First of all lets’ be realistic. Let’s not call it a “ILLEGAL OCCUPATION”, as It is not an illegal occupation but was willful deliberate and voluntary merger of Khan Kalat with Jinnah of Pakistan. Khan Kalat did signed the document of accession on his own free will to please the prophet Mohammad (PBUH) after seeing him in his dream. He did it to prove that he is a good Muslim. He signed on the death warrants of millions of Baloch despite the fact that the both Baloch upper and lower houses voted unanimously to stay free and independent.
Balochs, Protesting against Pakistan, should also protest against Khan Kalat and his family for selling Balochistan to Pakistan.
This was not the first time Khan Kalat have sold Baloch land. In 1883, the Khan of Kalat sold the Quetta district and adjoining territories to the British government. Alongside the land, it was also an outright sale of the people, like a herd of cattle. Heirs of Khan of Kalat were also obliged to adhere to this hire purchase arrangement. He received an annual grant of Rs. 25000 for selling the most attractive part of Balochistan to the British government. The irony is that non of the money received was used for the welfare of ordinary Baloch people. No any Road, Hospital or School was built to help the ordinary Balochs, but was pocketed as personal wealth and was used to build palaces.
In 1783, the Khan of Kalat sold Gwadar to Taimur Sultan of Oman. On September 8, 1958, Pakistan purchased the Gwadar back from Oman for $3 million. Gwadar officially became part of Pakistan on December 8,1958. At the time, Gwadar was a small and underdeveloped fishing village with a population of a few thousand at that time.
Let’s not forget, It was again Mir Ahmed Yar Khan in Kalat who weighed Qaid Azum Mohamad Ali Jinnah and his sister into Golds and Silvers and give it to them as gift where the ordinary Baloch slept in hunger with empty stomach.
The lust of selling Baloch land and resources continue as the current Khan Kalat Mir Suleman Daud Khan recently sold a piece of priceless diamond-studded Baloch crown and a centuries old carpet of Kalat palace, that belonged to Baloch National heritage, to multi millions dollars in Dubai and bought himself a nice home in Cardiff, U.K for cash.
That was not enough. Khan Kalat is currently busy joining hands with Afghanistan’s Northen Alliance Warlords to sell the Balochistan’s natural wealth and Gwadar port to higher bidder such as UNOCAL and other oil and gas giant companies in exchange for to re-establish his monarchy (Khanate), over the bullet riddled dead bodies of Baloch people, with the help of some Iranian thugs and Jundullah terrorists, by suing the fancy slogan of Azadee, but Baloch Nation will not let them succeed in their evil game. Balochistan belong to Baloch people not to Khans, Nawabs and Sradaras.
On one sdie Khan Kalat shouting slogan of Azadee (freedom) from London, but at the same time his son Prince Mohammad Ahmedzai is sitting with Commander of Southern Command Lt-Gen Alam Khan Khattak, Balochistan Assembly Speaker Muhammad Aslam Bhootani,Governor Magsi and provincial ministers and senior military and civil officers celebrating Pakistan Day. May be Khan Kalat can explain why his son was celebrating “Pakistan day” and what does this mean of riding two horses at the same time? How long they will fool the ordinary Balochs??
