2013 Pakistan Elections and Balochistan: An Overview

thumbnail imageIn a nutshell, it seems unlikely that the elections will be conducted fairly in Balochistan due to the army’s presence and the outcome could be no less than that of the 2008 elections, but a responsibility lies on the Baloch stakeholders to find a feasible solution to lessen the agony of the people. While taking part in elections will not guarantee any solution to the issues all at once, it can give a fair share of hope to the Baloch political parties and allow them to gain some breathing space for reorganizing themselves. Boycotting the elections risks paving the path for the army to install a dummy government like that of Aslam Raisani’s and creating more opportunity for the likes of Shafeeq Mengal and Siraj Raisani to continue expanding their reign of terror across Balochistan.

Repression is Unlikely to Make Baloch Proud Pakistani Citizens: Dr. Frederic Grare

The Struggle for Independence and the Shortcomings of the Baloch Leadership

thumbnail imageInstead of focusing attention on the Frontier Corp or the government of Pakistan and its intelligence agencies for the ongoing mass killings in Balochistan, the ostracized, suppressed and deprived Baloch need to start asking hard questions of their leaders—chieftains and elites alike—about their actions or non-actions that allow this carnage to continue.

Pakistan Elections Have So Far Failed Human Rights in Balochistan

thumbnail imageBaloch Human Rights Council (Canada) while condemning the recent state-backed attack on the offices of a Balochistan-based newspaper, Daily Tawar, described the precarious situation in Balochistan as a ‘killing field’ of human rights. The process of electing a parliament in any democratic society is a freedom of expression and rights exercised by the civil society – the state policy of silencing the Baloch media at this critical instant is an open statement of war on freedom of expression and the rights of a people.
