Encouraged and overwhelmed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s supportive words, various leaders of Baloch nationalist movement look for support from the US and European countries against the oppressive Pakistani regime.
Baloch leaders believe that Pakistan is conspiring to destroy the peace and stability in the Kashmir region while demanding Kashmir as their own, while at the same time, crushing the demand of people in Balochistan through force.
In a statement, Khalil Baloch, the chairman of the Baloch National Movement, said: “The world must understand that Pakistan’s use of religious terrorism as a policy tool will have far-reaching consequences; terrorism cannot be contained but needs to be countered effectively.”
“Baloch nation hopes that the United States and Europe will join Prime Minister Modi and hold Pakistan accountable for the crimes against humanity and the war crimes it has committed against the Baloch nation in 68 years of its occupation of Balochistan and during the five wars that the Baloch nation has fought with Pakistan to win its national freedom,” Baloch said.
Khalil Baloch’s statement comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi openly came out in support of “freedom” for Balochistan.
The prime minister said the people of those areas have thanked him for drawing attention to their troubles, a reference to his warning last week that if Pakistan continues instigating violence in Kashmir, India will be compelled to expose Islamabad’s many wrongdoings in regions fighting terror and atrocities by its security forces.
Meanwhile, Brahumdagh Bugti, the president of the Baloch Republican Party, thanked PM Modi and hoped that the Indian government, Indian media and the whole Indian nation would not only raise their voices for the Baloch nation but also strive to help practically the Baloch independence movement.
