Baloch leader Akhtar Mengal returns to Pakistan

- March 25, 2013 - Updated 1311 PKT - From Web Edition

KARACHI: Akhtar Mengal, chief of Balochistan National Party, who arrived in Karachi from Dubai on Monday, demanded right of self-determination for the people of Balochistan.


“If right of self-determination could be demanded for Kashmir, why not for Balochistan,” he said while talking to media at Karachi airport.


He said that unfortunately there is no improvement in the Balochistan situation. “Balochistan still continues to bleed.” Mengal said that he has convened a meeting of his party on Tuesday to discuss future course of action.


To a question, Mengal denied that he has returned from abroad on the request of Balochistan’s Caretaker Chief Minister.


Earlier, there were reports that Balochistan caretaker Chief Minister Nawab Ghous Bakhsh Barozai had talked to Akhtar Mengal on phone and urged all political parties to come forward to improve socio-economic and political situation in the province.


A large number of his supporters received him at the Jinnah International Airport.

The question here is the violation of Balochistan sovereignty, Pakistan didn't occupy Balochistan by referendum or so, but by brutal force, neither, in my opinion, would leave, provided that it depends on Balochistan for its survival.
