Pakistan is the most dangerous country in the world for journalists.

imam-hussian-sayingPlease raise your voice and spread the message of hope and peace on social media and tear down the media iron curtain. All of us that sit idly are responsible for the oppression. Just like those who watched the oppression on Jesus a.s. or those that watched the oppression on the grandson of Muhammad (pubhp). The silent majority is just as much to blame are those actually pulling the trigger.

Beware of fake pics and fake news stories on social media and main stream media about alleged ties of Baloch activists and leaders with MOSSAD, RAW, C.I.A, Afghan RAMA.

The Pakistani police have raided some books and CDs shops in different area of Balochistan and arrested bookshop owners for keeping different books including ‘Waae Watan Hoshken Daar’ by Balochi language writer and poet Major Majeed Baloch.

According to SHO Gwadar, Mr Gul Hasan, a case has been registered against one bookseller, Khoda Bakhsh Baloch for buying and selling ‘Waae Watan Hoshken Daar’

A local journalist Behram Baloch told BBC Urdu that the authorities did not issue any notification to ban this book.

According BBC an effected bookseller from Gwadar said that he did not have Major Majeed Baloch’s book in his shop, however, the police confiscated books about history of Baloch and Balochistan and. The seized books include a famous book ‘The History of Balochistan’ by Lala Hatto and ‘Baloch’ by Dr Shah Mohammad Marri Baloch.

Police sources said the FIR against the book vendors only Waae Watan Hoshken Daar’ and the writer of this book Major Majid has been living in Muscat since 40 years.

He said, “Waae Watan Hoshken Daar ‘ mean ‘a wood of my country [Balochistan] is more than anything for us.”

Reacting about the confiscations books he said, “You read this book. It is about Baloch history, Baloch traditions, and it about war in Balochistan. This is a history book and it is beyond my understanding why this book is being banned?”

He expressed astonishment on the behaviour of state [Pakistan] and said, “I certainly wrote about human rights violation in Balochistan in my book but now-a-days every newspaper contains such news. Apart of that the book is about Balochistan’s history. Is it a crime to write about Baloch history and geography?”

Gwadar District Police Officer Pervez Khan said, “I still have not seen the whole book but reportedly page 52 and 55 of this book contain some paragraphs which directly incite people against the state and the Army.”

He said, “The government has not banned any material but selling and buying anti- Pakistan items are prohibited by law. Under this law action has been taken against CD and booksellers.”

The provincial information minister, Abdul Rahim Ziaratwal told the BBC that if a book has been banned by the government and it kept in any shop then the shop owner should know about it, but the if the government do not put any restriction on a book and it kept and sold, then it is not the fault of the bookseller. In which case there is should be no action against them.

Meanwhile sources confirmed that Pakistani security forces raided Al Badar Bookshop and news agency and seized a number of books on Balochistan and the Baloch people. The Pakistani forces also arrested Khuda Bakhsh, a salesman at the bookshop.

District Police Officer Preves Umrani told Dawn, “Police raided the bookshop after receiving information about objectionable books and other material kept there.

Course books on Balochi grammar and literature were also labelled as ‘anti-Pakistani’ because reading and teaching Balochi is considered anti-Islamic and anti-Pakistani by the forces of occupation in Balochistan.

  • Dont use imam hussains saying to justify your designs against Pakistan. You make me sick. Pakistan Army has so much to answer for. Most importantly why is this operation getting under way so late and why the Indian agents fighting for Balochistans secession from Pakistan not dead yet: dead, dismembered, decimated, exterminated to the DNA in their genes! Imam Hussain’s saying is for oppressed human beings. Those who betray the Muslims and import arms to incite rebellion at the behest of pagan powers are mice and cockroaches with no pretension rights reserved for human beings. Sparing their lives is cruel in the extreme to people who live and want to live in peace. As these pests multiply they become oppressors to to all those who dont subscribe to their fissiparous ideologies and violent ways. That is the real oppression of humanity that you espouse by supporting these pests! Its you who Imam Hussain was referring to as being “silent”. As for me i shall never remain silent while you perpetrate such ignominious and draconian oppression.”Labaik ya hussain” Pakistan Zindabad

    • It was only logical to expect the pro-army trolls like you to put in their ten cents. Historically the article is on the money, your Napak army has a long and sordid history of killing non-Punjabi Pakistanis, be it Bengalis, Balochis, Sindhis, Pathans or Mohajirs. Tell me one operation that these cowards have taken in Punjab, even though Punjab to me is the epic-center of all the terrorist activities in Pakistan. Never have they killed any of their fellow ethnic tribal Punjabis.

  • Pakistan Army Is the Worst enemy of Pakistan itself. Pakistan is on Its way to destruction due to the power mongering Army. In order to protect its citizen and it’s rights , Pakistan army must be controlled .
    May the Almighty Allah Protect the Pakistan and it’s Citizen.
