After this attack, the Pakistan Army personnel opened indiscriminate firing on the unarmed Baloch population in the locality. During this firefighting the Pakistani soldiers captured a young Baloch named Muhammad Hayat in front of his mother and sister and shot him dead after ruthlessly torturing him. “It has always been the modus operandi of Pakistan Army that after they are defeated by Baloch fighters; they take revenge in the form of butchering innocent Baloch citizens,” said Jeehand Baloch.
Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) are fighting for the independence of Balochistan that has been under illegal occupation of Pakistan since March 27, 1948. Balochistan has historically been an independent nation and even during British colonial rule it had separate a treaty with the British. Balochistan attained independence from British colonial rule on August 11, 1947 but its independence was short lived as it was captured by Pakistan. Baloch revolutionaries have been fighting for their independence ever since Pakistan occupied their motherland.
