Balochistan: A Democratic, Liberal, and Secular State on the Horizon

It is inevitable that Balochistan will become an independent country. The future of Balochistan is determined by the choices we make today in nation-building. Our decisions could either propel us to emulate the best nations in the world, or drop us in a bleak pit until we cease to exist.

To assure that we are making the right decision for Balochistan, it is imperative that we collectively brainstorm about constructive ideas for our new country. Fortunately, here at the Government of Balochistan (GOB) in Exile, we have already discussed and short-listed various options. However, your constructive critique will be much appreciated; and if your ideas are viable, we shall incorporate them into our future plans.

First and foremost, the Baloch nation must become a part of the global community of nations. We cannot remain isolated for too long. After all, it was our isolation and internal bickering that caused us to loose our sovereignty in the first place. One of the goals of GOB in Exile is to sensitize the public and lawmakers of modern nations about Balochistan, and to pull us out of our current predicament.

In order to attract any sympathy (and investments) from US, European Union, or any other developed country, we have to project that we stand for a modern Balochistan rather than a mirror image of an intolerant Pakistan, Iran or Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.

We should have liberal policies allowing our people freedom to choose rather than choking their human spirit with religion-based restrictions. United Arab Emirates is now one of the favorite holiday destinations for many Americans and Europeans. Over there, you can view men and women playing on beaches in their regular or Islamic swimsuits, they can either go to numerous bars or dance clubs where alcohol is served, or go to the mosque a few yards away and abstain from the various vices that are freely available. It is up to the individual to make a decision about how they want to lead their life; the state does not get involved in such frivolous matters unless an individual violates the law of the land.

Also, it is advisable to have a democratic form of government in Balochistan, which incorporates the Balochi “rawaaj” (culture) instead of a religion. Countries that are plagued by religious intolerance create unnecessary fear among the more liberal nations. The crisis in Algeria, Palestine and possibly in Turkey where the religious based democracy is gaining strength is causing grief for many people around the world.

Religion should be considered a personal choice in Balochistan. We are Baloch first, and then anything else. Among the Baloch race, there are Zikris, Muslims, Hindus, Jews and numerous other religions. No one in Balochistan should have the right to criticize anyone else’s religion. We don’t want to be a nation based on a religious identity.

We believe that Democracy, Liberalism and Secularism are the three platforms that will help the Baloch nation to rise from poverty and ignorance. We must look forward to a bright future, and catch up with the best nations in the world.

  • Dear Mir Said Al Baloshi,

    Your spirit and courage to support Balochistan is much admired. Your ideas to select honest and brave leaders like Mir Chakar Khan Rind, Mir Hamel and Mir Aba to rule Balochistan will be incorporated in due time.

    Right now, we need people like you who are passionate about liberating Balochistan. We have a major task for you. Please use your influence in Oman to offer asylum and citizenship to Nawabzada Gazzain Marri, who is arrested in UAE on request of our enemy, the Pakistani government.

    Best wishes,

  • The people of India will be by your side, and will look forward in building relations with the new Balochistan and a new Sindh.

  • Hello,

    Since the start of our recent “War of Independence” in December 2005, India is the only country in the world that voiced her concern through official diplomatic channels about the massacre of non-combatant Baloch by the Pakistani armed forces.

    This gesture of friendship is something that the Baloch nation will always remember. Not only the Indian government is morally supportive, but the Indian public is on the side of the Baloch too.

    Government of Balochistan in Exile is currently working with a few Indian expatriates in the US and UK to liberate Balochistan. When the first foundation of an independent Balochistan is placed, we can assure you that it’ll have the names of our Indian brothers.

  • i want to second that Mir ji. we have daily posts in www.saag.org which is an analysis group on south asia studies. as a future nation in south asia all balochis should visit there and keep spreading awareness about balochistan. i am an indian has been spreading word to people in other countries by posting in international forums like faithfreedom.org

    hinduunity.com also has a special forum with great updates on balochistan. i want balochistan and sindh to be liberated as quickly as possible without bloodsheed or minimal. it is heartening to know people like said al baloch voice here. more clout more easier way to independence of baloch.

  • Namastey to Baloch friends in India,

    Thanks for recommending important websites to the Baloch community. We shall follow your advice and spread the news of Balochistan on these sites.

    It’ll be nice if both Balochistan and Sindh gain their independence simultaneously and with minimal loss of lives. But, the Persians and the Punjabis are not going to make it easy for anyone; they will ruthlessly kill anyone who resists them.
