Pakistani senior journalist Mona Alam said that there have been human rights violation under dictatorial regimes in the Pakistan province of Balochistan.

However, Mona Alam in an exclusive interview to India Today said that "Pakistan in its constitution gives full safety to minorities".

"It will be totally wrong to say that our government has turned a blind eye to the human rights of minorities in Pakistan. Around 50 people have been booked for in different human rights violations cases. Pakistan in its constitution gives full safety to minorities.

"Balochistan situation is a little more complex. There indeed have been some human rights violation. I agree that there have been some serious human rights violations in Balochistan during some dictatorial regimes," Mona Alam said.

In Balochistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan, Right activists have sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's help in raising Pakistan's human rights violations at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Several activists exposed Pakistan Army's atrocities seeking India's counsel in raising their voices globally. Balochistan activists protested against Pakistan Army's atrocities. "Murdabad, murdabad, Pakistan murdabad," protestors in Geneva, Swtizerland chanted the slogan in front of UN.

In the province of Balochistan, the clamour against the Pakistan atrocities is rising as people are up in arms.

Head of Human Rights Council of Balochistan in Geneva, Switzerland said, "International human rights bodies and the United Nations should visit Balochistan and investigate the situation. They should stop Pakistan armed forces from committing such war crimes against humanity."

Baloch activist Qambar Malik said, "The Islamic radicalisation in Balochistan is being used by the Pakistani authorities."

Baloch leader Mehran Marri, calling the Pakistan Army "coward" said, "This army has to be held accountable. Be it [Qamar Javed] Bajwa or [Pervez] Musharraf or be it other dictators."

A ‘European Silk Road’

In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
