Letter to UNICEF Executive Director

📌 Draw your kind attention
towards children of Balochistan.

Ms. Henrietta H. Fore
Executive Director,

New York, New York 10017

Subject: To draw your kind attention towards children of Balochistan.

Dear Ms. Fore

I am writing to you to draw the attention of your institution towards the condition of children in Balochistan. Despite having infinite natural resources, strategic and lengthy coastal line and important geographic location, more than 71% people of Balochistan are living under the poverty line. The reason is state's exploitive policies.

Balochistan became a war zone due to policies of Pakistan's military establishment towards the indigenous people of Balochistan. The situation of some areas is extremely worrisome where people, instead of demanding fundamental rights for their
children, are deprived of right to life itself.
The children are deprived of their fundamental rights i.e health and education. Moreover, they are suffering of malnutrition, skin diseases, anemia, cancer, hepatitis and other lethal diseases. These diseases have claimed thousands of children's lives. There is not a single hospital in Balochistan, which is up to thestandards of a health facility center.

Children in Balochistan cannot get basic nutrition to lead a healthy life, even they cannot have clean drinking water. Moreover, they have become prime target of security forces during military operations and in many cases end up in the torture cells for being family members of political activists. Children are
living their life under the shadow of fear in Balochistan.

According to an organization Alif Ailaan, 70% children are out of school in Balochistan, but due to inaccessibility of the organization to war-torn, mountainous and far flung rural areas of Balochistan, the actual figure is far greater than what the organization claims. In accordance to the statistics of this organization, there are 13,845 schools in around 350,000 sq kilometer landmass of Balochistan. However, half of these schools only exist in government official records. The buildings of these schools are in dilapidated condition and lack furniture and sanitation system. Most of the teachers are employed on the basis of their political affiliation and are untrained while the syllabus of schools is outdated. On the other hand, state's military institutions, especially the FC (Frontier Corps) and the regulararmy have converted numbers of school buildings into their military camps and suspended the studies of the children.

UNICEF, as the institution for the safety of children should address these serious issues related to children of Balochistan and instead of relying on the fact and figures of Government, UNICEF should visit the rural areas of Balochistan and bringforward their own facts and findings.

I request you to consider the children of Balochistan as your own and address this vital issue effectively.

Thanks
Shahmeer Baloch
Secretary General of Baloch Students Organization Azad

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 .
