Washington, DC— Balochistan National Congress (BNC), the premiers Baloch body, based in Washington, D.C., rejects the upcoming Pakistan’s elections that are being held in July 25, 2018 and ask the Baloch people in the occupied Balochistan to boycott them as these elections are aimed to strengthen the Pakistan’s illegal and unjust occupation of Balochistan and exacerbate their exploitation of Balochistan’s natural resources by the Punjabi occupying forces.
“These Punjabi elections that are being held are aimed to justify an illegal occupation that was wrong, unjust and immoral and to create rift, division and animosity among the ordinary Baloch people, to pitch them against each other and to pitch brothers against brothers”, said Dr. Baloch, the President of BNC.
He asked Baloch people in Balochistan to boycott the Pakistan’s election to register their protest peacefully without resorting to any violence.
He said Balochistan is an occupied territory and holding pro-Pakistan elections in an occupied and disputed territory to justify the Pakistan’s illegal and unjust occupation of Balochistan is wrong and a violation of international laws.
Balochistan, an Independent and sovereign state, was forcibly occupied and annexed into Pakistan by Pakistan’s armed forces on March 27, 1948, against the will and mandate of Baloch people.
He said BNC will continue its peaceful and non-violent struggle against the illegal and unjust occupation of Balochistan until the Balochistan is completely free and independent.
He asked the Pakistan’s occupying forces to end their illegal and unjust occupation of Balochistan without any further bloodshed and violence and that the Balochistan’s status as an independent and sovereign state must be restored according to the international laws.
He asked the world leaders to come forward and help the oppressed Baloch people in the occupied Balochistan in their fight for freedom and justice against the illegal and unjust occupation of their motherland Balochistan by Pakistan and Iran.
