Tit for tat: Indian PM backs ‘freedom’ in Balochistan, Pak-occupied Kasmir

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today came out in open support of “freedom” for Balochistan and Pakistan-occupied Kasmir in his speech to mark the 70 Independence Day today.

“In the last few days the way the people of Balochistan, Gilgit, from Pak occupied Kashmir have thanked me, it is the honour of 1.25 billion people of India. I thank those people from Balochistan, Gilgit and Pak occupied Kashmir,” he said.

The move is being described as a blunt reply to Islamabad which dedicated its I-Day celebrations to “Kashmir’s freedom”.

In his speech, the PM also raised the issue of human rights violations in Pakistan.

“I tell those who believe in human values, to weigh in the scale of humanity, when innocent children were massacred in a school in Peshawar. In India, every school was weeping, there were tears in the eyes of every parliamentarian. That was a reflection of our human value, but look at the other side which glorifies terrorists,” he said.

He asked further, “What kind of life is this inspired by terrorism?”
