BNM pays homage to the martyrs of Dera Bugti
The central spokesperson for the Baloch National Movement (BNM) said that the killing of more than 70 people in Dera Bugti on March 17, 2005 is an unforgettable day in the history of the Baloch nation. On this day, Pakistan mercilessly bombed Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti’s Guesthouse and killed more than 70 Baloch. Most of them were Hindu Baloch who had been living in Baloch homeland for centuries. All religious minorities, including Hindus, face state repression and religious restrictions in Pakistan, whereas in Balochistan they perform all their rituals in a free environment. Although, some pawns of the occupying state in Balochistan have tried to pollute the atmosphere, but the collective mood and traditions of the Baloch nation rejected these occupying policies to succeed.
The spokesman said that the killing of more than 70 people in a single day by Pakistan and the ongoing Baloch genocide mirrors the bewilderment of the state which is losing the battle against Baloch national struggle and unending sacrifices of Baloch nation.
He stressed, “we urged upon to our friends of national struggle to show more flexibility that would be the very reason of success towards achieving our desired mission of national liberation.”
The BNM spokesperson said that the blood of martyrs has created a gulf between the Baloch and the enemy state. This blood has further clarified the relationship between the oppressor and the oppressed and has given us the message that without salvation and independence from Pakistan, our blood will continue to flow and our identity as a nation will remain in danger of extinction.
The spokesperson said that the Baloch National Movement pays homage to the martyrs of Dera Bugti and reiterates its commitment that the mission of the martyrs will continue till the sun of freedom rises on the Baloch land and we will not refrain from giving any sacrifice for the sake of national cause.
