Forced evictions & demolitions during #Covid_19 in Pakistan.
As “Eviction” contradicts the “stay at home” policy, the United Nations has called on member states & governments at all levels to stop all migrations & evictions at this time of pendamic covid-19.
The recent effects of the #COVIDー19 are causing a lot of problems around the world, especially for people who have suffered significant loss of #income. In such a difficult and critical time, ‘#home’ has become a ‘#defense’ against the #coronavirusPandemic.
States around the world are ordering people to stay “at home” to prevent the spread of Covid-19. But at the same time, many states are at risk of being evicted, while at least 150 million people worldwide are homeless and living on temporary shelters or sidewalks.

[Thread] #Balochistan Budget Analysis - 2

GOB has allocated Rs4.5 billion for #Covid_19 response, which can be sufficient if spent wisely and honestly. The spending on building quarantine centers in the last few months had a lot of irregularities. 1/7
The health budget has been increased to Rs31 bn, which includes procuring an air ambulance for 2.5 bn. This is again a questionable move because it hints that GOB prefers airlifting serious patients to Karachi and not develop quality hospitals in #Quetta. 2/7
There is no significant plan for Post-COVID economic recovery apart from the announcement of 6,840 job vacancies. Given the track record of previous years, it would be nearly impossible to hire on all these announced vacancies. 3/7

1. The face of #Pakistan’s Anti-#Kashmir agenda globally, Shireen Mazari- the Federal Minsiter for Human Rights in Pakistan- is the perfect candidate for covering up Pakistan’s occupation of foreign territories as well as ongoing corruption in the govt.
2. Ironically, Shireen Mazari had assumed office in 2018 with a bang, campaigning to end corruption through accountability & transparency, the very foundations her career lacks.
3. A book released in 1996 titled ‘State and Civil Society in #Pakistan: Politics of Authority, Ideology and Ethnicity’ by I. Malik, reveals that the Mazari family are defaulters of 49,742 Million Rupees to the national exchequer, including Shireen Mazari.

A mob kills innocents in #Quetta #Thread

کوئی بھی الزام (غلط یا صحیح) دے کر لوگوں کو آواز دینا، تشدد پر اکسانا، چند لوگوں کو ساتھ ملا کر مارپیٹ، بہیمانہ تشدد کرنا، یہاں تک کہ نشانہ بننے والا شخص جان سے ہاتھ دھو بیٹھے، ایسا پاکستان کے کسی چھوٹے یا بڑے شہر میں پہلی بار نہیں ہوا

1) @realDonaldTrump, evidently misinformed, stated in his last speech that #ISIS is “100 percent” defeated. The following thread will give ongoing examples of why that’s completely wrong so that any potential readers with access to the President’s ear can better inform him.
2) Today, #ISIS claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing in #Quetta #Pakistan, in which 15 were killed and 19 injured.…
3) The latest issue of #ISIS' Naba newsletter details “156 Disbelievers and Apostates” killed in #BurkinaFaso in recent months. Also brags of killing Christians while “taking others prisoner” and “burning their churches.”…

#Pakistan releases pictures from PC Hotel in #Gwadar, 3 terrorists killed but bodies held for identification. Max effort was made to capture them alive to know where they came from. Sea is likelier route but unconfirmed yet. #India #Afghanistan #ChabaharTerrorNetwork
There are only two places where the #Gwadar attack terrorists came from: Iran and Afghanistan. In both cases, #Indian representative offices in #Zahedan, #Chabahar, and #Kandahar are suspects. @AQpk

#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

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 !
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.
