The report had suggested that the talks of a citizenship in India had been going on even before Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had raised the Balochistan issue in his Independence Day address. The Ministery of External Affairs of India, though, had denied these reports and said that no such decision had been taken yet. Bugti had also denied any such reports.
Earlier in August, Indian prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his Independence Day address to the country had raised the inhuman atrocities carried out by Pakistan in the Balochistan region. Modi had warned Pakistan to stay out of India’s internal matters. Failing to do so would result in an international exposure of Pakistan’s activities in the Balochistan region, he had added. The Asian Human Rights Commission had also come up with reports showing the tortures the people of Balochistan had been enduring at the hands of Pakistan military.
