South Asian News Agency (SANA) Balochistan Day was observed all over the country on the appeal of the Defai-e-Pakistan Council in order to express solidarity with the Balochistan people and to stress for the solution of their problems on emergency basis.Demonstrations were held after Juma prayers in major cities including Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Quetta, Peshawar. Prominent leaders from different parties of the DPC while addressing the rallies, called upon the government to accept the genuine demands of the Balochistan people, stop the military operation there and recover the missing persons. They said that the whole nation stood with the people of Balochistan and urged the rulers to take effective and concrete steps for solving the problem of the province instead of making hollow promises.
Ameer, JuD, Syed Munawar Hasan, while addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, said that unfortunately, the rulers considered military operation as panacea for all ills and had tried it time and again although it had always horrible results. Military action in East Pakistan ended up in the emergence of Bangladesh. He said, fifth military operation was going on in Balochistan due to which, the situation was getting worse day by day.
However, he said, the situation was not out of control as yet. In fact, the US had been working on its agenda in Balochsitan since long as it wanted to split the area in Afghani, Iranian and Pakistani Balochistan, occupy its rich resources and also to use it for attacking Iran and Pakistan after its exit from Afghanistan. It was tragic that instead of striving to resolve the issue, the Pakistani rulers were advancing the US interests.
The international media had revealed the US designs long time back but the rulers kept upon sleeping with the result that the feelings of hatred in Balochistan people got deep. He said it was ridiculous that the government that had doled out Rs 380 million for Senate seats, should be content only to call APC on Balochistan. He deplored that that the ministers and parliamentarians from Balochistan were also not worried about the Balochistan situation and were only interested in their perks.
Continuing, the JI Ameer said it was an irony that that the government which had given red carpet farewell to Pervez Musharraf, was now pasting summons on his door.
He said that Nawab Akbar Bugti’s killing in a military operation was not the proper way to deal with the man as he should have been given an opportunity to clear his position regarding the allegations against him. Ends-SANA-ZS
