چند برس قبل نیویارک میں پاکستان سے آنے والے صحافیوں کے حقوق کی تنظیم کے ایک رہنما سے میں نے پوچھا تھا ‘آپ لوگ لاپتہ بلوچ ٹی وی جرنلسٹ منیر مینگل کی رہائي کے لیے آواز کیوں نہیں اٹھاتے؟’ تو صحافی رہنما نے کہا تھا ‘پہلے تو یہ پتہ کرنا ہے کہ منیر مینگل صحافی ہے کہ نہیں؟
منیر مینگل خلیج سے پاکستان آکر بلوچ ٹی وی چینل شروع کرنا چاہتے تھے۔۔۔ اپریل دو ہزار چھ میں جب وہ دبئي سے کراچي ائيرپورٹ اترے ہی تھے کہ انہیں مبینہ طور پر خفیہ ایجینسوں گرفتار کر لیا تھا اور پھر حکمران پرویز مشرف کے سامنے پیش کیا گیا تھا۔
پاکستان ميں جو پریس کی نام نہاد آزادی کے بڑے بڑے دعوے کیے جاتے ہیں اسکی کئي مثالیں تو پرویز‍ مشرف کی سابقہ فوجی حکمرانی میں دیکھ چکے ہیں جب وکلاء کی تحریک کی کوریج کے دوران صحافیوں کے خلاف بھی آمریت اپنا ننگا ناچ ناچی تھی۔ قبائیلی علاقوں میں کام کرنے والے صحافیوں کے ساتھ تو بغداد پہلے سے ہی ہو رہا تھا اب بلوچ صحافی ملک سراج اکبر کے بلوچستان کی شورش پر لکھا آرٹیکل ‘ٹائمز آف انڈیا’ میں چھپنے پر صحافی کے خلاف بھونچال برپا کیا ہوا ہے۔ کیا فوجی ایجنسیوں کے فرشتے کیا ان کی کاسہ لیس ‘قومی پریس’ ہر طرف ‘غدار غدار’ اور ملک دشن کی ہاہاکار مچی ہوئي ہے۔
اور اب کوئٹہ سے نکلنے والے روزنامہ آساپ (بلوچي میں ‘آس’ آگ اور ‘آپ’ پانی کو کہتےہیں) نے روز روز کی نگرانی، جاسوسی اور ہراساں کیے جانے کے بعد احتجاجاً اخبار ہی بند کرنے کا اعلان کیا ہے۔ پہلے اخبار کے چیف ایڈیٹر نصیر دشتی پر مبینہ طور ایجینسوں نے قاتلانہ حملہ کروایا تھا۔ کوئٹہ سے نکلنے والے اس اردو روزنامے نے گم شدہ بلوچوں کی فہرست شائع کی تھی اور زرینہ مری کے ساتھ ریاستی تحویل میں ہونے والی مبینہ زیادتیوں کا پردہ چاک کیا تھا۔ ملک سراج اکبر اور ‘آساپ’ صحافیوں کے حقوق کی تنظیموں کے راڈار پر نہیں کیونکہ ان کے پاس ان کی طرف سے حب الوطنی کا سرٹیفیکیٹ نہیں ہے۔ اس سے پہلے سابقہ مشرقی پاکستان میں ڈھاکہ کےاخبار ‘اتفاق’ کے ساتھ ایسا ہوتا تھا۔
پاکستان میں پریس کی آزادی بلوچوں یا بلوچوں کی بات کرنے کے لیے نہیں ہے کہ اس سے قومی نظریاتی ریاست کی بنیادیں ہل جاتی ہیں۔۔۔ پاکستان جیسا نظریاتی اور نیوکلیائي طاقتور ملک بلوچی زبان کا نجی چینل برداشت نہیں کرسکا!

    Just want to point out that PFUJ did issue a general statement as you reported here. Hardly enough though….They certainly don’t seem serious but seem to be just going through the motions….

    One MAJOR complaint: The story by you in Daily Times under the title “Bramdagh justifies target killings in Balochistan” is certainly not fair and serves only to provide ammo to the clueless masses who will go “See, he is ‘mulk dushman’ Indian agent etc., etc…..
    I am reproducing your story here:

    QUETTA: Claiming that targeted killings were a justified response to the army’s actions in Balochistan, Baloch guerrilla commander Bramdagh Bugti wondered why the government did not comment on the army’s actions but condemned the death of Punjabis.

    Talking to Daily Times, the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) chief said he agreed with a recent article he had read that encouraged the Baloch to conduct more target killings. He said the same article had also advocated extending the practice into Punjab. To questions on the killing of 20 Baloch policemen in Naseerabad district and the target killing of Punjabi teachers, the BRP chief said he supported the actions of the separatists. He said they had been forced to resort to such acts by the actions meted out to them by Pakistani forces. He said the policemen had been “disloyal to their motherland”.

    To a question, Bugti said he was not hiding in Afghanistan and rejected the government’s allegations of Indian involvement in Balochistan.

    Is this the way you intended it? I don’t think that is being fair. The statements you report might be accurate but I am sure that is not the way Brahmdagh meant them. You leave out a lot of “ifs” that make a world of difference. I am reminded of his interview in Live with Talat – April 15, 2009 on AAJ TV (http://www.pkaffairs.com/playshow.asp?pageId=3178) where the very same questions were asked and the very same statements made.

    Talat’s performance is certainly worth watching — see hi constantly twist his face and lie like crazy including presenting as fact the ridiculous spin that the three Baloch leaders were killed fighting over the Solenki reward money.

    Below are a couple of my comments at the time:

    @usmanzone
    “Such politicians like Bugti and Marri took billions of dollars…”

    Starting your argument with a lie certainly tells me from where you are coming and where you are headed. And of course you continue to pile up lies after lies (”He was saying the same anti-state stuff after the govt stopped paying him royalities for the gas in Sui”, “the truth is Baloch say we are baloch first, Pakistani second”, etc. and @Humsey Panga’s “you know ordinary people in Dera were using sewer water for there daily use”)

    I am surprised no one has yet pasted those fake pics of Bugti’s Mahal in the cave yet but I am sure they will be coming soon. 😉

    @all
    I really had no problem with what Mr Bugti said and understand where he is coming from. Sorry he did not sugarcoat it for you guys and spin you some fantasy you want to hear. This is the way most Baloch I know feel. You might not like it but that’s the way it is. Calling him names and repeating lies might satisfy you but only displays your biases.

    Talat was terrible. Why was he continuously making stupid, crooked faces when BrahamDagh was talking? And why did he try to pass that pathetic lie: “The three Baloch leaders recently killed was a result of infighting over share from the booty collected for Solenki”? (And that meaningless flashing of images of those pamphlets was stvp!d!)

    Shame on you Talat. You really have no clue about the issue at hand.

    @Traffic
    “I am surprised that you are supporting this fascist. You do realize that he was saying that every baloch should kill atleast one punjabi.”

    I really am not. I am supporting a lot of what he is saying. I think you are focusing on the sound-bites and sensationalism. For example, regarding that Punjabi question, do me a favor and listen — LISTEN — to what he is saying (Start at 7:00 min, and thru to 10:30) Don’t focus on the first word (”Bil Kul!”) but what follows.

    It might surprise you but he also said “Na yay hamara Tarika-ay Kar kabhi hua hai, na ab hai, na aainda ja kar kabhi is tareeka-i-kar ko apnaiN gay”
    No, really he DID say that.
    😉

    “Basically he was trying to say that he and his family own balochistan and they want it to become a seperate country (ruled by bugtis ofcourse)”
    No he is not.

    Regarding my complaint above, It is happening as expected: Your story is going to be pasted everywhere and people will say “See this guy is a traitor!…”, etc.

    See for example:
