    This history should be known to all, Kurdistan is the largest stateless nation on the planet, millions of people forced to squat on their own land stolen from them, and still the most honourable and courageous foe ISIS faces, Back the Kurds, Free Kurdistan and we will stop ISIS in their inhumane tracks!

    Pakistan could not keep Bangladesh, are finding it hard to hang on to Baluchistan, but still want Kashmir! Its like a child wanting a toffee from his dad who won’t give it to him!

    • August 18, 2016 at 5:42 AM

      When Pakistan too goes down pining for Kashmir, every Pakistani will sing this popular Bollywood song from yesteryears (immortalized by Lata):
      “Hum the jinke saharey
      woh huey na hamarey
      Doobi jab apni nayya
      samne the kinare”.
      Pakis are indoctrinated lot. Few have been able to see clearly what is wrong with Pakistan.

    We sound and read things and know history on Merit. Instead I consider it very genuine and condemn people who speak against Humanity

    Why not Indian government supporting Balochistan Freedom movement…Govt should be start supporting Balochistan movement and take their human right issues to UM and other world forums…..that the right reply to Pakistan sponsored terrorism in India

    One traveler’s account on Baluchistan-

    ‘If you see the flag of Pakistan in Balochistan, you are either on the Balochistan University campus in Quetta or at the provincial assembly – or, more alarmingly, within metres of a checkpost manned by the Frontier Corps (FC), the paramilitary force that controls the province. Nowhere else in this, the country’s largest province by area, will you see the national flag. On the contrary, flags of Azad Balochistan are a dime a dozen, adorning shops, houses, streetlights and random poles. Schools in the province – even those administered by the government – start their day not with ‘Pak ser zameen’ (the national anthem), but with ‘Ma chukki Balochani’, the anthem of Azad Balochistan. Here, the Pakistani state, army and paramilitary forces are figures of hate, while the sarmachar (Baloch ‘freedom fighters’) are considered heroes.”
