New Delhi: If India keeps bringing up Balochistan in the United Nations to counter Pakistan’s accusation of human rights violation in Jammu and Kashmir, the lid on Maoist, Northeast India unrest will be blown open, said the Pakistan envoy in United States.
Pakistan has repeatedly urged the United States to intervene in the Kashmir issue only to be countered with the accusation that it was conducting gross human rights violations in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir region. The two Pakistani envoys were evidently flustered when they were countered with these accusations.
Pak envoy Syed on Thursday said that if Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi kept referring to Balochistan, Pakistan would respond by raising the issue of “Khalistan, Nagaland, Tripura, Assam, Sikkim or the Maoist insurgency”.
“We do not want to do that because that is interference in the internal affairs of a neighboring country . You are changing the rules of the game. It becomes tit for tat,” Syed said.
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has raised the issue of Kashmir at the United Nations but has maintained silence regarding the protests against Pakistan in Balochistan.
