operations on a larger scale in Perandar, Zelag and Dhal Bedi areas of Awaran. During the search operations, the state forces have violated the international laws, extrajudicially arrested 11 persons and have shifted them to an undisclosed location.

The victims of the Perandar enforced disappearances have been identified as Abdul Haye; Shehnaz, daughter of Abdul Haye; Farhad, one-year-old, son of Shehnaz; Sanam, daughter of Shehnaz; Nazul, another women; Ejaz, 10-year-old, son of Nazul; Mahdeem, 10-day-old infant.

On the other hand, Dr. Nazeer son of Esa and Shahbeer son of Ghulam Jan have also been enforcedly disappeared during the military operations in Dhal Bedi and have been shifted to an unknown location too.

The enforced disappearances of women and children, the violent incidents and massacre in Balochistan are one of the worst examples of the state aggression.

The Spokesperson said about the media that the so-called free and unbiased media in reality is working as a subsidiary institution of Pakistan Army. The biasness of media forces it not to report such heart wrenching incidents happening in Balochistan. While the champions of Baloch rights-the representatives of such parties which are present in parliament-have adopted silence over such barbarism which is continued in Balochistan because of the few timely privileges.

The Spokesperson said that the silence of the international human rights institutions is highly questionable because their silence is encouraging the state of Pakistan for further barbarism and violence. We once more humbly appeal to the human rights defenders and international institutions to immediately take actions and play role for the stoppage of enforced disappearances of women and children and usage of force against them.




The environment of Balochistan University is the worst example of the colonial era: BSO Azad

The environment of Balochistan University is the worst example of the colonial era: BSO Azad

Sunday, April 14, 2019

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad expressed concerns over the devastation of University of Balochistan and said that the Balochistan University is completely suffering of administrative, academic and educational crises, and the military institutions have seized all of its control into their hands.

The students are humiliated by using the excuse of security. The university has been converted into a big jail whereas the cafeterias have been closed and allotment of the rooms in hostels has been stopped while using the same excuse of security.

The Spokesperson said that being a student is like the selection of a dangerous life in Balochistan. Students of Balochistan face state barbarism from their homes till their educational institutions. The educational institutions play the basic role in generation and development of the human consciousness while students are also passed through the phases of research for the further improvement of social, political and economic systems, and students become familiarize to the debate and conversation like skills which provide the critical conscious that enables to give birth to the revolutionary movements against the outdated system, but the educational institutions of Balochistan—with the presence of military institutions and environment of fear—are making students as psychological patients.

Spokesperson further said that the environment of Balochistan University is the worst example of the colonial era. The student politics has been practically excluded from the university premises. There is complete dominance of the exhaust in university where no one exits to ask about the well being of the students.

In University of Balochistan, the selected persons of the military institutions have been deployed on the important designations and these selected persons just torture students mentally. The process of entry of students in the university till their classes has become the process is of their humiliation and mental torture.     

The spokesperson said that the state military institutions have seized the complete control of the university by using the excuse of security which has ruined the future of students, but it is very disappointing that the professors and lectures of university have become silent spectators despite the conversation of biggest university of Balochistan into a military cantonment. The students and teachers of Balochistan should get them out of the environment of fear and exhaust and they have to raise their voice for the safety of their future.




Baloch mothers die of waiting for their loved ones: BSO Azad

Baloch mothers die of waiting for their missing loved ones: BSO Azad

Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) expressed deep sorrow over the demise of missing Mehr Gul Marri’s mother and added that the security institutions enforcedly disappeared the Deputy Director Agriculture from his home on mid night of 2015.

Since then, his mother and complete family have been struggling for his recovery and his mother remained ill for a long time due to his non-recovery that died of these sorrows on previous day. 

Spokesperson further said that the state oppression and barbarism are on the peak since many years. Military operations, mutilated bodies, target killing of teacher, acid attacks on women and conversion of educational institutions into military camps with aims of closing doors of education to the  Baloch students are the continuity of the filthy policies of Pakistani state which are gaining intensity on daily basis— these are few top  examples of the state oppressions. 

The spokesperson said that several mothers, sisters and wives are extremely worried due to non-recovery of their loved ones including the state oppression, and like mother of Mehr Gul Marri, several other mothers have died of waiting for their missing loved ones, too. 

Spokesperson said to the international human rights institutions and United Nations that their silence is providing a justification to the barbaric policies of the state of Pakistan. Therefore, these international institutions should break their silence and provide justice to the Baloch nation.




Pay tribute to the Martyrs of Murghap’s sacrifices: BSO Azad

Pay tribute to the Martyrs of Murghap’s sacrifices: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) on the eve of the 10th Martyrdom Anniversary of the Martyrs of Murghap said that the Pakistani secret services enforcedly disappeared the Chairman of Baloch National Movement, Chairman Ghulam Mohammad, and his two colleagues, Lala Muneer Baloch and Sher Mohammad, from Turbat on April 3, 2009 and dumped their severely mutilated bodies on April 9 that year.     

Martyrs of Murghap vitalized the feeling of independence in Baloch nation through their everlasting sacrifices, struggle and leading capabilities. The Martyrs of Murghap and thousands of other strugglers/activists of Balochistan sacrificed their precious lives for the Baloch national identity, independence of the Baloch country and for the prosper life of the coming generations of Baloch nation where they should be free of the national slavery. Including that, their sacrifices were also aimed to get the ownership of their homeland and to give an eternal life to the Baloch traditions, language and identity. And, the philosophy of the Martyrs of Murghap was to avail themselves for their identity and country.

The Spokesperson further said that the incident of the Martyrs of Murghap was the beginning of the ‘Kill-and-Dump’ policy of the state which was followed by an escalated and fierce Baloch genocide.

In the Baloch genocide, thousands of youth, elders, political activists, students, laborers and doctors were extrajudicially arrested and then disappeared including the women and children who were/are illegally detained in the state torture cells for years.

 Several mutilated bodies of the illegally-arrested youth have been dumped, and the Kill-and-Dump policy is continued with rapidity till today where the arrest-cum-disappearance of women and children has been sped up. The extrajudicial detention leading to the disappearance of women is taking place on daily basis, too.

The Spokesperson said that we support Baloch National Movement’s announced references that will be conducted for remembrance and tribute of the Martyrs of Murghap, and all of our activists are requested to attend the references of Baloch National Movement in a large number.




International institutions should conduct DNA tests of the bodies in Balochistan which have been buried by declaring them abandoned: BSO Azad

International institutions should conduct DNA tests of the bodies in Balochistan which have been buried by declaring them abandoned: BSO Azad

Thursday, 28 March, 2019

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) expressed concern over the burial of the mutilated bodies which have been buried by declaring them abandoned and said that the state, including the violations of human rights, is insulting the humanity by throwing mutilated bodies of the Baloch missing persons on daily basis and declaring them abandoned and unknown.

The spokesperson said that the mutilated bodies have been discovered in Balochistan in form of mass graves before this incident but none of the unbiased institution conducted any investigation. In the similar pattern, 10 mutilated bodies were discovered last month which were also buried in Dasht Tera Mill, an area near Quetta, by declaring them abandoned, too. We fear that these all bodies are of the Baloch missing persons and burying them without any identity and DNA test is aimed by the state to keep their identity unknown.

Spokesperson said that United Nations and international human rights institutions are always silent over the Balochistan issue and particularly over the issue of the human rights violations. Their silence is providing opportunities to the state of Paksitan to oppress Baloch and insult the human rights in Balochistan further and this quietness is a question mark over the credibility of international institutions.  

Therefore, we request to the human rights institutions and United Nations to establish a tribunal in this regard globally and investigate the discovered mutilated bodies in Balochistan without any pressure and biasness and take action against the state of Pakistan over the violation of human rights.




All zones conduct references on 27th March Black Day: BSO Azad

All zones conduct references on 27th March Black Day: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) on the eve of 27thMarch Black Day said that Balochistan was completely free from the British occupation on 11th August, and the free and sovereigncountry of Baloch nation had been formed, but the Pakistani state, disrespecting all international laws, invaded the Baloch country, deprived Baloch nation of its right to freedom and seized its rights.

The Spokesperson further said that Baloch doesn’t accept this forced annexation since the day one and became resistant to it, and Baloch has kept continuity of that struggle constant till today. Since the first day, the state, to main its imperialism, has been trying to weaken and end the Baloch national movement through different tactic but the link of Baloch nation to this struggle has never been disconnected, and till today Baloch nation is in war with the state for its identity, history and lost independence.

Spokesperson further said that observing 27thMarch as Black Day is an attempt to divert the attention of international community, international media and United States towards the state barbarism and is also aimed to aware them about the historical background of this forceful annexation of Pakistan—which is not accepted by Baloch nation in any condition.  

Baloch has its distinct identity, history, civilization and country. For the defence of its identity, history and country, the occupation of English was resisted and at least independence was gained from them, but Baloch nation once again had faced the domination of a colonizer on 27th March 1948 which was rejected too.

The foundation of the Baloch national struggle was kept for the defence of its independence and that national struggle has been processed through the evolutionary processes which is present in the form of an organized movement by now and is challenging the foundations of the state domination today.     

Spokesperson said that an online campaign at Social Media will run on 27th March and all zones will conduct references, therefore, all activists should do preparation at large scale so that the voice against the forceful annexation of Paksitan should reach to the entire world in an organized manner.

Ban on political activities in educational institutions is the expression of fear: BSO Azad

Ban on political activities in educational institutions is the expression of fear: BSO Azad
The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad termed the ban on political and organizational activities as the state conspiracy and added that the ban on political and organizational activities is aimed to make students victim of mental impotent and to complete its dangerous ambitions—which cannot be accepted in any condition.
The political struggle of students has compelled the state to be frightened and in reaction the state, once again, began victimizing the Baloch students as its main target in order to neutralize the effects of its fear.
 The state imposed ban on Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO Azad) in 2013 with aims to restrain the continued political activities in the Baloch society but state’s all conspiracies remained failed before the sacrifices and politically conscious-ridden and peaceful student leaders and activists, and BSO Azad today as well is paying its duty of politically educating the youth in Baloch society.
Since a long time, the state is trying to distance the Baloch students to the national struggle and the current move is linked with this same policy because the state wants that Baloch students should be dispersed and be distanced from political education and activities and should be incapable to compete the state policies by becoming robots—which isn’t accepted in any condition.

The Spokesperson further said that the ban on political activities in educational institutions is a conspiracy to scatter the builders of the future. Students should fully resist this move and defeat the state by competing its educational and political bans through the power of their unity and solidarity.




Chairman Zahid Baloch’s Struggle is a role model for students: Sohrab Baloch

Chairman Zahid Baloch’s struggle is a role model for students: Sohrab Baloch

Chairman Baloch Students Organization Azad Sohrab Baloch on the completion day of the former chairman Zahid Baloch’s five years enforced disappearance said that Zahid Baloch was the supporter of the peaceful struggle and he kept educating the youth against the national slavery and for the independence of Baloch motherland through peaceful struggle.

Zahid Baloch was an example of commitment, courage and morale and he is a role model for the young students.

The enforced disappearance and extrajudicial killings of peaceful political leaders and activists proves that the state seems frightened due to the peaceful struggle of Baloch students because the peaceful struggle of Baloch Students Organization Azad has played an important role in highlighting the state oppression before the world.

Several leaders and activists of BSO Azad have been enforcedly disappeared in order to neutralize the effects of this fear and the disappearance of Zahid Baloch is linked with the same state fear.

Chairman further said that the organization has tried to highlight the disappearance case of Zahid Baloch in entire world, contacted with number of human rights institutions and staged hunger strike camp but Zahid Baloch hasn’t been surfaced so far and his family is also not informed about his life which is a serious violation of human rights.




Dera Bugti Operation is the black day in history: BSO Azad

Dera Bugti Operation is the black day in history: BSO Azad

The Central Spokesperson Baloch Students Organization Azad (BSO-A) with strongest words condemns the 17th March 2005’s Operation of Dera Bugti and added that 17thMarch is a horrible and unforgettable day in the Baloch national history.

On this day, the state of Pakistan killed more than 70 people through its fighter jets and heavy artillery’s bombardments where children and women were in a great number among the killed ones. The 17th March will always be remembered as a black day in the Baloch history.

The Spokesperson said that the attack of 17thMarch was in fact the display of state fear towards the Baloch national freedom struggle, and due to this fear the state has continued its full scale military operations in entire Balochistan.

The enforced disappearance incidents of children and women and the incidents of their extrajudicial killings are on the records which are clear proves of the war crimes, and ignoring such crimes is like putting the humanity in great danger.         

The Baloch national struggle has been under the strongest attempts of its suppression through power and barbarism since last 70 years, but the Baloch activists and strugglers have kept their struggle continued before the state barbarism by establishing the history of struggle and sacrifices.   

The Spokesperson added that the international powers and the United Nations like responsible institutions have to break their silence over the state barbarism in Balochistan because their silence and ignorance has converted Balochistan into a battlefield where the Baloch nation, having a history of thousands of years, is compelled to face the worst oppression.

The international community has to make the state elements, involved in war crimes in Balochistan, accountable and to compel them to be answerable over the genocide of the Baloch nation because the survival of humanity exists in the provision of justice.




Success of Baloch national freedom movement is impossible without the participation of Baloch women: Murwarid Baloch

Success of Baloch national freedom movement is impossible without the participation of Baloch women: Murwarid Baloch

Central Voice Chairperson Baloch Students Organization Azad Murwarid Baloch in her statement on the eve of International Women’s Day said that the International Women’s Day is the symbol of struggle of those women who raised voice for their rights and held protests at the roads of New York for the increment in salaries, right to vote and against the long duration of work.  

If women are provided equal opportunities for development including all facilities for needs of life, then they can play the important role for the development of any society of world.

Chairperson further said that women had an important status in political, economic and social system of Balochistan. The opinion of women had been given importance in the decision making process, but after the British occupation, the chieftains were given excessive power through Sandeman System and space for the Baloch women to play role in the social development was made limited and Baloch women then were made restricted till the boundaries of home only.

 In current circumstances, the Baloch women are resisting the Pakistan’s prejudice and outdated thoughts in Baloch society. Including this, the Baloch women should keep the social psychology aside and struggle to play an organized and important role in Baloch struggle for freedom, because the success of Baloch national independence struggle is impossible without the participation of Baloch women.  

Chairperson said that the Baloch women are seemed much effected due to the state barbarism in Balochistan.  Acid attacks on women, threatening pamphlets of religious groups and state death squads in schools of girls, enforced disappearance and custodial killing of Baloch women from different areas of Balochistan have been recorded. Including that several women have died due to the lack of health facilities during labor in Balochistan and an important reason behind that is the slavery under the state of Paksitan. To resist the current system and to stress over an important role in Baloch national movement is the only source to get rid of this slavery.

 It is the responsibility of the Baloch political parties and Baloch political organization to consciously educate the Baloch women and to prepare them for the struggle of national freedom, because the participation and role of women is the key to success for the Baloch independence movement.
