Heavyweights' grandson appeals for Solecki's freedom
A young Briton and international Baluch rights activist who had come on a private visit to the US but was thoroughly mistreated at the Newark airport, handcuffed, deported, and his visa waiver privilege revoked has shed his bitterness about the incident and has called for the release of the abducted UN High Commission for Refugees official John Solecki.
Noordin Mengal, 22, a secular nationalist, was mistaken for an Islamic terrorist. He is a grandson of two top politicians, Sardar Ataullah Mengal and Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri, both of who think the concept of Allah is a rude joke with humanity.
The persons holding Mr. John Solecki should be well aware of the fact that it is not the United Nations but the Pakistani state which has persistently denied the Baloch people their basic human rights and has been responsible for untold atrocities in Balochistan. Mr. Solecki is connected with an organization involved in many humanitarian endeavours in Balochistan and should not be seen as an enemy, but as a friend who has been there at times when people have been victims of natural disasters or brutal atrocities at the hands of states.
