Yesterday President of Pakistan while addressing to National Assemble apologised from Baloch people,another apology,apology for what?don’t know,apology for past crimes which was committed by Pakistan on Baloch or apology in advance for that crimes which will commit in future.
In past when ever any Pakistani President, prime minister or a General commited apology soon after that apology a military operation took place in Balochistan against Baloch people.
There was a long history of apologies and results of these apologies.
I think first apology came from President Ayub Khan,when he apologies to Nawab Noroz Khan Zarakzai. Ayub Khan was said to have agreed to the terms of the surrender through an oath on the Quran. However, when Nowroz Khan came down from the hills, he and about 150 of his followers, including his sons and nephews, were arrested for armed rebellion against the state. On July 15, 1960 five of the leaders were executed by hanging in Hyderabad Jail. Nowroz was spared execution on account of his age, but died inKohlu Jail in 1964.
I think second apology came from zulfiqar Ali Bhutto,but later he dismissed the government of National Awami Party (NAP) and started a military operation in Balochistan in 1970s against Baloch Nationlists and Killed thousands of Baloch.I don’t know is that apology of Bhutto was for past crimes or for that crimes which he later commited.
Later there were few more apologies but don’t have importance.Then came the apology from General Pervaiz Musharraf.This apology followed by a massive military operation in Balochistan in 2005.In that operation in 2006 Nawab Akber Khan Bugti and in 2007 Nawabzada Balach marri got Martyred which is still continue and claimed thousands of lives of Baloch.
After General Pervaiz Musharaf,President Asif Ali Zardari apologized from Baloch but this apology proved to be more lethal than ever,before this apology they only abduct Baloch after that they start killing and dumping them which is continue till now.This policy of kill and dump starts with three Baloch Leaders.In April 2009, Baloch National Movement president Ghulam Mohammed Baloch and two other nationalist leaders (Lala Munir and Sher Muhammad), were seized from a small legal office and were allegedly “handcuffed, blindfolded and hustled into a waiting pickup truck which is in still use of intelligence forces in front of their lawyer and neighboring shopkeepers.”The gunmen were allegedly speaking in Persian (a national language of neighboring Afghanistan and Iran) Five days later on April 8 their bodies, “riddled with bullets” were found in a commercial area(wikipedia) and later hundreds of Baloch youth killed and dumped on similar pattern by Pakistani agencies and this policy is still continue.
I still unable to find that why rulers of Pakistan apologize from Baloch.Is they apologize for past crimes or apologize for those crime which they will commit in future?
But from experiences of past Baloch think that every apology is not for past crimes committed on Baloch but apology in advance for future crimes which will be conducted.
Now latest apology of President Zardari ,don’t know what will be its result but it will be not good for Baloch.
