QUETTA  : Over 150 Hindu pilgrims stranded in flash floods in Kachhi district of Balochistan since Saturday morning have been rescued.

The Balochistan government, Pakistan Army and Frontier Corps jointly conducted the successful overnight rescue operation and escorted the pilgrims to Gandawa for the Annual Baisakhi Festival.

Talking to the media, Kachhi Deputy Commissioner Mir Sultan Bugti said, “District administration officers, FC, Pak Army and Levies personnel participated in the rescue operation and saved 150 Hindu pilgrims stranded in flash floods caused by torrential rains.

“The rescued pilgrims spent some time at their Gurdwara in Gandawa and were later transported to Shoran [an area of the Kachhi district] by passenger coaches.”

Bugti said three helicopters of the Pak Army participated in the rescue operation.

At least 150 pilgrims from Sindh and Balochistan provinces came to attend the Annual Baisakhi Festival, but got stranded in flash floods in Kachhi.

They

were stuck in the mountainous areas of Kachhi and could not reach out for help due to lack of mobile signals.

Sources said timely action by the government saved the lives of the Hindu pilgrims.

Member of provincial assembly Dinesh Kumar said, “Fortunately, all Hindu pilgrims have been rescued safely and shifted to safe places. Condition of them all is stable. Most have reached home while some are on their way.”

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
