India should support Balochistan separation if Jadhav is executed: BJP MP

Published: April 11, 2017

A member of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said New Delhi should support Balochistan’s separation if Kulbushan Jadhav is executed.

“If Pakistan hangs Jadhav then India must recognise Balochistan as an independent country,” BJP MP Subramanian Swamy tweeted.

Swamy’s statement comes a day after Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav – who was caught from Balochistan last year and who has confessed to fomenting terrorism in Pakistan – was awarded the death penalty in an unprecedented decision that immediately sparked a bitter diplomatic spat between the two hostile neighbours.

India will go out of its way to save Jadhav from death row: Sushma Swaraj

The ultra-right Hindu politician went on to say, “And after Jadhav, if Pakistan does another atrocity, Sindh will be seceded out of Pakistan.”

Earlier today, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj called Jadhav “a son of India” and warned the Pakistani government “to consider the consequences for our bilateral relationship if they proceed on this matter”.

Further addressing the Parliament, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said Jadhav has a valid Indian visa, hence cannot be categorised as a spy.

Self-confessed Indian spy awarded death sentence

Identified as Kulbushan Sudhir Jadhav, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent had been operating in Pakistan disguised as Hussein Mubarak Patel and was tried on charges of espionage and sabotage activities in Pakistan.

Jadhav was arrested on March 3 last year during a counter-intelligence operation from the Mashkel area of Balochistan. A few weeks later, the army had released his recorded confessional statement in which he had admitted to have been working for RAW to stoke unrest and instability in Pakistan.

    @Perspective: So you need an outside person (PM Modi) to promote unity among your people? That’s not very encouraging. BTW, I’m happy you too want another term for our hardworking PM. He’s a blessing for us too. No disguise here.Recommend

    “I hope this Indian government period gets extends to 10 years”
    Your wish is granted. Do you think this 10 year extension is sufficient? Actually it is going to be extended in perpetuity.
    “because they are blessing in disguise to Pakistan and we are more UNITED then ever”
    What a strange coincidence!!!!!
    I also think this government is a blessing in disguise to India and we are more UNITED than ever before and more strong and prosperous.
    For a change both Pakistanis and Indians want one and the same thing!!!!!!!!! Amen, Amen & Amen. Recommend

    Subramanian Swamy Jee,

    Before giving this statement have you ever thought that not only Pakistan but all 57 OIC Member countries will also recognize, Kashmir, Khalistan, Nagaland, Tripura, Assam, Meghalaya and Mizoram states in India, as Independent Countries.

    And with the recognition of 7 states by 57 OIC member countries in India, as independent countries will make things much easier for the total breakup of India as many other states will also follow the suit.

    Balochistan will remain an integral part of Pakistan, inshaAllah, as it is not E. Pakistan where India sent 300,000 of her trained soldiers (of the Indian army), in civilian dresses posing as Mukti Bahinis and the air supply line of Pakistan was also cut off.

    Kalbhushan and all of his associates are to be hanged within a day or two, come what may.

    Allah-ho-Akbar, Pakistan Zindabad Recommend

    If the statements by this nut prove anything, it is that the confessional video of Mr. Yadav (alias Mubarak Patel) was true and that is exactly what he was operating in Pakistan for. In addition, we must remember that when this psychopath said that they must fire Mr. Rajan, that’s exactly what happened; thereby, proving that what he says is actually state policy and not some fringe gibberish.Recommend
