Balochistan has historic rights for a separate nation: Dr. Murad Baloch says in an interview.

(Current Balochistan)

In an interview with News Intervention, Baloch National Movement Secretary General Dr. Murad Baloch has said that Balochistan has historic rights for a separate nation

In the interview, which was published today in News Intervention

The world watched silently when Pakistan captured Balochistan in 1948 through brute force. Even today, the world continues to remain mute when Pakistan’s military commits worst human rights violations across mineral rich Balochistan. But the Baloch refuse to be cowed down and have been valiantly fighting Pakistani occupation and are resisting Chinese plunder of their natural resources. Baloch National Movement (BNM) spearheads the freedom struggle of Balochistan, and BNM’s Secretary General Dr. Murad Baloch tells Vivek Sinha in his first ever interview that Baloch struggle should not be dismissed as just another armed insurgency, rather it is a genuine freedom struggle for a separate country, Balochistan. Dr. Murad Baloch requested News Intervention not to publish his photograph as he faces grave threats to his life from the Pakistani deep state.

*Vivek Sinha: Why are Baloch up in arms against Pakistan? What exactly do they want?*

*Dr. Murad Baloch*: 71 years ago, at the time of British withdrawal from the Indian subcontinent, Balochistan was declared as a free, autonomous and sovereign state. Balochistan was treated much differently than other princely states of the subcontinent. For eight months after British withdrawal from India, Balochistan was an independent nation. But eight months later, Pakistan annexed the free and sovereign state of Balochistan through the barrel of guns. Since then the Balochistan nation has been primarily resisting the Pakistani occupation. Baloch want to regain their lost sovereignty and the free status of Balochistan which is guaranteed in the Charter of UN (United Nations) to each nation.

*VS: We keep hearing about the human rights violations in Balochistan by the Pakistan armed forces. Why does this happen regularly?*

*Dr. Murad Baloch*: Yes, Pakistani security agencies have created a havoc with their barbarism. They have sealed Balochistan and made it almost impossible for international human rights and media organizations to operate here. This has allowed them to continue with their gross human rights violations. As mentioned earlier, the notorious “Kill and Dump” policy against the Baloch people, enforced disappearances of Baloch youth and elders, women and children are a daily routine. More than forty thousand Baloch have been forcibly disappeared. The desensitization of world powers has allowed Pakistan to continue this slow-motion genocide with complete impunity.

*VS: Please give a historical perspective about the Balochistan freedom struggle.*

*Dr. Murad Baloch*: The Baloch nation had been struggling against British colonization in different periods and then against Pakistan. But the British had exerted power on Balochistan through different treaties and agreements while Pakistan used brute force to occupy and colonize Balochistan and is even doing the same in this modern era of the 21st century. The Baloch nation resisted this forceful occupation from the first day onwards and has continued the struggle to defend themselves and regain their freedom.

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 .
