By Tariq Baloch
Pashtoon Khuwa Milli Awami Party’s chairman Mehmood Khan Achakzai admonished the state authorities during a public meeting here in Quetta on 25th June, 2012. He said, “Authorities mustn’t push Pakistan on such way that its entity vanishes from the map of world. Today, people say that Pashtoon Khuwa boycotted from previous election, was a blunder. Except three parties, all other parties have gone to London, including Nawaz Sharif and Benazir, it was decided that until Musharraf remains in uniform will not take part in election, because he had committed massacre of masses. Very sad to say, these discussed party didn’t comply with agreement”, Mehmood Khan regretfully narrated.
Further Mehmood Khan Achakzai said, “Today MQM is observing public meetings and saying they want fraternity between Pashtoons and their community, but they tell us on 12th May who killed our fellow nation men? It is cleared on all that Pashtoon even after hundred years don’t forget theirs avenge”, Mr. Achakzai informed.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai referring a book of British era said, “It is inscribed in a book written by English (Quetta Pishin) that in 1905 populated people were as like: Kakar 35452, Tareen including Achakzai 26691, Kasi 1064, Khilji 2600, others 829, Syed 7636, Baloch 6856 and Birahvi 6000. According to these statics Pashtoons were covering 91%, Birahvi Shahwani 8% whilst other settler nations were populated strength was higher than Baloch. We don’t want loss of Baloch, but we want formula of [two brothers and third accountability] is only acceptable to us. If chief minister is Baloch then governor must be a Pashtoon. In division of seats, we want equality.” Mehmood Khan demanded.
Furthermore Achakzai said, “Our drivers have been killed, they have been stopped and their trucks of rice are unloaded in Baloch areas. We can decide it is time whether of war or not. Whenever we fought for our lands have been occupied. In Afghanistan war is going on. If we make any decision about this, then Pashtoon will be annoyed. From Chaman to Sibi Pashtoon have to decide”, Mehmood Khan Achakzai said.
