bahrain_national_guardSIRIKOT (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa): Bahrain National Guard (BNG) is recruiting ex-soldiers from the Mashwani Syed tribe that populates Sirikot, one of the 44 union councils of Haripur District.

Of the some 90,000 residents of Sirikot a large majority belongs to the Mashwani and its sub-tribes that include Manikhel, Sahib Khail, Dura Khail, Rahatkhel and Senkhael. BNG is recruiting anti-riot instructors and army drill instructors (non commissioned officers, PMA).
The Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) has expressed its “deep concern and dismay regarding the news received from Balochistan province regarding the presence of a Bahraini security delegation in the Pakistani town of Makran.

The security delegation is said to be working to recruit men from this city, who belong to the Baluch tribes in Pakistan, to work as mercenaries in the Bahraini security services.”

On March 12, young Pakistani men lined up ahead of the Pearl Continental Hotel in Lahore waiting to be interviewed by a visiting delegation of Bahrain National Guards. BNG was in Lahore to recruit mess waiters, cooks and ex-military personnel including anti-riot experts and military police.

According to BCHR, “The Bahrain Government’s use of foreign mercenaries to oppress Bahraini people with legitimate demands and grievances leads to a growing hostility towards foreigners.”

On March 15, Bahraini protesters attacked Pakistani residences in the Sheikh Abdullah Road and Markaz Naeem areas and, according to some reports, up to 4 Pakistanis, of which 2 were policemen, have been killed and several injured. Our Foreign Office has so confirmed that Abdul Malik, a 30-year old Pakistani man was brutally murdered by protestors in Manama.

In 2010, around 63,000 Pakistanis living in Bahrain sent back $101 million. For the period July-February 2009-2010, foreign remittances landing on Pakistani shores sent in by Pakistanis working abroad amounted to a wholesome $5.7 billion. But the current situation in Bahrain demands a serious review of our overseas recruitment policies.

Bahraini protestors have already exhibited intense hatred towards Pakistanis serving in the Bahraini police. The dead bodies of the two policemen of Pakistani descent, who were publicly lynched in Pearl Square, were later kicked around and mutilated by angry demonstrators.
