Balochistan activists to protest outside UN General Assembly, thank Indians for support

New Delhi: Taking their fight for freedom from the oppressive establishment in Islamabad, Balochistan activists have decided to knock on the doors of the United Nations.

Balochistan activist Dilshad Baloch said, “We will now protest on September 13 outside the UN General Assembly.”

“Every Indian around the world supporting us, it's great. We now look to intensify our protests,” he added.

Mr Baloch is a prominent freedom movement activists and was recently in New Delhi to seek more support for their cause.

Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for lending support to the oppressed Balochis, he had requested other world leaders to take notice of the genocide in Balochistan.

Following Prime Minister's speech on Independence Day, the United States had also expressed concern over the human rights situation in Balochistan and said it has been consistently asking all parties in Pakistan to work out their differences peaceably and through a "valid political process".

Union Minister Jitendra Singh had last week asserted that Balochistan is a very important security concern for India and said Pakistan should put an end to "operational atrocities" unleashed by Islamabad in the region.

"Balochistan is a very important security concern for India", Singh said.

Singh was replying to a question about India's reaction to the atrocities and operational terror by Pakistan on the people of Balochistan.

"You cannot allow your neighbourhood to be on fire because sooner or later it is going to impact you, you cannot build a heaven inside and leave a hell outside," the minister said.

Singh said that it is example of a boundary wall with another house and the other house being constantly in trouble and sooner or later you run a risk of being impacted by it.
