Razak Khan said that he is waiting for the festival of Eid-ul-Adha to get over. As soon as it will over he will lead a deputation of local Balochs to areas of western UP that have ethnic Balochs living there, including Bagpat in Haryana among other cities

“Although some may consider Modi’s mention of Balochistan as interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs but Modi was following a policy of “reciprocity” with Pakistan by mentioning Balochistan in reply of Pakistan’s mention of Kashmir,” said social activist Vishal Sharma.

He said that opposition parties who are criticising Modi for mentioning Balochistan and blaming him for sparking in that Pakistan-occupied territory should also have the guts to criticise the separatist leaders living in India who openly voice pro-Pakistan statements, mentioned India Today report.

Social activist Vishal Sharma also said that there were two Billochpuras in Agra, one near the Taj Mahal and one closer to Agra Mental Asylum.

He said that although it was quite heartwarming to see scenes from Balochistan where Baloch leaders were praising India and shouting “Bharat mata ki jai”, but if the local Baloch leaders are willing to support the separatist movement in Balochistan, they should be aware of the fact that India officially frowns upon groups causing unrest in other countries, which includes Pakistan and its occupied territories.

Sharma said that “Modi has given a completely new turn to the Baloch Freedom Movement and to the issue of Kashmir also.”
