Mir Hazar Khan: A snapshot from history

Mir Hazar Khan , a lieutenant of Khair Baksh Marri, who led the insurgency in the Marri area until 1976, when he left for Afghanistan but continued to direct actions from there. "The Pakistan Army had meanwhile profited from the gift of thirty Huey Cobra helicopter gunships from Iran, which was fearful of the potential spill over of the uprising in Pakistani Baluchistan into Iranian Baluchistan. The army used these gunships against the people of the Marri tribe (including women and children) who had taken refuge in the Chamalang Valley on 3 September 1974. This action drew the Marri fighters down from their hideouts in the hills and a three day battle ensued in which the heavily out gunned Marris suffered grievously ".

Hong Kong pushing for regional AIIB office, says finance chief Proposal has received a ‘positive’ response from Beijing, according to Paul Chan Mo-po Catherine Wong UPDATED : Sunday, 18 Jun 2017, 10:58AM  5 Hong Kong, which last week joined the Beijing-led Asian ­Infrastructure Investment Bank by agreeing to pay US$155 million over five years, is now lobbying the AIIB to set up a regional office in the city, Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po told the  Sunday Morning Post  on Saturday. Speaking on the sidelines of the two-day AIIB annual meeting on the South Korean resort island of Jeju, Chan said Hong Kong was also seeking to become an alternate governor on the bank’s board, which would give the city a bigger say in the institution. The AIIB is Beijing’s answer to the Asian Development Bank led by Japan and the World Bank, which is heavily influenced by the United States. Chan said Hong Kong had made its wishes clear to AIIB

Fast Momentum Of China's Silk Road Push Helps Its Appeal, Jenny Shipley Says Russell Flannery Former New Zealand Prime Minister Jenny Shipley discussed China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative in Hangzhou on Saturday, June 17. The speed with which China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative has attracted interest and resources is helping to fuel its appeal to nations, former New Zealand Prime Minister Jenny Shipley said on Saturday at a conference in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou. China’s effort “has gone out of the blocks and onward much more quickly than most global institutional ideas,” Shipley said. “That agility, I think, has excited people, and that’s different” from a lot of the World War II-era international institutions set up under the Bretton Wood agreements to help facilitate global growth, she said.  “It’s not only the quality of the idea but the speed with which capital and resources

Belt and Road Initiative offers chance to forge China-LatAm 'community' Xinhua | Updated: 2017-06-17 17:27 BEIJING — Around 440 years ago, two Chinese galleons sailed into the Mexican port of Acapulco, laden with prized goods from the Orient, including 23,730 meters of silk fabrics and 22,300 pieces of porcelain made in China, as well as ivory, lacquerware and Asian spices. The two merchant ships carrying Chinese goods were also known as the Manila Galleons because they set sail from Manila, the current capital of the Philippines, and their arrival mirrored the very early days of the brisk trans-Pacific trade between Asia and Latin America. After their cargo was unloaded, the galleons returned from Acapulco, carrying goods from the New World, such as silver, cacao, maize, potatoes and tomatoes. This trade route was an extension of China's ancient Maritime Silk Route, and formed a key part of the glorious history of trade between China and the rest of the world. Nowadays, China

HSBC’s take on the Belt and Road Initiative View(s): 46 Back in 2014, when HSBC first started writing about China’s plan to build a New Silk Road along the centuries-old trading routes, it was little more than a bold idea. Three years on, what has generally come to be known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), is being billed by President Xi Jinping as “the project of the century”, encompassing about 63 per cent of the world’s population and 29 per cent of global GDP, according to an HSBC research report. It said last month, China announced an additional US$136 billion of funding support for BRI related infrastructure projects. Aside from signalling Beijing’s commitment to the BRI, it also reflects a growing need. The Asia Development Bank (ADB) estimates that emerging Asia will require about $22.6 trillion of infrastructure investment between 2016 and 2030, or $1.5 trillion a year. No single source of funding can meet the

India on Thursday raised the issue of Balochistan at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva and urged the UN body to take a "clear-cut stance" against atrocities committed by Pakistan, adding that the people of the state are “waging for decades a bitter and brave struggle against daily abuse”. The Indian delegation also slammed Pakistan for raking up Jammu and Kashmir at the UNHRC for propagandist purposes, reminding Islamabad of its obligation under UN resolutions to first vacate the illegal occupation of the Indian state. Exercising India's fourth right of reply, the delegation said, "Islamabad has had territorial ambitions over the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir since 1947. It has been using this forum to rake up the issue while it has a poor

Tarek Fateh must educate Panjabis instead of Baloch and Indians Tarek Fateh must educate Panjabis instead of Baloch and Indians-By : Sobdar Baloch  JUN 17, 2017 102 views  0  admin This is unbelievable that today the majority of Panjabis living in Panjab province and abroad are unaware about Pakistan army’s terrorism on  # BalochSoil . In fact they are deliberately facilitating their army and ISI to strengthen  # BalochGenocide  so they rule Balochistan further in the future. What is the responsibility of Panjabi intellectual? A Panjabi from Panjab province must think why his people in Panjab are ignoring Baloch genocide, why the majority of Panjabis cheers when a Baloch activist is killed or abducted by the ISI? The London group of 1970’s comprised of Najam Sethi, Rashed Rehman, Asad Rehman and few others must have started awareness campaign in Panjab province because the only people must be educated are actually the panjabis th

Mis-Perception Against Pakistan’s Nuclear Tests – OpEd  June 17, 2017   Anaya Shahid*   By  Anaya Shahid* Recently, Shah Meer Baloch  wrote , what seemed a politically influenced article for the Diplomat. It starts with an intuitive statement; which is merely a narrative of a group in population across Baluchistan and not even properly substantiated. Author portray as if the district or entire provincial population is affected by the 28th May 1998 Chagai nuclear tests’ radiation release. Then how ironic is that Pakistan and China are building there most expensive infrastructure project, CPEC, in a radiation rich region. After reading the article the first thing that comes into your mind is that Kulbhushan and Indian backed terrorist groups were wearing gas masks, during planning and executing their sabotage plots in the Baluchistan. Factually, there is no radiation exposure in the area; neither in Chagai nor in nearby areas. Without representing

Pakistan has made Balochistan 'hell on Earth': Baloch activist Mengal ANI | Geneva [Switzerland] Jun 17, 2017 06:30 PM IST Baloch activist Munir Mengal has said that Pakistan has made Balochistan a "hell on Earth". Speaking during the ongoing 35th session of the Human Rights Council here, Mengal said that despite Pakistan's lofty rhetoric of promoting and protecting human rights of its citizens, "the degree and the extent of suffering and repression experienced by the Baloch people under the brutal control of the Islamic state is equivalent to being as a hell on Earth". He alleged that all opinions and viewpoints in Balochistan that contradict Pakistan's position on any issue are considered as "subversive" and any information which directly or indirectly concerns the governance, policies and activities of Pakistan are viewed as "state secret". Mengal noted that Baloch

Putting all its eggs in CPEC basket will jeopardise Pakistan's economy, warns IMF By AFP | Jun 17, 2017, 06.48 PM IST However the IMF warned in a report on Friday that macroeconomic stability gains have started to erode and could pose risks to the economic outlook. ISLAMABAD:The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said the outlook for Pakistan's economy  was "favourable", citing Chinese infrastructure  investments among reasons for growth, but warned of risks to recent progress.  Confidence in insurgency-hit Pakistan is growing, with the IMF saying last year that the country had emerged from crisis and stabilised its economy after completing a bailout programme.  However the IMF warned in a report on Friday that macroeconomic stability gains have started to erode and could pose risks to the economic outlook.  " Pakistan's outlook for economic growth is favourable, with real GDP estimated at 5.3 percent in ..

Hazar Khan and Sardar Coterie

What is Paris? ... Where nobody throws stones, for all live in glass houses. Also Remember: People who live in glass houses can see you masturbating in their bushes. Three Sardar Families ( Marri,Mengal, Bugti) are relatives by marriage, infact they are one family. The Baloch resistance movement is in the hands of these families, however no one question their extended family members , brothers, cousins, relatives are also in Pakistani Government sharing power. These families have their own grudge against Hazar Khan Marri and his family. Sardar stooges often show pictures of Hazar Khan with Nawaz Shariff on social media and try to prove they are Basra pearls washed in milk. Below are few pictures which show how Sardar family members cozy up with Pakistani Politicians and take part in Government activities. If anyone raise this , a standard answer comes form them is , "we disown them". However the same logic don't work for others. This is the irony of Sardars. In the pa

US announces inter-agency review of support to Pakistan

WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, while describing the aspersions of a congressman about Pakistan’s alleged links to terrorism as ‘well-founded’, has announced an inter-agency review of US funding and support to Pakistan. The remarks — at a budget hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week — give a rare insight into the Trump administration’s views on Pakistan. Although in power for the last six months, the administration has been unusually silent on US-Pakistan relations. Secretary Tillerson’s declaration and comments by some lawmakers — both included in a transcript released on Thursday — led the media to speculate that the review may cause further reduction in already dwindling US aid to Pakistan.
