Talibanisation rising in Balochistan

ISLAMABAD: Talibanisation has touched a dangerous level in Balochistan. The Pashtun Tehreek Taliban and the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi have joined hands with each other, in a move seen as extremely harmful for Balochistan.


This was revealed in a report that claimed the law and order situation in Balochistan has taken a new direction due to the collusion of two groups. According to the report, district Zhob in Balochistan is under the control of the Taliban where Talibanisation is rapidly increasing. Like Fata, the extremists are targeting pro-government tribal leaders in the district.


The report, issued by the Conflict Monitoring Centre Islamabad, said that militancy in Balochistan has taken a complex shape. Among the Baloch community some of the formerly secular individuals in Balochistan have tilted towards extremism. It is not a secret that the militants of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi are targeting the Hazara community of Balochistan. On the other hand, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Balochistan is working in the Pashtun areas.


According to the report, Talibanisation is touching the red line in Balochistan and the Taliban are issuing orders to the local tribal Sardars. The report further revealed that the operations and activities of the security forces have been confined in Balochistan as a result.

This report is 100% right..I know many people who are in settled in Zhob, and almost all of them have confirmed it..

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is essentially Punjabi-Tehrek-e-Taliban. So let us call it what it is. Jhang is in Punjab .... the home town of Heer Ranja.

it is our own creation...Afghan strategic depth...

I hope British, or Dutch are even better, if willing to take over this country as a colony. Then all the prosperity will return and there will be no problem with law and order either. Kindly contact Dutch authorities if they are willing to do this. Regards, from the netherlands

This news is without evidence. Did conflict monitoring centre noticed Karachi situation where large number of Sunnies are being targeted in the name of ASWJ, Ahle Hadees, Wahabies and Pathans. The buses are being burnt roads being blocked. Is there any law enforcing agency to bring culprits to justice?

What do you expect when this country is full of donkeys. naeem United Kingdom This report is correct. i agreed but greedy its correct.
