Prof. Rakesh Sinha

 

Addressing a Seminar on Balcoh Nationality: Internal Colonisation of Balochistan by Pakistan. Prof. Rakesh Sinha, Hon Director, India Policy Foundation, presented the idea of Seminar and started the seminar with his statement that India has long tradition of standing for the oppressed masses. Balochistan is illegally occupied by Pakistani Regime unlike other Indian princely states,  Balochistan was an independent sovereign Nation with its own parliament. This has always been a  part of unbroken civilisational, cultural and intellectual legacies of India. He further attacked Human Right Organizations, like Amnesty International for their hypocritical silence on Baloch issue. He also mentioned about West in general and USA in particular for escaping the moral responsibility on Balochistan and deliberately maintaining the silence. He further said that India support has changed the dynamics and unmasked all those who considers themselves as champions of Human Rights. Prof Sinha also proposed the acceptance political asylum of Brahmdagh Bugti.

Dr. G.D. Bakshi

 

Maj. Gen. GD Bakshi Said: Since, Independence Due to defensive policy and porous borders of India took 1000’s of life. The shift to offensive defense policy has neutralized the pressure of borders. After 30 years we have a leader, Modi, who has deterministic approach towards border and international matters and can take decisions. He warns India about the malicious intent of China behind CPEC. The curve of CPEC lies close to Punjab and Rajasthan, had it been across Sindhu River, it would be cheaper. This clearly reveals the strategy of China to pressurize India in future by different fronts. Help to Baloch cause is help to ourselves as CPEC and the construction of Gwadar port can hurt our future generations.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Tarek Fatah

 

Mr. Tarek Fatah, noted thinker and writer said that Pakistan is a state of mind and not a country. Pakistan has mal-intention for everyone, at its borders or other cultures, ethnicity and religion inside Pakistan. Tarek Fatah narrated the historical background of Muslim’s religious and political aspirations in South Asia region. Time of South Asia has been changed, it will shape itself to move in decisive manner, now, he added. He addressed the need to honor National Anthem and said that India needs to take care of Sindh and whole of Punjab to complete the anthem statement. He said that Baloch pride is incomplete without Nawabs and Sardars of that region. India has to take lead leadership role for the stability of the region. Pakistan has to be controlled for peace of the region.
