Dr Allah Nazar Baloch, the pro-independence leader of Balochistan criticized United Nations General Assembly president Volkan Bozkir for relying only on the Pakistani narrative on Balochistan. Dr Allah Nazar said that the president of UNGA should not fall for the Pakistani propaganda and risk being judgmental on Balochistan. He castigated Volkan Bozkir for calling Baloch as terrorists.
The revered Baloch leader posted a series of tweets in reply to a tweet by Volkan Bozkir, the president of UNGA in which he had condemned the attacks in Bolan by Baloch Liberation Army (BLA). Dr Allah Nazar replied to Volkan Bozkir tweet and termed his views as “one-sided opinion”.
Volkan Bozkir had tweeted his condemnation after Pakistani forces were targeted twice in Jhalawan and Thankk area of Bolan, in which at least 13 Pakistani personnel including JCOs of the Pakistani military were killed and injured. BLA had claimed responsibility for both attacks and said 13 personnel were killed and several others were injured in these attacks. Outposts of Pakistani military were also captured by BLA in the first attack.
“President of the UN General Assembly’s condemnation of attack on Pakistani forces and terming Baloch as terrorists is his one-sided opinion,” said Dr Allah Nazar Baloch.
Dr Allah Nazar added that Pakistan is “committing genocide and war crimes in Balochistan” and the president of UNGA must not be judgmental by relying only on the Pakistani narrative. “Baloch are fighting for their freedom in accordance with the UN Charter which allows every nation to have a state,” he said.
The Baloch leader demanded that the United Nations must intervene as they did in East Timor and Bangladesh, and said that “…our (Balochistan’s) sovereign state was annexed by Pakistan by force.” “It is UNGA President’s responsibility to help Baloch in their freedom rather condemning our movement by favouring Pakistan which is a declared terrorist state,” Dr Nazar explained.
