Sartaj Aziz slams Modi over his remarks on Balochistan  

Sartaj Aziz slams Modi over his remarks on Balochistan   

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz has strongly criticized Indian PM Narendra Modi over his remarks on Balochistan in his Independence Day speech.

In a statement issued by Foreign Office, Sartaj Aziz said, “Modi’s reference to Balochistan, which is an integral of Pakistan, only proves Pakistan's contention that India through its main intelligence agency RAW, has been fomenting terrorism in the province.”

The adviser went on to say this was also confirmed by the public confession of RAW's active service Naval Officer, Kulbhushan Yadav

He further said that Modi is trying to divert world’s attention from Kashmir where over 70 innocents have been martyred and 6,000 injured over the past five weeks. There is constant curfew and complete media blackout for the past 37 days.

“These events have nothing to do with terrorism. It is an indigenous movement for self-determination, a right promised to the Kashmiris by the UN Security Council”, he remarked.

Sartaj Aziz said, “India should recognize that the core issue of Kashmir cannot be resolved by bullets. It requires a political solution, through serious negotiations between India and Pakistan.”
