Separate Independent Balochistan from Pakistan bill tabled in USA Congress

Separate Independent Balochistan from Pakistan bill tabled in USA Congress

In US congress a bill has been tabled calling upon Pakistan to recognize the right of self-determination for Balochistan.

The bill has been introduced by California Republican Dana Rohrabacher and co-sponsored by two other Republican Congressmen Louie Gohmert (Texas) and Steve King (Iowa); the House Concurrent Resolution says that the Baluchi nation has a "historic right to self-determination."



The bill states that Baluchistan is currently divided between Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan with no sovereign rights of its own, the resolution explains that "in Pakistan especially, the Baluchi people are subjected to violence and extrajudicial killing," and therefore, the Baluchi people "have the right to self-determination and to their own sovereign country; and they should be afforded the opportunity to choose their own status."

The statement explained that historically Baluchistan was an independently governed entity known as the Baluch Khanate of Kalat which came to an end after invasions from both British and Persian armies. An attempt to regain independence in 1947 was crushed by an invasion by Pakistan.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Express, the top US diplomat in Pakistan said that his country was concerned at the human rights situation in Balochistan and the US administration should take up the ‘alarming issue’ with Pakistani leaders.

As China is the friend of Pakistan this will never happen without the help of other Asian countries and I do not think other nations will help.

So it’s just game of politics.

American Congress is not controlled by government this is excellent feature of American Congress they can discuss anything without fear and in public domain.

I do hope this bill will help most people of Pakistan. Sounds good to me, anyhow.

It is a pro-Islamic policy. No doubt. Am I wrong?
Islamic fundamentalism has always worked on keeping India bigger and their own countries smaller. It was to their strategic advantage. A larger India would mean disunited India. Many Indians. Western help in terms of industrialisation will be difficult for large India. And a large market with single currency for petroleum products is readymade.
Nehru accepted a smaller India, sans Pakistan and Bangladesh and it was a smart move.
A separate Balochistan is an attempt for Islamisation of world trying to get rid of religious fanaticism. My doors are closed at this fragmented and narrow minded approach.

Being a Pakistani & from the behalf of whole Pakistani Nation, I condemn this bill, US cant dare to pass any bill like this which can be the reason of separating our largest province..Pakistani Nation is very angry at this american effort.All the poor things are happening just because of our selfish government policies,Nation is united but the govt. is very bad,
In 1970s the same political party was in government when East Pakistan(Bangladesh) separate from us, & now this govt is going to separate our largest province Baluchistan.

Thanks for sharing and leaving a lovely comment on my blog!

My comment above is a joke of sorts. It is not serious at all.
I have respect for Islam and had many good friends in childhood. Our current family doctor is a Muslim and is deeply regarded by all of us.
I have good wishes for Pakistan and hope that Indo Pakistan talks continue !!
