The Baloch Republican Party held a protest in the German city of Leipzig on Saturday after Brahumdagh Bugti, the party's president, claimed that the Pakistan government has unleashed a "tsunami of human rights violations" upon the people of Balochistan. Supporters of the party raised the Indian flag at the protest, and came out to raise slogans and protest for freedom of Balochistan from Pakistan's atrocities.
Bugti also thanked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for raising the issue of the plight of the people in the Pakistani province. "It is for the first time that an Indian Prime Minister has spoken," he said. "I am thoroughly indebted to Prime Minister Modi. I thank Prime Minister Modi for speaking, raising the voice of Baloch people in his Independence Day address."
Members of the separatist group, the Baloch Republican Party, are holding events in Europe to commemorate the killing of Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti by Pakistani army 10 years ago. Brahumdagh Bugti is his grandson.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on Aug. 15, raised the issue of the human right violations in Balochistan during his Independence Day address that was delivered from the Red Fort.
Since his statements, many Baloch leaders have expressed gratitude to Modi for bringing to international attention the excesses on the hands of the Pakistan security forces being suffered by the people of Balochistan.
"The Baloch are also human. Treat us as Human Beings," asserted some of the protesters.
"Tum kitne (Akbar) Bugti maaroge, har ghar se Bugti nikalega," protesters shouted, referring to the killing of Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti.
