London: The Baloch National Movement ongoing in UK and its associated organizations have sought Indian government’s help against Pakistan’s atrocities reigning upon Baloch people. The activists want India to assist Balochistan’s freedom movement.
At a memorial event to mark Balochistan’s Martyr’s Day in London on Wednesday, members of the Baloch National Movement as well as groups such as the World Sindhi Congress and Baloch Students Organisation Azad branded the UK government “hypocritical” for its silence on the human rights violations in Balochistan.
“Over 20,000 Baloch people have been abducted by Pakistani security forces and many killed in the last two decades. Our message to the Indian government is that they have to raise their voice against the atrocities by the Pakistani security forces,” said Hammal Haider, foreign affairs spokesperson of the Baloch National Movement.
“India played an important role in liberating Bangladesh and it must now come forward and support our movement to gain independence from the rogue state of Pakistan, which is breeding Islamist militants and destabilizing the entire region,” added Hammal Haider.
