Risky business?--Running a Baloch website: Dr. Arif Barakzai, a member of the BSO and a lecturer at Uppsala University in Sweden, died after 'falling' 11 floors from the balcony of his apartment on Jan 10, 2008. Dr. Barakzai ran a website devoted to Baloch culture: http://bizmkaar.com. It is unknown what if anything Norwegian authorities have determined about the circumstances of Dr. Barkazai's death. Munir Mengal was imprisoned in Pakistan for his relationship with the website balochvoice.com. Balach Marri ran balochvoice.com until his death in November 2007. In 2006 Reporters Without Borders condemned a decision by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to block four Baluch nationalist websites for carrying "misleading information." Others who have suffered the long reach of Pakistan agencies include: Samiullah Baloch, a social activist and President of Balochistan Institute For Future Development, who was kidnapped along with his brother Obaidullah Ali in 2006. Both were subsequently released following the intervention of Amnesty International (Samiullah ran the website www.bifd.net). Senator Sanaullah Baloch, brother of the kidnappees and a prominent politician of Balochistan who now lives in exile in Europe, suffered an attempt on his life in London in 2006. Sanaullah Baloch's website is: http://www.sanabaloch.page.tl/Home.htm.
