Washington, DC— Balochistan National Congress
(BNC), a Washington, D.C based Baloch body, Strongly condemns the Pakistan’s foreign minister, Mr. Mahmood Qureshi, for his hypocritical remarks at the UN General Assembly Session.
Mr. Quraishi was speaking at the UNGA’s 73rd Session in New York, calling the Indian atrocities against the Kashmiri people unjust and unacceptable but at the same time he fell short to mention the Pakistan’s illegal and unjust occupation of Balochistan and the Pakistan’s army’s atrocities against the innocent and defenseless Baloch people in the occupied Balochistan.
“On one side Mr. Qureshi is shedding crocodile tears for the Kashmiri people but at the same time he has closed his eyes over the Pokistan’s illegal, immoral and unjust occupation of Balochistan and Pakistan’s army’s atrocities against the innocent and defenseless Baloch citizens in the occupied Balochistan”.
“What a hypocrite, two faced and double standard person he is”, said Dr. Baloch, the President of BNC.
“Under what international laws Pakistan continues to occupy Balochistan and exploits its natural resources against the will and mandate of Baloch people”, he asked Mr. Qureshi.
He said, “It is time for Pakistan to end the illegal, immoral and unjust occupation of Balochistan and leave Balochistan peacefully without any further bloodshed and violence”.
”Pakistan is in violation of international laws for illegally occupying Balochistan against the will and mandate of Baloch people and Pakistan has no right to stay in Balochistan but needs to peacefully withdraw its forces from the occupied Balochistan and Balochistan’s sovereign status as an independent and fee country must be restored according to the international laws”, said Dr. Baloch.
He asked the world community and world leaders to support the the Just struggle of Baloch people in their fight for freedom and justice in the occupied Balochistan against the illegal occupation of their motherland and exploitation of their natural resources by Pakistan, Iran and China.
He asked the Baloch militants to shun the path of militancy and violence and use only peaceful means of struggle to secure Balochistan for the Baloch people.
He said, “BNC only believe in peaceful means of struggle and is against the violence, terrorism and extremism in its all forms and shapes”.
