Dr. Allah Nazar, the pro-independence Baloch leader, congratulated the leaders of the Baloch Student Organization (BSO) on the 52nd anniversary of its formation. He said, “I feel proud that I started my political journey from the platform of BSO. Ideologically, BSO has trained thousands of Baloch for the national struggle. BSO is one of the most important and key pillars of the Baloch nation.”
Dr. Allah Nazar termed BSO as an institution of the Baloch nation and added, “BSO is a national institution and its services will always be remembered in the history of the Baloch nation.”
The Baloch leader maintained, “BSO has played a vital role in guiding the Baloch national struggle into the right path and direction. With the support of the nation and the consistent struggle and sacrifices of Baloch students, BSO has been guiding the Baloch nation for more than a half-century. There is no doubt that BSO has been at the forefront in educating Baloch students and awakening national consciousness. Moreover, through this national institution, the students have played a pivotal role in the Baloch national struggle.”
He said, “Pakistan and all those powers in Balochistan that support the colonial rule of Pakistan consider BSO a permanent threat. These elements prioritize their personal gains over Baloch national destiny. There is no shortage of such elements, even today. That is the reason the history of BSO is stuffed with many ups and downs. Hence, the credit goes to those devoted youth who maintained the structure of the organization, despite internal strife as well as the state brutalities and being proscribed by the state. Apart from the unending list of brutalities in the past, many leaders of BSO were martyred in the present times. Several leaders of BSO are the victim of enforced disappearance and are missing for ages. Even BSO Chairman Zahid Baloch and Vice-Chairman Zakir Majeed are among the missing persons. The caravan of BSO has kept moving forward despite the martyrdom and abduction of senior leaders, which is a clear sign of greatness and commitment.”
Dr. Allah Nazar further said, “Qamber Chakar, Ilyas Nazar, Shafi Baloch, Comrade Qayyum Baloch, and several other prominent leaders were tortured and martyred in detention. There is hardly being an example of such cruelty on student organizations in any part of the world where its leaders were brutally killed in such an extent and fashion. Meting out such a level of brutality against the Baloch students manifests the deep-rooted hatred of Pakistan against the Baloch nation. Surely this exhibits our national slavery,”
“Pakistan will never allow the Baloch students to get a proper education while developing a sense of national consciousness. This is the main reason that abduction, martyrdom, and torture have become a daily routine. Similarly, the recent “hidden camera scandal” at the University of Balochistan is the sequence of the same policy. The Baloch students did not give up their education even after turning the University of Balochistan into a military camp. Consequently, a new policy of blackmailing was adopted to destroy the educational environment of the university.” added the prominent leader of the Baloch nation.
He said, “I am proud that I have been a part of this organization. I was associated with the BSO since my school days. The formation of BSO-Azad and reviving of the true spirit of BSO and the journey towards its real destination are the important phases of my life. In 2002, I along with some of my friends laid the foundation of BSO-Azad and freed it from the clenches of parliamentary politics and reoriented it on the path and philosophy of Shaheed Fida Ahmed Baloch who had dubbed that parliament is an illusion and a bane for the Baloch nation. Furthermore, it practically restored the clause of BSO’s original constitution which clearly demands freedom of Balochistan. Since that day BSO has been playing its crucial role for which it was formed 52 years ago.”
Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch concluded, “BSO has proved that the organization and institutionalization of the national movement play the most important role in defining the fate of the nations. From Shaheed Fida Baloch to Shaheed Aslam Baloch, Shaheed Dr. Saleem up to Shaheed Hasil Baloch, BSO has made huge sacrifices. These sacrifices expose the brutalities of Pakistan and make it clear to the world that the Baloch nation will never retreat and abandon their struggle for national freedom at any cost.”
