Nabi Baksh considers Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to be a mere puppet in the hands of the army and the country lacks democratic government.
Nabi Baksh said,”We don’t expect anything from Nawaz Sharif, he is a mere puppet, and the army is ruling the country. They do not have a democratic government in Pakistan,”
Nabi, reacted to the reports on Sharif’s telephonic conversation with Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif said, “It was like General Raheel was telling Sharif that listen you have to read this paper there. So, what can we expect from him?”

On Tuesday, Baloch Republican Party chief Brahamdagh Bugti spoke on the current scenario saying, there is a war like situation in Balochistan, and human rights violations are rampant due to heavy presence of military forces in the region.
“In Balochistan, it is a war like situation. There is a huge presence of military and Frontier Corps (FC) in areas like Quetta. And they pick up people for slightest of political activity,” Bugti told ANI.

He further added that the people of Balochistan have tried long enough to be a part of Pakistan but they have always been exploited.
“When we were forcibly merged with Pakistan we tried to stay with it and be given equal rights but whenever we talked about our rights, military operations were conducted and our people were killed. This is the fifth military operation and is being done since ten years. Our language is different, culture is different, code of life is different so there is no point that we stay with them forcibly,” Bugti said.

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.”
