While in practical terms this did not translate into any significant change in India's approach to the Baloch issue, used the stray statements issued by to demonise our seven-decades-old struggle for independence as an India-sponsored movement," Naela said.

"We would also like to appeal to and other countries to support Baloch organisations working to educate our children and to promote Baloch language, things that we can only dream of within Pakistan-occupied where the garrison state is actively destroying our culture, our language and the education, i.e., the future of our children," she stated.
