Role of Pakistan Army in the Development of Balochistan..!

Pak army busy in arming Baloch youth with Education and Skill
                After the elements involved in illicit activities joined American Friends of Balochistan (AFB) organization established through the nexus between Baloch insurgents in USA and pro-Indian Congress Lobby and luring Baloch youth into homosexuality by few NGOs working in Balochistan linked with AFB, members of organizations like The Baloch Society of North America (BSO-NA) and Baloch Council of North America (BCNA) working for rights of Baloch people announced to start campaign against conspiracies to separate Balochistan from Pakistan with the pledge to defend Pakistan from external conspiracies. Although both organizations were established during 2003-04 as a nexus between CIA and RAW apparently for the rights of deprived people of Balochistan. Members of these organizations were those Baloch who despite of achieving higher education were unable to secure their future due to feudal system in Balochistan, thus migrated to USA and other European countries and earned fame due to their untiring struggle. These Baloch not only were entrapped by the RAW in these organizations for procuring rights of Baloch people but also collected funds for freedom of Balochistan out of which Dr. Wahid Baloch was on top of the list.

               However, now they have realized that they have been deceived; the goal of the organizations established in the name of rights of under-developed Balochistan was not to develop it but to break apart Pakistan; after realizing this, Baloch in foreign countries left membership of BSO-NA and BCNA. But Dr. Wahid Baloch went a step farther and announced to dissolve these organizations saying that they cannot be part of game played in the name of rights of Baloch public. In the previous post I have already written that after disclosure of reality of a Pakistani media group and propaganda by it over Balochistan, not only within Pakistan but the restlessness and chaos among Pakistanis living abroad have come to an end. Of course this is a big defeat of anti-Pakistan forces and their second defeat is the trust of Baloch living abroad, over Pakistan. But this does not mean that all the problems of Baloch people have been resolved or the life standard of general public in Balochistan have been improved. As long as there is feudal system in the biggest province of Pakistan by land and smallest province of Pakistan by population i.e. Balochistan, the problems of general public cannot be solved. Because those feudal lords that are habitual of keeping Baloch public as slaves before independence of Pakistan, who have even chained thoughts of their subjects, who do not allow schools, who do not allow construction of roads because if these facilities are provided to Baloch public then they will deny their slavery. Why would Baloch feudal lords like that revolution is brought into Balochistan empowering public to decide their fate. Army’s determination for development of Balochistan indifferent to elite or public is the basic cause behind the conflict between army and Baloch feudal lords chanting the slogan of separation from Pakistan. Baloch feudal lords are aware of this fact that time cannot be reversed and once the weapon of shedding crocodile’s tears over the under development of Balochistan is taken from them, the foreign agencies funding their luxurious life in Europe would stop funding them; the dollars they receive for terrorism, sabotage of trains in Balochistan etc. would be stopped as well.

               Despite of all the hurdles and conflicts Pak-army continued the mission to educate Baloch public; not only this, special relaxations were given to Baloch youngsters for induction in Pak-army. According to the calculations from 2005 to 2012 approximately 24073 Baloch youngsters were inducted in Pak-army. The special relaxation for education standard was given to Baloch people by lowering the merit from secondary school education to middle, by lowering the height from 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 4 inches, by lowering education for induction as officer from C grade FA/FSc to D grade FA/FSc, Baloch youth was motivated for induction in Pak Army. 3600 extra posts were created in Southern Command of Pak Army to accommodate these Baloch soldiers.

               Pak army does not limit itself to education only in Balochistan but different technical courses were started as well so that Baloch people can earn respectful livelihood. In this regard with the cooperation of Vocational and Technical Education Commission (NAVTEC) different courses of Welding, Carpenter, Electrician, Machine Operators, Motor Mechanics, Computer Operators and Tailoring were started. First institute Balochistan Institute of Technical Education (BITE) was established at Quetta in 2007 under the supervision of Pak army. 4480 Baloch have been imparted with skilled education so far and inducted in armed forces as well in order to fulfill the demand for skilled workers. Keeping in view the response from youth, BITE has been expanded to various districts of Balochistan. Currently more than 3600 students are under training in BITE institutes.
Baloch Insurgents
               Second institute Gwadar Institute of Technology (GITE) was established in April 2011, so that educated youth can be imparted with the Diploma Asociate Engineering; initial two courses Disciplines of Industrial Electronics and Food Preservation Processing had been started, so far 90 students have completed their education. These two courses have been started keeping in view the future demand of Gwadar port for skilled manpower so that local population can be given opportunity for improved livelihood. Moreover, in Quetta, Khuzdar, Sibbi, Sui and adjacent areas various vocational institutes have been established for training to women so that they can play their role in the development of motherland as well as empowering them economically and socially. So far 366 women have been trained. Women trained in these institutes belong to poor families; those students who have procured higher positions in training have been offered jobs in these institutes in order to motivate other women.

               Like education provision of health facilities to all segments of society is also duty of state but in Balochistan just like education, health sector has been ignored as well. Due to this underdevelopment if people succeed in reaching some big city for medical treatment; they are unable to pay the bill for treatment and return uncured. Keeping in view these problems of the Baloch public, Pak Army has taken two steps; (1) established Free Medical Camps and (2) establishment of Quetta Institute of Medical Sciences. This institute was established in August 2011, it has special quota for students from underdeveloped and remote areas so that these trained people can provide basic medical facilities in their areas and first aid as well. In addition to this; medical camps are established in remote areas every three days in a month where millions of people have been treated free of cost for last three years. Patients having complexities are referred to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) for treatment as well as surgery.
These Weapons of Baloch Terrorists Raise Many Questions
               Besides free medicine and treatment CMH Quetta also provides free transport to patients which are paid out of the fund for martyrs or soldiers. CMH Quetta is also providing free treatment to 200 people. These are the facilities that have been provided to Baloch public but our media had failed to highlight these services of Pakistan Army. However, despite of biased attitude of media Pak Army is leaving no stone unturned to facilitate Baloch public in education and health sector and realizing them that we are ONE, our lives are only for Pakistan and Pakistan is our only identity…

American-Indian Nexus to Fuel Terrorism in Balochistan..!

Baloch Terrorist armed with Indian Weapons
               Few months ago it seemed that the worst violation of human rights in the whole world is being done only in Balochistan by Pakistan Armed Forces; where in spite of democracy and elected govt. Pakistan Army was in power and controlling the province. Pakistan army had denied basic rights to Baloch people and controlling the resources of Balochistan; whenever Baloch raise their voice for their rights, life is made hard on them. Protestors are either abducted to become missing persons or their corpses are found in deserted areas. The propaganda regarding violations of human rights against Pakistan Army was planned in such a well-coordinated manner; that Pakistani soldiers themselves were forced to think, perhaps their colleagues were committing atrocities in Balochistan. Sometimes reports on international were telecasted regarding Baloch people struggling for their rights but the source of information was always Pakistani media because base of propaganda over Balochistan was within the Pakistan.
Meeting of Baloch Terrorists Somewhere in Afghanistan
                This was the result of the propaganda from within Pakistan that Balochistan became a flashpoint regarding violations of human rights on international level. Three members of US Congress not only presented the bill for American intervention in Balochistan but also procured the required votes, however, US govt. had to reject the bill on the ground realities that such an adventure had created difficulties for American troops trapped in Afghanistan and waiting for withdrawal. Moreover, international scenario was not in favor of opening another Pandora Box by USA. However, straight forward clash of a media group (base of propaganda) changed the whole scenario regarding Balochistan. Either this was the over confidence of anchorpersons and owners of this media group or their foreign master minds failed to realize the consequences of such an adventure or wrong time was selected for attack over country’s only defense line i.e. Pak Army; whatever were the reasons the bitter reality is that after defeat in attack over Pak Army and ISI they also failed in Balochistan.

               This bitter reality cannot be denied that with the defeat of this specific media group the propaganda guns over Balochistan also got silenced. Few months back there were reports on the media over missing persons; courts were threatening to handcuff and register cases against Intelligence officers for release of these missing persons. Indian agents in Balochistan, few feudal lords on self-exile were portrayed as freedom fighters; special airtime was given to them for propaganda against Pakistan. Pak Army was blamed as responsible for underdevelopment in Balochistan and not only national army but Pakistan was insulted by terming Pak army as Punjabi Army. Terrorists activities of foreign funded terrorists by rocket attacks over buses, target killing and sabotage of trains by remote control bomb blasts were presented in such a manner that in spite of sympathy for those innocents who became target  of terrorist activities, terrorists were painted as freedom fighters fighting for the rights of these innocents against Pak Army. All this propaganda has suddenly died away. It seems there was no issue of Balochistan at all.

               But this assumption that there was no Balochistan issue or will not be is not true. Those international powers that fueled the terrorism in Balochistan under the garb of rights of Baloch people by giving weapons and funds to few Baloch Feudal lords, will not sit back. Only propaganda has been ended not the plans of the enemy. The detail of these plans of international powers has been opened openly discussed in a program of RT TV Channel titled, “Terror Hotbed”. In this report it has been discussed in detail that what are the interests of India, USA, Iran and Israel? Why Balochistan has become playground for world intelligence agencies; which are involved in target killing, abduction for ransom, terrorism and sectarian killings. USA is afraid growing Chinese economy, after economic defeat from China, US wants to stop Chinese access to Gwadar. India considers Pak-China economic cooperation a threat to her imperialistic plans and Pak-China trade route as an attempt by China to besiege India. Iran is also unhappy over development of Gwadar port. In this way many countries having differences to each other had got united on one point that is the failure Gwadar port as an international port and denying access to China and are fueling terrorism in Balochistan. The geographical importance of Balochistan aside; world powers also have eyes on the mineral resources of the province for which these powers are busy in conspiracies since long ago.

               Establishment of American Friends of Balochistan (AFB) is also chain of these conspiracies; Laura Demer, member of American Congress and member of said AFB had declared it as inevitable for separation of Balochistan from Pakistan. The Baloch leader of AFB who is busy in brain washing Pakistani youth from America is also minting money by raising the demand for separation of Balochistan. He is involved in publishing fabricated stories in infamous US newspapers written by few of his paid journalists in Balochistan over atrocities committed in Balochistan by Pak Army in order to persuade international community that Baloch are not ready to live with Pakistan at any cost. Indian links and funding to AFB members can be imagined from this that after victory of BJP and Narendra Modi in elections in India, AFB celebrated his victory in the West and Masti Khan of AFB wrote a letter to Narendra Modi to take practical steps to separate Balochistan from Pakistan. After publishing of this letter in Western Print Media neither Pakistani Foreign Ministry nor Pakistani media protested over this letter against Pakistan. In fact this letter of Masti Khan is attack over Pakistan’s integrity which not only warrants diplomatic but public protest but our media has uncountable ways to keep public busy in domestic problems. This is the reason that when Balochistan issue had become an international issue by the blessings of Geo TV propaganda; other channels in spite of telling the nation truth became part of propaganda in order to procure their channel’s rating. Otherwise the report that has been presented by RT TV Channel could have been presented more effectively by local media and journalists.

Who is Supplying Such Costly Weapons to Baloch Terrorists???

               However, there is still a chance; we should show all the steps that had been taken to resolve the issues of Baloch people. We should make it clear to USA that the steps taken by her for supremacy of India in the region in order to protect American interests and burning Balochistan in terrorism to stop Chinese access to Gwadar cannot stop Pak-China trade route, however, integrity and the stability of the whole region would be at stake as a result of American gameplay, which would eventually hurt already sinking American economy and Europe would not be exception to this as well…

Poverty One of the Causes behind Terrorism; Should be Checked to Counter Terrorism..!

Greatest Peaceful Evacuation of Current Era
               The start of Zarb-e-Azb had made it clear that Army has decided to uproot the monster of terrorism and will not rest until the end of terrorism in motherland. Of course army exercised extreme patience despite of uncountable loss of lives hoping that militants challenging the writ of the state might repent but terrorists considered this either as weakness or cowardice of Pakistan armed forces; they became threat to the geographical boundaries of the motherland. But here the question arises that only army is responsible for the geographical and ideological boundaries of motherland? Army can crush the terrorists but govt. is responsible to curb the reasons behind the terrorism. If rulers are of the view that operation would end the terrorism, peace that would be established as a result of the armed forces action would last forever without taking care of the reasons for the terrorism; might be a sweet dream but not a reality.

               Leaving lawlessness and terrorism aside in which role of external powers is not a secret anymore; but what should be said about economic and social injustice that has become a cancer for the society? No department is secure from this evil. State is the name of the collection of the different classes divided in rich, middle and lower class. That is why in today’s democratic system state is made responsible for the education, health and safety of its subjects. Under this system public is considered the source of power; provision of justice, security and employment, is responsibility of state. But in Pakistan standards of justice are different for rich and poor. Rich get the justice without asking for it but poor fear asking for justice as the might have to pay the fee which they cannot afford. If one considers the education sector; in the same way, country has separate curriculum, separate schools and separate education for poor and rich. Education of rich ensures secure future and employment. Moreover, security is only for the rich. Despite of fortressed residents; LEAs i.e. Police etc. are to protect wealthy and elite class only. Whether it is dictatorship or democracy poor are getting poorer and rich are getting shortage of coffers to keep their wealth.
The Area of Miran Shah that Once Controlled by Terrorists now Controlled by Pak Army
               When elected representatives will deny basic rights to public after coming into power then how one can dream of peace or stability in the country? In Pakistan on one hand we have so-called development while on the other hand monster of inflation, unemployment, bribery and corruption has been added into the national life as a basic part. This has resulted into the production of such a class of professional beggars devoid of self-respect in the society which has either overpowered the law or due to the indifference to the national problems by those responsible for enforcement of law they are not ready to accept the bitter reality that criminals and terrorists are also hiding among these beggars. With the start of the Holy month of Ramadan a flood of professional beggars is observed; people pay alms and Zakat in this holy month but due to these professional beggars poor who really deserve financial support are ignored as they do not beg due to their self-respect. Professional beggars exploit the sentiments of people in this holy month at Bazaars, shopping malls or outside departmental stores. Especially women shopping along with children become target of these professional beggars.
Terrorists Fleeing Operation Area under the Garb of Women
               Sometimes these beggars point out women to the purse snatchers and involved in street crimes. These street crimes like purse snatching, mobile snatching etc. neither are reported nor Policemen deployed on security duty in markets get pay any heed as well. In most of the cases those who report these street crimes have to bear the traditional criticism of Police. Moreover, involvement of beggars in armed robberies or burglaries in residential areas has been reported as well in which these beggars perform “Recce” and provide information / point out those houses where women are alone in the houses to robbers. All this aside; this matter is of grave importance that terrorists have planned to target public in the disguise of beggars; a practical demonstration had been already witnessed on 04 June 2014 at the Tarnol Railway Crossing Rawalpindi in which a suicide bomber disguised as beggar targeted two officers of a secret agency, Lt Col Zahir and Arshad.

               In the way the hideouts of terrorists are being destroyed by Pakistan army in North Waziristan it is evident that terrorists are unable to find any hide out at least in North Waziristan or Tribal areas but the weapon manufacturing units and weapons recovered from North Waziristan make it clear that supply system of terrorists is well organized. Due to this supply system terrorists continued their terrorist activities in Pakistan for last on decade. Of course this supply system and latest weapons would have cost billions. Such a big amount can be only provided by some country having big and stable economy. So such an enemy of Pakistan who invested billions for terrorism in Pakistan would stop her conspiracies or war against Pakistan after destruction of central hideouts in Tribal Areas? Of course, enemies of Pakistan would have planned substitutes as well; not only govt. or security agencies but every Pakistani will have to keep his eyes open in order to tackle this situation.
Terrorist Attack under the Garb of Beggars Cannot be Ruled Out!!!
               The links of a media group with foreign powers and the situation that was created by this media group it was being perceived that Pakistan is the center of the problems, however, after temporary ban over this media group situation has improved to some extent. Few months ago it was being perceived that as the result of the propaganda of this media group regarding violations of human rights in Baluchistan; UN peace keeping army will invade Pakistan any time. In this way after defeat in the conspiracy regarding Baluchistan; the launch of operation against terrorists in Northern Waziristan is another blow to the foreign powers sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. Of course; enemy would start new fronts of terrorism for their damn goals. A glimpse of enemy substitute plans can be observed from an accidental bomb blast on 04 July 2014. Two persons involved in the bomb blast belonged to a nationalist Sindhi party. God knows where these two persons were transferring explosive material or Sindhi nationalists are also playing in the hands of terrorists and foreign powers? Although this question can be answered by security experts; however, this accidental bomb blast had further strengthened the concerns that after defeat in Baluchistan and Operation Zarb-e-Azb terrorists and their foreign funders are planning substitutes. International media has the reports that terrorists were trying to fly away disguised as veiled women and 700 terrorists have shaved their beards in order to disguise as general public. Where are these terrorists now? Their search is important as well as keeping an eye over beggars is also inevitable in order to avoid any untoward incident on this Eid-ul-Fitr. Whether this is to be done by Police or some other force; controlling and ending beggary is the need of the hour to improve law and order situation. Besides concerns of terrorism; removal of professional beggars is the duty of the elected govt.

               Such operation clean sweep of beggars is necessary for stability of motherland as well as protection of public. But if Police starts exploiting this effort to curb beggary to fulfill their pockets as they do on checking points with public then this tradition of Police would pave way to some big tragedy. Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has made it clear in his address to soldiers on the front that army would chase terrorists in the whole country. But in the presence of social injustice in the society perhaps all the efforts of army to curb terrorism might be fruitless or may not achieve the selected goals…
