The Indian Foreign Office’s statement on human rights violations in Balochistan is welcome: BNM
Welcoming the Indian Foreign Office’s statement against the worst human rights violations and Pakistani atrocities in Balochistan, the central spokesperson of the Baloch National Movement said that it could be considered a good start. We hope that India would play its role in the ongoing human tragedy in Balochistan.
The spokesperson said that India is an important state of the region and the world and a neighbor of Balochistan. But India has always been unheard and ignored the genocide, enforced disappearances, mutilated corpses, mass graves, military operations, massacres of women and children, arson, looting of property and war crimes of the Pakistani army and state in Balochistan. The main reason for this apathy is probably India’s long-standing enmity with Pakistan so that India is not accused of igniting the issue of Balochistan because of its traditional enmity.
The central spokesperson of Baloch National Movement added, “When we speak of India or appeal to India to raise its voice, the main and important reason is the historical context of Balochistan and reminds India its duty as a neighboring country which has nothing to do with the India-Pakistan ongoing enmity.”
At the end of his statement, the Central Spokesperson said that we hope that India would play its due role in highlighting the issue of Balochistan and ongoing human tragedy with the major countries and at every international forums.
