Modi responsible for Hub attack, destabalising Balochistan: Ex-interior minister


Strongly condemning Saturday’s suicide attack on a Sufi saint’s shrine in Khuzdar district, Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Rehman Malik on Sunday said that the terrorist attack in Balochistan’s Hub Tehsil is an attack on Pakistan and China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

“The attack on Dargah Shah Noorani was an attack on CPEC [China-Pakistan Economic Corridor], so the role of India should not be ignored,” Malik said at a news conference at his residence before leaving for Dubai where he was summoned by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. “Narendra Modi should be named in the FIR for his anti-CPEC and anti-Balochistan statements,” he added.

The PPP senator said CPEC was making India nervous  which is why Modi – whom he called the ‘chief of terrorists’ – had tasked his country’s agencies to sabotage it. He said India’s Research and Analysis Wing, in collaboration with Afghan intelligence and the agencies of some other countries, was using terrorism to destabilise the region.

“An attack in Balochistan just a few hours before a Chinese mega trade convoy arrived at Gwadar port is not just alarming but an administrative and intelligence failure,” Malik said. He demanded the attack be probed by a high-level commission.

The senator also asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to call an all parties conference to review the implementation of the National Action Plan across the country.

Malik stressed the need for an offensive policy to counter India and called for trying and executing arrested RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav. He said Pakistan’s feeble foreign policy had pushed it into international isolation.

The senator expressed great grief on behalf of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairman Asif Zardari over the loss of precious lives in Balochistan.



  1. Expressing grief on behalf of his Masters, Asif Zardari and his political Jamhoora, this 'fake' Doctor always has an idea of his own – just to remain in focus. He had been an Interior Minister and how much did he control ? All who are in the field are his 'left-over'. Got his son elected to Sind Assembly even if not a 'resident' of Sind !
