Yet another sad news emanating from Balochistan is the assasination of Balochistan National Party -Mengal Group’s leader Habib Jalib. Why? and by Who? are just two of the many questions that come to mind. The blame game has already started with fingers getting pointed in every which direction. In the meantime angry mobs set fire to Government property all across the province. Who will benefit from all the destruction being carried out to public property?

May the deceased rest in peace!

According to Dawn news, Educational institutions across whole province will remain closed for 2 days. BNP-M has announced 3 days of strike and 40 days of mourning. While Habib’s assassination is the saddest news, one should ask who will benefit from the 3-days of shutter-down-wheel-jam strike? Definitely not the common bread earner on the street.

The Daily News’ coverage of this sad event can be read here and the Daily Dawn’s here.

    in great attempts its glorious even to fail.nobody will stay here till the day of judgment. But look how great they are .those who are being lo;;ed while they are demanding for the rights of there bullet can stop the thoughts. ideas and demand of their rights.

    موت اُس کی جس کا کرئے عالم افسوس
    ورنہ دنیا میں سبھی مرنے کیئلے اتے ہیں
    بلوچستان ایک عظیم لیڈر سے محروم ہو گیا ۔اللہ تعائی اُن کے درجات بلند کرئے

    What a tragedy and loss. A sad day for everyone.

    Habib Jalib’s colleague and party leader Akhtar Mengal had this to say:
    ‘“The same powerful forces are involved in the killing of Habib Jalib who had eliminated Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti”
    “They have created such circumstances in Balochistan, which were earlier created in Bengal by killing innocent people with the help of Al-Shams and Al-Badr outfits,”

    Adding, “Katl karne vaale bhi vo hain aur investigation karne vaale bhi vahin hain”.

    Some years ago I met Habib Jalib. He was a soft spoken highly educated man who believed in democracy and human rights. His loss will only further the bitter divide in Balochistan.

    God save Pakistan from these lawless and powerful goons who belief they are not answerable to any law.

    Democracy in our country is already trying to sustain itself, and this incident further tried to weaken its steady development.

    have die-hard separatists been ruled out of having done this? apparently habib jalib baloch was moderate. in killig him, the separatists may had killed two birds with one stone.

    While you may have a point when it comes to what the religious militants are upto, it has little to do with what the Establishment’s agencies are up to and the murder of Habib Jalib, a decent moderate human being and a Baloch political leader.

    if the agencies are responsible for his killing, they have shot themselves in the foot – haven’t they?

    Logic and commonsense doesn’t seem to apply to these people. We must recall that many of these militants who are now bleeding Pakistan dry were once ‘freedom fighters’ trained, armed and supported by these so-called ‘super patriots’. These guys don’t deserve any points for intelligence or foresight, do they?

    Terrorism is serious threat to our nation’s future. We need to work an elaborate strategy to counter terrorism and at the same time make a serious effort to de radicalize our society.

    نہ نذر دیں ہوا کہ بیعانہ جزا ہوتا
    کسی علم پہ رقم ہو کہ مشتہر ہوتا
    نہ مدعی نہ شہادت حساب پاک پوا
    یہ خون خاک نشیناں تھا رزق خاک ہوا

    The killings everywhere, at least some of them are orchestrated just to spread desperation and while I dio not think India is behind all of these, it is probably doing some to fan the flames.

    Those who have been working for the revival of true democracy really helped the whole nation grow. Democracy had to sustain setbacks in every era since our independence, but we hope and pray that these sacrifices are not gone wasted.
