Brahamdagh Bugti, a grandson of Akbar Bugti, has urged India and the United States to help the Baloch people attain freedom from Pakistan. Bugti said Baloch people were being suppressed by the Pakistan Government which wants to take control of natural resources of the region.

“We will welcome India’s help for the Baloch people.We do not recognise the Constitution of 1973. We only want freedom,” The Daily Times quoted Bugti, as saying. He charged the Pakistan government of discriminatory behaviour, and particularly targeting Baloch people in the military offensive being carried out in the region.

“The Baloch people have always been considered as slaves. They had been forced to put up resistance against the usurpation of their rights,” Bugti added. Baloch people have long been demanding their right and control over the large deposits of natural gas and other resources which lies under the province’s geographical territory. They believe they are being bluffed by their government as the region still lacks basic amenities despite being rich in natural resources.

“Isn’t it a wrong that the people of the very district from where gas is being explored have to use wood for fire while the facility of gas is available in every house in Punjab,” Bugti said. Learn some Balochi history here.

The Problem? OIL AND GAS PIPELINES, along with a wealth of minerals in Balochistan. The Pipelines are needed to get the Caspian Sea oil to the Gulf of Oman and to India. It goes through Afghanistan and then through Balochistan. Here’s three images, two of them are pipeline pathways and the other is how the Durand Line divided Balochistan and made it part of Afghanistan and British India (Pakistan formed later), leaving it with no country, just a nationality governed by others. THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM.

Pipelinestan runs through Afghanistan and Balochistan (some call this Pashtunistan, due to the high percentage of people are Pastuns). Pakistan thinks this land belongs to them since 1948.

The Senators were relaying the need for a peaceful Balochistan in order for security forces to go elsewhere to fight the terrorists. Zadari told them to pay up what was owed, $1.6 Billion in the Coalition Support Fund, and to help in the energy sector and to put up another $2.5 Billion to help with the displaced citizens of Pakistan.

    Just amazing. Of course, they want the resources. If they don’t keep up their end, they have no rights to your land. Good luck.
