Bangladesh has echoed India’s stand over Balochistan. Visiting Bangladesh Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu said in New Delhi that Pakistan has very bad track record vis-a-vis other religious minorities.
Mr Inu said, Pakistan abused human rights in erstwhile East Pakistan and is of harbouring terrorists. Disturbing pictures of Pakistan’s brutality in Balochistan has emerged recently which shows how innocent citizens are being eliminated by the Pak army.
Balochistan’s leaders allege that in the last few decades, Pakistan Army has killed nearly 30,000 Baloch people and over 24,000 have simply disappeared including some prominent regional leaders. It is believed that these people were picked up by Pak Intelligence agency ISI, tortured for information and then killed.
Pakistan has been carrying out this cycle of repression against Baloch people as they have been struggling for freedom from Pakistan’s illegal control. and their struggle to free themselves of Pakistan’s clutches got a sudden boost when Prime Minister Narendra Modi took up their cause by thanking them during his Independence Day address from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
