Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that a “full-fledged operation” against militants in province of Balochistan such as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a main terrorist organization responsible of Shia Genocide, would be launched soon.
In addition to that, he said, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was operating from the area spreading from Zhob to Chaman under the leadership of Anees-ud-din Khanzada.
Rehman Malik added that the basic objective of these organizations was to destabilize Pakistan by supporting the independent Balochistan movement.
Rehman Malik made these disclosures in his speech to the Senate of Pakistan. He also showed proof about training camps being run in Afghanistan and a number of official letters written by the Afghan government to its departments to provide funds, visas, passports and arms and ammunition to dissident leaders inside Balochistan.
He also unveiled proof about Pakistani insurgents getting training in Kandahar and other areas. He also mentioned strong links of dissident leaders with Afghanistan and India. The minister claimed that there were 24 training camps for terrorists in Kandahar alone.
Rehman Malik said certain elements were playing in the hands of enemies and trying to balkanise Balochistan. He said the Baloch loved Pakistan but some people were getting support from their foreign masters.
According to a pro-government website (criticalppp.com), presenting proof of training camps inside Afghanistan, he gave a number of official letters written by none other than the Afghan government to its security agencies, calling for funding “dissidents to create Bangladesh-like situation in Balochistan”.
The minister requested nationalist parties to support the government, before it was too late. He made it clear that no compromise would be made on the national interest and all decisions would be taken in this regard.
