اخلاقی طور پر قائل تبصرہ : میر محمد علی ٹالپر ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

ریاست اور اسکے ادارے اپنی بے رحمی کی انتہا کو پہنچ گئے ہیں اور انھوں نے بلوچ کیخلاف پہلے ہی سے اپنا سب کچھ داو پر لگا دیا ہے کیونکہ بلوچ اپنی جدوجہد جاری رکھے ہوئے ہیں

Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

حال ہی میں اسلام آباد کی سپریم کورٹ میں لاپتہ افراد کیس کی سماعت پر راجہ ارشاد، جوکہ انٹر سروسز انٹیلی جنس (آئی ایس آئی) اور ملٹری انٹیلی جنس (ایم آئی) کے نمائندہ وکیل ہیں، چنانچہ یہ اعتراف کیا ہے کہ ’اڈیالہ 11‘ کیخلاف کوئی ثبوت موجود نہیں ہے، ان کا کہنا ہے کہ انہیں حراست میں رکھا گیا ہے کیونکہ یہ ایجنسیاں ”اخلاقی طور پر اس بات پر قائل ہیں کہ وہ دہشت گردی میں ملوث تھے۔“ یہ بیان باضابطہ طور پر آئی ایس آئی اور ایم آئی کے مو قف کو دہراتا ہے کہ اگر وہ ’اخلاقی طور پرقائل‘ ہوں کہ کوئی شخص مجرم ہے تو انہیں اس کو مارنے، اپاہج کرنے یا قید میں رکھنے کیلئے کسی ثبوت کی ضرورت نہیں ہے۔

COMMENT : Morally convinced — Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur

The state and its institutions have been ruthless to the extreme and have already upped the ante against the Baloch because they persist with their struggle

Mir Mohammad Ali TalpurAt the recent Supreme Court missing persons case hearing in Islamabad, Raja Irshad, the lawyer representing the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI), while admitting that no evidence against the ‘Adiala 11’ existed said that they remained detained because these agencies were “morally convinced that they were involved in terrorism.” This statement has officially reiterated the ISI and MI’s position that if they are ‘morally convinced’ that someone is guilty then they do not need any evidence to kill, maim or incarcerate. It is worth mentioning that the bodies of the four original Adiala 11 accused were dumped, and when the others were presented in the court last year, such was their condition that a grief-stricken mother of an accused died of shock the next day. Next, the Attorney General admitted that 700 insurgents in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were held without trial but would not be released. How many Baloch are being held has not been confessed; the Voice of Missing Baloch Persons (VMBP) says 14,000 are missing. The powerless and blustering Supreme Court merely threatens action like the legendary raise seeker who threatened, “Raise my salary, otherwise I will…”
