Student in Balochistan Shot Dead by Military 'Goons'Tim King Salem-News.com
Faris Baloch was a student activist with the Baloch Republican Students Organization.
(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,
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.
