Amidst the growing war of words between Indian and Pakistan over Kashmir, people of Balochistan on Thursday said they need India’s support to free their land from the domination of Pakistan and its military establishment.
They also expressed their solidarity with Indians on the occasion of the country’s 73rd Independence Day. Balochistan is a province belongs to Pakistan.
“I want to wish my Indian brothers and sisters a very happy Independence Day. The success they have made in the last 70 years makes Indians proud. Today, Indians are proud all around the world. We Balochs are thankful for their solidarity and help. We want them to raise their voice for a free Balochistan. We need their support. Thank you and Jai Hind,” news agency ANI quoted Baloch activist, Atta Baloch, as saying.
