HINDUSTHAN SALUTES THE BRAVE BALOCH.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ THE RESOLUTION BY US CONGRESSMAN SHOULD BE SUPPORTED BY THE WHOLE WORLD. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ THE BALOCH ARE A BRAVE PEOPLE BUT BADLY NEGLECTED AND PERSECUTED BY THE OPPRESSIVE AND THOROUGHLY CORRUPT ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ THE BALOCH OUGHT TO BECOME AS SOVEREIGN AS BANGLADESH. THEY SHOULD SURFACE AT LAST, TO BE SEEN ON THE WORLD SCENE. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ THE BALOCH ARE SECULAR BECAUSE THEY ARE BRAVE. THE BALOCH ARE LIKE THE PATHANS, NOT FUNDAMENTALIST OR FANATIC LIKE THE PAKISTANIS. THEY WILL GET ON EXTREMELY WELL WITH SECULAR BHARAT AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ AMERICA, THAT IS SO FAR AWAY, HAS SHOWN THE GUTS AND COURAGE TO CHAMPION THE BALOCH CAUSE. WHAT ABOUT NEXT DOOR INDIA? \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\NB: Balochistan was an integral part of India like Gujarat and Tamil Nadu today until 1947 when Nehru surrendered it unconditionally along with four other provinces to his bosom friend Mohammed Ali Jinnah.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ After the departure of the British the defence and safety of Balochistan was the direct responsibility of the Central Government in New Delhi. Most Indians still do not realize that in that year the GOVERNMENT OF INDIA became a "baboon or a clown" that washed off its hands from "Akhand Bharat" in a second. ===========\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In a message dated 17/02/2012 20:56:49 GMT Standard Time, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\com writes: US Congressman tables resolution calling for independence of Baloch By Huma Imtiaz\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Published: February 18, 2012 \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who chairs the US House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, has asked that the Baloch be given their right to self-determination. PHOTO: AFP/FILE \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ WASHINGTON: A week after he chaired a Congressional committee's hearing on Balochistan, US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher introduced tabled a resolution in the US Congress, asking for the Baloch be given their right of self-determination and to their own sovereign country. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The House Concurrent Resolution in the US House of Representatives has been co-sponsored by Representatives Louie Gohmert and Steve King. It highlights the history of Balochistan, and says that revolts in 1958, 1973 and 2005 "indicate continued popular discontent against rule by Islamabad, and the plunder of its vast natural wealth while Baluchistan remains the poorest province in Pakistan." \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The text says that there is also an insurgency underway in Sistan-Balochistan, which is being repressed by Iran. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Rohrabacher's resolution says that it is the US policy to "oppose aggression and the violation of human rights inherent in the subjugation of national groups as currently being shown in Iran and Pakistan against the aspirations of the Baloch people." .\\\\\\\\\\\\\ According to the resolution, the people of Balochistan that are "currently divided between Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan, have the right to self-determination and to their own sovereign country and they should be afforded the opportunity to choose their own status among the community of nations, living in peace and harmony, without external coercion." \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ In a statement from his office, Rohrabacher, who is also the Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, said, "The Baluchi, like other nations of people, have an innate right to self-determination. The political and ethnic discrimination they suffer is tragic and made more so because America is financing and selling arms to their oppressors in Islamabad." \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ The press release further added that Balochistan is "rich in natural resources but has been subjugated and exploited by Punjabi and Pashtun elites in Islamabad, leaving Baluchistan the country's poorest province." \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Rohrabacher had earlier this week introduced a bill calling for a medal be awarded to Dr Shakil Afridi for revealing the location of Osama bin Laden, directly aiding in the SEAL team operation to kill the former al Qaeda leader. __._,_.___ 000000000
