Although Pakistan’s security forces have successfully been coping
with the Taliban militants in the tribal areas, yet situation has
deteriorated in Balochistan where subversive events like targeted
killings, attacks on buildings, oil pipelines etc. have intensified. In
fact, with the tactical support of the US and Israel, India have been
supporting feudal lords (Sardars) of Balochistan to oppose country’s
federation. These external elements have also been providing arms and
ammunition to the Baloch separatist leaders.
Notably, on August 14, 2009, Financial Times (online) had reported
“Settlers from other parts of Pakistan, especially Punjab, have been
given deadlines to leave.” As a matter of fact, this is what the Indian
plotters wanted by inciting the general masses of Balochistan to openly
speak against the federation of Pakistan and the Punjabis for all the
injustices, created by the Baloh feudal lords (Sardars) who have been
fighting for their own so-called status, prestige and influence, while
working on the agenda of foreign countries.
Although Pakistan’s civil and military leadership has repeatedly
stated that Indian secret agency, RAW supports separatism in the
province of Balochistan, and its evidence will be shown to the western
countries at the right occasion, yet Indian intervention in Balochistan
is not confined to verbal statements, it has in fact proved. In this
context, the Institute of Defence Studies and Analysis (IDSA), New Delhi
organised a seminar titled: South Asia 2020 in relation to Balochistan.
In their speeches, various scholars and thinktanks maligned Pakistan in
one or the other way.
Besides the seminar, on November 5, 2009, a secret conference titled:
“Pakistan is Problem in Balochistan” was organised by the Observer
Research Foundation (ORF) in New Delhi. It was headed by the former
secretary of RAW and Indian former chief of army staff. In that
conference, three Baloch leaders, namely, Dr Wahid Baloch, Khan of Kalat
and Munir Mengal also participated.
The speech of Dr. Wahid Baloch, General Secretary of the American Friends Balohistan (AFOB) is of special attention.
