Formation of Special Battalion for Protection of Economic Corridor…

                Deal for construction of trade route from Sinkiang to Gwadar was signed which will open new horizons of development in Pakistan as well as providing easy access to warm waters for China. This trade route was not only opposed by USA and other regional powers but also became a reason for foreign funded terrorism in Baluchistan, KPK and tribal areas. Why did China herself offered to construct Gwadar port and why did General (R) Musharraf accepted offer given by Chinese ambassador in USA in 2002; this is a long story which has been already discussed by me in detail in 2009 along with the map of proposed trade route. This is a bitter reality that with the start of construction work over Coastal highway and Gwadar port by Chinese companies, local newspapers were filled with opposing news reports and within no time they were covered by private TV Channels as well. Baloch sub-nationalists termed this project as an attempt to suppress Baloch rights and announced to oppose it at all levels.

                In 2003, assassinations of Chinese engineers working over Coastal highway and other projects were started. Chinese workers were kidnapped and murdered afterwards. When law enforcement agencies started to address the issue; a specific media group portrayed terrorists involved in attacks over Chinese as freedom fighters and tried to mutilate the situation by comparing the situation in East Pakistan before 1971. The construction of Gwadar port was to completed in 2005, but Chinese wanted to complete the project earlier while terrorists of Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) were working hard to stop the project. During this phase-II of road was started by Chinese as well, this road was planned to join Peshawar with under construction tunnel at Kohat. In order to stop phase-II, Abullah Mehsood was launched in Malakand, Dir and Chitral from where this road had to pass in the name of Imposition of Islam and announced Jihad against Pakistan army. In order to camouflage foreign funded terrorists launched under the garb of Islam, Western Media and governments started blaming past policies of military governments regarding Afghanistan and termed militancy in these areas as a reaction of these policies. Not only this, traitors were hired and propaganda campaign against Army was started within the country as well blaming Pakistan army for the problems of Pakistan. India laid a network of Indian consulates (launching pads of terrorists into Pakistan) in Afghanistan along with Pakistani border with the nexus of Northern Alliance. Neither India nor USA was ready to accept the construction of Gwadar port. Access of China to Gwadar was not acceptable to India from defense point of view, moreover India takes every plan of economic development (including Kalabagh Dam) as a strong Pakistan will have increased defense which will adversely affect Indian presence in Indian Held Kashmir. USA is aware that access of China to Gwadar will not only provide economical benefits to China but also enable China to challenge American interests all over the world. In this way a nexus between USA and India was established which was later on joined by few Muslim countries as well who took Gwadar port a threat to their trade interests.

                Now the situation was that in Balochistan terrorists were active in the garb of separatists while in FATA and KPK the terrorism was being done in the name of Islam. Although apparently the goals of these terrorists in both parts of the country were different but targets of their foreign funders providing them training, weapons, manpower, professional guidance and money were same i.e. 1) to keep away China from Gwadar, 2) defame Pakistan army and 3) portray Pakistani nuclear installations as unsafe in order to take control of it. Although our army and intelligence agencies were aware of the conspiracy and were sacrificing their lives for motherland as they loved their country more than their reputation but a specific group of so called intellectuals were giving it a different color.

                The goal was just to criticize and defame Pakistan army in order to make army disputed in the hearts of the public. Now when NATO forces have been withdrawn after completing their so called operation in Afghanistan, big chunk of US forces is also leaving Afghanistan and tribal areas have been cleared off terrorists through army operation; in such a situation visit of Chinese President and signing of trade route deal has raised alarm for those powers who were busy in conspiracies to create hurdles in this trade route since 2002; how is it possible that these powers will now give up their conspiracies? Murder of 20 laborers in Balochistan is also part of this series which has not been condemned by so called flag bearers of Human Rights. The route from Chinese province Sinkiang to Gwadar is quite long; most of the road passes through deserted mountains of Balochistan where Chinese workers might be targeted by terrorists. To provide protection to our Chinese guests is our duty. In order to meet this need of the hour, Pak Army and govt. has established a Special Security Division consisting of Army Battalion and Civil armed forces which makes it clear that Pakistan wants quick completion of the project…

He Once Again Hoisted Pakistani Flag Upon Release After Five Years Imprisonment???

Posted by Truth By Khalid Baig on Monday, April 27, 2015

One can hardly find an example of sacrifice for freedom to get one’s country freed from the enemy which was shown by Mussarat Alam, a Kashmiri Leader. Now this was a mere coincidence or zeal of freedom movement that one day before Mussarat Alam’s release from Indian prison after five and half years imprisonment under the allegations of protesting against Indian army, protests were going on in whole Kashmir against the murder of two innocent Kashmiri youngsters belonging to Western Town Tiral of Indian Held Kashmir. For Mussarat Alam, the time has stopped when he went to jail Kashmir was protesting and when he got released Kashmir was protesting as well. Late night he got released and in the morning he once again joined protest rally at the Central Chowk of Srinagar. Protestors were shocked to see Mussarat Alam once again among them.
                Mussarat Alam hoisted Pakistani flag in the protest gathering and started chanting slogans in the favor of Pakistan, against India. The Pakistani flag fueled the protestors and everyone started chanting slogans of Pakistan e.g.
“Teri Jan Meri Jan, Pakistan, Pakistan; Pakistan Ka Kiya Paigham, Kashmir Bnega Pakistan; Tera Mera Kiya Arman, Pakistan, Pakistan”
Syed Ali Shah Gillani was present on the stage. He started his address by addressing Mufti Saeed, puppet Chief Minister and demanded him to declare that Kashmir is not integral part of India as Kashmir is internationally recognized disputed land. He said that people like Mufti Saeed are responsible for the slavery of Indian Held Kashmir. Kashmiris have ideological and religious relations with Pakistan. He said that Modi Doctrine of establishing separate villages of Pandits will have destructive consequences for the region and announced to resist against it.
                The reports of hoisting Pakistani flag in Srinagar were not less than a lightening over New Delhi and Indian Media. Indian newscasters and anchorpersons forgot that they are being viewed beyond India as well in their anger. Kashmiri freedom leaders were declared as traitors of Indian state. In the anger Indian media ignored ethics and started blaming puppet govt. of Indian Held Kashmir as well as Modi establishment that in the Indian state, flags of enemy are being hoisted. Indian Media demanded arrest of Mussarat Alam for abetting public of Indian Held Kashmir against India. When Indian media targeted Modi, Modi establishment ordered puppet Chief Minister to show the state terrorism as demanded by the voters of BJP. Indian Interior Minister also issued statement over the TV that he cannot tolerate slogans in favour of Pakistan on the Indian land…
                While claiming Indian Held Kashmir as Indian land, Indian media and rulers forgot that due to the international pressure when India has shown interest in dialogue with Pakistan, she has also accepted to give vital importance to Kashmir dispute. India is aware that she is holding Kashmir by force since 1947. As soon as Indian state terrorist forces entered into Kashmir, Kashmiris started resistance in which more than five hundred thousand Kashmiris have lost their lives. So called developed and torch bearers of Human Rights, Western Countries are silent over Indian war crimes and state terrorism due to their economical interests but what about human rights organizations and UNO that was established to stop violation of human rights and genocide? The silence of international community is being taken as a license to kill Kashmiris by India. But India is well aware that crushing Freedom movement aside she had failed just to suppress it. After Mussarat Alam’s hoisting of Pakistani flag, India is at the horns of dilemma that what torture to use next on Kashmiri public. Syed Ali Shah Gillani has been put on house arrest while Mussarat Alam has been once again handed over to Indian Police for 3rd degree torture. But will these arrests, torture and murders will be successful to stop Kashmiri public from protesting against India, chanting slogans against India, burning Indian flag or hoisting Pakistani flag? Indian forces and rulers are well aware that Kashmiris are demanding the right to choose their own destiny, a right that was itself accepted by India when she begged in UNO in 1948. If UNO had not interfered at that time Kashmir would have attained its destiny in 1948 and more than 500,000 Kashmiris would not have lost their lives. Although India denied this basic right of Kashmiris but despite of deployment of 700,000 personnel of Indian army, she is unable to get out of the fear that Kashmiris will not chose to be part of India.
                What else could be the extreme Indian defeat over moral level that three Kashmiris were killed in three days as Indians got furious over hoisting of Pakistani flag? Kashmiris are being threatened everywhere, universities have stopped scholarships to Kashmiri students, business activities have been suspended and Kashmir is protesting against Indian State Terrorism. Keeping in view the serious situation in Indian Held Kashmir, Congress has demanded for mid-term elections and blamed BJP for the situation in Indian Held Kashmir. Congress had forgotten that genocide of Kashmiris was started by it which has been furthered by BJP. India should accept this bitter reality that India may buy the conscious of Human Rights Organizations but cannot buy the blood of Kashmiris and Kashmiri are not ready to live with India anymore. One may look at the social media; within India people are impressed by Mussarat Alam and this can be forecasted that time for completion of Pakistan i.e. Kashmir becoming a part of Pakistan has come…

Murder of Laborers in Baluchistan is Attack over Pakistan!!!

                Anti Pakistan forces had targeted Baluchistan since long ago. Sabotaging passengers trains, attacking state especially defense installations, blasting natural gas transmission lines in order to create trouble for public as well as economy of the country. Some forces outside Pakistan attempt to prove all these terrorist activities as activities of separatists fighting for the independence of the Baluchistan and elements involved in such activities are emotional elements of Baloch youth who have been forced to take up arms for quickly achieving their aim (separation).
                The question arises whether Baluchistan is being ignored and denied of its rights or there are some other elements active behind the scene that are making propaganda to disguise terrorists as separatists in order to misguide international community. In order to understand this phenomenon I would like to quote few lines from the book of Syed Abdul Mali, “The Twin Era of Pakistan: Democracy and Dictatorship” published in 1992 from New York in which writer has attempted to draw the canvass of Independent Baluchistan in 2006;
“Who would have believed that Baluchistan, once the least-populated and poorest province of unified Pakistan, would become independent and the richest oil-producing country after Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. From Pasni to Gwadar is a duty free international port, as Hong Kong in the Far East. It has become the busiest business and trading   centre in the near Middle East. Everywhere you see tall buildings touching the sky and many more are being built. It has become a centre of learning as well. Big universities and colleges are going up. Quetta university is built entirely on the American standard. The vice-chancellor of the university is an American born Balochi scholar. The Dean of the faculty of science is a British scientist who is a noble prize winner”

In this book of more than 400 pages like other books consisting of anti-Pakistan propaganda writer had attempted to blame Punjab, Punjabi Bureaucracy and  Punjabi army and the example of Eastern Pakistan was quoted as well that Punjab forced Bengalis to get separated from Pakistan. When the book was written there was no armed militant group in Baluchistan then why writer did wrote such a book of fiction while he has expertise in Accounts or Economics. After reading the book one understands that why writer has concluded after comparing democracy and dictatorship in Pakistan in the form of separation of Baluchistan. Is not this a part of the chain of conspiracies to weaken Pakistan which are being faced not only by people of Baluchistan but by all Pakistanis in the form of terrorism? The only difference is that in one place Pakistanis are being killed in the name of imposition of Islam, on the other in the name of Sectarian disputes in the form of suicide bomb blasts, being targeted after checking identity documents, being killed by sabotage of trains etc. no matter what the target are only Pakistanis and the real target of killers is Pakistan.
                One may consider the murder of 20 Laborers in Turbat, all those who were killed by these terrorists belonged to poor families who were forced to work hard away from their homes in order to make the both ends meet. In such a situation one feels pity over those elements who try to hide and support these terrorists by naming them as “Angry Baloch”; moreover, this also negates the propaganda that only Baluchistan has been left undeveloped; if this is so then laborers from Sind and Punjab would not have been working in Turbat, they might have earned enough from their own districts of Punjab and Sind. This shows that it is not the Federation that is responsible for the under development but the exploitative system that has taken whole country into its clutches. Another point of importance is that those who were murdered by terrorists belonged to Baloch race. As long as these militants are concerned they are not “Angry Baloch” but terrorists.
                The killing of 13 murderers responsible for murder of laborers just in 24 hours, shows that now terrorists playing with the blood of the innocent Pakistanis will have no hideout in Pakistan. Terrorists and their foreign perpetrators should learn from the short time of search and hunt down of terrorists that Pakistan is neither ready to bear wounds nor external conspiracies will be tolerated anymore.
                Although in the past our rulers have been reluctant to point out the supporters of terrorists; due to the trade ties or other interests’ international community also did not raise the voice in the way it was required. On 15th April in the way General Raheel Sharif visited Quetta, took briefing of search operation against terrorists and gave warning to anti-Pakistan elements this is the voice of the nation. This is the first time that Army Chief has directly addressed the anti-Pakistan elements attacking integrity of Pakistan and warned them to stop their activities…
