New Delhi, August 16, 2016: After Prime Minister Modi gave speech on India’s 70th Independence Day on August 15, and mentioned about the atrocities faced by the people of Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (Pok); leaders of the Baloch Nationalist Movement felt encouraged and overwhelmed by his speech and is likely to look for support from India, the US and the European nations against the oppressive Pakistani regime.

The Baloch nationalist leaders are of the opinion that Pakistan wishes to destruct the peace and stability of the region as they are being hypocritical when they demand Kashmir as their own, while at the same time, crushing the same demand of the people in Balochistan by force.

According to PTI, Khalil Baloch, chairman of the Baloch National Movement said, “The world must understand that Pakistan’s use of religious terrorism as a policy tool will have far-reaching consequences; terrorism cannot be contained but needs to be countered effectively. Baloch nation hopes that the United States and Europe will join Prime Minister Modi and hold Pakistan accountable for the crimes against humanity and the war crimes it has committed against the Baloch nation in 68 years of its occupation of Balochistan and during the five wars that the Baloch nation has fought with Pakistan to win its national freedom.”

Calling the statement by the Indian Prime Minister on Balochistan, a positive development, he said that the “policy of indifference towards Pakistan’s war crimes in occupied Balochistan that include both ethnic cleansing and genocide, adapted by the international community is worrying.”

Also, Brahumdagh Bugti, president of the Baloch Republican Party has thanked Modi for his statement on Balochistan and hopes that the entire Indian nation would raise its voice for the Baloch nation and help them in the Baloch independence movement. Bugti is the grandson of Nawab Akbar Bugti, a Baloch nationalist leader who was killed in an encounter with the Pakistani army.

He also told a leading news portal that he would also like Indian cinema to make a movie on the Baloch struggle and that he would like Amitabh Bachchan to play the character of his grandfather.

“In this context, raising the voice of the Baloch people should not be a temporary reaction or short term strategy by the Indian government, but should be a sincere intention of the Indian people to support their oppressed Baloch brothers and sisters and should be very serious part of the foreign policy of the Indian government,” added Bugti.

He said that the actions of Pakistan on the beautiful land of Kashmir and its involvement in the terrorist attacks in Mumbai and Pathankot have been clearly exposed in front of the world.

Bugti has high hopes from India and feels that the nation will do the necessary when Balochistan is in need, said the PTI report. He further added, “the Baloch mission and all the oppressed people of the world, still remember the decision of the Indian government when India intervened and came to the rescue of Bengali people from Pakistani brutalities in 1970s.”
