US-UK Supporting Baloch Militants
By Zaheerul Hassan
In 2010 and 2012, two articles, “Foreign Involvement in Pak Balochistan” and “US meddling in Balochistan Exposed” have been written by me. The articles then unveiled the US and her allies’ hidden involvements of supporting rebellions, aiming at creation of Greater Balochistan and increasing influence in northern lip of straits of Hormuz through which much of the world’s oil supply passes. Notably, the land of Balochistan is rich in God gifted natural resources with an estimated 19 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves and 6 trillion barrels of oil reserves. Then, I also exposed U S intentions of declaring Pakhtune region as Al-Qaida dominated areas when American commandos have raided Angoor Adda.
Actually, the projects like Gwadar Port, Pak-Iran Gas pipeline and Chinese interest of developing the region as future economic corridor are totally against Western and US sinister design of separation. In this connection US and her allies off and on keep on trying unrest while launching clandestine and Psychological operation to accomplish their unholy design. For instance on February 8, 2012, The United States (US) Congress Committee on Foreign Affairs while discussing situation of Balochistan has shown concern over security problem and killing of the people.
Earlier, on November 21, 2009 Balochistan International Conference was organized by the so called American Friends of Balochistan (AFB) at National Press club Washington DC, USA. Selig S Harrison (Dir Centre for International Policy), Andrew Evia, Wendy Johnson , Annie Wocenti, Hyrbyair Marri, Mehran Baloch, Ahmed Masti Khan , Munir Mengal, Air Armanda, Professor Neale Baloch Quadric (closed confident of Barmmadagh Bugti) were the speakers and participants of conference . The speakers made speeches against Pakistan and Iran. The conference declared Pakistan as an occupant country and also asked Islamabad to dismantle her nuclear arsenals. Reportedly, behind this conference CIA, MI-6 and RAW were the main play back actors.
In fact, deliberate US, Indian and UK interference in Pakistani Balochistan aimed at exploiting the issue while supporting Pakistani, Afghani and Iranian militants to speed up the movements of Independent Balochistan. In this regard, troika has started promoting anarchy by helping, sheltering and funding some of anti Pakistan elements. In this connection in 2010, Indian Deputy Foreign Minister met Baloch militants and who assured New Delhi full support in speeding up their struggle. At that time Munir Mengal also been guaranteed that 12-13 European countries will be able to openly recognized independent Balochistan Government. The Baloch leaders were paid US $ 25000/ dollars each after the meeting.
Moreover, in the first week of August 2011, US Ambassador Cameron Munter while talking to media stated that they have an eye on Pakistan particularly Balochistan since the province is strategically very important to U.S.
After 9/11, America, UK, Israel and India covertly have made an alliance to look after their strategic gains in Asia. In this connection, the intelligence agencies of U.S. alliance have also cultivated their agents under the garb of NGOs in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and China. These agents became active in gathering intelligence, creating instability, anarchy and terrorism in Pakistan and China.
Similarly, many NGOs and so called human rights organizations are being paid for raising Balochistan Issue according to CIA’s set agenda and time frame. On August 12, 2011 Mr. Rehman Malik, former Interior Minister of Pakistan while talking to the media , confirmed that foreign hands are involved in the unrest of Balochistan.
Therefore, UK and US made another try of to accomplish their agenda of separation of Balochistan when at the 23rd regular session of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s general debate in Geneva on 7 June, clearly supported militant Mehran Marri, Balochistan’s representative to the UN, who spoke against the recent elections and alleged that Pakistan was committing rights abuses in Balochistan. Notably, Marri, is the youngest son of Karachi-based anti Pakistan Nawab Khair Baksh Marri who burnt Pakistani flag and sent jail for seven years.
Thus, we can say that selecting the son of Khair Baksh Murri for representing Balochistan, indicate that US, UK and India can’t be sincere friend to us. They are only serious in the instability and breaking of Pakistan. They brought Mehran Marri on the forum as spokesperson of Balochistan in the presence of legitimate representative of Pakistan. Therefore, US, UK and UN human right commission has violated the violation UN charter while allowing Mehran Marri to spread venom against an independent, sovereign and democratic state. At this occasion, Pakistani delegate took strong stand and said, “We cannot allow the use of this forum for statements which highly impinge upon the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity of the sovereign states as enshrined in the United Nations Charter. We request you to expunge such remarks from the proceedings,” said the Pakistani delegate.
Both Cuba and China categorically supported Pakistan’s stance and condemned UK and US efforts of launching Mehran Murri. In this connection Cuban representative told the session that it was unacceptable for an NGO to try to attack the territorial integrity and independence of a sovereign state. He said that his country was not prepared to listen to such remarks. Similarly, the Chinese delegate supported Pakistani delegation point of view and expressed that his country support Pakistan and demands that this forum shouldn’t be used to “impinge upon the territorial integrity and freedom of a sovereign state”.
Islamabad should lodge protest against the hostile attitude of UK, US and India towards Pakistan for intervening in our internal matters. Allowing Mehran Marri to speak against electoral system and the government of Pakistan by two powerful countries do suspect that US and the UK have sympathies for Baloch nationalist factions for their own objectives of separation of Balochistan.
In fact, US and her allies in the opinion that gaining hold on this region and creating independent state in Balochistan Region will provide her remunerative strategically advantages like easy excess to Gulf through Gwadar Port, disintegration of lonely nuclear Islamic state, dominance over China, Russia, Persian Gulf and other Islamic countries.
Anyhow, Pakistani government should be mindful enough that US, UK and India have now openly providing support to the militants against Pakistan. To defeat anti Pakistan forces the only way out to take all patriotic Baloch lords on board and rush down for the speedy development of the largest province of Pakistan. The newly elected provincial instead of critiquing security agencies in the name of missing persons, should back them for restoring law and order put in right and eliminate foreign sponsored militancy. The political elite have to draw a line while making some comments about country’s security and intelligence agencies. They must understand that security agencies have only one aim i.e. defence of motherland. Pakistan Army has taken visible steps for the welfare of Baloch nation while constructing hospital, colleges, schools and increasing their share in the recruitments. The same should be once again communicated through electronic and print media for the consumption of general masses.
