In the Pakistani city of Karachi, there was a fatal attack on the citizens of China. Baloch rebels opposing the Chinese Naval Base and Deep Sea Port being built under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Gwadar are now targeting Chinese nationals even in cities. Not only this, 7 soldiers of Pakistan were killed by Baloch rebels in Balochistan recently. These incidents have raised the concern of the government led by Imran Khan.
In the wake of the growing attacks by the Baloch, Imran is now trying to seal Gwadar through a wall of barbed wire. According to a report, the Baloch rebels have changed their tactics. Now they have started targeting the Belt and Road project, Chinese investment and Chinese citizens in urban areas.
On Tuesday, a Chinese citizen and his accomplice were attacked in a car showroom on the outskirts of Karachi. They narrowly survived the attack. A week ago, another Chinese citizen’s car was blown up outside a restaurant in the posh Clifton area of Karachi. The responsibility of both these attacks was taken by the Sindhudesh Revolutionary Army.
The Sindhudesh Revolutionary Army issued a statement saying, ‘China and Pakistan are forcibly occupying lands under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. We will keep attacking to target them. China is investing $ 150 billion in Pakistan under CPEC. ‘
Explain that CPEC is the most important part of Belt & Road, the ambition project of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Through this, China will have direct access to the Arabian Sea. The Baloch people are opposing this plan of China and Pakistan. They allege that the Pakistan government is filling the coffers of the people of Punjab by taking away the natural resources of the region.
Baluchistan, the largest province in Pakistan, borders Afghanistan and Iran. This is strategically important. A large part of the CPEC passes through this province. The Gwadar port was earlier controlled by the Baloch which Pakistan has now handed over to China.
