    Newspapers not delivered in Balochistan amid threats

    QUETTA: Newspapers were not distributed in the city and other parts of the province on Tuesday as hawkers and agents refrained from delivering them due to threats hurled by banned militant organisations.

    The organisations are demanding the media publish statements about their activities and have threatened to stop distribution of newspapers in any area of the province.

    Furthermore, a leader of the Anjuman-i-Akhbar Froshan, Yousaf Baloch, has asked newspaper owners not to send copies of their dailies from Wednesday onwards to the market as hawkers will not deliver them to their clients in view of the looming threats.

    Though newspapers were published in Quetta and were even sent to the market on Tuesday, majority of hawkers and agents did not deliver the editions in the city.

    However, a few hawkers dared to deliver them in some areas.

    Besides, transporters also refused to take newspaper bundles to other towns and cities in central, southern and western parts of Balochistan.

    The Anjuman-i-Akhbar Froshan leader has also asked the media houses of other provinces to stop sending newspapers, while agents have also requested media owners of other provinces not to send newspapers.

    Meanwhile, the Deputy Inspector General of Quetta has asked the media houses’ owners and editors to publish their editions which he assured would be delivered amid tight security.

    However, media houses are in a fix whether to publish their editions.

    Will destroy UK, Switzerland over emergence of ‘Free Balochistan’ posters: Pakistan defence expert

    Published November 6, 2017 | By admin SOURCE: WION

    A Pakistan defence expert has suggested that the country should consider creating gangs of terrorists and separatists to dismember the United Kingdom and Switzerland for allowing the flagging of ‘ Free Balochistan ‘ posters.

    “In retaliation, Should Pakistan also create terrorist/separatist gangs in Pakistan who should work to destroy/dismember UK & Switzerland? (sic),” Zaid Hamid, a Pakistani political commentator and defence expert, said in a tweet.

    He alleged that the UK was hosting the biggest terror network against Pakistan.

    “UK is hosting the biggest terror network operating against Pakistan. Altaf Hussain is a British citizen & mass murderer under UK protection,” Hamid tweeted.

    Hamid’s reaction came after London taxis with the words ‘ Free Balochistan ‘ written on both sides were seen plying outside Buckingham Palace in what can be called as a new push by overseas Baloch groups to attract global attention to their cause for independence from Pakistan.

    ‘Free Balochistan’ posters embossed on several vehicles running on the road were seen in London this week to highlight human rights violations in Balochistan province.

    Pakistan on Friday summoned British High Commissioner Thomas Drew over the emergence of ‘Free Balochistan’ posters, which it said directly attacked its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

    A Baloch activist said that Pakistan’s reaction over the posters is a testimony to its suppressive nature, and its aggression to try to curb their rights in the UK.

    “Pakistan’s reaction is a testimony to its suppressive nature, aggressively trying to curb our rights in the UK, imagine the situation in Balochistan,” Bhawal Mengal? said in a tweet.

    Earlier, similar posters featuring ‘Free Balochistan’ had appeared in Geneva, including on the side of buses, demanding freedom for the separatist Balochistan region of south-west Pakistan.

    Pakistan had at that time also summoned Switzerland’s envoy over the display of such posters in Geneva.

    The World Baloch Organisation (WBO) had organised a protest in September in front of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva to raise awareness of human rights violations in Balochistan.

    Human rights activists, Baloch representatives and allies of the Baloch cause came together during the 36th Session of the UNHRC to protest against gross human rights violations inflicted upon indigenous Baloch people.

    For decades in Balochistan, economic exploitation through the plundering of natural resources, and the systematic economic, social and political exclusion of indigenous Baloch people, has become the norm.

    In addition to this, enforced disappearances, extra-judicial killings and an escalating crackdown on freedom of expression are used as covert tools to brutally repress the Baloch peaceful struggle for justice, rights, and equality.

    Since the construction of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)has begun, the Baloch have been forcefully cleared, enforcedly disappeared and effectively excluded from the project at all levels – despite plentiful promises made by the Pakistani authorities of development and employment.

    pakistani once again watch a 'FREE BALOCHISTAN' campaign on over 100 busses in London
    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 By: TNN Source Link: CLICK HERE

    Highlights
    • The 'Free Balochistan' campaign has found its way to London, with more than a 100 buses flaunting posters about it
    • The campaign was being carried out on London's famous black cabs too
    • Pakistan put pressure on the UK to have the campaign removed from the taxis
    The 'Free Balochistan' campaign has now found its way to London, with more than a 100 buses carrying advertisements that say "Free Balochistan", "Save The Baloch People" and "Stop Enforced Disappearances", reported ANI.

    Pakistan is, of course, not happy.

    The campaign started early this month with posters exposing atrocities committed by Pakistan in the Baloch region being splashed across taxis. It was launched by the World Baloch Organization (WBO) and is gaining strength despite Pakistan's desperate attempts to nip it in the bud.

    Already, the Pakistan government has complained to the UK envoy in Islamabad. Following pressure from it on the UK foreign office, Transport for London ordered the removal of the advertisement from the city's famous black cabs.

    Still, on November 13, which is celebrated as Baloch Martyrs Day, the WBO upped the ante and moved its campaign to London's buses.

    Pakistani officials have labeled the campaign as "malicious" and "anti-Pakistan." This is not the first time a peaceful advertising campaign such as this one has irked Pakistan.

    Baloch leaders and WBO members had protested the removal of their slogans from London's black cabs. They claimed it was an attack on their freedom of expression and that Pakistan was acting like a bully by stifling and censoring the voices of Baloch people.

    "Pakistan's reaction is testimony to its suppressive nature, aggressively trying to curb our rights in UK, imagine the situation in Balochistan," tweeted WBO spokesperson Bhawal Mengal on November 4.
