West must rise to defend Balochistan, I told London’s Rebel Media

In an interview with UK-based Balochistan freedom supporter Tommy Robinson of the Rebel Media I tell him about the dangers London and the United Kingdom are facing at the hands of Pakistan origin Islamic radicals.

It is crazy that ISI moles are now sitting in the UK parliament, serving Pakistan rather than British interests.

In the past the UK did lot of harm to people of color in her former colonies but this does not mean Britons should become sitting ducks at the hands of Islamic radicals like Anjem Chaudhry, whom is thankfully serving jail time. “Sons must not pay for the sins of their fathers,” I said.

The interview took place at the Broken Chair in Geneva. I had gone to Geneva for a week and had worked pro bono for the Balochistan cause. If you like the interview kindly  click the donate button and donate generously.

Gen Petreaus helps Jadhav case as he rejects #ChappalChorPakistan claim of Indian terror in Balochistan

Former CIA chief Gen David Petraeus gave India a clean bill of health on Pakistan’s charge that she sponsors terrorism in France-sized Balochistan. Petraeus agreed that it was a truth that China was on the rise but in the same breath added, “India is the answer.”

Petraeus was speaking at an impressive Raisini Dialogues in the Indian capital of New Delhi, sitting next to Indian foreign secretary

When a woman questioner posed a question to Indian foreign secretary Dr S. Jaishankar about India sponsoring terrorism in Balochistan, Petraeus volunteered to answer and emphasized during his tenure as head of the CIA and commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan he “never once heard the term Indian state-sponsored terrorism.”

Pakistan instead of owning its wrong in Balochistan where the army generals and their cronies are busy looting Balochistan minerals while killing Baloch locals blames India for Balochistan aspirations for freedom. the country which was ruled by dictators for nearly half of its existence since the 1947 Partition Holocaust, calls the largest democracy, “mother of terrorism in South Asia.”

Petraeus statement conclusively backs the Indian stance that Kulbushan Jadhav , a retired commander, was not a spy but a businessman who was abducted from Zahidan. Balochistan’s legendary human rights defender Mama Qadeer, who is in New Delhi for heart surgery of his grandson Beuragh Reki also insisted in media interviews, that Jadhav was abducted from Chabhar by wahabi terrorist Mullah Omar of Lashkar-i-Khurasan and then sold to the ISI.

Pakistan’s terror charge against India borders on absurdity. Dr Ghansham Hotumalani, a Sindhi activist from the town of Kashmore who practices medicine in New Delhi, called this scribe after more than 35 years later. Dr Hotumalani had to flee Pakistan after twice being disappeared by the intelligence services. In the second case, he was charged with being caught red-handed while passing on sensitive military secrets to India.

Pakistan instead of owning its wrong in Balochistan where the army generals and their cronies are busy looting Balochistan minerals while killing Baloch locals blames India for Balochistan aspirations for freedom. the country which was ruled by dictators for nearly half of its existence since the 1947 Partition Holocaust, calls the largest democracy, “mother of terrorism in South Asia.”

It was indeed a stunning success– the line up of speakers at Raisina Dialogue that kicked Tuesday and their in-depth deliberations–, kudos to India’s two distinguished scholars Sunjoy Joshi, chairman, and Samir Saran, vice president of the Observer Research Foundation.

Blood-soaked Balochistan has a new chief minister picked by army, ISI

The France-sized but God-forsaken southwestern province of Pakistan elected a new chief minister who has got the least amount of votes in Pakistan’s poll history, 544, in the last 2013 elections.

The election of Abdul Qudoos Bezinjo took place after former chief minister Sardar Sanaullah Zehri, who had killed his eldest brother Sardar Rasul Baksh Zehri but never got arrested nor tried, was asked to resign amid charges of fabulous corruption and ineptitude.

The new chief minister launched his twitter account this month and as of Saturday night had 106 followers while he is following 15: the Chinese embassy in Pakistan, the deputy chief of mission at the Chinese mission Lijian Zhao and the corps commander of Balochistan, Lt Gen Asim Bajwa.

It was apparent Zehri went afoul of the soldiers calling the shots in Balochistan when he went out of the way to secure the release of  family members of two militant leaders, Dr Allah Nazar and Aslam Baloch in November. The outgoing chief minister was a close friend of Cardif-based Baloch “king without a crown,” Khan of Kalat Suleman Daud.

A 14-member cabinet was also sworn in but surprisingly they did not include any members of the National Party, a party which has the reputation of getting power and perks at any cost and is headed by ports and shipping minister Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo. The main reason could be the Sardar Aslam Bizenjo, who many believes is the real chief of the NP, cannot serve in a cabinet that is headed by someone who is not equal or siyaal.

Qudoos Bezinjo’s grandfather Abdul Kareem Bizenjo was gunned down by Sardar Sherdil Tumrani, chief of a Bizenjo sub-tribe, after he refused to pay a tribal tax called shashak, or one sixth of produce from the land, to Aslam Bizenjo’s father Sardar Faqeer Mohammed Bizenjo.

Qudoos Bizenjo is being called “cheat minister” by online critics of his ascendancy to the top civilian post in Balochistan, even though the real shots are called by the corps commander of the Southern Command, Lt gen Asim Bajwa, former head of the Inter Serbvices Public Relations.

Bizenjo is the third chief minister in less four and half years. After forced annexation of Balochistan by Pakistan in March 1948, balochistan for the the first time had a chief minister, Sardar Ataullah Mengal, but his government was dismissed nine months later on february 13, 1973.

Overall the France-sized occupied territory had 16 chief ministers, of whom only two completed their full terms Jam Yusuf Jamali (December 2002 to November 2007) and Nawab Aslam Raisani (April 2008 to January 2013).

The longest seriving chief minister of the province was an army general, Lt Gen Rahimuddin Khan (July 1977 to April 1985, during the military regime of late Gen Ziaul Haq.

#ChappalChorPakistan protest in Washington DC at Pak embassy today

A group of Americans are organizing a  #ChappalChorPakistan — “Slipper Thief Pakistan”– protest in front of the Pakistan embassy on Sunday at 4.00 pm.

The protest has been organized against  stealing of the shoes of Cheetan Jadhav, wife of Kulbhushan Yadav, when she went there to meet her husband at Pakistan’s foreign ministry on Christmas day. Avanti, Jadhav’s mother, also accompanied the wife and both were asked to remove their mangalsutra, bangles and bindi before they could meet him, India’s external affairs ministry complained.

The protest will begin in front of Pakistan embassy, 3517 International court, Washington, DC 2008 at 4 pm sharp and end at 5.30 pm. The protest is a brainchild of Soumya Chowdhury, who is from West Bengal. The protesters are requested, if possible, to bring a pair of worn or new women shoes to give to Pakistan.

Najeeb Khan, a die-hard supporter of Balochistan freedom who lives in New York, wished that he was in DC to attend the protest.  Khan, who was shot at and almost killed in Quetta, capital of Balochistan, by the ISI four years ago, instead ordered a pair of women shoes to be sent to the Pakistan ambassador Aizaz Chaudhry. “I hope the ambassador won’t gift it to his wife or girlfriend as a gift. Mr Chaudhry has earned himself for not being honest among Washington DC think-tanks. You can expect anything from Pakistanis,” said Khan.

A military court in Pakistan sentenced Jadhav to death for spying and terrorism but according to Rediff news, “New Delhi says Jadhav was kidnapped in Iran where he had legitimate business interests, and brought to Pakistan. To save Jadhav, India moved the International Court of Justice, which ordered Pakistan in May to stay his execution.”
On April 6, the same day Pakistan military court sentenced Jadhav to death India reportedly abducted a Pakistan army officer of the ISI, Lt Col Mohammad Habib, who allegedly played a key role in Jadhav’s abduction, from Kathmandu, Nepal. The Hindustan Times cited two senior security officials as saying Habib’s abduction was aimed at pressuring Pakistan to release Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Sad, tragic story of Pakistan foreign ministry

Pakistan foreign ministry, where the Jadhav ladies were humiliated, has a sad and tragic history. Immediately after the Partition Holocaust in August 1947 Pakistan’s tuberculosis-ridden founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah personally occupied a Hindu merchants property in Karachi, free of cost, to make it the country’s first foreign ministry.

The beautiful mansion belonged to a member from the Maheswari community in Rajasthan, named Shrivratan Chandratan Mohatta. Mohatta personally knew Jinnah but his pleas to spare the mansion he built for his beloved sick wife fell on the deaf ears of Pakistan’s stone-faced, British-backed founder. Heart-broken Mohatta left Karachi, never to return. The majestic Mohatta Palace, now a museum, had a family temple on its terrace dedicated to Lord Shiva.

After Pakistan’s capital was shifted to Islamabad, with the main aim of running of the country by army generals at the GHQ in neighboring Rawalpindi,  the Mohatta Palace was taken over by Jinnah’s secretly flamboyant sister Fatima Jinnah in 1964 who renamed it Qasr-i-Fatima. It was here that Ms Jinnah was allegedly murdered on the orders of Pakistan dictator Gen. Ayub Khan.

The wife of Sindh’s first governor Sir Ghulam Hussain Hidayatullah, Lady Sughra Hidayatullah, who was a family friend of this scribe and also close friend of Ms Jinnah, told me she was murdered at Mohatta Palace. Lady Hidayatullah, who was the first women to reach the murder scene, said her friend had strangulation marks on her neck.

The Ayub regime insisted Ms Jinnah died of a heart failure without carrying out a postmortem and autopsy request by her nephew was turned down by the Ayub regime. After that Shireen Jinnah, another sister of Jinnah, came from India to live in the mansion until she died in 1980.

Lady Hidayatullah’s son Munawar Hidayatullah and his close friend, this scribe’s uncle Aziz Mustikhan, were assassinated by the Hurs during an anti-British rebellion May 16, 1942 when the two were going to New Delhi by train. Lady Hidayatullah’s husband was then the home minister of Sindh.

 

Wave of joy sweeps across Afghanistan, Balochistan & India over Trump’s first tweet of 2018

A wave of joy Monday swept over a huge territory that includes India, Afghanistan and Pakistan-occupied Balochistan over President Donald Trumps first tweet of the New Year but Pakistanis were calling the US president a “man-child” as Islamabad summoned an emergency meeting of the National Security Council Wednesday  to review the situation.

“The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!,” President Trump said in his first tweet of 2018, signifying his frustration over Pakistan’s sponsoring of terrorism against Afghanistan.

Elder Afghan statesman, who is a good friend of Balochistan and India, former president Hamid Karzai, in his two tweets welcomed President Trump’s position. “President tweet on Pakistan’s duplicitous position over the past 15 years is vindication that the war on terror is not in bombing Afghan villages and homes but in the sanctuaries beyond Afghanistan,” Karzai said.

“I welcome today’s clarity in President Trump’s remarks and propose a joint US – regional coalition to pressurize the Pakistan military establishment to bring peace to not just Afghanistan but the entire region.”

Likewise the Afghan ambassador to the USA, the youthful Dr Hamdullah Mohib, tweeted, “President ’s first tweet of 2018. A promising message to Afghans who have suffered at the hands of terrorists based in Pakistan for far too long.”

Pakistan supports its proxies to carry out attacks in Afghanistan is an open secret. On Sunday a Facebook page called “Unofficial: Pakistan Defence Command,linked to Pakistan army and ISI, hailed a terrorist attack that killed 17 Afghans attending a funeral in Jalalabad, eastern Nangahar province. The site also abused Ambassador Mohib for betrayal for backing Trump’s tweet.

Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s former ambassador to the US and author of the “Magnificent Delusions: Pakistan, the United States, and an Epic History of Misunderstanding” rejected the arguments of Islamabad that the US was not doing any favor to Pakistan by giving $33 billion as it was fighting the US war.

“For everyone trying to claim that Coalition Support Funds are reimbursement, not assistance: How is ‘I will pay you the costs of keeping your backyard clean so that snakes being reared there don’t bite me and others’ not assistance?” Ambassador Haqqani, who is the ISI’s most hated man and was almost killed by the dreaded agency when he was called to Pakistan after the US raid on bin Laden to get sacked from his job.

Magnificent Delusions-- Picture courtesy audio bookstore
Cover of book Magnificent Delusions, written by former Pakistan ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani. The book examines how Islamabad hoodwinked the US as if it was an ally.

Islamabad had often argued that Pakistan itself had lost 70,000 lives against Islamic radicals but that is only half truth as the Pakistan Taliban were the snakes that Islamabad had itself raised against India but later turned against the state. Haqqani  re-tweeted a tweet that reads, “US does not depict (convey) the right message to Pak masses. That Pak did not lose 70K lives fighting against Afghan taliban/haqqanis.Pak actually supported them. Pak lost 70K against Pakistan taliban,which were created by Pak in 90s with different names to fight in Kashmir as Pak proxies.”

Both Haqqani and his wife Farahnaz Ispahani, also an intellectual and author of “Purifying Land of Pure: Pakistan’s Religious Minorities” are unwanted persons in Pakistan as they oppose the soldiers meddling in politics. Ispahani re-tweeted a tweet that reads Pakistan renter army got $251,000 per hour for the last 15 years.

Minhaz Merchant, leading Indian intellectual, publisher and author of “The New Clash of Civilizations” welcoming Trump’s tweet, said, “A New Years “gift” to Pak from America. Thoroughly deserved.” But Merchant regretted India’s docility, “President Trump in all but name calls Pak a state sponsor of terrorism. And India, the principal victim of Pak terrorism, still can’t bring itself to designate Pak a terror state.”

India’s softness towards Pakistan has portrayed India’s image on the world stage as a weak elephant. Last week Islamabad thoroughly humiliated wife and mother of alleged Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav and there is much angst among Indian masses but no real action.

Baloch activists were overjoyed. Bhawal Mengal, spokesperson for the World Baloch Organization, welcomed Trump’s statement. “Finally the US recognizes for what it is, a friend to no one but terrorists, this is not only in the interest of the US but the entire world. We also hope becomes the first world leader to hold Pakistan accountable for its crimes in .

Mengal’s father, former senator Javed Mengal, who lives in exile in London, paid out of pocket for one of the most expensive #FreeBalochistan ads campaign in Balochistan history at the Times Square  in New York.

Dr Allah Nazar,  chief of the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), also welcomed Trump’s statement. “Finally United States realizes that Pakistan is a hypocritic and deceptive state. It is a headache for the world and its existence is a malignancy. I appreciate President Trump’s stand. He is the first president to recognize these thugs to humanity,” Dr Nazar tweeted.

Sher Mohammed Bugti, spokesperson for the Baloch Republican Party thanked President Trump “for realizing the monopoly, hypocrisy and double standards of Pakistan as we were screaming and shouting for a long time.”

Pakistan has killed 35,000 Baloch patriots since a bloody insurgency began in Balochistan in 2005, burying 6,000 victims in mass graves, while another 21,000 are missing according to the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons.

Islamabad stuck to its guns even if the defense establishment views Trump’s tweet as the most serious “you are with us or against us” threat since President G.W. Bush. According to Omar R. Quraishi, Editor Digital Properties Samaa, Pakistan summoned US Ambassador David Hale to lodge a very strong protest with him regarding the tweet — tomorrow a cabinet meeting will be held on this issue

Pakistan defense minister Khurram dastgir-Khan, who retweeted a tweet in which Trump was described as “man-child.” tweeted, “Pak (Pakistan)as anti-terror ally has given free to US: land & air communication, military bases & intel cooperation that decimated Al-Qaeda over last 16yrs, but they have given us nothing but invective & mistrust. They overlook cross-border safe havens of terrorists who murder Pakistanis.”

Americans who could not stand Trump for a single moment but know how deceptive Pakistan is were agreeing with their president for the first time.

Prof C. Christine Fair,  who is Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor Georgetown University Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, one of the fiercest critics of President Trump among DC scholars, said, “….Don’t get too excited. Wait for the grown ups to walk this back. This is one of those rare occasions when Trump is correct.”

Likewise human rights defender Jane Eastwood Weisner of Amherst, Massachusetts, who has been very vocal against Trump’s policies, said, “This is the first time I’ve agreed with Trump, but he is right on this one.” She was of the view the president should now back independence for Balochistan and cut off Pakistan’s access to natural resources and the deep seaport at Gwadar.

Weisner counseled friends of Balochistan in US, who are aware of Pakistan’s secret, dirty war there, to ponder “how to get our foot in the White House door to keep pushing an independent Balochistan as the answer to curtailing Pakistan’s support of terrorists.”

Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Monday evening in support of his dad. “Great start. Why give millions to countries who would harbor our enemies?” as he tagged a Fox news story that said Trump was withholding $255 million in aid to Pakistan.

 

Musharraf killed Bhutto, says son; Gen Ayub too suspected of killing Fatima Jinnah

Pakistan People’s Party co-chairperson Bilawal Zardari Bhutto charge that Pinochet of Pakistan, Gen Pervez Musharraf, is the murderer of his mother, twice-premier Benazir Bhutto, is reminiscent of yet another murder in Pakistan’s history: that of Fatima Jinnah, sister of Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

Bilawal Bhutto leveled the charge against the former dictator at a mammoth rally in his maternal Garhi Khuda Bakhsh on his mother’s 10th anniversary of death. The young but soft man cried “Qaatil! Qaatil! Musharraf qatil!” (Murderer, murderer; Musharraf’s the murderer!) in front of the emotional crowd, according to Dawn newspaper. He also accused Gen Musharraf of being the killer of former Balochistan governor and chief minister, Nawab Akbar Bugti.

India-born, but still India hater, fugitive Gen Musharraf taunted the softness in Bilawal bhutto’s personality and, Dawn reported him as saying, “I would like to say to Bilawal, who is raising these slogans like a woman, that he should first become a man.”

Killing of civilian politicians by military dictators is not new. Pakistan’s first Muslim army chief coup leader and dictator Field Marshall Ayub Khan is widely suspected of killing the country’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah sister Fatima Jinnah.

The Pakistani dictator refused the requests of noted Indian barrister Akbar Pir Bhai, Jinnah’s nephew, to order a judicial inquiry, exhume the body as no postmortem was carried out to ascertain the cause of aunt’s death or even interview the doctor who said Fatima Jinnah died of a heart attack

She was killed at the Mohatta Palace which was illegally taken by Mr Jinnah from Hindu merchant Shivratan Chandrata Mohatta, who had in 1927 built the most fabulous mansion in Karachi at the Clifton seafront, for his beloved wife. Mohatta knew Jinnah and tried to plea with him, but Jinnah did not listen. A heartbroken Mohatta left for India never to return.

Fatima Jinnah took over the Mohatta Palace in 1964 and named it Qasr-i-Fatima.

The Ayub regime insisted that Fatima Jinnah had died of a heart attack. However, Fatima Jinnah’s closest friend, Lady Sughra Hidayatullah, wife of Sindh’s first governor told this scribe she clearly saw marks on Jinnah’s neck showing she was strangled to death. Lady Hidayatullah was the first to reach the scene of the murder. Dawn newspaper confirmed what Lady Hidaytullah said and quoted the man who gave the ritualistic bath Hidayat Ali aka Kallu Ghusl “as saying that the corpse of Miss Fatima Jinnah had visible wounds on it.”

Despite her white saree, Fatima Jinnah was privately quite flamboyant and its is not clear if she was killed by one of her many trusted male servants.
