NEW DELHI: Pakistani army, frontier corps stationed in Balochistan and its wicked intelligence Agency, ISI have kidnapped and killed civilians, who questioned the repressive regime of the state. Pakistan army blames judicial activism for dragging cases of disappearances from the region to the light and thus giving army and ISI bad names,” reveals its top-secret publication for Operational commanders.

Pakistan, which over the years has nurtured terrorist outfits, is on the backfoot because it believes United States and India have joined hands to execute another dismemberment of Pakistan with the help of Iran.

A panic-stricken country has decided to shift the focus and in a hurriedly organized sham military court hearing, decided to handover death sentence to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was kidnapped from Iran by ISI and its militant proxies. 

Pakistani army publication ‘Green Book’ has also blamed its own media for writing on illegal disappearances. It said the “issue of enforced disappearances continues to be the most reported case in media and hence judicial activism is seen questioning the role of state functionaries. This earns bad name to the security forces in general and army and ISI in particular.” 

“Civil society in general and media in particular has not been able to play the requisite role.” 

Pak army also admits “High handedness of Frontier Corps’ gives birth to perceptions that security forces are calling the shots in Balochistan.”

It fears that ‘use of force alone cannot bring sustainable peace in Balochistan’ and is now looking for a way out fearing the expose on its activities and support to terror groups like Taliban in the region by US-India-Iran axis. 

“The issue of enforced disappearances being an illegal act negates all the efforts to bring order in Balochistan, therefore, it must be put to an end.”

“Three ‘D’s’ -deterrence by Frontier Corps and detainment and deaths have irked the people of the province most, hence need to be addressed as a prelude to any conflict resolution effort,” it further said.  

United States, Pakistan army believes, is working on the plan to disallow use of Gawadar port to China for economic and military purposes. In the long run, Pakistan army feels that US wants to control the region for exploitation of energy reserves and therefore a docile independent Balochistan serves US interests better.

India-Iran-Afghanistan trade cooperation reflects policy of undermining Pakistan in the region. A paranoid Pakistan even sees Putin’s footprints in Balochistan claiming the country is planning 'to teach Pakistan a lesson for its role in the ouster of erstwhile USSR from Afghanistan. 

“Russian footprints are perceptible in Balochistan insurgency,” it said.
