KARACHI: Describing those involved in “enforced disappearances” of political workers, human rights activists and other individuals as violators of the Constitution, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Tuesday claimed to have taken up the matter in line with the premier’s directives, which included a comprehensive plan to address the issue that, he said, was “more painful than death”.
However, talking to reporters after meeting coalition partner Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) at the party’s temporary headquarters in Bahadurabad, the interior minister apparently conceded the government had limited writ in this regard.Continue reading

Visit of Pakistan’s Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa to Canada came under heated discussion in the Canadian Parliament on Monday.
Parliamentary Secretary of Canadian Defense Ministry Bryan May says allocation of the $50,000 for the reception of Pakistan’s Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa was ‘inappropriate’.

AIl of us tend to fall weak sometimes. It happens to everyone. We may think that some people are immune to it, but that is not true. It happens to everyone: Men, women, children, and the elderly. But when you feel vulnerable, you show strength during the most difficult times. We all know Shaheed Rahmat Khan as a man of dignity who stood firm and did his duty, putting his cause on top priority. He had a great sense of humor and satire, a leader and a commanding figure among his comrades. He’s the man we are familiar with but he had a brave woman, his wife Lumma (Abida), behind him who supported him no matter the circumstances. Consequently, her two young sons were also martyred, and yet she continued to live with a smile that hid all her pain. Abida’s courage is a hope for the Baloch nation.Continue reading

دنیا کے اقوام کے حوالے سے اگر کوئی تاریخ دیکھے تو تمام اقوام کے سامنے دو راستے آئے ہیں۔ ایک اس قوم نے اپنے اوپر جبر، غلامی اور قبضے کو قبول کیا ہے اور دوسری وہ اقوام جنہوں نے اسے قبول نہیں کیا ہے، سر نہیں جھکایا ہے اور غلامی کے خلاف جدوجہد کی ہے، اپنی آزادی کی خاطر مزاحمت کی ہے۔Continue reading

A headline in a national daily with the byline of Ghalani (Mohmand Agency) April 23, left me wondering what had prompted such a radical shift in the government’s avowed policy of ‘no compromise’. The headline said: “Tribal system in Fata to be strengthened.” Interestingly the headline itself was within quotation marks. The news item below said, “The traditional tribal system in Federally Administered Tribal Areas is being strengthened and the status of Maliks is being restored.”
The NWFP governor, Khalilur Rahman, who was on a visit to Mohmand Agency, had said these words. The news item further read: “The governor said development was linked to peace and maintenance of peace (and was) dependent on strengthening the tribal system.” This statement is certainly a very interesting development because they seem to be making different ‘social’ experiments in different regions in hope of solving the numerous problems they themselves have created by their shortsightedness and arrogance.Continue reading
“A people living under the perpetual menace of war and invasion is very easy to govern. It demands no social reforms. It does not haggle over expenditures on armaments and military equipment. It pays without discussion. It ruins itself; and that is an excellent thing for the syndicates of financiers and manufacturers for whom patriotic terrors are an abundant source of gain.”
Jacques Anatole Thibault (1844-1924)
This quote sends shivers down the spine because it is so surrealistically true in our context. It enunciates the sordid tactic which the rulers here employed ruthlessly to make their self-aggrandising agenda pass for an ideology. They then intimidated the people into submission, forcing acceptance of every injustice without a murmur under threat of being labelled traitors. It helped them impose their world view on the majority without a consideration for their history, culture and basic human rights. That the people could have feelings or views independent of the ruling ideology was something absolutely alien to the heartless elite. They were not bothered about civility or moral and legal niceties; they rode roughshod.Continue reading
