Pakistani Army treating PoK inhabitants brutally: Parrikar

Panaji: Kashmiris should be made aware of the brutal atrocities committed by the Pakistan army on civilians in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has said.

Parrikar accused the country’s western neighbour of continuing to push terrorists into India and said its role as a breeder of terror should be exposed before a global audience.

Parrikar, who was speaking during a public interaction meet late on Sunday evening near here, also hinted that the National Democratic Alliance government had Pakistan worried.

“We need to bring it to their (Kashmiris) notice. How brutally the Pakistan army is treating the population in PoK? I don’t know after that if they will ever think of Pakistan because they are proud people. They have to be told that their brothers, and sisters, who are also a part of India, are being brutally treated,” he said.

The defence minister said that India had to adopt a multi-pronged strategy with regard to Pakistan, one that included brute force vis-a-vis dealing with terror as well as political tact.

You find kids being murdered, butchered in Peshawar. You find people going to mosques for prayers being killed. Killing is almost everywhere in Pakistan. I think these are poisonous fruits, seeds of which were sown by them. They should realise that the hate India campaign will not provide any solution, he said.

Parrikar also said that Pakistan continues to send terrorists into India using cross-border firing as a decoy.

“Most of the times, the ceasfire violation is to ensure that some terrorists are pushed to the Indian side. This is a cover up…” he said.

Asked whether the troika of Narendra Modi as prime minister, Manohar Parrikar as Defence Minister and Ajit Doval as National Security Advisor could have had Pakistan worried, the former Goa chief minister said: “I think some aspects should be understood by symptoms. The worry can be seen on their faces and when they talk. I don’t have to explain anything beyond that.”

Panaji, Sep 15 (IANS) One blanket solution for a problem can never work for the whole country, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday, underlining that the Supreme Court order last year banning the sale of liquor 500 metres from highways was one such solution.

“Be it legislation, judiciary or government, we think that one type, one bracketed solution is appropriate for all problems… (But) What may be good in New Delhi may not be good in Goa. It may be actually negative in Goa. It will not work in Goa,” Parrikar said.

“One solution cannot be there for the nation,” he said.

Parrikar was speaking on the concluding day of a two-day conference near Panaji on ‘Good Governance and Replication of Best Practices’ organised by the Central Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances.

Commenting on the apex court’s order banning alcohol sale along highways, Parrikar said: “The basic logic was punish a drunk driver. After the order I found many drunk drivers carrying bottles. Earlier two pegs or three pegs was what they took, now they drink a bottle. Now they carry (bottles).”

“Punish a drunk driver… The positive aspect is considered. But at the same time one solution cannot be there for the nation,” he said.

The former Defence Minister said while many legislations may induce good governance, they also “induce certain negativity”. “Despite of that, I feel that these acts are necessary,” Parrikar said. (source:IANS)

Since then, Pakistan army and intelligence services are carrying out a scorched earth policy in France-sized Balochistan that has seen 7,000 killed in Nawab Bugti’s ancestral Dera Bugti and Sui areas alone. Thousands of more Baloch have been killed elsewhere in Balochistan. At least 8,000 remain victims of enforced disappearances while over 1,500 Baloch activists were killed and dumped by the Pakistani security forces in recent years. Hundreds of thousands of Baloch tribesmen fled their homes to become internally displaced persons within Pakistan. As many as 12,000 Bugti tribesmen are still living in Afghanistan without any status.

According to press release , while the Pakistan army and Chinese are busy trying to wrest control of the key Gwadar port under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor and exploring for fossil fuel and natural resources deep inside the virgin lands of Balochistan, the Deep State of Pakistan is promoting the ISIS in Balochistan for its long term strategic interests.

Strict checking will be in force to keep out folks sent by Pakistan embassy to disrupt Baloch events. Less than two weeks ago, a twitter account close to Pakistan’s Deep State threatened Afghanistan with dire consequences as the Afghan Students Association had sponsored an AFB event “Untold Story: What’s happening in Balochistan” at the Marvin Center, George Washington University

The event will start at the Murrow Room of the National Press Club in Washington DC at 2.30 pm. on Aug 25, 2017.
