    WASHINGTON: A week after he chaired a Congressional committee’s hearing on Balochistan, US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher introduced tabled a resolution in the US Congress, asking for the Baloch be given their right of self-determination and to their own sovereign country.

    The House Concurrent Resolution in the US House of Representatives has been co-sponsored by Representatives Louie Gohmert and Steve King. It highlights the history of Balochistan, and says that revolts in 1958, 1973 and 2005 “indicate continued popular discontent against rule by Islamabad, and the plunder of its vast natural wealth while Baluchistan remains the poorest province in Pakistan.”

    The text says that there is also an insurgency underway in Sistan-Balochistan, which is being repressed by Iran.

    Rohrabacher’s resolution says that it is the US policy to “oppose aggression and the violation of human rights inherent in the subjugation of national groups as currently being shown in Iran and Pakistan against the aspirations of the Baloch people.”
    .
    According to the resolution, the people of Balochistan that are “currently divided between Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan, have the right to self-determination and to their own sovereign country and they should be afforded the opportunity to choose their own status among the community of nations, living in peace and harmony, without external coercion.”

    In a statement from his office, Rohrabacher, who is also the Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, said, “The Baluchi, like other nations of people, have an innate right to self-determination. The political and ethnic discrimination they suffer is tragic and made more so because America is financing and selling arms to their oppressors in Islamabad.”

    The press release further added that Balochistan is “rich in natural resources but has been subjugated and exploited by Punjabi and Pashtun elites in Islamabad, leaving Baluchistan the country’s poorest province.”


    Rohrabacher had earlier this week introduced a bill calling for a medal be awarded to Dr Shakil Afridi for revealing the location of Osama bin Laden, directly aiding in the SEAL team operation to kill the former al Qaeda leader.

    It is good news, and finally!

    I would year to see such ideas gaining momentum. It is time Pakistan felt the heat, and what can be a better option to dismember Pakistan without having to have boots on the ground? The Baloch would be more than happy to help.

    Why would they care when even India, which had an integral connection and interest in the Lankan issue, could not care less and actually aided and abetted in that genocide ?

    Lets be clear about one thing. The US is raising all these noises about Balochistan because a part of the lawmakers believe that taking the fight to Pakistan is the way to win the war in Afghanistan. They even believe the transit issue to Afghanistan can be solved through an independent Balochistan which will be an American lackey. The noises are not for humanitarian reasons.

    The opinion of one (1) US congressman is not worth much. When bills are introduced out of committee for a vote is the time to pay attention.

    that all well and good. the basic point is that there is a feeling that after ww2 among the westeners that they learned there lesson and corrected there ways.

    before ww2 "democracy" wasn't used to justify regime changes.

    its like the preacher outside a whore house! before the ww2 the preacher was just a person visiting the whore house but afterwards he became the preacher of "freedom and democracy" but still visits the whore house so that makes him a hypocrite. for eg. west cites freedom and democracy to syria yet turns a blind eye to bahrain when both countries are run by dictators.
