Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti killed in battle to liberate Balochistan


KALAT, Balochistan – The Pakistani military dictatorship of General Pervez Musharraf and his ethnic Punjabi brethrens have succeeded in killing the icon of the Baloch freedom struggle -- Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti.

Today, the oppressed Baloch nation is mourning the loss of their leader who sacrificed his life to liberate his people from the chains of slavery imposed by the Muslim Punjabi Raj in Pakistani-occupied Balochistan.

Mir Chengez Zehri sent a message to the Government of Balochistan (GOB) in Exile in which he stated:

“Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti died, and he proved to be the TIGER OF BALOCHISTAN…”

An Indian well-wisher, Bakhtawar Singh emailed the following message:

“It is very shocking to hear the news about the assassination of great Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti at the hands of blood thirsty Pak security forces. We share your grief and pain and express our sincere solidarity with the people of Balochistan. His martyrdom will further strengthen your struggle.”

But, the jubilant Muslim Punjabis on the other hand are celebrating their victory. Following email messages are just a few of the hundreds of derogatory emails received by GOB (Exile) from suspect Muslim Punjabis:

“Your terrorist Sardar is dead, I’m going for sajji in celebration.” By Anonymous

“Congrats brothers. One terrorist down…others to follow.” By UJMi

The truth is that the Punjabi occupation forces in Balochistan have won this battle, and they are boasting their victory. They believe that the Baloch are defeated and will tuck their tail between their legs and run away (a typical Punjabi cultural trait). But, they are underestimating the Baloch culture.

It is time for every red-blooded Baloch men, women and children to honor the death of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti by making all necessary preparation for the next battle of this long and arduous “Baloch War of Independence”. In keeping with Baloch tradition, attacking innocent Pakistani or Iranian civilians is not permitted, and it is considered terrorism. The Baloch nation is at war with the Government of Pakistan and Iran, and the Baloch warriors must wage battles with the governments of these two rogue Islamic Republics.

All those Baloch people who have pledged their allegiance to the Punjabi-dominated Pakistani government and the Persian-dominated Iranian government are traitors. The Baloch people must purge Balochistan from these traitors, as they will continue to betray the Baloch cause and create obstacles for the freedom struggle. They must receive punishment for their role in joining the enemy of the Baloch nation.

Mir Azaad Khan Baloch, the general secretary of the newly formed GOB (Exile) has the following message for the Baloch people:

“Today is one of the saddest day in the history of Balochistan. We lost a great Baloch leader, Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, in a battle against the enemy forces. He fought for justice like a brave Baloch warrior. He demanded that the oppressive Pakistani government must treat the downtrodden Baloch people equitably.

“He believed in his principals and honorably died for his conviction. He certainly earned the world’s respect for standing against a strong and powerful adversary and protested the injustices and atrocities committed against the Baloch nation by the ruthless military controlled Pakistani government.

“He is the Jesus Christ of the Baloch nation who sacrificed his own life to save his people. He always preached for peaceful resolution through dialogue with the Pakistani occupying forces to address Baloch grievances. But, the arrogant Punjabi Raj refused to listen to him, and instead they wanted to eliminate him for good. He finally realized that the Baloch people would always be subjugated as the slaves of the Punjabi Raj as long as Balochistan remains an occupied territory. And, he died in battle like a true Baloch warrior fighting for the liberation of Balochistan.

“GOB (Exile) and its council members extend our sincere condolences to the bereaved family of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti and to the entire Baloch nation.

“We pray to God and the Ancestors of the Baloch that they rest his soul in peace, and bring him eternal happiness for being a true martyr. May the ultimate sacrifice of every Baloch martyr give courage to the Baloch nation to avenge his or her death and liberate Balochistan.”

  • What does this mean for the indpendence movement?

    In the last month or so, as well, there have been several reports of Bugti supporters surrendering or laying down their arms.

    What is happening on the ground there?

    {{Pakistan, another unnatural state, would also lose its Baluch territory to Free Baluchistan. The remaining "natural" Pakistan would lie entirely east of the Indus, except for a westward spur near Karachi.}}

    I hope that the troubles following Nawab Bugti's death do not flare up too much. The only way forward has to be a political solution which has the interests of the Baluch people at its forefront. Have a look at my blog on the Nawab Bugti's death and feel free to leave a comment.

  • It is a shocking news.I would like to salute Mr. Bugti on behalf of all the Indians.In our South Asian culture ( India , Baluchistan) elders are shown respect and their feet are touched.For the first time we have seen a 80 years old elder( who was ex- chief minister)was killed .Not even kids were spared.Bravo , Musharaf - you have no idea where Bin laden is hiding but you had definite idea about your own ex- chief minister.Musharaf told that Mr. Bugti wont know what hit him.Let me tell Musharaf , Bugti would never die because he has become immortaal in the heart of crores of Asians who admire his self less service to his people - The Baloch people.

  • Kashmir Bachao Andolan, Pune based think-tank and publishers of the Web-newspaper, 'The Kashmir Telegraph', are deeply perturbed by this premeditated cold-blooded murder and condemn it in strongest of terms. We join the people of Baluchistan in condemning this brutal outrage on the Baloch people, Romeet K Watt, Chief Editor, 'The Kashmir Telegraph' said.

    Kashmir Telegraph News Service (

    Pune (India), August 29, 2006: The brutal and inhumane killing of 80-year old veteran Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti - a powerful chief of the Bugti tribe and head of Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP)- by Pakistan Establishment is a big setback for the aspirations of the people of Baluchistan.

    Kashmir Bachao Andolan, Pune based think-tank and publishers of the Web-newspaper, 'The Kashmir Telegraph', are deeply perturbed by this premeditated cold-blooded murder and condemn it in strongest of terms.

    We join the people of Baluchistan in condemning this brutal outrage on the Baloch people, Romeet K Watt, Chief Editor, 'The Kashmir Telegraph' said.

    "Nawab Akbar Bugti martyrdom will inspire the Baloch people in fighting against the inequality and oppression of the Baloch people by Pakistan and its tyrant Punjabi institutions." Watt added.

    The Kashmir Telegraph firmly believes that no civilised Nation can remain a mute spectator to the gross rights violation of the people of Baluchistan and its inspiring leadership.

    Watt also added that such inhumane acts by the Pakistan Establishment was not in any way any interference in the internal affairs of a country because Nawab Akbar Bugti held important government positions in Baluchistan and could by no stretch of imagination be compared to a terrorist killed in an encounter.

    "We call upon the people of Baluchistan to wage a decisive battle against the Pakistan Establishment to free themselves from the clutches of inequality and oppression" urged Kashmir Telegraph Chief Editor

  • Dear Baluchis,

    Do not think that just because people in India are not devoting all media and government attention to the killing we are not with you. We are with you 100%. Baluchistan will one day be a free nation. And the people in India will help you in achieving the independence.

  • Dear Indians,
    Dont think we dont support the Sikh liberation movement either.

  • Dear Pakjabi,

    As long as you surrender all of Punjab to Sikhs with Lahore as their capital, we are fine by that idea.

  • Nawab Bugti's martyrdom is a sad incident. One may dis-agree with his political opinion and administrative choices for Balochistan, but this was not a treatment worthy of that personality, who had been actively involved in independence movement of Pakistan. (A photographic proof:

    For people burning in heat, I feel sad. But do remember, Punjab or Pakistan, is not represented by Musharaf and present government (in the same way as Balochistan government does not represent Balochistan). You have the right to demand independence. But I can only say that what we(people of Pakistan irrespective of their provinces or affiliations) want to achieve our rights (& be assured that it is an equivalent right for every citizen to enjoy his home and its bounties), & it can not be achieved with your suggested theme. Still you have the right to keep your opinion. However, rule of law, adherence to the wishes of common men and respect for traditions of every constituency of Pakistan is the only solution.

    This right is denied in all provinces. Military oppresion, bigot politicians with International forces of in-justice, declaring wars of self-interest every-where are the culprits. Peace and patience with consistent political struggle is the solution. Please join hands with people who are denied their rights. If you will take Musharaf/occupied regime as Punjab/Pakistan, you are going to commit a big mistake, which every one of us (you and me) would repent later.

    sincerely (with deep condolances),
    a Pakistani.
    He was brave and , yes a Pakistani. Please follow him and show your bravery and prudence for the right of whole Pakistan (which is synonym with Balochs).
    We have a proven history of being mis-used, please dont let it be repeated!
