Embassy rejects US Congressman's resolution on Balochistan, terms it 'ill-informed and unacceptable'.

WASHINGTON: Reacting strongly to a US Congressman’s introduction of a resolution on Balochistan, the Pakistani Embassy rejected the move as “ill-informed and unacceptable”.

“We reject this ill-informed move and the Congressman’s misplaced concern on Balochistan, which is a part of the Pakistani Federation,” the Embassy said, commenting on Representative Dana Rohrabacher’s move in the House on the rights of the people of Balochistan.

A statement issued by the Embassy reminded sponsors of the move that Balochistan has a “directly elected provincial assembly of its own and has due representation in the National Assembly and the Senate of Pakistan.”

“The resolution seeks to cast doubt on the territorial integrity of a member of the United Nations and a friend of the United States, and is totally unacceptable.”

The Pakistani Embassy made it clear that “Balochistan’s affairs and issues are an internal matter of Pakistan, and it is for the people of Pakistan and our democratic institutions to address these [issues].”

“We would advise those behind this resolution to reserve their concern and solicitude for problems closer to home. Needless to say, provocations such as these will seriously impact the Pakistan-US relations. We value this relationship but not at the cost of our dignity, sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the Embassy statement added.

    why don’t the american congressmen ever pass a resolution condemning the deliberate murders of punjabi and urdu speaking civilians in balochistan? why this onesided treatment of the balochistan issue by the americans? why are they only mourning the deaths of the militants killed in balochistan,where are the condemnations for the people killing doctors,teachers,laborers,barbers in balochistan on the basis of their being punjabis? our own media has also shown a very biased attitude,it holds no talkshows,it prints no editorials,opinion pieces on the ethnic cleansing of punjabi civilians in balochistan.

    But still we cannot deprive Balochs of their basic rights. We should admit this fact that our establishment is equally responsible of worsening conditions in Balochistan. If now they hate Punjabis and establishment then they have a justification behind it. Apart, there own leaders also done nothing for them. But now some responsible leader like Nawaz Sharif should rise his voice against this militancy, violance, lawlessness and extra judicial killings in Balochistan.

    We already read a lot of CIA map for division of Pakistan by 2015. We also know how good US in meeting its deadline. Pakistan was too sleepy up till now. Thanks to Musharaf who wrongly assured Pakistanis that US will not bit us again. If Musharaf is hanged, I think Baluchistan might forgive Pakistan for other crimes. There is enough to judge two faces of US and I hope its not too late to show US our back this time.

    Americans will continue to do the same. Remember they have already published the new map of Pakistan which shows Baluchistan, Karachi and pakhtun areas as separate entities. Ideally they would love to drive this region into chaos and establishing smaller states and creating local warlords who are much easier to deal with than a ‘rogue Army and its nefarious ISI’. The question is what are our leaders doing and when will they finally awake to address the issue by doing something concrete and substantial?

    The FC of Pakistan is only doing their job upholding the dignity, sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan. The USA is ill-informed about the bonhomie and mutual respect shared between the ordinary Balochis and FC. For many years they have had friendly exchanges and useful dialogue, celebrated festivals together with firecrackers. Only recently the CIA & Mossad’s dirty games have caused a little bit of misunderstanding. Pakistan’s media can play a vital role in sorting out the misunderstanding by holding lengthy on air debates about cultivating true Islamic values of compassion and generosity among the few misled Baloch freedom fighters. The world needs the cooperation and friendship of Pakistan more than a bunch of disillusioned people living in arid, desolate places.

    I thoroughly enjoy the reactions from Pakistan. It’s funny. First, we can talk about what we want and nobody cares if you like it or not. Plenty of things get talked about. That’s how judgment of “good ideas” and “bad ideas” occur. Second, you have nothing to worry about if the people of Balochistan agree with Pakistan’s stance.
    No matter what the talking amounts to, if Balochistan itself doesn’t agree, it can’t go anywhere. If Balochistan does agree, you brought it on yourselves. Sovereignty is only as official as the majority of the world recognizes and allows it. The one claiming the existence of that sovereignty as their own means nothing. If the world doesn’t think you should have it, it’s gone, and it being gone means every single law or rule you can quote becomes invalid. So it’s a choice between treating people right or not being in a position of where you can mistreat them. Your choice. Nobody will have sympathy for the ones mistreating people.

Now they are making inroads into Baluchistan, they have already done that, only thing is left is that they are fueling the fire in baluchistan, to make it more intense, as i just got the news that Blast kills 2 in Dera Bugti, they are staring it. they never passed a resolution in congress about indian occupation forces were committing great genocide in occupied Kashmir. but i dare all americans, u will fail and u will fall, we are united and ready for war with u.

    Pakistan supports the rights of Kashmiris, Chechens, and Palestinians for self-determination. So what’s so different about the Baluchis? If India can be divided, Russia can be divided, Israel can be divided, what’s so different about Pakistan that it is not indivisible. After all the Baluchis are quite right in demanding for their freedom. They have after all suffered worse indignities as compared to Kashmiris, Palestinians and Chechens. Or is it that non-Muslims nations could be divided up, but Muslim lands cannot be?

    I support the US Lawmakers in their efforts to support the proud people of Baluchistan and I call on all Indians to do the same.

Our gas powers your homes and industry by the gas pipelines going all the way to punjab and sindh but we dont even have gas pipes coming to our home. Our brothers,sons and fathers are picked up tortured and killed like animals.
    Please brothers, think about how balochistan is different than kashmir. In both cases a minority, the rajah of kashmir and khan of kalat sold their respective people’s future without consulting the majority of people.

    Though Pakistan might feel aggrieved of US highlighting the Balochistan problem at the international level but it cannot justify hundreds of Balochis being abducted and later killed by its security forces on regular basis whereas the international community cannot keep its eyes closed to gross violation of human rights. Pakistan needs to take corrective actions immediately before it gets isolated completely and declared as a failed nation which appears to be on the cards since the only super-power is persuing it so vigorously.

    the most interesting thing of this bill is the timing: iranian president is on an official trip to pakistan. pakistan is willing participate in the gas pipeline project and russia and china are playing a much greater role in the world politics for instance russia vetoes the bill against syria in UN.

    there’s shift of power from west to east. US-PAK alliance is breaking apart, AF-PAK-IRAN-RUSSIA-CHINA are coming closer.

    US has no interest in the human rights violation. they are themselves the worst oppressors.

    Its about time the establishment of pakistan should clean their home.

    Finally, Pakistan is moving away from US.

    Bold move by US lets see how things unfold in future.

    You might get your wish. They might table a resolution to force Pakistan to restore POK and GB to 1947 status. If you havn’t paid attention – there was news which spoke about Pakistan leasing GB to China.

    it was all expected,all patriots have reservations on this US congressman bill,severe reactions have been registering by Pakistanis which of course a natural reaction of a Pakistani,but the question here arises what should we do now to avoid this American trick, our enemies constantly building and maintaining instability in our region. we should take this resolution as a wake up call, we should not forget our history since we lost our East Pakistan in 1971. we should learn from history,and steps should be taken to not only stop america by its ill intentions but also to maintain peace in Baloshistan.

    @Pakistan politics.

    Responses are not enough, strong
    message should be given by actions not

    What do you suggest? You have already effectively cut off cooperation – closed down the drone base & cut off NATO aid – you have run out of the limited things the Pakistan actually contributed to the alliance and now have no leverage. Are you going to start a war or just send them back the aid money and F16’s they gave you?

    Pakistan has always been ruled by Punjab elite. Sindhis come and grab certain jobs when in power without merrit. NWFP/KPK has always remained on the side of Punjabis. Balochistan has remained the cash cow for all of them. Although Sindh also produces significant natural gas and petroleum but the but is still produced in Balochistan. All provinces believe that Punjab usurps the rights of the rest by holding the real power and control. Therefore, an atmosphere of mistrust has been built for long. Now major foreign powers are playing a role to ignite to their advantage. BUt as we have incompetent, shortsighted rulers at the helm we will suffer. God forbid it may one day lead to the Balkanisation of Pakistan.

    It is obvious – India has its evil eye on Balochistan, target killing and staging a fake unrest through its propaganda war. But watch out Indians, we Baloch people are populated in the Pakistan military and will see that you Indians do not escape with your evil war on Pakistan sneaking through the Baloch corridor.

    What a furious reactions from Pakistani brothers!!!
    I can now try to imagine what reaction it had been from people supporting ‘Akhand Bharat’ when India – Pakistan partitioned in 1947.
    The same reaction i see from many Indians when sombody support Kashmir independence.
    Either we (Indians & Pakistanis) are emotionally same or this is normal human tendancy to cry loud for piece of land rather than for people of that land.

    This is an excellent move that is becoming of a great world power like the US.

    The uneding tragedy of Balochistan must not be looked through the prism of narrow India-Pak conflict. Clearly Balochi people have suffered beyond all measure for far longer than any other. They have won the right to world’s attention and active help in finding their own space and in breathing their own free air, and most importantly, in using their own resources for the upliftment of their masses. The era of exploitative colonialism through force and misuse of education is long over.

    We must prepare for similar future activity in neighboring countries.
    After Pak-Balochistan Indian provinces & Irani Balochistan that don’t get their share will follow suite. Once India is broken into ten pieces it will be free trade & welfare for their neglected poor. Pakitan will have less to worry about and now have more time to pay attention to neighbors.
    The Baloch leaders who now become sheikhs will start their own war for wealth by each ethnicity__ pulled ofcouse in different direction by India, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The resources Baloch leaders could not share with Pakistan now being exported & all wealth stays overseas.
    India now capture & control the Baloch market before it had a chance to flourish on it’s own. The poor Baloch will still live in poverty like Indians do but instead here in the desertland of Balochistan while their Sheikhs fly in jets. Pakistan now become more stronger & free & so is a bigger threat to India.
