Interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has linked Pakistan’s security with peace and stability in Balochistan, saying the state will secure every inch of the province.

“Nobody should have any misconceptions … the state will secure every inch of Balochistan and develop the province,” he said, while addressing the passing out ceremony of the 57th batch of Frontier Corps in Loralai on Saturday, Express News reported.

While terming the future of Pakistan and Balochistan as one, the minister assured that the province will be developed and “ulterior motives of the enemy will be thwarted”.

The minister also highlighted that the region, which is rich in resources, has the entire world’s attention, but belongs to Baloch people and to Pakistan.

Acknowledging the role of security personnel in maintaining law and order and safeguarding Pakistan, Nisar reminded them that their role was not only to fight terror but also to win the hearts of people.

Paying tribute to more than “650 martyrs of the force” who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty, Nisar said, “We are indebted to these brave sons of soil.”

    “The minister also highlighted that the region, which is rich in resources, has the entire attention of the world” so I guess that’s why these Indians and other enemies of Pakistan are showing fake sympathies with baloch just like they did with bengalis after fuelling terrorism in East Pakistan just like they’re doing now in Pakistan today. I wonder why our media doesn’t ignite little media light to the persecuted occupied states in India such as manipur, khalistan and goa which wasn’t even part of British raj. We gave Intel about khalistan leaders to Raw and even today they’re sheltering bla terrorist at their home? Should we get a dictionary to these Indians that who is fuelling terrorism? It has worse ties with all of its neighbors.Recommend

    If Pakistanis think that using air force fighter jets and helicopter gunships will break the spirits of freedom loving balochs, they are mistaken. India will stand with them as it had stood with the Bengalis against Pakistani Punjab’s imperialism.Recommend

    Territories are secured by governments through good governance. An unhappy and disgruntled citizenry guarantees insecurity and finally disintegration of the state itself. The minister might wish to go back to the most basic principles of political science and if that is too much for him then he is advised to let his staff refresh his memories about the fate of our resolve to ensure our territorial integrity in the once East Pakistan through security forces while ignoring wishes and welfare of our citizens inhabiting those territories.Recommend
