The 28th May of The Black Day in Occupied Baluchistan
Occupied Balochistan, Quetta (Press release, 24, May 2020) :
Free Baluchistan Movement under the leadership of patriotic leader, Mr, Hyrbyair Marri, would like to apprise FBM members, the Baloch nation and the international community through its press release that its information Dept on twitter desk would like to run a social media awareness campaign on twitter with this hashtag #NoToPakistaniNukes against the Pakistani nuclear tests which were conducted on 28th May, 1998, in Chagai district of Baluchistan that turned Chagai Mountains and surrounding areas into a wasteland where the fauna and flora of Baloch land became permanent victims of immeasurable nuclear radiation as result of the tests.
After the tests, Pakistan Army & ISI didn’t bother to take any measures of protecting the residents from the harms of radiation. On top of that, it even didn’t allow the local media and political activists to report the environmental damages of post-nuclear tests. Let alone the international media & (IAEA) international atomic energy agency, to visit Baluchistan and asses the real situation and the levels of radiation. Knowing that Pakistan would response to India’s Pokhran tests in Baluchistan, the Patriotic leader of Baluchistan, Mr. Hyrbyair Marri, at the time representing the will of Baloch nation in the so-called Baluchistan assembly, 11 days prior to the tests as soon somebody leaked the information to him that the nuclear tests will be conducted in Baluchistan , he issued a press release to the Intekhab Daily Newspaper and vociferously spoke out and told the Nawaz Sharif government not to carry out nuclear tests in Chagai district of Baluchistan.
If you’re so interested in nuclear testing, then do it in Pakistani areas of Punjab not in occupied Baluchistan! “Baluchistan has been kept backward and under developed and the proof of it was that it has the highest mortality rate in the region.” Given the long-running radioactive disastrous effects and the backwardness, “The tests would have ever lasting negative effects on Baluchistan’s ecological system.” The radioactivity would last generations after generations and our nation would immensely suffer from the radiation of the tests, said Baloch leader Hyrbyair Marri.
“Baluchistan is now dearly being remembered as a “nuclear test zone”; as they, the Pakistanis are now badly in need of conducting possible nuclear tests. perhaps the rulers have the sympathy of killing our people in a single go instead of allowing them to die in a painful slow death,” said Baloch leader, Mr. Hybyair Marri, in his statement when Pakistan was about to carry out the nuclear tests. Free Baluchistan Movement, headed by Mr. Hyrbyair Marri, would like to reiterate its principle stand that the nuclear tests that Pakistan carried out on Baloch soil in 1998 are regarded as a blatant act of war against Baluchistan’s sovereignty.
Pakistan has turned Baluchistan into a test zone of Tactical Weapons of Mass Destruction which includes the use of Baluchistan’s coast not only for the missiles tests but also for smuggling of lethal opium and heroin drugs to Europe, America, Africa and Middle East with the help of Pakistan Coast Guards and Frontier Corps it’s being monitored and managed by the Pakistani military intelligence (MI) whereby they are earning billions of dollars.
