Baloch activists held rallies and seminars all over the world to observe the 'BalochMartyrs Day' on Tuesday.

In London, the Baloch National Movementorganised a seminar to pay tributes to the activists killed by Pakistan's army and secret services agencies.

In Busan city of South Korea, a protest rally was organized by the Baloch National Movement and Baloch Students Organisation, Azad, on the eve of the Baloch Martyrs Day.

The protesters chanted slogans against Pakistan army's brutalities in Balochistan.

The Baloch nation has been commemorating November 13 as 'National Remembrance Day Baloch Martyrs Day' for past few years.

This day's significance goes back to November 13, 1839, when the British forces attacked Balochistan and killed Baloch ruler Mir Mehrab Khan Baloch and his comrades.

The British then occupied and divided Balochistan into three parts by drawing arbitrary Gold Smith and Durand Lineswhich the Baloch nation never accepted as international borders and continued their struggle to regain independence of united Balochistan.

The Baloch activists paid tributes to martyrs in Vancouver city of Canada as well. Naela Quadri Balochpresident of World Baloch Women's Forum, said, "Balochistan has never accepted anybody's forceful occupation. Balochistan has always resisted against each and every kind of invasion - be it Portuguese, British, Iran or Arab. Whoever tried to forcefully occupy Balochistan, we have resisted".

"Today, Balochistan is resisting against the occupation of Iran and Pakistan and Baloch people are demanding to reunite Balochistan, a democratic, a peaceful and a nuclear-free Balochistan. And for this Balochistan, we Baloch will struggle," she added.

Talking about Pakistan's ill-treatment of Baloch people, especially women and children, Naela said, "Today, Balochistan is facing nuclearisation, Iran and Pakistan are using Baloch land against our will for nuclear testing. They are also hiding their nuclear weapons in Balochistan. Today, they are trying to infiltrate religious extremism in Balochistan. We have nothing to do with Taliban, ISIS or any other religious extremism. We are pluralist people and we respect each and every religion."

Thousands of Baloch men, women, youth and elderly have sacrificed their lives in defence of Balochistan and to resist against foreign occupation of their land.

The Baloch have fought against Arabs, Mughals, Mongols, Portuguese and British invading forces and defended the region.

Currently, Balochistan is struggling with the illegal occupation in the region by Iran and Pakistan after they occupied the sovereign Baloch nation in 1928 and 1948 respectively.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
