Allah Nazar Baloch is a Baloch political activist[1] and former chairman of the Baloch Students Organization.[2]

Early life[edit]

Allah Nazar Baloch was born on 2 October 1968 in a respectable Baloch family at, Mehi (a small village) Mashkey,Awaran Balochistan,Pakistan. His father's name was Nabi Baksh Baloch (late). He was a brilliant student since his childhood at school and following matriculation in 1986 he got admission in Atta Shad Degree College Tubat (headquarter of Kech district. His distinctive performance in secondary school examination lead him to meritorious scholarship. Dr Allah Nazar is Balochistan’s most popular middle-class nationalist leader. Belonging from a modest family in Balochistan’s town of Mashkay, he started his political career from Baloch Students Organization (BSO). He founded his own faction of BSO in February 2002 that openly advocated an armed struggle for liberating Balochistan. In 2003, he went underground to organize his own militant group. His Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) made headlines when it claimed responsibility for killing three Chinese engineers in Gwadar on May 2, 2004.

He was picked up by intelligence agencies on March 25, 2005 from an apartment in Karachi where he had secretly come to meet his old BSO comrades. He remained missing for a year. Meanwhile, the BSO initiated mass protests throughout Balochistan and Karachi for his release. On August 12, 2006, Pakistan’s intelligence agencies shifted him to the jail ward of the Bolan Medical Complex in Baluchistan capital city of Quetta. During his incommunicado detention, he had been subjected to severe mental and physical torture. The photo of a frail Dr Nazar lying on an ambulance stature in the Bolan Medical Complex went viral among the Baloch youth and he soon became an iconic leader. After his release on bail, he went into hiding again and he now leads the terrorist group BLF (Baluchistan Liberation Front)

Quotes[edit]

"Those who know the history of the Baloch, those who see that Balochistan is being used as a colony, support our struggle for freedom. Those who have a conscience and are men of reason understand that it is our right to live as an independent people on our homeland. Some are attracted by our bravery, some appreciate our traditions, such as “mehman nawazi” [translates as ‘hospitality’. Mehman is ‘guest’ and nawazi is ‘supporting’], some voice their concerns over the violation of human rights in Balochistan by the Pakistan army."[3][this quote needs a citation]
