Imran Khan said it is unfortunate that terrorists targeted Hazara mine workers in a thinly populated area and also blamed the previous governments for not giving due attention to Balochistan and always preferred to form an alliance with Baloch leaders, who became the biggest hurdle in transferring development funds to the grassroots level.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, militants kidnaped the 11 coal miners from in Balochistan, while they were on the way to work and shot them dead. The episode took place in the remote Mach area of the southwestern Balochistan province, a key route to the CPEC project.

The ISIS claimed the responsibility for the attack through its Amaq news agency via its Telegram communications channel, Reuters said in its report.

The Hazara community is a minority in Pakistan and Afghanistan and has been persecuted for decades. It accounts for at least 19 percent of the population of Afghanistan and over 65,000 are residents of Pakistan, mostly living in Quetta.


Following the attack on coal miners, Pakistan’s Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari blamed the “Indian-funded terrorists” in Balochistan. “Indian funded terrorists in Balochistan getting more desperate as development comes to the province,” she tweeted.

Brig. (Retd.) Mehmood Shah, a security and defense analyst, claimed that the Indian Army is “highly unprofessional as it is directly targeting the civilians at LoC and using rape as a weapon of war in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.” 

Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Ijaz Awan, another Defense Analyst, told Pakistan Radio that through the India-US deal, India is using satellites to “hit targets” in Pakistan, and “use of modern technology is mandatory to counter such cowardly attacks by India.”

Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Ijaz Awan, a defense expert, argued that more stringent actions against the terrorists should be taken to curb the hazard of terrorism from its roots. He claimed that the “militants Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav was one of the Indian commanders deputed to create instability in Balochistan.”

“There could be many more such elements and our intelligence agencies need to expose these culprits. There needs to be a befitting response from Pakistan against the Indian aggressive acts,” he said to Radio Pakistan.
