QUETTA: The head of the paramilitary Frontier Corps in Balochistan vowed on Friday to crush all those playing into the hands of foreign operators who were sowing discord in the province, Newsone reported.
Major General Sher Afgun, inspector general of the Frontier Corps (IGFC) in Balochistan, said that some internal elements were working for their external operators to undermine peace and progress in the province. But with the help of the masses, security forces will defeat the enemies of Pakistan.
He shared these views after visiting and meeting with the leader and tribes men of Dalbadin, Noushki and Taftan.
Maj Gen Sher Afgun pointed out that some self-styled leaders of the province were trying to misguide the Baloch people from the safe confines of their homes in Europe. However, the Baloch youth have rejected the call of secessionists, he said.
“People sitting abroad have attempted to lure the innocent Baloch, but the people particularly the youth have rejected them and seek to serve Balochistan and Pakistan,” IGFC said.
Maj Gen Sher Afgun also said that the paramilitary force has been given the responsibility of guarding Shia pilgrims coming and going to Iran.
He announced that the FC will set up two hostels in Quetta and Taftan for facilitating Shia pilgrims travelling to Iran.
