کوئٹہ (سنگر نیوز)بلوچ اسٹوڈنٹس آرگنائزیشن آزاد کے چیئرپرسن بانک کریمہ بلوچ نے ایک آن لائن نیوز ایجنسی بلوچستان ٹائمز کو انٹر ویو دیتے ہوئے کہا کہ چونکہ وہ ایک ریاست کی قبضہ گیریت کے خلاف جدوجہد کررہے ہیں، اس ریاست کی میڈیا و عدلیہ سمیت تمام ادارے ریاست کے ستون ہیں جو کہ انہی کی پروگرام و پالیسیوں کے محافظ ہیں۔
پاکستانی میڈیا بلوچ قومی تحریک کو غلط رنگ دینے کے لئے منفی پروپگنڈہ کررہی ہے تاکہ بلوچ قومی تحریک کو دیگر طاقتوں کا پراکسی ثابت کیا جا سکے۔ پاکستانی میڈیا چونکہ آزاد نہیں ہے اس لئے وہ ہمارے موقف کو پیش کیے بغیر ہمارے خلاف پروپگنڈہ کررہی ہے۔
Baloch Canadians expressed their anger at the Pakistan Army retired officers celebrating their so-called “victory day” in the 1965 war against India at Mississauga, Canada.
