QUETTA: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said several powers had Balochistan in their sight and it was Pakistan’s enemies who are destablising the province.
Addressing a passing out parade in Loralai the interior minister said in the past Pakistan’s flag could not be raised in some areas of Balochistan and now due to sacrifices of security agencies there was peace in the province.
“Our enemies should come and see that due to the sacrifices of our security agencies, support of the people and above all by the grace of Allah, Pakistan’s flag is raised throughout Balochistan.”
He said the reason some powers had Balochistan in their sight was because the province was rich with natural resources. Chaurhdy Nisar emphasised that the war against terrorism was not just Balochistan’s but that of the entire country and Islam.
“Enemies of Pakistan are behind the terrorists and anti-peace elements in Balochistan. We, however, will foil their nefarious designs to maintain peace and order,” said he.
He recalled that few years back, there was a concept that Pakistan national flag could not be hoisted in Balochistan, adding that but now peace had been restored and the national flag was being hoisted in the province.
The minister said that officers and personnel of FC Balochistan who belonged to different parts of the country including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan and Punjab provinces would have to love local people of Balochistan by behaving them politely.
“The officials and personnel will not have only to win the war on terror but they will also have to win the hearts of local people of Balochistan,” Ch Nisar said.
Appreciating the efforts of FC Balochistan, he said that FC was also imparting education to children and providing medical facilities to people of Balochistan. “The security and sovereignty of Pakistan and Balochistan is linked with peace. We will have to protect every inch of Pakistan and Balochistan,” he added.
