    Influential Baloch lobby group in US decides to end activism against Pakistan


    by Zaki Khalid [Terminal X Desk] - In a move that is sure to surprise many, a leading Baloch lobbyist in the US who for many years has been calling for separation from the state of Pakistan, has decided to end activism against the very country he long accused of allegedly violating Baloch rights.

    Dr Wahid Baloch, founder and President of the now-defunct BSO-NA (Baloch Society of North America) graduated from the Bolan Medical College (University of Balochistan) in 1990 and went into self-exile in the US in 1992. Over the past decade, he has been lobbying for the separation of Balochistan province in meetings with American Congressmen, military/intelligence officials and diplomats. Wahid has long been claiming that the Pakistani state is engaged in an alleged 'genocide' of Baloch people and that the country's aim is to allegedly 'plunder' the vast minerals and resources in the province.

    In January 2014, Dr Wahid Baloch had released an appeal letter to the US, India and Israel, asking for their direct assistance in preventing an alleged killing spree of Baloch people at the hands of "Pakistani terrorist army".

    In his latest press release dated 26 May 2014, Dr Wahid Baloch took a big U-turn from his previous activities by announcing disassociation from what he calls, "the so called war of independence of Khans, Nawabs and Sardars". He vowed that the BSO-NA will work "within the Pakistani federation with the elected Balohcistan's government and pro-federation democratic, secular and nationalist forces of Pakistan to fight for and ensure the rights of Baloch people within the federation"
