    Re: Militants kill 19 abducted passengers in Balochistan's Mastung

    From the reports we are getting, the people on the buses killed were ethnic Pashtuns. Although I believe Baloch nationalists target Punjabis and Urdu speakers more, I think they target all non-Balochs to an extent. But Mastung is also an area dominated by the likes of sectarian militant organisations like the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Taliban. Although it is surprising we have not gotten much details for this attack and who the perpetrators were, one thing is for sure: Mastung needs to undergo an extensive cleanup operation. Bus passengers are always pulled out and killed mercilessly here. The government has to restore its writ in all parts of the country. I think that the Pakistan (non-Army) security apparatus is reactive instead of proactive, and it needs to be more proactive.

    Shutter-down strike in Quetta over Mastung massacre

    QUETTA: A shutter-down strike and day of mourning is being observed today in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan to protest the killing of bus passengers in Mastung late on Friday.

    All shops and business centers remained closed while vehicular traffic remained sparse on roads as part of the strike being observed in the provincial capital city.

    Almost all political political parties of Balochistan had given the call of shutter-down strike to mourn the killings of Mastung bus passengers and express sympathy with victims' families.

    Chief Minister Balochistan Dr Malik Baloch has also announced three days official mourning in the province.

    Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F), Awami National Party (ANP) and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Nazriyati (JUI-N) activists and traders took to the streets in Quetta to ensure the closure of all shops and business centers on the eve of the strike.

    However, JUI-N, an opposition religious party, has lashed out at the government for its failure to protect the lives and properties of masses.

    "It is ironic that Prime Minister reached Karachi within hours of Safoora incident, but he is reluctant to come to Quetta," Abdul Sattar Chishti, the Central Secretary Information JUI-I told reporters.

    Armed militants had killed 22 passengers in Mastung's Khad Kucha area on Friday night. The defunct United Baloch Army (UBA) had claimed the responsibility for the attack.

    Besides Quetta, shutter-down strike is also being observed in Pishin, Killa Abdullah, Chaman, Zhob, Loralai and other districts of the province.

    The strike was also backed by the traders community, civil society and other human rights organisations. "Killing of vulnerable people is extremely condemnable," Shams Mandokhail, an activist of human rights commission Balochistan chapter told DawnNews.

    He said, "the victims had nothing to do with politics or any other activity rather they were on their way to Karachi to earn daily bread for their kids."

    All the victims belonged to Killa Abdullah and Pishin districts and they were buried in the presence of thousands of mourners in their native areas.

    The administration had taken strict security measures in Quetta and other parts of Balochistan to avoid occurence of any untoward incident during the strike.

    Besides police and levies, personnel of frontier corps were also patrolling in sensitive parts of the province to maintain the order.

    Do they really think this will change anything apart from the shop keepers losing money?

    TTP killed PML-N MPA: Khorasani

    Peshawar: Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) today claimed responsibility for the killing of PML-N's member of Punjab Assembly (MPA) Rana Shamshad, who was shot dead along with his son and a party worker in Kamoki on Sunday evening.

    Taliban spokesman Mohammad Khorasani told media that the attack on the legislator was carried out, by militants belonging to the proscribed group.

    The Punjab legislator was on his way home from his farmhouse in Kot Raja, accompanied by his son, nephew and a party worker, when armed assailants, reportedly on board a black car, opened heavy fire at the MPA's vehicle.

    Eye witnesses said the attackers had covered their faces with cloth and fled the scene, right after the attack. Police reached the site of the incident immediately and transferred all four injured to the nearest district hospital.

    Police sources said Shamshad and his son, Ahmed, were pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

    Chaudhary Shamshad was elected to the Punjab Assembly from Gujranwala's constituency PP-100 on a Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) ticket. He had served as the provincial transport minister during PML-Q's government in Punjab.

    Five Hazaras shot dead in Quetta

    QUETTA: Unknown assailants killed five people belonging to the Hazara community in Quetta's Bacha Khan Chowk area on Sunday evening, Dawn.com reported.

    Police sources said suspected militants opened fire at two shops near Bacha Khan Chowk, the city's commercial hub.

    Police stated the deceased belonged to the Hazara community. Four people had died on the spot while there was one injured who was rushed to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Quetta for medical treatment. However, he later succumbed to his injuries.

    Police said the assailants managed to escape from the scene. It was an act of targeted killing, police sources told Dawn.com.

    Soon after the incident, markets and business establishments were closed and panic gripped the area. Traffic vanished from the roads.

    In the past few days, more than half-a-dozen Hazara community were also gunned down in Quetta.

    Police and personnel of Frontier Corps (FC) were called to the area to bring the situation under control. Balochistan Chief Minister Dr. Malik Baloch strongly condemned the incident and directed the police to bring the perpetrators to justice.

    “Strict action will be taken against the elements involved in the target killing,” he said.

    The chief minister expressed sympathy with the bereaved families and promised all possible help to them.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility following the attack.

    Later, around 500 people from the community took to the streets in protest against the incident carrying the coffins of the deceased and refusing to bury them.

    About 500 protesters placed the coffins of the victims on the road and chanted slogans against the government for failing to protect them.

    “We are facing a genocide and the government makes only empty promises instead of providing protection,” Husnain Ali, a protester in his early 20s, told AFP.

    He said he would sit on the road with the dead bodies until the perpetrators are arrested.

    Balochistan has been experiencing incident violence and targeted killings since more than a decade. The largest province of the country by area, is home to a low-level insurgency by ethnic Baloch separatists. Al Qaeda-linked militants also operate in the region.

    The province shares borders with Afghanistan and Iran.

    So you note that the reason they usually escape is that police are not coordinating, they don't have the organization and the communications to coordinate.

    Most certainly - whats more the police are the most corrupt of institutions - officers pay like an auction to become the chief of a station, which means that they then shake down the area under their control - T, you just don't understand that while Pakistan is resilient, it is simply not a serious state - the only external thing that matters to the establishment is India, and internally, the only thing that matters is the politicians, bureaucrats and their mafias shaking down the populace.

    Don't get me wrong, Pakistan has many positives, but basics, it does not get right - because that's where they make their money.
