Ali SukhanverThe asylum application filed by Nawab Akbar Bugti’s grandson Brahamdagh Bugti has been rejected by the Swiss immigration authorities. This rejection was on the basis of Pakistan’s decision of declaring him a terrorist. Pakistan had declared Brahamdagh Bugti-led Baloch Republican Party BRP as a terrorist organization. It is something very positive on the part of the Swiss government that it honoured the decision of Pakistan and did not accept Brahamdagh’s application for asylum. The decision of the Swiss government is a proof that the whole world is united against the menace of terrorism. Terrorism is such a horrible scourge that its remedy is next to impossible unless all countries get united against it.  Pakistan has expressed gratitude to the Swiss government for turning down the political asylum plea submitted by this self-exiled Baloch separatist leader.

It is disappointing in a sense that the terrorists have become so strong in India that they succeeded in luring a high official to help them out in a terrorist activity. Certainly the government of India and the intelligence agencies of India will have to be more vigilant and more alert in keeping an eye on all officials working in security agencies of India along with the terrorists.Read More »PATHANKOT DISASTER
