    (excerpt) "If someone does not accept the accusation, they torture him to accept it. Confessions under coercion and the beating of the accused have no place in sharia (Islamic law) and our country's Constitution," Molavi Abdolhamid Ismaeelzahi said in a Friday prayers sermon, according to his website. Ismaeelzahi is based in Zahedan, capital of the impoverished Sistan-Baluchistan province, home to Iran's Baluch minority. Authorities have reportedly pressured him by banning him from traveling abroad and restricting his travels and contacts within Iran.
  • State Department Cleans Up Diplomatic Mess After Biden Questions Pakistan Having Nuclear Weapons

    The U.S. State Department on Tuesday walked back remarks questioning Pakistan’s ability to keep its nuclear weapons safe by leftist President Joe Biden, who went as far as to call the South Asian nation, a nominal ally of America’s, “one of the most dangerous nations in the world.” Biden made the offending comments at a Democrat Party event at a private home in California last week. Offering disorganized remarks commenting on nuclear weapons generally, Biden mentioned Pakistan amid boasting yet again that he has a close personal relationship with dictator Xi Jinping of China. “I’ve spent more time with Xi...

    Despite the constant accusations against Westerners of being “intolerant,” “racist,” and “Islamophobic,” everywhere Islam is found, Islamic supremacists are lording it over innocent people, oppressing them, murdering them, and seeking further conquest and further Islamization. This occurs even in majority-Muslim countries where Sharia is not fully implemented. For example, there is a drive to further Islamize Indonesia, and Sharia parties are constantly pressuring Pakistan to implement more of Islamic law. Then there are the people of Balochistan. These are Iranians spread across the southeastern edge of the Iranian plateau in Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. They are resisting Pakistani jihadists whose...

    Islamabad apparently bought peace with the TLP. As in its frequent mobilisations over the last few years, the TLP has once again forced the Pakistani state onto the backfoot and enhanced its own political clout. A relatively new phenomenon, the TLP, was founded in 2015 by Khadim Hussain Rizvi, a firebrand cleric who died in November 2020. It now has a strong following among Pakistan’s Barelvi sect. At the heart of TLP’s ideology is the protection of the Prophet’s honour and a vigorous defence of Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy laws. In Pakistan, anyone deemed to have insulted Islam or the Prophet...

    Two police officers, three gunmen confirmed dead in attack claimed by the armed separatist group Baloch Liberation Army. Armed gunmen have killed two policemen as they stormed the Chinese consulate in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi, security officials say, in a raid claimed by ethnic Baloch separatists. Security forces killed all three attackers and secured the building shortly after the raid was launched on Friday morning, Pakistan's military said in a statement. No Chinese citizens or Pakistani civilians were killed, security officials said. "All of our Chinese friends and officials who work at the consulate, 21 in total, all...
  • Op-Ed: Iran is an artificial country

    Iran is an artificial country which includes a large number of ethnic groups: Persians, Azars, Kurds, Turkmen, Baloch, Arabs and more.... Southwestern Iran, the Khuzistan region, is home to the Arab minority group, but that is where most of the oil and gas resources are to be found underground, right under the feet of that Arab minority. They are Shiites, exactly like the majority Persians, but are treated with disdain by the government. In the past, the region was called Arabistan to allude to the ethnic group living there, but after the 1925 Persian Conquest, the Persians changed its name...

    Last Sunday, 50 men, women and children protested on Front Street about an issue that has escaped the attention of most of the world. If there isn’t a massive outcry soon, it could result in a massacre that would remind us of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1944. I’m talking about the town of Lyari in Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi. Imagine an area smaller than Ajax, yet inhabited by 1.5 million people, most of them working-class poor, cramped in homes separated by alleys little more than three metres wide. Surrounding this dense cluster of humanity is a force of 5,000 para-military...

    India must stand by the Balochs The Pakistan Air Force and Army, using aircraft, helicopters and communication sets given by the US and missiles given by the Chinese, claims to have killed Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, one of the founding fathers of the Baloch independence struggle. Thirty six other freedom-fighters belonging to the Bugti and Marri tribes were killed in a three-day operation which began August 24 in the Bhambore Hills, an area between the towns of Kohlu and Dera Bugti. According to Pakistani media reports, Balach Marri, who was believed to be the chief of the Balochistan Liberation Army...

    WISCONSIN, January 22: Pakistan's military dictator General Pervez Musharraf has thought up the “Final Solution” to the problem of Pakistan’s ethnic minorities: Nuke them. On January 4, he took to the national airwaves and delivered an apocalyptic threat to Baloch nationalists: “Don’t push us. It is not the 1970s. This time you won’t even know what hit you.” Pakistani media dismissed his menace as “intemperate” rhetoric. Even observers of the country’s strategic affairs failed to underscore its destructive undertones that re-echoed the military establishment’s enduring obsession with nuclear weapons to seek Pakistan’s security. Military leaders have long assumed that if...
