Imran Khan endorses Sardar Mengal's six points
[Dawn] Chairman Pakistain Tehrik-e-Insaf
...a political party in Pakistan. PTI was founded by former Pakistani cricket captain and philanthropist Imran Khan. The party's slogan is
Justice, Humanity and Self Esteem, each of which is open to widely divergent interpretations....
Taliban Khan, who ain't the brightest knife in the national drawer...
on Friday endorsed the six points raised by Sardar Akhtar Mengal in the Supreme Court of Pakistain.
Khan said that the situation in Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
deteriorated tremendously after 2008 because of a non- representative government installed despite the boycott by the real political stake holders and the resulting assembly is full of corrupt politicians who are only interested in pocketing millions of rupees each year.
Military operations against our own people whether covert or overt, were not a solution but a destructive process in itself.
The PTI chairman said hat his party has always been against those operations. The damage done historically is huge but if efforts are made they can still be repaired.
He added that the issue of 'missing' persons and 'death squads' where people are picked up was alarming for a population that already has the lowest socio-economic indicators as compared to all other provinces.
Those involved in the forced disappearances should be brought to book including those who were involved in the murder of Sardar Akbar Bugti.
Khan said that we strongly believe that all political parties should be allowed to function freely to prepare the stage for a representative assembly.
It can then concentrate on emergency measures to redress the grievances of the people of Balochistan.
