QUETTA: A large quantity of anti-Pakistan literature as well as maps of a separate Balochistan were recovered during a raid of Attashad Degree College in Turbat district of Balochistan, Express News reported on Monday.

A Baloch student had reportedly taken over a hostel in the college and a Frontier Corps (FC) spokesperson claims he was brainwashing students to conduct acts of terrorism in the country.

The recovered material included separatist leaflets, banners and posters. The books include Nehru and Gandhi’s biographies as well as books about Baloch separation. The books were printed in Karachi and neighbouring countries.

The Frontier Corps had conducted the raid after receiving a tip about the operation. No arrests were made and the student in question fled before the FC arrived.

The FC handed the investigation into the hostel over to the police and more raids will be conducted in the area.

Child tortured

On January 12, the tortured and bullet-riddled body of a 10-year-old was found in Turbat. The victim’s elder brother is a campaigner for the Baloch separatist movement, according to sources.

A Baloch Student Organisation Azad spokesperson accused security agencies of being behind the incident. Security agencies have denied charges of involvement in any illegal detention or dumping of bodies.

Sir, your story only proves my theory that most conflicts in the world are caused due to the cultural divide. India and Pakistan which suffered migration of people uprooted more or less integrated communities and this is what is occurring todate. Mind you, this is no different in other parts of the world either.

@Ex Indian: @Pakistani:

No, I do not know how the wadera culture works, but it certainly doe not exist in air, and if accepted by the locals, why must you squawk? Army does not get a high either by making the lives of people either, but the army has no business to follow the practice of the colonialists eithed. Theirs is not the task of policing nor are they trained for this job. They have caused the separation of Bangla Desh and are on their way to causing the separation of KPK and Baluchistan. Remember, what does not belong to one another can not grow together either. The trees do not grow in the sky.
