While he (Shahzain Bugti) blamed the security agencies and FC for all the ills in Balochistan, he had an unconvincing answer to the question about the rolling back last year of the Police Order of 2002 and allowing the Levies, which are under ‘Sardars’ (chieftains), to play a key role of maintaining law and order in the province.
Shahzain Bugti said the order replacing the Levies with police was an ill-conceived decision. “We have a system and tradition in Balochistan; Islamabad cannot impose new laws and change on us.”
In reply to a question about the issue of ‘Kalpars’ (people of the Bugti sub-clan expelled from Dera Bugti), he accused the federal government of interfering in the affairs of the Bugti tribe.
“Are Islamabad and petty government servants our uncles to dictate against the decision of Bugti jirga,” Mr Shahzain said, adding that elders of the tribe representing 150,000 individuals had taken a decision to expel 700 Kalpars.
“The will of jirga and the majority has to be respected.”
Shahzain Bugti, who is currently in Islamabad, is holding meetings with leaders of political parties to discuss the Balochistan issue. On Thursday, he met a US embassy official in a hotel.
“We have a system and tradition in Balochistan; Islamabad cannot impose new laws and change on us.”
SARDAR WATCH: Mr.Shahzain Bugti ! Does this system continues in independent Balochistan? To put it bluntly will sardari system continues?
This is the attitude of sardars, therefore we can conclude that if and when we get independence, each and every one of us who talk against sardars will be kicked out of Balochistan or make our family slaves for rest of generations. Our enemy is these sardars, who oppressed baloch people, denied education, pushed into dungeons, no economic, social development. Do you people, common baloch, educated, moderate support or bet our lives and future in the hands of such senseless, illiterate sardar morons?
There are better options for us and for our children. My dear fellow baloch, only way to salvage is thru education and socio-economic development, not dancing to the tunes of these cunning, selfish sardars. We the middle class educated baloch must be in forefront in freedom struggle, instead of handing over control to sardars. Its is hard to imagine what these sardars will do to us in an independent balochistan. Before they consolidate their power, we must mobilize under one umbrella and start taking control and become formidable force.
We are for independent balochistan, we are for a freedom, development, education for all, equal right for all ( including sardars), religious tolerance. We at SARDAR WATCH appeal to all saner elements in balochistan, oppose vehemently these crass sardars and save our children from their sardari system imposed under the grab of democracy.
Beware of sardars, to hell with sardari system.
