Fauji Overseas Employment Services and a visiting team of Bahrain National Guards are recruiting Pakistanis. Lahore, Pakistan. 12/03/2011

Scores of young men lined up before Pearl Continental Hotel, on the Mall Road of Lahore were anxious of their turn to appear before the visiting delegation of Bahrain National Guards (BNG). These men, mix of retired armed forces personals as well as newly graduates in 20s of their age, had come across far flung areas of Punjab to apply for recruitment of Bahrain National Guards, an armed force of Bahrain which is going to stretch its duties fabric due to uprising against the Khalif regime of Bahrain.

Pakistan is all time favorite state for Bahrain to hunt police and army personnels. A large number of soldiers and police men of Pakistani origin are already serving in Bahrain, a Shia dominant country by its population but governed by sunni regime, which is scared of majority population and mostly dependent on imported police and army personnels.

These job seekers had come here, as most of them told, on lead of an advertisement of Fauji Overseas Employment Services, a manpower exporting agency which is a subsidiary of Fauji Foundation, a multi dimensional business organization of ex military men of Pakistan. The Fauji Overseas Employment Services in its latest advertisement published in widely circulated daily newspapers, has advertised seven positions from officers of major ranks to mess waiters and cooks for Bahrain National Guards. According to the criterion mentioned in advertisement, except one position of security guards, all six are reserved for persons retired from military, paramilitary or police.

Shafaqt Nazir, a young man hailed from Shakar Garh town of Punjab province had applied a few days ago for the position of security guard in Bahrain National Guard. Shafaqt Nazir who had been employed in Bahrain some years ago, told that he wanted to go there again. According to him Bahrain was a better place to earn than many gulf countries. Shafqat Nazir, a high school graduate (Matriculation) told that one of his family member based in Bahrain informed him about the recruitment for Bahrain National Guards. He thinks it an easy way to go to Bahrain and earn than paying handsome money to recruiting agents for getting a work visa for some Arab country. On the day when this scribe has a chat with Shafqat Nazir near Pearl Continental Hotel where initial tests were being conducted for recruitment of Bahrain National Gurads, he was accompanying one of his mate, another applicant for a security job in Bahrain.

While telling the story of recruitment procedure Shafqat Nazir told that in the hotel there was a long queue of applicants, most of them retired armed forces personals. First of all they take physical measurement of applicant and in ordinary manner check bones for any fracture. If things are OK then they will issue you a token and will ask you to submit your documents which include national identity card and education certificate, rest of the procedure will take about three weeks in completion and successful applicants would be declared later.

A number of applicants looking for their chances to turn up before the Bahrain National Guards recruitment team, had a little knowledge about Bahrain, and hardly a few of them had some awareness about ongoing political turmoil in that country where they were minded to join security force. On a question that what you think if you have to face only the raged crowds and massive agitations as part of your duty, most of applicant were looking nervous, but in fact these guys are more nervous of their unemployed and idle present in Pakistan than that of a insecure rather endangered future in Bahrain.

    بحرین.حکومت مخالف مظاہروں کے دوران پاکستانی نوجوان قتل
    زاہد شیخ

    بحرین کے دارلحکومت منامہ میں گزشتہ شب حکومت مخالف مظاہروں کے دوران30 سالہ نوجوان پاکستانی عبدل ملک کوشیعہ بحرینی نوجوانوں نے چاقوئو ں کے پے درپے وار کرکے موقع پر ہلاک کردیا .جبکہ اس کا دوسرا ساتھی ہسپتال میں زندگی اور موت کی کشمکش میں مبتلا ہے .
    سفارتخانہ پاکستان کے ایکٹنگ سفیر اورنگزیب نے اس واقعہ کی تصدیق کرتے ہوئے مزید بتایا ہے. کہ عبدل ملک اپنے دوست کے ہمراہ گھر سے سودا سلف لینے نکلا تھا . تو سامنے سے آنے والے حکومت مخالف بحر ینی شیعہ مظاہرین نے پاکستانی شلوار قمیض میں ملبوس دو پاکستانیوں کو گھیر لیا اور انکو تلواروں زنجیروں اور چاقوئوں کے ذریعے تشدد کا نشانہ بنایا. اور عبدل ملک موقع پر ہی جا ںبحق ہو گیا اور اسکا دوسرا ساتھی شدید زخمی حالت میں ہسپتال منتقل کر دیا گیا . جو موت اور زندگی کی کشمکش میں مبتلا ہے . اسی طرح کا دوسرا واقعہ پرل اسکوائر کے قریب مرکز نعیم میں پیش آیا یہاں پر چار پٹھان پاکستانیوں کو انکے گھر کے باہر شیعہ مظاہرین نے جو آہنی راڈ اور ڈنڈوں سے لیس تھے نے زبردست تشدد کا نشانہ بنایا گیا .
    .اسی طرح کا تیسرا واقعہ منامہ کے مچھلی چوک میں پیش آیا . یہاں پر شیعہ مظاہرین نے کام سے واپس آنے والے امیر حمزہ بنگلہ دیشی کو اس کے گھر کے باہر زود کوب کرتے ہوئے اسکی کلائی توڑ ڈالی .جب امیر حمزہ کے دیگر بنگلہ دیشی ساتھی اسکو ابتدائی طبی امداد دینے کے لئے پہنچے تو گلیوں میں پہلے سے تاک لگائے ہوئے شیعہ مظاہرین نے انکو بھی آڑے ہاتھوں لیتے ہوئے ڈنڈوں سے زود کوب کیا . اور پولیس کے پہنچنے پر رات کی تاریکی کا فائدہ اٹھاتے ہوئے فرار ہو گئے.
    اس سے قبل علی الصبح شیعہ مظاہرین نے جامعہ بحرین یونیورسٹی کے اندر زبر دستی گھس کر دھاوابول دیا. اور سنی طلبہ و طالبات کو زود کوب کیا اور عملے کو بھی بری طرح تشدد کا نشانہ بنایا اور جاتے ہوئے پارکنگ میں کھڑی گا ڑیوں کے شیشے بھی توڑ گئے.بحرین میں مقیم پاکستانیوں میں اس واقعے کے بعد گہری تشویش پائی جاتی ہے .

  • A group of lawmakers in Bahrain’s parliament is urging the king to impose martial law, a day after police failed to disperse protesters occupying the capital’s financial center.

    A look at the economic and political status of selected countries facing unrest in North Africa and the Middle East.

    The pro-government Independent bloc of lawmakers “has called for the Bahrain Defence Force to intervene and protect national security and stability,” the official Bahrain News Agency said. They urged the country’s ruler, King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, to impose martial law for three months, as well as a curfew.

    It is not clear how the government will respond to the appeal. The government withdrew the army from the streets last month and called for a dialogue with the opposition.

    The country’s crown prince, Sheik Salman Bin Hamad al-Khalifa, renewed that call for dialogue Sunday night, soon after police firing tear gas and rubber bullets were unable to disperse thousands of mainly Shiite antigovernment protesters who blocked roads and prevented access to buildings in the capital’s financial district.

  • 1,000 Saudi Troops Arrive In Bahrain To Quell Unrest
    Gus Lubin | Mar. 14, 2011, 8:33 AM

    5:07 ET: First King Abdullah stomped out the protests in Saudi Arabia. Now he has sent troops to Bahrain to keep protesters out of the region.
    Bahraini newspaper Akhbar Al Khaleej says 1,000 Saudi troops have arrived to protect oil, power facilities and banking center — reported also by Bahrain State TV and Al-Watan. UAE forces are also expected to arrive today.
    Bahrain put the call out yesterday after protesters blockaded the financial district in some of the largest unrest yet, according to the FT.
    Saudi Arabia and UAE have far more oil money than Bahrain, and Saudia Arabia in particular has a powerful US-backed military.
    8:29 ET: Bahrain’s Shiite opposition says any intervention by Gulf Arab forces is a declaration of war and occupation, according to Reuters.

  • Bahrain opposition: Gulf move is war declaration

    By REUTERS
    Published: Mar 14, 2011 14:50 Updated: Mar 14, 2011 14:50

    MANAMA: Bahraini opposition groups including the largest Shiite Muslim party Wefaq said on Monday that any intervention by Gulf Arab forces on the Gulf island is a declaration of war and occupation.

    The comments came in response to reports that Bahrain had called in forces from Gulf neighbors to put down unrest by the Shiite majority protesting over what they say is discrimination by the royal family.

  • These Are The Controversial Satellite Photos That Set Off Protests In Bahrain
    Gus Lubin | Mar. 2, 2011,

    The following images have contributed to anti-government riots in Bahrain.
    A few years ago, Bahrain’s oppressed and overcrowded Shiite majority began using Google Earth to view palaces and other estates that make up 95% of the country. As these images churned up discontent, the government blocked Google Earth. However, an anonymous PDF guide was distributed by email.
    The NYT’s Tom Friedman names these images in a list of “not-so-obvious forces” that fed the mass revolt.

  • OP-ED COLUMNIST
    This Is Just the Start
    By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN
    Published: March 1, 2011

    GOOGLE EARTH While Facebook has gotten all the face time in Egypt, Tunisia and Bahrain, don’t forget Google Earth, which began roiling Bahraini politics in 2006. A big issue in Bahrain, particularly among Shiite men who want to get married and build homes, is the unequal distribution of land. On Nov. 27, 2006, on the eve of parliamentary elections in Bahrain, The Washington Post ran this report from there: “Mahmood, who lives in a house with his parents, four siblings and their children, said he became even more frustrated when he looked up Bahrain on Google Earth and saw vast tracts of empty land, while tens of thousands of mainly poor Shiites were squashed together in small, dense areas. ‘We are 17 people crowded in one small house, like many people in the southern district,’ he said. ‘And you see on Google how many palaces there are and how the al-Khalifas [the Sunni ruling family] have the rest of the country to themselves.’ Bahraini activists have encouraged people to take a look at the country on Google Earth, and they have set up a special user group whose members have access to more than 40 images of royal palaces.”

  • http://www.dawn.com/2011/03/21/1000-pakistanis-recruited-for-bahrain-forces.html

    March 20: More than 1,000 Pakistanis have been recruited to serve in
    the Bahrain National Guards, learnt on Sunday.

    The recruitment has been made through the military-run Bahria
    Foundation and Fauji Foundation, which train the selected personnel
    before sending them to Bahrain.

    Sources said that although the recruitment process had started much
    before the eruption of the current unrest in Bahrain, authorities have
    been continuing the process. The two organisations have been asked to
    complete the training process as early as possible.

    They said that interviews and tests of thousands of candidates had
    been conducted by a team comprising Bahraini officials and an American
    instructor and the recruits are likely to leave the country in a month
    or so.

    Bahria Foundation`s Managing Director Admiral Mehmood A. Khan said the
    recruitment had nothing to do with the ongoing unrest in Bahrain.

    “We have been asked to recruit 850 people and 150 to 200 others will
    be inducted through Fauji Foundation,” he said.

    “We have facilitated the recruitment with a view to providing
    employment to Pakistanis,” he added.

  • What biased commentary was that. Of course Bahrainis and Emaratis have been recruiting PAkistanis. But not necessarily to kill “shia” demonstrators. These are poor Pakistanis looking some employment so please dont call them mercenaries. In Bahrain, the protestors say that its not Shia vs Sunni but then in the same breath they talk about victimizing Shia’s. Pakistani policemen are kept on the front lines to face the heat while locals stay behind. A few years ago a couple of Pakistani policemen in Bahrain were burnt to death. Their killers are termed as “political prisoners” by the opposition…The matter is not as simple as this stupid news item.
