Sept 18, 2016: After PM Narendra Modi’s mention of the war-torn Pakistani province, Balochistan’s plight in his Independence Day speech, a sudden upsurge of rational and irrational reactions has taken place all around the world.

The Baloch Republican Students Organization (BRSO)’s branch in Germany, held a protest here at Berlin with the intent to showcase Pakistan’s barbarity and ruthlessness on Baloch civilians across Balochistan.

The protesters were raising slogans of ‘Baloch wants freedom’, ‘Pakistan Murdabad’, ‘Thankyou Modi’ and ‘We want freedom’.

BRSO spokesperson said to India Today, “Post (Indian) Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks on genocide in Balochistan, Pakistan has stepped up its operation there. In the last 10 days, they have killed around 90 people, but no one is raising voice against it or reporting it. They are forcibly shutting down our book shops where people go to read our literature and are raiding houses and kidnapping the family members of our activists.”

He also said that for now, neither the Pakistani media nor the international human rights organisations are taking up these violations seriously.

“The aim of this protest is to highlight the atrocities and call upon international attention to pressurise Pakistan to respect international human rights laws,” he added.

According to India Today reports, the spokesperson further said that the United States providing military aid and support to Pakistanis further strengthening Islamabad’s confidence.

“Even after so many of our people have died, the United States is providing strategic and military support to Pakistan, which it uses for conducting genocide against its own people,” he added.

“We request Prime Minister Modi to form a committee that could represent the issue of Balochistan the United Nations and want to thank him and the Indian media for highlighting the issue,” said BRSO spokesperson.

The protests in Berlin were also aimed at drawing world’s attention towards the Baloch issues as the activists said that ignorance by the UN and World is also leading to worse situations at Balochistan.

Pakistan is violating the peace and human rights violations by torturing the Baloch civilians as no international organisation is willing to take a stand against it.

The Pakistani Army has also been alleged of the forceful evacuation of people from their traditional homesteads and farmlands in several areas of Gilgit-Baltistan and Balochistan so as to make the land available for the CPEC.

Former Military Ruler Pervez Musharraf wanted ‘underhand’ deal in 2007, says Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

Islamabad, March 22, 2017: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf offered him an ‘underhand’ deal to form a joint government but he turned it down. Addressing the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz parliamentary committee on Tuesday, Sharif said, “Musharraf wanted a secret deal with me in 2007, but I declined.”

Musharraf was the then Pakistan president and Sharif had just returned from exile. The Dawn on Wednesday quoted Sharif as saying that he didn’t believe in making clandestine deals with people who had ruined people’s aspirations.

He said his family did not want to leave Pakistan after the Musharraf-led military coup but was forced to go into exile by the military dictator. “We left the country in a miserable condition and were not allowed to return for a long time,” he said.

The prime minister noted that Musharraf, a former Pakistan army chief, was now facing a similar fate and had left the country in disgrace. “Now, Musharraf is willing to return to the country, but he cannot… it’s divine retribution for his actions,” Sharif said.

Sharif was toppled by Musharraf in a 1999 coup, after which Sharif and his family went to live in Saudi Arabia. However, Sharif’s assertions were disputed by former Musharraf aide and All Pakistan Muslim League member Ahmed Raza Kasuri, the Dawn reported. “I have been working with General Musharraf for a long time and I have never heard any such thing,” he said.
