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.

They are the chief source of religious fundamentalism and cause of instability in Afghanistan.

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
