Pakistanis in Athens are calling on Muslims to gather outside the Indian embassy on Sunday to protest “blasphemy” against Mohammad, the founder of Islam.
The Pakistani narrative speaks of the so-called extremism of the Indian government against Muslims in an attempt to divert their own attention of persecuting, marginalising and massacring Muslims in Balochistan.
Will the Government allow the gathering?
Andreas Mountzouroulias, Editor-in-Chief of Directus, said a “large population group has been created in Greece which operates extortionately. In short, Greece’s foreign policy is in danger, it tends to become a hostage of the so-called “Pakistani community”
“The show of force with the marches of a specific group of Pakistanis in the centre of Athens, is a signal of danger that we must not ignore. The Greek government has the ultimate responsibility for this incredible provocation against India and immediate action must be taken!
“Pakistan is considered the No. 1 ally of Turkey at the moment! Turkey and Pakistan have embarked on a joint media (misinformation) strategy to create a narrative that fits the geographical, political and military interests of the Mediterranean and South Asia.
“This is clearly a Turkish-Pakistani information alliance in the context of the Turkish hybrid war, which has been waged by Ankara against Greece in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean for at least two years.
“Do not forget that Turkey and Pakistan are constantly conducting exercises in the Aegean & Eastern Mediterranean. Pakistan and Turkey are coming closer.”
Όπως είχε προβλεφθεί, ο S.Nawaz καλεί τους μουσουλμάνους να συγκεντρωθούν την Κυριακή έξω απο την Ινδική πρεσβεία για να διαμαρτυρηθούν για "βλασφημία" κατά Μωάμεθ & Ισλάμ

Meanwhile, multiple locations in Jammu and Kashmir were on Thursday raided by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), in connection with a major crackdown on cross-LoC (Line of Control) trade and a terror-financing case.
According to ANI, the joint operation was carried out by the NIA and Jammu and Kashmir police along with the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
The joint team led by the NIA also conducted searches at other locations in Srinagar as a part of the crackdown on terror in North Kashmir.
The development comes a day after the NIA conducted raids at four places in the Union Territory including three locations in Baramulla and one in Handwara district in the cross LoC Trade and terror financing case.
The raids were carried out at the premises of suspected cross LoC traders and connected persons, and the NIA claimed to have seized digital devices along with incriminating documents during these searches.
The case pertains to the generation of additional profits through a cross LoC trade mechanism between Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and using funds so generated for fomenting terrorist activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
The trade was started in the year 2008 via two Trade Facilitation Centres (TFCs) located at Salamabad, Uri in Baramulla District and Chakan-da-Bagh in Poonch district.
The trade has been suspended since the month of April 2019. The case was registered suo-moto by NIA on December 16, 2016.
Elsewhere, the Free Balochistan Movement (FBM) in a statement to the media condemned the violent attack of Pakistan forces on the peaceful vigil of the families of forcibly disappeared persons and other peaceful protesters in Karachi.
The FBM has urged the international community to take notice of the violence of the Pakistani forces against Baloch women and children.
They added that, “the world should realise that Pakistan has illegally occupied Balochistan and to sustain its illegal colonisation, Pakistan is resorting to inhuman and brutal violence against the Baloch nation and rampaging international laws.”
The Karachi police on Monday night arrested dozens of protesters, including women, who were staging a sit-in outside the Sindh Assembly against the abduction of the two missing students.
According to Pakistan media reports, authorities’ heavy-handed approach against Baloch protesters went viral on social media as people call for action to be taken against police brutality.
The spokesperson of the Free Balochistan information department said that the case of Balochistan is similar to that of East Timor’s occupation and forcible annexation to Indonesia in 1975. It also declared East Timor its 27th province.
Like Today’s Pakistan in Balochistan, Indonesia had resorted to violence and killed thousands of people in East Timor to maintain its occupation. Pakistan occupied Balochistan in 1948 and has been involved in atrocities against Baloch ever since, read the statement.
The spokesperson further explained that the violence perpetrated by Pakistan includes enforced disappearance of Baloch people, arbitrary arrests, extrajudicial murder, in-custody torture and murder and fake encounters in which hundreds of unarmed Baloch have been killed in cold blood.
The latest indiscrimination against Baloch students and racial profiling of Baloch youth at Education centres in Punjab has brought Pakistan’s hatred against Baloch people to a new level, added the statement.
Pakistani forces’ brutalities against families of enforced-disappeared persons have become a common occurrence in Balochistan.
The spokesperson said that the current situation in Balochistan and the oppression of Baloch people by Pakistan call for international attention and intervention in Balochistan to stop Pakistan’s atrocities.
FBM statement further maintained in 1978 the then Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser recognised East Timor’s annexation by Indonesia and termed it de facto and later the Australian-led peace forces intervened and liberated East Timor from Indonesia.
The Baloch people expect the international community to act like Malcolm Fraser and Australia and intervene in Balochistan to stop Pakistani aggression and atrocities on Baloch people and help the Baloch nation to free itself from the yoke of Pakistan’s tyranny and occupation.
