Rehman Malik Govt to quash cases

Rehman Malik 3
ISLAMABAD - Interior Minister Rehman Malik announced on Thursday to withdraw all the criminal cases against the disgruntled Baloch leaders, including top separatist Herbyar Mari and Barhamdagh Bugti.
The announcement came days after a US congressman tabled a resolution in US House of Representatives, espousing self-determination for Balochistan, Pakistan’s southwestern province that has caused ripples across the country.
Malik urged all the Baloch and national leadership to participate in the All Parties Conference being convened by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on the unrest in Balochistan. Regarding FC, he said that now onward the paramilitary force would follow provincial government’s order. He said he had met Herbyar Mari in London.
Regarding the missing persons, Malik came up with a new version, saying that those being termed as missing persons were killed during Jihad in Afghanistan. He said the relatives and heirs of the missing persons must accept the fact.
Earlier, Shah Zain Bugti set out eight points of demands as precondition to starting dialogue. On the list was a call for legal action against former president Pervez Musharraf for killing Nawab Akbar Bugti.
Bloch leader Nawabzada Harbyar Marri met Nawabzada Brahamdagh Bugti in Switzerland and discussed the current situation in Balochistan. In response to this, Rehman Malik agreed that legal action would be taken against Musharraf.
He also said the Frontier Constabulary would only act on call from the provincial government.
