Video of BLA Terrorist burning Jinnah Residency

The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) video surfaced of attack on the Quaid residency in Ziarat, on 15 June 2013.

The Ziarat residency which later recognized as Quaid’s Residency, was constructed in 1892 with the idea of it becoming a sanatorium due to the presence of a Juniper forest in the area in which it was constructed. Later on, it was converted into a summer residence of the agent to the governor general. But, it being the building where Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah spent his last days is what it makes it truly historical.

Jinnah stayed in this place as he tried to recover from a lung disease in 1948, a year after his successful campaign to separate Pakistan from India. He died in Karachi soon after. The building was a national heritage site.

BLA has been heavily involved in destabilizing the political system of Balochistan and also alleged by Pakistani authorities that it is been funded by Govt. of India.
