Pak Army Responsible For Extremism In The Region
Several demonstrators protested against the Pakistan Army outside the Karachi Press Club, alleging that the military establishment was responsible for extremism in the region.
In a video posted by Jeay Sindh Muttahida Mahaz (JSMM) activist Zahid Sindhi on Twitter on Sunday, people can be seen shouting slogans – “Yeh jo dehshad gardi hai, iske peechhey wardi hai” (Men in uniform are responsible for the terror), “yeh jo mullah gardi hai, iske peechhey wardi hai” (the Army is responsible for extremism).
A trailer was released by Roshaan Khattak for his upcoming documentary film on Balochistan. The title of the film is “Balochistan: Asia’s Blackhole”.
Not much is said about the film, but from the short trailer it looks like he tried to cover the conflict in Balochistan from all the angles.
People Of Balochistan ‘Waging A Brave Struggle’ Against Atrocities Committed By Pakistan: India Tells UN
Geneva: India on Thursday raised the issue of Balochistan at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva and urged the UN body to take a “clear-cut stance” against atrocities committed by Pakistan, adding that the people of the state are “waging for decades a bitter and brave struggle against daily abuse”.
The Indian delegation also slammed Pakistan for raking up Jammu and Kashmir at the UNHRC for propagandist purposes, reminding Islamabad of its obligation under UN resolutions to first vacate the illegal occupation of the Indian state.
WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, while describing the aspersions of a congressman about Pakistan’s alleged links to terrorism as ‘well-founded’, has announced an inter-agency review of US funding and support to Pakistan.
The remarks — at a budget hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week — give a rare insight into the Trump administration’s views on Pakistan. Although in power for the last six months, the administration has been unusually silent on US-Pakistan relations.
Secretary Tillerson’s declaration and comments by some lawmakers — both included in a transcript released on Thursday — led the media to speculate that the review may cause further reduction in already dwindling US aid to Pakistan.
