World Baloch Jewish Alliance fully supports President Karzai
WASHINGTON, D.C. – World Baloch Jewish Alliance (WBJA) convener and journalist, Ahmar Mustikhan, has fully supported Afghan President's statements at the United Nations that Pakistan was training the terrorists for attacks inside Afghanistan and is a sanctuary of Al Qaeda and Taliban.
In a letter to Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Said T. Jawad, Mustikhan urged the Afghan ambassador to emphasize on President Bush that Islamic terrorists are wearing Pakistani army uniforms.
“We the Baloch Diaspora fully support President Hamid Karzai’s stand that Pakistan is behind the upsurge of terrorist actions against Afghanistan, a fledging democracy that is trying to rebuild after more than quarter century of war,” Mustikhan said.
The Baloch Diaspora, including those within Pakistan and Iran, stand resolutely with the government and people of Afghanistan under the able leadership of President Abdul Hamid Karzai at this time of their need.
He said the Baloch fully support President Karzai's statement that Pakistan is “training a snake that can also bite the trainer.”
According to a news report addressing the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations on Thursday, President Karzai said that Pakistan’s toleration of pro-Taliban militants had contributed to Afghanistan’s instability.
“This is exactly what we Baloch nationalists are trying to tell the world that Pakistan is part of the problem, not part of the solution,” Mustikhan said.
President Karzai rightfully stated that cooperating with terrorists was like ‘trying to train a snake against somebody else.’ President Karzai said, “You cannot train a snake. It will come and bite you.”
It is unfortunate that when the despicable Taliban regime was in power in Afghanistan, Pakistan army generals including former Inter-Services Intelligence (I.S.I.) chief, General (Retd.) Hameed Gul used to proudly claim that Afghanistan had become the fifth province of Pakistan.
“Not many people know, but within Pakistan army, Hameed Gul has been the hero for coup leader General Pervez Musharraf. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Hameed Gul is to this day closely connected with both bin Laden and Mullah Omar,” Mustikhan said.
He said President Karzai has also correctly pointed out that Musharraf is encouraging religious parties to maintain political power.
He drew the attention of the Afghan ambassador to the historic gathering of the traditional Upper House of Balochistan Parliament, the Shahi Jirga, which met under the leadership of the Khan of Kalat, His Highness Mir Suleman Dawood Khan, on September 21.
“You might be knowing the Baloch are now going to the International Court of Justice to seek justice against the forced annexation of their land on March 27, 1948,” Mustikhan informed the ambassador. “We shall appreciate whatever help and support the government of Afghanistan can provide to the people of Balochistan in this matter.”
The WBJA convener said, “Pakistan army is not only hands in gloves with the Islamic terrorists, but their soldiers are themselves Islamic terrorists in army uniform. I do hope President Karzai would raise this issue at the joint meeting with President Bush on September 27.”
Mustikhan reiterated that Baloch all over the world fully support President Karzai and the valiant people of Afghanistan against Pakistani machinations and General Musharraf’s double-faced policy.
