Recently, I visited some other cities of Pakistan where I had to face a number of problems. I had to say,” I am a Baloch but not a terrorist.” It is strange to say the statement in your own country and to prove that we, Baloch people are not terrorists. 

When I suffered this kind of treatment from my own countrymen, I do remembered the dialogue of SRK “My name is Khan, I am not a terrorist.” The movie ‘My name is khan’ is a 2010 Indian drama film which was directed by Karan Johar and produced by Hiroo Johar and Gauri Khan and stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in lead roles. The film was based on American Muslim whose life is disrupted after the September 11 attacks on the twin towers in New York City. Mark goes to cover the war in Afghanistan and dies there, so, the situation made the American Muslim compel to repeat the sentence “My name is Khan, but I am not the terrorist.” Similar condition is going on in Pakistan which compels Baloch to repeat the dialogue “My name is Baloch, but I am not the terrorist.” 

It is proved by the social management department how strange Baloch nation is for Pakistan. They are a part of Pakistan but not the full rights to live a life as Pakistani. It would be a hard time for a Baloch to come out from their home to visit out of the Balochistan peacefully. We are alien for Pakistan and are be treated as terrorist not as brothers. 

It is requested that Baloch nation should enjoy the same status as others. Baloch nation do not see it as a problem to present themselves as Pakistani, then what the problem is with Pakistan government to accept Baloch as Pakistani. Unfortunately, Baloch has got fake state in Pakistan but not fully authorize to live accordingly.
