The Baluch Hal is an online news platform committed to telling the untold story of Baluchistan, a region hit by a decade-long insurgency, widespread human rights abuses, religious radicalization, and an increasing presence of China. Originally launched in 2009, the Baluch Hal has been recognized by the BBC, Al-Jazeera, the Washington Post etc. as a success story of online journalism that reports on a conflict zone. However, we will be honest with you: A decade after our launch, we still struggle to generate resources to fund our platform, which has been like a virtual journalism school for so many young journalism students and aspiring writers and the go-to resources on Baluchistan. While your praise, likes, and retweets mean a lot to us, they don't necessarily help us meet our expenses. So many readers tell us that they want to learn more about Baluchistan but credible work requires resources. If you like our work and believe in it, please support our journalistic work.
