Pakistani state excesses in Balochistan have reached such a point that even some ruling party members are condemning state involvement in the disappearances and killings

In Balochistan, the fire was lit in March 1948 by forcibly annexing it and since then military operations, abductions, killings, intimidation of respected personalities and provocative statements have stoked the fire, which is unlikely to burn out until the Baloch get their rights. The state since 1948 has relied solely on force in Balochistan, addicted to it like all junkies keep increasing the dose hoping for a cure.
In a turnaround, Chief Justice (CJ) Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry who until recently held the Frontier Corps (FC) responsible for the problems in Balochistan, observed on Tuesday that the worsening law and order in Balochistan could be arrested in a week if the FC so desired and also came up with the gem that, “It’s my belief that the situation can be cooled down and they (FC) can solve the problem in seven days.” One does not know whether to laugh or to cry at this naivety but perhaps then it is not naivety but a very calculated statement condoning the tactics that the FC has been employing to crush the Baloch struggle for their rights.

بلوچستان میں ریاست کی زیادتیاں اس حد تک بڑھ چکی ہیں کہ حکمران جماعت کے کچھ ارکان بھی گمشدگیوں اور قتل میں ریاست کے ملوث ہونے کی مذمت کر رہے ہیں
