    These Militants organizations has badly affected our lives. Most of those killed by the Blasts, Rockets and Bombs by these organizations are we Baloch, so I donot agree with people wh suggest that Balochs are the ardent supporters of these militants. Our people in Khuzdar, Kalat, Pangur, Kech etc are badly affected by the happenings. We are getting crushed between militants and the government.
    Our schools have closed. Our educated people are not safe. However our so called liberators are having fun in Switzerland and London. We will not support any one who kills us, destroy our lives and yet claim to be our saviours. Being from the area, we know how soon these militants have become rich and enjoy their lives in Karachi. Whenever they come back to our area, it is a bad news for us.
