Naila Baloch told ANI that the people of Balochistan are suffering and they hope Prime Minister Narendra Modi will raise this issue in UN session in September. “We people of Balochistan, Pakistan and PoK thank you (PM Modi) for your support,” she said.
Naila Baloch reacted to PM Modi’s strong message to Pakistan at an all-party meeting convened on Friday indicting it for fomenting terror in the Valley and reminding it of its “atrocities” in Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
“Pakistan forgets that it rains bombs from fighter planes on citizens of its country,” the Prime Minister said in his concluding remarks at an all-party meeting to discuss the flare-up in Kashmir in the wake of the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen’s Burhan Wani.
He said, “Time has now come that Pakistan will have to answer to the world about the atrocities being committed on people in Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.”
Another Balochistan Activist Hammal Haider Baloch said, “We welcome PM Modi’s statement to support freedom movement of Balochistan”.
He further said, “This is the first time ever that an Indian PM has expressed his wish to support Baloch people, and this is a very crucial decision taken by Indian government.
Hammal Baloch said that Baloch people share common interest with India, we are secular and believe in democratic principles, adding that Pakistan has never complied with international rules,they’re killing Baloch people. It is time for the world to come forward and support us, said Hammal.
