Baloch Diaspora congratulates the King of Balochistan


WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Friday, President of the Baloch Society of North America (BSO-NA) Dr. Wahid Baloch phoned and congratulated His Highness Mir Suleman Dawood Khan, King of Balochistan, for summoning the grand meeting of all Baloch tribal chieftains.

“The Baloch Diaspora in the United States and Canada extend their full support to Your Highness,” Dr. Baloch said.

“The convening of Grand Baloch Shahi Jirga (grand meeting) of Dar-ul-Umrah (the Upper House of Balochistan Parliament), is an historic event for the Baloch people all over the world,” he informed His Highness, and added that the Baloch Diaspora are rejoicing His Highnesses’ courage to assemble this meeting against all odds.

Dr. Baloch informed His Highness that BSO-NA endorses the Dar-ul-Umrah’s decisions, and along with the rest of the Baloch Diaspora he is delighted that Balochistan’s case would now finally be taken up at the International Court of Justice (I.C.J.) at The Hague. He regretted that some apologists and supporters of the military regime from Punjab were trying to belittle the importance of the historic event.

Dr. Baloch also spoke with the former Chief Minister of Balochistan, Sardar Akhtar Jan Mengal, who was visiting His Highness on Friday. Sardar Mengal stated that the Baloch leadership appreciates the extremely useful service Baloch expatriates in North America and Europe were rendering to the struggle of achieving the inalienable rights of the Baloch people.

On behalf of the BSO-NA, Dr. Baloch asks all friends of Balochistan and international organizations to take this opportunity to contact His Highness Mir Suleman Dawood Khan, King of Balochistan, and congratulate him for convening the Grand Jirga, and to assure him of their support. To contact His Highness, email Dr. Wahid Baloch to get His Highnesses’ phone number.

Dr. Baloch also advised the Baloch people to collect all the relevant information and documents that will help the legal case at the I.C.J. He recommended that extensive consultation and communications is imperative among the King of Balochistan, Nawab Khair Buksh Marri, Sardar Attaullah Mengal, Baloch tribal chieftains and elders, political leaders, Baloch Students Organization, Government of Balochistan (in Exile), Balochistan National Movement (BNM), Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP), Haq Tawar, Balochistan National Party (BNP), National Party (NP) and all other political entities and groups who believe in the Baloch right to self determination.

“We can now move forward to pursue our case at the I.C.J. in real earnest,” Dr. Baloch said.

Dr. Baloch also suggested floating the idea of establishing the “Balochistan International Legal Fund” in the United States to help finance the legal battles that lie ahead.

Dr. Wahid Baloch is the President of the Baloch Society of North America based in the U.S.
