Role of Armed Forces in the Socioeconomic Development of Balochistan​


Balochistan being the largest province of Pakistan, possesses its inherent strengths since the historic times, where it played a central role in international trade routes and politics. It acted as a buffer between major powers. The very basis of Pakistan’s future hinges upon the prosperity, integrity and development of Balochistan, being the heartland of the country. Although the province is rich in mineral resources, it is poor as per the socioeconomic indicators. Despite rich cultural heritage and availability of natural resources in abundance, the province has remained socioeconomically backward in the past. There have been concerted efforts to enhance socioeconomic indicators of the province, however, these efforts met partial success and could not achieve the desired results. Balochistan has recently witnessed greater developmental projects, connectivity and security, which are the vital precursors for development. In a national scenario where agro-industrial zones are saturated with economic competition, Balochistan offers new vistas of investment in the form of regional trade, blue economy, agriculture, mining, tourism and services industries. These potentials, if timely recognized, intelligently resourced and innovatively managed, can attract dynamic investment and human capital. The demographically stable zones even invite the opportunities of developing new industrial towns and markets.

The unrest of the past has now been defeated through various operations. Recently, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have gained considerable success in ensuring normalization through cohesive national efforts and by adopting a population-centric approach towards alleviating the sense of deprivation among the Baloch people. Pakistan Army, through an institutional initiative, piloted multiple developmental projects for the uplift of the province in general and the people of Balochistan in particular.

Japenese have an art of kintsugi: breaking potery and remaking it.
May be our armed forces are following that art. First destroying it and later reconstruting it.
Whatever you do is bound to fail.
Balochistan has cancer and you are applying polyfax.
I am sure for now that army wants to keep this area as buffer zone and ex fata. So these areas would remain disturb and we would always need an abnormally strong army to protect us from terroist and to stop balochistan from seperation. This theory wont work. This technique of staying responsible for all of Pakistan and not passing power to civilains wont work. Infact it is destroying Pakistan further ans further.
It is clear that 11 largest army and atomic power and what not could not able to kill few terrorist here and there. Usually involved in infighting and politics. Doesnt fit the narrative unless and untill army wants to keep the region that way distrubed.
SOLUTION:
The only solution is 1947 map. Where there is no such thing as balochistan but 4 princely states namely and phustoon regions won by british in second enlish Afghan war namely :
Kalat
Makran
Lasbela
Kharan
Shumali phuktunkhwa (that was the phustoon areas of balochistan and contains about 40 to 45 percent of its population which is mainly phustoon and hazara. They are pro Pakistani. This region is the seat of power in current balochistan ) these areas have been used by British to rule 4 princely states.
God knows who merged all these 5 regions into one and name it balochistan. Must be one of the enemies.

All areas willingly join Pakistan except Kalat. And later talks with qaid let the khan of Kalat to acceded to Pakistan. But internal family fight with his brothers started Etc. This is topic for another time, but that is one district of whole huge balochistan that has captured the narrative. All of balochistan join Pakistan willingly and fell hostage to one district. Balochistan has so many distrcts and one district has made it hostage of this fake narrative.

Now divide balochistan into 5 provinces. You have 3 capital cites already made.
1. Gawader capital city for makran (they want the seperate makran province and fighting for it from a very long time) they are brohi people, very loyal to Pakistan. Usually balochis say that they are baloch and we don't want seperation but the brohis do really want a seperate province. Develop gawader and one city is enough to run whole province and it has barley 20 lakh population....
2. hub capital city for lasbela. It has small industrial zone and power plant coming up due to cpec . It usually contains sindhi, brohi and balochi people. And they also want the province.
One port city hub properly developed is enough to support the province of 15 lakh or less people.
3. shumali phuktunkhwa
In every psl match fans of quetta gladiators carry the play cards of a seperate province. They are largest groups of people in balochistan amounting to 45 percent. And it contains hazara regions too. There is a natural demand for makran and shumali phuktunkhwa in local people.
Now 2 new cities can be developed for kalat and kharan or their district centers can act as capitals. very small provinces of 10 to 15 lakh population.

Our neutrals can buy mpa's. They can surely buy the sardars and let them do this. When media make the narrative and people demand it. No ine can stop it. When people stood behind altaf hussain army cannot touch him. When people stood against him army has cleared him out. No one can stand between peoples power and media narrative. Use force or propagnda and natural will of people.
Have all sadars in parliment have 5 chief ministers. Ofcourse this would be a disaster as before 1 assembly used to do corruption but now 5 assemblies would.
The solution to this problem is very efficient local bodies system which has educated trianed mayors directly elected and rule whole of the provinces.
Do deals with sardar. Our establishment is very fond of formulas. Let them be mps and cm. Let the sardars enjoy while mayors do all the work and select mayors carefully . People who can dilever. Lets even set a corruption scale 15 percent for sardars and mpa share and rest goes to mayor for development.
Develop proper police for all 5 newly made provinces and proper anti terrorism departments for all 5 provinces. Security is first thing required.
Fence and man the border properly. And hire able people who wont shake infront of terroist.
Army would return to their barracks and let the natural process run its course. Dont interfere.
You have done enough damage.
Bad would be eliminated out and good would stay through elections.
Have 5 state owned media gusied as private channels to paddle state propganda too.
And Pakistan would have 5 fully developed states in 20 to 30 years.
Give 10 seats in senate per province
7 direct and 3 females.
Or 7 each....
Because they have less seats in parliament so their majority in senate is ok. They would always rule the senate so that would also strengthen the unity if federation.
Thats what india has successfully done. Learn from them.
If isi has any break from going after prime ministers and political engineering rhen they would actually do their job of protecting country and making it safe enough so we can go there.
An indian can visit srinagar and i cannot visit zia
And for god sake make a balochi president for once. Always make a karachi president dont know why? Karachites dont even need that.

Thats a good idea actually. Education leads the path.

Actually FC is responsible. Army''s dedicated formation for the region is 44th LID raised in previous years.

Our neutrals can buy mpa's. They can surely buy the sardars and let them do this. When media make the narrative and people demand it. No ine can stop it. When people stood behind altaf hussain army cannot touch him. When people stood against him army has cleared him out. No one can stand between peoples power and media narrative. Use force or propagnda and natural will of people.
Thats like God-mode in a game.

An unfortunate aspect of this is that IT ISNT the PA’s job to do this - much like it wasn’t the US military’s job to do this in Afg.

A military is at the end a kinetic projection force for security - and regardless of the various training (which also has the impact of creating a versatile but overstretched or exhausted force) they cannot be as effective in this as would be a dedicated organization trained for economic development and social uplift.
Unfortunately, out of the entire state’s institutions the military is the only one that actually “works”(how and why isn’t the debate) but that is a double edged sword and degrades the military’s focus and effectiveness as it has to either bloat to take on assets dedicated to this or have its existing resources distracted and overstretched to make these tasks possible.

Role of Armed Forces in the Socioeconomic Development of Balochistan​


Balochistan being the largest province of Pakistan, possesses its inherent strengths since the historic times, where it played a central role in international trade routes and politics.

So do I.


This can be done without making new provinces.


Thats a good idea actually. Education leads the path.


Actually FC is responsible. Army''s dedicated formation for the region is 44th LID raised in previous years.


Thats like God-mode in a game.


Your ideas are good, some of its is being done.
None of its being done.
Learn from india.
They used to have far more dangerous seperation movement. Look at kashmir infront of your eyes they have done it. Seperated a moderate ladakh. It would get a statehood. Soon jammu would be removed and get a statehood and become normal states. Tiny kashmir can fight all they want and settling people can even sort that out.
Here our neutrals are playing government vs government. Enough damage has been done. You have power. Use it well. If you use it well we are willing to give you that power. But until now i have lost huge territory with the decision that certain people makes with my power.
Only solution is seperation of balochistan into 5 provinces.
People can start the movement. Media can create the environment. And when media create the environment everyone gets together to do it. And our army can play god. It always does why not for a good cause.

5 different smaller provinces with one developed capital city each, would totally work. Thats how it was before Pakistan when it was peaceful.

The neutrals dont have to play god. It need social dialog with local lords and sardars. They are pathetic at goverance. Pakistan army woos them but they are in return not able to woo the public. So Pakistan army is more hated in public for supporting and imposing these dumb corrupt colonial people on them..
These sardars should be kept in loop. They run the provincial parliament. They have 5 cheif ministers. Do whatever corruption etc. Just let army have good educated local bodies. It should be agreement of sorts. We would run the province efficiently through local bodies and the sardars would reap the benefits and enjoy their rule. It can be done. Unless true form of democracy came which would come inshallah in my grandchildrens time.

Once i met my friend from balochistan and he told me that balochistan need a 5 year rule by president and capital. It is damaged beyond repair. Easy fixes wont work. So if you have solutions people may be able to give you chance.
We dont need a second capital for this balochistan. That would fail too. We need a makran province with gawader as capital. And we need shumali phuktunkhwa with quetta as capital. Both are viable with lasbella with hub as capital.
And i dont need this with balochistan. It is also need to be done with punjab.
Bahawalpur state should be made a province with bahawalnagar as calital, Multan should be made a province with multan city as capital. Potohar should be made a province with rawalpindi as capital. And central punjab can be divided into north and south punjab with lahore and faisalabad as capital.
5 provinces in punjab and 5 in balochistan.

Time is also to accept defeat and do larger dialog with india to stop funding terrorism in balochistan. Thats the only support they have.

Learn from india. The kashmiris may have more resources then Pakistanis . Indians may have taken over their land. But they aren't able to win their hearts for 75 years. They can do whatever they want, but cannot win hearts.
Pakistan only need to win hearts of balochistan. There are so little people. Good governance would give Pakistan 5 developed provinces in balochistan, in no time where every investor want to come. Remember makran belt, lasbela belt and shumali phuktunkhwa are never anti Pakistan. They are our assets.

I want to say to our neutrals. You have powers. We would give you more. But what you do with our power? Only stay in seat more and more and political engineering. where engineering needs to be done to normalise things you do nothing.

One more thing we need money for infrastructure. And we have none.
Capture all the drugs. Rather then burning sale it in europe and usa. And spend it on infrastructure in underdeveloped areas. I won't say or elaborate more on this. Everyone knows what how and what else happens in those mysterious areas.

The sole purpose of an Army is to defend the sovereignty of the State. Nothing more nothing less.
I am too tired to google and post the meme of the guy standing with face down and hands on lovehandles after loosing the match with india.
That fits here. Imagine it yourself

You naughty naughty. Btw I want to give a suggestion to military establishment and it's "commercial wing". It should create its own crypto currency, name it "Lagta raho B Bhai (LRBB). And make it compulsory for everyone to have atleast 100 such coins to prove their patriotism.

And that is the purpose of these reforms and projects, killing and dumping may reduce terrorism in the short term but for long term reduction the youth in these areas must be given education and jobs so that they don't join militant groups.
