Let Baluchis, Pak sort out things

While I am sorry at the sad killing of Akbar Bugti, the Baloch leader, I do not agree with the views gaining currency in India that India should support the struggle of the Baloch people.

Balochistan is an integral part of Pakistan like J&K and Punjab are integral parts of India. When we do not like Pakistan's sending terrorists to either J&K or Punjab and do not want Pakistan to interfere in our internal affairs, we should also not interfere in the internal affairs of Pakistan.

Let the Balochis settle their issues with Pakistan as Pakistanis. Similarly, we should not make any comments or interfere in the affairs of Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan Tamils are Sri Lankan citizens and should settle their issues with the Sri Lankan government in a peaceful non-violent manner.

India's interference either in Balochistan or in Sri Lanka would further deteriorate our relations with Pakistan and Sri Lanka. What we do not want to be done to us, we should not do that to others.
