Baloch activists welcome PM Modi's statement on PoK and Balochistan

New Delhi: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi termed Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) as part of Jammu and Kashmir, leaders from the POK supported PM Narendra Modi's statement.

In a statement given to ANI, Balochistan activist Hammal Haider Baloch on Saturday said, “We welcome PM Modi’s statement to support freedom movement of Balochistan. This is the first time ever that an Indian PM has expressed his wish to support Baloch people, very crucial decision.”

“Baloch people share common interest with India, we are secular and believe in democratic principles. Pak has never complied with international rules,they’re killing Baloch people,” added Baloch.

Another activist, Naila Baloch, said, “We people of Balochistan are suffering, we hope that you (PM Modi) raise this issue in UN session in September.”
