Nawab Akbar Bugti Killed

bugti.jpgBreaking News @ 12:20AM: Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti (wikipedia) along with his grandson Bramdakh Bugti, has been reported to have been killed in an operation carried out by security forces in Kohlu and Murree tribal areas on Saturday night. Security forces carried out an operation in the tribal areas where militants belonging to Bugti tribe resisted and after a heavy exchange of firing Nawab Bugti, along with his high-profile fellows involved in many terrorist activities in the country, was killed. (Geo TV)

This news has little to do with Karachi per se, but I feel it may directly affect the security situation in Karachi which has continued to get progressively worse.

    I think it was the right thing to do…Killing Bugtee sends the right signal to all the other fuedals creating trouble in Balochistan with UAE and Iranian help…I think the govt. should now focus on providing essential services to Balochi ppl(education and health care) and also provide economic opportunities to the balochis. so that the feeling of alienation can be contained and further trouble avoided

    Its amazing to see his extensive Wikipedia biography. MF**ker was educated in England and chose to follow his centuries ancesterial barberic rules. Those Getty Images were cool, so an actual professional photographer was accompanying him in the mountains, taking the pics. and uploading it to the net……well well…god bless Internet. I’m glad that the bastard is dead..I hope they cleanse Nawaz, Altaf, Benazeer and Zardari the same way.

    What can you say about an evil warlord who bragged about his murders, killed and drove out thousands of his own tribsmen, robbed country of billions, attacked national assets, made an army from Indian and Afghan fundings, declared war on Pakistan and wanted to dismember the Pak-Watan through Baluchistan Libration army? He would have been another Mujeeb if left alive. Good riddence, Thank God. One down, Few more to go. I pity and shame all those so called national politicians who are hailing him as a hero and condemning his death. These pygmaies are blinded by vested interests are no less deadly for the country than Bugti was. Well done Mush. May Allah protect Pak-watan.

    Just check this site. This is what BLA wants for Pakistan. Akbar Bugti was leading BLA to this end. May Allah protect Pakistan from evils of BLA and their backers in Delhi and Kabul. Our politicians and Mullahs crying over well deserved death of Bugti remain blind as usual, a bunch of court jesters and comedians good only for playing to the gallery.

    Is it possible that we invite all mentioned political,religious and military celebrities(Lanatullah Alahye) on this forum thread and show them how much they are despised by a layman of this country?

    pph:Dictatorship is not associated with Army only.I didnt find those so called democratic leaders less dictator than Army people like Zia,Ayub and Mush.

    This is awesome. Bugti was a traitor, sponsored by India. No private citizen should have rocket launchers and anti-aircraft guns. People that are protesting his death need to realize that he was in a battle with the government and was killing military soldiers along with blowing up government installations. Our so-called intellectuals, like Asma Jhanghir (HRCP), support idiots like Bugti when they are the very cause of human rights violations. Musharraf did something great for Pakistan. All others backed away from taking action against these anti-Pakistani elements. In the short term, there may be a little unrest, in the long-term this will result in Pakistan’s prosperity. Pakistan zindabad!

    Those prophets of doom who claimed that now Baluchistan insurgency would get out of hand should note the immediate surrender of 2000 hard core Marri fighters to the authorities after the killing of Bugti. The killing of this biggest traitor is having seriously positive affect for country already :)) There are no protests in Dera Bugti, Sui, Jafarabad, Naseerabad and Kohlu, the regions of BLA. The BLA insurgency is decapitated and inshallah, now it will die rapidly. No wonder we see Indians and Karzais crying hoarse over the death of this traitor. Well done army. But there is one more snake and he lives in the land of Thames and Big Ben.

    congratulations TM this post has become the most justified of the posts here at the KMB and the ever increasing number of very related comments (not a single one drifted off track as we usually do..amazing!) dispelled your fears about this not relating to the karachi.
    Believe it or not when i got this unfortunate news the first thing that crossed my mind was….”there goes MB again…” and iam sure you know what it means..but when i saw this post from you i was a bit shocked…anyways, i will continue to wonder how you managed to beat MB and others and come up with a very bold,timely and balanced post complete in all respect…taking the sensitivity of the issue into consideration.
    Thankyou for this post.i hope you will win the best Metroblogger of the year award very got my vote.

    Look Akmal as far as Rocket launchers, Mortrars and other weapons are concerned no neighbouring countries need to supply them to pakistan because you can find a huge stock piles of them around the tribal area’s and black markets of pakistan and even in 1947 when tribals have attacked kashmir they were well equiped and the whole world knows that Pakistan is the mother of all terrorists so it seems a joke when pakistan is spreading terrorism in the whole world on one hand and you are shamefully accusing that neighbouring countries are smuggling weapons in pakistan beacuase it was pakistan who has helped Aal Quaida and all other terror networks to set up in Afghanistan and kashmir not your so called neighbouring countries.So when you are himself feeding the snake then a time will come that it will infact bite its master.

    I just want to know if Govt. has right to do all those things which is not allowed in islam as they have shown with the death boty of Nawab AKbar Bugti.
    No matter wheather he was a hero or a crimnal or crimnal made by the reaction of suparity of Panjab & neglaction of small province but more than any thing which all should respact that is rules of Islam that no body can be burried without the permission of their relatives & who has permitted the Govt. to burry his body ???

    Its just simply means that whenever govt. has an option like Bhutto or Bugti they will repeat the history & no one will be able to do any thing against the currupt Army govt.

    Its high time for Govt. to arrange a free election comission to provide a free & fair election specially Army shoud stop the intarfaring in the democracy.
