Baloch's Are Crying #NukeAftermathinBalochistan

In May 1998, India conducted a series of nuclear tests in Rajasthan’s Pokhran (called Pokhran-II tests). In response, Pakistan on May 28, 1998 conducted five simultaneous underground nuclear tests at Ras Koh Hills in Chagai district of Balochistan province. But Today, Pakistan’s Baloch are crying for help from the aftermath of the nuke tests.

Pakistan might have achieved the Nuclear capability within 7 years of India carrying out its first Nuke, but its people, its citizens are burning in the nuke aftermath in Baloschistan.

On May 28 each year, Pakistan proudly celebrates “Youm-e-Takbir,” which translates as the “Day of Greatness,” to commemorate the country’s first successful detonation of nuclear devices. But the locals in Balochistan’s Chagai district, and citizens all across Balochistan, see May 28 as a “black day.” On May 28th, 1998 in the underground of Ras Koh hills in Chagai district of Balochistan province conducted 5 nuke bomb tests simultaneously. It has been 28 years to Pakistan’s military excellence, but at what expense?
