Pashtun and Baloch students protested in front of Multan press club on Thursday

According to details received by The Balochistan Post, Pashtun and Baloch students carried out a joint protest in Multan.

The protest was against the killing of Superintendent of Police, Tahir Dawar and enforced disappearances of Baloch and Pashtun people.

Superintendent of police (SP) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Tahir Dawar was first reported missing from his Islamabad residence on October 26 and on November 14, the Afghan government confirmed the discovery of a body along with the service card of SP Tahir Dawar.

A press release by Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the Pakistan Embassy in Kabul that locals had found the body in Dur Baba district of Nangarhar province a day earlier.

The Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), an organisation striving against the enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings of Pashtun people in Pakistan, had already announced countrywide protests against Tahir’s murder.

PTM alleges that Pakistan army and intelligence agencies are responsible for enforced disappearances.

“We are determined to question and protest this murder in such a forceful way that this state is going to remember it forever,” Mohsin Dawar said.

Mohsin represents Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan tribal district in Pakistani Parliament and also a senior member of PTM.

Including PTM, many Pashtun leaders hold Pakistan state responsible for the murder of Tahir Dawar.

During the protest in Multan, student speakers said that ‘the purpose of protesting here today is to tell the people to raise their voice against enforced disappearances and extra-judicial killings of Baloch and Pashtuns’.

Balochistan is also plagued by the enforced disappearances of Baloch youth and activists. Recent instances of ‘women and children abductions’ have also been reported.

International rights organizations have termed the extra-judicial killing of Baloch missing persons as the ‘Kill and Dump’ policy of Pakistani forces to subdue the uprising in Balochistan.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
