QUETTA - The political leaders and lawyers community in Balochistan have showed their strong resentment over the policy statement of Adviser to PM on Interior Rehman Malik regarding Balochistan in the Senate. They said that making such statement was tantamount to rub salt on the wounds of Baloch people at this critical juncture. 'Those who themselves are agents of US have no right to brand others as agents, they added. Criticising the statement of Rehman Malik, Secretary General National Party Tahir Bizenjo alleged that adviser had openly distorted the facts and labeled Baloch nationalists agents of India and Russia. He said in 1973 the Parliament was briefed at the same manner in which leaders of NAP including Khan Abdul Wali Khan, Mir Ghous Bakhsh Bizinjo, Sardar Attaullah and Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri were declared agents of Afghanistan and former Soviet Union and later their govt was dissolved. Referring to Ghulam Muhammad Baloch, he said that neither Sher Muhammad Baloch was Iranian nor Ghulam Muhammad Baloch was wanted in Iran or other country. 'They were politicians and native people of Balochistan who were struggling for the rights of Baloch people through political means, he added. Commenting over the statement, Senior Vice President Balochistan National Party Doctor Jehanzaib Jamaldini said that PPP govt was providing a safe passage to State agencies which according to him were behind the killings of Baloch leaders. 'It is crystal clear that Sher Muhammad Baloch belonged to Tump area of Turbat district and Ghulam Muhammad was not wanted in Iran, he said ,adding,that defending intelligence agencies by Rehman Malik was aimed at misleading the world community and humanitarian organisations. He alleged the PPP was pursuing the policies of former President Pervez Musharraf who had charged Nawabzada Balach Marri of leading Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and now PPP was linking Brahamdagh Bugti with BLA. Provincial President Pakhtoon Khuwa Milli Awami Party Usman Kakar said that it had become tradition of our country that whoever voiced for his rights rulers had termed him traitor. He said previously President Asif Ali Zardari sought apology from Baloch people for the injustices committed by former govt while the recent statement of Rehman Malik was totally opposite Presidents views. He was of the view that until and unless Federal govt provides maximum autonomy and right of ownership to all nationalities living in the country over their resources the problems would not be solved. Central Leader of Awami National Party Doctor Inayatullah Khan said that rulers since last six decades branding Balochs and Pakhtoons as traitors and levelling baseless allegations against them. 'Nawab Akbar Bugti was forced to go mountains in old age, he said, and added govt must realise the fact and solve the issues seriously. Commenting over the statement, President Balochistan Bar Association Amanullah Baloch said that govt was not making earnest efforts to bring the real culprits to justice.
