FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C — Balochistan’s resources belong to Baloch people and Pakistan and China have no right to loot and plunder and exploit the Balochistan’s resources against the will and consent of Baloch people”, said Dr. Wahid Baloch, the President of Balochistan National Congress (BNC), a Premier Baloch body based in Washington, D.C., in a statement.
Balochistan, an Independent State, was forcefully occupied in 1948 by the Pakistan’s army and annexed into Pakistan against the Baloch people’s will and mandate.
Since then Pakistan’s occupying forces are busy in loot and plunder of Balochistan’s rich natural resources at gun point and now Chinese has also joined Pakistan to exploit and rob the Balochistan’s resources too.
We ask the world community to stop Pakistan and China from looting and plundering the Balochistan’s resources until Balochistan’s status as an independent and free State is restored and Baloch people are able to decide how to use their natural resources for their own benefit and uplifting.
Pakistan and China are not only busy in robbing the Balochistan’s resources but have also turned Balochistan into a dump yard where old ships are being broken and nuclear tests are being carried out illegally against the consent of Baloch people.
China in its impatience to access Balochistan’s resources is taking a short cut through Rawalpindi.
“China needs to understand that there has been a major Baloch uprising every decade since neo-colonial Pakistan occupied our sacred land”, said Dr. Baloch.
Pakistan has been successful to keep the Baloch people subjugated, but Baloch people are determined to throw the Pakistani intruders and occupiers out of their homeland.
BNC asks the world community to support the just cause of Baloch people in their fight for freedom and justice against Pakistan and Iran.
