Namaste. Thank you for taking the time to know more about me.

Ahmar Mustikhan is a senior Baloch journalist, TV commentator and analyst who has worked in newsrooms in Dawn newspaper and the News International in Pakistan, in the Khaleej Times in United Arab Emirates and the Shreveport Times, The News-Star, St. Mary’s Today and the Gazette newspaper in the United States. He now contributes to the blog Balochistan Insight of the Times of India, has his own niche blog named Mustikhan’s Musings, focusing on Balochistan, and also freelances for other publications. In the past he contributed to a blog named Tikkun Olam for the Jerusalem Post.

Mustikhan also founded the American Friends of Balochistan, which is a non-profit organization, aimed at creating awareness about the ongoing human rights situation in Balochistan. Towards that end he has organized conferences and press talks in Washington DC and Geneva, Switzerland, which were addressed by key think-tank scholars, intellectuals and Baloch public figures.

He came to the US on a fellowship of the Society for Environmental Journalism at the Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich., and also got a fellowship from the Freedom Forum Diversity Institute at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn. He also got a scholarship for the English for Heritage Language Speakers at the Georgetown University.
Mustikhan belongs to an old Baloch family of Karachi and Rangoon and his family home Mustikhan Lodge in Karachi was the center of Baloch nationalist politics. It was here that the Baloch dignitaries of Sindh unanimously voted for a free Balochistan prior to the 1947 partition of India. His late uncle was named the first ambassador of Kalat state to Balochistan and remained on that position until the controversial accession of Balochistan to Pakistan, seven and half months later in March 1948.
Mustikhan’s advocacy for Balochistan rights has endeared him to a huge section of the Baloch and Indian population. He is also proud to be the first openly gay Baloch among more than 30 million Baloch in Balochistan and the Baloch diaspora. He can be reached on twitter @mustikhan or email [email protected] or cell 301-957-0008.
