Baloch, Indians urge Pak to stop exporting terror
Several Baloch and Indian activists held large-scale demonstrations outside the UN headquarters here, while Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif addressed the UN General Assembly as they were joined by other groups demanding that it stop “exporting” terror into India.
The protestors converged across the street from the world body’s headquarters to condemn atrocities and human rights violations by Pakistan just as Sharif was addressing the General Debate of the General Assembly.
The crowd shouted slogans such as – ‘Free Balochistan’, ‘Down Down Pakistan’ and ‘Save World from Pakistan Terror’ – as they waved banners and placards that read ‘US Government stop giving funds to Pakistan’, ‘Kashmiri Hindus are Humans, Wake up to their sufferings’, ‘Remove Pakistan from the UN’, ‘Stop Atrocities in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir’ and ‘Killing Fields of Pakistan- Sindh and Balochistan’.
“Pakistan is a terror state and does not want the people of Balochistan to live in peace,” said Ahmar Musti Khan, founder of the American Friends of Balochistan.
He added that Pakistan and its leaders had been committing crimes against the residents of Kashmir, demanding that the country stop “exporting terror and let its neighbours live in peace”.
He said the Pakistani leadership should respect the right to self determination of the Baloch people.
Khan said the Baloch people are “indebted” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi “for speaking out for Balochistan’s rights and the right of the Baloch people to be the masters of our own destiny”.
