(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.
