Nawaz Sharif, Pak Army Chief, ISI DG are war criminals, arrest them: Balochistan's representative at UNHRC
Balochistan's representative at UNHRC has called for the arrest of Nawaz Sharif, Army Chief Raheel Sharif, ISI DG and others, terming them as war criminals.
Islamabad: Balochistan's representative at UNHRC has accused Pakistan of committing war crimes against Baloch people and urged the international community to penalise Islamabad for its alleged human rights violations in the Baloch and Sindh regions.
The Pakistani establishment is committing war crimes in Balochistan and Sindh. We appeal to Interpol to issue Red notices for Raheel Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, DG ISI and heads of FC and Rangers, Mehran Mari, Balochistan's representative at UNHRC was quoted as saying by ANI.
Mari said that it's not the first time that Pakistan has resorted to misinforming international community, the European Union and Interpol.
PM Nawaz Sharif, Army Chief Raheel Sharif, ISI DG and others are war criminals and they must be arrested whenever they leave Pakistan, Mari said.

The remarks from Mari comes at a time when Pakistan has been cracking down on Baloch activists since they lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for action against Pakistan for its atrocities against the Baloch people in Pakistan.
Several top Baloch leaders have accused that Pakistan of using chemical weapon against the Baloch people to suppress their voices.
Sher Mohammad Bugti, a spokesman of the Baloch Republican Party (BRP), has warned Islamabad about any action it is planning against other prominent Baloch activists who protest Pakistan's atrocities in Balochistan.
"Before issuing a red corner notice against Brahamdagh Bugti, Pakistan should think what its global image is," Sher Mohammad Bugti said, referring to Brahamdagh, the founder of the BRP.
Pakistani authorities have decided to speed up the process to bring back Baloch separatist leader and Nawaz Akbar Khan Bugti's grandson Brahamdagh Bugti, who is currently living in self-exile in Switzerland, PTI reported.
Two weeks ago, in what is being seen a big strategic shift, PM Modi began to call out Pakistan for its so-called hypocrisy in commenting about Kashmir even as it continues to oppress people within its borders.
And now, Baloch activists in Pakistan and those forced into exile abroad are rallying around Modi's stirring speeches against Pakistan's atrocities in the Balochistan province and in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK).
Last week, even as Pakistan has begun to internationalize its Kashmir campaign, the country was hugely embarrassed after dozens of exiled Baloch activists in Germany came out on Saturday to chant anti-Pakistan protests and to laud Modi for his stand.
Many of the Baloch activists were flying the Indian flag and shouting pro-Modi slogans at a rally they held in the town of Leipzig, media reports said. This protest came even as Nawaz Sharif announced that he has appointed a 22 MP 'K' squad to tour the world with a Kashmir agenda.
