Balochistan: A Pearl Among the Debris of Nations of Hate, Religious Extremism and Terrorism

A Baloch considers himself or herself a Baloch first, and then anything else. He lives by his tribal code, respects his cultural norms (rawaaj), and believes in egalitarianism. He could be a citizen of any of the numerous countries in the world, but his loyalty lies to his ethnicity, his culture, and Balochistan. One of the goals of the Government of Balochistan in Exile is to unite the Baloch people from around the world so we can collectively liberate Balochistan from its colonizers, the Iranians and the Pakistanis.

Balochistan’s strength and uniqueness in the region lies in the fact that the Baloch culture is secular and tolerant. To a Baloch, religion is a very private matter and they don’t appreciate when others try to impose their beliefs on them. Many who do practice their faith, are moderately religious but they are quite spiritual. It is not unusual to find a Baloch who is an Agnostic, Atheist, Christian, Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Zikri or some other belief.

INTOLERANT NATIONS
Unfortunately, the region in which Balochistan resides is infested with religiously intolerant people. In Iran, most Baloch and Kurds (who are moderate Sunni Muslims) are persecuted on religious grounds due to their conflicting religious beliefs with the majority Shia Muslims. The Iranians either eliminated or expelled the Bahais, Christians and the Jews from Iran. Now they are adamant about “cleansing” Iran of the non-Shia Baloch and Kurds.

In Pakistan, the Christians, Hindus and Parsis are either forced to convert to Islam or imprisoned under the blasphemy laws. Out of fear of persecution by the government or lynching by the Islamic zealots, members of other religions keep a low profile and live the rest of their lives in fear.

The military personnel in Pakistan are systematically trained to hate Hindus and make “Allaho Akbar” as their battle cry to fight India in case of war. These days, they are being trained to think of Baloch as “pygmies” and godless people who worship their Sardars. The Punjabi officer of the Frontier Corp regularly brainwash their Pashtun soldier to kill the Baloch because it is “Jihad” (holy war) to purify Pakistan of infidels.

It is customary for every “mullah” (preacher) in mosques throughout Pakistan to preach hate towards America, India and Israel (in that specific order). They encourage their congregation that it is the duty of every Muslim to wage Jihad against the “Kafirs” (infidels) and kill every American, Indian and Israeli on the planet.

During a Friday prayer at a mosque in the F-7/2 sector of Pakistan’s most liberated city, Islamabad, a learned scholar was giving the usual sermon. An American stood up and objected. He stated that he is an American Muslim and it is not right to preach hate and killing of innocent people. This gentleman didn’t realize that he was standing among intolerant people; the situation became tense and his friend whisked him out of the mosque before the enraged mob could lynch him to death.

During the Taleban’s reign of Afghanistan, the local authorities persecuted the Hazara tribe (descendents of the Genghis Khan the Great of Mongolia) on the bases of their oriental race and religious beliefs. To express their intolerance, the Talebans even decided to desecrate Buddhist religious artifacts by destroying the world’s largest statue of Lord Buddha.

RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM
A liberal Iran, which was ruled by the late Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, was toppled and replaced by an Islamic theocracy headed by the late Ayatullah Khomeini. The Iranian clergy imposed rules to promote religious extremism resulting in deaths or displacement of its citizens to other parts of the world. Once they purged their country of moderate Muslims, they embarked on a program to turn their country into a center for international terrorism.

In Afghanistan, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Mujahideen forces began to form a democratic government. Pakistan didn’t have good relations with some of the Mujahideen commanders, especially with the late Ahmed Shah Masood. Therefore, it was not in Pakistan’s long-term strategic interest to allow a stable Mujahideen government to flourish in Afghanistan.

Pakistani intelligence agencies built over 4,000 “madrassas” (religious seminaries) throughout Pakistan, primarily in the Pashtun dominated areas. These madrassas owned the land on which they were built, and they were self-sustaining. They were usually constructed using two economically viable models. One was built as a two-story building so they can have shops at the ground level for rent, and the top floor to have classrooms and dormitories. The second model was built as one huge courtyard surrounded by classrooms and dormitories, and the outside parameter had shops to rent. It was important that there were enough shops to rent in order to sustain these madrassas.

The “Talebs” (students) were systematically taught religious intolerance and extremism towards moderate Muslims like the Mujahideens of Afghanistan and Hindus of India.

Pashtun Talebans (group of Talebs), mainly from the Afghan refugee camps, were brainwashed into believing that Afghan Mujahideens were not true Muslims, and therefore, they should not rule an Islamic Afghanistan. These enraged Talebans returned to Afghanistan and toppled the newly formed Mujahideen government, and governed Afghanistan until the Americans ended their rule. Meanwhile, the Punjabi Talebs were sent into India to commit terrorist activities primarily in the Kashmir region.

These madrassas evolved into centers that trained its students in religious intolerance, extremism and terrorism. Gradually they turned their attention inwards and started to turn against those who differed in their beliefs, especially the Shia Muslims of Pakistan. The root cause of sectarian intolerance and violence in Pakistan are these madrassas. They have now turned into centers of religious extremism.

GLOBAL TERRORISM
The world’s two most dangerous terrorist organizations are Iran’s Pasdar force and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). They are mainly targeting Afghanistan, India, Israel and the US. The Iranians are supporting terrorist activities in Afghanistan, Iraq and Israel; and the Pakistanis are stirring trouble in Afghanistan and India. Since the US forces are present in both Afghanistan and Iraq, the Iranians and Pakistanis are fighting a proxy war with the Americans.

Pakistan’s ISI is collaborating with Al-Qaeda to spread terrorism around the globe. The September 11, 2001 attack on the US was planned and executed by ISI using Muslims of non-Pakistani origin so that the blame is placed on those countries that have cordial relations with the US.

Policy makers in the US are mistaken to consider Pakistan as their “ally against terrorism”. American taxpayers are paying billions of dollars to Pakistan each year to combat terrorism. But, in essence, Al-Qaeda is Pakistan’s goose that lays golden eggs; so, why would they foolishly kill the goose to appease the Americans? Therefore, it is not in Pakistan’s interest to end global terrorism, instead they are keen to fuel it.

Pakistan knows very well that they can cover their tracks and easily deceive the world community into believing that they are doing everything possible to nab members of Al-Qaeda. Whenever there is pressure from the US, the Pakistani forces go on a killing spree into the villages of Waziristan and massacre innocent men, women and children, and afterwards claim that they killed Al-Qaeda fighters.

The world has not seen the worse side of global terrorism yet. Nuclear-armed Pakistan collaborating with Iran to build their nuclear arms industry has upped the stakes. Now, the world’s two major terrorist countries have a-bombs, and they are ready to blackmail the global community into submission. Time is of the essence, and the world powers must act fast to neutralize both Iran and Pakistan.

CONCLUSION
The only ray of hope to stabilize the Middle East and South Asian region is to end the Iranian and Pakistani regimes, dismantle their nuclear arms, and revise the curriculum at religious seminaries. It is a long process to retrain the extremist Talebs to be tolerant. But, the rapid economic development in Balochistan will bring positive change, prosperity and liberalism in the region.

  • when Taliban Government fall, Mullah Omar and his gang ran from Kendahar with the help of Pakistani ISI to Pishin (A Pashtun area in Balochistan, adjacent to Afghan Border) and since than he and his other Taliban Commander and most Taliban figures are hiding there and freely roaming around in Pashtun areas of Balochistan including Quetta with the help of the Pashtun Governor of Balochistan (A Taliban Supporter) and ISI.

    When Tora Bora was bombed by American Bombers with daisy cutters, Osma bin Laden and his lieutenant Amen Al-zawahiri escaped with the help of ISI and were given safe heaven in Waziristan with all of their prominent Al-Qaeda figure and foreign Terrorists. He is still there with full knowledge and protection by Pakistani ISI and its Military Intelligence (MI).

    The world must not be fooled anymore by Pakistan. The only way to finish Terrorism is to uproot the whole tree which is Pakistan and Iran. Cutting few branches of this terrorist tree is not good enough and it will grow again. A complete erradication is must. The desintegration and destruction of Pakistan and Iran is the only way to end the global terrorism.

  • Dear Friend of Balochistan,

    Thank you for your informative comment. During President George Bush’s visit to Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai made a bold move; instead of going through the proper diplomatic channels, he went ahead and directly informed President Bush about Pakistan’s involvement in conducting a proxy war with Afghanistan and the US.

    It is imperative that people like you and I should inform the public and policy makers around the world about clandestine activities of the Iranians and Pakistanis in promoting global terrorism. If we don’t stop these rogue countries today and just sit on the sidelines to watch what happens next, then we are bound to be their next victim.

    Let us all unite and make this world a safe place.

  • I am going to have to agree with this article and the activities of the Paki and Iranian Inteligence Services and, the two faces of their governments which one can only describe as coward and evil.

    As an Afghan National, who sits with Afghans from all ethnic backgrounds, Pashtun to Tajik from Uzbek to Turkik OR Bloch to Hazara or the Sikhs, and I fell as we are one.

    I fell, I belive actualy, that Pakistan unrealisticly tried to use religion and the aftermath of the Soviet Afghan wars, the remenants of the Afghan fighters to stir up hatred, and add to the destruction of Afghanistan which was simply a post conflict state with over 5000 years proud history, and on its way to recovering during the early 90s. But as we all know that Pakistans blind policies has backfired, thanks to pakis nature and unprofessional manner that can only be pakistani.

    Pakistan has many bad fellings towards Afghanistan and its linked to history, as countles Pakistanis were slaoughtered by Afghan Kings and Emperors of the past, who brought Muslim rule and also civilisation to that part of the world which is the indian sub continent.

    Iran also has simillar historic fellings as the Afghans kings from Kandahar and Ghazni, became part of the Persian empire and eventualy strike it from within and killed 1000's, numerious times.

    But like Afghan President Karzai said, forget the medi-evil times when Kings and emporers increased their power and territory by force and there was no rule no law no human rights, and we must start with a fresh view of the modern world.

    However the Pakistanis are pursueing the lost ideology of supporting ellements within Afghanistan to create destruction for the Afghan people and the western Helpers that are based there.

    I wish countries like pakistan which tis very foundation is based on religion that makes makes it not a state and its nationals not real nationals of a state start to undrstand and see the world in a civil way.

    In Afghanistans case, I wish they stop stealing Afghan artifacts, history, most importantly the Afghan kings and heroes names, to use them as their Nuclear Missile names, Never mind if Pakistan does not have their own heroes, Call their missiles Nawaz, Musharaf, Qaedi Azam etc, but not Ghaznavi, Abdali, Ghuri, Suri or Rumi, ehich are all Afghans their tribes live in central and sothersn Afghanistan. Ahhhhhh, I tell you what I have a casin who is older then the so called state that calls itself Pakiiistan,,,,,,The biggest violaters of copy rights and every other, Paki theives

  • It is so great to see many like minded people who see and undrstand the world in a realistic way. And the true colours and the hiden evil faces of those who are blind, and with their eyes shut walking in the dark in search of light.

    I have posted a comment ehre previously and though I will add some simillar pages which are open to the reality of this world and our time.

    Please visit www.afghansite.com and then the politics section there, Please also visit www.sabawoon.com and www.afghanmania.com.

    All the Best, and thank you for a wonderful site,

  • Dear Sal,

    Thank you for your comments. It is in Pakistan’s interest to have a weak government in Afghanistan.

    During the Taleban rule of Afghanistan, you could use Pakistani currency in the Kabul and Qandahar markets, make local phone calls from there to Peshawar and Quetta respectively, and the Pakistani banks in Afghanistan refused to accept Afghani currency! The Pakistanis were definitely preparing to colonize Afghanistan, just like they colonized Balochistan. But, thanks to the US involvement in Afghanistan, the Americans put a damper on Pakistan’s evil plans.

    There are three things about Afghanistan that irks the Pakistani government:
    1. The Pakistanis will never forgot that on September 30, 1947, at the UN General Assembly meeting, Afghanistan caste a negative vote to allow Pakistan to be admitted to the United Nations;
    2. In 1949, Afghanistan’s “Loya Jirga” (Grand Council) declared the Durand Line Agreement invalid and wanted to merge Pakistan's Pashtun areas into Afghanistan; and
    3. Afghanistan’s cordial relations with India, Pakistan’s sworn enemy.

    The forward-looking Afghan President Hamid Karzai is certainly a man who loves his country and will do his best to bring Afghanistan into the 21st century. Unfortunately, the Pakistani intelligence agencies are supporting the Al-Qaeda and Taleban elements to destabilize Afghanistan. The Americans have to realize that the Pakistanis are not sincere about eradicating terrorism from the region; in fact, it is the Pakistanis who are fueling terrorism in both Afghanistan and India.

    It is unfortunate that the Pakistanis are robbing Afghanistan of its heritage. Furthermore, it’s a shame that the Pakistanis don’t have any leaders who can make them proud. So, it’s very convenient to steal names of Afghan leaders of the past and call them as their own. Here is a list of just a few Pakistanis who are known around the world:

    1. General Tikka Khan, Butcher of Bengal
    2. Zulfiqar Ali Bhotto, Butcher of Balochistan
    3. General Hamid Gul, Destroyer of Afghanistan
    4. Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, Black Marketer of Nuclear Technology

    And, you can easily add a few dozen more names of evil people from Pakistan to this list.

    Basically, Pakistan has caused grief for everyone in this world. It is time for all of us to realize that the evil country of Pakistan should be wiped off the face of the earth, once and for all.

  • Dear Mr Baloch,

    Sir, THANKS A MILLION FOR A REPLYing TO MY COMMENTS AND VIEWS AND SHEDING FURTHER LIGHT IN SITUATIONS SUCH AS NOW AND THE PAST WHICH WILL CERTAINLY AFFECT THE FUTURE OF ALL CONCERNED IN OUR REGION.


    I ABSOLUTLY AGREE WITH YOUR EVERY WORD, AND I AM NOT THE ONLY AFGHAN WISHING YOU THE VERY BEST FOR BALOCHISTAN AND EVERY BALOCH, AND HAVE MUTUAL UNDRSTANDINGS OF THE COWARDS AND BACK STABERS OF THIS WORLD.

    DEAR BROTHER, BELIVE ME WHEN IS AY, IN THE MID 90 BETWEEN 1996 THE RISE OF THE TALIBAN AND 2001 THE FALL OF THE TALIBAN, FROM EARLY DAY I COULD CLEARLY SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN AFGHANISTAN AND WHERE WILL THE IMAGE OF PAKISTAN END UP, LIKE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PAKISTAN TODAY.

    I USE TO SPEAK TO MY COLLEAGUES AND FIREND IN THE BRITISH V ISLAND WHERE I WAS RESIDING AND SAY JUST COUNT THE DAYS WHEN THE TALIBAN WILL BANISH AND PAKISTAN WHICH PLAYS A 2 FACE GAME END UP WITH A DIRTY IMAGE IN THE WORLD ARENA.

    I DID NOT HAVE ANY INTEREST IN POLITICS AND WAS BUSY COMPLETING MY HIGHER EDUCATION AND WORK, BUT THROUGH WIDE RANGE OF MEDIA I COULD GET TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING, AND I NATURALY FELT THIS WANT GOING TO LAST. THE REASON I FELT LIKE THIS WAS BECASUE I KNOW THE SPIRIT OF MY PEOPLE, WHILE A BUNCH OF THEM CAN BECOME LOST, AND CAN BE RENTED TO DESTROY THEIR OWN AS WE CALL THEM IN AFGHANISTAN "WATAN FOROSH". THE MAJORITY OF THE AFGHANS I COULD SEE WILL SUPPORT AND ARE SUPPORTING A DIFFERENT IDEOLOGY, INCLUDING THE PASHTOON, THE TAJIK UZBEK HAZARA, BALOCH AND THE REST. AND THIS IS WHAY I COULD SEE PAKISTANS DEFEATED FACE THAT WE SEE TODAY SOME 8 YEARS AGO, AND WHEN THE DAY CAME, AND THE UNFORTUNATE WAY THAT IT CAME 5 YEARS AGO, I PARTIED LIKE I HAVE DONE IN THE PAST LIKE MANY OF US AFGHANS NEW THIS AND DONE THE SAME.

    I WISH THE BALOCH BORTHERS THE SAME SPIRIT, AND MUCH SUCCESS, AND MAY YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.

    BEST REGARDS

  • Dear Sal,

    Thank you and our Afghan brothers for supporting the Baloch struggle. The two-faced Pakistanis are very cunning. They have fooled the world for a long time. But, their time is up now because the world knows that a Pakistani is a coward, backstabbing terrorist.

    It is amazing that you could feel the vibe of the Afghan people and knew that the days of the Talebans were numbered. I’ve been to Afghanistan, and I can tell you that the Afghans are a great nation - a nation that fought against a superpower and won! I believe that Afghanistan has a very bright future if Pakistan is dissolved. Otherwise, the Pakistani intelligence agencies will continue their acts of terrorism to keep Afghanistan destabilized.

    When Balochistan gains its independence, we also plan to have a grand party. We will dance the night on the streets until dawn, and then we will begin the new day as a free Baloch.

    May your words for our success soon become a reality.
