Interference in Balochistan | Pakistan | News | Newspaper | Daily | English | Online Baloch nationalists have now shifted to London, operating there out of a flat where a prominent Baloch leader lives in self-imposed exile. This group is not only bringing out anti-Pakistan literature for distribution in the troubled province, but is also in contact with American and Indian diplomats. Members of the group travel to the USA, India and Oman, using a travel agent of Indian origin, who is paid by the Indian High Commission, according to a report appearing on Sunday in Nawa-i-Waqt. It seems that, not content with misusing its consulates in Afghanistan against Pakistan, India is bankrolling Baloch nationalists abroad, and keeping alive a movement which needs government action to stop it from spreading. There are two approaches for the government to take. The first is to give the Baloch their rights, and not restrict itself to cosmetic measures like the Aghaz-e-Huqooq-e-Balochistan package, which incidentally has not yet been put into effect, or holding Cabinet meetings in Quetta, is not enough. Besides, mere reliance on the employment opportunities offered by the Army, of which COAS General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani made an announcement on Saturday, will not do. If there is no cause for complaint, the separatists will have no arguments. Also, this lack of popular support will lead foreign powers to lose interest in them. At the moment, it should not be forgotten that India and the USA are alert to any way they can destabilise Pakistan, but they are only exploiting opportunities that we have created by our own mistakes. The second is the vigorous diplomatic campaign that the High Commission in London should launch, focusing on the undiplomatic activities of India in the UK, aimed against a friendly country which is helping the UK directly in its part of the war on terror. The Pakistan government should not only make sure that protests are lodged with the American and Indian governments, but also that other governments are brought up to date on the conspiracy against Pakistan which they are sponsoring. It should also not lose sight of the fact that true friends do not, like the USA, attempt to break it up.
