General-Secretary of the Baloch National Movement Dr. Murad Jamali said in a media statement that the arrest of Baloch refugees in Afghanistan at the hands of Taliban forces is “alarming.” He said that since the Taliban have gained power, incidents of violence against Baloch refugees has increased. He said that such attacks are a violation of Pashtun traditions, and it is our collective responsibility to hold these values intact.
The BNM spokesperson blamed Pakistan for the attacks against Baloch refugees in Afghanistan. He said that Pakistan has become a “gangster” state– it has the blood of not only the Baloch but also the Bangali, Pashtun and Afghan nations on its hands. No country in the world has killed so many of its citizens in such a short time, he said.
He said that the world should not take Pakistan’s word at the face value – the international community must consider Pakistan’s past as well as its present before believing in anything Islamabad says. The neighbouring countries should help the Baloch nation in their struggle against Pakistan so that this system of “fraud and deception” can be overthrown, he said.
