PTI | United Nations | Sept 26, 2016: In a sharp rebuke to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s “tirade” on Kashmir, India today said those accusing others of rights violations must introspect as it censured Pakistan for the first time at the UNGA for perpetrating the “worst form of state oppression” in Balochistan.
Taking a veiled dig at Pakistan, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in her address at the 71st UN General Assembly (UNGA) session said there are nations “in our midst” where UN designated terrorists roam freely and deliver “their poisonous sermons of hate with impunity”, an apparent reference to Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed.She also made a strong pitch for isolating such nations who speak the language of terrorism and for whom sheltering terrorists has become “their calling card“.
It is the Pakistani Army that always tends to solve the problem through force, by picking people from their houses, torturing and killing them and throwing their bodies on the roadside.

At a time when Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been speaking of “atrocities” in Jammu and Kashmir and the right of the people to determine their own future, Baloch nationalist leader Brahumdagh Bugti says this is precisely what the people of Balochistan want as they seek to unshackle themselves from Islamabad.
At the same time, the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) president, who lives in exile in Switzerland, said he was open to dialogue if that would arrive in a “decent way” in which “Pakistan quits our country”, as he expressed confidence that India would accept his request for asylum, now referred to the Union Home Ministry.
Bugti spoke on myriad issues during an hour-long telephonic conversation with IANS.
He also accused the Pakistani Government of misinforming the world community about the Balochistan issue
