BLA and BRA terrorist have waged a dirty war against the people of Mekran
By Saleem Baloch
It is now completely clear and fully understood that this so called "War of Independence" (War of Buisness) that is being fought and waged by BLA and BRA terrorists, KB and sons Inc, and the greedy, corrupt, opportunistic Nawabs and Sardars, is a war of elimination, aimed to kill and eliminate the educated Baloch youths of Mekran.
You can tell that there are no shots being fired in Dera Bugti or Kholu. Both BLA and BRA's terrorist heads, Mr. Hyrbiyar Marri and Brhamdagh Bugti, helped their brothers and cousins to be elected in the Balohistan assembly, but they have turend their guns against the ordinary people of Mekran.

Every day they kidnap two or three innocent Baloch people of Mekran, call them agents of FC or ISI and then being Judge, Jury and executioner by themselves, they kill them after a kangroo trail in the name of "Balochi court", and dump their bodies on the road side. They have turned Mekran a place of hell for the ordinary Baloch people, making them feel insecure, terrorized and live with fear.
"All those who are funding and supporting the BLA and BRA terrorist outfits, must stop funding them as they are not fighting for Balochistan but have turned their guns against their own Baloch people", said Ali Baloch, a resident of Mekran.
The BIG Question is why they are active in Mekran. Both of them, Mr. Hyrbiyar Marri and Brhamdagh Bugti, are not from Mekran. Then, Why they are flexing their muscles in Mekran, killing and terrorizing the ordinary Baloch? Why don't they take their war to back to their own home towns of Dera Bugti and Kohlu??
We all know BLA terrorist head Mr. Hyrbiar Marri recorded the worst corruption in the history of Balochistan, by selling local jobs to Punjabi settlers, Afghans and Hazaras, ignoring the local Balochs, when he was the Education Minister in Balochistan Government. Thanks to the then CM Sardar Akhtar Jan Mengal for giving him that Job, which he didn't deserve it.
And as for as for Mr. Brhamdagh Bugti goes, where was he in this whole time ??? Busy eating Balochi Sajji and making people to walk on burning coals bare foot to have fun in order to prove their innocence ??
For more than 50 years, he and his grandfather, Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, were collecting billions rupees in Sui Gas Royalty from Pakistan and they didn't say a single word about the Baloch sufferings and Baloch freedom, but when Gen Musharrf refused to accept Bugti's demand to increase the gas royalty, all of sudden he and his grandson Mr. Brhamdagh Bugti sahib became the "Baloch Freedom Fighters", and every one else became a traitor in his eyes, a "spy" and an "agent" to be killed by his paid agent on his orders??
And can some one ask where did they spend all that Gas Royalty monies?? Did they build any Road, School, College or any hospital in Dera Bugti or anywhere in Balochistan??
Instead, all the money was used to build, Bugti Private Militia "The Bugti Force", and the "Bugti Fortress", and ran private Jails to torture the rival Kalper Bugti Baloch and terrorize their women and children.
Here are some more historical FACTS that no one can deny;
Let's not forget that it was the same Bugti, who was the first to Welcome Mr. Jinnah in Balochistan and merged the Bugti areas of Balochistan to Pakistan.

Yes, this was the same Bugti, who shouted in front of Mouchi gate in Lahore telling the Punjabis that NAP Government want to break up Pakistan by separating Balochistan and Pakhtun areas from Pakistan and told them about the arms in Iraqi Embassy for Baloch freedom fighters for this purpose, paving the way for the dissolution of NAP Government of Sardar Attaullah Mengal, Ghous Bux Bizenjo, Wali Khan and Gul Khan Naseer, getting all of them arrested and put in Hyderabad jail and imposition of Governor rule in Balochistan, for which he was rewarded the Governorship of Balochistan by the Baloch killer, Mr. Z.A Bhutto.
And yes, it was the same Bugti, who was the partner of Baloch killing, as Governor of Balochistan, with the Baloch killer Z.A Bhutto in 70', who killed thousands Balochs, using the help of Iranian gunship helicopters.

Again, it was the same Bugti, who decided to leave Akhtar Jan Mengal's coalition Government, letting him to go collapse, for just only one of his stubborn demand that why he didn't take any action against the Kalper Bugti Balochs to avenge his son's killing.
Let's, also, do not forget that it was the same Bugti and his grandson Mr. Brhamdagh Bugti, who expelled their own Bugti Kalper Balochs, in thousands, including women and children, from their own ancestral homes in Dera Bugti, just to take the revenge of his son's killing.
Where was Mr. Brhamdagh Bugti sahib this all time?? He was not a freedom fighter to begin with and nor he is one now. His all family, including his cousin Mir Aali Bugti, Shazain Bugti and other close family members are with Pak military collecting subsides. Why he doesn't go after them?, but he is good to kill the ordinary Balochs of Mekran calling them "agents" and "spy"??? Who have given him this right to issue certificates and decree to kill the innocent Baloch citizens??
Why should the poor Baloch people, and especially the ordinary Baloch youths of Mekran, fight his "war of revenge" for him? If Mr. Brhamdagh Bugti wants to take revenge and go after Musharrf for killing his grandfather, he is free to do so, but why is he using the ordinary Baloch youths in the name of freedom to get them killed?
We ask all the people of Mekran to shun BLA and BRA and their so called "war of Nawabs and Sardars", imposed upon them by these terrorists to get the educated Baloch youths of Mekran killed. This is NOT a war of independnce but a "war of elimination" to eliminate the Baloch intelligentsia of Balochistan in general and of Mekran in particular.
If these Nawabs and Sardars and their sons were sincere with Balochistan and Balochland, they would not hide in London, Dubai and Europe to market the Baloch blood for personal gain. Instead, they would return to Balochistan and fought their own "war of business".
We ask the people of Balochistan and especially the people of Mekran to kick BLA and BRA terrorists and their recruiters/agents out of Mekran before they turn Mekran into a civil war theatre.
Relations between the Baloch separatists and the State of Iraq had historical roots and were strong before the United Statesinvasion of Iraq. Following the 1971 war and the partition of East Pakistan, Iraq collaborated with the Soviet Union to launch a covert operation to provide military aid to the Balochi nationalists in Pakistan and Iran. The aim of this exercise was to destabilize the two countries by helping dissident Baloch parties in their struggles to seek independence from the Pakistani and Iranian States. The operation remained successful during the early 1970s, but ultimately failed when there was a dispute amongst the Nationalist leaders involved in this operation. The dispute took place when Balochi leaders Ghaus Bakhsh Bizenjo and Ataullah Mengal of National Awami Party refused to accept the demands of Akbar Bugti to establish himself as the Governor of theProvince of Balochistan.
On the midnight of 9 February 1973, Akbar Khan Bugti had revealed to Pakistaniauthorities about weapons shipment smuggled from Soviet Union by help of Iraq which kept in the Iraqi embassy in Islamabad. In 10 February 1973, the Pakistani authorities began to prepared to launch a quick military operation. After limited hours of planning, a special military operation was led by Special Service Group accompanied by the Pakistan Army Rangers to storm the Iraqi embassy. Following this incident, authorities discovered 300Sovietsubmachine guns with 50,000 rounds of ammunitions and large amount of money that was to be distributed amongst Baluchi separatist groups.
Following this incident, the nationalist leader Sher Mohammad Marri visited Baghdad. Newspapers reported that the arms were intended to be given to Balochi separatists in both Pakistan and Iran to fuel tensions among the two states and the dissident tribes. A few months later, it was also reported that in reality, the arms were not found in the Iraqi Embassy but in the Iraqi consulate in Karachi. Some authorities predicted that the discovery of these weapons would muster greater support for the government from other ethnic groups in the country. A military operation was also launched in Baluchistan shortly after this incident. This counter-insurgency operation finally ended in 1977 after the end of insurgency and rebellion in Baluchistan. Despite this setback, Iraq continued to support underground activities to empower Balochi nationalists and destabilize Pakistan .
In the 1950s, Iraq provided support for the Baloch against Tehran. Rebel leader Dad Shah was very famous in Iraq’s media. He was killed in 1957 but Iraqi support continued. TheMohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran was unable to stop the civil war in Iranian Balochistan immediately after the death of Dad Shah. Iranian forces successfully put down the rebellion at the start of 1960s. Many Baloch went underground and reorganized. In 1968, with the help of Iraq and other Arab nationalist leaders, the Baluch once again revolted. The revolt ended in 1975 when the Shah persuaded one of the main Baluch nationalists and tribal chiefs to negotiate. In 1970s, ties with Iraq became stronger by supporting Baluch separatist groups on both sides of border. From 1973 to 1977 Iraq aided the Baloch revolt in Pakistan, the Balochistan conflict. In February 1973, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto dismissed the Balochistan provincial government and arrested three main Baloch nationalist leaders because of arms discovered in Iraqi embassy. Pakistan's government also announced an Iraqi/Soviet plan to break up Pakistan and Iran. With the help of the Shah, Pakistan crushed the insurgence in Balochistan in 1977 and exiled Baloch nationalist leaders who had been in prison since 1973; some migrated to Afghanistan, Gulf states and the United Kingdom. In the 1980 Iran–Iraq War, Iraq once again supported the Baluch to keep Iranian forces busy on their eastern front aiding Iraq on the western front. In June 1991, Saddam Hussein removed one of his most honourable commanders General Wafiq Samarrai because of his ties with Tehran. In 1994, General Samarrai revealed that Iraqi Intelligence Service relations were very well established on both sides of the border. During the Iran–Iraq War, Iraqi intelligence had an office in Dubai run by Baloch.
During the second year of Z.A. Bhutto’s government, one fine morning the news media flashed a report titled London Plan. Since then the term has become synonymous for intrigues and sedition. Was it a fact or a drama that was staged to malign the Pakhtoon leader Wali Khan and his National Awami Party (NAP), or an attempt to extend PPP rule to the province where the NAP had a coalition government with Mufti Mahmood’s Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI).
The government claimed that the discovery of an arms cache from Iraqi Embassy in Islamabad was a part of the conspiracy to break Pakistan and create a greater Balochistan by annexing Iranian Balochistan with Pakistani Balochistan. The arms were reportedly meant for the separatists of Pakistani Balochistan. Later it was added that the NAP was working for independent Pakhtoonistan.
It started in September 1972 when Maulana Kausar Niazi, the information minister and a close confidant of Bhutto claimed that the NAP chief Wali Khan and his colleagues had hatched a conspiracy to break Pakistan into semi-independent units. He alleged that this occurred when Wali Khan visited London for eye treatment. It was claimed that the Chief Minister of Balochistan Attaullah Mengal, and Balochistan Finance Minister Ahmad Nawaz Bugti met Bangladesh Prime Minister Shaikh Mujibur Rahman in London and discussed the plan.
This was corroborated by a speech by the Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti, at Mochi Gate, Lahore, on January 31, 1973, claiming that Wali Khan and Attaullah Mengal had told him about the ‘Greater Independent Balochistan’ plan through which Balochistan would gain independence. He also claimed that the assistance for implementing the plan was coming from Greater Balochistan Centre in Baghdad.
The reports about the London Plan appeared in news media in Pakistan as well as in the UK which created a stir among the general public as they were just coping with the shock of separation of Bangladesh. Bhutto asked for an explanation from Bizenjo to which he reaffirmed loyalty with Pakistan but could not satisfy Bhutto. Subsequently, the Balochistan government was dissolved on February 14, 1973, while the KP government resigned in protest the next day. Wali Khan, Attaullah Mengal, Ghaus Bakhsh Bizenjo, Khair Bakhsh Mari, Mir Gul Khan Nasir, Habib Jalib — in all 52 activists were arrested.
The situation became very intriguing as NAP leaders rejected the government claim and said that the ploy was hatched by the then Interior Minister Abdul Qayyum Khan. When the story broke out in a London newspaper, Shaikh Mujibur Rahman on his own told The Times that the news was baseless and that it was engineered by the central government which wanted to create an excuse to dissolve the NAP-led KP government.
On the face of it the whole episode appeared to be a well-planned fiasco. It appeared true that the arms cache was meant for the Baloch activists but who would have distributed it? This could not be established. An open debate in the National Assembly was not allowed on the ground that it was a sensitive issue and involved a foreign Muslim country; this closed all possible explanations that could have surfaced.
One proposed argument sounds plausible: the Bhutto factor. The experience of the past 10 months proved that Bhutto did not like two border provincial governments in partnership of the NAP. Despite the Tripartite Accord with the NAP and JUI the centre did not fulfill many conditions that were agreed upon on March 6, 1972. Both the provincial leaders had been complaining about it but nothing was being solved. The interference in provincial matters was irritating both the governments. All that the NAP wanted was greater provincial autonomy and less interference in the working of the provincial governments.
In the light of these developments, what was the truth about the London Plan? As the scheme of things unravelled, the plan seemed a well-conceived mechanism to slander the NAP leadership and its partner JUI. This was achieved. With the Presidential rule clamped, the ruling party had been able to break the party structure.
Later, a Hyderabad Tribunal was set up to investigate the allegations and prosecute those found involved in seditious activities. Since prosecution did not have ample evidence the proceedings remained almost dormant. Soon Bhutto got entangled in such a political mess that it led him first to become a hostage at the hands of Pakistan National Alliance (PNA) and later his hand-picked army chief Gen. Ziaul Haq who overthrew his government and sent him to the gallows. The Hyderabad Tribunal was wound up and all detainees were released, but only after rotting in jail till 1979.
