WASHINGTON DC: Balochistan is an integral part of Pakistan and will remain as such and the ordinary Baloch can not be misguided by the fancy slogans of azadee of Nawabs and Sardars and their sons, said Dr. Wahid Baloch President of Baloch Council of North America (BCNA).
He asked the Baloch youths to shun the so called "war of independence" and focus on their education and not be misguided or brainwashed by these Nawabs and Sardars and their sons who are enjoying luxury life by themselves in Europe and are on payroll of foreign powers.
"Those who are pushing the ordinary Baloch into this so called "war of independence" for their personal gains to get them killed are equally responsible for their killing", said Dr. Wahid Baloch.
He asked the Baloch diaspora leaders to shun the militancy and negative politics of hate and bigot and come to the negotiating table for a positive, productive and meaningful dialogue to end this so called "war of independence" and adopt a more realistic approach that can benefit the Baloch people and improve their lives.
He asked all the Baloch militant groups to shun the path of militancy and violence, lay down their arms and come to the negotiating table to solve the problems that the people of Balochistan are facing.
"Instead the fighting against the state, they should fight the exploitative, abusive, opportunist and greedy Nawabs and Sardars, who are the main hurdle of Balochistan's development, and use only non-violent democratic and peaceful means of struggles to help the democratically elected Government of Dr. Malik to secure the Baloch rights within the Pakistani Federation", he said.
He said, dialogue and negotiations are the only way forward. He applauded Balochistan Chief minister Dr. Malik Baloch and Pakistan's Prime minister Mian Nawaz Saharif form their sincere efforts to resolve the Balochistan problems on priority bases and asked them to accelerate the development programs in Balochistan so that the people can benefit from them.
He also asked the Balochistan's Chief Minister Dr. Malik Baloch to immediately convene the long waited proposed All Pakistan Conference (APC) on Balochistan to collect recommendations and suggestions on how to address and resolve the Balochistan's issues and pave the way for a dialogue and negotiations to find an everlasting solution of the conflict within the federation amicably.
He said joblessness is a huge problem in Balochistan and jobless frustrated Baloch youths are an easy prey for the militants and extremists groups to fight their dirty war. Providing them with jobs to put food on their table will greatly help to remove their sense of frustration, alienation and marginalization and prevent them from being recruited and used by the terrorists and militant outfits.
He asked the Government of Balochistan to provide jobs for the jobless Baloch youths and asked the federal Government to fill the 3,692 vacancies under the Balochistan quota to accommodate Baloch youths in federal jobs that was promised under the Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan package.
He said Balochistan is going through a tough time and it is the responsibility of every Baloch to demonstrate a positive, more responsible and realistic attitude to help solve the Balochistan's problems.
He invited all Baloch Diaspora leaders and activists for a positive and constructive dialogue that can help resolve Balochistan's problems peacefully. He asked them to join the Baloch Council of North America (BCNA) to promote a positive and more realistic message to save and secure the Baloch people's rights within the Pakistan.
Dr. Baloch reiterated that the BCNA will continue to work with all democratic and nationalist forces in Pakistan to secure the Baloch rights through democratic, nonviolent and peaceful means within the federation of Pakistan and that the BCNA is against terrorism, violence and extremism in all of its forms and shapes.
