Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch, Chief of Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) condemned, in very strong words, the Turbat Dannuk incident in which an innocent woman was killed and and her four-year child seriously inured.
Death Squad members working under guidance and patronage of Pakistan’s Military Intelligence had raided Jassim’s house at Turbat Dannuk for robbery. However, during this robbery a woman was martyred and a child was seriously injured during the resistance.
The Turbat Dannuk incident came to light due to the resistance and bravery of locals. “We have repeatedly pointed out that behind most of the social evils and looting in Balochistan are the occupying Pakistani forces and its instruments of war which also have the patronage of parliamentary parties,” said Dr Allah Nazar. He added that these type of incidents have become commonplace in occupied Balochistan where innocent Baloch people are killed by Pakistan-backed ‘Death Squad’ members.
In different parts of Balochistan such Death Squad groups are involved in murder, theft, robbery, rapes and other crimes but they enjoy support of the Pakistan Army and intelligence agencies so the parliamentary parties are ready to defend them. After these crimes these people often take refuge in military camps, which are their permanent sanctuaries.
The BLF Chief said that the attack and shooting at the house in Turbat Dannuk, which resulted in the martyrdom of a woman and the wounding of a four-year-old child, was highly reprehensible and heinous crime. At the same time, it is a continuation of the events that have become a daily occurrence in Balochistan.
“These are the hallmarks of slavery. We can certainly find such attitudes towards enslaved nations in the pages of history, but in this modern age, enslaving a country by colonizing is against the human cultural attitudes and values of the 21st century. Even in this modern age, the atrocities that Pakistan is carrying out by occupying and colonizing Balochistan are hardly found in today’s world,” Dr Allah Nazar Baloch said emphatically.
He explained that as the world has progressed in science and technology, many organizations have come into existence to preserve human values and are trying to give human life the highest value. “Despite all these developments, Pakistan has not only maintained colonialism by crushing global values under its military boots, but has also pursued a policy of oppression, violence, and self-harm of the Baloch, by the Baloch in the same way that was meted out to privately-owned slaves,” Dr Allah Nazar added further.
In fact, Dannuk incident is one of the many examples. The attackers were directly linked to Pakistan’s Military Intelligence. They were running various criminal gangs headed by the slain Major Nadeem of Pakistan Army. Major Nadeem was killed in an attack by Baloch freedom fighters. However, as long as the Pakistani occupation remains in Balochistan, its army will not stop using these tools. Using the Death Squads as a weapon in Balochistan will continue to result in violation of Baloch values and traditions of honor and respect.
Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch further added that in the Turbat incident, family members, neighbors and relatives showed courage and bravery and arrested the Pakistani goons. Immediately after the incident, pictures of the attackers and other members of the gang brandishing guns with a Pakistani minister went viral on social media. These elements take refuge in the homes of puppet ministers and military camps after all kinds of criminal activities. “This is an attack on Baloch culture, an attack on our dignity and our honor, and is the genocide of Baloch people,” he added.
