Hazara Democratic Party (HDP), Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), National Party (NP) and others strongly condemned the killings in Mastung and Quetta and demanded that the government step down as it had failed to protect the life and property of citizens. The final showdown looks on the cards as the recent meetings of JI leader Qazi Hussain Ahmed show that things will take a new turn.
Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), which has been fighting for the secession of province, gets logistic support from India, while another CIA and Indian-supported separatist group Jundollah (God’s soldiers) is also working against the cordial relationship of Pakistan with China and Iran. In the past few years, their militants kidnapped and killed many Chinese and Iranian nationals in Pakistan with the cooperation of foreign agents.
Collusion against Balochistan ??n’t be seen ?n isolation. The agents ?f CIA, RAW ?nd Mosssad ?r? well-penetrated ?n various NGOs ?nd human rights organisations wh??h ?r? being used f?r a malicious propaganda against Pakistan’s security forces. Concrete steps are required for balanced strategies to cope with international conspiracies. The president of Balochistan chapter of Pakistan People’s Party Senator Lashkari Raisani has condemned the Mastung carnage, terming it barbaric. He appealed to all political and religious parties to take a serious notice of the situation as things are slipping out of hands.
On the other hand, Chairman of Hazara Democratic Party Abdul Khaliq Hazara has alleged the government for protecting the target killers who are sabotaging peace and promoting sectarianism. “We are doing our utmost to provide relief to the downtrodden but such activities are halting our peace campaign. We knocked the doors of federal government but the leaders paid no heed to our miseries and hence we expect no justice. If we look into the September 20 Mastung incident, we see the same company twice carried the pilgrims. The driver is said to be not trained and professional. The owner of the coach escaped showing that he was involved in suspicious activities,” he said.
Meanwhile, Chief Justice of Balochistan High Court Qazi Faez Isa on Thursday took suo motu notice of Ganjidori incident. The chief justice took note of the incident following appeals from civil society members after reports on the incident were published in local and national media. The private transporters, who provide transportation to pilgrims from Quetta to Iran, have already been directed to get themselves registered with the Home Department. The law already exists at the federal level under which transporters must first inform the government if they provide transportation to pilgrims.”
Shia Muslims usually travel from Quetta to Iran through the private transport companies and mostly without any security cover. It is unfortunate that the killings have intensified. Therefore, the government is compelled to adopt strict security measures.
Some circles believe the time has come to wake up as Balochistan is in blood and this blood game must end, the sooner the better. Balochistan has become a killing field. A lot of time has since been wasted. Who is responsible for this indifference and apathy?
