Rising Chinese influence in Balochistan is a major threat to peace in the region. Nawab Brahumdagh BugtiSeptember 26, 2013
Baloch Republican Party’s central leadership addressed International media in a press conference in Geneva press club.
The head of the Baloch Republican Party Nawab Brahumdagh Khan Bugti, vice president Advocate Anwar Baloch, central spokesman Sher Mohammad Bugti, Masood Sardarzai and the President of BRP UK chapter Mansoor Baloch were present at the press conference.
Following is the Speech of Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti.
First of all, i would like to thank all of you for being here to listen to the pain of Baloch people and under the deteriorating situation of Balochistan. I really appreciate your kind presence.
Balochistan is geographically located in a strategic location as it borders Afghanistan and Iran in the west, Pakistani province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab in the north, Sindh in the east and arabian sea in the south. Balochistan covers the 44 percent of Pakistan in geographically but only 5 percent in terms of population. Balochistan is rich in mineral resources and natural wealth such as oil, gas, copper, gold, granite, marble, coal to name but only a few.
All these specifications have become a threat to the lives of the Baloch people instead of bringing peace and prosperity to their lives as the state have resorted to worst kind of violence against the ordinary people to suppress their birth rights.
We are here to inform the international community about the deadly situation in Balochistan. Baloch people are suffering the worst kind of human rights violations under the forceful Pakistani rule in Balochistan since 1948. Military operations, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings have become a matter of daily life. No day passes without a military offensive; someone being abducted or a bullet-riddled dead body being found.
The state have imposed different forms of violation in Balochistan including state terrorism and religious extremism. We condemn religious extremism in the region and especially in Balochistan. As it has already became an open secret that Pakistan is the only exploiter of terrorism in the whole region and that it is financially supporting the Jihadist groups who are destabilizing the entire region. The bloodshed of the Shia minoriy in Balochistan can not be justified at any cost. Pakistan Army’s armed proxy groups are behind such barbaric actions to confuse the world regarding Balochistan Liberation Movement. Pakistan is the factory of terrorists and spreading them to worldwide.
Baloch people strongly oppose Chinese intervention in Balochistan. Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project and China’s involvement in Gwadar port are against the Baloch will and we do not accept them. We consider China and Iran as crime partners of Pakistan in Balochistan.
China has been actively involved in the loot and plunder of the natural resources of Balochistan since past many years. It has been playing a criminal part in looting resources from Sui, Saindak, Rekodic and other parts of the Baloch homeland. China is exploring the Sui, Dera Bugti areas for more oil and gas reserves where major military offensives are carried out by Pakistan army against the innocent civilian populace of the area to compel them to migrate from the area and pave the way for the plunder of the natural resources.
Planting landmines have become a routine exercise of the Pakistani forces and their proxies in the areas of Dera Bugti that killed hundreds of innocents including women and children. They also torch the houses of innocent Baloch after looting them & pollute the sources of drinking water such as lakes and wells with deadly poison and force the inhabitants to migrate from the area.
It is the fifth major military operation underway in Balochistan and they have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives of innocent Baloch people and more than 500,000 have migrated from their ancestral areas to other parts of Balochistan, Sindh, Punjab and more than 10,000 have even migrated to Afghanistan because of the threat to their lives from the state.
Some parts of Balochistan such as Dera Bugti, Kohistan Marri, Mashkay, Mastung, Punjgor and others have been made no-go zones and these areas are under continuous assaults of forces where they indiscriminately target the innocent Baloch civilians populace and bomb their houses.
On March 17th 2005 Pakistan Army killed 80 people in a carpet bombardment over Dera Bugti city where majority of the victims were women and children. Prominent Baloch Leader and My Grandfather was the main target of the Pakistani state forces but fortunately he survived in the attack. He was demanding the basic rights for the people of Balochistan and he had politically struggled for years to draw attention of the civilized world towards Balochistan but he was forced by the state to leave his hometown. He went to the mountains along with hundreds of his comrades and stood to defend the right of his people.
Shaheed Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti was martyred along with 32 of his tribesmen by the Pakistani Army in a gory operation on August 26th 2006 in Tratani region between Dera Bugti and Kohlu. Fighter jet and chemical weapons were used against the aged Baloch leader.
Enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings in Balochistan are one of the worst in the entire world. More than 15,000 political activists, students, teachers, lawyers, intellectuals hence people from all walks of life have been abducted by Pakistani state forces and secret agencies within past one decade. 800 plus bullet-riddled dead bodies of those abducted have been found so far while both the list of victims of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings is rising very fast.
Prominent Human Rights organizations like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International
have repeatedly documented the state atrocities and human rights violations committed
by Pakistani forces in Balochistan but nothing has been done to help stop those abuses except mere lip service and paperwork.
Unfortunately, the international community have turned a blind eye and deaf ears to this human
tragedy in Balochistan. International media has limited itself to the state narration and it doesn’t
try to gain access to explore and report the real situation. We demand to the United Nation to
immediately take action to end the sufferings of Baloch nation. We urge the international
community to step forward and support the just and lawful struggle of the Baloch people for their
birth rights including the right to self-rule and the right to self-determination.
