LAHORE - Following series of attacks on Chinese Consulate in Karachi and Chabahar, Iran, India has reportedly shifted commander BLA Aslam alias Achchu to Kandahar, Afghanistan.

“India is surely trying to distance itself from BLA,” Overseas Pakistani Baloch Unity’s founder Dr Jumma Khan Marri posted on his Facebook account on Sunday, adding that there were reports that India had shifted the BLA commander to Afghanistan.

According to Marri, it is an attempt by India to cover up its covert support to the BLA since it had also cancelled the so-called human rights conference planned to be held in New Delhi.

Previously a Baloch nationalist leader, Jumma Khan Marri had announced his dissociation from the Baloch separatists in February this year. He had then also launched an organisation, ‘Overseas Pakistani Baloch Community’ for the Baloch living abroad.

“Once again, I request all Baloch to wake up before it is too late... Soon you all will be dumped too by India. No one else is more sincere with you than Pakistan. Remember “United we stand, divided we fall”. Dr Jumma Khan posted on his Facebook account yesterday.

It may be recalled here that Dr Jumma had an important meeting with Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan last week in Moscow when the latter was on official visit to Russia.

Dr Marri had then also suggested that Pakistan government should make a formal demand with United Kingdom to stop providing safe haven to BLA’s commander Harbiyar Marri. While pledging to voice his concerns on this issue in the European Parliament as he had done earlier, Dr Marri had also asked the Pakistan government to raise this issue at the United Nations.

Dr Marri is hopeful that some prominent Baloch leaders would soon be joining the mainstream Pakistani politics by declaring disassociation with anti-Pakistani forces.

He says that his new organisation would confront and expose the evil designs of disgruntled Baloch leaders such as Brahamdagh Bugti, Mehran Marri and Harbiyar Marri who, according to him, are on the Indian payroll.

Dr Marri also has plans to bring back all the misguided and innocent Baloch living abroad on political asylum to the mainstream politics.
