KARACHI: Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister on Interior Affairs, Rehman Malik has said that Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) is involved in creating unrest and terrorist activities in Balochistan to destabilize the country.

He said they have reached to the roots of BLA and expressed confidence that it would be eliminated soon.

He further said that the BLA had made hostage to the people of Lyari, adding that two helicopters are being provided to Karachi police to take action against 'bhatta mafia' who were extorting money in the month of Ramazan.

Rehman Malik announced to give additional half a million rupees to the families of seven personnel who were killed in Coast Guard attack while their sons would be provided jobs in PCG and their daughters would be employed in NADRA.

So why america doesn't declare this particular organisation as terrorist?? They want Pakistan to take action on Haqqani network but themselves are not willing to take action against those sitting in Afghanistan causing trouble in Pakistan (e.g. BLA, TTP). This shows how this world is based on double standards. Every country acts only when it is in trouble itself.
