What do Pakistani men in military fatigues brandishing sophisticated guns do in Balochistan? They rape. Yes, you read it right. Rape has always been a lethal weapon of the Pakistan Army, one that it has tried and tested several times. They used it on East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) and are once again using it in Balochistan. During the last fortnight Pakistan Army regulars and their backed Death Squad members raided the Keelkor area of Panjgur district. The sole objective of this raid was to subjugate the hapless Baloch people. And what better way to achieve this objective than to rape all the women. The thinking in Rawalpindi is that a community whose women folk have been ‘violated’ would easily concede to their demands.
