CM Balochistan lashes out at Modi saying RAW is behind terrorism


QUETTA : Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri on Thursday slapped a befitting reply to enemies of the country, reiterating that Indian spy agency, RAW, is behind terrorism in Pakistan.
“You can’t defeat us, we are resolute to kill each and every terrorist,” Zehri said, while addressing a gathering in Quetta.Online reported.
In his speech, he gave a vigorous response to India Prime Minister Modi and separatist leader of the outlawed Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahamdagh Bugti. “You support Hindus just for peanuts, you are not a Muslim” he addressed Brahamdagh Bugti.
Zehri said “I’m stating it responsibly that RAW is involved in terrorism incidents in Pakistan.” “Modi’s friend is Pakistan’s traitor,” he chanted slogans.
Last week, Modi went aggressively in a diatribe against Pakistan, saying that “people of Balochistan, Gilgit and Azad Kashmir had thanked him in past few days, and that he was grateful to them.
“We condemn Narendra Modi’s statement on Balochistan. No one in Balochistan supported his statement. There is no comparison between the struggle for liberation in India-held Kashmir and the so-called Balochistan insurgency,” Zehri said.
The Indian premier’s speech on Aug 15, India’s Independence Day, sparked protests across Balochistan, with large numbers of tribesmen taking to the streets in protest in Dera Bugti, Khuzdar, Quetta, Chaman and other parts of the province.
“People of Balochistan, Gilgit and PoK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) have thanked me a lot in past few days, I am grateful to them,” Modi had said.
Angry protesters set ablaze the Indian flag and chanted slogans against the Indian prime minister.
“We didn’t ask the people to come out on the streets… They are on the streets themselves,” Zehri said of the protests against Modi.
“The Kashmiris are agitating for their right to self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions, whereas in Balochistan there is only a small group working on the behest of the enemy country,” Zehri said, referring to suspected Indian involvement in terror activities in the province.
“I swear on the blood of the dead, wherever these terrorists are, we will hunt them down.”
“The Indian government fully supports the ongoing insurgency in Balochistan,” Zehri alleged, adding “it is deeply involved in sponsoring elements like Brahamdagh Bugti, Haerbyar Marri, Zamran Marri and Allah Nazar,” he said, alleging that Brahamdagh Bugti was “getting funds from Indians, that’s why he supported Modi’s statement”.
Zehri’s speech comes days after a video showing exiled Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti appreciating ‘support’ given to the Baloch people by the Indian premier began circulating on social media. “Shame,” Zehri said, encouraging his audience to join in with chants of “shame”.
“100 per cent of Kashmiris are demanding their right to self-determination, whereas in Balochistan, not even 1pc of people support the insurgency,” he claimed.
“We arrested [Indian spy] Kulbhushan Jadhav and his entire network,” Zehri said, adding that the spy admitted during investigation that he had funded and trained lesser-privileged people and “turned them against Balochistan and Pakistan”.
The Balochistan chief minister had earlier pointed towards the involvement of Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in the Aug 8 blast in Quetta.
“The media asked how I could say that RAW is involved,” Zehri said, adding that the reports he receives as CM Balochistan show him RAW’s involvement.
