Baloch government-in-exile will be a reality soon. Balochistan pro-freedom activists have already drawn up broad contours for its establishment in India. Pro-freedom activists have sought support of countries, including Afghanistan, for setting up the Baloch government-in-exile. Recently, pro-freedom activist Naela Qadri Baloch had arrived in New Delhi to give a definite shape to the plan.
According to sources, negotiations are in advanced stages. Several Baloch leaders from Pakistan and other countries have visited India from the time Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the issue of human rights violations by Pakistani Army in Balochistan during his Independence Day address of August 15.
Naela Baloch, who waited for almost three months to get an Indian visa, flew into New Delhi from Kabul where she lives. "I am very happy to be here. I look forward to my stay in Delhi for a week and then travel to other cities," Naela Baloch told a news agency. "I have multiple engagements in Delhi. I am looking forward to meet a number of political leaders here to garner support to form a Baloch government-in-exile," she added.
In an interview to Bharat Niti, pro-freedom activist Mazdak Dilshad Baloch said, “Baloch leaders have agreed to form a Baloch government-in-exile wherever it is possible, terming it as need of hour. Besides, they also called upon Afghanistan to join India to help Balochistan become independent. Much depends upon who supports our government-in-exile. Because support will also mean standing up to Pakistan, the terror capital of the world. Pakistan plays on fears of the world. Bluff is central to their policy.”
Balochistan has acquired strategic importance to India’s security and foreign policy. Balochistan, which straddles three countries (Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan) and borders the Arabian Sea, is a vast and sparsely populated province (6,511,000 people occupying 43 percent of Pakistan’s territory). It’s a repository of huge mineral and oil wealth on which Chinese have a eye.
