A Baloch National Movement (BNM) leader has presented case of Balochistan to a crowd that included US Congressmen.
According to details received by The Balochistan Post (TBP), Nabi Baksh Baloch, a member of BNM Foreign Committee, was speaking during an event in US organised by Free Karachi, a group run by former MQM leader Nadeem Nusrat.
The event was attended by US Congressmen Scott Perry and Tom Garrett, who also spoke at the event.
Mr. Baloch told the US Congressmen that it is incomprehensible that a country like USA which stands for freedom and human dignity continues supporting Pakistan militarily and economically.
In his speech Mr. Baloch said: ‘Since 2001, thousands of political activists have been enforced disappeared in Balochistan. Most of the time their dead bodies are being thrown in the wilderness.’
Commenting on China funded multi-billion dollar project China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Mr. Baloch said: ‘With the so called inception of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), these atrocities have grown worse. The CPEC is part of Chinese plans to take over the world through the One Belt and One Road Initiative, all one port at a time. The Pakistani Government has already handed over the strategically important Gwadar port in Balochistan to China. Reports also suggest that China would be allowed to establish a naval base on the Baloch coast. It is clear that China does not have economical but also strategic military ambitions in the region, which is to increase its military presence in the Indo pacific region. Eventually dominating and projecting power and influence around the globe from the Horn of Africa into the Middle East and South Asia.’
BNM Leader urged the USA and EU to immediately stop funding and supporting Pakistan.
He requested that Pakistan should be declared a state sponsor of terror and sanctions be put against it.
Representatives of different other persecuted communities including Mohajir, Hazara, Pashtun, Gilgit Baltistan, Christian and Hindus were also present at the event
