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

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

Baloch should acquire what colonizers call subversive education because the education that colonizers provide can only pollute minds and blunt the will for liberty

From Social Media
Counting up to August 2013, as many as 126 extrajudicial deaths and over 400 disappearances have taken place in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. Violent killings and disappearance after arrest by authorities continues without relent. Most bodies, of those murdered extra judicially, have been found in the Balochi speaking districts of the province, particularly Quetta, Khuzdar, Kalat, and Mekran.
Because of the massively warped allocations, no educational institution in Balochistan would be able to compete with those in Punjab
During the recent ‘missing persons’ hearing in Quetta the Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said that there is no proper checking in the city. The check posts manned by the Frontier Corps (FC), customs and police are just an ‘eyewash’; ‘hogwash’ would be more appropriate, and smuggling continues as the FC border check posts are simply symbolic and used for making money. He said that the available evidence showed the FC personnel’s involvement in some incidents of missing persons, and the missing persons’ relatives blame the FC for disappearances. Apparently, it has only now dawned on them that all that happens in Balochistan is an eyewash; the people of Balochistan have always known these injustices and have been trying to rouse sleeping consciences but failed. All institutional measures and actions there are hogwash.
