Abdul Hamid Khan

Benazir Bhutto, Ex Prime Minister of Pakistan cannot confront with Pakistani Military and its ISI. Her past has witnessed, where her Minister
from NWFP Nasrullah Khan Babur, with the help of ISI had openly helped fundamentalism.
To bar Nawaz Sharif another Ex Prime Minister of
Pakistan from participating in Elections by sending him to exile, will only benefit the fundamentalists, because Benazir has lost her credibility
and confidence among the general masses of Pakistan because of her help to Military regime which does not care about democracy and
Judiciary. The USA and Europe should realize that General Musharraf has become an empty cartridge, because of his anti democracy and
dual policy with both the USA, Europe and Fundamentalism. Whoever tries to help Military regime by giving stake in Politics, he or she will
also fall down along with Musharraf. If Nawaz Sharif is not allowed to come to Pakistan and participate in elections, I think, general masses
are left with no choice, but to vote for the fundamentalists, instead of Musharraf and his Muslim League Q.
I humbly suggest, that the
democratic world including USA and European Union should support democracy, not personalities, in Pakistan as well as in the world.
world community should also encourage and help moderate religious people, like Brelvi Muslims, Sophi Muslims and Shia moderates
everywhere in the world, particularly in east and South Asia including Iraq and Pakistan to overcome fundamentalists.
The world and
particularly those who want to contain terrorism and fundamentalism, should first redress their past mistakes, by which they had encouraged
the Wahabi fundamentalism. 
The USA and so-called Human Rights organizations had snubbed those leaders and Military heads of
Afghanistan by terming them War Lords, whose struggle brought victory to the USA over Talibaan fundamentalists. The Northern Alliance who
had effectively fought war with Talibaan with and even without USA. The anti War lords campaign of USA and other countries pushed the
northern alliance behind the walls after Talibaan had been defeated. The anti Northern Alliance campaign was lodged by the world, because
of the Pakistani Military propaganda against the real war heroes. The result of this illogical policy brought back Talibaan to Afghanistan by the
dual and clever Policy of General Musharraf and his ISI.
Mr. George W Bush administration had never left any stone unturned in praising
General Musharraf and Pakistani Forces. Consequently, ISI played its role and strengthened Talibaan by dodging USA and its Intelligence
agencies. Now USA and its coalition forces are facing serious consequences in Afghanistan.


Again USA did mistakes after mistakes.
blame Sadam for WMD proved false or misguiding Intelligence reports.
The bitter truth is, Sadam did never help and encourage Wahabi
fundamentalism and terrorism in spite of his many mistakes and crimes.
Whether one accepts or not but the fact is, World has witnessed
inflow of terrorists after fall of Sadam regime.
Notwithstanding, USA can see or not, the fact is, mostly terrorists come from the most
trustworthy country of USA, the Saudia Arabia. The second from Jordan, Syria, Iran and other USA friendly Arab countries. All neighbour
countries’ nationals are actively involved in flaming Iraq against USA and its allies.

The most important thing which is considered in each and
every crime Is the CAUSE, which is ignored by the USA. This is also a main reason behind the failure of US and it’s allies’ struggle against
the worldwide terrorism. The fact of the CAUSE behind the terrorism against USA, Europe, Russia, India, Philippine is the ignorance of all the
affected countries, which have failed to control or to contain the evils of terrorism. This is also true that the fact behind this CAUSE is atrocities
and injustice. But the main fact behind this CAUSE-a New threat of 21st century- is an IDEOLOGY. This ideology is based on hatred, non-
tolerance and madness of ONE Arab country which has large Oil resources and is a best friend of USA. That country has been exporting its
ideology with the help of Pakistan Army and its ISI during and even after the late General Zia, who was also a best friend of USA like General
Musharraf. That Arab country is not democratic, which does care of Human Rights, whose nationals are the number one among all the
terrorists in number and skill wise. That Arab country gives billions to Pakistan to spread its ideology through Mosques, Madrasas, Tablighis
(religious preachers) and threatening others by using terrorists. As a result of that country and its perpetrator- Pakistan, the Moderate Brelvi
Muslims, the most human loving Sophi Muslims and moderate Shias and other moderate people have become victim of that Wahabi
ISI puts 60% of the Saudi Wahabi funds in to its own pockets and Spends the rest 40% on the arming, training and logistics,
salaries and other welfare of the killed terrorists’ families. ISI recruits the youth of this particular Wahabi faith. During and after General Zia,
Wahabis have been recruited, promoted in the higher rank of Pakistani forces, its Judiciary and administration throughout Pakistan and its
occupied Jammu & Kashmir including Gilgit Baltistan.

USA hits here and there and blocks and sanctions this and that, but never harms the
actual source of this IDEOLOGY of Terrorism. It’s regrettable USA praises both these countries Saudi Arab and Pakistan and hopes that this
friendship will help its fight against terrorism. 
Is it possible that a Tiger or Lion be restrained from killing a goat if the owner befriends the tiger
or lion? No, never. This is why USA policy against terrorism has failed, because USA praises those who are the main source behind this

Shias of Iraq and non Pushton of Afghanistan were the sympathizers of the USA against Sadam and Talibaan.
USA chose a
Pushton, Hamid Karzai as a leader of Afghanistan by pushing back Northern Alliance, with the hope to bring the majority 
Pushton tribes into
the peaceful democratic process. But unfortunately, Karzai failed to bring Pushton to the USA ring. Pushton were given all the possible
weapons and other facilities by the same Pakistani ISI dodging the American Inteligence. On the other hand USA and Karzai left no stone
unturned to weaken the Northern Alliance Military and its political power. Talibaan gained their power, which damaged the USA and Afghan
peaceful and democratic process seriously.

Meanwhile Shias of Iraq who were the sympathizers of USA and supporters of USA war against
Sadam were mishandled by the USA and its Allies after invasion. Americans hit the Shias without any future strategy and logic.
May I ask the
USA and its Allies, is it possible, that Wahabi who run the whole terrorist network by support of Saudi Arab and Pakistan will give up their

I don’t think, that Wahabis, whose ideology is based on hating others will support USA, Europe and respect Christians, Hindus
and other religions, or even the non-Wahabi Muslims, by the false friendship of Saudi King or General Musharaf, the nature and habit of both
of them is hypocrisy. While USA and its European Allies are turning more and more moderate Muslims against themselves if not making
enemy. In such circumstance, who will be supporter of USA and its Allies after their forces would have left Afghanistan and Iraq.

In my view on
one hand, the civilized world including USA, Europe, Russia and China should change their strategy and attitude towards the main financier,
exporter of Wahabi ideology, the kingdom of Saudi Arab and perpetrator, Pakistan. On the other hand, the World Community including USA
should encourage, help and trust the moderate Muslims (Brelvis, Sophis and other moderate Shia Muslims) but not by weapons, like what it
did in the past. I don’t think unless these changes are done, mere praising and helping the terrorist sources (Saudi Arab and Pakistan)
terrorism will be vanished. Helping Pakistan Military and Saudi Kingdom has increased and will increase and strengthen the terrorism in the
future instead of decreasing it, the past practice has shown this BITTER TRUTH.

Balawaristan: BNF Chief Abdul Hamid Speech to a
Historic Gathering
June 8, 2008

English translation of Chairman Balawaristan National Front (BNF) Abdul Hamid Khan's telephonic
address to a public gathering at Gahkuch dated June 8, 2008

My dear brothers, sisters of Gilgit-Baltistan, Ladakh, Chitral and Kohistan; youth of BNSO, GBDA Leaders
and distinguished guests,

I am proud of the fact that after ten years' separation, I have the opportunity to address a public gathering at
Gahkuch today. My brothers, sisters and respected elders, I am not a leader nor a Quaid but a servant of my
people. The word leader or Quaid is not a self-proclaimed title but a trust of a nation. Whoever a nation likes
bestows the honor on him. This can only be possible when a person remains steadfast in his struggle for a
national cause and stand by his nation, not the one who takes side with the usurpers. If anyone of you
comes forward and dedicates himself to the struggle for taking the nation out of the whirpool and lead the
people, the nation will choose him/her as their leader.
I want to let you know, I never keep my nation in dark by make cheap and emotional statements. I try to clear my stand according to the international
laws and principles. Our stand does not only fulfil UNO but also matches with the legal stand of Pakistan. But this an ironic that Pakistan has always
been discouraged our peaceful and democratic struggle, whether it's so-called democratic government of Military dictatorship. This was not because
our illegal stand, but because of the double standard of government of Pakistan itself. The stand of Pakistan to its public and national media was
different than its international and legal stand, this was the reason the treatment of every consecutive governments of Pakistan either Military of civilian
were pro-people. Sometimes Pakistani regimes were being avoiding to give our deserved rights by the pretext of sensitivity of our country
(Balawaristan) and sometimes by the pretext of Kashmir dispute and its own constitution. In spite of all that if any one dared to raise any question or
challenge their occupation, Pakistan has been trying to eliminate such people from its way. This was the reason, my life was under threat when I
brought its inhuman treatment and illegal occupation to the UN and other member countries of the democratic world. Our bosses (not our rulers,
because we never caste any vote to them) do not like bitter truth and whoever speaks truth they use bullet to silence his/her voice, like what they did
with 80 years old Balochi leader Nawab Akbar Bugti. Government of Pakistan also wants to eliminate me forever, because I am alone ,who presents
the true face of Pakistani occupation forces in Balawaristan (Occupied Gilgit Baltistan) to the international community.

As you know that I did not leave my country because of livelihood of me or my children, but because to save my life as well as the life of 2 million
enslave people of this region. I have to inform the international community about the misery caused due to the illegal occupation of Pakistan since 16th
Nov. 1947. This will be your assessment and you are the judge, whether I have been able to put your case in good direction or not.

I would like to tell something about religious or sectarian violence. This is a kind of diseases, which has been injected in to the bodies of our nation,
when our people stood united against the occupation of Pakistan and it's ill-treatment and un-democratic behaviour since 1971. The deceased
national leader of Punyal Fazlur Rahamn Alamgir and Adv. Sher Wali who is luckily present among you, were released from Jail by breaking it by the
public when we were united without religious and sectarian differences. Since then Pakistani occupying regime and its intelligence agencies are
creating sectarian tension among us. As a result hundreds and hundreds innocent people lost their lives, but no one has been given punishment even
for a single day so far. The reason of giving free hand to the murderers and conspirators, because the murderer, conspirator and judge were the same
occupation regime. How a killer and conspirator can diliver judgement against himself? This was the reason behind our 60 years long slavery. Our
motherland has become the last colony of 21st Century. We don't have any share and any right to say anything in our house (motherland). We were
innocent and simpleton, that why we querrled each other on sectarian basis and the enemies (Pakistan Pathans and Punjabis) ruled us without
hindrance because of our disunity. Today we have no control over our water resources, we don't have control over our mountains and plains. All kind of
our resources are plundered by Pakistani occupying regime, who do not face any challenge from us, because we don't fight them and we don't have
any institutional or representative body to challenge their authority. I appeal to the sisters, brothers, don't involve in to any kind of crime like killing a
religious or sectarian culprit, if we need our properties and motherland is under our control. You should not kill anyone on the basis of religious
differences even if anyone provokes you. If you kill anyone it means you are fulfilling the evil design of our enemy, whose design is to divide us by
sectarian clashes and then rule on us without any hindrance. I hope that you all will promise to be united and don't involved yourself in to sectarianism.
Revive your historical blood relation without any discrimination and get your rights guaranteed.

Some people blame us that we are anti-Pakistan and want to break Pakistan. This is wrong and misinterpretation of intelligence agencies and their

As a country we are not against Pakistan. But we are against the illegal occupation of Pakistan and it's wrong policies since 16 Nov. 1947.

I sent congratulation to the Pakistan Muslim League N and Pakistan People's Party, when they got success in recent elections against the Military
dictator. This is because we support democracy and do not support dictatorship and monarch and kingdom throughout the world. This congratulation
to Pakistani Political parties does not mean that we have changed our stand and accepted the illegal occupation and atrocities of Pakistan NO NEVER.

We don't take any plea for making dispute our motherland with the J&K. This was Pakistan which has made this area as disputed part of Jammu &
Kashmir (J&K) for its own interest not for us. This was Pakistan long stand in UN and other international fora that Balawaristan (Gilgit Baltistan) is not
part of Pakistan because it's a disputed part of J&K. If we quote the same thing, that Gilgit Baltistan is not part of Pakistan then why government of
Pakistan and it's agencies become ferocious and try to eliminate such people who speak the truth.

You are the witness in the past that we did not take part in the elections of Pakistan and you observed recently, that the 2 million people of Balawaristan
have no right in the elections of Pakistan. What does it mean, because we are not Pakistani citizens. We don't have any involvement in the elections of
Pakistani President, Prime Minister and Ministers and even members of Pakistani Assemblies. There is no single word in the constitution of Pakistan
about our area. If we are not a part of Pakistan , then how the question of breaking it arises and how we can break it. There is no logic behind this
blame, that we the nationalists of Balawaristan are trying to break and disintegrate of Pakistan.

We don't have any evil intention against Pakistan. We don't want to disintegrate Pakistan. Pakistanis themselves are involved in the disintegration of
Pakistan, because of its long Military rule. Pakistanis themselves broken Pakistan in 1971 by killing and raping Bengalis. Now Pakistani are trying to
break Baluchistan and Sindh provinces by killing them and creating terror. Pakistan have 4 provinces and 8 tribal regions. Pakistan compromises on
these 4 Provinces and 8 Tribal agencies. Pakistan can be divided in to pieces or can be disintegrated, if and when any of its province or Tribal agency
is separated. Pakistan does not break or disintegrate if and when Balawaristan gets FREEDOM, because its not part of Pakistan. Its the obligation of
Pakistan to end its occupation over Balawaristan and its occupied J&K according to UNCIP resolutions.

According to UNCIP resolutions, the stage of Balawaristan and J&K to annex or merge in to Pakistan OR India is still awaited.

But Pakistan could have given Special Provincial powers OR it occupied J&K like setup till the decision of the whole J&K issue. But Pakistan cannot
make this part as its own territory or province in the presence of UN resolutions. The people who demand for province of Pakistan or Pakistani
constitutional rights are either sycophants and want to get personal benefits and do not bother about the interest of the people and don't bother about
the International laws. Due to such people the hatred and opposition among the people of Balawaristan against Pakistan is on the high ever today.

The audience, instead of rulers, when I say Boss or masters, some people may raise objection. Objection and different opinion is the soul of the
democracy and we accept it. But we don't consider those as our rulers, who we did not elect by our votes. Those can be termed as rulers and are
respected as rulers, who have become elected by our votes. Pakistanis do impose themselves on us without any legal agreement or any justification,
because we did not vote them and we did not endorse them. Pakistani do impose them by the force. Some time they choose the designation of
Minister of Kashmir and Northern Areas Affairs (KANA) with full powers like an ancient king and sometimes they use the designation as Chief Executive
and no Chairman, whatever the designation the same Pakistani imposed Minister is acting as king with impunity and above the law.

My dear brothers and sisters, I am very happy that the youth of our nation has gained political wisdom and our nation is awakening today. This is a
result of the struggle of all of you. The main proof of this national awakening is that the nation and especially our colleagues in GBDA did not waste
even a second and informed the nation about the hollowness of the so-called package announced by Pervez Musharraf. This was a sign of unity of the
nation too.

You know that what are the obstacles and hindrances in the path of freedom. A propaganda has been launched against me in connivance with the
occupiers since 1999 in which some of our constrained brothers in the media are also involved. It has been made a crime even to take my name. Last
year when I stepped into a free world from the life of solitude and started to represent you in the European Parliament and other international forums,
the intensity of the smear campaign against me intensified at the national and international levels. I am happy to say that our people through their
wisdom and sagacity have foiled the conspiracies of the usurpers and their agents. It shows that our destiny is not far away, because the nation is not
in slumber and illusion like in the past. The nation now understands that sectarianism and lack of political awareness are the main causes of slavery.
My brothers and respected colleagues, you tell me is there any nation in the world who accepts slavery of others in the name of religion. Don't you
deserve freedom? Will you not remain Muslim if you got independence? Were we not Muslims before Pakistan occupied us? In fact, before 1947, we
were good Muslims and good human being but as soon as our interaction with the Pakistanis increased our standard of character started to degrade.
To be a good Muslim, a person should possess a good moral character and should not fall prey to the shenanigans of occupiers and their agents.
These people exploit your resources by enslaving you and push you to the abysmal depth of immorality by eliminating your culture, history and identity.
Pakistan very cleverly made us its slave in 1947 due to our innocence and political immaturity. It also made the area liberated by our forefathers
disputed without even their information. On April 28, 1949, the United Nations through a resolution asked Pakistan to withdraw its troops from Gilgit-
Baltistan within seven weeks. Pakistan sought twelve weeks to implement the UN resolution which was acceded to by the world body. Besides,
Pakistan was also asked to ensure self-rule in Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan. Did the Pakistani troops went back or self-rule was ensured
in the area? No, instead of implanting the UN resolution Pakistan kept on consolidating its occupation. Look at Pakistan's sincerity: the day when the
UN asked it to withdraw its troops from the region on April 28, 1949, Pakistan entered into a bogus agreement with Chaudhry Ghulam Abbas and
Sardar Ibrahim of Kashmir to perpetuate its rule on you. Later, Sardar Ibrahim himself declared the so-called pact fake. Even our revolutionary troops
and the so-called Mirs were kept out of the bogus agreement.

Pakistan has also looted our land and resources like war booty. The construction of Basha Dam is also a part of the conspiracy to drown our land and
destroy our culture and history.

Dear friends, under the divide and rule policy, Pakistan has succeeded to divide the people of Gilgit-Baltistan on sectarian lines and deprive them of
their rights. Pakistan's so-called leaders sent thousands of NLI personnel to Kargil like mercenaries and when they sacrificed their lives the credit was
given to the so-called mujahideen. In this war, our 3,000 brothers were killed and hundreds others made paralyzed. Ironically, Pakistan accepted the
dead bodies of its citizens but refused that of our brothers terming them mujahideen. As a result, scores of bodies of our brothers were buried in the
mountain of Kargil. Through human rights organizations we appeal to the elected government of Pakistan to arrange the return of the NLI personnel's
bodies to bury them in their hometowns. We also demand that Musharraf should stand trial for killing 3,000 NLI personnel in the Kargil misadventure.
My brothers and sisters, our elders were sent to jail when they demanded a separate province; when they talked of constitutional rights they were put
behind bars and when they sought right to vote they were also imprisoned. When emergency was declared in Pakistan, the whole Pakistanis rose in
revolt, but no one cares about Gilgit-Baltistan where two million people have been rotting under a perpetual martial law –like rule for the last over 60
years. Did our elders liberate Gilgit-Baltistan only to live a life of slavery in the 21st century.

Our brothers are not trusted for the posts of a DCO or an SSP. Government officials from Gilgit-Baltistan are looked down upon. Have we no right to
become the prime minister, president, chief justice of the Supreme Court or the army chief? But if you join Pakistan your destiny would be to become
voters of Pakistani leaders only. We have not one but hundreds of able personnel in the NLI and outside in the presence of whom people like Ziaul
Haq and Musharraf have no quality even to become a Havaldar. But as long as we remain under the control of Pakistan our destiny would remain the

Ladies and gentlemen, Pakistan always refers to the UN resolutions due to which it cannot amalgamate Gilgit-Baltistan in its constitution nor can
make it its province. In the constitution, there is no mention of Gilgit-Baltistan, because the international community does not recognize Gilgit-Baltistan
as part of Pakistan, but a disputed part of Kashmir. As a result, the demand by some of our friends for the constitutional rights or a separate province is
not given much importance, because Pakistan cannot include Gilgit-Baltistan in its constitution by separating it from the Kashmir dispute. By making it
a province or allocating a few seats in parliament, Pakistan cannot take the risk of violating its own stance or that of the UN. However, the region can be
given a special provincial status without bringing it under the constitution of Pakistan.

But Pakistan has treated us as its slave for the last over 60 years, not due to constitutional constraints but because of the ill intentions of its rulers.
Pakistan has maintained its control on Gilgit-Baltistan not through any law or principle but under the fake law of April 28, 1949. Now the time has come
we exposed the fakeness of the document and take action against those behind the bogus document. Now our nation should expedite efforts to
become a respectable nation of the world instead of remaining slaves of others by dividing itself on sectarian lines.

Dear friends, you should never pin any hope on these occupiers of our land who divided you on sectarian basis and destroyed your unity besides
looting your natural resources. In the presence of the usurpers, our rights and honor can never remain safe. To expect anything good from those who
have kept us in slavery for the last over 60 years would be equal to deceive your future generation.

My dear brothers and sisters, today we have to ask ourselves whether we have to further waste our time in struggling to become voters of Pakistani
leaders or have to think of attaining our own rights and live as an independent nation in the civilized world. This is a decision which you have to take. As
far as BNF is concerned, we have long ago decided not to live a slave's life, not to remain Pakistan's voters, we do not need the continuation of judicial
commissioner but need our own high court and supreme court which would not be under the control of Pakistan. We do not need NALA but want an
independent legislative assembly. The NA council has been renamed as NALA as it deserved. This is not a legislative assembly but is in a true term
has become a Nallah of Pakistani cities. The Nallah is not of the pure water flowing down from our land but a congestion of gutter and sewage which
has become stinking like Nallah Lai of the 1970s. The members of NALA cheat not only themselves but the whole nation by considering themselves
as equal to MNAs. Since 1970s, these councillors have always preferred their own interests on the interests of the people. Today a responsible citizen
of Pakistan understands the injustices done with the people of the region but for these councillors even the interest of a PWD engineer has more value
than that of the nation and the region. These councillors have always felt proud of meeting an SP or a DC and have betrayed the people and supported
the usurpers. They have never raised a voice for the rights of the masses and always preferred their own vested interests. This does not mean that I
have personal grudge with a few councillors but I am referring to all the members of the council as a whole who have kept our people in the dark.
These opportunist members of NALA are equally responsible, along with the Pakistani rulers, for keeping our people deprived of their basic human
and constitutional rights. I know that from today these NALA members will go two steps forward than the security agencies and their cohorts in
spreading propaganda against me. But I do not care and would continue to inform my people about the actual situation and hope that the people would
never be carried away by deception of the rulers like introduction of a package etc.

We appeal government of China to handover back our lands the part of Hunza, which had been given to it during British Empire before 1947 and the
portion of Shimshal Hunza given by Pakistan in 1963. China is urged not to help Pakistan's illegal and immoral occupation by constructing Railway
track throughout Balawaristan and not to construct the disputed Diamar Dam. We also appeal government of China for not occupy our land and
mountains by the pretext of mines lease of Yasen area and other places. It should be noted, that Pakistan has no legal authority to give any lease or to
make any agreement on behalf of the people of Balawaristan, because it's a disputed land and Pakistan has no legal authority. China is a super power
of Asia and it should not involve itself in the occupation process of Pakistan.

We demand that the government of Pakistan withdraw its troops and civilian officials from Gilgit-Baltistan in accordance with its promise, Retrieve the
land given to outsiders and allot it to the local owners. Our people do not need any NALA but an independent legislative assembly, we do not want the
continuation of chief commissioner in the name of chief and appellate courts, we need an independent supreme court. We do not want a Balochistan
type of identity but want an independent Balawaristan.
Long live GBDA
