After Modi government's major move on Kashmir, now #BalochistanIsNotPakistan trends on Twitter
New Delhi, Aug 6 (IBNS): A day after the Indian government took major decisions in connection with Kashmir by scrapping Article 370 and Article 35A, a fresh hashtag '#BalochistanIsNotPakistan' is currently trending on Twitter.
Several netizens, mostly Indians, said Balochistan will soon taste independence.
Balochistan is a region roiled by insurgency against Pakistan and for a long time now it is witnessing a series of abduction and extradjudicial killings by the Pak authorities.
Since Pakistan annexed the autonomous Baloch state of Kalat in 1948, the region witnessed insurgency which peaked in the recent decade even as Pakistan cracked down on the movement heavily. Balochistan is now split between Pakistan and Iran.
People in Balochistan are demanding a separate state independent from Pakistan.
One Gautam tweeted: " Dear Balochistan brothers and sister, Don’t worry abot anything. India will help you. #BalochistanIsNotPakistan."
Another Santosh posted: "To All Keep trending #BalochistanIsNotPakistan."
Another Simanta said: "Free Balochistan from Pakistan Atrocities #BalochistanIsNotPakistan #GlobalTerroristPakistan."
Another Bobby tweeted: "Stop killing baloch people's , independency is right of baloch's. they want freedom.! #BalochistanIsNotPakistan
