QUETTA: Nine people were killed in an exchange of fire between two groups on the border of Sindh and Balochistan, Express News reported on Sunday.

Balochistan Interior Minister Sarfaraz Bugti told the Express News that the dead include a peace force officer, two suspects and six civilians.

    As an Indian Muslim, I’m glad my grandparents didn’t make the mistake of migrating to Pakistan during partition.

    Jai Hind!

    As a grandson of a migrant from India in 1947, I am glad that my grandparents decided to migrate to Pakistan. The people of Pakistan received migrants with open arms. Just for the sake of record, Nawaz Sharif current Primeminister, former Army cheif and president Pervaiz Musharaf, Former army chief and president Zia ul haq and mny others, were sons of migrants from India. I never saw any Indian muslim reaching at such an authoritative and top post. Only one example is Abdul Kalam, president, which is ceremonial post with no authority. I think you will also retire as a major, Major Iqbal…
    Pakistan is going through a bad patch, no doubt..but inshaAllah we will bounce back soon.

    @Salman:
    To add what you said:
    We were able to get compensation for the property we left behind in India and we have prospered here and are very happy. Pakistanis are going through the pains of growing up and insha’Allah we shall overcome our problems.
