Balochistan plans stricter steps on virus


QUETTA: Provincial Home Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove has said that despite repeated appeals by the government, people are not taking preventive measures and a serious situation may prompt the authorities to take more stringent decisions.

Talking to reporters at Manan Chowk on Monday, he said that the provincial government was considering taking more strict steps to restrict the movement of the people.

Quetta Deputy Commissioner retired Major Aurangzeb Badini, Quetta Metropolitan Corporation Administrator Tariq Javed Mengal, EPI’s Manager Dr Kamalan Gichki and other authorities concerned were also present on the occasion. The home minister also visited different parts of the city.

Mr Langove said the present government was doing their best to prevent the possible spread of the coronavirus and to protect the lives and property of the people and that was why a partial lockdown was adopted in the city.

“The purpose of the partial lockdown of the city is to save the public. However, the precautionary measures are not being adopted by the masses, therefore, the government will have to make a big decision in this regard,” he added.

He said that important decisions would be made after Balochistan chief minister Jam Kamal returned to the provincial capital.

Responding to a question, he said the Pakistan Army had always supported the country and the people in difficult times and was still ready to deal with any kind of situation.

To another query, he said the arrival of pilgrims had been completed and now a policy was being devised for the return of businessmen and students who were still in Iran.

Meanwhile, the Balochistan government was strictly implementing its decision of lockdown in Quetta and other districts of the province and sealed many shops and markets found violating the government’s orders.

All shopping malls, markets, shops, bazaars and business centres remained completely closed. The inter-provincial and inter-city transport also remained closed.

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 .
