Salahuddin Haider


Corps Commander Lt-General Humayun Aziz of the 5th Corps summarily rejected the idea of Balochistan separating from the country or Pakistan’s involvement in Pulwama incident saying America itself had said nothing about Jaishe Mohammad being responsible for it. Speaking as chief guest at a seminar, “Post Pulwama—threat of Hybrid war and what next—“ Monday, remarked that post-Pulwama “got us very close of threat of conflict, when India reacted very irresponsibly, self-generating the incident, but Pakistan won the aftermath of the happening, which the nation lauded, but international community must awaken itself, and United Nations, needed to re-evaluate its role. The event was organized by Karachi Council on Foreign Relations, whose chief Ikram Sehgal, who also is the chairman of K-Electric, paying eloquent tribute to the army for bringing peace back in the country. General Aziz said recalled that there often was talk of insurgency in Sindh, and separatist tendencies in Balochistan, but he said he had himself had served in the south-western province, felt completely at ease, moved around freely, ate with ordinary Balochis, who were extremely hospitable. “There is no chance of Balochistan separating from the country” he said and remarked” that we are a very,very strong nation, if we put our heart and mind together, our economy will improve, and Pakistan will gain strength.UN must re-evaluate to new realities, re-calibrate itself to challenges of post world war. In an oblique reference to United States, the four-star military officer thought that “a dominant power must not put all its eggs in one basket. As for Jaishe Mohammad, he said between February 14 to 19, United States said clearly that Pakistan had nothing to do withb it, but jaishe Mohammad spoiled the broth by claiming responsibility, just to gain cheap popularity Answering questions later, he agreed that National Action Plan must be implemented in “letter and spirit”, but reminded the audience being nuclear power laid heavy responsibility on States possessing. Same was true for Pakistan which indeed is extremely careful about its obligation to world peace.
