Occupied Balochistan: B N S Turbat Halkaar has, through its SMS report, received at 10:20am, informed that the occupying Pakistani forces have launched an unprovoked operation in Gebon village of district Turbat in the early morning at 5:55 Am today. so far four persons has been reported killed by occupying forces with 7 Arrests, Pakistani media reported.
When this ascribe contacted the locals about this operation they confirmed that the first raid took place at the house of Shahsowar named man. Until this report, firing and loud bomb blasts are continuing and locals also reported that entire Gebon village is under siege of occupying forces. According to reports Firing has also spread to the Gebon Middle Girls School.  Local journalists are not being allowed to confirm and report the numbers of casualties.  But locals reported that the girls school has received substantial damages.
It is worth mentioning here that Gebon is situated very close to Merani Dam which is designed to supply water to Gawadar  city mega projects that were initiated with Chinese financial aid under a strategic design.
For the past one month the military has intensified its gory operation in different parts of Balochistan backed by air force. Baloch media has confirmedly reported an increase in the number of troops deployment in  several places of strategic important.

 In Pakistan Pakhtoon nationalism is revolves around two parties Awami National Party(ANP) and Pakhtoonkhawa Milli Awami Party (PMAP).ANP have influence in Khaber  Pakhtoonkhaw (KPK) province while PMAP in Pakhtoon areas of Balochistan.

 Although Pakhtoon’s always prefer Islamic Political Parties like Jameet-Ulma-e-Islam over nationalist but still both parties have large number of followers.In In recent elections of 2008 ANP beat Islamic Parties in KPK province and ruling party of KPK.

 But my topic is not who has how much followers or who made government in KPK my topic is Pakhtoon Nationalist party role in Balochistan conflict,sorry to say that it is very negative.

 In Khaber PakhtoonKhaw (KPK) assembly ANP passed a  Resolution condemning US congressman bill on right of self-determination of Baloch.I can only say that ANP being a nationalist and follower of BACHA Khan this kind of behaviour toward a oppress nation do not suit them.If they can’t support Baloch then they should also don’t help Pakistan to suppress Baloch. I also advise ANP to Pass a  resolution against Baloch genocide by Pakistani Army in Balochistan too.

 I will concentrate on PMAP because in Balochistan there is greater influence of PMAP than ANP .

 In Balochistan PakhtoonKhawa Milli Awami Party (PMAP) has great influence on Pakhtoon nationalism although PMAP have large number of followers but still not enough to have an influence on Balochistan Politics, in Balochistan after Jamait-e-Ulama Islam Fazal-ur-Rehman PMAP have large number of follower in Pakhtoon majority areas of Balochistan.

 PMAP as a Nationalist must support Baloch nationalist movement but instead of supporting  PMAP don’t let any chance of defaming Baloch Cause go unturned,we never find the PMAP protesting the massacre of Baloch political activists or Baloch women and children, but if  a Punjabi settler is killed, PMAP start’s a planned campaign to condemn the killing of a Punjabi.

 Baloch  find PMAP always in their apposition never favouring their struggle instead of favouring they are opposing their cause.I find PMAP aways competing with Baloch while there is no competition between them both have different territories,both are oppressed nations.Instead of demanding or struggling against government of Pakistan for Pakhtoon rights PMAP IS struggling against Baloch for their rights and demanding 50 percent share in Balochistan where as there population is not more than 30 %.They should demand 100% of their own right but they have no right to demand 50% of Baloch right,again it is not an issue because in Pakistan minorities have no rights.

 Recently PMAP instead of demanding Pakhtoon Province for Pakhtoon majority areas of Balochistan they demanded to government of Pakistan for restoration of British Balochistan.In British Balochistan there are  many Baloch districts too,for doing such demand what they are trying to prove I don’t know,but this claim of PMAP on Baloch Territory is not going to help Pakhtoons but only to Punjabi establishment to suppress the Baloch .Baloch never claimed Pakhtoon territory ever,they should also respect Baloch and there cause,but don’t know why Pakhtoon Nationalist are not recognizeing their real enemy who is destroying their Nationalism not only in Pakistan but also in Afghanistan in the name of Islam.

 Pakhtoon Natinalism is suffering from decades in Balochistan due to the Islamic political Parties  influence over Pakhtoons.During soviet-Afghan war Islamic political parties took over Pakhtoon Nationalist parties and later Taliban government in Afghanistan and ISI helped these Islamic Parties to took control over Pakhtoon majority areas of Balochistan.  The only chance of survival of Pakhtoon Nationalism from Talibanization is free Nationalist Balochistan. A neighbour Nationalist country like Balochistan will be a natural ally of Afghanistan and support nationalist instead of Taliban kind of extremists.

 I want to advise Pakhtoon nationalist that Pakistan is not a friend of any one,if today Baloch are suffering definitely tomorrow you will suffer like Afghanistan is suffering from decades due to Pakistan.

 Pakhtoon Natinalism is suffering from decades in Balochistan due to the Islamic political Parties  influence over Pakhtoons.During soviet-Afghan war Islamic political parties took over Pakhtoon Nationalist parties and later Taliban government in Afghanistan helped these Islamic Parties to took control over Pakhtoon majority areas of Balochistan.

Imran Khan recent visit and jalsa in Quetta was an attempt to encounter Baloch insurgency but failed due to very little almost nothing presence of Baloch in this Jalsa but this jalsa is a great threat to Pakhtoon Nationalism and Pakhtoon Nationalist parties because of presence of large number of Pakhtoons in that PTI jalsa.

In Balochistan PakhtoonKhawa Milli Awami Party (PMAP) has great influence on Pakhtoon nationalism although PMAP have large number of followers but still not enough to have an influence on Balochistan Politics, in Balochistan after Jamait-e-Ulama Islam Fazal-ur-Rehman PMAP have large number of follower in Pakhtoon majority areas of Balochistan.

Majority of pakhtoons always prefer Islamic Parties over Nationalist in Balochistan since few decades,but still there is a good number of voters for nationalist but now PTI is a great challenge to Pakhtoon Nationalist Parties in Balochistan,because PTI  will only influence secular Pakhtoons who are voters of ANP or PMAP in Balochistan,on the other hand PTI have no attraction to the voters of Islamic political parties in Balochistan.

PTI will further cut vote bank of Pakhtoon Nationalist in Balochistan because PTI only influence secular or liberal Pakhtoons who are voters of Nationalist parties and further divide pakhtoons,which helps Islamic political parties.

Now its on Pakhtoon nationalist how they handle this challenge otherwise it will badly damage Pakhtoon Nationalism in Balochistan.
