Islamabad, Feb 2 (ANI): The highhanded criminal operations and the 'kill and dump' policy of the Pakistan Army have hardly left any space for a political solution in Balochistan now, an editorial has said.
The federation is definitely in trouble, a Daily Times editorial claimed, citing various examples of the past.
The military's 'kill and dump' policy in Balochistan has reportedly created havoc in the lives of the Baloch. The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) recently pointed out that "...the [Pakistan] military and its spy agencies have supra-constitutional authority to deal with the Baloch people, who are struggling for their constitutional rights of self-rule in the province".
The policy of eliminating members of the Baloch resistance movement, moderate nationalists, intellectuals and youth has led to more hatred and more alienation in the province. Now this policy is seemingly being extended to women and children, it said.
The editorial claims that the recent killing of Balochistan lawmaker Nawabzada Bakhtiar Khan Domki's wife and daughter in Karachi could not have been carried out by the tribes there, as this is completely against the Baloch culture.
This gives rise to a suspicion that the Pakistan intelligence agencies, which are allegedly busy harassing and assaulting the Baloch, could have been behind the attacks to make sure that Brahamdagh Bugti, whom they have failed to extradite from Switzerland, gets a chilling message, it said.
It seems that there is now a sinister plot to hunt the Baloch outside Balochistan too, the editorial said, citing the killing of Baloch activist Faisal Mengal in Karachi in December 2011. The recent death of two Baloch females along with their driver in Karachi also points to this new 'trend'. (ANI)
