NEW DELHI: Describing as "false" the distinction made between the Pakistani state and its people, Baloch activist Mazdak Dilshad Baloch has questioned the Pakistan people’s "silence" on the "acts of oppression" at Balochistan. "But, they voiced their opposition against the terror attack in Paris," he said.
Mazdak said Prime Minister Narendra Modi understands the "pain" of the people of Balochistan the leadership of which has sought India's help for the "first time in 70 years". Modi's Independence Day speech had played "a major role in spreading awareness" about the "atrocities" of the Pakistani state on Balochistan, Mazdak added. Baloch leader Brahumdagh Bugti has recently sought asylum in India.
