The Gulf of Kohlu incident

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

On August 4th 1964 two US destroyers in the Vietnamese waters in the Gulf of Tonkin claimed that they had been attacked by the North Vietnamese gunboats. This alleged attack had never taken place but a furore was created over this and used as an excuse to begin the bombing of North Vietnam. This was the time when slowly US forces were starting to sink in the morass of their own aggression against the Vietnamese people whom they accused of being Communists. The people of Vietnam only wanted their rightful sovereignty which the US was bent upon denying them. What eventually happened to the aggressor is history.

Incidents like these have been staged and at times State managed all through history to use as excuses for aggression and violation of human rights .In the last analysis the aggressor doesn’t really need this fig leaf for its brazen aggression. The aggressor always uses the logic of the wolf of the famous fable about the lamb and wolf ,in which the wolf alleges misdemeanours but is rebutted every time eventually comes out with the stark intent of eating the lamb come what may.

He once dreamed of a bright future and a stable career working for Pakistan’s biggest gas company.

Instead, Suhail Ahmed Bugti has been crushing stones for the past 10 years after his clan was banished from their gas-rich homeland in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan Province into the stony deserts of Rohri district in neighboring Sindh Province.

What next for Baluchistan?

Balochistan 2

Every day is another struggle for the province of Baluchistan, which continues to remain unsteady with the horrifying tumult and turbulence in the region. It’s sure a pity to watch such unrest grip thousands of families frequently, without a silver lining to fall back on. But then one can’t ignore but notice the pattern Baluchistan has fallen into, its trajectory being very similar to former East Pakistan.

So, naturally the question becomes ‘Is Baluchistan the next East Pakistan’? The resemblance is eerie to the extent that one cannot help but wonder, ‘What next for Baluchistan’? Will all this chaos finally result into a separate province or very much like Azad Kashmir carry on with the struggle forever? Located in the southwest region of Pakistan, Baluchistan is the biggest of the four provinces of the country. Administratively divided among three countries, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, it has been a turf of turmoil and conflict since its annexation by Pakistan in 1947 and still continues to be. Notably known as the ‘Baluchistan Conflict’, it is a major growing conflict between the Pakistani government and the Baloch nationalists.
