Baloch rebuff Modi’s outburst

PEOPLE of Balochistan demonstrated their patriotic face to the world in a most befitting manner on Thursday by coming out in large numbers on roads and streets in every nook and corner of the Province against atrocious remarks of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who tried to cast doubts on patriotic credentials of the proud Baloch people. Civil society activists and different political organizations were instrumental in staging rallies and protest demonstrations in Quetta, Dera Bugti, Lasbela, Naushki, Chaghai, Khuzdar, Naseerabad, Jaffarabad, Kohlu, Dera Allahyar, Dadhar, Sibi, Bolan and other towns of the Province.
The protestors thoroughly condemned the Indian Prime Minister for his Independence Day diatribe against Pakistan, shouted slogans against him and put his effigies on fire. Reacting strongly to Modi’s statement, Balochistan Chief Minister Sardar Sanaullah Zehri represented feelings of the people of the Province by declaring that Baloch are united in condemning the Indian premier and have conveyed a clear message to the world that they would foil designs of the enemy. No doubt, India, since long, has been trying to stir up trouble in the Province by training, funding and arming some misguided elements who played in the hands of the enemy for the sake of a few bucks but the overwhelming majority of people of Balochistan is as patriotic as Punjabis, Sindhis or Pushtoons. This was also evident from severe mass condemnation of such elements, especially Brahmdagh Bugti for his negative politics and becoming a tool in the hands of India in an effort to destabilize Pakistan. Similar sentiments have also been expressed by people of Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir, who have strongly condemned Modi and declared that they are patriotic Pakistanis and are well off in Pakistan. In fact, by making mischievous references to Balochistan, India is trying to divert attention from the black deeds of its forces in Occupied Kashmir but such machinations would not work.
