With #US sanctions on #Iran, this is the time for #Pakistan to squeeze #Tehran on #IRGC's destabilization inside Pak+alliance with #India in #Afghanistan+#Chabahar. #Islamabad should leverage IRGC's use of Pakistani markets/ports for smuggling and evading
#US sanctions. #Pakistan should not look away this time as it did during #Iran-#Iraq war in 80s when #IRGC used Pak facilities to dodge sanctions. Let's remember how the Pasdaran, who are #India's allies in Iran, bluntly threw Dr AQ Khan under the bus in 2003 creating the biggest
crisis for #Pakistan's nuclear program, and how #Iran joined #India diplomats in openly lobbying #China to end #CPEC part of #BRI bcz "#Balochistan is not safe" while sponsoring terrorism to ensure #Beijing changes its mind. This is the moment to isolate

#OrmaraMassacre in #Balochistan & #Iran's role in terrorism in #Pakistan, in pursuance of a joint strategic project with #India. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi
Two days before the emergence of #Iran's role in #Ormara attack, #Karachi police busted an #Iranian terror cell assigned to destabilize #Pakistan's business hub. /2

The busting of #Iran-backed #Karachi cell & role in #Ormara attack shows #Tehran has not stopped its anti-#Pakistan activities after the busting of #ChabaharTerrorNetwork, a joint project with #India, in 2015. /3

'#Baloch terrorist organizations' is a misnomer and a dangerous term that should not be used in official and media lexicon in #Pakistan. It risks creating permanent fissures in #Pakistani society. /1

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
In its letter to #Iran embassy on anti-#Pakistan terrorism emanating from #Iranian soil, #Pakistani MFA referred to '#Baloch terror organizations' twice. MFA is not alone in doing this. Variations like 'Baloch terrorists' are common in our public discourse. /2
@AQpk
The term '#Baloch terror organizations' & its variations risks making a permanent association between '#Baloch' & '#terror', & the link must be disturbing for the ears of #Pakistani Baloch & insensitive to their feelings. /3

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

To debunk a false narrative of #Balochistan’s accession to #Pakistan being spread for political goals.

To provide a history lesson to SM opinion makers & anchors as @MalickViews who must challenge such gross misrepresentations of historical facts on national media.

There was no upper/lower house representing entire #Balochistan at independence in 1947.

What @sakhtarmengal (intentionally/unintentionally) refers to as ‘Aiwane Bala & Aiwane Ziren’ were appointed (unelected) houses of State Of Kalat consisting of only 26% of Balochistan
