Geneva [Switzerland]/ Paris [France], Sept. 2 (ANI): Slamming Pakistan for accelerating the process of obtaining Interpol's red warrants against exiled Baloch separatist leader Brahamdagh Bugti, spokesperson of Baloch Republic Party (BRP) Sher Mohammad Bugti said that Islamabad should first introspect and realize that it is the factory of terrorism, adding that India should highlight this issue.

"The seeking of Red Corner Notice against Brahamdagh Bugti by Pakistan is not a big thing because it has to first think of itself that are they as clean as they represent? They have factory of terrorism, actors of terrorism in their country," Mohammad Bugti told ANI.

Stating that Islamabad should introspect because it is itself a sign of terror in the world, he said that India should highlight how a man raising voice for his rights is treated.

"The international community should see that Pakistan has sought red corner notice against someone raising voice for his rights. India should see this issue and highlight it," he added.

Pressing that Pakistan has been attacking Baloch people with bombs and airstrikes, he reminded that in the past too Pakistan had taken similar step.

"Earlier too, they have filed First Information Report (FIR) and issued red warrants against Brahamdagh Bugti. The international community and people, who are friends of humanity, should think that Pakistan is destructive for the world. Pakistan is such country who wants to destroy world peace," he said.

The Balochistan Police Department had earlier contacted the interior ministry for acquiring the required identification documents of Brahamdagh to complete the 'Red Notice' application requirements for Interpol, reported the Express Tribune.

After the required paperwork is complete, the Pakistan Government would formally contact Interpol for issuing a Red Corner Notice against Brahamdagh for his extradition to the country.

Issue of Interpol notices are followed after international requests are made for cooperation or alerts allowing the police in member countries to share critical crime-related information.

Meanwhile, Munir Mengal, President Baloch Voice Foundation, said that such step only shows that Pakistan is insecure about the entire issue.

"With the resistance and uprising from the people in Balochistan you can only imagine the situation that now Chief Secretary of Balochistan Saifullah Chatha has also sought his transfer from the region," he added.

Mengal added that such step also shows that there is fear among the Pakistan establishment and authorities that the people of Baloch have decided that it does not want to stay with Pakistan.

Reports suggest that according to the identification details submitted by the Balochistan Police, the 33-year-old chief of Baloch Republican Party (BRP) is known in his close circles as "Sahib".

He came to prominence recently after appreciating Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remarks on the human rights violations in Balochistan which has clearly been denounced by Islamabad.

Brahamdagh is the grandson of former Balochistan chief minister Nawab Akbar Bugti, who was killed during a controversial military operation in Kohlu in 2006.

During the operation, he fled to Afghanistan and subsequently moved to Switzerland after Pakistan asked Kabul to hand him over in 2010.

So far, five separate cases under Sections 120, 121, 123 and 353 of the Pakistan Penal Code have been registered against Baloch separatist leaders, including Brahamdagh, Harbiyar Marri and Banyuk Karima Baloch, for hailing the Indian Prime Minister statements. (ANI)
