بـــي مــوت مُــئــا ، تـو لاءِ ڪُــٺـــا انـســان هــزاريــن مــان نــه رڳـــو،
هـــــن دنـيـا ۾ اي ديــس ! هُـيـا نــادان هــزاريــن مــان نــه رڳــو .
Deeply shocked, I strongly condemn the barbaric killing of three Baloch nationalist leaders, Ghulam Mohammad Baloch, Sher Mohammad Baloch and Lala Muneer Baloch, by Pakistan’s intelligence agencies. They were kidnapped from the office of their solicitor about a week before they were killed brutally.
Another incident which has uncovered the ugly face of Pakistan’s intelligence agencies which have been involved in killing of thousands of people of the country. However, their rage falls more on the ones who raise voice against victimization of their land and struggle for the rights of their people. Samiullah Kalhoro, a Sindhi nationalist, also fell prey to the same monster not many years back. Dr. Safdar Sarki remained in illegal detention by the intelligence agencies. He was released when the SC took notice of his disappearance.
The martyred Baloch leaders had been quite active in the struggle against the operation in their land carried out by the Pakistani military for the last many years. Several Baloch people have been killed and many arrested by the agencies.
Who can forget the case of Zarina Mari?
The only ‘crime’ they commit is that they speaks against the victimization of their people, land and natural resources. They, like Sindhis, want the ownership of their natural resources and wish to utilize them for the welfare and development of their people. Is this a crime?
Pakistan is — let’s face it — a country where nations have always been oppressed in the name of (one-)nationhood and religion! However, the malicious intentions of the controllers of the country have been uncovered and the world has started paying heed to the cries coming out from the lands of Sindhi and Baloch nations.
Martyrs are the people who die fighting for the rights of their land and their people; all other definitions are faulty and misguiding!
Every martyr challenges the killers in the following words of Shaikh Ayaz:
تون چئه نه ڪُڇان، تُو ن چئه نه لُڇان، پر توکان هڪڙي ڳالهه پڇان؟
تُون ڪنهن ڪنهن کي خاموش ڪندين؟ اعلان هزارين مان نه رڳو!
I reiterate my words and condemn severly killing of the three brave nationalists. However, I believe, there are thousands of such brilliant people who would not hesitate to die in the name of their land… I salute those sons of the soil!
