Well played (na)Pak army!

The National Reconciliation Ordinance finally bore fruit for the Pakistani establishment, as the 'democratically' elected government imposed emergency in Baluchistan. Trust on people to demand for the army in Pakistan when the napak army's and CIA's illegitimate children, read Lashkar-e-Jhangvi kill innocent people in hundreds. Since killing a few here and a few there wasn't working for them, they had to come up with plan B. Kill so many at the same time, that people themselves ask for the father to interfere. And what best place to do so then Baluchistan. And who to target but the Shia, who have never been a laid back minority.

In Urdu this is 'aik teer se do shikaar'.

The cards were played well. This time the Pakistan People's Party government did not make the same mistake their pioneer made in 1970s when the Provincial Government in Baluchistan was toppled down and Governor's rule was imposed against the will of the people. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto made the mistake of declaring emergency without the consent of any group residing in Baluchistan, Asif Ali Zardari did so with consent from an ethnic minority, namely the Hazara community. The Shia Genocide issue has played well in favour of the central government and very much against the ethnic Baluch population, who will be further marginalized.

To hell with missing people, to hell with ethnic cleansing of Baluch. As usual, instead of punishing the real culprits who have been targeting the Shia community all over Pakistan, we have literally handed over the whole province to the perpetrators (directly or indirectly) of all these crimes, namely the Frontier Corps, loathsomely remembered as the FC brutes responsible for thousands of missing persons in Baluchistan.

The FC has got policing powers for at least the next two months. Nawab Zulfiqar Ali Magsi is still Governor Baluchistan, FC has been in Baluchistan for ages now, only difference is, there will be no Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani. So what has changed? How does the FC propose to change the situation for the Shia Hazara community? We can only wait to see whether they kill the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Jundullah militants or the Baluch nationalists.

Oh and lets not forget that Akhtar Mengal called top Hazara leaders in solidarity, while Baluchistan National Party (BNP) leaders participated in Quetta sit-in as per local media reports.

An excerpt from the Baluch Hal dated September 9, 2010, that incidentally cannot be viewed in Pakistan without proxy:
Senior Vice-President of the National Party(NP) Senator Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo has said that the proposed Frontier Corps (FC) action against Baloch people was meant to impose an emergency rule in Balochistan or impose the direct central rule of the federal government through a governor on the oil and gas rich Balochistan province.
