Achievement of Pak Blogistan; US Citizenship and Immigration Services Removed Balochistan from Country of Citizenship Column; still to go a long way

USCIS With thanks to Babar Jahangir, one of the visitors of my blog, who pointed out that the name of Baluchistan, has been taken out of the “USCIS Online Change of Address form”. After reading his email I checked the USCIS’s site where I found that the name Balochistan has been removed from the list of Country of Citizenship column.


The last time I checked the site was Tuesday, 25th August, the name was still there, so we can’t say that when has it actually happened, however the Super Lead story about the same published in daily Khabrian on yesterday 26th 2009 confirms that the name was there before 25th August 2009. The newspaper had also published screen shot of the same which could have been taken on the evening of 25th August before filing the story.

Khabrian is the second newspaper which has covered this story. Before, Daily Jasarat Karachi had published two columns news on its back page. The absence of news coverage of such a big issue in our mainstream media especially TV channels tells much negative about the role of our media, however, it has one good message for the society media journalists, blogger, they can do it by their own. The news broke by Teeth Maestro and highlighted by Talkhaba got immense coverage at the Blogosphere. It was then published Ahmed Quraishi, Pakistan Desk , Pak Alert Press, PKKH , Kashifiat, Sadda-e-Sindh, Defence PK, Pakistan Daily , ,, Haqeeqatthe current affairs and other blogs.

It worked partially. We would like to inform our readers that the US has removed Balochistan or Baluchistan from that list for which we are thankful to our “Masters” in Washington, although they still have to apologize for the notorious act. The Union of Patriotic Bloggers for Sovereign Pakistan (UPBSP) demands public apology by US authorities. We had demanded an official apology from US official and an immediate removal. The name has been removed and we hope that Pakistani diplomatic envoys will challenge the US officials for an official apology.

The moral of the story is that if united, we Bloggers can make a difference, a positive difference towards a sovereign Pakistan.

Dissenting Notes; the posts received both type of comments. To my surprise I received dozens of direct emails, all most all asking; do you know the miseries of Balochistan? Why did you present one side of picture? The most interesting reaction I received was of which reads; 

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration’s online change of address form (AR-11) offers ‘Baluchistan (Pakistan)’ as a ‘country of citizenship’ choice–along with other autonomous, one-time autonomous, disputed or independent entities. For ex., it lists ‘Cook Islands (NZ),’ described by Wikipedia as ‘a self-governing parliamentary democracy in free association with New Zealand. The US immigration site’s online registration form, however, does not list ‘Baluchistan (Pakistan)’ as a choice–simply ‘Pakistan.’  Nevertheless, it has one group (the Union of Patriotic for Sovereign Pakistan–UPBSP) rattled. This ‘newly formed network’ has started a ‘Containment of USA’ campaign. Its website states that ‘Some US government departments are quietly preparing the ground for the warlike act of recognizing Pakistan’s Balochistan province as an independent state by assigning a separate checklist to Balochistan against the “Country of citizenship” column of Immigration Form for non-US nationals.

 Where in my post Talkhaba have I used a single word against the Baloch’s rights? In order to resolve Balochistan Issue following step should be taken;

  1. Lodging of FIR against former dictator Pervez Musharraf for assassinating Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti
  2. FIR should also be lodged for the murder of Baloch leaders in Turbat  as per desire of their families
  3.  Provincial autonomy to the provinces under the 1973 constitution the federation should retain only the departments of defense, communication and finance while rest of the departments should be handed over to the provinces.
  4.  Gwadar port should be given under the control of provincial government. There must be an end to the role of land Mafia in Gwadar and the local people should be involved in development process there.
  5. Frontier Constabulary from Balochistan and putting the law enforcing agencies under the control of provincial government.
  6. Recovery of all missing people, ensuring human rights for the jailed people and providing shelter to homeless people of Balochistan.
  7.  A commission under the CJ should be established for assessing loses due to operation in Balochistan and compensation for the affected person.
  8. Royalty of Gas and other mineral should be given to Balochistan.
  9. Dam should be build and special funds be established for uplifting the agriculture of province.
  10.  Appropriate representation of Balochistan in federal bureaucracy and army.
  11.  Special funds for buidlin educational and health infrastructure.

Being a Pukhtoon [of NWFP] sympathizer of my Baloch brothers, I have no sympathy for the separatist elements in Balochistan.  They are not only the enemies of Pakistan but also Baloch people who are more patriotic than any other ethnic unit in Pakistan.

    Hereby I would also link to some books about fire
    extinguisher training. The site has strategic access to warehousing and shipping from the United States’ most notorious fires. There are so many resources out there today that we need to teach your kids. Many concerts are held in the park on hire. Your bulb packaging should tell you basic Fire Extinguisher Training information like how much voltage or wattage or amperage the lights pull so that you do have to hear them and are affected by them.
