Baloch leader asks Vice President Joe Biden to intervene

WASHINGTON, DC: (June 25, 2010) On the eve of United Nation’s International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the president of Baloch Society of North America (BSO-NA), Dr. Wahid Baloch, met with Vice-President Joe Biden to draw his attention to the gross human right violations, ongoing military operation and enforced involuntary disappearances in Pakistani and Iranian occupied Baluchistan.

“Secular Baloch are being hanged everyday by Iranian Mullah and killed and kidnapped by Pakistani Jihadi Islamic terrorist army and it’s ISI and no one is doing anything about it,” he told the Vice President.

“We Balochs, like Kurds of Iraq, are Pro-American and we support NATO forces in Afghanistan against the Taliban and Al-Qaida terrorists. Why we are not being helped by the State Department,” he asked the Vice president.

Balochistan, rich in oil, gas, gold, copper and other minerals, with 900 miles of strategically located coast line, extending from the Strait of Hormuz to Karachi, was a sovereign independence state, occupied illegally by Pakistan’s army at gun point on March 27th, 1948. Since then the secular Baloch are fighting Pakistani army and Iranian Terrorist revolutionary guards to restore their freedom and sovereignty over their homeland, coasts and natural resources. Thousands Baloch have been killed by Pakistani troops and Iranian terrorist revolutionary guards in this conflict and several thousands are lingering in Pakistani Jails and military torture cells. More than 8000 Baloch youth are “missing” since 2005, including Zakir Majeed, EhsanArjumandi,

Dr. Deen Mohd, Dr. Naseem Baloch, Mehboob Wadela, Jalil Reki, a names of few.

According to a UN report more than 80,000 Balochs including women and children have been evicted from their homes due to Pakistani bombardment since 2005 and are living in extreme harsh conditions without any food, water, shelter or medicine. All these acts constitute ‘crimes against humanity’ and asks for international action and intervention.

The United States Government and international community must not close their eyes over these crimes against the secular Baloch people and should hold the Pakistan army, its ISI and the Iranian terrorist revolutionary Guards accountable for these crimes against the people of Balochistan.

” We, the Baloch people of Balochistan are secular and natural ally of U.S in the war on terror and we share many American values. We ask Obama administration to not support Pakistan, a terrorist State, but extend a helping hand to the Baloch people in Balochistan who are their true natural ally against Islamic Extremism and terrorism and who are suffering in the hands of these two Islamic terrorist States, Pakistan and Iran”, he told the Vice President.

Update:

Later on he presented a letter to Vice-president. The text of the letter is as follows;

Date: June 25, 2010

To,

The Honorable Vice President Joseph R Biden

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20501

Dear Mr. Vice-President

I am a U.S. Citizen, originally from Balochistan, and am the founder and president of Baloch Society of North America, an organization dedicated to highlight the plights of Baloch people in Pakistani and Iranian occupied Balochistan. It is a great pleasure to be here in your presence.

On the behalf of Baloch Society of North America (BSO-NA), I would like to draw your attention to the gross human right violations in Pakistani and Iranian occupied Balochistan, where Pakistani and Iranian Islamic terrorist armies are engaged in State terrorism and genocide against the innocent Baloch people, where arrests, kidnapping, disappearances by Pakistani Police, military Intelligence and ISI and Iranian revolutionary terrorist guards are a daily routine.

Balochistan, rich in oil, gas, gold, copper and other minerals, with 900 miles of strategically located coast line, extending from the Strait of Hormuz to Karachi, was a sovereign independence state, occupied illegally by Pakistani army at gun point in March 1948. Since then the secular Baloch people are fighting Pakistani army to restore their freedom and sovereignty over their homeland, coasts and natural resources. Thousands Baloch have been killed by Pakistani troops in this conflict and several hundreds are lingering in Pakistani Jails and military torture cells. More than 8000 Baloch youth are “missing” since 2005, including Zakir Majeed, Ahsan arjumandi, Dr. Deen Mohd, Dr. Naseem Baloch, Mehboob Wadela, Jalil Reki, a names of few.

According to a UN report more than 80,000 Balochs including women and children have been evicted from their home due to Pakistani bombardment, since 2005 and are living in extreme harsh conditions without any food, water, shelter or medicine.

In Iranian occupied Balochistan, the situation is not much different, where Islamic Revolutionary terrorist Guards have hanged several hundreds of Baloch in public for flimsy charges such as “Enemies of Allah”, and “agents of Zionist and Kuffars (USA). Each time they hang one Baloch in public, they shout slogan like,” Merg ber Amrika (Death to America), Merg ber Israel (Death to Israel) and Allah-o-Akbar (God is great).

The premier Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Asian Human Right Commission and Amnesty International have deplored Pakistan’s atrocities on the people of Balochistan, who have been subjected to Gunship helicopter attacks and even use of poison Phosphorus gas. The confirmed and published reports about Balochistan should give you a clear picture about the prevailing terrifying human rights situation in Balochistan.

The United States Government and international community must not close their eyes over these crimes against the secular Baloch people and should hold the Pakistani Government, its army and ISI and the Iranian terrorist revolutionary Guards accountable for the crimes against humanity, against the people of Balochistan.

We urge the United States Government to immediately intervene and initiate dialogue with our De Jure ruler of Balochistan Khan Kalat Mir Suleman Daud Khan, who is seeking asylum in the UK, to help end the Pakistani and Iranian illegal, unjust and immoral occupation of Balochistan.

We, the Baloch people, like Kurds of Iraq, are secular and natural ally of U.S in the war on terror. We support and defend the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan against Taliban and Al-Qaida terrorists who are hiding in sanctuaries provided to them by the Pakistan army and the ISI. A Balochistan ruled by secular forces is in the interest of the peoples of the world, including the United States.

We urge Obama administration to not support Pakistan, a terrorist State, but extend a helping hand to the Baloch people in Balochistan, their true and natural ally in the war on terror and against Islamic extremism ans Terrorism.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Dr. Wahid Baloch, President

Baloch Society of North America
