Turmoil in Pakistan: Baloch vow fight for independence


onlinejournal.com

Since 1947, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (Land of the Pure), a military dictatorship, has been a fragile entity perpetually on the brink of internal civil war, and constantly at loggerheads with India over contested Kashmir. It is a destabilizing factor on the Asian continent. The recent sacking of Pakistan’s Supreme Court Justice by President Pervez Musharraf in March of 2007 is just another one of many straws weighing on the central government’s back in Islamabad, a portent of what more is to come.

The Sunni dominant country is a nation-state in name only being held together by the force of its military and with the Machiavellian support of the USA. It is a powder keg of conflict pitting Pakistan’s ruthless military against tribal factions in the North along Afghanistan’s border and, in particular, against the Baloch in the South whose homeland is resource rich Balochistan.

Here is another link in reference to Balochistan


The Government of Balochistan in Exile

Balochistan comprises of areas in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. But, Iran and Pakistan forcibly occupied Balochistan and oppressed the Baloch people. The “Baloch War of Independence” has begun, and our freedom fighters are engaged in guerrilla warfare to liberate Balochistan. On April 18, 2006, we declared the Government of Balochistan in Exile, nominated His Highness Mir Suleman Dawood Khan as our King, chose the red, green, blue with sun as our flag, and reinstated Kalat as our capital.
