Islam as nationality and identity

the-prohibition-of-nationalism-in-islamAuthor: Jamal Nasir Baloch

Europeans are in a great tragedy. After Paris they were struck in Brussels, which is regarded as the political capital of Europe. They are witnessing a new era of terrorism on their soil but they have, in my views, failed to address the real problem. In west many great minds believe that counter-insurgency, war or promoting moderate notion of Islam will address that threat. Unfortunately, they are wrong and could not defeat Islamic fascism until they do not accept the fact that West has itself legitimized that Frankenstein ideology. Among all Islamic organizations regardless of their means of struggle, the notion of Ummah or one Islamic nation is essential and that very principle defines their ultimate objective i.e. to establish an Islamic State or Caliphate. One of the core principles of the Political Islam is that all Muslim are part of a greater Ummah. Thus Muslim are one nation and people; they should be governed by a unified state under God’s Law.

Has Pakistan conquered Balochistan?

On 26 August 2015 BBC Urdu broke the news that self-proclaimed Nawab of Bugti tribe and President of Baloch Republican Party Brahumdagh Bugti has announced that he is ready to withdraw the demand of an independent Balochistan. In his latest interview he also emphasised that he always wanted to negotiate with Pakistani establishment but they (establishment) were never serious to talk on Balochistan’s issue. Mr Bugti is the grandson of Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti who was murdered by Pakistan military on 26 August 2006. After Nawab Akbar Bugti’s murder Brahumdagh took refuge in Afghanistan for several years and then moved to Switzerland in 2010 where he applied for political asylum. Brahumdagh Bugti’s approval of Pakistani colonization was welcomed by the Pakistani main stream media and the government also excitedly announced to form a committee to have negotiations with Mr Bugti.

Grand Strategy for the stability and economic development in the Middle East and Af-Pak region

The colonial geopolitical design of Middle East cannot deliver stability, democracy and prosperity due to its flawed structure. The western states, in particular the U.S.A and western European government, have been using their tax payers’ money in their fight against terrorism now for decades.

Transition to democracy has profoundly transformed many regions of the world in the second half of the last century. These regions include Europe, Latin American, Far East and Central Asian. Restoration of democracy and independence among many nations after the breakup of Soviet Union has played a vital role in renewal of commerce and economic progress in eastern European region. However, the authoritarian states in Middle East, especially the fanatical states of Iran and Pakistan are the main barriers to democracy and rule of law. They are the chief source of religious fundamentalism and cause of instability in Afghanistan.

Jeffrey Goldberg’s Map

The political system of these two states is founded and functions on exploitation, religious fanaticism and blatant colonialism. Iran and Pakistan are not nations. They are artificial borders, comprised of many different nations. Iran is dominated by Persians and Pakistan is dominated by the Punjabis. The other nations are the colonies of these two nations.

Comments on Dr.Frederic Grare research on Balochistan.

Grare report on Balochistan

“The nationalist parties should participate in provincial elections in May. Only their participation in Balochistan’s administration can confer sufficient legitimacy on the provincial government. A legitimate and credible Baloch government can re-establish local control over the province, help reduce violence, and advocate for Balochistan on the federal level” Dr Frederic Grare, 2013

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s Director and Senior Associate  South Asia Program, Dr. Frederic Grare, has suggested Baloch nation to participate in elections. Read the rest of this entry

Evolving geopolitics and its effects on occupied Balochistan

IP Gas pipeline and Balochistan’s territory

Baloch nation was facing a slow motion genocide by Iranian and Pakistani forces since the first day of occupation of Baloch land but now it faces a new foreign enemy China, who will be directly involved in Baloch genocide in the near future.

The effects of Chinese takeover of Gwadar Port can already easily be seen in occupied Balochistan as the kill and dump policy has intensified and has been extended to Karachi.

Within the span of just few weeks, dead bodies of more than 8 Baloch missing persons, most of them students, have been dumped in Karachi area. Just two days ago, two missing persons Babo Iftekhar Baloch and Maqbool Ahmad Baloch were dumped by Pakistani forces in the Mangopeer area of Karachi.

From the day Pakistani authorities planned to transfer Gwadar port and started negotiation on Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project the state terrorism dramatically increased, which resulted in four fresh military operations in Mashkey, Mangochar, Mastung and Panjgur area of Balochistan. Military operationwere followed by bomb blasts in Quetta, which were conducted by Pakistan’s proxy Lashkar-e-Jangvi. (more…)

The need to institutionalise the Baloch Liberation Struggle

dpic1The Baloch liberation movement is continuing since 1948 after Pakistani forces occupied Balochistan forcefully. This essay will highlight the importance of the institutionalisation of movement for sustainable resistance. The first part of essay will highlight the concentration of Irish leadership on institutionalisation and refusal of British state as whole. In the second part the essay will look into the concept of institutionalisation according to social scientists and the third part concludes how institutions can began in the Baloch national struggle.

“They can even conscript us!, they can use us as cannon fodder in the Somme but we have a weapon more powerful than any in the whole arsenal of the British Empire, that weapon is our refusal, Our refusal to bow to any order but our own, Any institution but our own” Michael Collins (more…)

Successful freedom movement and its core prerequisite

  • Author: Jamal Nasir Baloch

NationsFor every illegally occupied nation there comes a time that they need a clear democratic plan in order to regain their independence. Occupied nations always aspired toward freedom which will restore their natural rights. Those nations who happened to have political leaders with clear vision about the future prospect of the nation have succeeded to change the fate of their nation into modern democratic state.
Occupied nations who failed to act as a nation have never been accepted as owner of their own homeland by the international community.

The Baloch who have been struggling since mid19th century for their freedom now reached at a point where they have two options which will decided their future as an independent nation in the region. First is the one which was chosen by Balochistan’s former ruler, Khan of Kalat Mir Ahmadyar Khan, who was able to sustain Baloch freedom for only 227 days. The tragedy of Kalat State was that almost the entire government of Balochistan consisted of outsiders. He even imported a prime minister from India. The second option is the one that we do not have to repeat the mistake again. Before we regain our independence we must produce clear roadmap of what sort of state and institutions we are going to have during the transitional process and thereafter. Without a clear plan and objective we may experience the same problem that our political leaders had experienced in the past.
