Modern-Day ‘Great Game’ Plays Out In Baluchistan
by Anthony Kuhn
Almost since the birth of Pakistan, its government has been battling a low-level insurgency in the southwest region of Baluchistan.
The region accounts for nearly half of Pakistan’s territory. Its strategic position and natural resources are attracting the involvement of foreign powers, which are making the insurgency worse.
TORONTO, January 13 – Baloch Human Rights Council (Canada) has declared the recent killings of the indigenous Baloch populace in Karachi as a wider plan of the MQM to assert its administrative control over the city. The hegemonic and expansionist designs of MQM supported by the state policies are the root cause to all ethnic and sectarian strife and violence in Karachi. The goals sanctioned by the MQM’s reign of terror against lawyers in the past, looting and burning of two thousand shops, target killing of indigenous social activists who resisted land grabbing, and the indiscriminate killings of innocent Baloch and Sindhis in Karachi – is to decapitate Sindh’s capital from its historical and cultural roots and run it mafia-like as the Hong Kong of South Asia.
