BLF’s July-September 2021 Quarterly Report and list of its armed activities against occupying Pakistani forces in Pakistan-occupied Balochistan
The Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) was formed to reinstate the separate Baloch identity and regain Balochistan’s sovereignty from occupier Pakistani regime. With its establishment, BLF, along with armed struggle, began to create political and ideological awareness about the Baloch nation and has endeavored to bring Baloch people from all walks of life together to join the armed struggle, so that the masses consciously, politically and ideologically get involved in the resistance. Because, the struggle for independence is impossible without the participation of masses.
On the fundamental principle of freedom for occupied Balochistan, BLF is educating Balochistan to be ideologically and politically aware. Ideologically motivated BLF fighters, along with armed resistance are expanding the independence struggle with political awareness across Balochistan.
Balochistan is now destroying the occupying Pakistan state’s army and responding in a befitting manner to their parliamentarian tools, death squads, religious extremists including countering the occupying state’s propaganda machinery and its fake narrative.
Organization’s fundamental principle is to ensure vetting and educating BLF fighters enough so that the weapon in their hands must remain a weapon in the hands of a revolutionary and their steps may never sway defending motherland.
Today, across the length and breadth of Pakistan-occupied Balochistan, BLF’s brave fighters are present on the ground with their revolutionary weapon in defense of their country against Pakistan’s regular army and other security forces. Certainly, fighting on various fronts at once against Pakistan Army, federalists, local agents, informers, death squads, drug dealers and religious extremists is difficult. But at every given moment, BLF fighters are sacrificing their lives and vigorously leading the Baloch national struggle on the principles of the organization towards the ultimate goal.
The Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) carried out forty eight lethal attacks against the Pakistani forces during the third quarter of 2021 from July till September in which more than seventy nine Pakistani soldiers were killed and dozens injured.

The company is trying to build a road from the airport to D-Baloch and a new settlement called the Mirani Housing Scheme, five kilometers along the same route, where a conspiracy to resettle non-Baloch is being carried out.
