COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP: Only one thing contributes to success

Only one thing plays important role in Baluch struggle for independence– COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP

Textbook theories hardly work on current Baloch leadership which is comprised of semi-literate, inarticulate idiots hell bent to enjoy luxury life in London and Gulf.For them Baloch movement is a Business, soon their kids and grand-kids are following their path. Mr.Sarjov, Kindly ask your people in London to arrange a meeting to discuss for “collective leadership”. No negotiations will be accepted without involvement of all Baloch leaders, sardars should be just part of the collective leadership.



Three functions play important roles within the Baluch struggle for the independence.
Baluchistan has a rich history the Baluchistan invasion and occupation has been well documented. Many external powers accept that the entire Baluchistan is an occupied and divided land and the Baluch claim to independent is legitimate claim. It is up to Baluch to claim their independent. One has to understand that external powers have no problem to recognise current boundaries, if Baluch cannot mobilise their power to claim their land for themselves and challenge the legitimacy of the Iranian and Pakistan rules.
Three functions play important roles within the Baluch struggle for the independence.
A)     Coordination play in bringing together diverse political and interests groups into a single movement, by providing each group with a unity of a reason.
B)      Mobilisation brings new groups into the struggle for liberation, otherwise have no interest in politic, and provide them with political objectives and explanation.
C)      Legitimisation  present an acceptable image of the independent Baluchistan to the world.
The Coordination brings groups together mobilise popular political action persuade insider and outsiders to provide sympathy and supports. The struggle for independence argument must be rational. The assessment of the struggle for independence depends upon the relative importance of the coordination, mobilisation, and legitimisation.
The struggle for independent must obtain external support and have to play a part in the internal organisation of the national movement in order to obtain and organise popular support. In the Baluch struggle for independent the mobilisation function is very important, because the Baluch nation is divided in tribes and regional and there are tribal and regional rivalry among tribal as well as educated elites, secondly Baluchistan is sparsely populated.

ISLAMABAD:A senator from the economically impoverished Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) with assets worth Rs273 million is on average three times richer than his Baloch counterpart.

Baloch legislators, however, get the lion’s share in the revenue accruing from natural resources which they have omitted from the declaration of assets filed with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). The undeclared revenue has yet to be assessed.  A Baloch senator owns assets worth only Rs82 million.

Eight lawmakers from the tribal belt possess assets worth Rs2.1 billion compared to 22 senators from Balochistan whose assets are valued at Rs1.9 billion.

Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, with property worth Rs0.5 million, is the poorest lawmaker in Balochistan, according to the declaration of assets released by the ECP last week. Interestingly, the ECP has not declared Senator Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani’s assets.

Mehran Baloch exposed: ISI behind his progapanda machine

A ISI pawn, Mehran BalochA ISI pawn, Mehran Baloch

this news item was written by a Poki journalist about Mahran Baloch- s/o Khair Bux Marri. It said UNPO declared Mehran as undesired Person. Mehran said ”  The refusal by the UNPO to me also reflects how badly divided the Baloch activists are and why they need to show international unity for a common cause. Only our unity can defeat the aims of the minnows,”a lie.

Is ISI secretly promoting Mehran Baloch?

Subject: Re: Mehran Baloch expulsion

Dear Mr Kumar,

In response to your query about the participation of Mehran Baloch at a recent event involving UNPO, we would be happy to clarify a few points regarding the event. 
The event in question was hosted by the Society for Threatened Peoples during the 18th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Reflecting many years of trusted collaboration, UNPO cooperated with STP in the organization of the event to raise international awareness of the very serious issue of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings in Balochistan.

The assertion that Mr. Mehran Baloch was denied a platform is inaccurate as on this occasion Mr. Baloch was not scheduled to be a speaker. However the event was open to all and following a request from Mr. Baloch attempts were nevertheless made to add him to the event panel at the last minute. However for technical reasons it proved regrettably impossible to include Mr. Baloch on the list ofspeakers at such short notice.

However, it must be noted that from the outset the event did include the participation of three Baloch speakers, two of whom represent UNPO’s Member organization, the Balochistan National Party (BNP) with whom Mr. Baloch works very closely. The event organisers also ensured time was provided for both questions and answers and comment to be made at the close of the event but Mr Baloch did not avail himself of this time to raise any issues.

UNPO must strongly emphasize that the organizers of this event received no communication or pressure from the government of Pakistan or the OIC prior to this event. The regrettable turn of events reflect the protocol and logistical requirements associated with the United Nations. Because of its work in successfully raising awareness of human rights in countries such as Pakistan, China, and Iran amongst others, the UNPO is essentially prevented from obtaining ECOSOC consultative status with the United Nations. In collaboration with others however UNPO is nonetheless able to raise constructive criticism of the regime in Islamabad and the very serious short-comings we see in governance, accountability, and transparency in Pakistan – the UNPO has, and will continue to be, one of the most consistent voices calling for respect of the human rights of Baloch and others living in Pakistan today.

In sum, we regret that Mr Baloch’s office or News International did not choose to contact the UNPO before running their story and again, we refute any suggestion that the UNPO was influenced by the Pakistan authorities. UNPO remains steadfast in our commitment to the Baloch nonviolent cause, which we continue to raise in our advocacy at the international level with events at the UN and European Parliament planned for 2012 and beyond.

I believe this covers the main issues raised by your question but if we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Lisa Thomas

Mehran Baloch s/o Khair Bux Marri was declared “Undesirable person” by UNPO

Mehran Baloch declared "undesired person" by UNPO

Murtaza Ali Shah
Saturday, October 22, 2011

LONDON: A European organisation gave in to pressure from the Pakistani government and refused to allow platform to an influential Baloch leader, who had been raising the Balochistan issue at the UN for more than six years, Baloch activists said on Friday.The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation (UNPO) told Mehran Baloch that the organisation had apprehensions “from partners in working with anyone associated” him, they added.A representative of the UNPO told Mehran Baloch’s office: “I’m concerned not just for UNPO but also for the Society for Threatened Peoples, which is a strong and loyal partner and a resource that UNPO’s other members also want to be able to use.”Given the loss of Interfaith International’s Ecosoc status, said the representative in reference to the suspension of the Geneva-based NGO at Pakistan’s request, “we have to be extremely careful not to jeopardise this.”The UNPO provided platform to many other Baloch figures from various organisations but it categorically told its associates that Mehran Baloch was an undesired person.Mehran Baloch said he believed the UNPO action came at Pakistani request and the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) countries, who support Pakistan on such issues.He regretted that an organisation like the UNPO had succumbed to the pressure put in by external forces and failed in its duty to “stand up for the people” it is named after. “This is a dangerous trend that the organisation advocating the rights of the people are suspended and disallowed to work,” he said.He said that Dr Charles Graves of the Interfaith International had assured him that he was looking to continue providing platform to diverse opinion as soon as the suspension period of his organisation ended but also said the pressure on his organisation was too great.

“The refusal by the UNPO to me also reflects how badly divided the Baloch activists are and why they need to show international unity for a common cause. Only our unity can defeat the aims of the minnows,” Mehran Baloch commented.

Ahmar Mustikhan: Public apology, but resolve to fight terrorism

One makes errors in judgments and I have my own share of blunders. I am ashamed of my mistakes and must publicly admit those, for life is short and art long.

Please accept my unconditional apology. No better time to do so than on one’s 52nd birthday!

Once in my life when I was angry with her I felt my mother was a whore but that does not mean I was right.

Wendy Johnson and Annie Nocenti services to Balochistan are hidden from none. Likewise, Zafar Baloch has also worked hard and deserves our respects. This is exactly the kind of mistakes we all must avoid.

I also pay salutes to all others who have contributed to the cause including Sardar Ataullah Mengal, Sardar Akhtar Mengal, Khan of Kalat Mir Suleiman Daud, Dr. Malik Baloch, Mir Hasil Bizenjo, Mir Hazar Khan Marri, the late Sher Mohammed Marri, Baloch Human Rights Council activists, workers of the Baloch Republican Party, Balochistan National Party, National Party and Baloch National Front, students of all three factions of the BSO and international activists like Dr. Wahid Baloch, Dr. Jumma Marri, Munir Mengal, Taj Gichki and Mehran Baluch.

All said, we will never tolerate killing of unarmed citizens and political activists by any militant organizations and will continue to expose the terrorists. Our stand is correct and we will defend it without opportunism.

Whether someone likes it or not, we will hold a memorial meeting in Washington DC for all those killed in terrorist violence by the Baloch militants and push the State Department to declare the organizations involved in killing unarmed citizens as terrorists. Hopefully, you will see the results of our works within six months!

Our heads bowed in shame when an innocent Pasthun shopkeeper was gunned down in Turbat; our heads bowed in shame when Professor Nazima Talib was killed in Quetta.

We shall never condone the killing of political activists. This is our promise to Meerain and Gazzain, sons of Mohammed Hussain who was gunned down September 14, 2011 and to Mohammed Jan, son of my late friend Maula Bakhsh Dashti, who was killed July 11, 2010.

If some friends want to settle personal grudges over my past mistakes it is their wish. I will treat everyone with respect other than those who do not show reverence towards life. Such people should remain behind bars, we do not care whosoever they maybe.

Hafeez Hassanabadi an INFORMER, endorsed by Hyrbyair Marri

Date: Mon, 17 Oct 2011 11:48:10 -0700
Subject: Re: che bala

Dear Waja Zubair “Sheh” Oslo:

You are a person of insight and understanding.

I shall never tolerate my Baloch brothers being killed by being called informers and agents. This suicidal policy has been crafted by Hafeez Hassanabadi aka Abdul Hafeez, who has himself been an informer of multiple nations, and endorsed by Hyrbyair Marri.

Not even Brahumdagh Bugti nor Mehran Baluch agree to such reckless policies. You could see the BRP parted ways with the Baloch National Front many months ago.

Killing of extremely poor Punjabis like barbers and tailors or women do not serve the Baloch cause as you can see from reports by Amnesty and Human Rights Watch.

Our values must not clash with the lofty ideals of humanism. Nationalism devoid of humanism in my humble view is Nazism.

We have to take along the political leadership, most importantly the BNP and NP.

Gunning down parliamentary politics is the most nonsensical approach as it breeds anarchy. I hope the BNP, NP and BRP will form a unfied front to field joint candidates.

I have already set the ball rolling and Hafeez Hassanabadi will soon return to St. Petersberg. I am sure the honorable Bijaranis will take good care of him there and we will have a more mature discussions in politics.

Please do inform him we will be closely monitoring his writings, even the ones in which he uses pseudonyms, and will religiously be informing the authorities in Oslo.

If I manage to save one Baloch life that will be the greatest service I can do for my people.

The answer to Balochistan riddle is Independence: For the people

Khair Bux Marri — the answer to Balochistan riddle?
By Nusrat Javeed
Published: October 15, 2011–the-answer-to-balochistan-riddle/
Far more important remains the fact, anyway, that the Prime Minister was reported busy in serious brainstorming with some of his trusted aides and ministers for long hours Friday. He now seems determined to move on Balochistan and claims to have extracted the required clearance from you know who as well. The mass scale alienation of the mass of people in our resource-rich but sparsely populated province is frightening for sure. It cannot be addressed until people like Akhtar Mengal were allowed to operate in a secure space. But Mengal, who remains willing to work within the political structures provided by the constitution of Pakistan, can only dare to return from self-imposed exile, if separatist militants were somewhat appeased. How to approach boys who had gone to mountains to wage separatist battles with the state of Pakistan remains the question? Everyone has been telling Gilani Friday that an ageing veteran of the Baloch struggle, Khair Bux Marri, is the one and only that can help building of workable bridges with ferociously alienated youth of Balochistan. How to approach him for engaging in a serious dialogue? Prime Minister was still looking for a doable answer to this crucial question.

Published in The Express Tribune, October 15th, 2011.

Baba & Aiyash Sons aka Khair Bux Marri & sons are busy meeting Pokis abroad and making all possible plans to kill or arrest “boys who had gone to mountains to wage separatist battles with the state”. The real bottleneck the Baba is facing this time is the youth and poor balochis who genuinely want independence that has become a “haddi” in his kabab called uncrown king of Balochistan to usurp all Oil and Gas reserves. The above statement indicate that Khair Bux and Sons are in direct contact with Pakistani administration and helping in their operations against sarmachars. Pakistani administration is directly promoting Khair Bux Marri family as the Only negotiators of Balochistan. A myth that is been circulated in articles like this. We appeal to Baloch people not to allow yourself to fall in this trap.

Reality is Khair Bux Marri is NOT ” the answer to Balochistan riddle”. The answer is Independent Balochistan for the People, by the people of Balochistan. The answer is NOT the greedy, opportunist Sardars.

Our appeal to Baloch people,”NEVER TRUST SARDARS”.
