Call for Baloch Resistance

The message from “Koh-e-Baloch” (mountains of the Baloch) by the Baloch “Sipah Salar” (commander) Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti is that we have waged a “War of Independence” against our enemy, the Pakistani military dictatorship, to defend the Baloch coast, resources and identity. We are fighting for our rights and protesting the unjust economic and political system of Pakistan. In our Baloch Watan (land), the hills in Makran, Chaghi, Bolan, Kahan, Kohlu and Dera Bugti have become our trenches offering protection to the brave Baloch warriors and creating fear in the hearts of the enemy.

Every able-bodied Baloch from young to old must pick up the gun (and the pen) and fight the battle for our survival in our ancestral land. Our enemy only understands the language of force, and therefore, the Baloch will have to battle it out to defend our 780-kilometers of coastline and riches of gas, oil, gold, silver and copper. Martyrdom is far better than living a life of a minority in our own land. Remember the words of Tipu Sultan: “It is far better to live like a lion for a day than to live like a jackal for a hundred years”.

Be forewarned against the intrigues of fellow Baloch whose conduct is similar to past traitors of the Indian sub-continent like Mir Jaffar and Mir Sadiq. We must learn from the struggle of the Iraqi Kurds who braved the chemical weapons used on them by the tyrant Saddam Hussein; their persistence and immense sacrifices supplemented with American assistance have earned them greater autonomy in today’s Iraq.

We have embarked on a path of armed confrontation with our enemy who is not sincere in resolving the grievances of the Baloch people. Staging peaceful protests, holding negotiations, and sitting in parliamentary committees is a thing of the past now. The time has come for every Baloch to join our armed struggle for freedom. This message is a call for resistance against our enemy's forces who want to capture the land and natural resources of the Baloch people.
