Balochistan's culture, identity in danger: Activist in UN

Geneva [Switzerland] October 2 (ANI): A Baloch political activist has told the United Nations that the culture, language and identity of Baloch people are in danger due to Pakistan's oppressive policies.
Munir Mengalthe President of Baloch Voice Association, while making an intervention during the ongoing 45th Session of UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday said: "Pakistan has opted a strategic policy of colonialism and structural discrimination in Balochistan."
"On one side the Baloch are facing systematic military operations, displacements, enforced disappearances, on the other-side state have deprived them of presenting their culture, reading, writing their mother language, barred from cultural norms and traditions. Just to eliminate their identity," he added.
More than 2.3 million out of 3.6 million school-age children in Balochistan are out of school, Munir said citing a report by Dawn News. "Out of 13,000 over 9,000 schools in Balochistan are without drinking water and toilets," he added.
He quoted the Baloch Peoples' Congress, a political party, saying, "The Conspiracy to detach the Baloch from its identity is on the peak, PM Imran Niazi has announced a package naming it for "Southern Balochistan".
"For us, this is a conspiracy to divide Balochistan and maintain occupation with ease. Unfortunately on the other side, Iran is also doing the same, by deleting the name of Balochistan from textbooks and maps", said Munir Mengal.
Munir told the United Nations, "The deep Islamic state is using religious militants to crush the Baloch political activists. Killing Baloch people and inciting hatred against them is merit for those aspiring to a political or an administrative office".
"How shamelessly the state organs are protecting the killers of Baloch female Artist and TV host Shaheena Shaheen. The Baloch people's pain is magnified whenever they feel forgotten. By not responding to their plight, denying them their humanity. Pakistan is betraying herself", he added. (ANI)

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 .
