These 3 tribal sardars were members of Soviet influenced NAP (ANP) & allies of Indian sponsored Awami League in 1970 elections.

Following India’s invasion of East Pakistan they met with Bengali diplomats to plan Balochistan’s secession from Pakistan.…
In 1973 Nawab Akbar Bugti publicly disavowed the plan & exposed the ‘London Plan’ as a conspiracy to break Balochistan away from Pakistan on behest of KGB & RAW.

Akbar Bugti was made Governor Balochistan & he oversaw an army operation against Marri & Mengal dominated #BLA.

Parallel with creation of #BLA another terror group BLF was formed in 1964 by leftist baloch students in Syria.

Balochistan Liberation Front-BLF was formed by student leader Jumma Khan Marri in Syria, son of Sardar of Ramkani clan Hazar Khan Marri & senior BLA commander.

1. #China’s recent aggression at the border with India at key strategic locations in Union Territory of #Ladakh is nothing new nor is its betrayal of historic treaties with (former) J&K, #Tibet & HK. However, the dragon now faces a new India that attempts to tame it. A thread:
2. #China already occupies about 1/5th of original state of Jammu & Kashmir incl. Aksai Chin and Sakshgam valley “gifted” by #Pakistan. However, historically, these parts have been a part of formerly princely state of J&K that officially & legally became a part of #India in 1947.
3. Not just J&K but significant parts of #Tibet were also controlled by J&K rulers. Here’s the chronology of how #China illegally occupied these territories and clearly flouted the treaties signed during these times.

Bill introduced in #US Congress ( Lok Sabha) to declare the #USA will consider #Tibet as a free independent nation separate from #China . Interesting to note the proposal has come from a Republican Congressman @RepScottPerry who is a former @USArmy Brigadier General.
If & when this passes will open up assistance funding & support for the #Tibetans in exile in #India & elsewhere.
Will also open up routes for the #USA to sanction #China & any other nation ( #Pakistan ) that uses an illegal #CPEC /route passing through occupied #Tibet.
As I've said on a different fora earlier #India is key to helping rebuild #Tibet as a free nation for #Tibetans . I believe the @PMOIndia would've already started working on modalities with HH the @DalaiLama & the Govt of #Tibet in exile at Dharamshala & Bylakuppe.

#China-#India stand-off at Laddakh & consequences 4 #Pakistan

What I think of new tension?

🇨🇳’s move into #Laddakh & establishing a hold over Galwan river valley comes after 🇮🇳 coerced Nepal by encroaching it’s border territory & reviving Kalapani dispute.

China says that #India actually encroached in its territory. The similar holding over of river valley led to 1962 war between India and China.

What strategic compulsion weighed in behind the Chinese move?

A) What immediate reasons?

1. 🇮🇳 ’s aggressive behaviour re Nepal reviving Kalapani dispute, indirectly implicated 🇨🇳-es interest.

2. Post Aug 5 annexation of IOK w/ 🇮🇳-n intention 2 turn Laddakh into union territory rattled 🇨🇳 that 🇮🇳 is materially changing status of th region contested by🇨🇳& 🇵🇰.

So, finally it begins. Happy2 know China took d 1st step.Clears us from & on many things. Now,dat we've a situation.I expect & suggest2 Go all out. No holding back of any sort.Dis is d time4 everything that we ever wanted is there up for grabs.
Whole heartedly agree. International community supports only when dey know dey won't have any repercussions. India hv always done well in assuming & ultimately hving seen absolute non-supportive behaviour of the world. We're alone in this & shud work according2 dat only.
Hong Kong iron-clad unity will mean new incursion & skirmishes between India-China border areas. Now, it won't be limited to just Ladakh. Upcoming events will involve North East & Nepal.
Yes, Nepal too. Troop deployment will increase.

TREAD! Pakistan-Iran fencing?

Why fencing #Iran border w/ Pakistan is a big challenge for Islamabad, not due to money but for the following reason—I am delineating below:

There are 4 issues related but distinct....

1. Narco route
2. 🇮🇷’s grey economy
3. Human trafficking
4. Border economy

I ll address narco issue first:
Illicit drug trade originates from #Afghanistan; is worth up 2 $70B yearly in #UK streets; up to $3 bill is invested back in region rest end up in western banks. 2/
Porous border is used 4 narco logistics/route.

Drugs cartel funds terrorism, & warlordism & mafias in border regions of 🇦🇫, 🇵🇰 & 🇮🇷; they have influence in weak state like 🇦🇫 & desperate elements in structures in Iran 🇮🇷 who do not want stringent border between 🇮🇷 & 🇵🇰.

This isn't just another statement. It has deep meanings & implications.
Looks like we're ready to take up the mantle & do things on our own.
But will we take charge?
Has to be decided ASAP

1. Historically, Balochistan was a sovereign.In1947, when the British left the sub-continent. Kalat-Balochistan remained a free and independent country. The Khan of Kalat approached India for protection but no positive response by the Jawahar Lal Nehru led government.
2. Balochistan, the most volatile province in the southwestern borders of Pakistan has been struggling since 1948 against Pakistani illegal occupation. Balochistan got independence from the British on August 11, 1947 but was illegaly occupied by pakistan since march 1948.

I’ve been focusing on #Pakistan and #CPEC recently, but wanted to tell you all about this article on #India that @WilfriedSwenden and I published recently. In it we assess Lijphart’s claim that India should be coded as consociational 1/n.

Today liberal academics & leftist student activists are glorifying acts of terrorism by two student activists turned confessed #BLA terrorists as political activism.

It’s important to expose this heinous nexus between liberal academia, student activism & terrorism:

We must remember that #BLA is an internationally recognized terrorist organization:

Govt of #Pakistan has been trying to bring #BLA terrorists to justice, and appealing to all international organizations & government action against #BLA:

Pakistan-China Industrial Cooperation #Thread


Pak-China Industrial cooperation, compounded with the guidance of Chinese experts, will provide an excellent opportunity for Pakistan to strengthen its industrial capacity & capability.…

CPEC's potential impact on Pakistan has been compared to that of the Marshall Plan by USA in post-war Europe. Analysts predict that CPEC will result in creation of upwards of 2.3 m jobs between 2015–2030, & add 2 to 2.5 % points to the country's annual economic growth.

The future of Pakistan lies in export led growth strategy, which makes development of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) vital to improve the country's capacity and to complement the export requirements.

As per chatter in high-level bureaucratic circles GoI is in talks with foreign multinational corporations for development of Srinagar-Jammu Industrial Corridor, including Chinese ones. A major Kashmir Development Summit slated to be organised soon with global investors lined-up.
Meanwhile discussions are also underway for a possible deployment of American missiles in Kashmir - possibly Ladakh. The move already rejected by Australians.

Washington withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces INF Treaty, the sametime military was deployed in Kashmir
Both Australia and South Korea have categorically rejected US demand for the deployment of American ground-based missiles on their soil.

Hence, India is on the cards now.

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.
Killings of #Hazara Shias in Balochistan helps the enemy kill two birds with a stone.
1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.

#Rouhani invites #Japan to invest in #Chabahar. Interesting how #Iran is bringing countries that have policy issues with #China to get in the port to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This should not surprise anyone. This is a consistent policy of involving states with issues with #China like #India/#US/#Japan to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This is why it is important that #Pakistan engages #Trump Admin and convinces it that waiver on #Chabahar to #India/#Iran not in #US interest. It strengthens lobbies in #Afghanistan opposed to Trump peace plan.

Organized misinformation campaign is underway inside #Pakistan agst economic deals with #IMF+#China+#KSA+#UAE. It seeks to fail the economy by paralyzing govt decision making. Campaign originates from elements/sources known to coordinate on issues of interest to regional actors.
This campaign disguises itself as oversight of Govt deals but it is actually focused on disinformation, demoralization, & generating an overall environment of uncertainty to paralyze Govt & State. This campaign has all the hallmarks of information operations & is not dissimilar
to earlier campaigns on #Yemen #IMCTC #KSA #Turkey #US #CPEC & #China. A key objective in these campaigns has been to paralyze the State & confuse public opinion to facilitate damage to #Pakistan's strategic interests through indecision & chaos. IMF deal is being presented as

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
