A comment by Pakistani, SardarWatch response

No doubt that misunderstandings and injustices are likely to happen but it is always in a house matter and should be solved with mutual understanding. Has anyone ever seen the kids calling the neighbours for help in case of differences with their parents? Brahamdagh is not the representative of whole Balochistan and those who know Balochistan well will endorse my point. His late grand father deprived a faction of his own clan Kalpar Bugtis and ousted them from Dera Bugti. What does he say about that injustice before showing concern for ‘Whole’ Balochistan. Everyone knows who is behind the game and soon this insurgency shall die. Insha’Allah —- chasif

SardarWatch response

chasif Sahib,
Your point is well accepted, we at Sardar Watch welcome your concerns for pokistan aka pakistan, it is expected, no surprise. We completely understand from where you are comming.These sardars controle every aspect of baloch life, be it freedom struggle, be it parliamentary politics, economic, social, political etc etc etc. Where are common middle class educated baloch leaders?  Did Pokistan ever thought of promoting middle class educated baloch  to cut to size these overgrown, fat ass, sardars? We common middle class educated baloch people have 2 enemies, Sardars and Pakistan, while both work together and squeez baloch people, we are denied all opportunities to develop and take part in development of Balochistan. Our fight will continue and will see the end of Sardars hegemony in political sphere.


Never trust feudal lords, barons, says Dr. Wahid Baloch as Khan ditches him

He feels cheated.

The man says he worked tirelessly to promote the tribal notable who is said to have used and ditched him reportedly after his need was over.

Dr. Wahid Baloch Monday said, “All these Khans, Nawabs and Sardars think that all ordinary Balochs are their pawn and tools, to be used and discarded as they wish.”

Dr. Baloch requested middle class Baloch to shun these Khans, Nawabs and Sardars and unite themselves and take the leadership in their own hand instead of becoming their pawns.

“My example is an excellent lesson to be learned. I absolutely regret what I did for this Khan and I’ll make sure I will not repeat this mistake again in my life,” Dr. Baloch said.

Dr. Baloch, who is founder of the Baloch Society of North America says he had promoted the tribal notable the Khan of Kalat Mir Suleman Daud Ahmadzai as “His Highness” for six years now. He now vows he will not call the Khan “His Highness.”

Unlike Mahatma Gandhi of India who left his life of comforts for his people, most Baloch feudals and barons appear adamant to keep their decadent titles — nawab, sardar and mir — and privileges.

Many of them, called parasites of Baloch society, need a “munshi” or secretary even for small tasks.
