There are an estimated 100 million blogs plus currently in cyber space. While Pakistan has a minuscule share, a few hundred at a guess, not many are written from a Baloch perspective.
Hence my interest in a newly reactivated blog Blogging Balochistan by Gedroshian (Gedrosia being the ancient Greek name for Balochistan).
Anyhow, this is his latest take on the Balochistan scene:
"Is ISI dumb or are we just getting smarter?"_______________________________________
Allow me to give some coverage to some recent ISI untruths.
Balaach Killed Bugti
Here is the newCentralAsia coming up with another classic investigative report, telling us that it actually was a Baloch killing Baloch. Faujis of Pakistan totally innocent. “Our story is built on a narrow but dependable base of sources.” Yeah, we sure know of your dependable sources.
Some gems from the article:
Got any better conspiracy theory?
- The Army team was trying to negotiate with Bugti in order to evacuate him for medical treatment.
- Akbar Bugti was a prisoner of Balaach Marri
- The support for BLA had eroded considerably during the past few months
- The explosion in the cave was caused by a remote controlled device
My bet is our dear friend Tariq Saeedi at newsCentralAsia edited the draft of the story many times before he came up with the final edition.
Bugti’s sons are fighting for his property.
This little rubbish story was put forth in Urdu press, showing the sons of Bugti as greedy sardarzadas, who started fighting among themselves for money, soon after their father died.
Bugti’s Cave Palace
So, Bugti was getting some R & R at a 5 star cave at Kohlu, when the brave, noble and valiant faujis of Pak got him. Then there was electricity short circuit, and then the cave fell down. They did nothing. Really. Totally innocent. The Kohlu cave must have been built by a government contractor. (Thanks Adil Najam, and Onlooker for the pictures)
In short, some pictures of a hotel/palace were circulated, chain-mailed (hint: by Paki agencies) at Paki cyber space, revealing to the naïve pakis how truly bad, and evil Bugti was.
The Russian spies are back. Yeah, those KGB spies who told the world how BLA, and Baloch struggle for freedom is actually all a façade. Last week, Daily Jang decided to let a columnist translate that piece of rubbish into Urdu, and bring it to a broader audience in Pakistan, almost TWO Years after it was originally published, by our friends at newCentralAsia. Was it a coincidence? Did the columnist recently went through some old papers, and thought this article would be of interest to his readers. Naah, He was told/ordered to write this.
Aren’t these ISI guys supposed to be professionals? Shouldn’t they be good at maligning the Baloch, by now?
I have a funny feeling that this blog site is soon going to blocked for Pakistani readers. So read it while you can.
