Baloch have been deprived of their basic rights.

Eighty per cent of Balochistan is deprived of gas, including Gwadar. It is quite repulsive to know that the province that supplies most of the gas to the country does not have access to it. Article 158 of The Pakistan Constitution 1973 states,“*The province in which a wellhead of natural gas is situated shall have precedence over other parts of Pakistan in meeting the requirements from the wellhead.”
Since *national law is not implemented, international law favours the Baloch stance,* which obviously has no relevance to Pakistan amongst other matters.The International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966 UN December 16) Part 1 Article 2 states,“All peoples may, for their own ends, freely dispose of their natural wealth and resources without prejudice to any obligations arising out of international economic co-operation, based upon the principle of mutual benefit, and international law. In no case may a people be deprived of its own means of subsistence.”

Common Baloch have no say either in Pakistani politics or in the Freedom struggle, entire spectrum is dominated by Sardars. Even the so called first middle class Baloch Government headed by Dr.Malik has 11 Sardars as ministers out of 14. This only proves that Sardars are part of the problem to genuine aspirations of common people. All Freedom struggle groups are headed by Sardars except BNM, add…
