Student in Balochistan Shot Dead by Military 'Goons'

Faris Baloch was a student activist with the Baloch Republican Students Organization.

Faris Baloch S/O Rafique Baloch- shot dead by military.
Faris Baloch S/O Rafique Baloch- shot dead by military.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - A systematic genocide of the Baloch Nation is escalating with every passing moment, yet most Americans have never heard of the place. They should understand though because they're paying for it.

How much money does the US give to Pakistan every year? U.S. taxpayers provide roughly $2 billion a year to the government of Pakistan and in part, this is what they do with it. You are looking at it, the dead boy to the right.

Welcome to Pakistan's 'Dirty Wary' that they don't want the west to think about or know about. It is because of the constant systematic slaughter of people who speak out against the government.

People in the west convince themselves that bravery is defined on the battlefield. Well, in Balochistan, every day is a battlefield only there are no winners.

Annexed by Pakistan due to its rich, abundant resources, the nation of Balochistan was 'annexed' and the people didn't just lose their country and history, they lost their right to protest state terrorism.

Those who speak out are only greeted by torture and death. Even politicians who are critical of the state are in danger.

Therefore it is not surprising that brave student activists are at the top of the killing list in this place.

Today another Baloch youth namely Faris Baloch S/O Rafique Baloch has been shot dead by the military goons in Gayaab area of Mand.

According to details sent to our newsroom, Faris Baloch was an active member of Baloch Republican Students Organization.

To eliminate Baloch youth, Pakistani military uses well trained squads of sharp shooters. These deadly criminals are given shelters under different names and funded by both public exchequer and the drug smugglers.

Military death squad activity in the Mand area is headed by a notorious drug tycoon Imam Bheel. One of his sons is the member of Pakistani Parliament too.

The Baloch Republican Students Organization have announced rallies and called for the nationwide strike tomorrow.

Talking about the incident BRSO spokesman said,

    ... if international community does not take the serious notice of Baloch Genocide, and serious steps are not taken to stop it, terrorist state will not spare anyone.

Tell people about Balochistan, look it up on a map and visit the various resistance group's Websites and orient yourself about this subject so that you can speak intelligently about it.

They need our voices and our help, please.

Tim, once again your inability to hold two separate thoughts at the same time is the sign of a very very simple mind. You are locked into a singular vision that will indeed keep you from seeing the entire picture.... this is always dangerous for those in decision-making/problem-solving positions, so lucky for those around you in terms of your real worth and significance. Hurry...I think I heard your mom call down to you in the basement. She’s got your grilled cheese and tomato soup ready.

Tim King: Yes, simple mind, I only care about human beings and trying to help them stay alive, you can consider that what you will, and my mom is dead, so can you at any point lay off that?

I must say this is an example of biased newsreporting , id advise the readers to look into the situation of balochistan considering the role of international players in the region and the links between BLA and BSO . Theres a difference between activism and terrorism . I completely condemn the killing of this youth but the solution to this problem is to initiate talks and not support either of the participants.

Tim King: Yeah, biased on the side of humanity, take your dog and pony show somewhere else, we are a human rights-oriented news group and you will not be convincing our staff or readers to not support Baloch resistance, I noted how you spelled the name of  Balochistan in lower case,  that is ridiculous, how are things at the government office in Karachi today anyway?  It is dreary to think of not seeing things clearly, you attempt to add confusion, didn't work.


Doctor K December 11, 2012 10:51 pm (Pacific time)

Id recommend the readers to completely analyze the issue of balochistan , theres a difference between activism and terrorism . This is a one sided story , read abd BLA and BSO links and the role of international powers . I condemn the killing of this youth but the solution is to initiate talks and not to support any single participant .

Tim King: Oh I see, you want them to take the abuse and be nice about it...?  Gee, you killed my dad but I'll be nice... absolute bullshit.  Bullshit!  Where are you located doctor with a letter for a name?  My credentials are listed, I have done major research into the Baloch nation and there is not an ounce of fairness and I do NOT blame them for fighting back against the terrorist state of  Pakistan.  I appreciate that you are throwing out your disclaimer and making reference to this death being sad, but isn't that a no-brainer?   I have news for you; oppressed and abused people don't need to follow the rules that their 'government' calls for, they are brave and would rather live as martyrs than slaves, and that places Pakistan in a tight position.  I am happy  to list links to articles we have published that can all be fact checked that are a horror story,  Baloch people do resist and will resist and all of your explanations mean nothing to them, just like the Palestinians, and the Tamils, and the Rohingyas, just follow international law, that is what is NOT taking place.  But we're talking about Pakistan, the land of Blasphemy laws designed to trip up the Christian population, I only have faith in resistance, not excuses.

The price of ignoring this behavior is the sacrifice of our own moral structure, I wish this young man had not died but I admire him to no end.
