'Free Balochistan Campaign' on London Buses Starts

'Free Balochistan Campaign' on London Buses Starts”

In its latest campaign, the organisation put up "Free Balochistan" posters on over 100 London public transportation buses. It was launched by the World Baloch Organization (WBO) and is gaining strength despite Pakistan's desperate attempts to nip it in the bud.

Free Balochistan campaign was started early this month with posters that expose atrocities performed by Pakistan in Baloch region. "We started with taxi adverts, then did roadside billboards and now we are advertising on London buses". This had led to a fiery exchange between Pakistan and Swiss authorities.

Pakistan government complained about this to the United Kingdom envoy in Islamabad and we assumed that it will stop now. The campaign is powering ahead and will continue for weeks to come. Several taxis in London carried messages for freedom for Balochis.

Pakistani officials have labeled the campaign as "malicious" and "anti-Pakistan". This is not the first time a peaceful advertising campaign such as this one has irked Pakistan. "Pakistan's reaction is testimony to its suppressive nature, aggressively trying to curb our rights in United Kingdom, imagine the situation in Balochistan", tweeted WBO spokesperson Bhawal Mengal on November 4.

It is not just in the United Kingdom that the message for Baloch independence is being spread.

As per the reports, the World Baloch Organisation spokesperson Bhawal Mengal said that it is the third phase of London campaign to raise awareness about Pakistan's human right abuses in Balochistan and the Balochistan people right to self-determination. "The killings are happening right now and are sadly aided by American weapon systems that are being diverted to attack the secular and progressive Baloch people, including the misuse of US-supplied F-16 fighter jets and Cobra attack helicopters".

Balochistan, Pakistan's largest but least populated province, has for always been plagued by an insurgency by armed Baloch nationalist groups.

Pakistan often accuses India of fomenting unrest in the province, a charge that has been denied by New Delhi.
