Baloch nationalist leader Naela Quadri Baloch, who arrived in India today, believes things are changing “rapidly” at the international level since Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the plight of the people of troubled Balochistan province of Pakistan. Her son Mazdak Dilshad Baloch is already camping in India. She was supposed to address an outreach organised by the RSS-backed India Policy Foundation earlier this month but could not do so for failing to secure visa on time.

“Things are changing rapidly at the international level. You have seen in the United Nations…other countries are coming forward to support the Balochistan issue,” Prof Baloch, who lives in self-exile in Canada, told reporters after arriving at the IGI airport.

Mazdak, who is also a prominent Baloch activist, said Prof Baloch will be in India for the next one week or so and address a number of seminars and meetings.

“She was not denied visa. It just got delayed so she could not address the October 1 event. Now, both of us will be attending events both in and outside Delhi for the next one week or so,” he said.

The Baloch cause for freedom has received a major diplomatic push since Modi brought up Pakistani atrocities on people of Balochistan and PoK in his Independence Day speech.

Another prominent exiled Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti, had approached the Indian Embassy in Geneva seeking asylum in India last month.

                    Because of the selfish act of the Terror Nation stan, its rulers and its Military the freedom for Provinces in stan is possible and India had shown restraint all along but was forced to support due to stan's failure to curb Terrorism and instead hided behind the Militants to attack on India and now they are Isolated by most of the International Leaders and the day is not far off for you what you had dreamed for the split in stan !!!

                      Today's situation is such that all muslims will be hurt everywhere they live. This is the situation they themselves have brought upon.lt;br/gt;Now all muslims must suffer and pay the price for staying quiet at terrorism acts etc.lt;br/gt;They even help terrorists.

                        Kashmir is the old project of . Military to voilate the human rights in Sindh, Balochistan, Gilgit-baltistan, POK Kashmir and Fata. stan has no sympathy with Kashmiris but is using the Kashmir Card to diveret the world opion from their atrocities to the people of Balochistan.

                                  Kashmiri Muslims are free to get out of Maharishi Kashyapas land belonging to Kasmiri Pandits since last 5-6 thosounds years and move over to western Sunni Punjab created for Muslims of Indian subcontinent. No one prevents you from doing it. Rather Indians will be willing to drive you safely at stan-POK border with one way ticket.

                                    The Balochis are our flesh and blood and we invite them to live as equals in India. We apologise for not being sensitive to their concerns during Parion and ever since then. Now is the time to correct past wrongs. Welcome, my Balochi brothers and sisters, parents and children. Welcome to India.

                                      Fake representation of loyalest baloch for achieving objectives of india. Reality is known by all that india is responsible for the blood shed of baloch peoples by igniting terrorism and butchery in balochistan which has already been disclosed infront of the w world in shape of Kalboshan who admitted that india has killed thousand of baloch people in bomb blasts and other terrorist activities.

                                        Ali u r talking about Muslims in India. Ask any and they will say they are one of the happiest lot among all Muslims in the world. That's y their nos have grown here whereas Hindus in stan have reduced to 2 percent from 37 percent. So don't preach us about minority treatment

                                          All the States must sacrifice for the National cause forgetting their unique language,race,natural resources like water,minerals,land,forest,river,sea etc that is patriotism but for BJPand Sangh Private and International ventures are the most important.
