BANGKOK CONFERENCE: Uprising in Balochistan

Balochistan, March 15: Ignore the people of the region and exploit the natural resources this is what is happening in Balochistan province in Pakistan. The Balochs have been living in misery since 1948, ever since the free and sovereign state ruled by the Khan of Kalat was forcibly annexed by Pakistan. The Balochs have been waging a low level insurgency against the forceful occupation of their homeland since then. Prince Abdul Karim Khan opposed the atrocities of Pakistan and launched the first Baloch National Resistance Movement in May 1948.The movement, whether armed or political, is their struggle for human rights, honor, identity and national salvation.It seeks to control Baloch affairs and destiny economically, politically, socially and culturally.
