Unquestionably, the United States Congressional act of hearing on Balochistan is an 'ill-advised and ill-considered' move as declared by Pakistani Ambassador to US, Ms Sherry Rehman. This act of US Congressmen is a direct involvement in the internal affairs of Pakistan. Balochistan Province is indeed half of Pakistan and no one in the world has the right to debate or discuss any part of Pakistan. Such an act is against the international norms, UN Charter, the concept of nation state and over and above the international law. This is the exclusive right of Pakistani nationals, its law makers and the elected representatives of the state. Certainly, this US Congressional act will have serious repercussions for the Pak-US relationship. It is very unfortunate on the part of this super power and so-called Pakistani ally that its law makers dared to debate on a part of Pakistan. As a nation, Pakistani condemns this US Congressmen act and hope that US would apologise for this unprecedented act of interference.
Owing to its geo-strategic and geo-economic significance, U.S think tanks and CIA has been covertly debating and planning about the future of the Balochistan province of Pakistan since last many years. In fact, this almost 43 percent territory of Pakistan is considered to have huge quantity of hydrocarbons and other minerals including very costly one like gold and copper deposits. Since the location of this province is a gateway, linking various regions of Asia either through sea or overland, therefore, global powers of their times have always kept eyes on the Balochistan since centuries. This was true for Tsarist Russia and British India and now the sole super power, the United States. Being significantly located, the province gained enhanced attention in the recent years, mainly because of the rapidly changing global and regional political and security situation. Securing the resource game has further enhanced the importance of this province and Pakistan.
Apparently, the rapidly escalating US-Iran confrontation and ever growing Pak-China relationship are two significant aspects which might have impelled United State's law makers to rapidly divulge their long term evil designs, otherwise have been debated secretly among the US close circles for years. We must be mindful that as a policy, US State Department (White House) and Pentagon never accept the responsibility of any such act of their think tanks, law makers and even their media and writers. But, this is also a essential part of US strategy that it encourages and finances its think tanks, law makers, media and individual writers to initate a debate and get feed back about an act US has to take in future. This indeed is an exercise US carries out to change the public perception. This should be kept in mind that, this is joint US strategy; the State Department, Pentagon and CIA are unanimous on this strategy. US has been doing this ever since the end of WW-II.
Terrorism in Afghanistan and WMD in Iraq together with human rights and democratic agendas, which led to US invasion in these two independent countries are very recent examples to quote. In the process of these debates, state agents mostly CIA operatives, hire the locals, particularly notables of the areas, pay them heavily and exploit them subsequently, thus paving way for the accomplishment of the evil designs of this super power. As parallel developments, through well orchestrated strategies, these agents go all out to change the public perceptions in the favour of their debates. These malevolence strategies are designed so well that, the people of the area get an impression as if they have really found their saviours, who would improve their living standards in the days to come. Those show any reservations and reluctance to the hidden agendas, are then put through the miseries through their locally hired agents, working for them for few dollars. Those who prove more hardened to follow their script and agenda, are then put through torture and subsequent brutal murders, later putting blame on the local government, intelligence agencies and security forces with an intent to defame them. This is not enough; in order to provoke anti-state feelings at an even higher degree some of the antistate elements are also killed. This indeed is done to give the entire process a realistic touch and such acts are repeated for longer and deeper impact.
During this exercise, some of those are also killed who tend to deviate their format and try to get back to their patriotic obligations. Indeed, their murders are committed more brutally and inhumanly to make them examples for rest of the people, who may think of going back to join the ranks and file of patriotic ones and may have tried to leak out these foreign conspiracies to others and government officials and agencies. In the absence of available facts and realistic view, these murders are then exploited to create more hatred among those still standing at fence with neutral thoughts.
As globally known, they have devised new methods of murdering the people in a more inhuman way and their disfigured bodies (after inhumanly killing) are then thrown to public places for creating either more anti-state emotions among the patriotic people or else to bring these events in a broader canvas through highly biased US and Western media to defame the state, its intelligence agencies and security forces. All aims to present the state's failure to protect the people of this God gifted province of Pakistan. These agents, who at times have two or more faces; a hidden one of being a CIA operatives and overt one either; as a law maker, member of think tank, media group, an analyst and a writer and at time the members of very humanistic NGOs.
The game does not stop here. They, having the warmth of dollars behind, have been showering these dollars to some of very powerful people in Pakistan. Those who have been blessed with US appreciations and rain of unlimited dollars, include prominent media men, scholars, think tanks, politicians and even academicians. They keep praising the US acts while maligning Pakistani security forces and ISI on the behest of United States. For them dollars and US blessing and more frequent visits to US and Western institutions are more important then the national interest and being proud of being a Pakistani.
The question arises, why as a nation Pakistan is failing to make public the US and other's evil designs against the state of Pakistan. Why the think tanks, academicians, media and above all the politicians are not united against these growing conspiracies. It is very easy for them to point fingers against their own security forces and ISI, but they are unable to unveil the real actors, who kill Pakistani national mostly Baloch masses for the implementation of their agendas by creating the hate among the people.
Why Najam Sethi met US councilor in Lahore and many others are meeting the agents elsewhere in Pakistan and even New Delhi.
The people should think for the future of Pakistan, rather be operative of other agencies. Since US agenda is unveiling clearly, therefore, the governemnt should formulate a practicable national strategy to counter this and all those who eat in US plates.
