Dr Allah Nazar Baloch criticized the Pakistan Army in strong words for desecration of the dead bodies of Baloch sons by burying them in a trench, calling this act as unethical and inhumane. Dr Allah Nazar is the pro-independence leader of Balochistan who is leading Balochistan’s independence struggle against Pakistan.
“By disregarding international norms, war ethics and laws, not only exposes the barbarism of Pakistan but it also makes the belief of the Baloch nation stronger that living a life within this state is an utmost humiliation and disgrace for Baloch people,” said Dr Allah Nazar Baloch, expressing his anger over the treatment Baloch martyrs by the Pakistan Army in Tump.
Dr. Allah Nazar said that not handing over the dead bodies of martyrs to their families raises the suspicion that Pakistan had used chemical weapons. “Because, in the battlefield, despite having a huge number of personnel armed with modern weapons, the death toll of the enemy is always much higher.”
He added that it is disgusting that Pakistanis drag the dead bodies of Baloch martyrs for miles. “Instead of handing the dead bodies to the families they (Pakistan Army) burn the dead bodies of martyrs and disgrace them by digging trenches with tractors and dumping them. They use the terms like Islamic, democratic, and Reyasat-e-Madina (the city-state at the time of the Prophet PBUH), yet it never awakens the conscience of religious leaders and they don’t dare to speak against all these evil deeds. They never see the contempt for Islam and humanity by the army. The so-called Baloch nationalists (Pakistani parliamentarians) are also a partner in these crimes because Baloch youth are not sacrificing their lives for one particular class or region, in fact, their sacrifices are for the greater cause of Balochistan where Baloch are taking part without discriminating on the bases of colour, caste, and race,” said Dr Allah Nazar Baloch.
Dr. Allah Nazar further explained that Pakistan had been violating war rules and ethics for the last twenty years, but the Baloch guerrillas, despite being a weaker opponent against a powerful enemy, had given top priority to all international rules and conventions. They never disgraced the dead bodies of killed soldiers. Following the international conventions, the surrendered soldiers, after going through fair trials, were released alive. But there is not a single example from Pakistan. It indulges in enforced disappearance of innocent people and keeps them in torture chambers for years. It is implementing the policy of collective punishment on the entire Baloch nation, said Dr Allah Nazar.
Dr. Allah Nazar said that the incident in Tump is not the first; Pakistan had been involved in war crimes, human rights violations, and genocide for a long time. “We don’t regret that Irfan Baloch and Noor Khan Baloch embraced martyrdom, but we resent the fact that we are fighting against an enemy that has no ethics and humanity left in it. The coward enemy, instead of handing over the Baloch martyrs bodies to their families, dumped them in a trench which further exposes the war crimes of Pakistan. Pakistan should realize that war crimes and barbarism would not make the Baloch nation surrender and keep them enslaved forever. There is not a single instance in human history where living nations were kept enslaved indefinitely with inhumanity and terror.”
