accommodation of Baloch women in all walks of life.

in Pakistan and how Pakistan is using the war on terror as a "cash-in business" over the blood of Pashtun people. He said, "hundreds of thousands of
Pashtun has been evicted from their home in Swat valley because of Pakistani military's carpet bombing and yet none of the Taliban leader has been
killed by Pakistan's military operation but only the Pashtun civilian have died. He said American drone has been more effective and successful in
eliminating the Taliban’s leaders than the Pakistani army.“

people. He said, "the United Nation and world community must not close their eyes over the ongoing Pakistan and Iranian crimes and gross human

prevent further bloodshed and save lives of innocent Baloch people, including women and children, whose lives are in great danger under the Pakistani
and Iranian occupation."
Thousand Baloch have been hanged in public by Iranian revolutionary guards and many hundreds have been killed by Pakistani Islamic Jihadi army.
Several hundred are still missing and more than 80,000 Baloch have been evicted from their homes by Pakistani army and are living in harsh conditions
as refuges in their own homeland without any food, water and medicine. "It is time for the world community and human rights organizations to come
forward and rescue the oppressed Baloch people of Balochistan." he said.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome and thank you for your time to come and join us here, in Washington Dc for this event. Before I begin, I request our friend and supporter, the
founder and Executive Director of Pen foundation, Mr. Hakim Saeed Baloch to preside the meeting. (Applause)
We are gathered here to de-celebrate the independence day of this unfortunate country called Pakistan. Hopefully this will be the last time this country
will be celebrating her last birthday.
Dear friends, 62 years ago, on this day, on 14th of Aug in 1947, a blunder happened, a big blunder, the biggest blunder in the history of mankind.
Pakistan was created out of India as a Islamic fundamentalist state based on religious ideology, despite the fact that majority of Indian Muslims strongly
oppose the idea to divide India on religious lines, but Mr. Jinnah insisted to go on with his separatist idea to please his British conspires to break-up
India into two countries.
Because of that blunder, hundreds of thousand Indian innocent people got killed and many hundred thousand became homeless. Properties were
damaged and the whole subcontinent was brought at the brink of civil war. Even today, after 62 years, the Indian, Pakistani and the world community is
still paying a heavy price of that blunder. The death toll is rising with every day it passes as we saw it in the Mumabi terror attacks. Even today, the creator
of this country, the British rulers, are holding their head, trying to figure out what to do with this country and how to fix their blunder. They have realized it
now that the creation of Pakistan was a big mistake, but its existence is now even pose a bigger and greater danger for the whole world.
Pakistan has done no good to the well being of its citizen and the world community but has contributed a lot of problems for its citizen and for the world.
From extremism and talibanization to terrorism , from Military dictatorship to Corruption, from political assassinations to torture and murders of innocent
citizen and from drug mafia to gang wars, you name it, Pakistan have it all.
Pakistan is a failing state and it is sliding to failure very fast. Sooner or later it will vanish from the world map. Those who are providing oxygen to prevent
her from collapsing should know that this state is not fixable. It is better to be done with it so that everyone can live in peace. As long as Pakistan exist,
there will be no peace in the world and the world will continue to bleed in the hands of extremists and terrorists who are being produced and trained in
Pakistani madrassas everyday with the help of Pakistani military and ISI to blackmail the west and world community.
Balochistan was never a part of Pakistan. Balochistan declared its independence on 11th of August 1947. On March 27, 1948, Pakistan attacked the
sovereign, Independent Balochistan, occupied it and forcefully annexed into Pakistan against the Baloch wishes. Since then, Balochistan is under the
illegal occupation of Pakistan and the Baloch people are fighting to end the illegal occupation of their land and exploitations of their resources. Pakistan
is in violation of international law for her continuous illegal occupation of Balochistan. Balochistan occupation must end and Balochistan’s sovereign
status as an independent state must be restored according to the international laws. Baloch people have every right to free their land from the occupiers.
