Embarrassment for Pakistan! Baloch leader raises 'Jai Hind' slogan, thanks PM Narendra Modi for highlighting Balochistan issue
Pakistan would certainly be worried with Baloch Republican Party (BRP) leader Ashraf Sherjan on Monday thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for highlighting the Balochistan issue internationally.
New Delhi: Pakistan would certainly be worried with Baloch Republican Party (BRP) leader Ashraf Sherjan on Monday thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for highlighting the Balochistan issue internationally.
The BRP leader hoped that India and Balochistan will soon celebrate Independence Day together.
Sherjan also raised 'Jai Hind' slogan, giving clear indications that the restive region wants to get free from the clutches of Pakistan.
The Baloch leader's statements come after PM Modi in his Independence Day speech came out openly in support of "freedom" for Balochistan and "Pakistan occupied Kashmir".
Notably, the PoK region recently has been witnessing huge protests. Locals in the region have been agitating on the streets to protest against the rigged July 21 election and Pakistan occupation in the region.
The protesting people have slammed the Pakistani establishment and shouted azadi slogans.
The protesters raised their voices against Paksitan-sponsored terrorism, goondaism. The oppressed people were also seen raised slogans against Pakistani media.
Last year reports had emerged that residents of PoK were openly advocating to be a part of India. They were said to be impressed with PM Narendra Modi's style of governance.
BRP founding chief Brahumdagh Bugti on Sunday said if the international community could interfere in Libya and Syria, why not in Balochistan, where people were leaving their own nation out of helplessness.
Grandson of influential Baloch politician the late Akbar Khan Bugti, Brahamdagh told ANI: "They (Pakistan) call us terrorists. They say we are taking support from India. We are appealing to the international community to help us. They should come and see the situation and monitor everything. If you can interfere in Libya and Syria, why cannot in Balochistan? One cannot imagine all that happens in Pakistan, people are leaving their own nation out of helplessness."
"Baloch are resisting because they are being targeted by the Pakistan army. Villages in Balochistan are being bombarded and villagers tortured. Pakistan calls us terrorists, who are getting support from India or the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO)," said Bugti, adding that he urges India to help in the same way as it did for creation of Bangladesh.
