Under a well-thought-out conspiracy, sectarian organisations in Balochistan are targeting Ulema of the Jamiat-e-Ulema-Pakistan (JUP) and are assassinating them.
This was disclosed by Shah Muhammad Owais Noorani Sidiqui, Senior Vice-President, Jamiat-e-Ulema-Pakistan, while addressing a press conference at the Karachi Press Club Tuesday afternoon.
The latest, he said, was the murder of Maulana Habibi which was just four or five days ago.
He said that over the last four years eight noted scholars of the JUP had been eliminated but their assassins were still at large and roaming scot-free most brazenly.
He called on the Government of Pakistan to immediately clamp on the heinous activities of the proscribed sectarian outfits.
He said that the JUP had evidence that the US CIA, India’s Raw, and Israel’s Mossad were jointly conducting subversive operations in Balochistan, including sectarian killings, to create dissension in the province and soften the ground for their subversive activities, but, he said, the cruel irony was that the Government of Pakistan, despite being fully aware of the heinous activities of these foreign intelligence agencies was totally silent on the issue.
He said that it was sad to see that the government’s writ was nowhere in evidence as the concerned authorities were not implementing the Supreme Court’s orders on the situation, including that of missing persons.
Noorani ruled out any let-up in the Balochistan unrest and said that the situation just could not improve as long as the Supreme Court’s orders were not implemented, a general amnesty was not announced by the army, and Akbar Bugti’s killers were not brought to justice. He called for immediate trial of former president General Pervez Musharraf in this regard, along with former prime minister Shaukat Aziz. He demanded immediate implementation of the Supreme Court’s orders to check kidnappings for ransom, target killings, and the general unrest in the province.
He, in particular, implicated the US CIA in the case of the missing persons.
While Noorani was holding a press conference inside the KPC, a demonstration by the Baloch Human Rights Organisation for the recovery of missing persons and against the operation in Balochistan was being held outside the club. The demonstration was largely participated in by women, young men, the aged, and children, mostly the offspring of the missing persons. They were holding aloft placards denouncing state terrorism and the ongoing operation in Balochistan.
Addressing the participants, speakers said that state terrorism was slipping out of control in the province and in this regard, cited the frequent bombings of the civilian residential areas, destruction of houses by setting them afire, destruction of livestock, forced disappearances, recovery of mutilated corpses, and other gross human rights violations.
