KARACHI: The Pakistan Sikh Council has warned the government that the community will launch a countrywide protest movement if the all the culprits who had desecrated their holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, are not arrested by May 31.
.......
Giving details of the incidents in which the copy of their holy book was burnt, he said that the incidents were reported from Dal Darbar in Pano Aqil, Guru Nanak Darbar Mehar in Dadu district, Samadha Ashram, Sajal Sher Jhulelal Darbar and Khatwari Darbar in Shikarpur district. Only this month, similar incidents were reported from Bhagnari Temple in Karachi’s Lea Market and Jai Ram Das Darbar in Madheji, Shikarpur, on May 6 and 7, respectively.

...........


There is a sustained effort by ISI to show Hindus as the culprits of Granth Saheb Ji's burning across Pakiland.Hindus & Sikhs in Pakiland are being made to fight like dogs against each other .

News as reported in Paki rags for similar burnings in 2013
SHIKARPUR/KARACHI: A huge rift over the alleged desecration of a holy book was averted in Shikarpur after two groups belonging to the Hindu and Sikh minorities reached a compromise.

However, the Sikhs, who are a smaller minority in Shikarpur, reported being threatened by local Hindus in the area.

The incident caused an uproar after Sikh students shared pictures of a recently held four-day mela (festival) in Jai Samadha Ashram in Shikarpur where the head of the Hindu temple was seen holding the Guru Granth Sahib (Holy book of Sikhs) bare-headed.

But in others, he was photographed drawing signs and symbols on the holy book.

The temple, housing both Geeta and Guru Granth Sahib for decades, is the most frequented place of worship for both religious communities.

In the pictures that circulated on social networking site Facebook, the head of the temple, Swami Saeen Narayan Bhajan, a young man in his late 20s, is seen signing the scripture after drawing a symbol belonging to the Hindu faith.

Within an hour, the pictures created a furor among Sikh residents in the area, who then contacted their local representatives. Eventually, the pictures reached the chairman of the Pakistan Sikh Council, Sardar Ramesh Singh, who led a 22-member team to Shikarpur to sort out the matter.

“Young men were ready to fight and kill each other if we hadn't reached in time,” he narrated while giving an interview on phone.

Singh, who was shown the pictures, said “coloured pen was used to create drawings of Hindu God Ganesha on a few pages” which angered many in the community.

The matter was resolved after Swami Narayan Bhajan admitted his mistake and apologised to the community elders, adding that he did not intend any disrespect.

Tara Singh, head of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdhwara Prabandhak (Managing) Committee, said that they want peace to prevail between the two communities.

“We don’t want the situation to get out of hand. And believe in forgive and forget,” he added.

However, Singh said that, some of the families who informed the elders about the incident later received text messages threatening them for “publicising the incident to gain attention,” causing panic within the community.

A telephone quote from back then
Back in Sep 2013
..........

Former president of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSPGC) Bishan Singh who is also chairman of Baba Guru Nanak Welfare Society, Pakistan told TOI over phone from Lahore on Saturday that there were certain elements who wanted to create a rift between the Sikhs and Hindus by resorting to such incidents.

The Pakistan Sikh Council has also alleged that the copies of sacred Sikh Scripture have been burnt, and torn off in Hindu temples in Mehhar, Pano Aqil, Sukkur, Mirpur Mathelo and Shikarpur cities. The fact is that attacks on the Sikh faith by Hindus have been ongoing for years in order to show Sikhs to be a part of Hinduism.
Indian supported Hindu temples in Sindh are trying to subjugate the Sikh identity by placing Sikh Scripture in the Hindu temples. They are trying to establish that the Sikhs had no separate identity of their own. This is obviously not acceptable to the Sikhs as the Sikh community has become reform oriented and politically aware, thinking that without a distinct identity and its acknowledgement by others, the Sikh community would be subsumed by the Hindu community and suffer politically, economically, socially and in the field of religion.

Followers of one Abrahamic religion criticise followers of another Abrahamic religion. Clergyman of the Catholic sect of Christism and Academic teaching at a Catholic sect established University , both of whom serve as commissioners for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) attack the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws:

In 2014, Pakistani courts already have sentenced four people to death for violating Pakistan's blasphemy law, and another has received a life sentence. They join at least 13 others on death row and 19 serving life sentences. Last month, a major television station was charged with blasphemy, and authorities also charged 68 lawyers with blasphemy after they protested police abuse. The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which we recently joined, has found that Pakistan has jailed more people for this "crime" than any other country.


“Liberal” citizens of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan will off course be attempting to sweep this all under the carpet by saying all manner of democratic countries including India have blasphemy laws on their statute books and in any event the law was inherited from the British. What will of course not be mentioned by these “Liberal” citizens of the Islamic Republic is that that life imprisonment and death sentences are not handing down in civilised countries for acts of blasphemy. What will of course not be mentioned is that only blasphemy against the Mohammadden religion is punished with death sentence and life imprisonment. Also what will not be mentioned is that blasphemy committed by Mohammaddens against Christism, Hinduism, Sikhism or Zorastrianism is not punished with death sentence and life imprisonment.

Human Rights Watch issues a 62 page report on the topic of Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden Religion motivated sectarian violence in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan titled "We are the Walking Dead".

HRW Report clearly shows that Mohammaddens of the minority Shia sect of Mohammaddenism will continue paying the bloody price for unwisely supporting the formation of a country, namely the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as a supposed safe haven for the adherents of that religion residing on the Indian Sub-Continent.

Further HRW Report does nothing to buttress the claim by followers of Mohammaddenism that their Religion is “The Religion Of Peace”.

Reading the HRW report also made me realise that I had over the past five years come across no such similar instances of internecine killings in other religious groups such as Buddhists, Christists, Hindus, Jains or Jews over issues of interpretation of religion anywhere in the world. Can anyone point out if I am mistaken by pointing out cases over the past five years anywhere in the world, of Hinayana Buddhists killing Mahayana Buddhists or vice versa, or Catholic Christists killing Protestant Christists or vice versa, or Shivite Hindus killing Vaishnavite Hindus or vice versa, or Digamber Jains killing Shwetamber Jains or vice versa, or Ashkanazie Jews killing Sephardic Jews or Vice versa; all over differences of interpretation of their respective religions? Or is it that the Mohammaddenism is somehow a special lone case among the world’s religions when it comes to the matter of killing co-religionists over interpretation of own religion?

Hindus Among Those Displaced by Military Ops in Waziristan

Over 100 Hindus are among thousands of people who have fled the restive North Waziristan tribal region due to Pakistan military's operation against Taliban militants, media reported today.
"The minorities of North Waziristan complain that they have been ignored by the government and are living in Bannu city in miserable condition. Currently a Christian community in Bannu is providing help to both Hindus and Christians with food, shelter and other necessities of life," the report said.
"Neither the government’s representatives nor the political leadership of minorities have so far come to help these poor people," he added.
The family of Rajish Daas from Civil Colony Miranshah, who is a tailor by profession, said "We have been registered as IDPs at the Saidgai Checkpoint but we are being treated as second class citizens. The minorities are being ignored at food distribution points."
so far none of the minorities have reportedly allowed to be settled in government-run camp

Followers of one Abrahamic religion (Christism), flee religious persecution from a country (Islamic Republic Of Pakistan) ruled by followers of another Abrahamic religion (Mohammaddenism) and seek refuge in a country (Thailand) ruled by followers of a Dharmic Religion (Buddhism).

Followers of Abrahamic religions it would seem :

1.See nothing wrong in persecuting the follower of another Abrahamic religion.

2.Place greater faith in escaping religious persecution in Dharmic lands rather than in lands governed by fellow Abrahamics.

Packing their bags: Christians moving to Thailand to escape violence, insecurity

In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a country claimed to have been created as a safe-haven for the Mohammaddens of the Indian Sub-Continent, barbers are gaining popularity as victims of choice in the Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden religion motivated sectarian extermination where the self-proclaimed “More Pure” cleanse the “Land of the Pure” of those deemed “Less Pure”. In two separate incidents in Karachi, four barbers belonging to minority Shia sect of Mohammaddenism were killed in religious motivated sectarian attacks.

Reading the below Dawn article reminded me that I had over the past decade come across no such similar instances of internecine killings in other religious groups such as Buddhists, Christists, Hindus, Jains or Jews over issues of interpretation of religion anywhere in the world.

Can anyone thus enlighten if there were similar cases over the past decade anywhere in the world, of Hinayana Buddhists killing Mahayana Buddhists or vice versa, or Catholic Christists killing Protestant Christists or vice versa, or Shaivite Hindus killing Vaishnavite Hindus or vice versa, or Digamber Jains killing Shwetamber Jains or vice versa, or Ashkanazie Jews killing Sephardic Jews or Vice versa; all over differences of interpretation of their respective religions?

Or is it that the Mohammaddenism is somehow a special lone case among the world’s religions when it comes to the matter of killing co-religionists over interpretation of own religion?

Targeted: Two barbers gunned down by four assailants at their shop in Liaquatabad

By Our Correspondent. Published: August 7, 2014

KARACHI: Police have been unable to trace the assailants responsible for the series of target killings of barbers in District Central, The Express Tribune has learnt.

In the latest incident, two barbers were shot dead by at least four assailants who targeted their shop in FC Area, Liaquatabad, within the limits of Sharifabad Police Station. Ashraf, 35, and his uncle, Hameed, 50, were working at their shop when they were targeted on Tuesday night. The assailants, however, managed to escape after committing the crime. Both the victims were shifted to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where doctors pronounced them dead on arrival.

This was the second such incident in the vicinity. A couple of days before Eidul Fitr, two other barbers were shot dead by armed motorcyclists at their shop. Though the police have yet to arrest the culprits, they suspect that both the attacks were carried out by the same group. “All four victims belonged to the Shia community,” SHO Shaukat Raza told The Express Tribune. “Our initial investigation suggests that both the incidents occurred over sectarian basis and the same men are behind these killings in the area.” ………………………..

Forced conversions grieve Hindu community in the Sindh - Daily Times
Hindu girls subjected to forced conversion were deprived of justice due to failed judiciary, corruption and improper representation of minorities, said Amarnath Motumal legal adviser of Pakistan Hindu Seva Welfare Trust (PHSWT) and President of Hindu Panchayat Karachi division on Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club along with PHSWT’s President Sanjesh S Dhanja and Vice President Chander Kohli, who shared their recent experiences from the fact finding mission on the issues faced by Hindu community which was conducted in seven districts of Sindh by PHSWT in collaboration with Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD).
Considering force conversion as the most saviour issue being faced by the Hindu minority Amarnath Motumal said. “This act experienced in Sindh in the name of Islam was not conversion but the abduction and trade of Hindu girls, conversion to any religion should be after dialogs and sensible discussion instead of using force and criminal tactics.”

Describing the conditions of the girls subjected to conversion Amarnath said mostly the girls were either teen-age or they were not provided with proper counselling as their families were unable to trace them.

In those cases where the victims were traced, the cases were exploited in the courts and the culprits finally remained undeterred while many forced converted girls were scared to get back home as they feared the consequences they and their family might face.

Motumal showed concern on the approach of the state authorities. According to him when a Hindu girl was converted instead of going through its complications, considering the factor of force and blackmailing and inefficient counselling the authorities was mostly seems happy with this act of forced conversion by defending it. Hindu community in Pakistan was scared as they could nether express their grievances nor they could provide information as there was no one to secure them from the consequences of going against the powerful groups working in the name of religion.

Chander Kohli on the fact finding mission said in many areas of Sindh the Hindu community was subjected to bonded labor, forced conversion, torture and rape many of the victims were committing suicide while they were also being brutally killed responding on the recent killing of a Hindu in Badin district.

The temples in Larkana, Hyderabad, Tharparkar and Jamesabad were demolished while the schools in Tharparkar were still not opened. He denounced police and state authorities being aware of the culprits were intentionally not taking any action. Instead of taking the issues of demolishing the temples the government showed criminal negligence, he added.
Sanjesh Dhanja condemned the discriminatory attitude toward minorities in the organisations where he said 90 percent of the organisation did not act on the 5percent quota for minorities which spreading disappointment among the talented youth of Hindu community.

Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden religion motivated killings in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan finds a brand new group of victims to exterminate. Adherents of Minority Zikri aka Zikri Mahdavi sub-sect of Sunni Mohammaddenism, killed while worshipping.

The Zikri aka Zikri Mahdavi sub-sect of Sunni Mohammaddenism traces its roots back to Jaunpuri in Uttar Pradesh and adherents are concentrated in Balochistan in the Islamic republic of Pakistan and contiguous areas in Iran and Afghanistan.

For a country claimed to have been created as a safe haven for the Mohammaddens of the Indian Sub-Continent, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is adept at finding new groups of Mohammaddens to persecute for obscure differences in interpretation of their shared religion:

And so in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Sikhs yet again experience the horror of being a Non-Mohammadden in a Mohammadden majority country. This current attack is the third such attack in the period of about a month in which the Sikh minority has been targeted by the Mohammadden majority in the Islamic Republic.

Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden sectarian violence in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan sees Mohammadden Scholar belonging to the Shia variant of Mohammaddenism, Allama Ali Akbar Kumaili, being gunned down in Karachi.

The frequency and lack of any meaningful Mohammadden outrage at the attacks by Mohammaddens on Mohammadden religious scholars clearly indicates that killing of own religious scholars is not a taboo activity in Mohammaddenism. Since I have not come across a single instance over the past decade of a Buddhist killing a Buddhist scholar, Christist killing a Christist scholar, Confucian killing a Confucian scholar, Jew killing a Jewish scholar, Jain killing a Jain scholar, Parsi killing a Parsi scholar, Sikh killing a Sikh scholar, Shinto killing a Shinto scholar or Taoist killing a Taoist scholar, for religious reasons, I have been compelled to conclude that this deviant behaviour is a uniquely Mohammadden practise:

Pakistan's Balochs demand Scots-style referendum :

Dr Bashir Azeem, secretary general of the outlawed Baloch Republican Party, said: "The Baloch have been struggling against the excesses and tyranny of Punjab-dominated establishment of Pakistan for decades," referring to the country's largest and most powerful province.

"If a fair referendum is conducted after creating an atmosphere for it, providing the opportunity to Baloch population for deciding their future, it is welcomed," he added.


AFP via Times of Oman

India must support Balochistan to escape “excesses and tyranny of Punjab-dominated establishment of Pakistan”. Indian consulates in Afghanistan and Iran should redouble efforts.

In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan another Mohammadden religion motivated act of violence sees Policeman kill one "blasphemer" similar to the case where Governor of Pakistan occupied Punjab Province Salman Taseer was shot dead aka Bull Cutletted by his Police body guard Malik Mumtaz Qadri. The Mohammadden Policeman in question went after two prisoners jailed for blasphemy in a Haji Bull Cutlet spree that resulted in one fellow Abrahamic Christist Cleric being killed.

Christian Pastor Accused of Blasphemy Killed in Pakistan Jail:

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A Pakistani police officer shot two men in jail on Thursday, killing one accused of blasphemy and wounding another condemned to death on the same charge, lawyers and an activist said. Christian pastor Zafar Bhatti was killed and 70-year-old Briton Muhammad Asghar, who has a history of mental illness, was wounded in the attack in Rawalpindi. ……………….

And so in Quetta, in Islamic Republic of Pakistan occupied Balochistan, yet again a demonstration of the IED Mubarak variant of the IEDology of Pakistan. This time around just two days shy of the Mohammadden “festival of sacrifice”or “Eid al Adah” where live stock get sacrificed by having throats slit. It hardly does credit to Mohammaddenism to see Mohammaddens of the minority Shia sect play role of sacrificial goats and get slaughtered by Sunni co-religionists.

Cardinal Tauran denounces murder of Christian couple in Pakistan

(Vatican Radio) Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue has denounced the assassination of a young couple in Pakistan, who had been accused of blasphemy.

In an interview with Vatican Radio, the cardinal added that he was “shocked” by the “barbarous acts”.

Listen to the report: ……………..{Snipped}………………

According to the couple’s Christian lawyer, the young Shahzad and Shama Masih were beaten by an angry Mulsim mob on Tuesday and then burned alive. Police instead report the young couple was beaten to death and then their bodies burned.

“Obviously, one remains speechless before such barbarous acts,” said the cardinal. “And what is worse is that religion is invoked in a specific way. A religion cannot justify such acts, such crimes. There is this lay on blasphemy, the ‘blasphemy law’, which poses a problem.”

The cardinal noted that there have been about 60 executions under the blasphemy law since it was adopted. He called for some international intervention in the matter, saying that a minimum of humanity and solidarity is required and that dialogue is necessary.

Since direct intervention in Pakistan’s domestic affairs is not appropriate, said the cardinal, legislators must be helped to understand that laws must respect the dignity of the person.

Cardinal Tauran said the Church must denounce such violent acts publicly, with consistency and force. He said he hopes Muslim leaders will do the same. He said Muslims are victimized by these acts of violence as well, as they give a very negative image of Islam.

“Therefore, it is in their interest to denounce such acts in a vigorous manner,” he said.

The cardinal said solidarity is the way to continue giving hope to Christians facing daily threats and violence. He also underlined some encouraging and well-received initiatives by the Church in the Middle East.

“We need to bet on fraternity,” he said, “which is the theme of the World Day of Peace.”

Two articles datelined the same day from German State owned broadcaster Deutsche Welle dealing with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s grossly unjust Mohammadden religion influenced blasphemy law. The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is certainly attracting global attention with its malign ways.

First article points out that the difference between so called Islamist and Non-Islamist is blurring, not that it should come as any surprise to posters on this forum who have long known that Mohammadden supremacist thinking has infiltrated almost the entire Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

Blasphemy violence: Blurring line between Islamists and common Pakistanis

Second article demands pressure be put to get the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to repeal the grossly unjust Mohammadden religion influenced blasphemy law:

The West must demand changes to Pakistan's blasphemy laws

“Important Notice: On December 25 and December 26, on account of the Christian community’s religious festival, Christmas, the sweepers will be off"

Though born and bred in this country, never before that day had I realised that on Christmas Day the streets, office washrooms and buildings are not swept. Despite cleanliness being an important part of Islam, in Pakistan, unfortunately, it is taken as a job beneath the stature of Muslims and thus, handed over to the Christian population of the country.


Does being Christian in Pakistan automatically mean that this the only job available to them is that of a sweeper or the likes? Do their qualifications merit no regard?

Why aren’t they allowed to choose another occupation? Why aren’t they given the hope of becoming a doctor, banker or teacher in this country? Even simpler jobs like becoming a green grocer or fruit vendor seem to be out of their reach? Why? The answer is, because Pakistan is not an egalitarian society.

We believe in four holy books, and out of them, one was revealed on Hazrat Essa (AS) (Jesus Christ). This makes me question, are we not supposed to mark his birth anniversary being Muslims? Why do only Christians celebrate Christmas and not us? Perhaps if we start doing that, we might become less aggressive towards our minorities and might start treating them with respect.
I do wish we Pakistanis become better human beings and humanity prevails in this part of the world.


Sorry if the title is offensive :-?

Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden religion based sectarian violence in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan sees a demonstration of the IED Mubarak variant of the IEDology of Pakistan targeting members of the minority Shia sect who had gathered outside a Mohammadden place of worship in order to celebrate Eid e Milad Un Nabi or the birthday of the Prophet of Mohammaddenism.

For a religion whose adherents loudly proclaims that theirs is “The Religion Of Peace” and get very offended when claim is rejected by Non-Mohammaddens, the frequent attacks on Mosques / Imambargahs and other places of religious significance to Mohammaddens themselves like shrines and the frequent attacks on days that are of religious significance by Mohammaddens themselves, is shockingly high.:

Suicide bomber targets Pakistan mosque : Seven Shias killed and several injured as attacker blows himself up at the entrance to the building in Rawalpindi.

Comments of BJP Spokesperson Nalin Kohli after the twin demonstrations of the IEDology of Pakistan in Lahore Churches today.

“Pakistan is definitely one of the most unsafe places now and regularly such kinds of incidents are taking place even targeted specifically to the minorities within Pakistan. Pakistan will not be able to solve or achieve victory in its fight against terror if it is going to maintain a duplicity in its approach of good terrorists, bad terrorists"


"You can't support those terrorists who do action against India and protect them, and take action against those who actually perpetrate terror in Pakistan"


Pakistan won't be able to solve or achieve victory in its fight against terror: BJP

Washington Post reports that in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Mohammadden Terrorists target fellow Abrahamic Christist Missionary by name of Debra Lobo who works as a Vice Principal of a Dental College in Karachi:

American wounded in Pakistan in apparent terrorist shooting, police say

Separately Reuters reports that the Mohammadden Terrorists left behind a pamphlet in English at the crime scene saying,:

"Oh crusaders, we are the lions of Dualat al Islamia, the falcons of the caliph. Today we killed this Kansas lady Lobo, we shall lie and wait and ambush you and kill you wherever you may be and confined and besiege you in America and then god willing ... we will burn American.":

X Posted from the “Baluchistan: The Story of Another Pakistan Military Genocide” thread.

The Punjabi Military Dominated Deep State of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s attempt to pillage Balochistans resources with the help of Taller than Himalaya’s, Deeper than Indian Ocean, Sweeter than Honey, Iron Brother, the Peoples Republic of China is opposed by the freedom yearning Baloch.

Deutsche Welle’s interview of Baluchi Freedom Fighter Brahamdagh Bugti posted in full. Note references to Punjab’s pillage of Baloch resources, human right violations of the Uniformed Jihadi’s of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the pronouncement that P.R. Chinese investment will be opposed by the Balochi’s:

DW: Pakistani officials say that the economic corridor deal with China would transform the country's economy and fortunes. Since Balochistan's Gwadar port is pivotal in the agreement, do you think the province will also get an economic uplift?

Brahamdagh Bugti: None of the previous development projects in Balochistan have ever been beneficial to the province or its people. I don't think it will be any different this time around.

We have been complaining for decades that Islamabad has never sought the consent of the Baloch people before initiating these projects. It is quite obvious that they are not launched to boost the province's economy or to help people out of poverty. They are started for the benefit of the rulers in Islamabad.

Balochistan's provincial government has expressed reservations against the CPEC, saying it was not taken into confidence over the project. What is your take on it?

Let me put it in simple words: it's not a deal between China and Pakistan; it is a deal between China and the Punjab province. We have no problem with that. The Punjab's rulers are free to do what they want. But we don't allow China and the Punjab] to use Balochistan for their benefits.

Balochistan is facing a military operation. People are being killed. Journalists and rights activists cannot visit the province or go to Gwadar and report from there. How can you assure transparency of any project given these circumstances?

Rights groups accuse Pakistan's security forces and intelligence agencies of playing a part in kidnapping dissidents and separatist activists from the province on a regular basis. Some analysts now say that the China-Pakistan deal could spur rights abuses in Balochistan in the name of ensuring security. Do you agree?

I think there will be massive human rights abuses in Balochistan because of this deal. To secure their financial interests in the province, Islamabad is likely to intensify its military operation there. They will do so in the name of providing security to the multinational and Chinese companies that are investing in the project. They would not even allow peaceful demonstrations and protests against the CPEC.

Isn't there terrorism in the Punjab, in Karachi, and in other parts of Pakistan? But are there people attacked by helicopters like the residents of Balochistan? No. Do you discover the maimed bodies of missing people in other provinces on a daily basis? No. The Taliban have madrassahs in the Punjab Province. Does Islamabad take any action against them? The answer is again, no. There can't be two laws and two systems for the privileged and the underprivileged in the country.

We have no expectations from the provincial government that it will talk to Islamabad on behalf of the Baloch people. Everyone knows how the lawmakers get elected to Balochistan's provincial assembly. It's a sham process.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's government in Islamabad decided to change the corridor route some time ago, diverting it away from some key cities in Balochistan. What was the reason behind the decision?

I think they did so to reduce perceived security threats to the project. It hardly matters to Balochistan. Even if they had kept the major Balochistan cities on the route, it would not have brought any prosperity to them, in my view. For instance, the Pakistani government claims it has started development projects in Dera Bugti to bring wealth to the town. But it is not the case. On the contrary, the paramilitary forces are bombing the area to crush dissent and protect Islamabad's interests.

But the Pakistani government says the Baloch leaders are blocking economic progress of the province and country?

I would ask this: What would our people have received from Islamabad had we remained silent? Some clerical jobs? We don't want to be the gatekeepers of gas pipelines; we demand a fair share of the wealth for our province. Because we are not giving up on our demands, the authorities are bringing in workers from the Punjab to work in our areas.

None of Pakistan's major political parties, including the liberal Pakistan People's Party (PPP), the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), and the Awami National Party (ANP), have raised any major objection against the Chinese-Pakistani deals. It seems you have been isolated in your cause?

None of these parties have any interest in Balochistan. The only interest they have is in exploiting Balochistan's resources and conquering its land. The Punjabi elite want Balochistan's wealth minus the Baloch people.

Since you oppose the economic corridor project, how will you try to stop its implementation?

I have been advocating a political solution to the conflict since the time when my grandfather Akbar Bugti was killed by the Pakistani military. We will launch an international campaign against the exploitation of Balochistan. We won't allow our land and resources to be used for the benefit of another country.
