India is trying everything to diplomatically isolate Pakistan on the international platform. And in such an effort, India is believed to provide asylum to the Baloch Leader Brahmdag Bugti. This action by India might face heat from Pakistan and some other partners of Pakistan, but now India is looking committed to raising the Balochistan issue among the international community.
According to the reports, the Indian government is in final stages of granting asylum to exiled Baloch nationalist leader Brahumdagh Bugti, who is also the founder of Baloch Republican Party (BRP).
Sources in the Ministry of Home Affairs said the government was looking for a “right place” for his “comfortable stay”.
Sources in the foreigner’s division of the ministry, who are processing Bugti’s asylum application, said they had sent a note to the Research &Analysis Wing (RAW), asking it to provide a tentative list of people who would possibly accompany Bugti to India.
In a bid to finalise the proposal, ministry officials have already revisited the files related to the asylum granted to Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama in 1959, as currently there are no rules to regulate such foreign nationals. “Bugti and his supporters may be given resident certificates by an executive order and thus will become political protectees in India, as is the case with Dalai Lama and his supporters,” said a senior MHA official.
Well, if this is going to happen, this will be a tight slap to Pakistan as it always rejected Indian Claims of Dawood Ibrahim and many other most wanted terrorists staying in Pakistan.
Last month, Bugti had approached the Indian mission in Geneva and made a formal plea seeking asylum in India, which the Ministry of External Affairs had forwarded to the MHA to take a final call. The Baloch leader, currently living in Switzerland, intends to move near his homeland to carry forward his campaign for a “free Balochistan”.
