Imran's 'New Pakistan' was shaken by the Pashtun, Sindh and Baloch movements
New Delhi: The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan‘s’New Pakistan‘One is dissolving both the concept and the country. In the last few days, three different areas of Pakistan have been armed against the military-backed Khan government.
Pashtuns are angry over the filing of terrorism charges against the parents of fugitive human rights activist Gulalai Ismail; In Sindh, the Lok Khan government is protesting against the Presidential Ordinance to occupy their islands; Activists from Balochistan met in Canada to protest against human rights abuses by the Pakistani government against the Baloch people.
When Khan introduced the word New Pakistan in 2017, it was very hopeful, optimistic and a vision for Pakistan. After all, Khan was a famous, successful international cricketer. The people of the troubled country expected Khan to play another brilliant innings in his political innings. However, two years later, Khan is an absurd politician and the new Pakistan is a bad carbon copy of the old Pakistan which has spread public discontent across the country.
The world is watching how Pakistan accuses the elderly parents of activist Ismail, who fled to the United States in September 2019 after his country was accused of treason. Embarrassed to flee the country under his noses, a Pakistani anti-terrorism court has charged his parents – retired university professor Mohammad Ismail and his wife – with involvement in terrorist attacks in 2013 and 2015.
Gulalai is an activist of the Pashtun Tahfuz Movement (PTM), which has been campaigning for Pashtun human rights and exposing Pakistani atrocities against them. Gulalai, an award-winning activist, was on the right side of the Pakistani establishment, whose voice was criticized. The Taliban For its horror. However, once he began exposing the Pakistani military and intelligence forces behind the rise of the Taliban – he found himself among the people on their border. Now, Pakistan is intimidating his parents.
Elderly American diplomat Alice Wells shared her concerns about Gulali’s family in a tweet: “We are concerned about the news of Gulalai Ismail’s family and his father’s continued detention today. We urge Pakistan to support a peaceful assembly, the right to freedom of expression. , And the paired process. ”
Fed up with Gulalai’s parents, Pashtun groups are running a pro-slavery campaign – #WestandWithGulailiFamily. Separately, the youth have been campaigning for a long time against the Pashtun government’s hooliganism-kidnappings and disappearances, internal displacement and military operations by the Pashtun security forces. Elderly people from the community have also been holding rallies and urging the government to rehabilitate the displaced and curb the Taliban.
Unrest continues from the northwestern region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the vast southwestern region of Balochistan.
Some big names in the Balochistan movement gathered in Toronto, Pakistan on Sunday to protest against human rights abuses by the Pakistani government. Author Tarak Fattah, Baloch activist Karima Baloch, Latif Johar of the Human Rights Council of Balochistan and other leaders held a rally to commemorate the disappearance of activist Shabir Baloch, who was abducted by Pakistani authorities in October 2016.
The protest, #ReleaseShabirBlooch, called on Pakistan to grant freedom and restore human rights in the areas of Balochistan, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Apart from denial of rights and dignity, the Baloch people also accuse Pakistan of economic exploitation, which they say China is colluding with China to extract mineral resources from Balochistan through the Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Baloch activists have also shed light on the activities of a secret death squad set up by the Pakistani government and army in Balochistan.
This massive disturbance in large areas of Pakistan has also taken over the eastern province of Sindh.

Any occupation of the islands would be against the country.” The ordinance fears that if the government occupies several islands, a variety of indigenous people, including fishermen, will be affected.
