Truth is the first casualty in war.

The real story is still not clear as an Associated Press story in the New York Times and most news channels reported that the 15 killed were trying to cross the border into Iran for onward journey to the West, while the militant Baloch Liberation Front claimed they were workers of the army-run Frontier Works Organization.

The New York Times reported: “Gunmen have shot and killed 15 men who were planning to cross into Iran on their way to Europe as well as a police official and three of his family members in separate attacks in southwestern Pakistan, officials said Wednesday.

“Darmoon Bawani, an administrator in Turbat district, which borders Iran, said the 15 men were killed in a mountain village. He said they ranged in age from 18 to 30 years old, and all hailed from the populous Punjab province. Travel documents showed they were planning to go to Europe, likely to seek work as migrant laborers. Their bodies were found Wednesday.”

Though the report said no one claimed responsibility, the BLF did claim responsibility and tweeted, “BLF fighters arrested and executed fifteen personnel of Pakistani military construction company Frontier Works Organization (FWO) in Kech. Their confessional video for working with FWO will be released soon.”

A senior independent journalist from Quetta, who is against ISI machinations while speaking on condition of anonymity, said though there were two versions about the identity of the dead, he would say they were wannabe emigrants to Europe. He explained that those who work for FWO mainly come from extremely low income districts in Multan and southern Punjab. “The dead belonged to the prosperous areas such as Mandi Bahauddin, Daska and Gujranwalla where most parents teach their kids from a very young age to get European passports.”

A picture of the dead on the scene also indicates that they may actually have been travelers as their sneakers and shoes seem to be new which most laborers in Pakistan cant afford to wear.

The incident was similar to one about five years ago when Baloch militants had killed 11 men, including five Afghans, who were trying to cross into Iran, according to Two Circles news.

An Ahmadi friend, Naeem Shamim, who has always supported a free Balochistan was aghast over the killings.  “I as a liberal leftist who fully support the right to self determination and independence of the Baloch people see no difference between the Punjabi military officers who throw innocent Baloch lads from helicopters and the Baloch who spray bullet innocent Punjabi non-combatants …….. Please stop bringing bad name to your otherwise fully legitimate and just struggle!”

Shamim tagged me in his post to which I responded, “I am a human first. I strongly condemn such cowardly, brutal and barbaric actions as the perpetrators of such actions are no different than ISI, MI and the FC (Frontier Corps).”

The BLF’s actions may put its political arm the Baloch National Movement (BNM) and its student wings Baloch Students Organization (BSO) Azad on the wrong side of Western governments and their activists may come under surveillance.

For posterity sake, I am including the BLF statement in Urdu and my translation here.

The headline of the BLF statement reads:

(We) Killed 15 workers of the FWO; (they) admitted working for the army: BLF

Quetta, (Sangar News): Balochistan Liberation Front spokesperson Gwahram Baloch, communicating through satellite phone from an undisclosed location, owned responsibility for killing workers of the army-run FWO who were working on a China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in District Kech. The spokesman said the 15, who were working on a CPEC project route, were arrested and then executed. The spokesman said the 15 included four Pakistani secret service officials and 11 FWO workers. All were arrested and then killed. The video in which they made confessional statements that they were recruited by the Pakistan army to work for the CPEC project is with us. They were arrested from Saami area and sentenced to death in Kallagh area in Turbat.

Gwahram Baloch said we have been repeatedly saying that Balochistan is in a state of war and that no project is possible here without the consent of the Baloch people. Pakistan army for easy access into Balochistan is building roads in tune with the so-called China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). In addition to  the main highways, the army is building link roads which we have opposed since day one and are waging an armed struggle against them. In addition to the army-run works organization all other companies and people from different nationalities, including Baloch themselves, have been forewarned not to become part of these projects. In spite of our warnings, Pakistan army by offering perks and privileges brings in people to work on their schemes. We want to make it clear we are not going to spare any such elements. Despite the conditions of war, we are committed to upholding international laws as we continue our struggle. Those who work for the state are treated like armed soldiers is an accepted fact and in accordance with international law. If anyone makes a hue and cry over this to express sympathy with Pakistan army and their officials, we invite them to have an open debate with us.

Gwahram Baloch said on the one hand the occupying state has started abduction of women and children and on the other hand is trying to complete uplift projects by use of military force. Their aim is to connect China with Gwadar for their own strategic and economic gains which in reality means loot and plunder of Baloch resources. Anyone who becomes a party to this loot and plunder deserves to be taken to task.

Recently, it has also become clear that some so-called nationalists are equally responsible along with the Pakistani state to promote the genocide of the Baloch people. Among them leaders of the National Party, specially Hasil Bizenjo and Malik Baloch, are on the top of the list. Such elements, in order to continue with their jobs and perks, will cry hoarse over the killings but they have kept silent on the abductions and martyrdom of 40,000 Baloch.

We don’t need to go on explaining the administration and structure of the FWO because it is clear to everyone who are the people who work for the FWO and who are the guys who employ and post them. Those who some think are ordinary workers are actually busy to please their (military) masters.

Gwahram Baloch also said in the night between Tuesday and Wednesday, the BLF fighters armed with heavy automatic weapons attacked an eight-vehicle Pakistan convoy, killing six army personnel and wounding many others.

He said in the night between Monday and Tuesday explosives were planted at the offices of a petrol pump on Quetta Road in Harnai that left two people injured. They were both buddies of Pakistan army. The office was a favorite haunt of Pakistan army officers and state personnel from where they collected information about the militants. Such attacks will continue until the freedom of Pakistan.

پندرہ ایف ڈبلیواو کے اہلکاروں کو ہلاک کیا، فوج کیلئے کام کرنے کا اعترافی ویڈیو موجود ہے۔بی ایل ایف

Nov 15, 2017, 8:16 pm
کوئٹہ (سنگر نیوز)بلوچستان لبریشن فرنٹ کے ترجمان گہرام بلوچ نے نامعلوم مقام سے سٹیلائٹ فون کے ذریعے سی پیک پر عسکری تعمیراتی کمپنی ایف ڈبلیواو کے کارندوں کو ہلاک کرنے کی ذمہ داری قبول کرتے ہوئے کہاکہ ضلع کیچ میں چین پاکستان اکنامک کوریڈور (سی پیک) منصوبے کی روٹ پر کام کیلئے آنے والے 15 اہلکاروں کو گرفتار ی کے بعد ہلاک کردیا ہے،جس میں چار سیکورٹی اہلکار و پاکستانی خفیہ اداروں کے کارندوں سمیت11 ایف ڈبلیواو کے اہلکار شامل ہیں۔ سب کو گرفتار کرنے کے بعد ہلاک کیا۔اعترافی ویڈیو ہمارے پاس بطور ثبوت موجود ہے کہ انہیں پاکستانی فوج نے ایف ڈبلیو او کے لئے بھرتی کیا تھا۔سامی تربت سے گرفتارکیا اور کلگ تربت میں موت کی سزا دے دی۔ گہرام بلوچ نے کہا کہ ہم مسلسل کہتے آ رہے ہیں کہ بلوچستان حالت جنگ میں ہے ، اور یہاں کسی قسم کا منصوبہ بلوچ قوم کی منشاء کے بغیر ممکن نہیں۔پاکستانی فوج اپنی رسائی کے لیے سڑکوں کی تعمیر کے ساتھ نام نہاد چین پاکستان اکنامک کوریڈور(سی پیک) کے ذریعے مین شاہراؤں کے ساتھ لنک روڈ بنا رہی ہے جس کی ہم نے شروع دن سے مخالفت کی ہے اوران کے خلاف مسلح مزاحمت کی ہے۔عسکری تعمیراتی کمپنی سمیت کسی بھی منصوبے کے لیے کام کرنے سے بلوچ سمیت تمام اقوام کے لوگوں کو منع کیا گیا مگر اسکے باوجود پاکستانی فوج مفادات و مراعات دے کے لوگوں کو اپنے منصوبے مکمل کرنے بلوچستان لے آتی ہے۔ہم واضح کر دیں کہ ایسے کسی بھی عناصر کو نہیں بخشا جائے گا جو بلوچ قومی مفادات و آزادی کے خلاف سرگرم ہو چاہے اس کا تعلق کسی بھی قومیت سے ہو۔حالانکہ ہم حالت جنگ میں بھی عالمی قوانین کی پاسداری کرتے ہوئے اپنی جد و جہد جاری رکھے ہوئے ہیں۔ ریاستی آلہ کاروں کو آزادی کی جنگ میں مسلح فوج کی طرح نشانہ بنایا جاتا ہے، یہ بھی ایک مسلمہ حقیقت اور عالمی قوانین کے مطابق ہے۔ اس پر اگر کوئی واویلا کرکے پاکستان فوج و آلہ کاروں کیلئے رحم و ہمدردی کا اظہار کرتا ہے تو ہم انہیں مناظرے کی دعوت دیتے ہیں۔
گہرام بلوچ نے کہا قابض ریاست نے بلوچ عورتوں اور بچوں کو اُٹھا کر غائب کرنا شروع کیا ہے، اور دوسری طرف فوجی طاقت کے ذریعے ترقیاتی کاموں کو مکمل کرنے کی کوشش کر رہا ہے تاکہ یہاں چین کوگوادر سے جوڑ کر عسکری و معاشی فائدے حاصل کر سکے ، جو یقیناًبلوچ قومی وسائل کی لوٹ مار ہے۔ اس لوٹ مار میں جو کوئی بھی حصہ دار ہو وہ سزا کا مستحق ہے۔ حالیہ عرصے میں یہ بات بھی ثابت ہو چکی ہے کہ کچھ نام نہاد قوم پرست بلوچ نسل کشی کو بڑھاوا دینے میں ریاست کے ہم پلہ ہیں۔ ان میں نیشنل پارٹی کے رہنما خاص کر ڈاکٹر مالک اور حاصل بزنجو سر فہرست ہیں۔ ان جیسے لوگ عسکری تعمیراتی کمپنی کے ان پندرہ اہلکاروں پر واویلا بھی کریں گے مگر پاکستانی فوج کے ہاتھوں چالیس ہزار بلوچوں کے اغوا اور شہادت پر چپ سادھے ہوئے ہیں تاکہ ان کی نوکری اور مراعات میں کمی نہ آئے۔ ہمیں ایف ڈبلیو او کی نظامت و ڈھانچہ کی بار بار تفصیل دینے کی ضرورت نہیں کیونکہ آج ہر عام شخص کو معلوم ہوچکا ہے کہ ایف ڈبلیو او کے اہلکار کون ہیں اور کون ان کی بھرتی و تعیناتی کرتاہے۔ انہیں جو لوگ عام مزدور گردانتے ہیں وہ صرف اپنے آقا کو خوش کرنے کی تگ ود و میں ہیں۔
گہرام بلوچ نے کہا کہ منگل اور بدھ کی درمیانی شب ضلع آواران کے علاقے پیراندر کنیرہ میں آٹھ گاڑیوں پر مشتمل پاکستانی فوجی قافلے پر خودکار بھاری ہتھیاروں سے حملہ کرکے نصف درجن سے زائد اہلکاروں کو ہلاک اور کئی زخمی کیے۔ پیر اور منگل کی رات ہرنائی شہر میں کوئٹہ روڈ پر واقع ایک پٹرول پمپ کے دفتر پر دھماکہ خیز مواد رکھ کر دفتر کو نقصان پہنچایا۔ اس میں دو شخص زخمی ہوئے ہیں۔ یہ دونوں پاکستانی فوج کے ہمنوا ہیں اور یہ دفتر پاکستانی فوج کے افسر اور کئی اہلکاروں کا ٹھکانہ تھا جہاں سے وہ معلومات حاصل کرتے تھے۔ یہ حملے بلوچستان کی آزادی تک جاری رہیں گے۔

Xi’s China wants to engage the world through commerce but also through environmental protection and technological advancement. This includes Beijing’s efforts to fight climate change with information and communication technologies (ICTs) that it plans to export along its “One Belt One Road” initiative (OBOR).
