Karachi: A powerful bomb blast ripped through a busy market in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province on Tuesday, killing one person and wounding eight others, police said.

The blast took place in Turbat and a number of vehicles were damaged in the attack.

The bomb was planted in a motorcycle parked outside a shop in Turbat and killed one person and injuring eight others, a senior police official said.

The injured have been shifted to a hospital for treatment, the officer said.

“A number of vehicles have also been damaged in the blast,” he said.

It was yet to be ascertained who was the target of the blast, but all the injured were civilians, police said.

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Alyani condemned the attack, saying “anti-state elements will not be allowed to succeed”.

Militants and separatists belonging to the banned outfits have stepped up terror attacks in Balochistan in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, three soldiers were killed and eight others injured when they were ambushed by terrorists in the Panjgur district of the province.

On June 29, the banned separatist group, the Baluchistan Liberation Army, also carried out a failed terror attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi in which four militants were killed on the spot by security forces. Four security guards, a police sub inspector and two civilians also lost their lives in the attack.

In May, seven soldiers were killed in two separate attacks in the Mach and Kech areas

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 .
