Nokondi and Chaghi incidents are the results of Pakistan’s psychological defeat: Dr. Allah Nizar

Baloch pro independent leader Dr. Allah Nazar Baloch condemned the Nokondi and Chaghi incidents, saying it was a continuation of the ongoing genocide and collective punishment in Balochistan.

The word collective punishment and genocide seems too small for Pakistani brutality

Curzon’s curse

Mir Mohammad Ali

A hundred years ago Lord Curzon bequeathed this region with an efficient and reliable instrument of repression in the form of the Frontier Corps (FC). It served his Frontier policy well and kept peace there for them to securely continue the exploitation of the Subcontinent unhindered and unchallenged. One has to give to give the devil his due, he created an outfit which not only fulfilled their needs then but is still serving the interests of Imperialism along with those of the tyrants here. It still has a place of pride in the strategic needs of anyone who requires a willing fighting machine and can pay handsomely. He must be smiling smugly with contentment in his grave that the ‘curse’ he left behind is still very much alive and kicking, kicking in the literal sense of the term.

تحفظ کی رقم کے طور پر اضافی کمائی دراصل ’بھتہ خوری‘ کے بدصورت لفظ کیلئے محض ایک زیادہ قابل احترام نام ہے

Either Tweedledum or Tweedledee – Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

Extra earning as protection money is in fact just a more respectable name for the ugly word ‘extortion’

Mir Muhammad Ali TalpurDuring the Senate session on August 3, Senator Usman Kakar of the Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party initiated debate on a motion on an agreement signed between the Frontier Corps (FC) and the lease owners of coalmines in Harnai and the imposition of a tax on the latter by the FC. He accused the FC of “interfering in provincial autonomy by intruding in the affairs of the Balochistan government” and added that though the Chief Minister (CM) Dr Malik had declared the agreement “illegal” the FC was still collecting Rs 220 as protection money per tonne of coal. Farhatullah Babar of the PPP alleged that the FC was disobeying the directives of the provincial government and taking “extra-constitutional steps”. He also called for action against the FC officers who had been named by relatives of missing persons in the courts.
