The Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) has announced to organise protests and awareness programs in Balochistan and abroad on 28 May 2018 to protest against Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and their effects on the people of Raaskoh area of district Chaghai Balochistan.
Like every year, this year also the FBM, a pro-freedom party headed by Hyrbyair Marri, will organise events in different countries of the world to give awareness about the effects of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons on people of district Chaghai and rest of Balochistan.
In its statement to the media that 20 years ago Pakistan tested its dirty nuke in Balochistan’s Chaghai hills on May 28, 1998, contaminating the Baloch land forever.
‘The people of the region continue to suffer from different diseases including cancer, skin diseases as a result of the tests,’ the FBM statement added.
Since the blast in 1998, international experts have not been allowed to visit the region to examine the effects of the radioactivity in the area.
The FBM said, “Pakistan’s nuclear weapons not only pose a threat to Baloch, Pashtun, and Sindhis, but Pakistan also breached the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty by passing nuclear information Iran.
“Pakistani scientist Dr Qadir Khan has publicly admitted passing nuclear secret information to other states.”
The FBM said Iran today poses a threat to the world because of the information that Pakistan provided to it.
The FBM said that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons could, at any time, fall in the hands of religious extremists and proxies of the Pakistan Army as the country was an irresponsible state and also, they could do anything for money.
The FBM has requested all freedom loving people, human rights activists, and anti-nuclear weapons groups to join its protests around the world to raise voice against Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and demand to denuclearise Pakistan.
