Pakistanis take aim at Baluch in cyberspace
As the war for liberation of Baluchistan continues, Pakistan has been unnerved by the expose of its crimes against humanity in Baluchistan and loot and plunder of Baluch resources.
Unlike the past wars of liberation, the worldwide web has opened new opportunities for the Baluch people to realize their dream of independence and bringing to an end the trail of blood and tears in Baluchistan.
A number of Baluch web sites all over the world are mushrooming, some of them in English, adding to the nightmare of the Punjabi generals in Islamabad who have a strange desire to dominate people of other faith and nations, include the Baluch.
Some of the most popular web sites in English are www.balochwarna.org, www.balochvoice.org, www.thebaluch.com, www.balochunity.org, www.bso-na.org
In addition to illegal detentions, abduction and torture, Pakistan’s government is now using new ways in the wake of the joint statement to shut down legitimate outlets for Balochi opinion.
For example, Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) a few days ago used that country’s draconian Cyber Crime Act to shut down a popular Balochi website, www.balochunity.org.
But as of Sunday, its promoters used facilities in Dubai to revive the website, dissident Balochistan sources told this newspaper.
Pakistan’s Cyber Crime Act prescribes a punishment of up to 14 years in prison for propaganda against Pakistan’s security forces, a tool that is expected to be used to tighten efforts to silence Balochis.
