Balochistan is located on the northern lip of straits of Hormuz through which much of the world’s oil supply passes. Balochistan is GOD giftedly rich in natural resources itself with an estimated 19 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves and 6 trillion barrels of oil reserves. Therefore, many nations including USA, Russia and India see Balochistan as a strategically important zone of influence. Do you agree on followings:-

  • Foreign funding channels and countries who are seriously concentrating on weakening Pakistan from within with special attention towards FATA, NWFP and Balochistan.
  • There is a linkage of recent events in Balochistan and the presence of Indian consulates along the Pak-Afghan border. These unnecessary Indian consulates provide hub for Indian intelligence activities and are responsible for dispatching trained militants in Balochistan.
  • The deep seated Indian animosity against Pakistan is also exposed in front of the world. The Indian consulates in Jalalabad and Kandhar are pumping money into Balochistan as well providing training to the separatist elements in Balochistan. In this context, reference to the US under Secretary of State for political affairs Mr. William Burns statement where he has asked India to trim its consulate in Jalalabad.
  • The Khan of Kalat while forming the ‘Council for Independent Balochistan’ in London said that he is enjoying the support of ‘like-minded’ and ‘friendly’ countries who had promised him all help and cooperation. This statement must be weighed under the light of former RAW agent B Raman’s comment that struggle for an independent Balochistan is part of the unfinished agenda of the partition. In the same letter to Ms Sonia Gandhi he takes pride while admitting the Indian involvement in the creation of Bangladesh.
  • Uncover Indian subversive activities against Pakistan and Iran executed through Afghan soil. Iran should realize that she has a large Baloch population on its side of border with Pakistan and the Indian desire of weakening Pakistan by creating independent Balochistan will cost heavy to Iran itself as the map of Greater Balochistan includes Sistan province as well.
