In a statement that could embarrass Pakistan, which has claimed that India is fuelling unrest in Balochistan, a Baloch Senator has said there is no proof that New Delhi is fomenting trouble there.

“We don’t have a proof. As a representative of Baloch people and a leader of a National Party, I have no information on this. Maybe, intelligence agencies of India and Pakistan have knowledge about it,” said Baloch leader and Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo on Tuesday.

He was replying to queries after the release of the autobiography of his father the late Mir Ghaus Bakhsh Bizenjo titled In Search of Solutions.

He was asked whether he, as a leader of Balochistan, was aware of India’s involvement in the region.

Asking India to realise the threat posed by terrorism in its neighbourhood, the Senator said terror emanating from Afghanistan reached Pakistan in no time and New Delhi should keep this fact in mind.

The war “fought in Afghanistan [in 1980’s] did not bother Pakistanis. But ultimately Peshawar or Frontier [in Pakistan] bore the brunt on a daily basis...

“If, India and Iran along with Afghanistan and Pakistan do not devise a strategy then it has every potential to reach in these countries,” he said.
