Pakistan-born Canadian author Tarek Fatah has said it is time for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to intervene and stop the slaughter and ethnic cleansing of the indigenous people of Balochistan.
"However, this would require the over a dozen Baloch political parties and guerilla groups to join hands to issue a ‘Balochistan Declaration about their future where the enemy is no longer the Pakistan Army, but China," he wrote in an article published in Toronto Sun.
"A territory as large as France, Balochistan is rich in oil, gas, copper, gold, coal and fisheries along its 750km coastline with the port of Gwadar strategically sitting at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz," he said.
"Predictably, the battle involving Baloch guerilla groups fighting what they consider Pakistan’s ‘occupation’ army now involves China and its economic interests. Among the myriad of Baloch political parties and armed groups involved, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) has taken their fight to attack Chinese interests in Pakistan’s urban cities," he said.
