  • Human rights violations in the Balochistan province of Pakistan have drawn global concern
  • Mazdak and his wife are in India to create awareness about the Baloch Freedom Movement

Sept 11, 2016: For the centuries people of Baloch origin are living in the places like Delhi, western UP namely Meerut, Baghpat and Muzaffarnagar in India. They are said to be residing here since Babur invaded India in 1526. They came here with Babur as his army and since then they got settled here.

Baloch covers 45 percent of the area of Pakistan but their culture is completely different from rest of Pakistan. Therefore Balochistan could never become a part of Pakistan and was taken by force by Pakistan’s army. Most of the inhabitants of the province are- Pashtuns and Brahuis. Even the name ‘’Balochistan’’ itself means ‘’the land of Baloch’’, so Baloch people think of themselves different from Pakistan.

Activist Mazdak Dilshad Baloch- a prominent voice has come up with his struggle to liberate the province from Pakistan and therefore he also wants to spread a message in India among the people who have their roots in Balochistan. Meerut, Baghpat, and Muzaffarnagar, Mazdak- he has travelled to all these places in India and has interacted with people of Baloch origin regarding atrocities with their community by Pakistani forces, mentioned TOI report.

The story of Mazdak is similar to thousands of Baloch people who have sought asylum in different parts of the world after being hounded by the Pakistan army. Mazdak’s father was abducted, and his mother was harassed by the Pakistani forces. Not just that, their property was damaged too. The family had to seek asylum in Canada where they reside now. So to accomplish their dream of freedom from Pakistan army, Mazdak and his wife are in India to create awareness about the Baloch Freedom Movement.

‘I am thankful to them for showing overwhelming sensitivity to our common cause. I am sure, in times to come, we will visit many more villages in the whole region and give the movement a proper name and shape,’ said Mazdak to TOI.

People of India have shown a great enthusiasm to support the Baloch Cause and they are with Mazdak in this Baloch freedom movement.

    I can’t quite comprehend what drives a government(obviously composed of people and in the case of paksitan,hateful fascist barabarians) to kill the innocents?

    And we as governments of the world are letting them?

As tension between India and Pakistan escalates over scrapping of special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Islamabad has hastily reactivated nearly a dozen terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and close to the International Border along Jammu and Kashmir.

During the past week, hectic movement of terrorists has been seen around these camps which were almost shut in the wake of May 2019 deadline set up by Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an inter-governmental body based in Paris. Top intelligence sources said Indian security forces have been put on high alert as terror camps in Kotli, Rawalkot, Bagh and Muzzafrabad in PoK area, bordering Line of Control (LoC), have been reactivated with the ostensible backing of Pakistan army.

Two days back, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had stated in the joint session of Parliament that Islamabad would not be responsible if Pulwama type (or even bigger) terror attack is executed in India. The all important statement of Imran Khan has virtually granted liberty to terror outfits such as Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and their handlers in Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency of Pakistan, to reactivate training camps and launch pads.

Intelligence reports reveal that more than 150 cadres of JeM, LeT and veteran Taliban have reportedly gathered at Fagoosh and Kund camps near Kotli and Shavai Nallah, Abdullah Bin Masud camps in Muzaffarabad area. JeM’s chief Maulana Masood Azhar’s brother Ibrahim Athar was also spotted in the PoK area, intelligence reports said.

Highly placed sources in the security establishment said National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, who is currently in the Valley, had a high level meeting with senior officials which included Intelligence Bureau Director Arvind Kumar, Director General of Police, Jammu and Kashmir, Dilbagh Singh, and top Army brass. The NSA discussed security strategy and terror threat from across the border in the backdrop of government’s bold decisions taken on Jammu and Kashmir.

Sources said security agencies acknowledge the fact that in the cross-border shelling during the past fortnight, a few groups of fidayeen of JeM and LeT reportedly infiltrated into the high reaches of Kashmir. Various strategies have been put into action to neutralise these foreign mercenaries.

Earlier last week, Indian forces foiled major infiltration bid by Pakistan’s Border Action Team (BAT) on forward post along the LoC in the Keran Sector, killing at least five intruders. In a week’s time BAT made four infiltration bids which were successfully foiled by Indian forces.

Apart from the LoC area, terror outfits continue to train cadres inside and outside PoK. In Khyber Pakhtunwa area, veteran Taliban cadres have a strong foothold. Revealing details of terror activity in Mansehra (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), sources said terrorist training camps are located in Jangal Mandi, Shinkiari, Boi, Garhi Habibullah, Oghi, Elaqa-e-Ghair, Attar Shisha, Skardu base camp, Andher Bela and more.

Sources said that several terror camps have been dismantled while in some camps, there is no activity at present. Although under pressure of possible sanctions by FATF, the list of active camps in Pakistan has been reduced significantly, but the fact remains that terror factories still continue to operate on its soil.

Intelligence agencies have handed over a precise list of operational and non-operational terror camps to Indian security forces, sources added. (IANS)
