Baluchistan Deputies Resign

Three Majlis deputies representing Iran’s Baluchistan have resigned in protest to what they called Tehran’s inability or unwillingness to maintain security in their province. On Thursday, two suicide bombings in quick succession killed at least 27 people at Zahedan’s Grand Mosque. Zahedan is the capital of Baluchistan.

The three deputies who have resigned were Hossein Ali Shahriari, Abbas Ali Noura and Peyman Forouzesh.

Martial rule in that province and collect every single bullet from private homes.No cars come and no cars leave the area.

Arrest everyone living in a 50 meters radius of a gun.

AND deport the rigi family right down to their dogs into Pakistan where they will learn to appreciate Iran.

Bless Iran, when Iran is being insulted as a dictatorship by western media, then at least act in your provinces as such and clean the are aof Wahabi saudi Arabian agents.

Well said Dariush. I agree and firmly believe that Iran has to have an airtight clamp down on Balochistan and a total SEALING of the Pakistan border. A country as rich and resourceful as Iran can easily do it.

Morrocco built a 2000 kms of minefields, sensors, forts and watch towers against the POLISARIO in western Sahara. Iran should flood the region with IRGC, Artesh and Basij. The local Baloch population is barely 2 million and of whom perhaps a few hundred are brainwashed Wahabbi terrorists operating from Pakistan. They need to be summarily executed and hung in major squares. Iran also needs a strict house to house bio-metric identification of all residents of Balochistan. It is not a very difficlt problem, more of a nuisance.

Iran will definately succeed in sorting this Wahabbi plague out. This spectere of Wahabbi terrorism is disgrace on Islam, the Saudi pimps and all nations who support these murderous cowards. The gloves need to come off and it is high-time to eradicate this Wahabbi terrorist menace in Iran and around the world. It is also not in the west's strategic interest to either support or fund these Wahabbi madrassa thugs. They will also create a problem for China in the long run if these wahabbi terrorists are allowed to fester in the failed Pakistani state.

It's pure dreaming if you guys think the age-old Baluch problem could be resolved by security/military means only. Iran needs to embrace Baluchistan as its own. Instead of flooding it with IRGC and basijis, they need to send an army of reconstruction and development, it is also less expensive and more affordable for the central government too.

I would agree that there has to be a coordinated economic development and military/security strategy. The fuedal tribal structure and Wahabbi influences also needs to be eradicated. Iran has been very successful in integrating all non-Persian minorities, even the majority of Kurds are now very pro-Iran and are actually excelling in sanctions busting. The Baloch problem is a minor one and it will take patience and a multi-facted approach. But the border insecurity and infiltration from Pakistan has to be a priority. I am very familiar with the Balochistan issue and its military implications. The combination of the entrenched tribal structure, lower educational standards, poor infrastructure and the hold of the fuedal clans and recently Wahabbi/Salafist terrorists. Also the Afghan and Pakistani smugglers and terrorists tend exploit Baloch resentment.Recently anti-Iran powers have been exploiting the lawlessness in Pakistani Balochistan to promote their Iran destabilization agenda.

The real Baloch problem is in Pakistan where the Punjabi dominated US supported military has been fighting an increasingly brutal civil war against the Baloch separatists. Check out the BLA (Baloch Liberation Front) and Baloch Warna websites.

During the 1973-1977 Baloch insurgency by Marri, Bugti and Bizenjo tribes in Pakistan, the Iranian military had to intervene with a speacial forces brigade and two squadrons of CH-47C and AH-1J Cobra gunships to support the Pakistani military or it would have faced collapse. Iranian military has formidable experience in rooting out these pin-prick insurgencies from Balochistan to Oman (Dofar) and I firmly believe that a twin track approach will work fine. It is only a question of time and patience. The IRGC is not one to shy away from a fight.

Thank you kindly Mr. Uskowi, for your invitation to write a piece on this very sensitive Baluchistan issue. It is a very complex issue stradling many dimensions, Iranian, Pakistani, regional, extra-territorial powers (US, India, Russia and China) as well as the natural resources and "great game" strategic ambitions, namely US regional agenda and China's investment in the Pakistani Gwader port in hopes of accessing the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean in their "string of pearls" future initiative.

I may take you up on your kind offer and submit an objective assessment when time and research allow. BTW, you have an excellent blog that serves as an intellectual avenue to discuss these crucial issues and hopefully promote better understanding and the cause of peace.
